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

Recently stayed here with friend. Checked out the pictures and description online. Pictures must be 5-10 years old. Rooms very old, floors not vacuumed, bathroom tiles dirty and not mopped. A/C didn't work. No fridge in room as described. Nothing fixed or done about it, except got a fridge. PLENTY of other better choices on the street. I should have... 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.

Clean room, friendly staff and good location. Gym was small, but works. Complimentary breakfast had many choices, including some options for my vegan life style. Would recommend for anyone who needs to be across from SUNY or not far from down town.

Bought this hotel through hotwire so cannot complain about price at all. It is just your average hotel for staying in for a fly-by night. Nothing to fancy but its not terrible. The hotel staff was nice and there is breakfast.
