Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Witch39 Tiny Bathroom
Great location and room very comfortable; but bathroom is rather tiny and cramped -counter space small. Tissue holder is mounted right next to stool and can easily be splattered. More sanitary location would be on the opposite side of the sink counter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuvVancouver Great hotel with great staff!
I stayed here with friends on the way to NYC. The hotel staff were welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is very well kept. The dining area for breakfast was very nice and included an outdoor patio. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mindy from Maryland Convenient and great accommodations while attending son's graduation from the Culinary Institute of America
My son just graduated from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) on July 25th and so we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Poughkeepsie, NY. It's about a 9 mile straight drive to CIA, which is convenient if visiting the campus of CIA or the other local colleges. The suite we reserved allowed us to also share the accommodations with our daughter and her husband. It had a private bedroom with a pull-out couch. The large, step-up Jacuzzi tub was a pleasant surprise. I just wished we were staying longer than one night to enjoy the amenities. The bathroom was separate from the shower and Jacuzzi, which was perfect for 4 adults trying to get ready for an early morning graduation. The hotel was clean and quiet, despite over 150 teens attending a chorus performance. Maybe the kids were all just well behaved since there were no sounds from the kids. The only "disadvantage" was breakfast with so many teens in the breakfast area. However, they were polite enough to allow my family to grab something quick since we were running to the graduation. Overall, I definitely would recommend this property!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by prcrew Great Property for 4 Day Leisure Stay
Had everything that you expect from HIE... Great breakfast with decent food choices, especially the fresh pancake maker! As a IHG member I appreciated the fast and dependable WiFi Internet access throughout the hotel and in my room.
The area also has a lot of places nearby for dinner and/or entertainment and there is a large Shopping Mall a 15 minute drive from the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lindavid Great facility
As first timers to NYC, we stayed in Poughkeepsie and took the train to NYC. Probably should have stayed a little closer to NYC, but regardless this property truly was a relaxing place. The grandkids were a little disappointed that the pool closed at 8, felt it could have stayed open until 9, at least. I was also surprised with the laundry room closing at 8pm. But I did appreciate that the laundry room was spotless. Overall a very nice facility.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kenoodle Good value
As a first-time Holiday Inn Express customer, I was surprised that the room was a comfortable size and nicely appointed, if a bit "outdated". It was spotlessly clean. The only minor downsides were... the cold water temperature never got below lukewarm, the exhaust system wasn't working in the bathroom so steam took a long time to clear, and the mattress was good, but not up to the "I wanna get one of these" mattresses of most of the other chains.
Staff were great, and the overall experience was surprisingly good. Can't understand why the smarmy TV comedian references.

We found the Holiday Inn Express very convenient to a number of interesting attractions we went to the Hudson Valley to visit. The hotel staff was very helpful in their suggestions of things to see and do as well as places to eat. Location was quiet and convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miggi Just an overnite stay!
Went to the culinary Institute of America & needed a one nite stay. Well to our surprise we had an amazing time. The pool was open so we had a lovely place to relax outside. The morning breakfast was far more than "continental" we were stunned at the array to choose from.. If you ever attend any event in the area do yourself a favor & stay at this Holiday Inn Express ! !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nightfire79 Older Hotel in need of attention and rehab
The review is mixed for me.. The hotel offers great location and convenience to the metro north station and downtown Poughkeepsie. The lady who checked me in was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Kudos to her. That's where the good stuff ends. The hotel's internet is atrocious.. spotty coverage and very very very slow. The rooms are pretty clean but super dated looked like the last time they saw some love was over a decade ago. Had a ton of problems with the door locks either in the room or the rear door. I was not alone in this as I witnessed several other people have the exact same issue. The rear door would let you in with the key and then go to your room and presto it did not work very very frustrating especially when on the top floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A good place to stay in Poughkeepsie
I was pleased with everything. The room was clean and in good condition. A few very minor details: I did not see a Welcome folder and there was no Kleenex tissue box, but I had brought my own. Also, the lamp near the door was burnt out.
The staff was friendly and efficient. The free breakfast was varied and of good quality.
The rate was somewhat high, but this was in line with the specific date (Vassar College Reunion and proximity to the campus).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable Three-Day Stay
This hotel generally met my expectations and was relatively quite and convenient to area attractions. For those using a GPS device, it would be convenient if hotel were to list an address for Sharon Drive, where entrance is placed. The South Road address, which I am sure is accurate, does not offer an entrance and caused my GPS to unnecessarily lead me around the block upon first arriving.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SAde Book - here it was wonderful
We had a great experience with the HIE. The staff were welcoming and helped find a room with a King bed although they were sold out for months with this option. Staff helped print driving directions for us. All was really great...especially 12 pm checkout on Sunday giving the extra time to relax. Just check about the hot water taking a few minutes to kick in. Not an issue just be aware.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jelliepair Shower issue
We had a lovely room at the Holiday Inn Express Poughkeepsie - it was a King Suite with a giant bathroom including a jacuzzi tub and shower. The issue was that the shower temperature could not be controlled. It was either scalding hot or ice cold. The staff was very kind and twice attempted to fix the temperature issue but during our two night stay, were unable to do so. They eventually comped us one nights stay which we were grateful for but it would have been nice to have had an opportunity to take a shower while we were in town for a funeral. The staff was very accommodating but am hopeful they will fix this issue before the next guest gets that room.

Stayed for 4 nights and could'nt ask for anything more! The staff helped meet out needs, and very, friendly. Ex- when we needed more hangers or towels, or a later check out because husband was late returning, they made it happened. We will stay again!! Awesome job especially while the hotel was sold out for 3 different graduations!!

We were weary travelers when we pulled in and it was great to have a very comfortable room. Loved having the fridge and microwave and the bed was amazing!
Front desk staff was very helpful in suggested a close-by restaurant that was perfect for our needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valley Rose Warm welcome
Assuming the basics are provided and that nothing awful happens during a hotel stay, what sets a property apart for me is the welcome I receive from the front desk staff. After a whole day on the road, arriving to a friendly, personal greeting from Ali was great. We received restaurant recommendations and a suggestion to visit Walkway Over the Hudson State Park. What a great way to start our day the next morning. We'd have missed it otherwise. This was our first visit to the Hudson Valley; we'd love to visit Poughkeepsie again.
