My son and I were driving around the Catskills area and we ended up in New Paltz around 5 pm so we decided to spend the night there. We looked at a couple other places nearby (Econo and Super 8) but at $92 p/n they (87 Motel) were the cheapest so we went with them. The room had all the... More

I know. It's dated. The sign flickers. The decor has not changed since the 1950's, the wallpaper is peeling in places. BUT, having returned as to a long-lost home, among all the high-priced options in Newburgh and Fishkill, examining the fleabags 20 minutes away, I gotta say: The price is not the cheapest. The bed is THE MOST COMFORTABLE I've... More

It took us forty minutes to check into our three rooms, even though we have stayed here for a number of years in the past and had made reservations 3 months earlier. The manager was a very strange character who somehow tried to turn every complaint back on to you, the guest. For instance, our shades were a bit torn... More

I recommend number 56 on the Chinese menu. Basic low end motel unfortunately doesn't have vibrating beds which was very disappointing. What's a cheap motel without vibrating... More

This place was a nice surprise for desperate, weary travelers. It was no Ritz Carleton but it was quiet with a very friendly front desk staff. It's convenient to the highway, downtown New Paltz and the campus.

Saw a Dr and they confirmed that they were bed bug bites. When I called to notify them. They told me I was crazy and that they wouldnt do anything for me and... More

Stayed for only one night - thank goodness! Had to wait till 4:30 to get into our room. This place is in desperate need of an update. And a thorough cleaning. Empty chip bag and broken sunglasses under the bed, stained and wet carpet. The bed was comfortable enough, but the pillows were pancake-thin. Only 2 thin towels and washcloths... More

Pretty bad. We housed 4 employees (two rooms) from our company for two days. They left early in the morning came back around 8 pm the beds were not made, no clean towels, soap and so on. The worst, part nobody in front desk to talk to.

My family and I have been staying at 87 Motel for 4-5 years around Columbus Day weekend. After our 2011 stay, I wrote a very critical review of the place: it used to be simple yet cozy, but then new owners let it fall in complete disrepair (during our 2011 stay, the room heater was not working, the bathroom had...
