The Alexander Hamilton House is a comfortable place to stay. It is located on a neighborhood street in the center of Croton on Hudson. It was very easy to get to as well as only a walk away from town. The train station is not that far away from the Inn, if you wanted to do a day trip into NYC. It has a very homey feel to it. The Inn has a Victorian flare to it. The main area is very spacious. There are a number of rooms to choose to sit in on the first level. There is a very large sunroom that serves as a dining area. At one end of the sun room there is a large tv area with a leather couch that is quite comfortable.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable. the Victorian room overlooks the pool and has a nice fireplace in it. The bathroom is in this room and was quite clean. This bathroom has a shower stall and no tub. The shower head was a bit of a disappointment. The water did not flow out of it all that well. You could however, have a decent shower.
The breakfast that was served each day was wonderful. It came out hot and there was plenty to eat. There is also muffins, cereal and fresh fruit and yogurt available with breakfast. Plenty of coffee and tea along with juices as well.
The pool area was comfortable and clean. The pool was a comfortable temp to swim in. The rim of the pool needed a bit of new paint but, it was nice nonetheless. It is very quite in the pool area and I had no problem falling asleep on a comfortable lawn chair.:)
I found the Inn Keeper Tom very nice and very helpful. He had lots of suggestions on dinner places and things to do. I felt very safe at this Inn. While it was very quite, I knew that the Inn Keeper was somewhere in the house.
I Would say that if you are looking for a state of the art and new hotel or inn this wouldn't be a place for you. If you like local businesses and small quaint places, I would say that this fits the criteria.
I would stay here again. I had a wonderful experience and felt right at home.
