    « Not worth the money »

    Overpriced for what it was. I've definitely had better rooms for less money. When we arrived, things got off to a bit of a bad start, there were cheezits and popcorn bits on the floor. The tv kept losing its signal, we had to try to tighten the connections, see if that would help. The fridge wouldn't cool much at all, we used ice from the ice machine in bags as if it were a cooler rather than a fridge. The breakfast was pretty lacking. The fruit didn't look very fresh (apples and oranges every day). The potatoes should be a safe bet, but these were bad, as were the eggs. No bacon for the 3 mornings we were there (over a wkd), just sausage. The orange juice tasted bad. There was a waffle maker, but we wanted more that. We ended up going to the grocery store for our own fresh fruit and yogurt and keeping it in the fridge with bags of ice. The internet was a pain to connect to. Sometimes it took multiple tries for each of us. It has an odd setup that just doesn't work very well, and Norton kept warning us that it wasn't secure. Frustrating. There wasn't a vent in the bathroom, and the room smelled a bit damp. We had a few cool days so we opened the window a bit instead. It helped get some fresh air into the room. Definitely get an outside room, not a courtyard room. Overall, if you need a quick place to stay a night, it's a place to sleep, and the Hannaford grocery store nearby is good for fresh fruit/vegetables. But it's not a very relaxing or enjoyable place. Passable at the $125 rate, but not at all worth the $269+ nights.

    « Great stay! »

    Enjoyed a weekend here with hubby. Most importantly a clean room, friendly staff and good breakfast. Easy access, Right off main highway. Great room for the price, Would defiantly return . Only advice would be take out cups and coffee maker from bathroom, not sanitary.

    « Close to Supercharger »

    We were driving through and just needed a place to lay our heads for the evening. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and quiet (aside from the sound of the AC/Heat unit). Appears to have been recently renovated so good quality.

    « Old and it shows »

    Appearance of lobby was good but hallways and room are very dark in color which makes it gloomy with a dirty feel. Service personnel were very courteous and helpful. Breakfast was good. Ask the desk what your room overlooks.

    « Easy access to highway, good resturant. »

    This property is a nice place to stop when traveling North out of New York City. There is easy highway access to property, which is well marked. There is a good restaurant open late. The service in the restaurant was very good. The meal choices were good. The Caesar Salad was good, as was the shrimp appetizer. Brownie dessert was yummy.

    Place was very nice Night time front desk crew not so nice .i asked if they can fill up the water jug @ the front desk, seemed like I was bothering them . They didn't do it was told the kitchen was busy, she should have said no problem I will take care of it for you

    « It was okey »

    It's an average place. We stayed there for our family ski trip. The Belleayre mountain is 45 minutes away. The personal is nice. The room had a very noisy heater. It was annoying. The restaurant has a good menu.

    « Nice, clean hotel for our family »

    Good, clean hotel. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was good- attendant was friendly and kept everything stocked and clean. Indoor pool has a VERY slippery deck surface. Also- there seemed to be some sort of club and there were people fighting in the hall in the middle of the night- screaming and cursing. Then the hotel security and police decided to stand right outside our door as they dealt with one of the people involved in the fight (and not so quietly either). Check in took a long time because hotels.com didn't book 2 rooms, so the hotel only received our request for 1 room (even though I had booked 2)- this wasn't the fault of the hotel, but the staff did take a very long time trying to deal with it.

    « Overall nice, but a strange layout »

    We stayed there while travelling in the area on business. There are a lot of pluses; the room was clean and quite spacious. The staff is great; very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is about average. There are decent amenities; an indoor pool, a workout room, a large arcade for kids, a full bar and restaurant, some pet friendly rooms (at a reasonable extra charge). The only negatives were that the hallways seemed a bit dingy, and we, for example, had to walk a long way from an entrance to our room, through a number (maybe 5?) doors to get to it. So it gives a somewhat negative first impression. There are 3 "blocks" of rooms built in a triangle around a covered, heated courtyard, which initially seemed very different, but really was quite nice; that's where the pool and other facilities are, and it was a nice way to walk to the breakfast area/office (at least from the interior rooms like ours). It was a little pricey compared to area options, but we booked the same day we stayed.

    Very good hotel. The staff were very friendly. Hotel was clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. My stay was unplanned due to the snowstorm.. I am very happy with the service I received as well as the quality of my room. I give it 4 stars.

    This hotel is near Harrimans outlets, excellent in house dining, the type of service and quality that Best Western is known for. Nice pool - great for families. We greatly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning in the summer.

    « Winter weekend with skiing »

    Excellent location near the Thruway. We stayed two nights and drove to Hunter Mountain to ski, about 40 min away. In the past we have skied at Windham. Excellent buffet breakfast to start the day (included). Pool and game area is a nice addition, especially for the kids. Rooms are clean, beds are extremely comfortable. Nearby there are many eateries, malls, and movie theatre. I would definitely stay again.

    « Questionable staff Over Charge 130USD »

    Within hours of checking into my room, my credit charge had a charge of over $600 Canadian. My room was only supposed to be 366.64USD plus 60USD because I brought a pet--even with the conversion rates, this gets nowhere near 600CAD. I contacted front desk to inquire about this discrepancy. The woman became belligerent (a big word for the intelligent levels of this woman) and rude. She claimed that I knew nothing about taxes and that the room was 431USD plus 60USD PLUS taxes and that my card was charged 491USD "which I owed the hotel". I informed her that the hotel's website and app had listed my room WITH taxes at 366.64USD. She continued with her tirade claiming that I didn't know what I was talking about. I then contacted their customer service line who confirmed that the room was only 366.64USD. I also launched a fraud complaint with the Attorney General as the staff claimed a completely different price than anyone else involved. The rooms are dingy and the first floor smelt of weed I have tried to contact the manager a couple of times and staff began pretending to not understand English. Please, do not stay at this shame of a hotel where the staff try to pocket 130USD for themselves outside of Best Western.

    « OK »

    This hotel was originally a Holiday Inn probably from the 60's. The lobby, lobby bar, and restaurant area has been redone nicely. The room I had was dressed up 5-7 years ago. The bathroom is old and the toilet seat was loose. The carpet could use a cleaning; very dusty in the corners. The heating system was so bad that I had to turn it on for a while, then turn it off... all night long! The pool looked ok but the whirlpool was closed. The bar was great! Had a great meal and good local beer on tap. The bartender was great! Breakfast was also great!

    « Quiet, clean and pet friendly »

    We were in a pet friendly room that was very conveniently located by an outside door with a nice grassy walking area. The room was clean, no smell, and very quiet. Other family members were upstairs in other rooms and thought their rooms were excellent also. The breakfast had many good choices and I can attest to their scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and waffles being pretty good for a breakfast buffet. Staff was helpful and quickly exchanged a hair dryer that had lost its heat. The entire place is definitely upgraded from a time long ago that we had stayed here.

    This was perfect with children pool area and game room made them very hsppy. With s karge group dinner is tougg so we all brought food back to the hotel and ate near the pool. We couldn'tbelieve hoe much space there was in yhe indoor courtyard and pool area. Great amenities.

    Very nice hotel, hidden behind pizza hut. Room clean and comfortable. Check in/out quick. Breakfast was plentiful and very good. Most importantly - great coffee! Only negative would be dark decor in hallways and rooms.

    « Second time there this year »

    Yes, this really is a convenient hotel to stay at if you are in the region - right outside of Kingston (town) - which really is worth checking out - nice stores, nice museums, easy to walk and park and recently should be visited.

    « Nice Place But Expensive »

    Stayed here two nights with a tour bus group. I thought our room was very nice and the beds were comfy. The restaurant was very good but kind of expensive. I would recommend this hotel. Enjoyed my stay.

