“Fine, Clean Motel; Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2009

1. The location was good. It was on the main highway and only a few minutes from FDR’s home. In the opposite direction, the Culinary Institute was close as well. There were restaurants and a supermarket within a 5-minute or so drive.
2. The price was very reasonable.
3. The hotel was a typical 1950’s-ish motel. The room was clean, simple and functional. There was a pool in the back, although I did not use it. The bathroom was just like the bathroom in the house that I grew up in, and was perfectly adequate for its intended purpose.
4. The owner and his wife were very nice and friendly. There was coffee, orange juice and donuts/muffins for breakfast, free of charge.
Overall, it’s not the Ritz, but was a fine motel for a short stay. I have no complaints.

Located on Rt. 9 convenient to FDR home & library, Val-Kill, Vanderbilt Mansion, Staatsburg. 1950's style motel, brick exterior, dreary room. However , it was inexpensive and clean and I felt safe there. Continental breakfast of grocery store pastries, juice, coffee, tea. Towels were ample, but scratchy. Popular old style diner close by. Sadly Rt. 9 in Hyde Park has 1950's era services - restaurants, drive-in movie, older movie theatre, a modern grocery store, other stores. Golden Manor is set back enough from the traffic. Has brick exterior. Other motels close by are of similar vintage. Older couple running it were pleasant enough. If you crave elegance look in Rhinebeck which has done a very good historic preservation job.

We stayed at the Golden Manor Motel for one week when we first moved to Poughkeepsie and were waiting for our furniture to be delivered. We stayed in one of their efficiency units which was huge and roomy, had a kitchenette with table, desk, 2 beds and plenty of room for all of our luggage that we were carrying with us. This motel is of the era when my parents used to take us kids on vacation in the station wagon and we would stay at a small family-run motel that was affordable and no-frills. It is retro and old-fashioned but extremely comfortable, exceptionally clean and served our needs quite well. They had fast wireless internet in the room, which is not advertised on their website so it was a nice surprise. The owners were very nice and friendly to us, especially the wife, and this family has been running the motel for 22 years. I would highly recommend this place for anyone needing a inexpensive place to stay in the Hudson Valley area ($65/night). The Hyde Park Brewing Company is right next door so you can easily walk to a nice dinner and pint of brew.

  • Liked — affordability, huge room, super fast internet
  • Disliked — complimentary breakfast was pre-made pastries but coffee was great

fairly priced.

the only budget motel/hotel i stayed that provides 100% Tropicana orange juice that is NOT from concentrate. And carton of Half-half coffee cream that shows the expiration date.

actaully all the breakfast pastries were in the original packages that showed the expiration date, which i always pay attention to.

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.
