Would come back and stay again staff were very kind and rooms very clean. Close to down town for the Bruno Mars concert close to mall for my young daughter to shop. Would stay again if back in the area.

The hotel was reasonably priced, clean & friendly. The breakfast went way beyond our expectations! This Best Western will definitely be our hotel choice on future Albany visits. I'm fussy about pillows, so I should have brought my own for the best quality sleep. That's the only negative for me. My husband had no complaints.

The location is convenient to the thruway and also there was an Outback restaurant not too far away which made grabbing a quick dinner after a long drive easy. The decor is a bit old and tired. The pool is under renovation. The breakfast was adequate, nothing to rave about. No raisin bran, but some other cereals. A nice selection... More

Our room was a bit of a walk through a long hall. The hall was really dirty. It looked like it needed at least a good vacuuming! However, the room was clean. The staff was nice and over all our stay was good.

The honesty of your employees is excellent. We accidently left our laptop in the lobby of your hotel and they kept it safely for us for four days. We could not be more grateful!!! We would have had a very difficult time restoring a new one! Kudos to your staff at Albany NY! We so appreciate their honesty and dedication!... More

Stayed 2 nights because I had an activity at SUNY Albany, which is right across the street. Very convenient that I could easily walk to. The staff at front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was a bit small, but nicely decorated and with an updated 32" flat panel TV. The cable was spotty, as was the internet... More

I'm stuck here for 2 days. Pros: clean room, flat screen tv Cons: limited shuttle use, continental breakfast is unorganized and crowded, waffles ok, pool is closed for repairs, breakfast doesn't start till 630 I chose this place because of the shuttle and pool but for the price I paid, the lack of care to customers, and the time I...

Location is very convenient. Free Hot Break fast, but no longer serves freshly cooked potato fries. However still very good. Rooms are very big, plenty of parking space all around, impressive front desk. Over all, It was a good stay

The staff went over the top for my stay. Very helpful, outgoing and just what u want when checking into a hotel. I love Best Western Plus hotels but this is almost a Plus, without the Plus on the title. You get fridge and microwave in the room. Modern looking and very clean. The beds are comfortable and nice.
