Stayed here for a wedding. Very comfortable bed, really nice linens. Sports bar right next door. Staff friendly. Fresh baked cookies at the desk when we checked in. Shuttle bus took us to the wedding and back. Very relaxing stay.

We stopped here for one night on the way to Boston. It was conveniently just off the I90 and just east of any Albany traffic the next morning, a perfect location. I had called the week before to request adjoining rooms as we were travelling with our daughter and grandchildren. When we arrived they had that all arranged for us.... More

Stayed here for a few days last week. It was a decent hotel for a good price. They have a fairly robust breakfast bar and coffee on tap all day/night. It's located really near shopping and other eating spots.. (Avoid that Sports place... Ughhh). The rooms were a little worn, but it was clean. The Beds are a little soft... More

Was here for 3 nights with friends. Even though we arrived early our room was ready. It was spotless! The front desk staff went above and beyond in finding and printing out directions for us as well as making suggestions to attractions in the area. Breakfast in the morning was very good. You could pretty much have your choice of... More

I recently spent a night at this hotel...just one night but it was very nice...if you can, ask to stay on the top floor with the view of Downtown Albany. The other side of the building faces the road. Everything was relatively clean. The sheet did have what looked like a bloodstained drop on it but I didn't notice it... More

This is your typical HI Express. The rooms were clean and adequate. The breakfast was the same as every other location. My stay was just average. Definitely not bad by any means, but wasn't excellent either.

This hotel offers just enough of everything to make it a place to return to! The rooms have (always) been specious and clean. The desk personal are extremely helpful ( through internet fiascos!), and the breakfast buffet is quite adequate but very well stocked and managed . Plasticware and plates are conveniently displayed for guest use - great when you... More

We spent two nights here while attending a nearby geocaching event in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. There was no a non-smoking room available when we checked in, but the desk clerk worked the room plans so we could get what we reserved. No microwave or fridge in the room, which was a down-check. WiFi was reasonably fast, room amenities were good otherwise,... More
