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.

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
