I had to stay here for week due to work. The place was just alright. There was a problem with the shower. The handle spun around and there was cold water and hot water and the water stopped running in the space in between. I asked at the desk to have it looked at. I returned to my room to... More

My recent stay at Quality Inn Central was very comfortable. The value and location were most satisfactory, the staff pleasant and helpful. I look forward to re booking on my return business trips to Albany.

Stayed at this hotel for business and was very disappointed with the cleanliness of it. I have stayed at many quality inns in the past and they were fine, this one was by far the worst. The room smelled the carpet molding around the walls was falling off. The furniture in the room was also old and worn and smelled.... More

We stayed here when we went to the Adirondack National Car Show in Lake George. It was close to an hour drive away from the show; however, the price was great, and we were an hour closer to home this morning! The room was a little bit smaller than usual for a king size bed; but it was fine. The... More

My title says it all; and mostly - the room was very clean with no complaints. Small hotel - (100 rooms +/-), two story walk up. Our room had a compact fridge & microwave, as well as a roomy desk for the laptop & free wi-fi. Shoprite, Dunkin Donuts, and Liquor Store are less than 5 minutes away via auto.... More

Early August is when college tour season kicks into high gear. My son and I decided to visit a few schools in upstate NY and needed a home base. I looked at hotels in Schenectady but decided, based on hotel and tripadvisor sites, to go with this one in Albany. I paid a bit more but it was worth it.... More

Hotel itself not bad, service was fine - room was clean but small - had a queen bed only - husband not thrilled with the 4 12" pillows on the bed instead of regular ones but I think that's becoming more common now (not sure why, cleaning??). I wouldn't rave about the hotel but not complain either, breakfast was adequate... More
