Rooms not cleaned. Hairs all over in the bathroom. Locks do not work. Sometimes it takes 20 tries to get in your room, sometimes 3. They will try to say your cell phone must of been next to the key card etc. Everyone in hotel frustrated by not being able to get in their room upon the first swipe. Breakfast... More

Stayed here for a wedding, horrible decision. Not sure if room was even cleaned after last person. Even had a half empty bottle of shampoo in the shower, only the half empty bottle! Highly recommend staying elsewhere, especially for the cost.

Expensive for the room you get. Also, found toe nail clippings under the side of our bed...Unfortunately, not many other hotels in the area to choose from. They offer continental breakfast which is nice but does not consist of much more than donuts and coffee.

This hotel is absolutely terrible. We had our wedding guests stay here and apparently a housekeeper couldn't come to work on the day of the wedding. We had many guests waiting at 4pm in the afternoon for their rooms to be cleaned. No one could check-in because the manager wouldn't call in back up or help clean the rooms. My... More

This hotel was not the greatest. It is the only one within the area so you pretty much are forced to stay there. I booked a room with 2 queen beds and then they upgraded and charged me for the suite which I did not need or want for money purposes and had no normal rooms left. Management seemed to... More

Have stayed here in the past. Excellent property for the excellent price. Rooms clean and properly stocked. Staff friendly and prompt. Could use a more convenient outlet for laptops and charging stations. Only one is under the desk,and had a great stay

We have stayed here many times over the years since it is convenient for our family gatherings and my father lives in Albany. We stayed 3 nights in mid-February in the 2-room king suite. The price is reasonable and the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are okay, nothing special, but the bedding and towels are in... More

We planned the wedding and wanted to have a place for our guest to stay. We thought since this was close to where our reception was it would make it easy on them. We were so wrong! We made our reservation and had room blocks made a year before the wedding, We were promised updates on when rooms were full... More

Used for recent wedding. Problems with management from day 1. 90+ degrees and air conditioners didn't work. One family checked in and had to be moved because of air conditioner and then they had the audacity to give it to another family later so my good friends ended up having to drive 2 1/2 hours home after the wedding because...
