The Overlook Lodge is something of an annex of the Bear Mountain Inn The downfalls of booking here are that the place hasn’t been updated in a very long time, there is one vending machine in the lobby that doesn’t have much, and is really expensive There was only one person on staff in the lobby on Friday until 11PM , and Saturday during the day

There is no elevator, so if that is an issue, ask to be placed in a first floor room The road leading to the lodge is almost impossible to get to on the first try, because it looks more like an access road, and the roads haven’t been paved since Rudy Guiliani was mayor of NYC Look out for potholes! The plus side is that there is a gorgeous view of Hessian Lake from the main balcony, and or from your room if you’re lucky to get one on that side The person that did staff the front desk was very friendly The rooms were very clean, and the beds were uncommonly comfortable for a hotel The heating system took a bit to get used to, but it’s better than the window units you’re used to seeing Any money they spent on upgrades must have gone towards the climate control They have a security layer in place that requires you to have room key to get into the lobby when there’s no one at the front desk This place blended into the nature surrounding it It felt isolated, but oddly safe If you’re expecting the hospital like ambience of a Hampton Inn, this isn’t the place to go It has way more charm than that, and a few less services

Steven V Z

The Overlook Lodge is horrible dump that is not maintained Stinks, chipped paint on the building door, and floor mats at the building entrance that’s permanently stained I paid $315/night for a bland room with a parking lot view

It was so bad, we left after the first night, cutting our trip short Avoid it at all costs You can visit the Bear Mountain State Park without staying in the Bear Mountain Inn/Overlook Lodge Worst option if you have a pet with you

Chris McAuliffe

Reserved a room in Beaver cabin It was a terrible experience The ac unit was not working and the room was very hot

The room also had quite a noticable odor The room was advertised to have a queen bed, but the bed in the room was a full The room was also very tiny The staff was gracious enough to let us check out early and provided a refund

The hotel is fairly easy to find; entrance is right along the highway The staff seems friendly and helpful enough And the rooms are fairly spacious and clean

A buffet style breakfast is also included But alas, this is where my compliments endEvery few seconds I could hear a roar outside my room’s window At first I thought they were jet airplanes rumbling down the runway for takeoff Then I realized that the noise was coming from the adjacent highway and the commercial trucks rolling down the highway and making this roaring noise I think the rooms need better soundproofing Next, when we stepped outside for the day and returned to our room later, we were shocked to find out that the add-a-lock on our room’s door, the one that can only be engaged when you’re inside your room for extra security at night, was engaged and there was no way for us to enter our room This was, to say the least, very perplexing and surprised us very much At first I thought we were at the wrong hotel room And after triple checking, we were positive that we were at the correct room So we had to go downstairs to the lobby and inform the receptionist that we needed help to get back into our room She immediately went into defensive mode and started blaming us that maybe we slammed the door, and that was the reason why the lock engaged itself First of all, we never slam our hotel door, no matter where we stay We’re very considerate of other people Second of all, if that were true that the door had been slammed, the receptionist should not even accuse us of that because the lock should never self engage with the slamming of a door Even though someone from maintenance came fairly quick to help us enter our room, the experience with that receptionist left a sour memory in my mindAlso, we requested a room near the elevator I’m blind and have a difficult time walking long distances to look for specific things like the elevator Our room was pretty far from the elevator And although I know that this kind of thing is based on availability, we did notice that people arrived the day after we did and were given rooms much closer to the elevatorThis next point may be a bit of a nitpick, but the buffet breakfast seems to be lacking in traditional breakfast meats I had scrambled eggs and some kind of sausage It wasn’t a traditional breakfast link, instead it tasted more like a sweet hot dog And no bacon either? There were cold cuts, but cold cuts for breakfast really aren’t my thing All this for nearly $460/night Really?! I couldn’t help but notice that we paid almost as much as one week in an all-inclusive Beach resort for only two nights in this hotel These are the reasons for my 3⭐ review We were in Newburgh for the wedding of a close friend, and drove nearly 4 hours So I’m not really sure if I would stay in this hotel again ☹️

Dave F

Friendly staff Decent sized 2x queen room Breakfast options were good

The main issue was the hot water for a shower was barely warm enough to not be cold while getting a shower Additional sound deadening would be good too We could hear regular volume conversations next door in our first floor room The noise from the second floor that night, well, only so much you can do about that

Shelley Jennings

The staff are friendly, professional and efficient The room and bathroom were spacious and very clean My one small criticism is that the shower flow is rather weak and the temperature of the water is tepid to cool

I like a hit shower and I couldn’t get the temperature warm enough to my satisfaction This is a relatively complaint This is a new hotel and everything is clean, and attractive The breakfast is okay You will find oatmeal, eggs, hash browns, mini-muffins, bagels, toast and chocolate or plain waffles that you make There’s an assortment of juices and teas as well as coffee I usually have yogurt, but I don’t like Yoplait I believe most people will find something to eat, just as I did

