The room was not what the pictures presented. The walls had holes in them, some were patched and not painted. The room was dirty, and the bedding was not fresh.

The room was spacious, beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. Each room has a private entrance. I only wish there was a way to get into the bathroom without going through the bedroom. There is a fee of $75+ for a pet.

Front desk staff was super nice. Indicated that the one bedroom suites had sold out so he was moving us to a two bedroom suite. Very clean, very friendly, extremely quiet. My only complaint is that they close the pool at 8 PM. That seems a little early especially in the summer.

JK, We really appreciate your great comments in reference to our staff as well as our facilities. We do understand the hours of the pool is regulated by our brand so we do apologize for any inconveniences in reference to time of pool closing. We look forward to accommodating you in the future. Thank you, Tanzania Steele Operations Manager

It's an OK place.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
It got off on a bad foot. I was put in a room at the farthest end of the complex. Normally not a problem but when I am alone I don't like walking to the back of a complex alone at night where there is minimal lighting. Unlocked the door and discovered that there was no electricity in the main sitting room. There WAS electric in the bedroom/kitchen. I was not able to figure out the problem (burned out bulb, for instance) so I called the desk and asked for another room, only to be told there was none. Waited for several hours for someone to come and check out the problem; maintenance guy couldn't figure it out either for awhile. Eventually determined the lamps and tv were on a ground fault interruptor. Strange. Once it was reset I had power again. By then it was too late to go out to dinner and I just went to bed and forgot dinner. The next night I had no issues with the room. But when I got to my conference and everyone was talking about where they were staying, it sure seemed as though I could have done better. I didn't feel like I was a valued customer. Perhaps it was just because it was very busy because it was a few days before Rutgers graduation and the facility was full. But is that really a good excuse? It is not a bad place....and the maintenence guy told me it is going to be totally renovated soon. But next time I would stay somewhere else.

Home away from home

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, Free breakfast
Cons: Poor breakfast, box tv poor reception
Great find close to Rutgers which was our reason for the trip. The one miner flaw was the breakfast. While it is nice to have a full breakfast option, I thought the quality of the food offered was not as good as other places I've stayed with a similar menu and set up. However, this would not deter me from staying here again.

Good Hotel

I would stay here again. The suites are very spacious, morning breakfast has a wide variety offered and lite dinner is served from Tues to Thrus which is good too.

So comfortable, so family friendly!

I booked a two bedroom suite for the July 2010 weekend of my sister in law's wedding. My husband and I brought our babysitter and our children (ages 7,4 and 2). The room was perfect, the pool was a total bonus, the beds and pillows were comfortable, and we all enjoyed the hot delicious breakfast foods. I have allergies and a sensitivity to perfumes. When our room air freshener was too strong for me, the management was very responsive to my plea for help. They immediately sent someone to remove the air freshener from the HVAC and continued to help help until we were all comfortable. I hope we are able to stay again someday soon!

Staybridge stay

My husband and I attended an event and needed a place for one night. Staybridge was a really nice place to stay, the room was clean and spacious. The full kitchen was nice to have but of course, since we only stayed for one night, we weren't able to use it at all. The continental breakfast was so much better than ones offered at any other hotels. We will certainly plan to stay again!
