    « 5 stars hotel »

    We choose this hotel to be confortable and be able to dine at there restaurant. Since it was my friend birthday, we wanted to be very confortable and have a nice meal. the confort of the bed was exceptionnal! We liked our experience at the lounge bar and even had diner there. the food was good for the price paid. I even took the left over to eat at lunch the next day! It was still good. I would recommend this hotel whithout hesitation.

    « 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.

    « Nephews wedding »

    The hotel was great. Our room was clean and the complimentary breakfast was very good. This was a destination wedding, with several families visiting and no one had complained. We would definitely stay there when visiting again. It was within walking distance of several restaurants.

    « Great for the area, okay overall »

    The hotel is laid out very funky. Inside rooms can face arcade area in atrium and can be loud. Not great and clean and reasonable for the area. The general area is either high priced fancy places or scary no thrills. This is inbetween.

    « great business »

    I was traveling and needed a place to stay for the night as I needed y brakes repaired in the morning. I don't use credit cards so several other hotels refused me even though i was able to pay cash +a deposit. Best Western happily obliged and the place is great. Free wi-fi and breakfast. Friendly staff and a nice room . Thanks BW

    « 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.

    « Comfortable stay »

    Location of hotel was very convenient and easy to find. Service of staff, house keeping and manager was extremely customer friendly. Rooms were neat and clean. Breakfast was reasonably good but there is little scope of improvement. Overall experience was satisfactory.

    « Fine place to stay. »

    Stayed here for an event at Dutchess County Fairgrounds. It has been recently renovated and is a nice property. Clean well appointed rooms. Nice bar with limited menu. Only complaint was breakfast did not open until 7 on weekends, not even coffee! There are coffee makers in the rooms, but nothing in the lobby. The hotel was full and everyone arrived to eat at 7. Not pretty.

    « 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.

    « Our Weekend in Kingston »

    This was our 3rd stay at this hotel. There is a reason for that. It is clean, neat and well managed. The people that stayed in our non smoking room probably smoked, when we called the front desk, the had someone up in our room to freshen it within 3 minutes. the atmosphere is wonderful as we had a room with a view of the creek. Breakfast was good also. Don't hesitate to stay at this conveniently located hotel in Kingston....

    « Another pleasant stay »

    This particular Best Western is my home away from home when I visit the small city where I lived for many years. Clean, comfortable, pleasant staff, good breakfast with selections of hot and cold foods, Heated, salt-water pool to get the kinks out. Pet-friendly. I'd suggest a room on the creek side rather than the pool side for quiet and privacy. Just off NYS Thruway--very convenient. Price is good for being this close to NY City. Pizza restaurant next door is very highly rated, and I concur.

    « Nice hotel, close to town center »

    We were very surprised by the lovely town of Kingston, NY. We had planned to tour the Vanderbilt Museum and FDR home and presidential library, which is only about 30 minutes away in Hyde Park. Kingston has several very good restaurants which made our choice of staying the Best Western very convenient. It is close to town center and the interstate. We would definitely stay at the Best Western Plus again.

    « Unusual property »

    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.

    « Loud Wedding Hotel »

    Be forewarned the walls in the rooms are paper thin and you can hear everything from surrounding rooms. Also, there are limited pool hours. The breakfast, while convenient, is not very healthy or tasty and can be packed with hangry people. Otherwise, the staff was very accommodating and friendly, and location of the hotel within walking distance to some great local restaurants and bars.

    « Great stop for Woodstock and Bethel Woods »

    The property is essentially a conference centre and its design is functional. However, this means that travellers can expect top quality service with respect to room comfort, wifi connectivity, fitness room/pool, restaurant, breakfast, and service. In all a very nice place to stay and I would pick as first choice if returning to that locatiom.

    « How to get lost in the Best Western labrynth »

    The BEST WESTERN Kingston is an excellent place to stay the night. It is so big, however, that initially it is possible to get lost trying to go from the computer room to the bedroom suites. All in all, a good experience.

    « Nice place - very helpful staff »

    This location was very nice. The rooms were spacious and clean. I cannot say enough good about the staff. They offered suggestions for dinner, as well ad provided a history of the town. Would recommend this for business or pleasure.

