I checked into the Atlas Motor Lodge around 9 or 930 pm, and whatever candle was burning in the main lobby area smelled really good. (I wish I asked what the fragrance was!) Anyway, I stayed in the main building, so I didn’t get to see what the inside of the rest of the place looked like, but the grounds looked clean and maintained. The location is good, there’s a gas station pretty much right across the street, with a mini mart, Dunkin Donuts and Subway. We didn’t explore the area or anything, since we were just there for one night to avoid driving all the way home at night, but apparently the Walkway Over the Hudson (old rail trail) is really close, and so is New Paltz and Poughkeepsie, if you’re looking for something to do I guess.
It was a little weird going to our room, in the main building; the hallway is narrow and it just felt like walking into a dorm room, or a bedroom in someone’s house. Once we walked into our room, that feeling went away. The room was tiny, but there was enough room for us to set up our pack n’ play for our 5-month-old, and to be comfortable. That said, it was a really nice room; I guess it was one of those renovated rooms I read about on here. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I’ve slept in, with a pillow topper, or something. There was laminate flooring, a flat screen tv, dvd player, a mini fridge and a microwave. The bathroom was a little outdated looking, but really, all you need is a toilet, sink and shower, and they were very clean, so that’s cool.
