The first thing that struck me when we walked in was the smell. It was extremely musty/mildewy smelling. I left the exhaust fan and AC running when we went out to dinner in the hopes it would clear up, but it never did. The carpet needs updating and was damp. The toilet tank had a crack in it and the...

After reading some comments on Trip Advisor we decided to book a room in the tower. Considering the chlorine smell when passing the other rooms this was probably a good idea, but perhaps you cannot smell that inside the room anyway. Our two queen size bed room was quite nice. It is equipped with a safe and a refrigerator. The... More

For years I have come up to Albany on Memorial Day weekend and stayed at the Marriott on Wolf Road on Friday night. As I noticed the Holiday Inn had rooms by the pool I decided to give them a chance. I booked a room through Expedia that was listed as "poolside". We were meeting friends there and wanted to... More

I've been reviewing some of the best hotels that I tend to stay at again and again and I began to think about some of the hotels that I didn't enjoy staying at as well. The ONLY hotel that comes to mind is this one. While I have had my fair share of average stays at hotels around the world,... More

This place is good if you want a place to rest while in Albany. The hotel is huge and felt quite crowded. The pools were full of children (which was OK for us, but some might not like the crowd). Also, this hotel is close to the airport but far from downtown; not many good food options here. As far... More