    « Very pleasant Hotel and Staff »

    Stayed one night on our way to a motor cycle event. Harley Davidson recommends BW. They have a bike wash area if interested. Since we are on bikes we always look for a Hotel with a restaurant and bar. Very nice stay

    « Great spot to launch your Kingston/Hudson Valley exploration »

    The kids and I really enjoy this place. Super easy convenient location off the thruway. Great spot to launch your Kingston/Hudson Valley exploration. We made last minute reservations for both times we've stayed there. It's spacious, clean and elegant. We will definitely be back.

    « Enjoyable »

    I really don't have one complaint about this hotel. From the moment we walked in, the staff went above and beyond to help. The room was comfortable and well appointed. Full hot breakfast and nice amenities. Truly, the only thing that I can knit pick was that the bathroom was quite small ( I only noticed because we have a disabled person in our party). I would definitely stay here again.

    « Nice But Beware »

    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. I think 249 per night with a 2 night min is a bit much.

    « Dinner and cocktail gathering for large group »

    Recently renovated Best Western Plus of Kingston, hosted our event in capable style with dancing, DJ reunion sounds of the 70' through today in an intimate setting of one of several designer set conference/ballrooms. Lounge also featured a nice gas flame stack stone fireplace. Appetizers and tid bits preceded a fresh hot buffet featuring boneless chicken parmigiana, stuffed fillet of sole, hand carved at the station prime rib. Various vegetable, potatoes, pasta & rice sides were delicious. Banquet and groups manager Diane Mancuso Ferhring is to be complimented on an excellent presentation of centerpieces and providing customized gift favors. One mile off the exit 19 Thruway Circle/ Washington Avenue exchange

    « comfort »

    for the price, comfort of bed could of been better nothing special about the hotel dining service staff, very friendly hard to figure out how to get around to your room the food was good, but nothing special.

    « 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.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    Stayed here for a wedding this past weekend. Room was very nice and staff was very friendly. It is located right off the throughway. One of the nicer hotels in this area. They do offer free breakfast the starts at 7:00a.m.

    « Great stay, great location! »

    Great stay! Traveling alone on business. Safe, clean updated accommodations super close to a lot of restaurants and shopping, and historical sites! Easy parking, great free breakfast, wifi, and nice business center. Would stay here again! Another great stay at a best western!

    « Clean and Convenient »

    Just stayed overnight because we were going to the Dutchess County Fair. Didn't have any kids with me but the indoor game and pool area looked like a great place for families. Breakfast was good and included in price. Hotel recently refurbished, was very nice.

    « Great place and we could bring our little dog. »

    Exceptional cleaning staff. They really made our stay a nice one. This is a very friendly and very clean place to stay! We were able to travel with our little dog and stayed 4 nights in a non smoking room.The breakfast was great They had a nice variety and the tables were always cleaned after every guest. If I was going to travel anywhere nearby I would stay here!

    « Good place to stay in Kingston »

    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.

    « Very Convenient Place to Stay! »

    This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel. We're usually accompanied by our pet shih-tzu, so this pet-friendly hotel right off the Thruway is perfect for us. The rooms are always clean, the staff always friendly, and the free breakfast buffets are nice.

    « 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.

    « Good deal »

    This hotel is close to everything, has a decent (slightly overpriced) restaurant, nice indoor pool, and totally adequate breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was clean, and the restaurant was not crowded. There's even a small arcade for entertainment! Just make sure that you bring some cash because the ATM was not working and the vending machines are cash only!

    « Great Place to stay »

    My first time here at this hotel. It was immaculate, the staff was efficient and courteous. The room was spotless, had no odor and the beds were perfect. The area where the breakfast was served was a little too warm, perhaps the blowers for the A/C weren't working? We chose to sit at the elevated table on the bar stools and it was more tolerable.

    « Remodeled »

    Stayed here as part of a group. Checking was efficient. The rooms were large ,clean and recently remodeled. Larger than typical TV and comfortable mattresses! The food was very good! Pleasant 2 night stay.

    « Pricey accommodations »

    I booked a standard two bedroom room for a function held at the best western for one of the department offices, promotions .I asked for a group rate being I was sure some other employers would be booking.$200.00,a night,well I payed it but thought good god I only live twenty minutes away but it would be late and wanted to have a glass of wine.l think they took advantage, over charged.

