Didn't feel like a hotel room at all. Actually its a bed and breakfast. Owners very nice and always willing to accomodate. Room was spectacular and had its own very nice bathroom. In the middle of town and convenient. Nice front porch to relax on with a cup of coffee. A little cluttered in lobby but I guess that also makes it homey.
renovations were very nice and the hotel was so quiet
Location to downtown and through way Pool/rec area not usable because of remodeling. The fumes from the remodel were choking and not ventilated at all. When we informed the manager of this, she was ambivalent about the issue.
Nice and quiet. Bed was comfortable great to come back and relax after a long day at the horseshow
The staff at the front desk was exceptionally rude when we checked in. The rooms are dated and unclean - our shower had black mold on the ceiling. While the campiness of the "holidome" (an inside pool and arcade located in the middle of the hotel that looks like it dates back to the fifties) was amusing, it did not make for the best view outside of our hotel window. Many of the rooms, like ours, had a view of the inside "dome"/courtyard and absolutely no natural light. The hotel was under renovation, which meant much of it was unusable and the parking lot had a pile of old toilets and dressers (like the furnishings still in our room) in the corner. Absolutely ridiculous that this place is $200/night - we would have been better off staying at the SuperLodge down the street. Then at least we'd only be paying $70/night for what I can assume is the same quality of stay.
If you're staying up by Rhinebeck, Kingston, Saugerties this is a no brainer place to stay. It's very clean, and the staff is fantastic. The pool is small, but indoors. The hotel is in a shopping area which can be really useful if your forgot a bathing suit. There's a Target and JC Penney within walking distance. The Bistro has microwaveable food and Starbucks coffee in pump carafes. The food isn't terribly good, but there are many, many other options outside the hotel. The view from your room can be less than inspiring especially if you're looking out at the dirt field waiting for construction of some kind. These are both very, very minor issues and shouldn't take away from how clean, efficient and well located this hotel is.
We attended an appointment with our Autistic son's bio-medical doctor nearby so location was key. We enjoyed the pool, bistro and the fact that you have alcohol. Certain staff could be a tad bit more friendly. Alcohol prices were a bit high. Breakfast only served to 9:30am/10am weekdays/weekends.
Hotel was clean and front desk staff were friendly. Rooms are large, comfortable and have a nice lay-out. NOISY! Freight trains passing in the night can't be helped. Emptying the trash dumpsters under our window very early in the morning should be re-scheduled. Housekeeping staff POUNDING on our door at 9:15 am when checkout time is 12 noon is unnecessary. The corresponding rude comments made by housekeeping staff are also disrepectful and unprofessional. Very disappointed.
The room was clean and staff was very pleasant. I would stay here again if I return to this area. Very difficult to find. There were no signs on the road indicating there was a Courtyard by Marriott up the hill and behind the large wall. There were signs for all of the shopping stores located up the hill, but not for the hotel. The street sign was also hidden on the opposite side of the exit ramp and right before another exit.
Bed was comfortable Strong odor of cleaning chemicals in room Odor of mold in lobby Poor "free breakfast" choices. Hot was limited to make your own toast. Cold selection was a small selection of packaged muffins or a choice of two cold cereals. Towel rack in bathroom broken Exterior door had gaps between door and frame, also no safety chain sink stopper not connectd. Had to reach under sink to operate stopper TV had a limited number of selections, was older CRT tube model with somewhat small screen, Difficult to find (limited unlit signage)
Great staff, very friendly, beautiful grounds, large rooms, continental breakfast included, microwave and refrigerator in room, Even though the room was large, there was only one chair to sit on.
It was cheap, the sheets seemed clean, the smell was no worse than you'd expect from a crappy motel room (like cigarettes last smoked 15 years ago and cleaning product) and the staff was helpful and friendly. The heat and air con were effective and easy to control. Shower wasn't hot enough, bed was hard and lumpy, cosmetic damage on furniture, peeling wall paper, thin walls through which neighbors could be clearly (and loudly) heard. Not all of he outlets had holes for he ground prong, so I could only just charge my laptop while using it in bed.
Filthy bath tubs and coachroaches, really!
Centrally located where we want to ski in Belleayre and Windham plus proximity to restaurants
I wasn't expecting anything fancy for the price, but whichever reviewer posted on google that it was like paying to stay in a homeless shelter was right on the money. It was nasty, sketchy. The only bonus is they allow dogs but I spent the whole time scared of what my dogs might find in that junk heap.
Fire alarm went off and was told it was common for that to happen daily.
Our heater in the room was broken, but the guy at the front desk was super helpful and changed our room! Great price and place was clean! We also had free breakfast which was a plus! I would recommend this place. Also lots of shopping stores nearby. =)
We needed to be in town for unfortunate reasons, but found the bereavement rates to be exactly the type of affordability we needed. (Having two dogs with us also complicated our needs.) There were variables determining how long we were going to be there. We booked for two nights and twice added on additional nights. Each time, the staff at the desk were kind and made dealing with our lodging very easy. We ended up staying for seven nights and we would certainly go back. Everything was clean. There wasn't a 40-something inch flat screen TV, but it's not that kind of place. Lot of out of town work trucks. Good sign - those guys know which hotels are a good value. Bed was too soft for my liking, but still comfortable and in good shape. Clearly has been a while since it was renovated. The recliner in our room was a bit beat up, but we weren't there to sit on a chair in our hotel room.
The staff was super nice and they comped my room. The bathroom was disgusting. There were hairs stuck to the wall in the shower that were not mine and the whole room smelled like a very strong cleaning solution. The bed was hard as a rock and the cleaning crew started banging around bright and early.
