The first floor room facing the inner courtyard was stale, dark, depressing and outdated. It was so bad I asked for a room on the second floor. The room I was given overlooked that same inner courtyard; it had more light and was larger, so I stayed. But the Front Desk did not tell me that extremely loud disco music... More

We have stayed at this place numerous times over the years. It's clean, usually quiet and close to the Albany Airport with shuttle service. Rates are average. The sports bar and the restaurant are kind of cold and expensive. We usually find a good place to eat on Wolfe Rd., like Chilies, Olive Garden, Outback, ect. Lots of choices. I... More

The wait to check in was very slow as one person was responsible for checking in the two people in front of me, answering the phones and selling snacks in the shop to the side of the front desk. He did his best and was friendly but the wait was too long. I stayed in the tower building and entering... More

Per prior posts, they still have smoking rooms at this hotel which combined with their ventilation seems to circulate the same air throughout. Also, ground level rooms look out on ... the hallway so curtains must be closed for any privacy - no chance for natural light yet plenty of noise gets in. So, if a dark, smokey, burning eyes...

Hello Steelydad2014 - Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. While we do still offer our guests an option of smoking or non-smoking rooms we are happy to say that we will be eliminating the smoking option as of the end of the year. We recognize that the odor from these rooms effects more than just the... More

I like a cigar after dinner so I try to get a smoking room when I travel. The smoking rooms in the holiday inn are inside, I mean no windows and a very passive vent system. I've never been so uncomfortable in a smoking room. So after 1/2 a cigar, seeing the smoke just lay there I took a walk... More

Hotels atmosphere isn't that great, the lobby and indoor pool area needs a lot of updating, sprucing up, making it more appealing, the plastic plants are dusty and real ones are looking fake. The indoor pool was closed, some maintance issue, but jacuzzi was open, did not use. Previous stays, lifeguards (?) can't seem to put down the cell phone... More

Low ceilings, poorly lighted, worn ambiance with that special touch of tired that says "stay elsewhere." We enjoyed the several "out of order" signs on the ice machine and in the business center almost as much the fun game of trying to guess why there is a cavernous unused area near the pool (post-apocalyptic convention center scene for a film...

Unfortunately my company makes all of our lodging accommodations, so I do not have a choice of where to stay when I'm in town. The hotel is very noisy, due to the convention rooms being located near guest rooms. Do not know what the issue is with the water in the bathrooms, but the water goes from warm to scalding... More
