Chauncey Hotel & Conference Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The grounds are beautiful and the location is good. The staff were friendly and the included breakfast buffet was great. However, the TV didn’t work for about 90% of our stay, which was unacceptable. There was a “weak signal” error of some sort that could not be resolved. There was no mini fridge in the room which I think of as standard these days in a hotel room at this price range. The doors to the rooms and balconies are very heavy, metal doors and many times a day/night we could hear doors loudly slamming near our room, sometimes shaking the walls.

The room was fine but the customer service was very poor. Front Desk clerk who checked us in seemed confused and untrained. Tried to put us in a room near a large wedding party rather then consider that we might not want to be near the noise. Room Service took 45 minutes .

Loved the campus setting the hotel is on. Beautiful hotel with lots of nice areas to relax-lounges with fireplaces, room with patio, all quite cozy and charming.

The Chauncey conference center is conveniently located for me and It offers great service excellent food and a very courteous staff

The staff were extremely friendly and overall experience was ok. We rented the room to have access to the indoor pool amidst this very cold winter. The pool was salt water, a happy surprise, and in a temperature controlled room. My two year old had a real blast. The breakfast buffet was also great. HOWEVER, the room was not as clean as I would have liked. Upon opening the drawer under the nearby bed lamp there was a clump of hair just laying there. Very disgusting. Then in the AM as I was pulling the drapes to let the sun in I realized there was a rather large hole in the wall (the size of a good tray) that had been partially hidden behind a chair. God knows what was crawling in there, we left shortly after. Lastly, the heating system is very loud and extremely disruptive. There was also a loud whistle that sounded occasionally in the bathroom. Omg, no air vent in the bathroom! Good luck if someone uses the bathroom for #2. Lastly, we were on the bottom floor. Not usually a problem except for the paper thin walls. We heard every step and every bed movement from the upstairs guests. If you need a break from winter and just want to visit the pool I recommend it. I would not however stay there overnight again.

Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is warm.

Staff were lovely. Unfortunately, coffee machine broken and tv did now work well

Clean, very comfortable, great breakfast, convenient for Princeton and surrounding area
