The original and main Beekman Arms housing is historic and lovely. I stayed there many years ago and was impressed and had a great stay at the Inn. This time a girlfriend and I decided to drive up from New York City and stay overnight. It wasn't until after the reservation was confirmed that it stated the room we were assigned was a "motel style room". I called to get clarification but already suspected it was NOT going to be a room in the main building. Instead it was in a guest house, situated away from the main building and just beyond the parking lot, separated by a lattice fencing. The quality of the room was not even the calibre of a Holiday Inn. Somewhat shabby with old uncoordinated pieces of furniture, a nondescript bare-bones bathroom. It looked like the construction and furnishing was thrown together with no thought to aesthetics. It was just one night and we managed, but I wouldn't stay there again, nor would I ever recommend the lower priced room (just under $300 per night) to anyone I know. There are other chain hotels/motels in the area. THAT SAID, the tavern and restaurant of the Beekman Arms were great. We had a very excellent dinner there. However, the free continental breakfast the next morning required a four block walk to another building called Delamater House. Research and plan carefully.
