Tired, that's about the extent of how I'd review this Fairfield Inn, I've enjoyed staying in Fairfield Inns when we're on the road, they're consistently decent, and you get a nice simple breakfast. This one missed the mark, however. It's pretty depressing from the lobby you go by a strong smelling pool and into a dank holding area where you... More

Nice location if you are just there to visit Albany or if you are on your way somewhere else only stopped to spend a night. Conveniently located close the Inter State. The front desk staff were very helpful.

We (DD 9, DS 9, & DH) stayed at Fairfield Inn Albany for 1 night on our way to Lake George. We had never stayed at a Fairfield as we are part of the Hilton Honors system. We however, got a great rate on Priceline and I'm am so pleased we did. The location was excellent. Less then a mile... More

My daughter's AAU team stayed at the hotel for two nights and I found the hotel to be clean and the staff to be extremely helpful. We booked very early in the year for a May stay and when an issue for my leg occurred, I contacted the hotel and they were very helpful in setting up a handicap room... More

Between a huge AAU basketball tournament going on across the street at University of Albany, graduation weekend for many local colleges and Memorial Day weekend, the hotel was slammed. Being there alone (my son was graduating college at RPI,12 miles away) I was unlucky enough to get perhaps the worst room in hotel. Not only was it near heavily used... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Met the standards of Fairfield Inns. The breakfast was ample: hard boiled and scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, toast and English muffins, bagels, Danish, cereal, yogurt, fresh apples and bananas, fresh fruit salad, OJ, cran juice, coffee, tea. The exercise room was small... More

Stayed overnight with my daughter to attend a friend's party. Our room was clean and pleasant, beds very comfortable, temperature in the room easy to regulate. Didn't have time (or suits) to use the pool, but it looked well-kept up and inviting. Complimentary breakfast was better than expected, lots of options, food was fresh and plentiful. The hotel staff was... More

Pleasant staff (Glen at check-in was particularly cheerful) at a generally clean, reasonably up-to-date property. It meets all the standards for a decent overnight: Moderately comfortable furniture and bedding, inoffensive decor in decent shape, no surprise noise problems or other shortcomings. Clean grounds, good housekeeping, a clean little indoor pool, a tiny but workable fitness room, free wi-fi and parking... More

The only reason this hotel got a 3 instead of a 2 is because the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was decent. But the hallways looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in weeks... The rooms were pretty bare bones. Needs a bit of work. But fine for the night.
