One night stay. Front desk staff is very friendly and extremely efficient. Place is spotless - rooms are pretty quiet. Easy access to the highway and city. Bathrooms could use a little updating. Otherwise, very nice. Breakfast is the usual HIE fare.

Stopped here on a business trip and enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Room was very clean and quiet. There is a sports bar next door that also serves food. The breakfast area is large and the free food was hot and abundant. They also have a small gym. Friendly staff.

The front desk gal made us feel like an old friend coming for a visit! Very personable. The view was wonderful and the food was good at the sports bar across the parking lot. The room was ok, but the bed was not comfortable for us. Breakfast was typical and the area was nice.

We were greeted with a friendly welcome as we entered the hotel. We were also given a choice of floors for our room. We found the room tastefully decorated, bright and sunny, and sparkling clean. The next morning we were treated to another wonderful staff member who was taking care of the breakfast buffet. Not only was she pleasant but... More

What a joy from check in to check out! We had no idea when we booked it where it was, but it a great location when traveling around Albany. It's high on a hill top & you get a lovely view of Albany. We were welcomed by a lovely, cheerful, helpful & professional front desk person named Annie! What a... More

We were there this past weekend for a basketball tournament. The whole team stayed there. The rooms were very nice and so was the breakfast. The location is right off the highway. We were very satisfied with the hotel.

Convenient and comfortable. The room was nothing special, although it was clean and quiet. No microwave or fridge, but there was a sports grill and bar across the parking lot so we ate dinner out. The breakfast room was bright and spacious. Would stay there any time.

While the rooms were nothing much to talk about, at the discount rate mine overlooked the busy highway, the service and the breakfast were phenomenal. The great prices and staff more than make up for the less than spectacular views and their free continental breakfast puts most other, and more expensive, places to shame. You need to try the cinnamon... More

A Solid , reliable place to stay at a reasonable price 11 minutes from Albany Capitol area. We booked it online. Check in was quick ,however, the room we were assigned (Room 206) had a broken latch on the window, the window would shut but wouldn’t seal. The resulting whistle from the wind was loud enough to have kept us... More
