“AVOID the TARNISHED GOLD-en Manor”
Reviewed 2 June 2008

The proprietress gave our reservations away, despite early arrival and an advanced deposit, and then tried Trump-style negotiating to get us to take a smoking room. She finally agreed to give us a non-smoking room (that no doubt someone else had booked) but would not honor the AAA discount. Such a class operation, they give you the TV remote with the key, and charge for both if not returned to the front desk. I have not been in a place with pull-string florescent light fixtures and tiny cot-sized beds since summer camp! Too cheap and broken down to be kitsch. It reeked of insecticide, but was cleaner than some higher end places I've stayed at. Only stay here if you have no other alternatives!!!

EEEK! This place is Scary! I stayed here on May 3rd 2008. It hasn't been renovated since the early 1960s. Furniture is ancient and broken down. Sheets and towels were stained and had holes in them. Heat was stuck on at 75 degrees. Bathroom is so small you have to sit sideways on the toilet. RUN FAST and FAR from this place.

rooms were ok but the service was horrible in the evening and
ok in the morning. They acted like they were doing me a favor in staying there and were not pleasant at check in.

The owners are very kind and pleasant..not at all like the previous review. Adorable grand children photos! Very hard working. The rate is amazing and the rooms are LARGE and very clean (just dated on the decorating and furniture front). That's all most of us ask for...plus it's right across the street from the AMAZING Franklin Roosevelt estate and Presidential Library/ museum. Don't miss it! Then I went to Val-Kill, Eleanor Roosevelt's cottage tour which is right around the corner! Go north to adorable Rhinebeck, or go across the street and up a few blocks to see the enormous Vanderbilt mansion. We went back and forth to Vassar college for something....very easy. Will return to this super-deal find.
Coffee, juice, doughnuts, muffins each morning too. FREE.
Also a soda vending machine and ice available. Air conditioning was fine too. CLEAN. No bugs.

We chose this place because it is directly across the street from the FDR site and it had a pool. (We visited during a heat wave.) Provided basic accomodation per the AAA guide book. No welcome. Weird practice of charging up front with a crude hand lettered sign proclaiming, "NO REFUNDS." Desk clerk got angry when my husband could not find the ice bucket. (It was there but the man was rude.) My advice is to try to find a place in Poughkeepsie when visiting the sites at Hyde Park.

Older motel that we chose for the low price. While the "breakfast " was donuts and muffins, coffe & juice, it was also complimentary and not advertised at all. The owners, who appeared to run the lobby, were older people of foreign extraction. They were prompt in filling a request for a softer pillow (The ones in the room were brand new.) The room was spacious but if you want decor, try the Ritz ; at at this price it was so good we came back to spend an extra night and moved on in the AM rather than travel and check in late the evening before. A great place from which to radiate out to see the many attractions in the mid Hudson Valley.

The lady at the front desk was quite possibly the rudest clerk I have ever come in contact with. She was very harsh, and very mean, although her pet was cute. Then she gave us a room with 3 queen sized beds....and it was just me and my boyfriend. Of course, he and I were very confused, but the room was ok. She was just incredibly rude and made us feel unwelcomed.