    « Fire alarms go off in 3 of our 4 rooms »

    We stayed at this hotel this past weekend. In the middle of the night three out of the four rooms we were in had their fire alarms go off. When we called the front desk, no one answered. My husband had to go to the desk to get help. How did they solve the problem in two of our rooms? Well, they just took the detectors out! Great feeling to not have detectors! Not the experience we wanted. The walls were thin and we heard every word of a non stop argument going on in the next room. Not cool either!

    « I was very pleased with my stay at the hotel. »

    Everyone was very friendly and very anxious to make sure everything was alright. The room was very comfortable the beds were excellent, and the restaurant and morning breakfast were delicious. The conference room were very convenient , and also very close to the restrooms, Lunch was delicious and served right outside of the conference room. Breakfast was continental and had a very large variety of food to chose from.

    « Don't get lost at this hotel »

    The overall quality of this hotel is good and the price is fine. Attempting to get to and from your car to your room can be a NIGHTMARE! Poor signage near most exit doors both going in and out. This includes moving within the hotel and going outside

    « Not a ?Plus? »

    Spent three nights here while attending a convention. The rooms are generous, with two queens. The bath is minuscule, which opening the door only complicates. Cell service is basically non-existent. Perhaps this is intentional, to allow the hotel to charge exorbitant long-distance fees for calls on the house phone. Some of my colleagues reported that their rooms did not receive maid service.

    « Average hotel, above-average price »

    Extremely expensive for the service provided, involving multiple requests for basics--sofabed made up, a blanket for same, enough towels so we each had one. That said, the room was immaculate and the breakfast quite good.

    « Hotel perfection, the room and the breakfast! »

    I wanted to take the bed home, what a comfortable and needed good sleep! The staff were welcoming and helpful and were fun to talk to. The halls and room were pristine and most attractive. For a hotel which welcomes dogs there was not one clue or signs or smells of them. The bath rooms were very clean and I appreciated the bottles of shampoo and lotion, plus the shower cap, as well as the amount of generous towels. The breakfast offerings included every breakfast item anyone would wish. The hot items were hot, the juices delicious and there was ample paper plates so the guests could take their breakfast choices out to the car so the drive could get an early start. There were four of us family members and we also felt welcomed and safe. This was the fourth time we have stayed at this Best Western and we all agreed that it would win the blue ribbon!

    « My Stay Best Western Kingston »

    My stay was for one night only but I enjoyed my stay at the hotel, It was very open, inviting, and clean. Staff were courteous and helpful and made you feel welcome to stay. The breakfast was great with a variety of selections to choose from. The room was clean and boasted a very comfortable bed. I would stay there again anytime.

    « Hotel has seen better days »

    Room was dark and needed some additional cleaning around the edges (window sills, etc.). Despite management knowing we were four people, there were only three towels even after complaining about for the 2nd day. Bathroom door stuck badly. One person had trouble getting out. I feel silly complaining about a free breakfast, so I won't. Overall, the facility felt old and worn. It has seen better days. On the positive side, the staff was great, and the restaurant was above average for a hotel restaurant.

    « Great choice for an overnight stay »

    This hotel is clean, modern, very comfortable, safe, and reasonably priced. As it's just off I-87, it's convenient for travelers and easy to find. Rooms are well-decorated and have all expected hotel amenities--and are on a par with many more expensive hotel chains. The mattress was extremely comfortable, with a wide screen TV facing the bed, and the bathroom was modern, clean, and had a nice array of bath products. The hot buffet breakfast was a plus This turned out to be a great choice for a stopping point while travelling.

    « Organized and friendly »

    Stayed her for an event at the nearby Bard College. Check-in was quick and efficient with a porter available if needed. A long walk to the room, but this is a big place with a lot going on. Between the bus business and the events going on in their Conference Rooms, they still had plenty of time for the little person. Breakfast was the standard fare, with plenty laid out. The porter availability was nice as we usually travel with twice the amount of stuff that we need. They were quick and friendly.

    « Erika and Justin's Wedding »

    We stayed in an executive room at Best Western Plus in Kingston for 2 nights so that we could attend a family wedding. The room was large and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The staff was friendly and the pool was fun. We had a free breakfast which was decent. They have a restaurant and bar to hang with family. The food prices were reasonable and good. All in all I would say we had an excellent stay and would definitely return.

    « A bit worn and problem-prone »

    Hotel felt a little old and run down for the price we paid, and that was before the smoke detector went off in the middle of the night and we discovered our phone didn't work (was never fixed during the stay) and the room wasn't properly serviced. We got a partial credit for one of our 3 nights, but this is not a hotel I plan to ever use again.

    « Great stay! »

    Family and I decided to stay at this hotel for one night, this is the first time staying at a Best Western Plus property and I was quite impressed. The hotel appeared to have been renovated within the last few years. Some of the amenities the hotel includes are a business center, fitness center, complimentary breakfast, indoor heated saltwater pool, and arcade. The guestroom and bathroom were also quite upscale and relatively clean, all the fixtures in the room worked well. The room (320) had a unique design, it could be accessed from the interior hallway, and indoor courtyard. A few negatives were the noise and cleanliness issues. Since my room faced the indoor courtyard, at times guests could be sitting in groups talking loudly. In addition, the curtain and chair in the room had two enormous visible stains. Besides those minor issues, the rest of the hotel was well kept. The service was nothing short of spectacular. I would stay at this hotel again but ask for different room type. Preferably a room that faces the parking lot. On a positive note, I can not think of any other hotel that offered such as wonderful breakfast buffet and the fitness center was beyond upscale for a Best Western hotel.

    « very disappointed and pricey »

    We were in Kingston for the w/e and decided to stay here. The good: offers a breakfast which is ok, has a small gym, indoor pool, bed was comfortable and there is good water pressure in shower. The bad......it wasn't clean .......loads of cobwebs on top of curtains and ceiling, and dead insects under bathroom sink. My husband and I actually cleaned the cobwebs off, and I left one dead insect under the sink to see if bathroom was cleaned when we returned back to room. Nope....dead insect still there. In addition, there are no screens so keeping windows open on a beautiful evening was not an option. Reason we didn't report this was because a manager should never let a guest find a room that way! We paid over $200 a night which was way too much and will not be returning.

    4
    « Comfortable and clean with friendly staff »

    My double queen room was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was also quiet, despite being across the hall from the elevator. The breakfast was above average and nicely presented. I would definitely stay here again when in the Kingston area.

    The fire alarm triggered in our room on both nights (3am) that we stayed there. Our room wasn't quiet, we could hear the baby crying on the room next to ours. The location of the hotel wasn't so good. And basically the price wasn't that cheap for what we got

    The hotel was located off the NY State Thruway. This hotel is located very close to the many uptown historic areas. The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful.

    « Priceline hooked me up with the best deal in town! »

    There are several new hotels in Kingston, all in the 200 dollars and up price range. I took a chance on a Priceline deal for 104 and it was for this Best Western. We loved it. It was clean, modern, great shower and toiletries, and the beds were great. Breakfast included a waffle station, which were delicious with a sliced banana. The room had a fridge and microwave, which is always helpful. Our room was quiet, and the pool and hot tub were clean and inviting. I highly recommend it, and already know this is where we will stay next time we need a place close to home.

    « Great place to stay! »

    The staff was welcoming and check-in was efficient. The room was spotless, the bed comfy (though a mite high for me), A/C worked beautifully. My only concern was with the dog-walking area (yes, we had a dog and she felt welcome too). There was no lighting out there, and with it behind the building there was no light from the parking lot. This could have been a problem.

