This is a funny place, in parts up to date, in part a little run down, old, and a little pungent. However the staff were very friendly and helpful. Pool looked appealing but is situated where everyone can walk past to look at you, all in all an ok place to rest your head for a night or two, but... More

We were on our way to New York City and used the Fairfield as a place to spend the night and take a break on our drive to the big city. The positives: great location, right close to the interstate. Free breakfast, which was as good as what you might pay $15 a piece for in NYC (as we found... More

The staff was very nice, especially the front desk. The location was good. There was a nice looking pool on the first floor, but we did not try it. The hallways were clean but shabby. The bed was comfortable and the room clean, but the room was a bit run down. There were no alcoholic beverages available on the premises.... More

The inn was great with privileges to their sister property next door. The service and staff were so helpful, friendly, and cordial. The breakfast was really good, plenty of choices for the light to heavy eater. The inn is also directly across from SUNY-Albany campus and very close to major restaurants and the Colonie Mall, Rt 87 and the NYST.... More

This hotel is right across from the SUNY Albany campus, along with a bunch of other hotels. It's clean, has an indoor pool and includes breakfast in the rate. It's nothing spectacular and not near any restaurants. It's worth it if you need to be near campus and you can get a good rate.

Family of 4 on a long weekend (Labour day) getaway. Very reasonable rate, clean room, well-maintained indoor pool and hot-tub, small workout room on 2nd floor with brand new elliptical & treadmill, hot breakfast included, close to the University, minutes away from the huge CrossGates mall complex, as well as the Colonie area. For sure, you need a car to... More

The hotel is okay, room was clean, but felt in need of a bit of an overhaul. Reasonable bathroom supplies, the usual items in a hotel of this price. As usual with Marriott a refrigerator was an optional extra. On mine they had not even bothered to peel the bright yellow energy information sticker off the front, and by virtue... More

Nice location if you are waiting for dorms at SUNY to open like us. Breakfast was nice. The room didn't smell nice but was acceptable. Free Wifi was good. Receptionists were helpful, especially when we asked about food delivery brochures.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Rhode Island. The location is good if you are going to visit the university, but it is not convenient to any restaurants that are within walking distance unless you want to eat at a neighbouring hotel. The hotel itself was clean and the check in quick and painless. The rooms were... More

Stayed here while en route between Montreal and Baltimore. Provides the standard amenities from Fairfield: free Internet, decent rooms, decent selection of stations on the cable TV, basic workout facilities, free parking, and a location near the highway (as well as Crossgates Mall).
