“Perfect place to relax after mountain biking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My wife and I biked the Mohawk/Hudson River Trail and stayed over night at the Stockade Inn. The hotel location is prefect for the trail outing. Arriving from NJ we got to the hotel just before noon. Even though we were 4 hours early for the check-in time, they made sure the room was ready within an hour. The hotel is very quiet and charming. We reserved the 300sq ft room and the space was plentiful. The bathroom was modern and super clean. The hotel surrounding area is beautiful. Great place to walk around. Nice restaurants nearby. Breakfast was minimal but just enough to start your day adventure.

Room Tip: Ask for recently updated room.

We stayed at the Stockade Inn because of a wedding down the street. I loved the old character of this place. Hotels do not have this kind of charm any more. And the price was great! everything was very clean and the staff was very nice. The only negative was the elevator.. It's tiny and a little scary but I didn't take it because there is only a few floors and unless your handicap everyone should use the stairs anyways.

Room Tip: We stayed in a basic room and compared to the suites it was a little more modern and not a sunny (wh...

Lovely historic inn located in NY first preserved historic neighborhood. Rooms are large modern amenities Could use a little refurbishing. Sunday brunch wAs delicious. For those who prefer a non chain experience this is the place to stay

It's an interesting inn and history but for my taste it's a little too historic. More old than elegant. The wine by the glass selection was really bad and dinner wasn't much better. When even the bread isn't tasty and the specialty of the house (veal) arrives more like soup than a meat and vegetable dish, it just doesn't work.

I couldn't help but think that this could be a really fun, intersting place to stay, but more attention to detail and an upgrading is needed. We understood that they were in the process of renovations, so perhaps checking back in a few months will prove useful. Hotel is in an nice neighbourhood. Older towels. Older interiors which are beginning to show their wear. Continental, selfserve Breakfast was pre-packaged and substandard.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms. Not sure why they didn;t put us in one as the Hotel was empty

I was in the area on business for two weeks and my client suggested the inn. If you're in town for a special event or like boutique hotels, this is for you. I ended up cutting my stay short and I moved to the Hampton on State.

The floor was very dirty, items in my room were mistaken as trash, the bureau drawers were not cleaned between guests because I found someone's shirt, if there is an event forget about finding a parking spot, if there is an event be prepared to run into noisy drunkards, the continental breakfast is lackluster and the internet connection is horrible.

The building is gorgeous, reminded me of places we've stayed in London and Dublin. The surrounding neighborhood is an amazing place to walk and sightsee. The free parking behind the building is a bonus. The room was nice, clean, large, with a comfortable bed. The woman who greeted us was very friendly and helpful. Overall, a very good choice to stay the night but I was disappointed in breakfast the next morning. It was laid out on the bar and basically it was vending machine food. Danish, muffins, cinnamon rolls, all wrapped in plastic. There were some plastic containers of cereal and bagels and a metal trough for juices, milk cartons and some yogurt. There was also coffee and a toaster. Just not what I expected from such a magnificent looking place. I've spent $50 less a night and had hot food choices in the morning. The Inn has such a fantastic restaurant attached to it, surely something can be done to improve breakfast and make a great stay complete.
