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.

... turn and no exits for 12 miles. Finally found a truck stop, Fray asked for help, we found a shortcut but it took 1.5hrs to get home & it was completely dark & raining the whole way. Sooo stressful. Took the shine off an otherwise great day. Didn't feel like driving anymore so walked to dinner at the Italian restaurant next door again. The photos on Insta show the ridiculous pizza we got (thought sharing a meal would reduce the waste). Wine ...
... decided to have lunch in Poughkeepsie. I asked google maps to take us to Poughkeepsie & we ended up in a quiet street near "Main Street". We parked the car & went in search of food. On reaching Main Street we quickly noticed a couple of issues: only 1 in 6 shops were open, there were signs saying 'No Loitering' & most significantly, we were the only white people. There weren't many people on the street but the people that were there were watching us so we didn't think ...
... on the climb. Phew! We were able to get our gear back (Took me awhile to fennagle the nuts from the crack...they were SOOOO well placed!!! Nice job Ben!), and made good time on the 3-pitch climb.
I did a lot of positive self-talk, staying aware of my breathing, and focused on trusting my feet, the gear and my climbing partner. I did have a few moments of fear, but I was able to keep the fears in check with rationalizing and as I continued to climb higher ...
After our tour of Lindenwald, Martin Van Buren's home, we continued south to Olana, the home of Frederic Church of the Hudson River School of painters. It was rather cold and blustery so we sought refuge in the museum/office where I ran into Adrienne and Sharon of the Red Rock Circle. Vesna had tentatively ...
... people, such as Winston Churchill, were guests here and I think the tour guide said that he may have stayed in the pink room.
I think everyone on our tour was also rather dismayed when Eleanor's room was pointed out. Since Franklin's mother lived in the family home, Eleanor was not the woman in charge. And when Franklin's manservant was given the room adjoining Franklin's, Eleanor got another little room. This part confused me because ...
