Good Value and centrally located

I grew up in Poughkeepsie and this is my go-to place whenever I come back to town to visit. I usually fly into NY and rent a car. It's about a 90 minute drive from the airport, plus there are two 24 hour diners on the way to the hotel (one about a mile away, across from the Galleria Mall) so there is no rush to get here before everything closes. I like this place because it has amenities the other hotels in town don't have. On this trip I booked a room with spa tub and that was totally worth it. The tub was super clean - who isn't worried about that? Hampton Inn also has a pool and indoor hot tub, plus a gym. The business center is great for printing out my boarding pass. The room comes with a free breakfast, which is great, whenever the wife comes with me I serve her breakfast in bed - she likes that. It's right on Rt 9 so there are lots of places to meet people for dinner or lunch. A buffet place just opened nearby and another one is opening next door. Yup, this place makes the trip easy.
