I'm hiking a section through this area next month, and Fort Montgomery looks like a reasonable town night for me. Does anybody have any insight into whether The Inn at Bear Mountain or the Bear Mountain Bridge Motel would be a better place to spend a night? Is there someplace even better that I am missing? Any input is welcome, thanks.

Rooms at the Inn are in the $200 range, but I'm sure you'd enjoy it.

The cabins run by the Bear Mountain Lodge are much more reasonable, though I canít remember what I paid. They are a short walk from the main inn.

If you stay here, youíll still have access to the included fabulous breakfast in the morning.

Haven't stayed at the Bear Mountain Bridge Motel myself, but have dropped off hikers there and shuttled other hikers who have. It is the cutest small well-kept motel i have ever seen. Hikers have only good things to say, especially about the folks that run the place. Clean, well-kept and 'Grandpa' is generally available to shuttle hikers to/from the trail. Also drives hikers into 'town' (couple miles north to Highland Falls) for laundry/food...not sure if that is always available. They are very hiker friendly, so just ask!

There is also a Holiday Inn Express in that area, almost right across the street from the motel.

Have stayed here

and found it to be just fine. It's business oriented and does not cater to hikers, but they do allow them to stay.
