I stayed here as part of a multi state baseball tour. This is an older hotel, but the rooms are large and the breakfast was great. I would highly recommend this hotel to all budget conscience travelers.

Great Stay on our way to New Hampshire. The hotel was older but it provided a good nights rest. The morning breakfast was excellent. All the items were available and there was plenty of room to sit unlike most breakfasts at other chain hotels

We chose this hotel as it was one of the better rated economical hotels in Albany. It is an old place and the carpets are pretty seriously worn, the room we had was small and basically fit our king size bed and little else. We stayed here on a Thursday night and the hotel was full. We could deal with... More

Perfectly adequate when traveling for work, reasonably priced and a convenient location. Cheerful staff and pleasant enough rooms, though not quite as clean as I'd like (not dirty, just not squeaky clean and fresh).

Stayed for two nights on a business trip. Hotel has a dated and worn look, particularly the hallway carpeting, but the room was clean. Check-in staff was pleasant. Mattress was comfortable - pillows were numerous but flat. I was gone all day and when I came back hoping to relax at 6:30 pm my room had still not been made... More

The staff were nice, but the hotel needs some TLC. Lobby, hallways and bathrooms needs to be updated. The bedroom was ok, but it needed to be dusted and the carpet needed to be vacuumed. The room also had a musty odor. We had to purchase air freshener to spray the room. Also, the fitted sheets on both beds were... More

The room was clean, large and comfortable. The staff was accommodating and the complimentary breakfast very satisfactory. This hotel was better then average especially considering how reasonable priced it was for this time of year.

Stayed here for two nights. Rooms are dirty. Hotel itself is old, run down, and not well maintained. Hotel has a weird smell as soon as you walk in and just feel uncomfortable being there. Avoiding this at all costs.

Breakfast has the waffle makers and baked goods fruit and yogurt and cereal and sausage and eggs it was fine. nothing spectacular but perfectly edible.
