We stayed here for two nights at the very beginning of August. The hotel is quiet. It's off the main road (which means you have to travel a few minutes to get to restaurants) but the peacefulness is a good trade off. The rooms themselves were clean, recently remodelled and were a good size that you could move around easily... More

It could have been a nightmare. The 3-11 shift desk clerks did a bait and switch. At 10:45pm we pulled in and checked into the hotel. Through Booking.com I ordered a queen room with two beds. On check-in I specifically asked did the room have 2 beds and the desk clerks- both of them said yes. I was livid when... More

You get what you pay for, I guess. My husband and I stayed overnight as a rest stop on our trip home from vacation. Well, we should have just kept going. The staff was nice but did not direct us on how to get to our room. We wandered the halls looking for the stairs to get to the second... More

Rooms recently updated. My problem with this type of Motel 6 format is there are NO carpets on the floor! Get beyond that and it is an okay property. The best thing about my stay was the customer service. The new manager is Beth and she is fantastic! Very outgoing, friendly and helpful. Kate on the front desk is also... More

In the evening of November 04,2013 at about 6p.m. after attending a meeting, I came back to the hotel to find no one at the front desk. There was no one there to challenge anyone who walked into the hotel this leads to an unsafe environment. There was also a heavy cigarette smell in the hall way even though the... More

This motel was a reasonably nice Motel 6. It had been recently refreshed, and the room was spacious and clean. The desk clerk was friendly, and they had a microwave in the lobby, which was nice. Otherwise, it was a pretty typical basic motel--not fancy but decent. The location was convenient to downtown Albany and I-90. Overall, it was a... More

I'm rather shocked to read what some people are saying about this location. We stayed here for one night recently and were reasonably satisfied. It was a standard, renovated Motel 6. Nothing more, nothing less. No horror stories to tell. We did overhear at checkout someone in the manager's office mention "police coming to your room". We laughed at that... More

Ok, I have been staying here for years when I visit Albany because they accept my dog and its convenient to highway and a good cab fare to Lark St. Yes, I was met at the front door where a housekeeper was out smoking (bad start) and yes they have had many shady people stay there, and yes I wouldn't...