    « Feels like a resort »

    This place is very nice and quiet. They have a beautiful inside pool and play area which is perfect for rainy days. They also have a nice restaurant within the premises and they serve great food for breakfast, lunch and diner. Upon our arrival, The operation manager overheard a request we had and did not wait to be asked and did not hesitate to accommodate us. It's details like these that makes a stay even more enjoyable.

    Stayed here for a wedding. Easy check in. Room was clean and comfortable. Had a mini fridge, which we needed. The breakfast in the morning was a mix of hot and cold options and tasty. We didn't get a chance to use the indoor pool, but it looked nice. There is also an arcade next to it as well. Interior rooms look out onto the indoor pool area (our room was one of these) but it wasn't an issue. Hotel is also extremely easy to access from the Thruway.

    Everything was just right about this Motel with its location ease of parking and entry Etc. The complimentry breakfast was sufficient with an adequate selection to feed any hungry family. Unfortunately the lack of manners and consideration with the group of people who are having breakfast dimmed the experience. I know people don't have manners anymore and the words "excuse me" don't seem to be in anybody's vocabulary. Maybe the hotel at at send out a little primer on good behavior with their hotel confirmations......

    We checked the positive rating and decided to stay here. The reviews were correct. The non-smoking room had two queen beds which were very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small but was designed with safety in mind and very clean. Overall, the accommodations were well planned and relaxing. The indoor pool was warm, clean, and of decent size. Their hot breakfast was excellent and offered many choices such as waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, and oatmeal to name a few. The staff was pleasant and courteous and were eager to assist.

    Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Upon arrival the lobby was decorated nicely and was greeted by 2 smiling faces from your staff. All and all a great stay. Co defence area was large, pool was indoors and clean. I would suggest them to add an additional dryer for guests and replace a washer machine for guest use. Bit this would not affect anyone's stay. We enjoyed our selves and close to a lot of things.

    Traveled with family, stayed one night. Over all hotel was OK. Expected more for the money paid. If we do go back will look for coupons or specials to pay less for a one night stay and will try to find out if there is a conference or a large party staying. Some guests got too loud at night.

    Very nice hotel, surprised at the price, but pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The breakfast was a bit crowded and the staff was a bit aggressive in cleanup (don't walk away to get more sugar for your tea, your plate will be gone as a part of clean-up) Overall this was a really nice hotel. I don't usually frequent BW chain, but I travel every month and will keep them on my radar for now on. :-)

    « Loud ,noisy parking lot »

    If you want to spend a night in Kingston with no sleep that come on down. Your choice is either a room that is at least a fifteen mi it's walk from an elevator OR A room facing the hotels parking lot I slept in a room facing the parking lot and got no sleep because the front desk person allows people to smoke and yell out there even at 4am When I called the front desk to complain the man said Sorry ma'am they have to smoke somewhere! Since when did 4am screaming in a hotel take priority over a hotel guest paying top$$&& Trying to sleep. The female manager in the morning did nothing to rectify this situation. She is a complete incompetent manager. It's a shame Best western doesn't know that their staff is tarnishing the name of best western Please spend your night elsewhere if you need sleep

    « Bartender was the only good thing »

    I must admit, we were tired, hot and hungry when we arrived after riding 9 hours on the cycle. I was not impressed by my first impression of the hotel on the exterior. After checking in we Went to our room and after 2-3 attempts got the door open only to be shocked when a kind gentlemen popped his head out at us. The room was already occupied. Back to the front desk we went. Understand that the hotel is spread out with several entrances/exits and there us no easy way to get to the front desks. They gave us another room and a simple apology for what felt was an over the top screw up. Thankfully the guy already in the room was very understanding. Back to our new room, this time on the 2nd floor only to find no elevator to our room so we lugged our luggage up the steps. No elevator access! Never seen anything so stupid. No elevator! Immediately upon entering the building it smelled musty. The smell was still there when we left the next day. Finally settled in to our room we immediately noticed the a/c was working hard. We set the temp to 60 and it was comfortable but you could tell it was not functioning the way it should.too tired to complain. Went to bed. The next morning we found our way to the complimentary breakfast, down different hallways and steps, not an easy task.. The hallways were dirty. The scrambled eggs were runny and there was no utensil at the bread and bagel area so people simply reached in with their hands. Can't believe that's allowed. Please understand that we stayed at two different Best Western plus hotels the previous 2 nites and were totally satisfied. This place is just old and dirty. And it was more expensive than the two previous nights. The bar tender at the restaurant bar was the only good thing about our stay. Very nice and friendly gentleman. Hate to give bad reviews but I know We will never return to this place. Was so ready to leave! Was prepared to spill the beans at check out when they asked us how our stay was but they never asked. Pathetic from the time we arrived til we left.

    The only reason I went to Kingston was to spend an evening with a close friend who lived 20 minutes away, Sure in a less safe section, it would not have cost me, with tax $240. You pay for the pool, exercise room and game stations. I just do not know how a place like this can survive in Kingston which has an interesting historic section, but what else? Breakfast was good but a very noisy area. Next time i see that friend, it will be in New Paltz and stay at America's Best Value Inn...same nice rooms, if not nicer and a wonderful staff.

    « Family friendly hotel in walking distance to historic uptown Kingston »

    Hotel has large indoor pool for children, clean and well appointed rooms, ample parking and helpful staff. Hotel is walking distance to Dietz stadium(home of Kingston Stockade soccer team), several restaurants and historic uptown Kingston. We considered other major chains, but these were located in highly commercial area of Kingston.

    « Adequate overnight stay »

    Front desk staff was adequately if not accommodating. Room was impeccably clean, aged bathroom tile detracts from the overall rating. Breakfast staff was incredibly professional. Hallway carpet was dark and not welcoming or inviting. All in all the accommodations were adequate and served our purpose for an overnight stay. Nothing special.

    « Overnight Stay »

    My family and I stayed here one night while visiting family. The hotel is conveniently located right off the NY Thruway, which made getting on the road very easy in the morning. The lobby was clean and the staff at the desk was very friendly. The hotel hallways and the rooms were dark. I would suggest updating with lighter decor to make the hotel feel a little more inviting. The room itself was clean. We asked for a crib in the room, and even with that; the room was still easy to move around in. The bathroom was small, but clean. Only complaint was no exhaust fan in the bathroom so it steams up pretty easily. I would probably stay here again if I'm in the area. Breakfast was better than expected. Good variety of hot and cold items to choose from. The breakfast area was large and clean.

    We stayed two nights with our small dog who was welcomed at this pet friendly hotel. They think of the small details. Clean room, noted the addition of a "clean remote", presumably antibacterial properties, for those of us that notice and appreciate such things. Bed was comfy and had a selection of pillows for any sleepyhead that ranged from pancake flat to plump and firmer. The modern decor was nice, it has an indoor pool that closes late at 10pm, and you get free hot breakfast in the a.m. Internet was good as well. Front desk staff very nice. Great little home base for some Upstate road trip adventures!

    « No communication between online reservation and hotel staff? »

    When I originally booked my stay online directly with this chain in November 2016, I clearly indicated I would be traveling with a dog and (medically) needed fragrance free sheets, pillows, and towels, and no air fresheners, yet the hotel staff said it was never informed of these needs, despite it being in the online reservation confirmation that I received. As a result, no "dog" room was originally assigned, and scented air freshener and/or carpet cleaner had been recently used in the "dog" room were recently used, forcing me to use my own sheets and run a HEPA air filter so that I could not cough uncontrollably while on heavy medications to mitigate the fragrance. For the high room price, despite their waiving of the dog fee due to the lack of communication between the web site and hotel, I should not have had to use my own sheets or cough whenever I was in my hotel room. The hotel layout and the remote location of rooms assigned to people traveling with dogs meant we were far from the front desk so could not easily obtain a bellman's cart to move my dog crate and other luggage. The lady at the front desk volunteered a bellman WITHOUT a cart to help me, but without said cart and the long time it took for him to walk the long distance parking area closest to my room, I ended up lugging everything except for the wire dog crate. I checked out earlier than planned so that I could go to a lower-priced hotel chain which has easily accommodated my needs for much less cost per night, with no health problems exacerbated.

