Upon arrival to the hotel there were about eight guys or more drinking cheap (b-light) beer out on the benches in front of the main entrance. This continued for at least a few hours until we went back to our room after dinner. Not really their fault since there was no other outdoor space in which to congregate. And not really the hotel's fault since they didn't have much control over it. Either way, not exactly the first thing you want to see when you are checking in.
When I walked up to the desk to check in there was nobody there. I noticed a couple employees standing outside talking, one of them was enjoying a cigarette. It took a minute or so before one of them came back in to the desk and the young man greeted me with "whats going on". I'm young-ish and would like to think I'm a cool guy, but this is still not the level of professional courtesy I expect from a major hotel chain. I could say more, but that speaks enough in the way of his customer service for the rest of the experience. It was nice that you could tell when he was working though, since he always parked in the one spot closest to the door.
The room itself was decent. You could tell it had been fairly recently renovated. But there were already problems developing in the bathroom from too much moisture and not enough ventilation. It will only be a matter of time before it needs serious maintenance attention. Apart from that the room was tastefully decorated and modern. Free wifi was nice although it seemed to cut out a lot so you had to keep reconnecting.
The bed was average. It seemed clean, but the pillows were pretty flat, and the protective mattress cover made a lot of squeaky noise when you moved around. The mattress itself was comfortable.
Breakfast was decent. The eggs were pretty terrible, but most other things seemed up to par with a hotel breakfast. The automatic pancake machine was a nice touch and tasted good.
The pool and hot tub area was nice, and one of the reasons we chose to stay here. Except for the fact that there were a couple of creepy guys lingering outside and staring directly at the women and two year old child we were with. So that took away a little bit from the pool experience. At least they did not appear to be hotel employees.
Overall I would give the experience a 6.0 out of 10.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EAMD Clean, comfortable bedroom, small awkward bathroom
I stayed for one night with my three children. The hotel was clean and new and the bedroom was comfortable, though a bit on the small side, but the bathroom was really uncomfortable. The sink was inside the bathroom diagonal in the corner - only suitable for one person. Tiny counter space. Two people could not even stand next to each other and see in the mirror. The counter was also very high - not usable for children trying to brush their teeth. Though the room has 2 queens - I would not recommend it for more than 2 people because of the bathroom, and not for younger children.

If possible, we stay at Holiday Inn Express' each time we travel. This particulat HI was in excellent condition. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast had it all, with pancakes, yogert, cereal varities, hot coffee, etc. It was a great experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shirleythetraveler Physically a nice hotel but...
The hotel itself and stafff were good. However, may, may children with a lot of noice. They filled the pool and ran up and down the hallway playing hid&go seek till 11:30 PM. Finally, someone, definately not the parents, came out of their room and told them it is 11:30 and to stop. A guest should not be the policemen for a hotel. Plus maybe it was just sumertime and a lot of people on the road, but there seemed to be quite a few guests that were just plain rude. Be it cutting in line at breakfast, loud in the hallways or not letting people exit the elevator before the jumped in.

We plan on making this a regular stop on our frequent trips to New England from Pennsylvania. On our first, visit so far, we found the hotel to be extremely clean, the staff to be courteous and the breakfast to offer a nice variety. In addition, the hotel was fairly priced and easily accessible from Route 84.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ginnie Poor quality of a room
I have never paid as much as I did for this room in a Holiday Inn Express Line. This was way OVER PRICED....the room was very small...cluttered with furniture and the bathroom was very small also...with dust webs or spider webs hanging from ceiling ...the tub was stopped up and couldn't get it opened...the door to room would not close automatically had to make sure by pulling it shut. The worse night ever in a HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS...hope new management will take over this one or is it really PRIVATELY OWNED as the guy at the desk said? How can that be and still carry Holiday Inn Express name? ...but I will not waste my time on using this hotel on my return trip home

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pdrb1111 Fishkill HIX
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express (HIX) in Fishkill while on vacation with plans to hike at Bear Mountain State Park. So the primary reason we picked this hotel was its proximity to the stare park. Upon check in the front desk was manned by Samantha. She was very friendly, smiled and professional. The morning staff on the otherhand was the complete opposite. I had to wait for the two at the first desk to stop a personal conversation before they acknowledged my presence. When the did, one did not even look up. The breakfast attendent did not greet, smile or acknowledge our presence. I definitely recommend Customer Service Training for the front desk staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jim4 Comfort without Stress
This hotel exceeded our expectations in all areas. Easy access from I-84, good restaurants within walking distance (enjoyed the Red Line Diner), shopping closeby, and wonderfully appointed room. Even toothpaste in the bathroom. After a stressful day on the road, we appreciated this opportunity to relax and unwind.
Breakfast was the usual, nutritionally dead zone. Skipped it!

This was my 1st. stay here, with all the hotels in the area I was surprised it was more expensive than most.
I do enjoy the HIE experience and really didn't mind the extra cash flowing out of my pocket...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Salient Good Experience
Check-In was smooth. I was recognized for my priority Club status and given a selection of snacks which was appreciated. This HIE is a smaller design than most with the lobby also serving as the breakfast area. The rooms are small but well appointed with microwave,sofa and desk. Room looked and smelled clean. Jose at the front desk was very helpful and granted my request for a late check out afforded by my platinum status. This was appreciated as it allowed me to finish some reports for work. I would gladly recommend this hotel to anyone in town the Poughkeepsie area on business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 great great great ... yeah great.
excellent hotel with just the right amount of care ans awareness by staff. just stayed for weekend and i was able to relax and enjoy my time away from the kids.
the pool seems new, and was on the smaller side, but was well kept and dun with the outdoor sliding wall thing!
breakfast was above average and we just loved the pancakes! The rooms were immaculate and I made a point to let the front desk know that these rooms were spotless.
Will definitely return, hopefully without the kids again!

This Holiday Inn Express is very easy to access and close to a variety of shops & restaurants. Very easy highway access and has plenty of parking. Beds are comfortable and the rooms (although dated) are quiet and well kept. At the time of my stay some of the facilities (i.e. pool) where under repair. Simple no frills hotel great for short stays. For long term stays find a Crowne Plaza!

I had a change in travel plans do to bad weather was unable to cancel my reservation..I did not realize this Holiday Inn you had to cancel 24 hours prior most Holiday Inn's that I stay at you can cancel up until 6 pm day of arrival.....I ended up staying for few hours then checked out...overall the room was very nice and cozy....I would recommend it, but if you have a change in travel plans you will be out $$ or they will give a voucher for another night.
