I have been coming to Chautauqua for many years and I really enjoy staying at the Tally Ho. conveniently located right next to the Bestor Plaza and within a short walking distance to the amphitheater. Our room was comfortable and kept clean and the staff was friendly. As an added bonus, there is a restaurant attached to the hotel with... More

We stayed here for the first week of this 2014 season and loved it. The hotel itself is old but is loaded with charm and character. It's typical of the Chautauqua institute. What made it even better was the unlimited food that came with our room and the friendliness of everyone especially Jason (the owners son). Jan at the front... More

We stayed at the Tally Ho Hotel last summer and will be back again this year. The location is fantastic; right off Bestor Plaza, and our room was clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant attached to the property serving an extensive menu that changes daily. The wait staff we met was efficient and personable and the food is some... More

This was our fourth year going to Chautauqua for a week's program, but our first time at Tally Ho. I had read the reviews here, and our visit had an ominous beginning. I mailed a deposit check in May for a week in late August, Apartment #7, but got no confirmation. In early August I sent a letter, two emails... More

We had hoped the tally ho would live up to old fashioned charm but I am sorry to say that the plumbing was not finished for the season upon our arrival and the owner was not even aware until we told her.. She lost the first check we paid her with and demanded another. They do not take credit cards... More

In nearly thirty seasons I have never before eaten at the Tally-Ho. Finally, an opportunity presented itself and we showed up for the buffet earlier this month. So 'unusual' was it that I decided to share it with the Trip Advisor community. Dining at the Tally-Ho is offered until 7:30 pm, in plenty of time for the evening entertainment at... More

An angry hotel guest was it at the restaurant countet and was really laying in to the old manger woman who appeared to be dazed, unconcerned and patronizing. The customer was irrate, "I paid $1100 for this room and there is no place to sit but a wire metal soda fountain Coke chair. There are still no sheets on the... More

The European buffet was disappointing. Best part was the dessert. However, the young waiters and waitresses were attentive and friendly. Credit cards are not accepted - a fact that was kept hidden. There was a small sign partially concealed by the cash register. A notice that credit cards are not accepted should be visible when entering the restaurant. We will... More

This place is absolutely disgusting! How can a place like this pass a health inspection? Inconceivable. The rooms reek of mould and mildew. The furniture is of the kind that you couldn't even sell at a thrift shop. The mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable and I'm used to camping. I would have been more comfortable on the floor with an air... More

I've now stayed at this great "old" hotel in the chautauqua Institute for several years. The entire staff makes you feel like you're an invited special guest of yesteryear. The rooms are old and original and perfectly beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen makes great and varied food and there's always something for everyone. This place epitomizes Chautauqua and if you... More
