Joe W met us at check in and was very helpful and outgoing. He gave us easy directions to the tulip festival and college area. Hotel location and a commendations were great. Breakfast was good for continental style.

I chose this location due to the availability of 2 bedroom units, due to a toddler that goes to bed early, and the proximity to the highway. I stayed at a Towne Place in Virginia that looked exactly like this, so I knew what to expect. The check in was simple and fast. I was given accurate directions to find... More

Due to a rate jump at my normal haunt, I looked into TownePlace and found a deal. It's a little out of my way, but I thought I'd embrace it for the low rate. It wasn't difficult to find or to access and it literally is right across from SUNY. Short distance to downtown Albany, and to the Dunkin Donuts... More

Have been staying here weeks at a time for work. Rooms are spacious and clean, kitchens are well stocked, and I didn't find any of the dinginess described by other reviewers. Front desk personnel ranges from extremely friendly and helpful to oddly hostile and over-sensitive, depending on who's on. The breakfast space is also very clean and efficiently maintained; what...

Looking at some of the earlier reviews there is clearly a difference of opinion regarding the quality and location of the hotel. If you are looking for a hotel "experience" in the luxury since of the word then this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a quiet place to sleep, a clean room, central location... More

We have stayed here several times because of the size of the suites; the proximity to my brother's house but especially because it is pet friendly. Admittedly the rooms are dated (the TownePlace near the Medical Center is much nicer) but this one is cheaper and more convenient location wise. I'm using the suite (generally the 2 bedroom) to sleep... More

Great central location near SUNY Albany, the malls, restaurants, etc. Friendly, helpful staff, nice complementary breakfast, great 2 bedroom suite layout, excellent view of SUNY campus; facility and furniture getting a little tired and dated, carpets beat, laminate floor does not belong in bathrooms, parking sparse at times. Overall enjoyed our stay and will be back.

Based on some earlier reviews, we booked this place for 7 nights. On arrival, we were concerned how close it was to the interstate. And from there things went downhill so fast that within half an hour of checking in, we decided one night was more than enough and we cancelled the remaining 6 nights of our stay. This place...
