Very nice facilities. John was very helpful getting us settled on the docks. And free admission to the museum was a bonus. We,'ll be back next season.
Nice people and the museum is always worth the visit. Only issue with COVID the Boaters Welcome Center is closed so the showers and bathrooms are unavailable. Not a big deal and the dockage fee goes to a good cause.
Very nice and they don’t rob you, $2 a foot. Like the town too!
Easy access to slip but by the same token, absolutely no security. Nice girl from Museum came out to catch our lines, very nice of her. When I called yesterday, the guy on the phone might have mentioned he didn’t work on Sunday 🤡
Should only give 1 star so everyone doesn’t want to come here. Best place to stay in Kingston. 1st time visitors should take the time and visit the actual museum and check out the light house when they are running tours.
Only 3 because everything is still closed. We have been here before. The museum is great. Take the trolley out to the point. Would be a 5
Always a good stay at HRMM. The buildings wee closed because of wuhan flu. But we were able to dock and enjoy the boaters going by and people enjoying a walk along the Rondout creek. And many local eateries offered delivery.
The Hudson River Maritime Museum is one of our favorite destinations while we cruise the Hudson River! The museum is a great attraction in its own right and the Kingston riverfront community offers great dining and shopping opportunities.
Another enjoyable visit, our second. The tie-along-side floating pier is solid, well-maintained. The new restroom in the boat shop is available 24/7; current shower is "rustic" but clean, roomy (and a new shower will be on-line soon). Museum is a treasure! Bus makes uptown "Stockade" area easily accessible; lots of history there. Also a good base from which to rent a car to visit other nearby attractions like Hyde Park mansions.
Museum is worth a visit during your stay - the models are amazing. Part of facility is under construction and will vastly improve shoreside restrooms and showers. This will upgrade our rating. Dockmaster was very experienced and helpful - one of the few dock people that could actually cleat a line.
Nice spot. Great staff, very friendly. Museum is worth an hour or two visit. Clean facilities, shower was old, so plan to use your boat.
Nice stopping point, good facilities. Get to visit the museum as part of the cost - good museum. Restaurants nearby.
Great place to stay! Charector, charm....wonderful what there doing at the museum!
Great staff. Nice quite dock. Love it here
50A receptacle was too worn to hold the plug, so had to make do with a single 30A. Stubby posts instead of cleats on floating docks are difficult to use for tall boats - line angle risks pulling line up and off. Men's shower room could use an update. Otherwise, perfect location in town, and lots of interesting things to see in close proximity. Friendly staff.
The staff is excellent. Can’t wait to come back.