My family stayed here while attending a military honors funeral Just the history of the hotel makes it such an honor to be a guest The breakfast buffet is excellent

We had a room to celebrate with our group of classmates and the service was great Beautiful historic place The rooms are small but it’s location makes it easy to attend any event inside West Point Military Academy We will definitely be back and will recommend

Dave Decker

I stayed here during a road trip to the East Coast I really liked the historic, gorgeous building and grounds The room was very clean, large, and had great views of the Hudson

Accessing the place seems intimidating – going through a guard gate and all – but the hotel is well within walking distance to town The staff was very friendly (especially the valets – knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely professional), the food in the bar is great, and breakfast was good but (of course) expensive I’d return anytime

Erica Barnes

We stayed at the Thayer Hotel the beginning of May We absolutely adored the charm and history of The Thayer I felt like I was in Europe

The accommodations were great, they have a great fitness room and the staff was extremely nice and helpful (especially with us coming in so late after a 13 hour drive) Enjoyed eating at Zulu Time, but didn’t have enough time to try the other restaurants Will definitely stay there as much as we can over the next 4 years!

Elizabeth DeFronzo

Great hotel I was only a little concerned with the cleanliness of the room due to an unfresh odor and fingerprints on the doors lock I know during covid I stayed here and things were near perfect but this time I believe cleanliness may have been less of a priority

The front desk staff was wonderful and pool area was beautiful as well as landscaping around property The complimentary breakfast wasn’t something to complain about either! The man in charge of breakfast was on top of it and kept everything stocked and fresh regardless how busy breakfast was Over all the stay was great and if I could rate it a 45 I would have The beds were comfortable as always and I got a peaceful, restful (much needed) nights sleep Thankful to the staff for their hard work!

Diana Lopez

This hotel was wonderful, the stuff, the room, breakfast and the outside pool made our stay wonderfulWe had 2 rooms that connected which was perfect for our group The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was great with a variety of options

I would definitely stay again when I come back to lego land

Cameron Tylek

We found the room to be clean, comfortable, and quietThe outdoor pool was great for the kids, and the surrounding patio was convenient for eating take-out Complimentary breakfast had plenty of options including a waffle station that my kids really enjoyed

The room we chose had a comforting king bed with a comfortable pullout fullsize sofa bedThe room had a mini fridge, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, and hangersThe location is about 10 minutes from Legoland, and there was no traffic getting thereThere was another hotel option in the same area, but I can say I had no reason to dislike my stay here and I would book another trip here without question

This is perfectly located in a quiet place allowing to stay at a very reasonable price if you are visiting Legoland which is what we did to enjoy our trip on a budget Rooms were clean and stocked with essentials I noticed couple safety and security feature in the room

First they have option to close your peeping hole so no one can peep from outside Second they have a safety feature on door where a flat metal piece when unlatched can prevent anyone from accessing your room from outside Now we all know that hotel industry has been under tremendous pressure to be green and less waste One amenity in bathroom I noticed was a soap, shampoo and conditioner dispenser It’s great, you use what you want and no wastageJust like any other industry this place I believe is still struggling with some staffing or I would say they are adopting I needed extra towels which I got it but I have to go to front desk to get it No big deal Breakfast was fresh, wholesome and with plenty of healthy choice Overall I enjoyed my stay here with my family and I will highly recommend it

Erik Devereux

I had to make an emergency trip to the area because of a family medical emergency The front desk helped me get a great room at an affordable rate on the day I arrived The hotel is nearly brand new – very clean and modern

I loved my room, also clean and very new I enjoyed the free breakfast and the service staff were super friendly at all times My only minor quibble is that the construction of the bathtub/shower was not well executed and already is falling apart The hotel should inspect all the bathrooms for those construction defects and fix them right away I definitely will use this hotel again

Beebea H

My fiancé and I were visiting family in the area and booked this Holiday Inn Express, as did 8 other members of his familyTwo days before check in we wound up having to make some changes to our reservation due to expected inclement weather Kristen was very helpful getting the changes done

She was professional, but very friendly and made us feel reassuredAll of the staff were amazing Orlando checked us in quickly with a big smile, and he was able to accommodate my requests The room was CLEAN, spacious and well appointed The lobby area was kept very cleanWe were fortunate enough to be there the same time as a regional sales manager, Lori-Beth Holt She frequently checked on us to be sure everything exceeded our expectations, which it certainly did She was so lovely and sets a wonderful tone for this establishmentThe location was ideal for us, and it is just minutes away from many shopping areas and restaurantsI wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express

I put five stars for the front desk Meg and SamThe room was clean, spacious, and comfortable The room had a microwave, coffee maker, and fridge

