Motels/Hotels near Vassar?

We are beginning our college search for our daughter and plan to visit Vassar College. Can anyone recommend any motels or hotels pretty close to Vassar? Thanks

1. Re: Motels/Hotels near Vassar?

There are all kinds of standard hotels on Route 9. I like the Holiday Inn Express that's at the corner of Sharon and Rte. 9. There's also a Best Western, a Courtyard, and a Residence Inn all within a couple of miles on Route 9. Be aware that the Courtyard, even after its renovation, has a very damp sensation and moldy odor in the rooms. I quit staying there because of that problem. I have friends who really like the Residence Inn.

The Holiday Inn Express is a nice basic hotel and the staff is exemplary. Also, you get better rates on the Priority Club website than you will get over the phone (normally) and if you're 50 join AARP and you get even better rates.

I can't believe no one responded to your question! Poughkeepsie is a busy, active community. I love it there. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just a few weeks ago when we went to a West Point game (my son may go there next year). Be aware that any time there's an event going on at the colleges (Vassar, Culinary Institute of America, Marist College) that it is very, very difficult to get a room reserved, so make plans early.
