"Average hotel in a quite bleak neighborhood"
As a frequent visitor to the United States, I have come to realize that neighborhoods can vary from blocks to blocks. In that case, unfortunately, the variation is quite unfortunate. Do not let the fact that the hotel is located in the magnificent Hudson valley and near Vassar College fool you. The neighborhood is pretty bleak and even quite dangerous. […] Main Street, which is a few block further is not safe and I would strongly advise against going to this hotel if you do not have a car, because the rod to and from the Poughkeepsie station looks really hazardous. The hotel itself is okay but the room smells quite funky. We were given a smoking room without being advertised and as the hotel was full, it was impossible to change for a non-smoking room. The TV was not working well and the first room that we had was very badly located without a window on the parking lot. Fortunately, the service is good and the personnel is quite friendly and helpful. The breakfast is not really 'continental' as indicated in the info. It is a quite generic buffet but at least there is a wide variety of choices. In sum, though it might be a correct hotel if you are on a quick stay to another destination, I would strongly advise against this hotel for a romantic getaway in the Hudson Valley.

"Not a very nice part of town. Very run down."
We had our bikes in the back of our SUV and were nervous to leave them there overnight. The only saving grace was finding a nice restaurant downtown. "Brasserie 292"Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, nice staff, next time i might try the poolGenuine Expedia guest review

We had to take a smoking room because Expedia will not guarantee that you will get a non-smoking room. In addition, the room cost way too much for the condition of the motel. Blankets had cigarette burns and carpet was dirty. Will not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"suprisingly bad neighborhood"
I counted 16 motorcycles in the lot on Sunday night. Not that that's a bad thing. .The staff were al very nici was expcting a little more upscale when booked close to Vassar..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Vassar College"
Overall, the hotel was nice. The front desk staff was very friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. Although the hotel has been renovated and was very clean, it is clearly an older facility. The room had two double beds, and therefore there was not a lot of floor spaces. The room had one chair. Since there were two people in the room, it would […] have been nice to have two chairs. And, the bathroom was very small (similar to European bathrooms). The breakfast area was much better than the other part of the hotel. And, the breakfast (served until 11:00 a.m.) was very good. There was freash fruit, pancakes, cereal (hot and cold), danish, toast and coffee, tea, milk and juices. However, as a diabete, it would have been nice to have one or two low-carb foods (e.g., eggs, meat, etc.). Vassar College was about a 10 minute walk. I would stay at this facility again.

"We came back!"
My family had to come back to the same area a year later and I booked this hotel again without hesitation. Overall experience was pleasent: staff was friendly, breakfast was nice, gym was fine, business center was fine... we did not have any complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very dissatisfied with the quality compared with other hotels that had similar ratings. There was a musty odor in the room, it was very dated and I didn't feel safe at all with the surrounding area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The faucet in the bathroom was loose. The bathroom window needed a blind or curtain. If you were undressing and the light was on in the bathroom after dark, your silhouette could be seen from outside. The room slightly smelled like mildew.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
About the only good thing about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
4 people in each room I booked. Only two large towels provided. Was told from front desk there were no more available. We had to go to the pool in order to have a towels for each person. to shower. Breakfast was good. Room was clean, but first room I entered had a terrible smell. We were moved immediately. Outside grounds looked newly renovated. Inside […] had most amenities. Okay for an overnight. Pool and exercise room were good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Picked this hotel because they accept pets, however, the room smelled so badly of old urine it was hard to sleep. The shower started out hot then turned ice cold for a minute then hot again. Not a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
bathrooms were clean, pretty decent stay...I think the price should have been more in the 89.00 range but not too bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Served our needs perfectly"
We needed a budget location that was clean, in a decent neighborhood. It was exactly that with the bonus of a no frills indoor pool and a decent free breakfast (highlights: make your own waffles, fruit, boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, bagels). They easily accommodated us with a cot when we added to our party. Service was friendly. I really can't complain […] about anything - besides the cracked lifeguard buddy - but that's just being nitpick. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We've had a good stay here, the room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was decent, too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Only one problem"
Hotel staff was great. But the reviews are true....the morning coffee is cold and that is what you are going to get.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Better than expected room. Pool was lacking, but not why chose this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fairly good deal for the area."
The Days Inn is probably the best deal for Poughkeepsie if you get a good price. The hotel is safe (very important there) and clean. The staff are courteous though not overly friendly. The rooms are comfortable though a bit outdated and worn. The pool is not very well maintained but it is clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Days Inn has a friendly & helpful staff."
Friendly front desk service and lovely, helpful housekeepers.Genuine Expedia guest review
The housekeeping staff were pleasant than front desk. The tea coffee were cold even 7 amGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of things to do around the area."
The rooms and facility were clean. Disappointed that the pool closed at 9pm. By the time my family got back to the hotel from site seeing and doing other activities the pool was closed and of course the kids were very disappointed...Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was old and run down the lights in the bathroom did not work it was a smoking room but it smelled like it hasn't been clean in months this was not the type a hotel I am use to staying will never do this againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It worked well for my purpose"
The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and adequate. They are not large but we had 3 adults and it worked fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The directions were not very well. We drove all the way down past hotel into the scary intercity!!! When we didn't have too... The rooms are outdated and not very clean. We wore our flip flops in the shower. Also, the days inn asks u to save on the environment by re-using ur sheets & towels... Sheets I could understand if staying a day or two.. But […] our towels.. GROSS!! Made me wonder if we had clean linens to begin with. Thank god I brought a can of Lysol to spray everything down.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent experience (except the pool)"
The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Kate (front desk) is delightful and very accommodating! My only complaint is that the "heated" pool was too cold. My 15 month old son was shivering and crying both times we went swimming and that was really the only thing we were looking forward to doing in the hotel. It […] was expensive but we booked last minute and it was a holiday weekend. If you don't care to use the pool OR don't mind it cold then I would highly recommend staying at this hotel because everything else was excellent!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate accommodation, close to Vassar College."
We only stayed one night, in order to visit Vassar and the Culinary Institute nearby in Hyde Park. Clean, well lighted, strictly business class accommodation. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff, gave us directions for the morning. Complimentary continental breakfast, but nothing we were interested in except coffee and juice. Overall, just the better side […] of ordinary.

