“Dont bother with this Hotel”
Reviewed 25 August 2010

My fiance and I have traveled all over the world and i would have to say that this is one of our worst hotels we have stayed in thus far. Hotel looks great from the outside.. First, there was no one to help you with your luggage. Room looks ok when you enter. The worst comes when you are ready for bed. If this is the one of the oldest inns in America, the beds must be from that era as well! They were the worst. I felt like I slept on a wooden board last night. My fiance and i woke up in disgust this morning. I was looking forward to a nice night's sleep only to wake up to a sore neck and back from such an uncomfortable bed. Another annoyance is the early vacuuming of the rugs outside our door. At 8:15 am my fiance had to get out of bed, get dressed ,to go out to hall to ask the cleaning lady to refrain from her vacuuming that early in the morning.
The Staff is not very welcoming. Breakfast is minimal. i would highly recommend staying at another hotel. Its a shame that such a pretty hotel on the outside turned out to be such a disappointment on the inside.

A horrid dump. A travesty of hospitality. If you are staying in rooms 41-44, then you are being robbed. They are in a dingy, malodorous shack behind the main building, with banged-up furniture and dirty curtains. It smells and feels like a wet tent. Any renovation should begin with dynamite. Shame on the hotel for not disclosing these shortcomings to patrons seeking to experience (and paying for) the inn's vaunted history.

Close your eyes at breakfast and you'll think you're at a 7-11. Processed, packaged things wrapped in plastic. Cross any of the nearby streets for better cafes.

Any competition, if it existed, would clean their clock. Rhinebeck deserves better.

Wonderful ambiance but the food was awful. My entree, the homemade porcini-stuffed ravioli, were overwhelmed in a thick, greasy, and tinny tomato sauce and were almost inedible. Very disappointing. You might go here for something simple like a burger, but don't waste your time or money if you're looking for a respectable chef or fine dining.

Last fall I drove with my husband and and another couple to the Hudson River Valley . Besides being goergeous and having lots of places to see and be seen, we found the Beekman Arms. which is the oldest operating inn in the U.S. We could only spend one night but it was heaven. The service was excellente, the ambiance very picturesque and quaint. It has a very English feel and decor, very colonial and tasteful. We had dinner at one of their restaurants and the service was impecable, and the meal superb (having the Culinary Institue of America nearby must count for something). Regarding price it was fairly reasonable comparing other inns in the area. The town is very hospitable and pretty too. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, I would definitely like to go back and spend more time there.

This hotel bills itself as "the oldest Inn in America". That may well be; it's old, tired, and in need of some significant renovation and redecorating. We stayed 2 nights, and we tried to stay out late so that we'd delay returning to the drab room. The room was actually fairly quiet, and it was clean. But it just wasn't a room we cared to spend time in. And there were ongoing problems with the cable TV reception, which might otherwise have been a welcomed distraction. They also had quite onerous cancellation policies. We had booked a room for two nights, and hadn't done our research in advance. After checking in and looking at the room, we thought we'd cancel the second night and find another place to stay. But we found out we would have been trapped into paying for the second night anyway, so we were a captive audience.

The continental breakfast that was included in the room rate was extremely mediocre, at best.

Again, it was clean and reasonably quiet. And we stayed in some wonderful B&B's during our trip in other locations in New York, so the Beekman would have had a hard time competing. To sum up, we'd recommend finding a nice B&B in the area instead of staying here.

After spending a night in Newburgh we ended our tour of the Hudson Valley at the Beekman, and wow, what an ending. It's beautiful inside and out. We ended up in town on a Sunday, the main streets of town had sidewalk sales from the local businesses as well as from local artisans. There was also a farmer's market going on. What a great vibe in the town. After having lunch in one of the local restaurants and doing some shopping, we checked in early - our room was ready and was very cute&clean. When we walked to our room we had the chance to peek in some of the other rooms that were open - I guess before check-in they keep the room doors open. Super cute rooms! Ours was comfortable for one night, a bit small but there was enough room for the two of us. Happily, the room faced the main street which was nice and bustling - but not too loud. The bathroom was spacious.

In the morning we tried the continental breakfast and it was great - granola, fruit, yogurt, french toast, cereals, muffins, juice, coffee, etc. Constantly stocked too.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone, it was a great little stay.

Wei stayed at the Beekman Arms for four nights and found the staff very helpful and friendly. Our room was across from one George Washington had used, and we learned that Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton started their deadly argument in this inn and that FDR launched all of his political campaigns from the front porch. Since it dates back to 1766, it obviously shows some signs of age, but it''s well maintained and very comfortable. An adequate continental breakfast is included, and the downstairs tavern has good food and lots of atmosphere. With shops and other restaurants nearby and beatiful old houses all around, we found walks delightful. We hope to return soon!
