Our stay at the Best Western Plus Hotel in Kingston, NY was comfortable. Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our room was clean and quiet. We love that the hotel allows dogs so that we can travel with our wonderful pups. Kingston is a very dog friendly city and it shows right down to our hotel stay.

This hotel has two major points in its favor. First, it's a pet-friendly establishment that takes cats as well as dogs. So, if you're looking to travel to the Catskills with your pet, it's a great choice. Second, it's in a great location. You are a 3-minute drive from uptown Kingston, including the Stockade District and the local shops and restaurants. More importantly, you are a short ride from most of the highlights of the region. You can easily visit Woodstock, Phoenicia, Kaaterskill Falls or the Ashokan Reservoir. Those two points make the Best Western a good choice. As for the hotel itself, the rooms are clean but a little run down. The beds are comfy. The staff is friendly.

I was sorry I took an express deal and got this hotel. I read some reviews that were negative. When we arrived and went to our room , it had not been cleaned or made up from the previous people. In the time of Covid, I thought this was horrifying and we backed out of the room asap. We went to the desk and were assigned another room. The desk chit fabric was torn and coming off, the carpeting on the floor was so sticky when walking I did not want my bare feet touching it. The shower drain was pulled out for some reason leaving a gaping hole. The worst was that a party was going on above us starting at 6:30pm. I started calling the front desk at 1am and it did not stop until 2:30am. There was music, loud thumps on the floor that shook our room, and we could hear everything being said, meaning the floors are thin. SUPER disappointing money spent on a night with 4 hours of sleep.

Wanted to get out of the City and enjoy sun and nature. We had a very nice stay in Kingston. Play golf, swam and relaxed. Perfect location for getting around the Catskills and it's very clean and pet friendly. The breakfast and pool were a nice bonus. Great for kids and adults alike. Would have given 5 if we got a room with a better view. Overall a clean, nice stay at a great rate.
