I was very pleased with my stay. I continue to stay at this location because the rooms are clean and staff is friendly and helpful. Huda at the front desk always goes out of her way to make my stay the best possible. Breakfast is always great too!

The hotel is Super clean. Rooms are small but meet all of your basic needs. Beds are a little firm for my liking, but that's a personal thing. Some people prefer firm beds. Breakfast is Free, they have eggs, bacon or sausage, waffle machines, cereal, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, and a juice machine. Not the best tasting, but a nice assortment... More

My wife and I stayed here with our two small kids for two nights. The room was clean, comfortable and modern, as were the hallways. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. Its proximity to dining options and major highways is great.

We booked a block of seven rooms. Sales coordinator Morgan was very accommodating and made the process easy. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bar/restaurant was a convivial place to hang out, and the parents with small children found the small pool to be a welcome diversion. The free breakfasts were substantial and varied, Couple of...

Would not suggest this hotel. Although the staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions as to where to have dinner, the hotel itself was old & worn. My room was small, the mattress was old, and the locks on the door did not work well. The clientele was iffy, would not suggest a woman stay there alone.

Good service from the front desk. The indoor pool is absolutely delightful, with nice, warm water. Breakfast is more than adequate. The beds are divine! The shower head is luxurious!! I would happily stay here again, and most certainly recommend it to anyone in the Albany area. It is close to plenty of popular businesses, and not difficult to get... More

I chose this hotel because of it's convenient location to our home & to the highway. I booked our wedding guests here and it was a great experience overall. The hotel is dated, but clean with courteous and helpful staff. I would certianly use this hotel again and recommend it.

This facility is excellent for one night or extended stays. The staff is friendly, professional, and courteous. The facility is clean and comfortable. The breakfast they provide is excellent. A great value too for the cost.

The hotel exterior is nondescript, but inside is a Best Western quality facility. The rooms were great - comfy king in one room, two beds in the other. Plenty of lights, small but functional bathroom with large tub. We didn't try the TV but was large, table and chair with ottoman (that slid under, so didn't waste space. Heat worked... More
