Will stay here in the future. Had everything we needed. Close to the train station. Enjoyed the Chinese food across the street. Very convenient. Good Value. Need an elevator in the two story building that we stayed in.

The rooms were disgusting. There's mold in the bathroom, crap splattered on the wall, dirty socks and bugs in the bed. Tequila in the dresser. The carpets are stained. And the rooms smell like crap mixed with smoke and must. The floors aren't vacuumed. The sheets are clearly not clean nor are the blankets and pillows. There was dog poop... More

I stayed here for a long period and they staff are very friendly and helpful. Very good location and the rooms are quite clean. The prices are great for the area and about 5 min drive from downtown Albany.

No complaints about this basic hotel, except that it's difficult to find any services nearby. We did find a Chinese restaurant in a small strip mall a few miles to the left (west), between a Subway and a hot dog restaurant. If you're looking for a low-priced option and are just passing through this should be OK, but not for... More