    « 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.

    « Nice hotel, good breakfast, »

    We stayed at this hotel for a night while traveling. The hotel was very clean and nice, the room we had (single queen) was small, but adequate. Breakfast had a good selection of the usual foods, including cooked oatmeal. The service was excellent. The only issue is that the hotel is in a very busy area and early in the morning we had lots of noise from the parking lot.

    « Not pleased with the sleeping area we were given »

    The hotel is very clean, I was not impressed to be placed at the pet rooms area when we don't have pets and the rooms either side of us had barking dogs. They finally settled by 11:30 pm but when you pay $192.00 for a nights sleep then thats what you expect to recieve. the breakfast area was very need and well taken care of. Upon check out the front desk didn't seem to concerned that we had a interuped nights sleep. If this is what Plus has to offer I'm staying with our Best Western in Watertown, New York

    « In town for wedding »

    We were in Kingston for a wedding this weekend. The best western was centrally located, clean, and had a fun pool area. The only downside was someone pulling the fire alarm in the middle of the night, but it's hard to blame the hotel for that. If we are in the area again, we would def go back!

    « Exceptional Service - beyond the call of duty »

    I stayed at the Best Western Plus for a week in June whilst attending training nearby. This hotel far exceeded my expectations in every way. The staff are unbelievably helpful - I ordered books to be delivered there - they were ready and waiting for me, I wanted to change rooms to a different location - no trouble at all - I was moved instantly. The room was perfect and the bathroom facilities too. It has recently been renovated and is in good nick. Accommodation included breakfast was was more than adequate. I want to thank all the staff at the front desk as well as the Manager - who were so accommodating, helpful and friendly.

    « Reasonable hotel, especially good for older children »

    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.

    « Friendly, comfortable hotel »

    The employees at this hotel were very pleasant and helpful. It did not matter what their position was, there was not a single person that we ran into that seemed as if they did not want to be at work. The breakfast there was one of the best hotel breakfasts that we had in a long time.

    « Nice Hotel and Good Food »

    I had lunch there and we had a conference in one of their rooms, but I did not spend the night. The lunch was really good (had a hot turkey sandwich). The place is really nice and clean though, and the staff was friendly. It seemed like a nice place to stay if we ever needed to

    « Recommended »

    In Town for graduation, nice general appearance of facility, clean rooms, nothing special, pleasant employees, better then average Breakfast buffet, Pricing a bit much but i would stay there again if in the area

    « Fine- nothing special »

    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.

    « would recommend »

    This hotel was recently renovated and is in good condition. has a great work out area, pool and child area. The hot breakfast is included and just perfect! If you can get a room in the courtyard I think that would be preferable. Otherwise It was a bit of walk to the room.

    « Very pleased and satisfied »

    Our room was very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Requested additional pillows and towels and they arrived to us promptly. Used the laundry facilities without any problems. Great staff. Good variety of breakfast items. Very pleased with our stay. Will stay again!

    « Smelly room with flying insect »

    Long journey to arrive at a smelly non smoking room with flying insects while paying over $200 for the night. Hotel is full so no option to change rooms. When I last stayed here, it was under construction so I made allowances. But this is allegedly a better hotel in Kingston, sadly not the case.

    « Okay time staying at this hotel »

    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.

    « Clean, Quiet and Comfortable »

    Stayed here for the Country Living Fair. Rates were quite high during this time because of the fair. The hotel is recently remodeled and very clean. Beds are very comfortable and the hotel is quiet. The hallways are a bit dark and on the end we were staying the hallways were super hot. The room was cooled though. Nice shower and good water pressure. Wish there was an elevator on the other side of the hotel. Would stay here again.

    « weekend in Hudson Valley »

    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. Seemed pretty expensive for the value received.

    « effective lodging »

    The facilities are a bit tired, but clean. The on site food is not all that good, but there are lots of local places to eat instead. Breakfast is included, but can get crowded. As long as you have other plans in the area, this is a fine place to lay your head down at night.

