“Historic Inn, unique rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I heard about this inn from a friend and ended up staying here on business the following week. It's in a historic building, in a historic district. The rooms was spacious, every thing I wanted and a heck of a lot better than the chains. The ceilings are 10' high, my room had a chandelier and a nice view overlooking the street. There's even a billiard room here. My only issue was that the restaurant wasn't opened Sunday or Monday (at least during winter), but that was okay. Oh, there is a bar and that was open. I took the opportunity to try out a restaurant in the Italian district, very nice. The price was $100 per night and while it might have been a higher than a Red Roof, it was worth the minor extra for comfort and experience.

My wife and I stayed in the Stockade Inn and found the room to be adequate. The room was clean, the hallway quiet, and the wifi worked. The food was excellent. The Inn is conveinently located accross the river from Schenectady.

Coming from over 2 hours away,we were looking for a place to spend the night after seeing a show at the Proctors Theater in order to avoid the late drive home. This one ranked tops on tripadvisor and did not disappoint. It perfectly met our need.
It is a historic building, recently renovated into an inn (2003, I believe) primarily serving as a popular restaurant (we would also recommend- we had Thanksgiving dinner there) with the guest rooms upstairs.
As another reviewer commented, the reception area was a small space to one side of the stairs.

We spent an hour pre-theater in the lounge having a very nice (and reasonably priced) cocktail and listening to an entertaining trio. We walked to the theater (10-15 minutes) and at no time felt concerned about our safety. Many people were out walking about.
In the morning we had a very enjoyable walk to the river and around the historic Stockade district.
Breakfast was very basic... yogurt, cereal, packaged pastries. But as I mentioned, we were planning to have our Thanksgiving dinner there at noon and were not interested in much that morning.
If there was one thing in particular that was a bit disappointing to us, it was that the lounge and entertainment closed down between 10 and 11, so we did not enjoy any post theater outing. The Inn itself was locked at the point we returned (about 11pm) and we buzzed to be let in. We were aware of this in advance however.

Charming, quirky hotel with lots of winding hallways and old-fashioned charm. We didn't have an advanced reservation but they were able to get us quickly settled in a nice room and offered us a break on the rack rate without needing to ask! The walls are a little thin, however - our neighbor was rather ill after spending too much time at the bar and we could hear his unfortunate stomach pangs quite clearly... not the hotel's fault, but if you're a light sleeper, perhaps ask for a room that's a bit more remote from the other guests! The nearby historic streets made for a lovely pre-dinner walk.

the good - reception was good and helpfull, the room was spacious enough, it is not a suite just a hotel room.
It was very clean, comfortable beds, cosy bar with internet access (important right?)
Nice bathroom,
The hotel had a restaurant and If I were traveling with my wife would have definitely eaten there.
the not so good - it is an old hotel which was not fully turned into a modern hotel.
There is no reception desk, they sit under the stairs (really!).
Breakfast area is located in the same place where dinner is served which is essentially a bar.
No elevator so we had to carry our heavy suitcases up the narrow stairs.

If you're staying in Schenectady, this is the place to be. Admittedly, there is not a huge selection in Schenectady, but the Stockade Inn ranks highly amongst any historic hotel. Very friendly staff, nice bar, fantastic snooker room. Good location, plenty of on site free parking.

The hotel is located in the historic Stockade district which meant we could enjoy an evening walk through the neighborhood for a nice meal and drinks in a restored pub. Our room was large with a comfortable king size bed. However, the next morning we both had cold showers even after letting the water run a while. The hotel clerk apologized but only offered to give us a $10 discount the NEXT time we visit...not likely, we live 1500 miles from here!

We are so sorry for your cold shower. We had an electrical problem with a 2 year old hot water heater that was rectified within 2 hours, but unfortunately not quick enough for your shower.

We hope you may consider us again.
