Beautiful New Jersey(You Were Expecting Amsterdam?)

Review--Kim's Hotel, North Brunswick, NJ.

We called the hospitable owner of the hotel after an unexpected 5-hour delay stranded us in lovely Newark. We enjoyed running to the gate to find that our flight to Amsterdam had departed ten minutes previously. (three hours late).

The proprieters graciously picked us up from the airport. Accommodations were charming, and the hotel's young, attractive staff provided a delightful diversion and Australian snacks. We particularly appreciated the offer of a beverage of our choice. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom well equipped, and our son slept well on the sofa. He found the early wakeup call was very effective, a small dog launching herself on him.

Breakfast was outstanding, and particularly commented upon by our son, who remarked that his mother never puts out such a spread. In lovely baskets, even.

Entertainment was further provided by the young staff in the morning, and then our hostess took us on a tour of the local houses of higher education in a convertable. A ride to the airport was included in the price.

Amy, it was a pleasure having you. :)

I look forward to the ST Review. Perhaps we will now be able to include B and Bs as favourites! :-)

Yikes, Amy -- how frustrating to race for the gate and miss your flight by such a narrow margin. I hope by now you're finally on your way to Europe!

However, Kim's Hotel sounds like a wonderful consolation...I'd love to have such a wake-up call and fabulous breakfast. And on such short notice! If I'm ever in NJ, I must look this place up!

I am sorry to hear of all the stress at the airport but am glad to hear that you were able to book at Kim's hotel. It sounds like a much better place to stay than any of the airport hotels, especially with all the added amenities! Great review!

Kim:

Y'all are welcome :D!

Oh sorry to hear that you got stranded - but glad to hear that you found a quaint BB to take you in! As Sandra says, I will have to look it up next time I am there...
