This place was old, smelly, and disgusting. Bed was uncomfortable, bathroom old. I couldn't wait to get out. Nothing worth seeing in the area surrounding the hotel either. Don't stay here. Total waste of your money.

The room is large, the beds are acceptable but air is terrible. There is a strong smell of something different from cigarettes. I can't say what it is because I don't know what it is. It took us hours to get accustom to it and be able to sleep. By the way, air conditioning was working well.

The atmosphere at this location is a bit sketchy, (the scent of refer is powerful at times) however super convenient for getting on/off the highway and less than 10mins w/o traffic to downtown Albany. Parking is free and close to places for eating. I stayed two nights. It was noisy at times, but the staff were extremely polite and if... More

Stayed for one night at this hotel. I wouldn't say that the front desk clerk was the friendliest. Common areas could have used some cleaning. Room was ok; had basic amenities. No carpeting which was ok. We were in a non-smoking hall, but I could swear I smelled cigarette smoke! Got up early in the morning to take a walk... More

I drove my daughter to a training program in the Albany area and chose to travel with my dog. After I dropped my daughter off, my Malti-poo Sophine and I checked in at this Motel 6 to stay overnight. There were quite a number of other guests with dogs. Apparently dogs can stay in any Motel 6 (no pet fee)... More

At first I thought it was ok for the money but I was wrong! The fan in the bathroom was malfunctioning and was SO LOUD!! The staff wasn't overly friendly but they weren't rude either..then it hit the fan! I saw ants in a couple spots in the room..there's laminate floors instead of carpet so it's easy to see how...

I will never stay in a Motel 6 again. When checking on line for a place to stay the night before our early 6:00 a.m. flight out of the Albany International Airport, we found one that allowed smoking in the rooms (my husband is the smoker, and it is January after all, and he didn't enjoy going outside for a...

I rarely stay in a Motel 6, but feeling a bit adventurous we decided to spend a night here. It looks fairly new, but when we got inside my friend and I nearly gagged. There was a horrid overpowering stench that was slightly remedied with an air freshner. The shower floor and toilet seat were covered with dark little pubic... More

Nasty place. I will never stay at a Motel Six again. Stains all over the bedspread and sheets. Burn holes in carpet and bedspread. The check in was good and I got the extra internet. The internet was so slow that I used my cellphone data. This hotel smells like smoke everywhere even in the non smoking room I was... More
