Needed a one night stay near Cornell for family
Booking through Travelocity. Booked the large Hamilton Suite with a pull out for myself, husband and twins.. Called ahead Friday evening (for Friday night stay) and was told Expedia made a mistake and booked different room. No garden view- instead on highway side. No pull out. Owner was nice and brought in full size mattress for floor. This would have been ok but room was terrible. Unbelievable noise through the night- sounded like HVAC system was next to us in bed. Room was super hot. King Mattress really needs to be replaced- large valley in middle. No literature in room re: wifi password, touring grounds etc.. Bathroom ceiling started leaking heavily from above while we were there. Called owner and he was surprised but this was clearly an old leak by cracks in ceiling pain. Coffee machine in room without creamer. We were looking for a nice place to rest our heads after a long day touring Cornell and none of us slept due to noise. It’s a baeatiful place, probably great for weddings but full service and quiet, it isn’t.