    « Nice Rooms, Strange Hotel Arrangement »

    The rooms at this hotel are clean, comfortable, and quiet. The layout of the hotel, however, is unlike anything I have ever seen. Our room had a French balcony overlooking an area which resembled a warehouse interior, complete with overhead metal beams. This cavernous area contained a swimming pool, a fitness area, tables and chairs, and arcade games (randomly spaced apart in this open area). It was truly a strange set-up and made me wonder if this hotel had once been a former factory. Getting to our room involved walking though a maze of corridors, including passing through this "warehouse" are to get to the stairway and elevator. Again, I want to say that the room itself was very nice but the hotel was definitely overpriced (holiday rates) for what it was.

    « Historic Kingston »

    The location of the hotel is excellent due to the proximity to the InterState Highways Able to reach the Kingston Harbor, as well as other tourist attractions in no time by car. I encourage visitors to check out the slow train ride tour of the mountain areas. Wonderful scenery.

    Stayed for one night and the room and hotel was fine so no surprises there. We had a room overlooking the river which was fine but a lot of the rooms overlook and inside area where there is a swimming pool, gaming machines, air hockey, pool tables and some tables and chairs. If I had a room that looked at a gaming machine I think I would find it a little disappointing. I guess I just like daylight! As said though our room was clean and had everything in it so no problem just ask for a room looking outwards would be my advice.

    « Girls weekend to nearby Woodstock »

    Got a great deal on a discount booking site, for a room at the Best Western Plus in Kingston. It is conveniently located off the highway. The first night we went to the indoor salt water pool which was nice & relaxing. We bought cocktails in the bar that they put in plastic cups for use at the pool, which was perfect, although a bit of a walk from the bar to the pool. We ordered room service, burgers, yummy onion rings which was great. There was a mini fridge & microwave which we used for snacks. The beds were comfortable, room was clean, soft bedding. The window on our 2nd floor room (north facing, overlooking a stream) opened but there was no screen (might be a problem in warmer weather with bugs) which was nice for fresh air. Walk in shower modern, water flow was a 10! The configuration of the hotel a bit confusing, on check in we got a map which was helpful. Staff very nice & accommodating. It is an easy drive to Woodstock from here, there are grocery stores nearby. We drove in to old Kingston by the water for early dinner & to walk around, probably 5 minutes from the hotel & worth the trip. Overall a nice place to stay & convenient to area activities & places.

    « Nice Hotel, But With Problems »

    I stayed at the hotel for one night, and found it generally pleasant looking and comfortable, although there was an odd smell in the room. Subtle, but unpleasant. Then in the morning I noticed several problems. First I saw that my sheets were stained; I had been too tired the night before to notice. Then I found a used washcloth hanging on the shower curtain rod and a rag on the closet shelf. I started looking more carefully at the level of cleanliness in the room after I realized housekeeping had not paid much attention to the room. The hotel was reasonable, certainly worth the money. The bed was very comfortable and everything worked properly. But a dirty room is very unpleasant. The phone was very dirty, the particular type of stains on the sheet gave me the creeps, and I am not sure I would be willing to stay there again. The final, but probably inconsequential point was when I checked out. I travel often and am used to the staff at the desk asking how my stay was; not this time.

    « Quiet and comfortable; shower not suitable for someone with a mobility disability »

    I stayed in a room in the wing overlooking the river (glimpses, actually). It was very quiet, except for the noisy a/c in the room, even when on low everything. Shower was excellent -- great pressure and good heat. Bed was good. Wifi was very slow. I was with a group and we had breakfast in the covered area between the wings. Breakfast was good. The room I had had a toilet for someone with mobility issues -- there was a large hand rail bolted into the floor. However, the shower was over the bathtub! If this is a room for a disabled person, why on Earth would there not be a walk-in shower? With a handheld shower spray? instead, you have to get into the bath to have a shower and it's a fixed head shower rose. Others in my group who had standard rooms said they had walk-in showers and no tub, but for some reason this room didn't, yet that's the room that needed it the most.

    « Okay for a night. »

    This is the 'conference' hotel I remember from my childhood. It looks like it was once a motel, but at some point, they enclosed the interior courtyard. Inside this courtyard are the gym, a small arcade, and the pool. The hours are odd: 10a-10p. Given that breakfast ends at 10a, and people often checkout around 10a, this struck me as odd. The pool was nice. I was pretty disappointed at first -- the 'circle' inside the pool looks like a hot tub in the pictures, but it is just a super-shallow section. It's purpose isn't entirely clear because there is no rail to keep small kids from falling in the 3' section. But my elementary school aged kids enjoyed it. The gym overlooks the pool and has a mixture of relatively new equipment. The arcade is overpriced and not appropriate for pre-teen kids. Most of the games are pretty graphic/violent. They all cost ~$1 for about a minute of play. There is not even a 'token' pac-man or similar. The 'arm grab' is too difficult for kids, and the one time someone 'won' something, the game froze, sounding a siren, and refusing to relinquish the prize. The air hockey table has some plugged holes and does not work right. And, the pool table doesn't accept the same tokens as all the other machines. I'm glad my room wasn't near these machines which are 'on' until 10p. The hotel should remove this stuff. The room was fine -- clean and renovated relatively recently. The breakfast decent.

    We were here for two nights for work. The staff at the front desk were great. We found it unusual that we were given a map to get to our room, until we started walking. As another mentioned, it's a labyrinth of sorts. It's all set up around an atrium including a very nice pool and arcade area. Our room overlooked this. We actually were very amused at getting lost once or twice. The rooms are clean, the hotel is a bit dated where the rooms are. We ate at the bar one night, our burgers were very good. Breakfast in the morning, while typical, was far better than Holiday Inn Express breakfasts. Coffee was very good too. The hotel is a quick drive to Kingston, and we enjoyed a fun afternoon walking and exploring this neat town.

    Very nice hotel. Breakfast was decent with home fries, sausage and eggs. If you want quiet book your room away from the pool area where the arcade is and the air hockey table. Our room was next to a suite where you could hear through the adjoining door lots of singing, music and talking. Wifi was not great we had to go out to the lobby off and on.

    « A few things to keep in mind... »

    This hotel has an indoor pool (non-chlorine I'm told) with many rooms looking out or right on the pool level. If you need to keep an eye on kids having a pool level room is great. However, if your room looks out onto the pool area you will be disturbed by all the noise. So ask for a room a way from the hotel if this is a concern. Also, the place is dog friendly. I love dogs. But not when they bark constantly because the owners leave them alone and I can't sleep. The bed was very comfortable. Free wifi. Plenty of outlets for plugins. The decor is cave-man friendly; dark and masculine. This is also a conference center and wedding local. The free breakfast is a great deal. Scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, carbs, yogurt, juices, etc. There is also a full restaurant menu. The level of cleanliness is so-so. My room was skipped by housekeeping one day but no biggie. The day it was cleaned my hair left in the sink that morning was still there on my return. Dusting was apparently optional. The staff is very friendly and cordial. They were able to move my friends away from the pool noise at their request. The location is right off the Thruway. There is a pizza place right nearby. I would return here because of the convenience of location to New Paltz, Opus 40 and Woodstock. Check out the French restaurant in town.

    Lots of amenities - something for everyone! Pool, poolside shower, arcade, air hockey, billard table, nice lounge and a very good breakfast buffet. The beds were very comfortable, the towels were soft. My only complaint was the air conditioner which was too noisy and didn't seem to cool the room enough.

