I had concerns after reading the wide variety of reviews on Trip Advisor and hearing questioniable feedback on the Inn from locals. But my colleague was staying in Tarrytown & I decided I'd rather take the chance and stay a few minutes from where I neded to work rather than drive.... and I was very happy with my decision and accomodations on my Wed-Fri stay!
I specifically requested a newly renovated room as advised here, and was given Room 39 which is on the back side of the Inn with no balcony for $125/night. And I'll agree with what many folks said here: The room was a small, very basic room. But the room and bed was extremely clean & comfortable & was indeed renovated. The room also had a fridge and microwave which I was very happy to have for the growler I picked-up at the Peekskill Brewery. Also as a business traveler Internet is critical. While my wireless signal was weak, I didn't lose connectivity and streamed Netflix on my downtime. I've stayed at Hyatts that have let me down for this critical need. And although a little thing, compared to most hotels I could actually open a window for some fresh air if I wanted... something I personally like but don't often get to enjoy. I had quiet neighbors, but I can see the validity in people's complaints about thin walls if they had been noisy. Breakfast is offered, but is simple and limited to cereal, pastries, fruit, coffee, juices, milk, etc... so not a hearty meal but enough to get you on the go - which was fine for my needs and I took fruit to go for a mid-morning snack. Also seating for breakfast is limited to the three tables in the lobby so there could be instances where may have to take things back to the room or sit outside if the weather is nice. I didn't interact much with the folks at the desk, but I didn't need to except for check-in and check-out and they were pleasant folks. I'd definitely stay again for business or if I wanted to do a two day trip up the Hudson.
Regarding some of the negatives folks spoke of, I think some things need to be put into perspective: This is a motorcourt type inn, so small, simple accomodationss should be expected by folks considering staying here. It's situated close to and above Rt. 9 on the mountain, and is a half-mile from the train station with the rail line running along the river (maybe a quarter mile at it's closest), so you'll hear the traffic and train whistles as will the rest of Peekskill. I personally did not hear the highway from my room, and had no issues with the distant train whistle affecting my rest. Perhaps this is more of an issue with rooms 1-10 that are in the building on the front side of the property. Also as I mentioned up front I requested and got a newly renovated room so I didn't experience any of the conditions some others described. So for me as a business traveler it was perfect. For those using this as a launching point for day trips in the Hudson Valley it's great. I wouldn't recommend the In for those looking for a getaway for those hoping to stay put at the Inn and lounge for several days.
