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

great price, clean, friendly staff nothing fancy, good stopover while travelling. Easy to find off of I 90 from both directions. Take 87 N off I 90 then Exit 2 W. Its a short distance on left. Stayed twice so far, will stay again.

We got into our hotel room and they didn't even have the heat turned on for us, as they knew what time we would arrive and we were froze. It took a while to warm the room up. The clock did not work. one floor lamp was broken, there were ants all over in the bathroom and the vanity room... More

Stayed here 1 night, the bathroom toilet kept running all night because the faucet washer to old, the toilet moves because the floor seal is old, the bath drips all night because that faucet washer is old, the base of the shower curtain has mould on it and the heater only works on high. Clearly management doesn't care about this... More

I am a frequent visitor to the Albany area and have found the Econ Lodge Colonie Center Mall to be conveniently located, modestly priced and staffed with friendly, helpful and professional personnel from the management to the line and front desk staff. The rooms are always clean and well-maintained and on any occasion where something needed to be tended to,... More

I was skeptical of booking a room here, but the TA reviews got me to try it and it was worth it. The room was large and clean, SD TV, average bathroom, and the shower was a gusher. The breakfast was nothing special, all bread-based (toast, muffins, donuts, danishes, cereals) and nothing hot except for the coffee. I would normally... More

The Econo Lodge Colonie Center Mall is a bargain! The room I had was very well updated (well -- for a Econo Lodge that is). It had some nice appointments like granite counter and a updated bathroom. The updates were nice, although you can definitely tell you're still at an Econo Lodge. Some of the floor tiles were loose, and... More

On my way back from Georgia to Québec, Canada, I do stop in that hotel at least once a year maybe twice. I like it, it is clean, close to highway and prices very affordable. The breakfast is OK, not very abundant in choice but OK . The staff is very courteous and friendly. Overall, I like the place and... More

We stayed here for one night while our daughter was running a marathon. We chose this motel because it was in the right location. For an Econo Lodge we were pleasantly surprised. The room was large and had everything we needed. The breakfast was much better than expected with a nice breakfast area. This motel had clearly been a higher... More
