This was the second time I have stayed at this Econo Lodge in Colonie, NY. There are 5 other motels in the immediate vicinity, but this Econo Lodge is my favorite. The sheets and towels were immaculate and soft. The bed was very comfortable. The carpet looked brand new and was clean. The continental breakfast was adequate and appreciated. I... More

I have stayed here twice. Same room both times! Quick check in. Front desk staff is accommodating and friendly. Breakfast is good. Convenient to where I need to be. I will stay here again. You get a very good deal for the price.

I went out to dinner, hung out with a friend, and when I came back that night, the room was perfect! I would recommend this place if... More

Hi, I appreciate my stay at this motel, We had a very large room with a queen bed. The room was clean samething for the restroom. We had a free continental breakfast that was nice located in a very well decorated reception office. I recommended that motel if you got to stay in Albany.

This hotel is not bad for the price. It was clean, but they definitely can improve. The bedsheet had a cigarette burn hole, it was the first apparent defect. The fitness room needs to be revamped. It definitely is not inviting.

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.

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
