“Stay Away! Or, only if desperate, sleep in the back of the building!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

Aside from the very nice host(ess) at the check-in on a Friday night, our stay at this place was a total disaster. A bar across the street was the main culprit although close to midnight an ambulance pulled up to the lobby entrance and idled and flashed there for about an hour. The bar let out after 2 am and the noice continued for another hour as people loitered on the street back up to town. As with most rooms now, a horribly annoying blue LED light on the TV felt like a migraine-about-to-happen, this while looking around the room at 1, 2, 3 am since noise outside had made sleeping a joke. Next morning's TV blasting in the breakfast room was just another nuisance and that along with the awful, weak coffee sent these "guests" fleeing to town for java. This was a totally horrid place to stay and the morning host(ess) couldn't have cared less about a guest's comments or commentary on a bad stay. So "stay" away, we advise.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2010

With economy hotels, there are some natural weakness, they just won't be able to compete with the full service hotels on quality of furniture, sheets and towels. But you can compare cleanliness & service. Our room at the super 8 was very, very clean. The furniture was new and in good condition. The Super 8 is a great value for the money.

Where the New Paltz Super 8 excels is the customer service. When checking in Colleen - moved us to a room away from the thruway, because it's much quieter. She mentioned HBO was on channel 20, I commented about hoping that Big Love would be on. About an hour later, our room phone rings, it was Colleen telling us the Season Premier of Big Love would be on at 9pm. I just thought that was the best.

There are some faults with the New Paltz Super 8, it's hard to find the entrance. It's right next to the thruway and it's at the edge of town, you would need to drive to enjoy any of the bars, shops and restaurants of New Paltz.

I grew up in New Paltz so I usually go up there and stay at the Super 8 at least once a year when not staying with friends or family. It has never disappointed and continues to get better. With the addition of the free WiFi and the continued renovation of rooms, combined with the free continental breakfast, the Super 8 in New Paltz provides an excellent value for the money. I travel a great deal for work and pleasure and the Super 8 is a better property than others I've stayed at for two or three times the cost. My only minor complaint is that the bathroom was still a bit run down (mainly the tub) but it was clean and there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure and that is what is most important to me. I also like that they have a make-up mirror in the bathroom as well. Another addition as part of the room renovations is a great large screen LCD HD TV with a full range of channels. After a long drive to New Paltz from Maryland, it was nice to be able to relax at the Super 8. The continental breakfast offered a variety of options and the staff was great.

what more can one wish. Fast, efficient check-in. Had come to New Paltz for a Hudson River School showing at the University. Enjoyed a fine dinner at The Village Tearoom.

This motel deserves a good review because of is comparison to other motels in New York state! We had a lovely room with a king bed and a large wide screen TV. Everything was clean and we had the best nights sleep we got on the road - thanks to a comfortable bed.

There seemed to be permanent residents in the hotel but that wasnt a problem. WIFI is free and breakfast is served in the communal kitchen.

The didn't seem to be much in the New Paltz area. We ate in the Guilded Otter restaurant as recommended by the hotel staff but the food there was no better than average.

My husband and I traveled around upstate NY on a low key, spur-of-the-moment vacation. We found this hotel online and were a little hesitant due to some bad reviews prior to renovations. However, the hotel was clean and cheap and had comfortable down pillows, a flat screen tv, and free wifi.
I thought the breakfast was decent as far as free breakfasts go--cereal, oatmeal, toast, pastries--I was hoping for some eggs or something with protein prior to our hiking through the catskils, but for the price I was still impressed overall with this hotel.

Ive been to a couple of hotels in New Paltz and must say that this one the reviews are right: friendly staff, clean rooms, solid location (tucked underneath the highway but there is a mall down the road, diner (great one), cinema. 24 hour coffee and tea. The complimentary breakfast was good. I would stay in this hotel again. Would not try to book online...call instead and you can get better rates.