    « Excellent Stay »

    We were checked in promptly and the room was clean, modern and comfortable. The location is very convenient, right off the traffic circle that the Thruway exit leads to. Downtown Kingston is about 6-8 minutes away. There is a large, enclosed interior area between wings of the building with a pool and arcade for kids. The bulk of this area is used for business meetings, charitable organization presentations, etc. There were several events going on while we were there. The morning breakfast was sometimes busy with softball teams, Rotarians, etc. but the staff did a great job of keeping the area clean and the food freshly stocked. Food was above average for a motel breakfast -- good variety of foods and nice and clean. On one especially busy morning a whole extra coffee area was set up. Despite all of the activity in the common areas, in the wings where the rooms were located it was quiet and restful. The room entry cards worked perfectly every time. Nothing is more annoying than checking in after a long drive and getting cards that don't work or only work intermittently. That was never an issue here. Housekeeping was unintrusive and efficient. Overall, this hotel is a definite cut above the typical upstate New York motel. We enjoyed our 5 days there and will return when we visit Kingston in the future. .

    « Good Value and Convenient Location »

    As far as chain hotels go, this Best Western Plus is a good option. It is well situated--not far from the highway exit/entrance, minutes away from the Kingston Bridge and Kingston's major historic sites. Nearby (within walking distance) are Hannaford's Supermarket, a 24hr CVS, and 2 of Kingston's best "cheap eats"--Dietz's Diner (open 24 hours) and Diesing's Bakery. We stayed in a king bed room with a sofa. The room was pretty small, but was well-equipped and laid out in such a way as to take advantage of the compact space. The large flat-screen tv had a great picture and could be comfortably viewed from both the sofa and the bed. There was also a desk (opposite the sofa) and a small microwave and fridge (no freezer compartment) under the tv. The air conditioner worked well even on very hot days. The bathroom was a bit cramped, and the bath amenities were sparse. We had housekeeping only once during our 3-night stay (our choice), and it was merely satisfactory. Wi-fi service in the room was spotty and unreliable. One night we managed to watch Netflix on our laptop without much problem, but the next night I couldn't even call up basic websites (including Trip Advisor) without timing out. The free breakfast is OK--just as at all of the similar hotel chains -- eggs, make-your-own waffles, pasty oatmeal, a selection of processed breads and pastries, dry cereal, yogurt, etc. Not a lot of whole grain or low-fat options, but that's pretty typical of these places. Investigated the indoor pool area, but did not use the pool itself. The ambiance of the pool area is a bit strange and somewhat off-putting: an empty mall-like courtyard with a section of video game machines off to the side. The hotel has no outdoor public areas other than parking lots.

    « No "plus" at this hotel »

    Reservation was pre-paid to guarantee adjoining rooms. On arrival asked desk staff to confirm that they were and was told they didn't have all the rooms memorized. Found that rooms were not adjoining and had to return to desk to get that sorted out. Rooms were near pool and too smelly so we asked to be moved and were. Door to one room stuck and had to be pushed/pulled very hard to make it work. Asked housekeeping for razor and didn't receive, they often didn't replenish some toiletries. Hotel is like a maze.

    « It's not bad »

    The last time I stayed it was a Holiday inn. Since then, Best Western took over and made many upgrades, mostly in the bedrooms which are decent. They do not have extra cots as the upgrades included bigger beds, so a cot won't fit( at least that was the case in my room). Ask before you go as you cannot count on it as we did. The guy at the front Dest did offer extra bedding to help accommodate us( sleep on the floor). The air conditioning in the bedroom was great. The price included get your own breakfast which was good, the restaurant food wasn't bad, but not great either.The bar area is small and closes early. There is a pizza place a very short distance away... At the end of the hotel parking lot... The pizza was excellent!! Many of the workers were nice and helpful , however a couple at the front desk were just plain grumpy (over the simplest requests). The maid service was fine. The pool area and game-room are the same as in the past... Good for kids. For a small fee you can bring your dog (if they still have pet rooms available). The weirdest thing : The bathrooms do not have exhaust fans... Instead they have vents that connect to the bathroom in the room opposite your room. You can hear clear as day the people in the next bathroom (talking and making bodily sounds I will not describe here).... Somewhat strange and disgusting. The ice machines worked well and there were vending machines to buy snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. The room prices were a bit steep, but it was mid summer and they did give a AAA discount. I would stay again, but would also seek other options in the area.

    « Fine for a night's stay, but not worth the money paid. »

    The hotel was fine, but very overpriced. We paid over 200 dollars a night. There must have been some kind of event in the area. There was a decent indoor pool area and an arcade area that the kids liked. There was a strange atrium area with many tables covered in tablecloths, but not much else. The front desk upgraded us to a "walkout to pool" room which was kind of them to do, but it wasn't really poolside, just on the 1st floor (same floor as the pool). Breakfast was your typical "breakfast included" fare. Waffle maker, toast, stale bagels, eggs, bacon, yogurt and the like. It worked out fine for a night's stay, but I couldn't believe the price when my husband told me.

    Stayed one night on a way up to Albany. We had stayed here many years ago, as my grown-up son reminded us. Nice breakfast and lobby, has an indoor pool and video game area for children, which is what makes the place special enough to justify its higher price, but if that is not important to you, then perhaps look elsewhere. Rooms were adequate as were beds. Bathroom was on the small size. Take an outside room, not one that faces the indoor pool area unless you are wanting to look down on your children. Went to an pleasant, reasonably priced diner across the road "Olympus", for dinner.

    Stayed here for a wedding. Hotel has been renovated but you could tell they were just basically covering up the old stuff- I am not picky but noticed lots of small things like cracks in shower tiles, small peeling paint spots, carpet beginning to come apart, wonky toilet, etc. Breakfast was fine, staff was friendly, warm pool was nice to swim in with family. I felt it was overpriced for what type of accommodation they were offering- stayed at a brand new Best Western Plus right in NYC after leaving here and it was way nicer, offered more amenities, and actually cost significantly less.

    Wifey and I stayed here in Dec 2015. It is a sweet little hotel located in a small town. The parking is free and since we stayed here so close to Christmas, there was very cute little Christmas style decorated train that ran next to the hotel. If you are a fan of Christmas like I am, you will love to see it! The hotel was nicely decorated. The staff was friendly and informative. Our room was standard and good for the price we paid, nothing special. The bed was okay and I slept fine. The bathroom was clean and well lit. I do agree with other reviewers about the long dark hallway which is a bit creepy. The breakfast is free and it is your usual buffet style breakfast with eggs, potatoes and some other sad looking breakfast items. All in all I had an okay time staying at this hotel.

    Hotel has good and bad points: bed/pillow uncomfortable, A/C noisy and at end of cooling cycle would shut off with a squeal awakening us all night long; position of desk right next to the A/C made it freezing to work at the desk. Furniture should be rearranged so bench for suitcase is next to A/C and desk should be on other side of TV/ bureau unit. The breakfasts were very good. The staff was both friendly and helpful.

    « Will most likely not be back next year »

    When we first arrived we had a nice room with lots of natural light. It was on the second floor away from the pool/arcade area. We enjoyed the first night. However later, the ceiling began to leak. They looked at it but it couldn't be fixed in a short period of time. They moved us to a dark gloomy room near the pool area. We couldn't have natural light because if our light blocking (unfortunately not sound blocking) curtains were not closed people could see everything we did. That night we got back from dinner, and there were kids playing games, yelling, adults talking, people jumping in the pool. You could hear EVERYTHING. I mean seriously if you are going to have rooms right next to a pool and arcade games at least use soundproof walls.

