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

We should have read Trip Advisor before we booked our reservations. To be fair, our location was excellent - right off of Bestor Plaza. The appliances were up to date and worked very well, and the food was very good. It was quiet. However..... 1. Our apartment had ancient mattresses that had a vile smell and were so broken down,...

My room had a terrible moldy smell, was ill maintained and needed a serious clean. The bed was more of a cot, and the room held seemingly random pieces of furniture. While the location was excellent, there are much better choices for the price.

Beware. We had room 30 at the Tally Ho. No one should ever stay there and it's ridiculous that the owners rent it out. It's so musty it's a hazard to your health. It's absolutely disgusting as the smell just permeates the air. The windows don't open so there's no way to ventilate the room, and the smell is so... More