I had room 233, which had a king size bed and showerThat specific room is very close to the elevator which was not ideal for my son and I for that peculiar trip We had to go to bed early because of having to wake up super early so I got waken up a couple of times by kids excitement in the hallway and their running Pick this room if you have a deep sleep

I had forgotten my wallet in the room after checking out the honest cleaning service people turned it to the front desk and they mailed it back to me this happened to me once before, but “they couldn’t find my items”I greatly appreciate their honesty and the effort they put in to return my belongings to me

will recommend this hotel and I will come back in the future

Not your average Red Roof Inn For starters, this was the absolute “BEST” Red Roof Inn I ever stayed in The staff was extremely nice, friendly, welcoming and helpful

The room was very clean The bed was comfortable The hotel offers coffee, tea & juice A to go bag is available for breakfast which has a muffin, bottle of water and granola bars The location was ideal Near the highway, shopping and restaurants Security is very good as far as needing your electronic key card to enter through side doors and your room I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to others The view from the front of the hotel is beautiful too (facing a lake) I travel a lot and if more Red Roof Inn’s we’re like this one, I’d stay with them more often A++

Fred Thompson

I’ve only spent one night, so far it serves my needs well It is clean and appears well kept It is hands down a major improvement over the Newburgh hotel and conference center

My bags were not moved across the room by roaches In fact I’ve not seen any thing crawling in the room Towels appear to be rather small but, I bring my own washcloths and towels It’s just oogies me out using someone else’s towels and washclothsOverall this Red Roof inn is leaps and bounds better than any Red Roof inn I’ve ever stayed at And you have anything you would need as far as food or groceries within a half mile This is a hidden gem!

David Jaeger

The hotel itself is clean and well managed The GM is very mindful and does their job well Dogs were also allowed at the hotel the last time I was there in June 2022

The rooms are nice and there is a lot of parking There isn’t a lot to do nearby but there are plenty of fast food spots nearby, a Walmart, and if you want a good meal there is a diner immediately in front of the hotel called Ikaros Diner that has great food and desserts

The room is very clean inside The price is nice, the room is spacious and comfortable Give your child plenty of room to move around

Upon arrival, (and throughout the day) Reggie & Jada at the front desk We’re extremely friendly and helpful They helped us out and gave us amazing service The room was really clean and the kids really enjoyed being at the pool

The rooms were really spacious, and we really appreciated the full size fridge and freezer We took advantage of the 24 hour free coffee We eat kosher, and we appreciated the few things you had with a kosher Symbol for breakfast We would definitely recommend this hotel

Alex Cuevas

I think this hotel could be a 4 or 5

great location Next to legoland and the mall which has some cool kid things to go do The service at the front desk was so so and I think needs some help My main complaint is that I felt the person was on edge and ready to engage in confrontation It did not feel welcoming and will likely affect my desire to return to this property in the futureIf the service concern gets addressed then the hotel should do great Pool is kind of small but good enough for the kids to enjoy

Gil Abir

The room is OK if rather basic, the service is as indifferent and uninterested as it gets They really don’t seem to care about their guests, which is a shameBreakfast was great, and the location is fine if being close to Woodbury is your priority

For a one night stay it works, no more than that

Celebrated my birthday with a stay at the Abbey Inn and Spa We arrived at the Spa for a wonderful couples massage The Spa was clean, welcoming and the services were fantastic

Everyone was friendly, helpful and warm Johnny took us under his wing to show us around, give us the history and he rang the Abbey bell for my birthday – made me feel so special The Apropos Restaurant food was amazing – roasted bone marrow with escargot (!!!), pistachio crusted lamb rack with pickled cherries (!!!!) Giselle at the bar and Johnnie as our server were fun, helpful and kind Thank you for a magical birthday celebration! PS did I mention the incredible Hudson River views and the beautiful spiritual energy all around?

We found this venue while searching for historical spaces for our Sunday brunch wedding local to us in Westchester NY The overhaul of the location was beautifully done and expertly refreshed without the team losing any of the charm or sacred historical relevance of the buildingFrom the onset, Gina Bonacci was highly responsive and accommodating to our questions and requests

Her attention to detail and thoroughness in planning out the day and surrounding timeline was highly appreciated She was very mindful of planning objectives and tracking everything of any significance Negotiations and contracts were easy to navigate and simple to understandOn the day prior to and of our Wedding, Gina served as the coordinator, timekeeper and utility player She was responsive and on top of everything we needed The entire staff was a pleasure to work with and accommodating Everyone from the hotel desk staff and cleaning team, servers, bartenders, valet and line cooks were all professional and courteousAnna and I could not recommend the venue or the team there more The day was beautiful, simple and elegant just as we were looking for The rooms were clean and well maintained and the food and drinks were fresh, tasty and well preparedWe look forward to anniversary meals, spa days and future events at the venue

