Everything was clean and neat. Bed very comfortable and clean. The bad thing was that the recepcionist called me at 3:00A.M. asking me if I found a charger a previous guess left, but there was nothing there. The maid/housekeeper removed the dirty towels at 11:00A.M and never brought the clean ones, so at 3:00PM I went to the front desk... More

We stay here when we visit family. It is a good location for us..Staff is very good and take care of the place. It is an older motel but they are always fixing it. Breakfast is your standard Waffle maker, juice, coffee and donuts. They add sausage and it is well stocked.

Very friendly and helpful staff. But the toilet was wobbly and only one set of towels. Plus no little refrigerator in the room. But it was clean and did smell like smoke and it was a smoke free room

This hotel is HORRIBLE!!! For starters, the carpet is FILTHY!!! The carpet feels greasy when you walk on it and it turns your feet or socks black like you walked in black paint. The maid service is non-existent or lacking at the very best. I'm not sure this hotel owns a vacuum and if they do it's broken. The carpet... More

Very dated hotel...I believe some of the guests may have been residents...on the first day a guy was working on his car in the back parking lot...the second day another guy was cooking on the back of his truck....just not happy with the stay.

This Hotel is at a very convenient location, near the Colonie shopping mall which is a very large mall and near very good eating locations, some are walking distance from the Hotel. The personnel is very attentive to your needs. I always stay at this Hotel when I come to Albany.