    « good nights sleep »

    This hotel was quiet and clean enough, although a little pricey for the area. Excellent mattress, decor could use a little updating. make sure you ask for a room with a window to the outside, there are a few rooms with windows that look out on an event space. Very close to shopping and restaurants. convenient to the highway.

    « 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.

    « Stayed here while traveling to Vermont »

    Clean rooms, quiet, courteous and helpful staff. Great breakfast buffet (free). Was very pleased with the room and overnight stay while traveling. Close to I-87 exit. Close to shopping. Pleasant stay.

    « A great place to stay in the Mid Hudson Valley »

    Clean, quiet and comfortable. In Kingston NY you can't ask for or expect anything better!! Pricing was on the high side due to graduation at Bard College, even so less than $250.00 including all taxes was worth it given the fact it was only a 15 minute drive to Bard

    « 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!

    « Met all Criteria »

    Stayed for 3 nights in a king bed room while visiting family. This Best Western met all our needs, plus more...good location in Kingston, reasonably priced (booked early with 3-night stay rate), clean facilities, very comfy bed, great breakfast which was kept well-stocked and attended. We requested a quiet room on the 2nd floor which the pleasant desk clerk provided. Nice view of the river which ran behind the property. There is an elevator. The room was decent sized and included a frig., microwave, newer flat-screen tv and sofa with a large ottoman. As others have stated, this hotel was recently remodeled. We found the furnishings and decor to be clean, comfortable and very eye-appealing. Well done!! Worth noting, the bathroom had a shower only, no tub. We actually preferred it, but others might not. Would definitely stay here again.

    « 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!

    « Nice, confortable, clean accommodations. »

    Visiting family in Kingston. Needed a place to stay for two nights that was centrally located. Best Western was a good choice. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a good value. I had no problem booking a room. The facility had a very nice, large swimming pool and a moderate exercise room , neither of which I had time to use unfortunately.

    « Quiet in Kingston »

    Although this property is large, I found it to be quite comfortable and fairly quiet. The location affords quick access to areas and attractions in Kingston. Breakfast is included and offered both warm and cold food choices. It is hard to find vegan food offerings here, though.

    « A Gem in Kingston »

    Great location, great room. Bed was very comfortable. Staff was attentive and included breakfast was tasty, well presented, and adequate. While we didn't use the in-hotel restaurant, other members of our group said its food and service were great.

    « Very happy with my stay there »

    I had a class there the next day after my night's stay and originally planned on staying in a cheaper motel down the street the night before, but didn't due to TV problems. 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. Breakfast featured a hot meal with good variety. If I ever have to stay in Kingston again, I would definitely return to this motel.

    « Lovely location clean and great value »

    Stayed in a 2 double bed room with 2 of my friends for a 3 night stay for a wedding. Lovely sized room. Really clean. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was especially lovely and included in the price. Can't fault it

    « Best Western Plus Kingston NY »

    Clean, quiet place to stay. Breakfast regular options. Think charging for pets when LaQuinta and Country Inn and Suites don't is unfair. They don't charge for children who tend to be nosier and messier.

    Very friendly and accommodating staff. Very good free breakfast. Clean rooms, and pet friendly. Would recommend, and will return. My only complaint is that the bed was too high, which did present a problem for me.

    « Good value »

    This hotel was an updated version of an older hotel. The updates were nice, but not up to what I consider the standard of Best Western Plus. The hotel was clean and comfortable, with an attentive staff.

    « Great Stay »

    Best Western recently took over this hotel and renovated it. They did a very nice job, as the first floor lobby area and the rooms are bright and fresh. 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. The coffee was excellent. There's a restaurant / bar, but I did not go there. Overall, this is now the best hotel in Kingston and at their prices, they are a great value too. The location is also great.

    « Great everything »

    We checked in with much confusion(our fault) but were quickly taken care of by a very accommodating staff. Our rooms were great, beds were very comfy and breakfast was ample. We chose BWP, because of previous travel and this one was located conveniently to our activities. The hotel and the staff were very child friendly and did everything to make us feel welcome. We will definitely stay there again.

