I have very mixed feelings about my recent stay. The employees I dealt with were all great. I made an online reservation and was notified in the process of the lobby being under construction. If I wasn't notified, I do not know what I would have thought of seeing the lobby in the state it was in. The elevator stopped... More

We spend so much time at this hotel, that we are almost family. We are there almost every other weekend. The rooms could be updated, but overall for the price, plus breakfast, it is a great deal. Plus it is clean.

Upon making the reservation, I was told the Lobby was under renovation. No big deal, who hangs out in the lobby? They stated the restaurant was changing managment but still open. After traveling with hungry children, who are tired, we decide to stay and eat dinner at the hotel. WORST IDEA EVER. They were out of almost every wine, liquor... More

Given the lack of reasonably priced hotels close to Albany Med, if you're here to visit someone in the hospital you could do worse than the Best Western. The regular room price isn't great for what you get, and the rooms are standard mediocre chain hotel, but ask for the hospital rate. I found the staff to be very responsive... More

Very nice staff, clean room and very good breakfast. At $70 (with AAA discount), this was an exceptional value with a full breakfast. Located right across from SUNY Albany campus in a nice neighborhood.

The room was not very clean and the service was not great. One of the pillow cases had a quarter sized red stain on it, the refrigerator had someones old take out dinner that was so old the stench filled our room as soon as the refrigerator door was opened. The dresser had visible greasy fingerprints near the knobs. Also... More

The hotel was a quick stop over on the way to our final destination on the coast. The rooms were spacious and clean, the breakfast was awesome and appreciated, and the hotel was a big hit w/ the kids.

I had a great stay at the best western. I always enjoy my stay at a Best Western. The same here, a great bed, clean and a good connection. At about 5 minutes away there is a mall Stuyvesant Plaza, where you need have a Vermont Turkey Sandwich at Bountiful Bread.

Hotel is older, shows some wear, but is well kept up. They are refinishing the lobby I guess because you can't do much more with the place. It was clean, relatively quiet bu a long walk for ice. Bed was comfy and tv adequate
