We were so excited to find the Clinton Inn, which was a perfect halfway meeting spot between Baltimore and Boston. Prices were reasonable, there's free parking, and there's a bus right outside the hotel that takes you into NYC. Best of all, we were able to have our Thanksgiving dinner at Palmer's Crossing, right downstairs. The service was amazing, the... More

We were in N J for a family event. The Clinton Inn is where the whole family was staying. Our room was spacious with a queen sized bed. At first glance everything looked clean & acceptable. We noticed an overwhelming odor of chlorine. The ceiling in the bathroom was full of mold. They may have treated it before we checked... More

I stayed there to avoid traveling 5 miles, wish I could have paid attention to the previous reviews. This hotel is old, not clean and the noisiest I have ever been to.

My stay at the Clinton Hotel was good. I was there for a wedding and stayed 2 nights. The room was clean and had everything I needed. The front desk was very cordial. Check in and check out was very easy. The bed was comfortable. Towels were of good quality and abundant. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

I recently stayed at the Clinton Inn hotel for a family event. The lobby was fine as was the restaurant. The rooms are another story. The carpet is old, dirty and moldy.

The facility is ideally situated for travelers. It offers a mix of facilities.

The Clinton Inn accommodated my husband's 50th high school reunion very well, with meeting rooms, the bar, and individual rooms.

“If you must come to the Clinton Inn, ask for a room with a working AC unit.”
  • Exposed pipes underneath bathroom sink.
  • upper corner in the ceiling, just above AC unit.  The whole wall have signs of moisture damage
