“Perfectly acceptable motel”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is everything a basic roadside motel should be. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, and basic amenities.

In no way, shape or form is this a resort or a destination in and of itself. In fact, there's really not all that much to do there. However, totally acceptable place to stay.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

Thank you for reviewing the hotel. I am pleased to hear you found the hotel to your liking. We are in a great location, walking distance to a variety of shops, restaurants and historic sites. Come back and take a walk through Locust Grove, the home of Samuel B Morse, right across the street from the hotel. Did you know we were only a few short miles away from the Walkway over the Hudson, the longest pedestrian walkway in the country? We're also a few miles from the FDR Home and Presidential Library. When you visit us again, be sure to enjoy some of these great activities! Our front desk would be happy to assist you in planning your stay.

Best regards,

Was in town for a family wedding had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Poughkeepsie, NY.

Ali was great checking us in and making sure both I and my parents, who had arrived a day earlier, were well taken care of.

Our group had two rooms, they were both well appointed and clean. The housekeeper was also very nice and went out of her way to ask us how the wedding went when she saw us the next day.

Breakfast bar was standard Holiday Inn Express fare and good... the amount of people staying in the hotel made it hard for the staff to keep it well stocked.

Overall great staff and great stay. Nice location there on Route 9, one of the major thoroughfares for the area, with a lot of great shops and restaurants in close driving distance. The Vanderbilt Estate and Hyde Park, which are both gorgeous, are just up the road.

Also, if you want some authentic NY pizza, we ordered a pizza from TJ's who delivered quickly to the hotel and makes a great pie :)

Many thanks for reviewing the hotel! It is great to hear you found your room and bathroom very clean and to your liking. The staff here does a great job at keeping the hotel superbly clean. They are also some of the friendliest people in town. They enjoy what they do and it certainly shows in how they maintain the hotel and interact with guests. Be sure to visit again and enjoy the pool. Sitting in the pool area feels almost as if you are at a resort, instead of in the middle of a city!

Have travelled to Poughkeepsie many times, and will now only stay at this hotel. It is conveniently located, and has easy entrance and exit either direction on busy Route 9. The rooms are spotless, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are well appointed with great water pressure for a nice hot shower. Every area of the hotel is beautifully maintained. To top it off, the manager of this Holiday Inn, Mr. Oliver Silva, is one of those rare individuals who truly cares about his guests! His professionalism and concern for us during our recent stay was exemplary! All around a great place to stay!

I was at the property for one night, arriving on the late side, and leaving early. I think I had less than 12 hours at the hotel! Staff members were very friendly, and the hotel was spotless. My room was neat, clean, and comfortable. A minor "knock" on the hotel was that the elevaor seemed oddly located. Also, when I tried to use the television that evening, the satellite kept cutting in an out, and eventually all I got was 'no signal' warnings. Since I had plenty of work to do, it was not a major inconvenience, but it was a bit annoying. I would be fine staying here again.

I stayed in most of the box hotels in the Poughkeepsie and all are basically the same. The Holiday Inn Express isn’t the newest hotel but it was exactly what I need in a hotel: a clean room, good service, hot shower and a good night’s sleep. The internet was acceptable and they offered a decent free breakfast each morning.

The managers were always present. The Office Manager checked me in, the Maintenance Man drove me in the free shuttle to the train station and the Hotel Manager checked me out – pretty impressive. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are a lot of choices within 5 minutes of the hotel. The staff told me about the Walkway over the Hudson, a few minutes away, in which you can stroll on the bridge over the Hudson – a nice way to walk off dinner and take in views of the river.

Thank you so much for such a great review! I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay - and that you noticed how we all get involved with the guests. We enjoy getting to know our guests and all do what we can to ensure they have a great stay. The staff keeps the hotel very clean and comfortable, while the front desk keeps up with all that's happening in the area. Glad you enjoyed the Walkway! Did you happen to see how close the chorus line got to a world record? Be sure to come back soon and see it when the flowers are all in bloom, and of course, stay with us again!
