BC and Larry were extremely helpful. They met us off the bus from Poughkeepsie, and took us to the Hannaford supermarket to catch the bus back. They also gave us very good advice on where to eat nearby

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We are pleased to have made your short visit in Kingston enjoyable. Of course, we made an extra effort to pick you up and bring you to the inn. We knew there was very little chance of getting a taxi to our inn from the Midtown bus stop where the Poughkeepsie Bus left you. On such a hot day, we could not in good conscience leave you to walk the almost 2 miles or worse, to leave you stranded. We are sorry we did not meet your value expectations. Other guests have felt our rates were very reasonable for a full apartment.


Outstanding

5 on July 06, 2015

This little apartment was so perfect we didn't want to leave! It was immaculate and had everything you could ever want or need to make your stay comfortable. There were guide books and other nice touches that made you feel special. It is literally a few minutes walk down to the river and the many bars and restaurants are all on the doorstep, even though it was so peaceful we slept really well. Plenty of on street free parking and so much to do we didn't have time to fit everything in! We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely place and the very kind and helpful hosts, BC & Larry, to everyone.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks very much for the 5 star review. We're very happy you noticed the effort we put into making our apartments comfortable, efficient and special. Your well-thought out comments encourage us to constantly improve!

Great Weekend Getaway

5 on April 25, 2015

My boyfriend and I recently spent a truly wonderful weekend at the Roundout Inn in Kingston, NY. This is a great place to go when you are looking for a perfect spot to relax. The accommodations couldn't have been better - we received a warm welcome from one of the owners, who gave us lots of useful information regarding places to visit in the neighborhood. The apartment itself feels like a 'home away from home' - there is a bakery right next door with great home made pastries and delicious latte. Several excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance. We tried a different place every night and had a great dining experience each time. All in all we highly recommend the Roundout Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay here and especially our recommendation of the fabulous made-from-scratch baked goods next door (yumm). Fortunately we are able to offer guests a memorable visit with great restaurants, museums and shops in the neighborhood. Hope to see you again in the summer when the waterfront is really hopping!


Nice Alternative to a Hotel

3.6 on November 29, 2014

This inn is very clean and comfortable, and in a great neighborhood. It's roomy, with a full kitchen. Our only complaints: we were given a different suite than the one we had reserved and were confirmed for, which was a bit disappointing since I preferred how it looked in the website photos. And, since the owners live a half hour away, we needed to coordinate our arrival time, which turned out to be later than I had predicted, especially after we'd gotten stuck in traffic. I kept them updated about our timing, but they seemed somewhat annoyed because our delay held up their own plans for the evening. Guests shouldn't have to be concerned about this- it's hard to know just when you'll get somewhere when you are traveling; you get there when you get there. Once we arrived, though, BT was very friendly, warm, and helpful regarding neighborhood dining options.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry you were disappointed you didn't get your requested suite but as we explained, a sudden two month rental forced us to make the change. We did appreciate you keeping us updated on your arrival time but we were very disappointed that our special anniversary dinner had to be cancelled. BC made a special effort to be here to welcome you into the suite. Hopefully your stay here was enjoyable and full of pleasant memories.


Great stay at Rondout Inn

5 on October 21, 2014

We stayed 3 nights at the Rondout Inn. Our stay was wonderful. The location was great, close to everything, and in nice area with great restaurants. The suite was well-designed, very clean, and very comfortable. The attention to detail was great. Everything we could possible need was provided. The furnishings were a nice mix of antiques and new items, beautifully placed in the rooms. The sheets and comforters on the bed were new and luxurious. BC and Larry are great hosts. We would definitely recommend staying at the Rondout Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the great review. We are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve and make our apartments as comfortable as possible. It's especially nice when it's noticed. Thanks again!


Something in between

4.6 on July 26, 2014

This inn is more than a hotel or motel and, at the same time, better than a B & B (although no breakfast) because of what you get for the price you pay. We only stayed one night but we can see, upon another visit to the area, a multi-night stay. There are all the comforts of home at a hotel/motel or B&B price. All in all, a fine place to stay. There is no dining associated with this inn and that is why the Dining section of our review gets a 3 star.


Great place to stay

5 on April 30, 2014

Our room was immaculate and very tastefully furnished. Lots of info on local attractions was provided in the room. Very convenient location for walking to the many excellent restaurants and to the river.

Innkeeper Response
You're welcome. We love to share all the great things to do and see in this area. To that end, we put a lot of effort maintaining a jumbo book full of brochures, maps and articles of what's around. Feel free to come back to see what happens all year round.


A wonderful find

5 on April 30, 2014

Well appointed and quiet apartment like suite near the historic waterfront in Kingston. Friendly owners, simple check-in and checkout and everything (including fine restaurants) within walking distance. An added touch was that information about transportation, points of interest and menus were readily available in the suite. Perfect place for a weekend stay with a touch of class.


A lot of room for your stay

4.2 on December 27, 2013

The rooms at Rondout Inn are really like small well-appointed apartments. We stayed only one night but it would be the ideal place to make your base for a longer stay when exploring Kingston and the Hudson Valley. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and having your own kitchen makes it more affordable.