The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. The low price was a reflection of the run down neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quite an old hotel with minimal upgrades."
The first appearance in the lobby seemed fine but the room was very basic. It smelled of strong disinfectant, was noisey, and the bathroom was minimalistic. the star rating on Expedia was misleading it's more like a 2 star.Genuine Expedia guest review
A friend recommended this hotel as it was close and looked like it was clean. But when I got to the room the bad smell of smoke was so horrible I had to open all the windows and leave the room for 4 hrs. Left to get cleaning supplies because the room was disgusting, trash behind the bed, the floor was dingy n dirty, the bed sheets had stains and cigarette […] burns an holes. The furniture and everything was old and out of date. I went to clean the toilet and it over flowed.. I call the front desk and the guy tells me he couldn't leave the room that I had to get the plunger. I was completely dissatisfied with the hotel.. Too much expensive for the quality of it. Won't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a visit to Vassar"
The hotel is a Days Inn, so keep your expectations in check. BUT, the location is PERFECT (10 minute walk from Vassar main building, 5 minute walk to the edge of campus). The staff was very friendly. The room was clean. The place was quiet. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Highest recommendation.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here en route to Vermont and were pleased with the accommodations, including the included breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLOSE TO FUNERAL HM AND CEMETARY"
THE DESK CLERK WAS WONDERFUL.WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO HELP.THE ROOM WAS CLEAN BUT THERE WAS AN ODER IN THE ROOM.HOWEVER WE ADJUSTED TO IT AND WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN WHEN IN TOWN.JEANGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"second stay here this year"
We came to Poughkeepsie for a funeral 6 months ago and stayed at this hotel. We came back for another funeral and didnt want any other hotel. Great location, excellent service, great price. Wonderful place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We were upgraded to a Business Class room"
Our stay was better than expected due to the upgraded room. The Business Class room was inside the building(unlike the rooms outside which have a motel feel). The room was very clean and modern. The towels are so-so but it had a mini-fridge and microwave as well as a free bottle of water and microwave popcorn. The free breakfast was better than most. […] It had the usual stuff like coffee, cereal, muffins, yogurt, bagels, hard boiled eggs etc. Hot waffle maker was popular. Gym was small with only 1 treadmill and 1 eliptical but it did the trick. The indoor pool looked nice. Days Inn Business Class room had all the fixings of a 3 star hotel without the price tag. I would recommend highly, especially if you're visiting Vassar College which is a few blocks away. I didn't have any experience with the nearby restaurants (Pizzeria Uno is close) so can't comment. The area's fine but the hotel sits next to a busy throughway. You definitely want a car to get around (but you can walk to Vassar in warmer weather). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the only place open within 50 miles, so we had no choice.If you are in a band, and need a place to crash , then this would be ok. I would NOT bring any children her though.The staff was great, but the room was sketchy, not to mention the surrounding area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Despite issues due to Sandy, Days Inn was very accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Awful dirty hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great deal. Staff helped me find a great local play place for my 3 year old.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was clean and comfortable, the included breakfast was quite satisfactory, the location was perfect for the purposes that I needed it, the neighborhood was safe, and there were a handful of good restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect if your kid attends Vassar."
Only problem was they put me in a smoking two bed, nothing else available for my 3 night stay. Don't care for the smell of such rooms. It was well serviced however, secure, and the beds clean & good. Everything worked and locked correctly. I was OK with it after the first night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect stayover choice."
Great job. Easy check in, clean comfortable room. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Will return without shopping next visit to Poughkeepsie.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good enough for a weekend"
Room was clean & simple. Mattresses were hard/lumpy and really need to be replaced.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near Vassar"
The location of this hotel can't be beat. It is about 2-3 blocks away from the Vassar campus on Haight Street. The room itself was not bad, but a bit run-down. My suggestion to the hotel management would be to clean the carpets(remove stains) and repair broken light fixtures. That would improve the opinions of their guests. The room was clean, the staff […] were friendly, and the breakfast was good as far as continental breakfasts go. The location is what sells this hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

"Excellent value plus close to vassar"
When I read the reviews, I was very confused. Some were good, others bad. I still decided to try it because the rates were very reasonable. I was extremely pleased with everything, and would recommend it highly. However, I had the so-called business room, not sure of the other types of rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel a little out dated, but clean. Price was reasonable. Would stay there again when in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"as expected, neighborhood not great, lock your doo"
On a one way street that confused the gps, had to be creative to find the entrance, but otherwise, ok. Note that there is no elevator.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
