Decent hotel, but nothing fancy. With AAA, included breakfast for under $100. How can you eat that, directly opposite the University. Very convenient and very clean with a wonderful free continental breakfast buffet which was outstanding!

We stayed last weekend at the Fairfield Inn across from SUNY in Albany, New York. The hotel was clean, had a better than average breakfast, was well maintained. What set the hotel apart from others was the extremely helpful staff. From the check in to the breakfast staff right down to helping move the luggage cart around - they were... More

Fairfield's are Fairfield's, they are serviceable but not exactly the lap of luxury. This hotel staff, however, really goes the extra mile. -- A staff member held the non-automatic door open for me when he saw me arrive with luggage -- Front desk staff offered to give dinner recommendation -- Hotel manager was about to leave for the day, saw...

Went for a weekend shopping trip and hotel suited our need for clean room and breakfast included was a time-saver. A shower cap in the room was missing but no big deal. Hotel assistant manager greeted us and was very service oriented

While the facility was booked almost to capacity I heard little or no noise from the others in this hotel. The door closers are set so that the doors close quietly and do not SLAM! Breakfast offerings were along the norm that you would expect. The desk staff were always polite and helpful. A warm greeting every time you passed... More

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.
