So if you have read any of my other reviews of this area, you will already know that I only come here Memorial and Labor Day weekends. Hotels/motels fill up long in advance and charge exorbitant rates. In Sept 2012 I stayed in a great room at the Atlas Motel..and tried to book it for Memorial Day 2013, but it was already booked. The manager, Neil.. persuaded me to trust the ongoing renovations at their 'sister hotel' America's Best Value Inn. Truthfully, I was reluctant.. but I trusted him. I was right to do so.
Flash forward 9 months, I can't find my reservation info. (I found it later,) and in this area, you can not NOT have a reservation on a holiday.so I will confess to an all out panic, .. . However, they found it in a heartbeat and forwarded it to me pronto. Personal service began right there.
The Inn is easy to roll by. Use the Bagel place as your landmark as it is right behind it. It is a two level connectedfacility..and I was on the 2nd floor. the photo of the exterior shown is true. I was in room 207and had an excellent experience. As I understand it, all of the rooms have been renovated to different degrees .. but there are commonalities. good plumbing, bath fixtures.. beds..modern t.v.s, microwaves, refrigerator..
My bathroom had quality matching fixtures ,..large attractive tiles.. hairblower and could have slept a family...... But I'm quite sure they are not all that big ! Surprisingly, my room also had granite top tables and a bigger than average tv.. guess it pays to book 9 months in advance ! the floor was woodgrain, with an attractive unusual circular rug.. and the bed quality was very good. My room faced a back area . felt private and countrish...everything green and I liked that a lot .. There was a large chair that opened into a bed if needed. Lighting was also good in the room,adequate..intelligently placed plugs. Coffeemaker
(, but I'd recommend the on premises bagel shop instead). Convenience store and gas across the street.. It was quiet and yet very close to highway .. Center of New Paltz 10? minutes away. The only issue I had, was with wifi in my room, and manager was surprised to hear it.. but thought it might be the storm we were having. He said there is an alternative host to use if this should ever happen in future and to ask the front desk.
I never mentioned the price. It was drastically less than the other hotels/motels in the area for the same weekend, and they ...with seriously mixed reviews. I wish more places had management that was responsive like this and I will happily stay here again.
