In the last few years that my daughter's been to sleep away camp, we've needed a place to stay overnight. To be honest, the places that we've tried haven't been that great. I think the Hancock is the best of the choices in the area. I gave it four stars instead of three because it's above average for the area. Room was clean, beds were reasonably comfortable, decor is nice, air conditioning was fine. The "free" breakfast is a joke-- they have a normal breakfast menu in their restaurant but the "free" breakfast is not from the menu. You are limited to smaller portions and no substitutions. They would be better off just giving you a coupon for $5 off your breakfast in the restaurant, which would feel less like a bait and switch. All that being said, I want to reiterate that if you must stay nearby, this is a good choice, and I plan on staying here next summer when dropping off my daughter at sleep away.
