First, I agree with what others say: you get what you pay for. This was an inexpensive option in a city with a few inexpensive options (there were cheaper, but their reviews looked awful, so I booked the Hojo). We had a non-smoking King, with a pool view. The view is definitely better than the back of the hotel. GOOD:... More

We should have kept looking but we hadn't booked ahead due to that useless coupon book which is a sham, fyi. On the plus side, management was friendly and there have been no bedbug incidences reported.But that's it for positives. It smelled like urine (dirty mop) and other than the beds being changed it was filthy.

The staff was very friendly and ready to serve our needs. I will stay there next time I am in Albany and any other times I go there. I will and have recommended this motel to my friends and family. My family was very satisfied. Joanne E. Pickert

Worst stay ever. We checked in around 1 am and the lady at the front desk gave us a terrible room which it appeared had not been cleaned in ages. Then we go back to her to see if there was another room available where we can move. So when we went to the lady at the desk again, she... More

Room had a bad smell, men's dirty athletic shorts left under vanity, (apparently housekeeping did not clean up after previous occupants) bathroom Door very dirty with dried stains and dirty handprints. I do not want to stay in Another Howard Johnson facility.