    « Great Staff/Rooms, Amenities and Food Could Be Better »

    Staff is extremely professional, courteous and helpful. However, I wish I'd requested an outdoor-facing room, as opposed to the room we ended up in, which faced the interior (indoor) courtyard, where people have events, swim in the pool, and play video games. I also prefer to see daylight and natural setting when I look out the window. Additionally, I really wish that Vegan/Gluten-Free options were offered, both as part of the complementary breakfast AND as part of the regular lunch/dinner/room-service menus!!!!

    « Great experience »

    The room was fabulous from the decor to the comfort of the bed. I had the bed sleep ever away from home. The complimentary breakfast included eggs, sausages, bagels, big fluffy bagels you make yourself and all the usual juices, buns, cereals, fruits etc. I was very satisfied and full. I loved that all the rooms have a frig and microwave. A big thumbs up for this hotel.

    « Perfect! »

    Staff was very nice, rooms are clean, the pool area was very clean, arcade area was awesome for kids and adults and breakfast was the best. I will be returning with my family again. Im definitely will recomend this hotel to my friends.

    « Hotel Accommodations »

    The Best Western Plus Kingston Hotel and Conference Center was better than the ratings that I saw on the sites I checked before I booked the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise. The included breakfast was tasty, plentiful and offered lots of choices.

    « Excellent Value »

    The comfort & cleanliness of the room was pleasantly surprising since we thought the price was on the lower side. FREE breakfast was actually very good. Close to the highway but you did not feel like you were in an industrial area.

    « Great place to stay for pleasure or business »

    Best Western in Kingston, NY, is centrally located within Ulster County. The rooms are comfortable. There are rooms along the Esopus Creek, where visitors may glimpse all kinds of wildlife, from ducks and geese and song birds, to hawks and eagles, and deer and bunnies. The staff is exemplary. Breakfast is great form most people; I suggest adding gluten free options.

    We stayed here for one night while visiting family in the area. We would highly recommend staying here. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. All of the staff was great as well. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both were fabulous.

    « Exceeded my Expectations »

    After a 14 hour drive we desperately needed to find a decent place to stay for the night. We ended up doing much better than just "settling" when we stayed at this Best Western. 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.

    « Concert »

    We stayed here as we were attending a concert nearby. The staff helped us with cab service. The bed was incredibly comfortable, slept like a baby! We really didn't have time to eat at the restaurant as we were on a tight schedule. We checked in and out in less than two minutes. Definitely would return!

    « Great stay..... »

    I could label this as a "Ditto" from last year's review. My wife and I made the trip up north to visit family and friends.We previously lived around here, so I knew the area. 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!

    « Kingston BWP Plus! »

    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.

    « Big Change »

    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!

    « Good place to stay in Kingston »

    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.

    « Great quality price »

    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.

    « Presidnets week vacation »

    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.

    « Business conference »

    I was here for one night for a business conference. Check in was quick and easy and my request for a first floor room was accommodated easily. The restaurant was good and so was the breakfast. Definitely recommend this hotel as it has been redecorated.

    « Good place to star »

    We were pleased with the style, service and amenities available. Small microwave and fridge in the room was nice. The décor was modern. The layout of the hotel is efficient. Indoor pool for families. A lot of families stay here. We ate at the restaurant for dinner. It was nice. The morning complimentary breakfast was good. Staff was helpful and attentive. Check in & out was organized and efficient. We would stay here again. You just have to be aware that they allow dogs in the hotel.

    « Only game in town »

    Nice hotel, and when you take the options in the area into consideration it is very nice. Indoor pool, hot tub, and the free breakfast is solid. The restaurant/bar makes a nice drink as well. Very comfortable bed and friendly staff. The closest hotel over 3 stars that I was able to find to Hunter Mountain.

    « Great Value, Nice Hotel »

    Hands down the nicest Best Western I have stayed. Would definitely consider staying there again. Our family of four very much enjoyed the overnight at the hotel for our MLK ski weekend. The only suggestion I would make is for the restaurant to have non-dairy milk.

    « blinking light »

    the room had a blinking blue light (smoke detector?) that went off every 2 minutes that was like sleeping with a strobe light woke us up all night.. the coffee pot wasn't very clean and was located in the bathroom..

    « 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.

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.

    « Weekend Away with Family »

    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.


