Cinnaminson, New Jersey
August 5, 2005
Slightly out of the way, but not difficult to find, this very affordable hotel is very clean and well-maintained in huge contrast to most other Etaps.
When we arrived around 6pm, there wasn’t anybody at the hotel except a guy at the reception who was very nice and quick to understand what we wanted. At night, a lot of people arrived, and in the morning, there were about 15 cars in the parking lot. The hotel is a yellow, two-story building with green shutters and a window and balcony all in one that you can open and let the air in. At night, you can cover it with a full-length shade. As typical for any Etap, each room has a queen-size bed with a bunk bed above it that you can climb to via an attached ladder. What surprised me was the cleanliness of the shower and toilet in the bathroom. The bathroom was a very decent size with a normal toilet, sink with mirror, and a shower that closes with a plastic door. There was also a corner desk with a chair, TV, and heater near it that actually was adjustable and worked. There was also a rather large area for you to bring your luggage, and you could easily have enough space for three to four large bags. The hotel has a cafeteria area for breakfast in the lobby. Breakfast costs an extra 4€ per person.