    « An Enjoyable Stay »

    Convenient location, just off the Thruway traffic circle, extremely kind and helpful staff, immaculately clean public spaces and room, free breakfast includes variety of hot and cold foods. I had a microwave and refrigerator in my room. The warm saltwater pool felt great after a long day's drive, but coming back hot and sticky from sightseeing the next day, I would have rather had a cold, freshwater pool to jump into. The combo of cold pool and a hot tub would be more inviting, I think, and I said so in my comments to the motel. Also the pool does not open until 10am, so guests can't take a morning dip before starting their day. The motel is pet-friendly, which I may take advantage of in the future. Decor was drab throughout, although this motel had been renovated. It could use brighter colors and green plants. Pricing was a little high, I thought, for what was a fairly standard motel experience two hours north of New York City.

    « Almost perfect »

    We were in Kingston for a couple of days to look the area over. We were very pleased with the location of the Best Western Plus on Washington Avenue; its location is on the edge of Kingston, along Esopus Creek, and because we needed a pet friendly room, we were at the back of the hotel where there was plenty of room to run the dog. Our room was lovely, spacious, clean, comfortable. And here is a big surprise ? the Wi-Fi was absolutely excellent! I often find in a pet friendly room that we are way down at the end of the hall and the Wi-Fi is weak ? not the case here. Color me happy :-) Breakfast was excellent, and the people in charge of it were very efficient. There was a college baseball tournament going on, and at least two teams were staying at the Best Western, so there were plenty of people at breakfast both mornings; but those in charge kept the items well-stocked. So it wasn't a problem at all. In fact, it was kind of fun to see all those college kids :-) We wanted to learn a bit about Kingston, so when I checked in, I was given some information ? a map of Kingston and other printed materials. That was very helpful. And I must compliment the people at the front desk ? they went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant and friendly. The only negative at all was that the refrigerator in our room still held the food that was left by a previous guest. That was a little icky, but I just threw it out with the trash the next day. Not a big deal. But here's something funny ? the hotel sent me a request for a review. I did the review, and I mentioned the food. In response, from a manager at the hotel, I got a canned email thanking me for my review ? it did not mention my food issue at all, so I was pretty sure that the manager had not read my review. I tried to reply to the manager's canned response, and it bounced back to me. Wouldn't you think they would use a working email address for that? I would. But oh well. In any case, it was a good stay, a good time, and we will probably go back. It was a little pricey, but the Hudson Valley is a little pricey, and the BWP was a good place to stay.

    « A nice surprise! »

    We were in the area (sans kids) for a wedding down the road, which seemed to coincide with graduation weekend, so we were a little further away from our goal destination but this worked out great. The hotel was apparently recently renovated. We didn't see much of the rest of the hotel, which was fully booked for the weekend for a convention. The staff were incredibly friendly and we were able to check-in early to get ready for our friends wedding, which was a huge help. Our room had a queen size bed which was very comfy. The room was tastefully decorated, and we had a room at the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor, which was close enough to a separate entrance which was convenient for us. It was very quiet which I thought was great given that the hotel was fully booked! The bathroom was small but flowed well. My only issues were that while yes, the hotel has been renovated not that long ago, the bathroom was a little rushed. There was no fan, so it got very steamy very quickly. I am not 100% certain that they just didn't paint over the panel for it. And the counter was slightly loose, or was once fixed to the wall, but then separated, because you see on one side where it had dropped half an inch, and if you were feeling strong, you could wiggle it. There was also some stray hair here and there, which made me think it had been cleaned in a rush. I didn't bother raising it, because the rest of the room was okay, and we were grateful to get in before check-in at 3. I just ran the shower and had the water get them off the shower walls and tub floor. We had the option of free breakfast, but missed that the next morning, and instead slept in, so can't comment on that. All in all, it was a good stay!

    « An Ideal One-Night Stay »

    Strange as it may seem, we have but one complaint: the very noisy 5:50AM trash pickup; it was a rude awakening, at least in our room at the back of our hotel. Otherwise we can only say this was a great experience. Our kingside bed was the most comfortable in our memory; we both slept like babies (until the trash truck arrived!). The flat screen TV was enormous and the breakfast buffet was diverse and very good. The swimming pool was the perfect temperature, like tepid bath water; and squeaky clean. The complex which houses, in one space, the conference center, pool, video arcade, and fitness room, was interestingly situated between diagonally disposed wings of the hotel. It has a courtyard feel to it. Last but especially not least, if you are traveling with a dog, there is a long -ago-used, flat and elevated stretch of railroad parallel to the hotel, that is an ideal place for you and your canine best friend to stretch your legs!

I arrived with no reservation a little before 4 PM and was given the lowest rate (matched travel sites on internet) using my AAA card. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in in a motel. The TV was a big high def TV (my guess about 40" but I didn't measure) with good channel selection.

The corridors could use a little work, but nothing bad. Service was excellent. The room was clean and quiet and the bed and pillows very comfortable. Two things to note. First, the bathroom is a tight squeeze. Second, the room with a double bed only has one double bed, unlike most hotels. So if you were thinking of sharing a room with someone you don't want to sleep with, make sure you have two beds. I didn't eat the breakfast, but it looked like standard complimentary fare.

We received excellent check-in service, a very comfortable and spotless room, and a free breakfast which was MUCH better than the breakfasts we had had while staying at a resort in the Myrtle Beach area. You know those usual free breakfasts---the food looks like it just came out of cellophane wrappers? Here you had the choice of freshly made scrambled eggs, bacon, lots of bagels, muffins, etc---and you could even make your own waffles! What a nice way to wake up and face the last few hours of our drive home. I will definitely be going back to Best Western again.

After staying here last year, there was no doubt about staying again. My wife is disabled, so outside of a couple of trips out, we based ourselves at the hotel. My daughter and granddaughter enjoyed the pool and games. Friends and family joined us for dinner at the Capital Bistro where the food was delicious. See you next time!

    The hotel was an oasis during a difficult week for my family. We are grateful to all the visible and invisible folks who made our stay so restorative. (And I managed to get all my work done!) Worth the trip over the bridge if you need to be anywhere on the other side of the river as well.

    I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, prior to it becoming a Best Western and its renovation. The place looks great, very modern and clean. It was a very relaxing stay. Bed was very comfortable.

    « Very nice hotel, plenty of space. »

    I stayed at the Best Western for business. The hotel is very large with all kinds of amenities, from a pool, to a game room, and lots more. The staff was very pleasant, my room was very clean. Access was easy and plenty of parking. Location was local to downtown Kingston with plenty to see if you go out on the town.

    The staff was pleasant. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We are a rewards member and were given a room upgrade which was very nice. The hotel has a nice bar area and complimentary breakfast had a nice variety. We ate dinner at Keegan Ales, which was pretty close to the BW. Great food and beer with an awesome band on a Thursday night!

    I have stayed in hotels on this property for years as it has changed hands many times. This is my favorite incarnation. It is clean, the rooms are nice and the staff is pleasant. The hotel has a pool and gym which I did not use. It is in a good location across from the bus station and walking distance to the historic sights, My only complaint is that the beds are very high and hard for short or older people to get into. Other than than that recommend.

    This Best Western has been completely renovated. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We appreciated the hotel's location and enjoyed going downtown for entertainment. Belleayre was only 40 minutes away and the drive there was very enjoyable. Unbeatable rate for the amount of services and comfort. We will be back.

