Stayed here when attending a wedding at a nearby site. Online photos were nice and the description sounded ok, although it did seem a bit expensive for the region. Mainly, though, we selected it because it was so near the wedding. Our room was ok but was totally lacking in decent amenities, especially for the price being charged. There was...

We were in 110 which proved to be a disaster. The heating system didn't work - we were given a space heater to keep it warm (but didn't help much). The toilet broke (never stopped running) although we told the front desk twice to fix it. On the second night the handle broke so we had to change rooms at...

Hotel was average at best: worn and rusted decor, non-functioning plumbing, extremely slow check-in, less than desirable breakfast. However, the river view is beautiful as is the patio area. I most likely will not stay again. I bumped the review to average for the location and view.

We stayed at the Inn at Glen Sanders Mansion while visiting for a funeral. The staff was very considerate, even extending check out to very late in the afternoon to accomodate us.

I loved the early review about so much potential. I have been coming here on business for about three years. And I have noticed a very slow decline in overall service and cleanliness. I really like the charm of that however I think there's a huge opportunity for upgrades coffee in the room laundry service says et Cetera et Cetera....

Overall, enjoyed my daughter's wedding weekend at the Glen Sanders. We did have some trouble with the reservations, which caused me concern from the start. Our room was clean and comfortable; however, the lighting in the bathroom was awful. I had to go to my sister's room to do my make-up and hair. Although my bathroom was updated compared to...

We were to stay here Thursday through Sunday for a wedding. The room assigned the first night was in terrible disrepair, dirty and run down. Requested a move and were reassigned without question to the second floor river side. This room was better but not by much, as with the first, run down, cleaner but not what I expect for...

My husband and I bought a "Travelzoo" voucher for this property which was a mid-week getaway. We live in Manhattan and wanted to get away for a couple of days before our busy September started and didn't want to drive. The price was right and the pictures looked lovely.

We had a beautiful view of the Hudson from the balcony of our room. Below us was a gazebo, outdoor seating, a fire pit, and lovely landscaping. The rooms were quiet, as was the hotel, and the staff was very accommodating. Kevin was particularly gracious, as were Dave and Nancy. All ere friendly, courteous and professional.

I was torn with this review because of the potential it has to be outstanding. If you notice, most reviews come from wedding guests. I'm sure that they do a great job with weddings. The property is idyllic for a wedding. With only 22 rooms, and everything but a few rooms being on the first floor, I would not want...
