I don't know about the other folks reviewing this motel but this HoJo was a pretty tired building. The bathroom was from 1950's. The breakfeast was a chit for 10 or 20% off in a diner located on the parking lot. It was not associated with HoJo, just a privately owned diner. The price was much cheaper than the Comfort Inn, located next door to the HoJo,that in it's self might be an attraction for the traveler. I've stayed at the Comfort Inn otfen. This time The CI was booked solid so, ti left me with the HoJo. The room appeared clean,but the next morning she awoke scratching. Her legs were covered with red bite marks. I did not have them but I had a seperate bed. BED BUGS?? It wasn't mosquitoe bites that 's for sure. The Comfort Inn leaves the HoJo in the dust as far as nicer rooms, 100% better breakfeast with all the trimmings. So far no bed bugs either.
I will not stay at the HoJo again. If the CI is filled, I'll stay in Kingston, NY and spend another 10 minutes driving to see my daughter and my grandkids in Saugerties.This HoJo needs a complete overhaul and bring it into the 21st Century.

Planned to stay overnight because we were visiting perspective colleges but the hotel was REALLY nice.... the room decor is usually found in more expensive hotels and there is so much to do in the area so we stayed TWO extra days!. The pool and sauna were very relaxing after stressful day of visiting 2 college campuses... pool and sauna - open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Helpful staff that told us about hiking trails in the Catskill region and wonderful places to visit that pleased our youngest (6 years old) and our oldest (18 years old) and the two inbetween. We went to nearby Woodstock and Hyde Park, had fun at a free jazz festival at Hunter Mountain. Good restaurant on premises that offers 10% discount plus LOTS of great restaurants in town and surrounding area. We plan to go back for skiing and for local festivals.

we wanted to take a break from driving and get some rest in this motel that advertised the indoor swimming pool and sauna...It was a bit more expensive than other motels but the chance of swimming and sauna made us stay there. What a disappointment! The pool and sauna showers and bathrooms are in immediate need of repairs and on top of that they were really filthy with leaks, cracks, mildew and spiders walking around. The room was ok but not up to the standards for the price of $150 per night with a discount... No complimentary breakfast either not even some coffee and toast or something like any other motel in the area offers

Not luxury but clean enough for one night. The beds were comfy, the rooms a nice size with some updates but also a bit of wear and tear. I consider this a one night stop not a place to stay for any length of time. Super convenient to the highway.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for an anniversary and it was great! We were greeted by a nice girl at the desk who put the phone on hold to help us and even let us request where our room was. The room wasn't HUGE but that wasn't a problem since most of our time was spent out in nature. I enjoyed the fact that the room came with a fridge and microwave, there is a CVS, liquor store, and grocery store a minute down the road for anything you may have forgotten / need. Even though we were right on the highway when the windows were shut we couldn't hear a thing! It is close to so many attractions, and priced well so I would definitely suggest this hotel

Pretty basic hotel bit overpricced,(around 80$) few inches from the highway.
Its clean and they have brand new rooms with windows that fully open.
Comfortable rooms but NO HBO.
Lot of truckers stay there because its just off the highway
Its good enough to sleep 1 night but really NOT a destination by itself

AVOID AT SUMMER TIME AROUND JUNE JULY THEY CHARGE 185$/NIGHT
IT'S NOT WORTH MORE THAN 50 BUCKS A NIGHT
