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

We just needed a place for the night -- and this more than filled the bill. The room was big, on the top floor as we requested, check in speedy, we had a fridge and microwave (which we didnt need/use, but nice that they're there for longer stays), bed was comfortable, room appointments were updated, breakfast was fine (bagels, muffins,...

This hotel is a nice simple place. The rooms aren't fancy but are nice, especially for the very low cost. The beds are comfortable (at least for a long-weekend length stay). Even if the decor may be a bit dated or old-school hotel looking everything (counters, sheets, towels, blankets, table) has always been clean. The hotel has just recently bought... More

I visited here with my father and 11 year old son over the weekend and stayed 2 nights. My father had his own room and I had mine. My father's room was updated and had a mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. My room was not (old bedspread and 1980's decor) and had no frills other than soap, shampoo and... More

I booked this hotel because of the reviews I had read here that stated it had improved. Now, I have never stayed here before so I have no idea if it was terrible or not previously. That being said, it was a one night stay for a concert up in Saratoga. The building is obviously older and the decor is... More