    « Sub Standard Experience »

    First time staying here so I do not know if all the rooms are the same. We stayed on the first floor in the 100 wing. Check in was very good even though they were busy. Buffet breakfast was very good. The room looked nice but the bed was so high that my wife who is 5' 2" basically had to jump onto the bed. The bathroom is very small and with the curved shower rod the door does not open fully. The toilet is low, I work in a hospital and it reminded me of a pediatric toilet. The bathroom exhaust duct was a single duct with a grille in our bathroom and one in the bathroom in the room next to ours. Anything said in the bathroom is easily heard in the bathroom next store. At night we shut our bathroom door to try and limit the transfer of noise. The other issue was the number of kids running around the hallways as late as 10:50 and as early as 07:00, what ever happened to parents being parents and watching their children? Not sure if we would stay here again.

    We had a GREAT stay at the Best Western in Kingston NY. The hotel is located just off the NYS Thruway. The hotel is in walking distance to a small outdoor mall. A 10 minute drive and you will find every store you could imagine, a multiplex movie theatre and tons of places to eat. The hotel is about 30 minutes from 4 major ski mountains. On the second day of our trip we had major rain and hail. The indoor pool was the best to keep the children occupied when we could not go skiing.

    « Great Stay in Kingston »

    This hotel has had many iterations. I remember it when it was a Holiday Inn - and it was old, tired and not a very friendly place. New ownership has made a big difference! My BF has a place in Ulster County but it's faaaar away from Kingston. I wanted to stay in town for my birthday and my usual go-to hotel chain was booked so we decided to try the Best Western. From our check-in (which they were able to do early) to check out (standard is 12 noon - which is great!) it was a lovely experience! Also, they allow dogs in some rooms and we brought my BF's. Sometimes you feel like you're in the "dog pound" yourself in a dog friendly property - but not here. The room was very nice - business hotel style. Clean, modern, comforter on the bed. I would say that if you don't want to hear the sound of children screaming - ask for a room far away from the pool - which is situated right in the middle of the property in a courtyard type arrangement. Also, we were by an exterior door and that door SLAMMED and SLAMMED and SLAMMED. I Do hope they think of a way to mitigate that - it was the only hiccup in a very nice stay.

    « hudson valley visit -- kingston »

    I stayed here to visit a festival at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds. I Stayed for 3 nights on a busy weekend. Staff was helpful and cleaning staff was exceptionally nice. The hotel itself was located near the Thruway which makes the hotel best if you are looking for a one night stay. The location near the roads busy intersection do not make the area walking friendly. There is a wonderful diner around the corner, about a one third of a mile.. but walking there is not advisable. The back of the property appears wooded but not a place to walk. There was an indoor pool which looked very nice. Normally, I would be using it but my schedule did not permit this visit. My room was recently remodelled. The entire room, furnishings, bathroom, TV, etc were all brand new. It was decorated more in the style of a large Marriott hotel -- more upscale than I was expecting. My room overlooked the pool. If you prefer windows with an outside view, you should request it. The price for the weekend was ok but it is Kingston, not Rhinebeck. I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it when staying in Kingston.

    « Best Hotel in the Area, Highly Recommended »

    High quality hotel and amenities. Hotel was recently renovated so everything is new. The attention to detail to make your stay high quality is obvious. The restaurant has excellent food and is open from 5pm-10pm. Room service is available if you don't want to go to the restaurant and your food will arrive hot. The breakfast buffet is good. There is a glass enclosed fitness area that looks out onto the indoor pool. There is also an arcade area for kids of all ages in the same area. The hotel is also pet friendly. There is a separate pet section so that you will have easy access to take your dog out. Also if you don't like the idea of pets you wont be bothered because it is a separate section with its' own hallway. There is a large conference center. This hotel is suitable for business or family travel and centrally located to all local activities.

    My company's holiday party took place at the recently renovated Best Western. This used to be a holiday inn. Entrance, bar and restaurant all very nice now. Laurie was a great bartender. Of course food at a party is important. They did not disappoint. Vegetables were fresh and cooked properly. Salmon and Prime Rib were well prepared. The salmon had a flavorful sauce and was not overcooked. The seasoning on the Prime Rib was awesome.

    My family and I have been staying at this hotel for many years through all the hotel changes they have made and were very impressed with the work and modern detail the hotel now has. It was nice to see how far along they've come. We were impressed with how clean the rooms were and through those changes how they continue having pet friendly rooms. We had an issue with other guests and smoking in their rooms (mind you the hotel is completely non-smoking) and the manager on duty was very accommodating and helped rectify the situation. We will definitely be back again.

    « Great location, clean rooms »

    We had an overnight stay while visiting for the Polar Express ride. The lobby had a cozy fireplace and bar. The restaurant was an open space next to the bar. The complimentary hot breakfast was very good. Our room's window faced the inside of the hotel/indoor pool, which I think is a little depressing (I prefer to view outside, have natural sunlight in the room).The rooms were clean and spacious. There was an indoor pool in an open space with walls around it. The "game room" was outdated but it amused my 4 year olds.

Would stay there again and am recommending to family members.

    I recently stayed at this Best Western due its proximity to some local holiday events near Kingston and I couldn't be happier with my decision. It's right off the NYS Thruway, is aesthetically pleasing, modern, has an indoor pool, arcade, complimentary breakfast (which was delicious), comfortable beds and a great price. My one critique of the hotel would have to be with the pool temperature---it was way too cold in a relatively cool room.

    « Not kid friendly, horrible staff. »

    While nicely renovated, nothing can diminish the horrible experience of the pool attendant. While visiting a family member from out of state that had stayed at this particular hotel for over thirty years, my wife along with our three children, her sister and one child were made to exit the pool because we were not staying at the hotel personally. This has never been an issue at any other hotel, EVER. The pool attendant was using his laptop and on the phone and a female accompanying him in whatever manner was in and out of the pool. Next thing you know he is asking us who is actually staying at the hotel and those who did not have a room were not allowed in the pool. Then he packs up his electronics, the girl leaves and minutes later the front desk manager comes to tell us three(3) non guests can be in the pool but not all six (6), inclusive of children and two mothers (two fathers and actual guest were not in the pool but sitting outside). Other than our group and the accompanying female to the pool attendant there was not one sole in the vicinity. A terrible experience to end three decades of memories at the Holiday Inn, especially for the young children ages, 1, 3, 3 and 9.

    « Rooms nicely appointed; old, dated building lay-out »

    This Best Western is very close to I-87, which put it just a bit further away from the places I usually go while in the area (Rhinebeck, Red Hook, Hudson Valley Mall, etc.); however, though it wasn't a plus for me it might be a big plus for someone with a different travel itinerary. The room itself had very attractive furnishings and decor, which seemed quite up to date. However, the setting for these is what seems to be an older, but overall well-maintained, building/complex. It has this rather bizarre triangular lay-out, which has as its center the "Garden Courtyard" /Pool Area/Fitness Center/etc which is under the same roof as the rest of the property. Our room was on the first floor, and I found it a bit creepy and unappealing that people could walk right by (or, theoretically, walk up to and stay at) our window. Also, though we didn't experience a problem with noise due to this lay-out while we were there, it would seem like the potential would exist. Service and staff friendliness went from excellent to "meh"...depended on who we encountered. It's not a bad place, but I just didn't like the physical lay-out and will choose a more modern property in the future.

    « Good facility for needs »

    Was in town for a class and was referred to this hotel. As other reviews have commented, the initial impression of the neighborhood was that it was rather questionable, but had no problems. Encountered a problem with the A/C unit in my room and the front desk attendant immediately put me in a different room. No problems there. Hotel is very clean and updated on the inside. Would have no problems going back again.

    « Check your bill!! »

    I booked this hotel for two people and a dog at a AAA/AARP rate of $134.10 (Plus $20 for dog). When plans changed, I changed the reservation to one person with no dog and was told rate would be the same. When I checked in (one person, no dog), desk clerk was going to charge me $161/nite and would not back down until I produced copy of email with $134.10 rate. The next morning I found a bill under my door -- with a $20 dog fee! Back to the desk I went to get the charge lowered again. This is a convenient dog-friendly hotel for Hudson River Valley sightseeing and has an OK light breakfast. Rooms are far from soundproof. Rehab has improved rooms. BUT check your bill!!

