Christmas Trip

Our stay was wonderful and comfortable! I grew up in Kingston ny and was worried about starting at a hotel in my home area. This hotel is in the process of being renovated but we were not inconvenienced by this.

Downgrade result of renovation-in-progress

The location was great for the event we were attending. Right off the NY thruway exit. The hotel was recently purchased and undergoing a major renovation, which is a good thing! However, that was not mentioned in the hotel info prior to booking. Everything is old and very worn out and the smoke smell is impossible to remove with just cleaning. It is also pet-friendly. I love pets, but not when it's a large barking dog in the room next to me! Justifying the cost of this hotel is very difficult. Perhaps it will be a 3 star after remodel, but definitely only a 2 in its current state.

Great Hotel

This hotel was great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a NON-SMOKING facility. I did not know that when booking. There are renovations going on but it wasn't a problem. The complimentary breakfast was very nice, with the exception of the bagels (I'm from Long Island so maybe the bagels are fine). The place was very clean. Watch the outlets though. I stayed with a master electrician and he noticed right away that some of the outlets aren't safe. The pool looked clean but was closed by the time we checked in (10 pm). The beds were comfortable and the shower was nice. No problems with hot water. The only reason I won't stay here again is ONLY because of the NO SMOKING.

Disappointing stay

This hotel was promoted as 3-stars but deserved two at best. It was undergoing a major remodel and very torn up from the lobby and adjacent hallways to the dining area and common spaces. The room was very ordinary and outdated. The flowers in the pots outside had died 5 months ago and never been cleaned up. This needs some serious work to get 3-stars!

Kingston Night

The building was shabby including hallways, room, furnishings, bedding, and bathroom, et al. The staff at checkin was fine, but the staff at checkout was very anxious because he had more than one person to contend with. The bathroom was unclean including shower walls, vanity, and toilet. I closed my eyes in the shower, and while brushing my teeth. The two beds were made up well, but again shabbily. Overall, my experience was poor.

very expensive hotel with very little to offer

at 200 dollars a night, one might expect something quite a bit better than this hotel. though close to the wedding we were attending, it had nothing else going for it. paper thin walls, dirty carpets and construction added to our overall dismay over our choice.

A surprise

We drove up to the hotel and my heart just sank. It was in the middle of extensive remodeling which might be great for future guests but not me. Instead, we found everything to really be in place. The atrium courtyard was safe and the pool provided a lot of fun for the grandchildren. It was very hot this past weekend so we were happy to have some space to do things inside with them as they are very young. The staff was very helpful and we found the location to be good. It is quiet but near enough to everything and literally a skip away from the Thruway. It was not luxurious but it had everything a family needs.

A great Italian restaurant in town. We also ate at a Ruby Tuesdays which was typical of its type but not bad.

A nice experience for the money

As we drove up my heart sank. The motel is having extenisve remodeling so I was afraid what might be great for future sustomers was not going to be for us. I was mistaken. It was quite nice inside (there were some inconveniences but they did not effect our comfort) and provided lots of safe room for our very young grandchildren.