    I definitely RECOMMEND this facility for on the road trip. It is a full service hotel, convenient and clean with a professional, friendly staff. I love the pool and exercise area. It was a lovely safe place to stay over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with suggestions re area highlights and restaurant directions. Would stay there again and am recommending to family members.

    « Great value, great location »

    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.

    « Remodeled »

    I've stayed here once before a few years ago and wow, what a nice remodel! I stayed in a king suite and it was wonderful. Great breakfast also. The girl who checked us in was pleasant. I'll def be returning as there is also plenty to due in the area!

    « 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!

    « Great value »

    This hotel has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay! Our room was immaculate; the bathroom was small - TINY - but sparkling clean with lots of supplies! The business center is one of the few I've found that was easy to access, everything worked and always available. The machines in the fitness center actually worked!

    « 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.

    « Comfortable, modern, friendly service »

    The lobby and rooms are modern, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms look new. I had a room in the back and it was very quiet. There was no tub in my bathroom, but the shower was really good. Coffee at breakfast was good...very important to me.

    « 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.

    The room was very clean and the food was good. The hotel staff were pleasant and willing to assist the guests. We did not use the pool, but it also was clean. My room was near the games room but I never heard noise.

    « Just What We Needed »

    Traveling south with my 86 year old mother. We were looking for a place to really relax after 6 days of packing her home, saying good-byes and watching the moving van drive away. This hotel was the place! Clean hotel, very comfortable beds, easily accessible with breakfast included we were able to rest up before the next leg of the journey. Many thanks to the staff. The young man who checked us made sure we had a first floor room just a short walk to the parking lot. In the morning Jim repaired my mother's eyeglasses (she had stepped on them).

    « Best stay ever »

    Everything was great will go back . Was there for work breakfast was so so good . People should tip the staff out that sets up and breaks down breakfast . The rooms where nice and clean and the staff is amazing. U should hit it up and chic's sports bar down the road is a great place to eat and drink . John the bartender was great and made us feel like at home ??????

    « Met our Needs »

    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.

    « Very Nice Experience! »

    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.

    « Home Away From Home »

    We love to stay here at Best Western in Kingston, NY. It's a great place to relax & unwind. The pool is nice & warm, the restaurant is great & the (included) breakfast is just right! The hotel is right in the middle of lots of interesting things & places to see.

    « Great hotel and they take pets too »

    I love this hotel. The best part of it is that they have a very nice size pool and it is warm. I love that it is not freezing cold. The rooms have been updated and the air conditioning works great now!

    « Clean and convenient with great staff! »

    Really a wonderful stay. The lounge was great, and the breakfast was average but hey, it's free! Free Wifi, free parking and clean and recently renovated inside. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable. Really a wonderful staff, I can't say enough good about them. 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.

    « Wonderful Experience! »

    I was going to a symposium and was given the name of the hotel. The staff was professional yet very friendly making me feel they cared about me. The room was ultra comfortable. As a smoker I was a bit concerned since it is non-smoking but they had areas strategical located that did not make it difficult to have a smoke.

    « Great place to stay- excellent staff »

    All of the staff were very helpful, friendly, patient and kind. The hotel has just been renovated- so very nice decor, clean and the beds are very comfortable. Their is a very large indoor courtyard with pool and arcade fun for the family. The price of the room was very affordable. Will stay again when I visit the area. Great location if attending Omega Events

    « Comfy stay and delicious and plentiful complimentary breakfast »

    We had a comfortable stay. This was our first stay at a BW Plus. We will look for them again! The location is very convenient and highway is only a short distance to the hotel. Staff was very friendly. Keep up the good work! Thank you!

    « Best Western Kingston NY »

    Big business and conference hotel. Very utilitarian. Bed was particularly comfortable and the shower worked and was easy to figure out. Did not have a 2 night minimum. Ease of access to the Thruway and downtown.

    « Good experience »

    After spending a nice day in Kingston, we decided to stay in the area. As it happened, we obtained the last room available in this Best Western for this particular Saturday night. The hotel is large, but easy to navigate. It has a nice indoor courtyard. We were happy that the hotel had a good restaurant on site. The food and service were excellent. We enjoyed a drink at the bar. Breakfast in the morning was well presented and good. It was a great experience and I would recommend this hotel.
