Historical Traveler Reviews Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn Rhinebeck
I was extremely disappointed with the room. It was not cozy or charming. It felt like a roadside hotel room with a fireplace. The grounds were pretty and the town was charming, but the courtyard rooms were not what we expected. The check in building- the Beekman Arms- seemed to have much more potential. We were just very disappointed about what we got for the rate we paid.
Liked it a lot
I can't believe the rotten reviews this B&B has received. We loved it. The room was very cute. It was spacious, graciously decorated and warmly appealing. On this warm day in August the room air conditioner worked very efficiently. The breakfast was so-so but it is only advertised as a continental breakfast.
HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY!!! Extremely rude staff!!
HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY!!!
Staff was down right rude! unhelpful, and stuck up.
Our nearly $200 a night room was located in front of an enormous air conditioner that went on and off all night! We were unable to change our room according to the staff.
We were extremely disappointed with our stay we wrote a letter of complaint and vowed never to return.
Perfect location & charm
I used to live in the rhinebeck area; I am a graduate of the CIA. When I returned to the area to get married, I stayed here with all my family and friends and my two dogs! I have never stayed at such a lovely hotel (it's not a B&B - it's too large) that catered to pets. So, the breakfast is poor - go out in the town for a walk. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the location is in the center of rhinebeck. I love it.
The Beekman Arms was a sheer disppointment. The staf was incredibly unfriendly and non-helpful. The lights/electric went out in our Gables room only by using the hair dryer. We notified the staff of the issue and they truly made us feel like we did something wrong. For $250.00 plus for a weekend, one would expect more than what we experienced not to mention the boxed cake continental breakfast.
We recently returned for our second trip to the Beekman Arms. Our perfect little getaway ended on a very sad note. Someone on the staff stole a very expensive pair of my wifes pants from our room!! We are currently trying to resolve the issue with management, so we will keep you updated.
We took care of this incident within a couple of weeks of the report.
It is the policy of the Inn when guest leave items behind that we will mail them back as a
Courtesy to our guest, at the expense of the hotel.
Not a cozy B&B - leaves a lot to be desired.
Not a cozy B&B like we expected. The breakfast was definitely not the same standard as other B&B's that we hav stayed at - the coffee cake was out of a grocery store box, stale cereal, etc. The location is the only good part.
The Beekman Arms fell way below our expectations-we did not feel we were having a "special getaway":
Staff was neither welcoming nor helpful. Very basic complimentary continental breakfast. Noisy room with low ceiling Located on main street of Rhinebeck village No tea/coffee with cookies in afternoon No bed turndown with a treat No boardgames Slow checkout process (no pre-printing of bill)
Delamater Inn/Beekman Arms
Stayed 1 night at the Delamater. Room looked nice, but wasn't. Air conditioner was extremely loud and not very cool, water dripped, bed wasn't comfortable, several light bulbs were burnt out, breakfast was very poor. Poor attitude. The nice part was the dinner at the inn. It was superb. Advice, eat dinner, but don't sleep there. The inn and the restaurant are run as 2 separate businesses.
Great little village
So much to see and do and so picturesque. Stayed at Beekman Arms ancillary motel (we are not the B&B types, do not like old&creaky, but the restaurant there is top notch) must see home of FDR and you must eat at CIA - have tried both the American Bounty and Katerina Di Medici - the "Eveready Diner" on Route 9 in Hyde Park just below Rhinebeck was great for more casual fare - really very good food and varied menu. Also visited Storm King Art Center - try to go on a day when there are tours - hard to walk this as it is so large but very impressive - great Calders; took a boat ride from Kingston on the Hudson - scenery is fabulous, on way back to NYC or PHILA, do not miss Kykuit - Rockefeller estate, also, take the scenic drive around Bear Mountain and West Point for great views and some pullovers on the road of the majestic Hudson. Vanderbilt Mansion is good to visit also. We toured Montgomery Mansion also - lovely grounds but could miss this one if you are pressed for time. Village of Rhinebeck has great little ice cream parlors and retro-feel comfort food restaurants. Fun time for all ages.

... for $200,000 unsuccessfully and later sold it for $1.00 to the National Parks!
In the afternoon we drove to the historic town, Saugerties and walked to the beautiful lighthouse. Lunch on a balcony over the falls and then home again to relax and recharge for the next ...
We woke up to yet another beautiful day. We drove to Hyde Park and toured President Franklin Delano Roosevelts home and library. What an amazing man! Firstly, he is the only four term president and secondly, he was paralysed from the waist down for his entire presidency, as he contracted polio at the age of 39. His car was modified for hand controls and he greetd people in his study sitting or in his ver heavy leg irons leaning on a staff member. ...
... wait another few hours for him to finish. I've done it numerous times before (and will again, no doubt) but I enjoyed being able to delight in a few more hours at the cottage with nothing to do and nowhere to be.
After packing up the cars & the pups, we headed to Kingston, NY for lunch. It's not much of a town, but they do have a nice little ...
Quick jaunt into Woodstock--"quick" being the operative word here. We found a supposedly dog-friendly spot online (Bringfido.com) but was told upon arrival that only service dogs were allowed. Debbie Downer. They did, however have an outdoor picnic table where the happy hour crowd usually congregates so we decided to order at the bar and dine there instead. Our food arrived and we commenced to eating until ...
... 214, a farm to table gastropub about five minutes up the road. May I say, THE BEST lobster mac and cheese I've ever had. After that, along with the parmesan truffle fries, I surely gained 5 lbs on the spot. (That didn't, however, stop me from ordering ice cream later on.) We enjoyed a nice digestif and decided to drive to nearby Tannersville to stroll down Main St. with the pups and enjoy the evening air. We stopped at Mama's Boy on the main drag and bought scoops ...
