Throughout its history, Central Jersey has been a major crossroad, on the main routes between Philadelphia and New York. Consequently, our tradition of hospitality goes way back. Travelers of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries would be jealous of the quality accommodations we offer today, whether you seek a luxury hotel in a bucolic setting, a quaint historic inn, or a budget-conscious hotel on a major thoroughfare.
