The room was very clean. Beds very comfortable. Rooms had refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Restaurants within a short driving distance. Very basic but fit our needs and also available at very reasonable price

We stayed at this motel for 3 days in April of 2014. We were very much impressed with the spacious (room with 2 beds), well kept and clean room and bathroom, since I had read some previous bad reviews about this motel. We loved the large pool area, the very cute breakfast room and sitting area with quaint little tables... More

The building was smaller then I thought, but it was in a good location. I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff were very friendly and answered any questions that I had. The only concern is they don't have breakfast.

The stay was what I expected for what I paid. I was traveling to an event in the area and just needed a place to change and sleep for the night. I arrived around 10pm and from the minute I got into my room until I laid down to sleep, a dog across the hall was barking nonstop. It was... More

This hotel was comfortable and clean I got it for very reasonable price. I reserved the room from their website norwoodinnalbanymn.com and the staff was very friendly. Every staff we met (receptionist, housekeeping) greeted us with a smile and a "hello".

I stayed at this motel last year. At that time the refrigerator in the room did not work at all and the pool was "closed for maintenance." We asked for a replacement refrigerator that never appeared in spite of their promises. The accommodations were adequate. This year I booked a room with double beds and was told that all they...

Great staff - super friendly and helpful!! We booked a last minute weekend getaway and they had the best price of anyone around. Rooms were very clean (nicer décor than before), nice and quiet too. I liked it

We attended a wedding in Albany and chose to book this hotel since it is very close to the reception site and because there is a pool for our 2 children. For starters, we show up and ask what the pool hours are and the rude man (possibly manager, an Indian gentleman) told us the pool was closed for maintenance... More