Christine M. Lee

The hotel staff were pleasant enough and the grounds are lovely My husband and I have a few hiccups that were pretty inexcusable though This is mostly related to the spa

The spa staff are very disorganized and were confused when we arrived for our schedule appts Not a great start to a $360 massage The massage therapists were Tony and another man Although nice, both my husband and I agreed that our very expensive massages were basically an hour of heavy petting It was pretty much the worst massage I have ever had No pressure whatsoever, despite indicating nicely that they could use more pressure It seems they were both tired and didn’t want to expend any energy Ok I understand, but then we shouldn’t be charged over $420 (with the ‘suggested’ yet heavily implied gratuity by the front desk staff) for the worst massages we ever had I had to book a massage with my therapist in Manhattan just to feel satisfied Awful — do better or reduce your rates to $50 at best

I cannot express enough how much I loved staying at Bear Mountain Inn! My boyfriend and I planned a last minute trip here and from before we even booked the trip, Bear Mountain Inn was extremely helpful and accommodating Commuting from the city can be confusing and they were very helpful with instructions (if you’re planning on coming from NYC, use Coach USA! Drops you off right in front of the hotel) They also were kind enough to give us early check-in since our bus dropped us off so early! We stayed in one of the cottages and it was so clean and cozy

The resort itself has plenty to offer and is incredibly beautiful We did not go to the restaurant, but the front desk was kind enough to give us a list of places that deliver to the hotel which was so helpful Check-out is 11am, but our bus was not arriving until 5pm The front desk was beyond kind enough to let us leave our bags in the lobby so we could enjoy a few more hours of the resort I never write Google reviews, but I had to for the Inn Thank you Bear Mountain Inn for such an amazing experience!!!

Christian & Mari Coerds

We had a wonderful stay at Bear Mountain Inn It’s clean, beautiful, and rustic Truly an experience itself, with the beautiful lake to stroll around in the mornings, hikes galore

The rooms are beautiful, spacious and clean And, the customer service is amazing! They are very accommodating and generous The restaurant is really good too!


We stayed in room 304 Room was extremely clean, bathroom slightly outdated and worn, bed was comfy and room larger than expected Extremely helpful and friendly

Rather hard to sleep with air conditioner requiring major updating AC unit in room was very noisy, extremely cold when on then when off room got rather warm Hotel was pleasant inside, would recommend to stay during week as opposed to weekend to avoid large dirty crowds of people blasting music and leaving trash all over lake picnic area…that was disappointing and sad to see

What we liked: The staff was friendly, and the layout of the hotel was nice We enjoyed the outdoor seating during breakfast What we didn’t like: The floors were dirty

We do not like to where shoes in the room and found some red sticky substance all over our socks The room was vacuumed upon request, but this should not have occurred to begin with The furniture needs updating The mattress was too soft, as were the pillows The couch cushions were extremely worn down, they were sunken in before even sitting on them The air conditioner was loud and did not provide consistent temperature and the ceiling fan was also noisy The breakfast was standard, they did not provide fresh cooked eggs of your choice like some other Hiltons

I typically don’t take the time to leave reviews unless I’m impressed one way or the other I wasn’t impressed For a relatively new facility, it had some holes in the caulking around the shower

The first night we were there it seemed like the people in the room above us were going to come through the ceiling as they were walking/running/jumping/stomping up until about 11:00 pm I’ve never experienced a real earthquake before but now have an idea of what to expect if I do We were on the first floor near the front desk so they had to be aware of the circus in town on the second floor but apparently didn’t feel the need to do anything about it The refrigerator wasn’ t working and had to be swapped out on Day 2 The front desk personnel were perfunctory in their duties and it was obvious that they really didn’t want to be there The most helpful employees were the cleaning/maintenance staff They were pleasant and attentive to our needs and the only reason I gave a rating of 2 stars I know that I wasn’t booking a room at the Ritz-Carlton but I do have a basic level of expectation when I stay at a hotel I’ve stayed at Holiday Inn Express hotels in the past and have been satisfied with their staff, facilities and service, however, this one pales in comparison I can’t/won’t recommend it

Staff was friendly and very helpful during our five day stay They even provided a wheelchair to help get my great aunt to and from the room No request from the front desk was a bother and we had several (extra coffee pods, sewing kit, dish soap, toothbrush, quarters to wash, and I’m sure I’m forgetting something

) Rooms were space, comfortable, and clean My aunt mentioned multiple times how comfortable her bed was

Bee Gees

Rooms are very clean and nice The only problem we had was the toilet got clogged a few times on just liquid A very nice hotel overall

Some sketchy people in cars and a few cigarette-y smells in the hall sometimes but it’s a good choice if you’re looking to stay in this area They have a nice indoor pool and the bathroom smelled nice Nice service and they clean every 2 days A big fridge and they have a hot and cold breakfast
