Good if you have to visit ETS

Pros: Request a balcony room on second floor.
Cons: Bathrooms are tiny. Rooms come without fridges. Bar closes at 23pm. Pool heating broke, repairs took over 2 weeks.
Location: You can walk across ETS campus.
Had to stay at the hotel for a longer period in order to work with ETS. Without a car, the hotel is pretty much the only option. Reservation process tends to get messy because of their reception staff. I was forced to move rooms during my stay. Super short notice! Reception unwilling to make up. Also, room service would always forget about something, e.g. replacing Keurig coffee tabs. Dinner menu has no changes so you will be bored after a few days.

Don't Go There

This is the worst hotel I have stayed in the Princeton area...I thought I was booking a 4 star hotel...I was put in the attic of an old house off from the main hotel. There were bugs, no hot water (no bath, only a shower and pedestal sink) and the door in my bedroom led to a fire escape which would not lock. In fact, they had a screen porch side latch that even that wouldn't work. I complianed to management and nothing was done. I checked out in the middle of the night and booked a room at another hotel. Cost me a lot, but my security bwas worth it. This place is out in the middle of nowhere and not confinent to most areas of Princeton. I have no clue why anyone would think this is a 4 star hotel. It should not be rated higher than a 2.5 star, if that.

Large Silent & Wonderful

Over the weekend, this huge place is practically deserted and hence very quiet. \nI had a spacious room with door to outside patio and second story skylights ; an outstandingly comfortable bed and great bathroom. The breakfast buffet was just average - nothing especially fresh or creative. The pool is not very inviting - small and paved all round; no shade. The service (both restaurant and front desk) was casual and friendly. Overall, it is great value for the price because of the high quality of the room and the grounds.\n

Price and Woodsy Location

We had a lovely stay at Chauncey Conference Center. We thought about staying at one of the many hotels along noisy Route 1, but because of the price and woodsy location, we chose Chauncey and are so glad we did!\n\nOur room had a very high ceiling and skylight, plus a balcony (which we didn't use because it was cold out, but we appreciated it anyway). The room was spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated.\n\nWe had no problems at all with the front desk staff, in contrast to what others have encountered. We did get lost finding the hotel (the one drawback to its location), but we called the hotel at 1 AM (our flight had been delayed), and the friendly clerk patiently talked us through the maze of buildings at ETS. Our other interactions with staff were also pleasant.\n\nWe'd definitely stay there again.\n\n\n
