Stayed here while in town for work. Got a great rate, rooms a little dated but clean and serviceable. Nice breakfast in the morning, coffee. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely stay here in the future. Great band for the buck. Though.....TripAdvisor said the motel had a bar/lounge.......Nope....

I've stayed here a few times also with other business travelers. It is pretty convenient to the area while being quite, near food, and a decent value for the price. Clean and pretty decently up to date.

Very nice for a one or two night stay. Desk help was very friendly, rooms were clean and breakfast was decent for a free breakfast. I was able to get a coupon from a freebie coupon magazine on the toll road and that saved a few bucks. Close to restaurants too.

First, let me say this is a great hotel to stay at! We had a roomy king (very comfy) room which had a frig & microwave and everything was exceptionally clean except for a thin line of dust gathered along the bottom edges of the walls. The bathroom looked new! There was no light on the desk and the plugins... More

My normal hotel around the block was unavailable, thought I would give them a try. Staff was friendly and helpful. Had trouble getting hot water both last night and this morning. As I paid the same as what I would pay around the corner for a much bigger and better room, I don't see any value here.

booking through hotels.com, my spouse didn't notice this hotel was offering smoking rooms. we found this smoke-filled horribly smelling corridor and same smelling room with our poor 2 kids, who were horrified, having never encountered similar circumstances before. also - no elevator, although there are quite a few stairs to drag your suitcases on. the clerk claimed he had no...

Little did we know when travelling through Albany that this weekend was a busy one...we stopped at several sub perfect hotels along the way and would not stay at them due to room quality or the ridiculous price. We happed upon this place with a room saver coupon and got the last room at that price. It was clean and... More

Given the price paid for this hotel, I was disappointed. The room was small by american standards, the whole mattress was swinging every time my partner was moving a bit, there was no water pressure and the breakfast room was too small to accommodate all the guests. There was only 1 tiny shampoo bottle, 1 tiny conditioner bottle and 1... More

There are 4 of us so it is a little crowded but all in all it is fine. The floor did not look like it had been vacuumed (my wife noticed:>)). Everything else seems okay. Breakfast is not too bad for this type of hotel offering. It had pretty quick access to the interstate. An affordable acceptable play to stay.