If you are looking for an affordable place to stay with basic needs met then this is for you. Location area great as a lot of things I needed are in walking distance and staff always try help u as best they can.
Super nice reception staff. The friendliest woman helped warm my Ramen noodle soup bowl in the office microwave at 2am and then escorted me to my room. Complimentary breakfast. TV didn't work, hairdryer didn't work, no conditioner, no complementary water, no elevator to second floor, no microwave, no refrigerator, no carpeting hence super slippery floors and dusty room. Management refused to comp or discount my incredibly brief stay of just 8 hours.
I liked the Location , close to everything.. I liked that it was quiet and I could rest when I needed too.. I didn't like the price and the fact that for that inflated price , there was no pool or room service , no cleaning or fresh linen the whole 5 days .
convenient for a business trip
Very clean and pleasant reception No
comfortable bed, quick access to highway, blowdryer, iron & ironing board in room. i suffer from allergies, so: top of tv cabinet very dusty, too much scented 'perfume' on carpets, inacurate directions for internet connection, wi-fi kept losing signal
There was no cable or satellite tv. When I asked they said there was a service/contract prob. in the whole town. I later went to the front desk only to find the desk clerk watching sports on a big flat screen tv.... Hmmm.....no tv...really?!
The beds were very comfortable, the room was spacious, there was a microwave and a refrogerator
the bed was very comfortable and huge, good list of phone numbers of local pizza deliveries too. Pool was dirty but sauna was nice.(small but clean and hot) Its smelled, the heating and the fridge were noisy. Not in walking distance from the lovely town centre (but okay, its a motorway motel)
If you need a place to stay for a night or two, this hotel will do. The rooms are clean and it has many facilities if you choose to use them; such as a pool, laundromat, vending and ice machines etc. Although we had a reservation and confirmation number the hotel had no record of our arrival, nor did they care. Fortunately there were many rooms available.The staff was not very helpful.
Close to our destination Beds were not comfortable. Pillows were stiff.
The bed was extremely comfortable and the place felt clean and safe. Staff was friendly and helpful and the location was conveniently located right off the Thruway. There's also a wonderful diner attached that gives you a 10% discount with your room card! There was some hair from the cleaning staff on the bed and pillows but they were happy to give us fresh sheets and pillow cases when we asked them. The walls are kind of thin so you can hear pretty much everything happening in the rooms around you...
quiet clean room coffee maker pool no
a quiet nice comfortable place
We wre driving to Atlantic City and wanted to stop overnight half way rather than drive direct. This hotel is in desperate need of repair, the rooms and furniture have reached there life expectancy.
food in restaurant was OK needs renovating; rooms OK but corridors, stairwells, public areas generaly need re-decorating
There we not very many people in the hotel. Breakfast was the cheapest continental i have come across in a long time, I thought with an attached restaurant it would have been better. Also, when i checked in the first room they put me in had no hot water.
The beds were comfy, clean and appropriately provisioned. The kids loved the pool! The walls were run down with cracks/old water damage and the window was open a little and wouldn't shut all the way.
a lot of facilities i asked the desk staff for an authorization about a broken suitcase which i asked them to throw (for the insurance), but they refused. I think that they were afraid to take responsibility.
very comfortable bed and swimming pool at location door #2 was constantly left ajar by people placing rocks in the jamb to keep it from closing. it made me feel very uncomfortable. my room door had to be slammed to close, problem was reported but not addressed.
quiet location. Clean but dumpy. the bed was awful..better to have slept on the floor. We had to leave before our time was up because of this. Lots of stairs to climb to the room. The place needs fixing up esp. painting!
Staff very friendly and efficient Shelf over sink was badly located. Near the road....traffic noise
Very nice, clean, quiet. just a few minutes off the Taconic parkway and 12 minutes to Reinbeck or Redhook. You will not find anything in town unless you pay double. Nothing. All good
price Wasn't near Red Hook. Way out in the middle of nowhere
simple clean room Owner came in the morning and yelled at us for using both beds in the room and asked for more money. Apparently we only paid for a room with one bed, but her husband gave us a room with two, so we (2 friends) slept in separate beds. Inappropriate and rude. Management shouldn't come in demanding money for their mistake.
Close to dining. Bath, while small , was updated. Owner was surly. The place is old. Heat was broken, a space heater was provided. Seemed to be primarily a welfare motel ...
did the job. nothing fancy but basically clean way outdated, but you get what you pay for. desk people were fine.
Good bed. Nice people. Good location. Overpriced. Dated facilities. Confusing layout.
Price Noisy road. Pool not open
It was available for less than $150 per night. Staff was Friendly. Dated, aged. Only their for 9 hours, didn't really check out much.
Nothing Everything. The TV in my room caught fire and the smoke detector did not go off. The pool was not open and the rooms were unclean.
Incredibly great owners! Dave and Justine have really thought of everything possible to make their guests feel comfortable, welcome and at home. Tons of little touches in the room to make our stay special. (I scarfed the biscotti, and new ones kept showing up every day! Nobody ever said "wow, you really like biscotti, eh?") The bed was very comfortable and had every extra we could want. Dave has instructed at the Culinary Institute of America and makes breakfast every day so you can guess how well that turned out. My wife has a gluten allergy and they worked with that seamlessly. We explored the Catskills during the day and Justine gave us detailed suggestions about exactly the kind of hikes we were interested in. We had a great stay and would enthusiastically recommend the Smythe House to our friends! Having to leave.
