The hotel was in a very convenient place. Very Clean and comfortable. Just would have like healthier breakfast options. The lunch that was provided for the conference was in a bright courtyard.Would definitely stay there again.

Reviewed 25 January 2017

We booked the Best Western Plus as our New Year's Eve wedding venue. In the Kingston, NY area it's hard to find a venue that can serve as a location for the ceremony, reception, and overnight accommodations for guests. We also found that the Best Western was very reasonably priced and worked with us on menu choices to give us...

Great breakfast; pool; pool table; arcade games; clean stairs. Comfortable room which appeared sound insulated. A train goes near by but it was not bothersome or loud. There is plenty of parking. Limited number of TV channels - this is more for an active traveler.

They've done a great job with this hotel. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful and based solely on that I would highly recommend this hotel, but the rooms are also very nice. The only negative is that it is a bit pricey and there is no hot tub. The breakfast is also less than impressive but adequate. Need to...

We were attending a bridal shower in nearby Lake Katrina and decided to stay in the area and explore. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are newly decorated. Breakfast was plentiful, eggs and sausage and fresh waffles. We also took advantage of free room service delivery after being out all day exploring downtown Kingston and Woodstock. Great place.

This location was recently renovated. Everything was clean and well-appointed. Excellent staff, especially those working the breakfast bar in the morning. They hustled to keep things refreshed and clean.