    « Very good, but for large groups? »

    If you are touring the Hudson River area of mansions, Rhinebeck, Culinary Institute of America, fall foliage, etc. this is a decent and economical choice to serve as your base of operations. The location is convenient to I-87, a "straight" shot up the road from Newark (EWR). Be sure to pay for the toll road option on your rental car, you will need it. The hotel is spread out in multiple wings and looks like a 30 year old Holiday Inn structurally. But it has been recently refurbished and has a clean, crisp and tasteful feeling about it. It features a large indoor swimming pool, a decent-sized exercise room, and a (teenage-friendly?) arcade. The included hot breakfast was adequate. Our room (#327) was on the back side. It was the most remote location from parking but also potentially the quietest. It looked very nice and was comfortable and clean. However, there are noise transmission issues. You need to hope that there are no large groups in residence while you are there. Noise from the hall and/or an adjacent room can easily impact the quality of your sleep, It is a potential problem, so take your ear plugs. You may need them.

    « Good hotel to use as a base to visit the area »

    We stayed two nights here while visiting the area. The hotel was renovated not too long ago, and was clean and comfortable. Our room was fairly large, although the bathroom was small. Breakfast was fairly minimal, but adequate, with eggs and sausage, pastries, cereal, and waffles. We are normally not wild about hotel food, but were tired after walking around, and ate at the hotel our first night, and the food was surprisingly good. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. You could walk to the Uptown historical area from the hotel, but need to cross a busy road, which had construction going on, and the crossing signals did not work. Best to drive to the historical district and find parking (not easy). We would stay there again if we visited Kingston again.

    « Great Hotel!! »

    I stayed in this hotel the weekend of 16th - 19th and it was a great experience. This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The king size bed was amazing, I wanted to take it home with me. The bathroom is spotless, with plenty of amenities for coffee/tea as well as towels. I stayed in my hotel room very comfortably for the 3 nights I was in Kingston and I have already booked my room for next year. Room service was amazing, I had a very tasty burger and fries. It was pricey, but well worth the splurge! If I had 2 suggestions, I would say offer bacon in the continental breakfast. The breakfast was amazing, loaded with plenty of foods to choose from, but some people prefer bacon over sausage. Secondly, during major local events, such as the New York Sheep and Wool Festival, some sort of hotel shuttle providing travel to and from the hotel/fairgrounds would be nice. It would be a convenient service that I believe people would utilize if they are visitors in the area and don't want to drive or do not have transportation other than a taxi to and from the event (and other events). Can't wait to stay here next year!

    « Quirky but Nice, Suites are Large with Two Bathrooms. »

    Stayed here for the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival. They just did a $6 million overhaul of the building. It is a triangular shaped building and it looks like there had been a center triangular courtyard open to the air which is now enclosed with a ceiling that is mostly solid with a few skylights. It is called the Garden Courtyard but there is nothing organic in it. It is concrete and paving stone with a swimming pool, an arcade area of games, a fitness center and a large seating area with tables where dinner or breakfast can be served in addition to the restaurant. It seemed the sitting area in the courtyard was for special events and the restaurant is open to the public and people staying at the hotel. We had a suite which was very comfortable. It looks like they took two former single rooms and turned them into a suite with a bedroom and a living room with a door in between. One great feature of this is they left the full bathroom in the living room part of the suite. This meant my wife could have one bathroom and I could have the other in the morning. Great for getting out in a hurry. They bathrooms are large and have very generous counter top space. Most hotels I have stayed in usually give you inadequate counter top space in the bathroom. Plus the living room part of the suite has a refrigerator and microwave. It addition there is ample lighting and the lamp bases on the tables have multiple outlets making it very easy to plug in laptops and charges for cell phones. The rooms the suites are in are longer than most hotel rooms which means there is plenty of room on either side of the king sized bed. Usually I find suites to be pretty crowded to the left and right of the bed but not here. Very nice feature. They fill in the extra space with comfortable upholstered chairs. The suites open onto the courtyard and sometimes it can be a little noisy if there are events going on in the courtyard although it never got unbearable. There is only one suite that does not face the courtyard but faces the outside of the building towards the stream. Also the rooms facing the courtyard do not have any outdoor sunlight window. They face the courtyard but the courtyard does not have much natural light. But the windows facing the courtyard have privacy blinds that work fine. One advantage is if you want to sleep late the sunlight won't wake you up. The doors of the room open right onto a sidewalk so people do walk just outside your doors frequently. There is one door into the courtyard from the bedroom and one from the living room. Plus there are two doors on the other side of the rooms into a hallway. 4 doors in the suite altogether. The restaurant is a nice solid restaurant. Large menu with a bar and so convenient to have right in the hotel. Opens at 5. There is a full bar there also and this is where the free breakfast is also served. It's not a fine dining restaurant or a special event restaurant but perfectly fine as a hotel restaurant. The location is very convenient and the suites are great. The quirky things are the non garden Garden Courtyard and the fact the many of the rooms are completely interior with no windows facing the outdoor sunlight. Despite the quirks I would stay here again. The staff was very accommodating. At one point my wife needed cough drops and a large Phillip's head screwdriver for a piece of equipment she had brought with her. We went up to the desk and they had both. Very friendly at the desk.

    « Cobwebs & Spiders! »

    I had to do business in the area and found most of the hotels were sold out so I booked the Best Western Plus. The website showed photos that made the place look very nice. The rates were very over priced, about more than double of what a similar hotel would charge. The room was not very clean and the ceiling was full of cobwebs! I saw a few large spiders in the ceiling and walls. The bathroom was dirty looking with old tile and dirty grout. There was hair from pervious guests in the tub and floor. The TV was an HDTV flat screen but did not have an HDTV picture. The A/C heater was noisy. The free WiFi was so slow it wasn't useable beyond checking emails. This hotel needs to clean up and adjust their rates to a appropriate cost. They offered free breakfast but the room was over crowded and I was not able to take advantage of it.

    We stayed at this hotel for two nights in September as we further explored the beautiful Hudson Valley area. The location was fine for us, right next to a great little Italian restaurant with huge portions that we highly recommend. The rates were a little high at the hotel. However, the breakfast they provide was very nice and had many choices including eggs, waffles, muffins, bagels, cereal, yogurt and fruit. The room was fine, bed so-so in comfort. We had to get double queens since that was all that was available. Big girl soccer? weekend there. One bed was so close to the wall without a nightstand next to my side. Only complaint and not a big one. The coffee maker was in the bathroom instead of on the desk which was strange. Free wifi which intermittently cut out since too many people were using it. Never got a chance to try pool. It was locked when we went. However, we were comfortable and we would consider staying there again.

    This is the third time we have stayed here in the last 18 months and we weren't disappointed. We enjoy bringing our pet Shih Tzu with us and the room was very clean. The only minor issue we had was the television, which for some reason had a pretty bad reception. We called the front desk about the issue and they sent an employee to look at it, but he told us the poor reception was prevalent throughout the entire hotel. We never had an issue in our other two stays. But again, the room was clean and the free breakfasts were great.

Dylan at the front desk was really great and answered all our questions, ie: the hotel has do it yourself laundry, free newspapers, and offers free soap, shower caps, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion,, etc... We would definitely go back. The one thing that confused us, but now we understand is- the fan in the bathroom doesn't sound like it is on, but actually it is always running. There is a hair dryer in the closet of the room in a black bag- and if you want to dry off the mirror - that's what I used.
