I lived in Rhinebeck for years and to find an affordable place that is close to town is really hard. This "inn" is not the Ritz Carlton by any means but rooms are big, they allow pets and have a huge side yard to let them run and the staff is very accomating. It is so close to town you can't beat it for the price!
When we drove up to the Village Inn, it looked very sweet and nice and had plants hanging outside, in other words, esthetically appealing. Because i cleaned houses for a long time, i'm much more sensitive to the cleanliness of my environment. i started getting a little concerned when the small office, or check in place looked pretty dirty. Our room was equally dirty w/ cobwebs all over the ceiling,and spiders, quite a lot of dust. Over one of the beds, (we had a double bed room for $100), was a hanging lamp which looked like it had never been dusted, the same w/ the wall lamp and the other bed. Just a lot of dust and a dirty feeling. The manager was not at all apologetic. It's too bad because the place has a safe, beautiful, solid-feeling energy and the room itself was a nice room to look at.
My wife & I love Rhinebeck, & every time we're planning a trip there, I always do my reasearch on the 'net. The Whistlewood Farm id v. appealing, among other nice places, & we may try it 1 of these years, but in the end we always opt for the Village Inn. The location is great: about 0.6 miles south of town on Rte. 9. This enables us to park the car, & walk to Rhinebeck, thus maintaining a little bit of physical activity while enjoying some fine food at places like "Calico" & "Terrapin".
The bds are hard, which is good for human spines, & the ACs are nice & powerful. The place is quiet & clean, & thus it is a deal that's hard to beat.
The morning jiuce, coffe & odd pastry helps to get us going for a nice a.m. walk to town. The mini fridge in the room is convenient, & I'm not sure if it has wireless internet - it'd be great if it did. Perhaps breakfast could be a bit more elaborate, but that's a detail. The Villag Inn is a good deal overall, & herd to beat.
This is a great place to stay. It looks nice and quiet, and it is !! It is VERY close to town, but not IN town. It's not The Ritz Carlton, but for $59 it's certainly much better than the alternatives such as Motel 6, etc. The rooms are very nicely decorated. With the refrigerator, we always order big at dinner and bring back a doggy bag fo the next day....stopping at a supermarket for salads and other things. Thsi saves time and money which we spend on seeing the sights and mansions in the Hyde Park and other areas. The free coffee, juice, and danish are enough to get us going in the morning. We've stayed here year after year, and always look forward to coming back. Rusty Birman
