My husband and I were traveling thru to Bar Harbor, Maine. We never make reservations while traveling. It was time to get off the road and we happened to stop there and we were not dissappointed at all. Very clean rooms, nice staff. good breakfast and great price.

We have stayed at many others with great results. the hotel information indicated it was newly renovated this was a great disappointment.

My third stay here over the last year. I booked a room for a Friday night a few days ahead of time when every room in Albany seemed to be sold out. A king room was $10 cheaper then a double so I took it. Room was big, clean, furnishings ok. We were on 2nd floor and although the hotel... More

We stayed here because of the price. I had read the reviews and was very nervous about the condition of the place when we arrived. We didn't experience anything that I read in the reviews that made me nervous. Also, the WiFi in our room worked great. The sheets on the bed were very worn, but appeared clean. The room... More

If you want a cheap room in albany that is "clean" this is your place. Friendly staff. Close to places to eat. Room needs serious renovating compared to other motels in price range though. Also after spending the night in about 20 motels in the past few months this is the first one where I heard noises through the walls.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here. It is convenient to where we want to go. The bed is comfortable, the room was clean. The breakfast is limited in choices but is kept well stocked. Pleasant staff, check-in and check-out were handled quickly. The rooms have been updated. The hallways and sidewalk areas are in need of painting... More

We arrived without a reservation on a Friday night, and the Front Desk Clerk was very attentive, excellent customer service, she helped us to secure a stay until Sunday. (This was an unexpected emergency trip). Room and bathroom were cleaned, but this is a hotel that needs some updating. Cleaning staff didn't speak English, but were very friendly and did... More

Helpful reception. Clean reception area. Room was clean and quiet. Beds were ok. Bathroom was ok with a good shower. Breakfast was very limited. Add some more variety. No tea available. Location is ok.

This hotel is in no way fancy. The breakfast is cold cereal, bagels and donuts. The room is clean and very simple. The staff wants to do well but seem like they have a lot on their plate with kids after school. There is no computer, the internet connection kinda sucks (only works well if your in the office). However... More
