This place is shabby. Needs new carpets on the outside walkways. Walls and doors were dirty. The door to the room seemed like an inside type of door, not solid for an outside door. My wife did not feel safe. The curtains looked old and worn. There was a smell of sewer gas in the bathroom. The coverlet of the... More

I can't believe this hotel exists in New Paltz! When I think of how beautiful New Paltz is and how it's a mecca for rock climbers, hikers and nature lovers, etc., I can't at all reconcile this place with my image of New Paltz. As several other reviewers have pointed out, there are so many things wrong with this place,... More

That pretty much sums it up. Not only do they not address the rampant mouse problem, they also fraudulently charged me $150 for carpet cleaning b/c they said I had a pet in the room. If the pet in the room was the mouse I never wanted then yes, guilty. The health department needs to shut this place down.

We don't have any mice in are room and if you had seen them on the first night that you stayed we could have moved you another room, but you stayed in the room for three day and then wright a False complaint on tripadvisor. Also for those three nights that you stayed you had your pet in the room... More

Not sure why others are being so harsh, it's a nice place. Yes the outside needs a bit of touch up, but you're not sleeping outside. The room was nice, clean and beds were good, bathroom was clean, they have a pool which is nice and a little breakfast in the morning. For the price you really can't complain. Everyone... More

This is by far the worst place I have ever seen. The entire place is in total disrepair. Smelly, worn, frayed, carpet on the outside stairs, complete safety hazard. Front desk rude! We were so disgusted by the outside that we asked to see a room before we signed in. The room was in as much disrepair as the outside.... More

We wanted a good reasonably place to stay while we were in New Paltz and that's what the Econo Lodge was. It had a nice breakfast with juice, coffee, cereal, bagels and pastries and a nice little pool that was big enough to do laps in. The people at the desk were very nice and friendly too. I even liked... More

This place is in dire need of cleanup and upgrading, but it's honestly just fine for a night. Most importantly, the bathroom was clean! Bed was ok, and there was no shortage of heat for the chilly night we had.The minifridge and microwave were good for convenience. Carpet could use a good shampoo, but that's what flip-flops are for! I... More

when we rented you the room there was some miscommunication the whole room was yours both side. you did not share the room with anyone. Your room was one of our family/group rooms. so if you were part of a group and two couples it would work like this, on one side one couple would stay and on the other... More

We stayed here 1 night in August 2013. Room was fine. And the pool was nice. Breakfast was decent. I don't know what the other people are complaining about. It is a basic hotel -- what do you want? Everything was just what you could hope for.
