This was the only place we could get a room for work at the time, we switched hotels after one night. Its just an older place that needs some TLC. Its in a convienent location right on the highway so for passerbys its a good place to stop.

Front desk staff were very friendly. Hotel is really outdated. Nice, big, room but it just seems old. Don't expect anything fancy here. Didn't get to try the restaurant. Difficult to find elevators at first, ended up hauling our suitcases up the stairs because we were so tired and didn't want to bother backtracking to find elevators. Probably should have... More

Badly in need of refurbishment. Lamps not working, hair dryer not working, headboard of wall, towels worn and frayed. Glasses not wrapped, no plastic bag for ice bucket, supplies for coffee maker not wrapped. Where were those coffee cups and stir sticks before they were laid on that tray? Bathroom corners filthy. Impersonal staff. Won't be staying there again! Below... More

The TV in the room was a good size but the picture was fuzzy. Had a great steak at the restaurant. It seemed as though whenever the people above us would move the lamps would shake and make a rattly noise. Also the shower pressure was crazy like makes your back lose feeling. Another thing about the noise, I could... More

There was absolutely no parking forcing us to park in a random area at the back of the building. It says free breakfast and we were charged $5.95 per person instead. Beyond that we requested either a crib or playpen for our 10 month old and they didn't have anything for her. Walls are paper thin which made our grouchy... More

Thank you for your comments. The Albatross does not have a free breakfast, but does offer a great $5.95 breakfast special for our hotel guests. If possible, I would appreciate if you would let me know where you received your information so that I may correct it. We do have a limited number of playpens available and I am sorry... More

Used the hotel room with a friend for a few meetings in July of 2014. the staff was friendly and room average, nothing special. Good rate, good internet signal,flexible checkout and sometimes that's all that matters.

Great location for night stop and early start in the morning. Check in staff was beyond welcoming. Such a humorous and kind lady. Room was clean, bed was comfortable for a good night's rest, and shower pressure was great with lots of hot water. Towels were fresh and abundant...place is truly dated, but still kept clean and comfortable.I'd recommend for... More
