Days Inn Schenectady was a very basic budget hotel and if you have ever stayed in one of those you would know what to expect. It is located a bit off the downtown core of Schenectady but within short walk distance. The area seemed bit seedy, but safe. Having said this, room was maintained clean, bedclothes were fine. Wi-fi worked... More

Right away I saw that the property was NOT handicapped accessible- the only way out of the lobby to the elevator and guest rooms was up a staircase. To get to the complimentary breakfast(which was good) was to go downstairs on one side of the lobby, then up the stairs on the other side of the lobby. Isn,t it federally... More

We stayed one night and regretted it the entire time. The place serves as a homeless shelter and while it is understandable everyone needs a place to live, this should be disclosed to travelers especially with young children. This is in a bad location. The staff openly complained at the front desk about their homeless guests and their abuse of... More

Awful customer service. Entire staff was rude. The entire hotel smelled terrible. The beds were uncomfortable. I had an issue with the $200 incidental charged to my card and the manager was very rude to me. No staff were in the lobby area for over two hours yet the manager tried to tell me I was lying. Like I didn't... More

But cheap. Beds like oatmeal. But breakfast passable for this category of hotel. Proximity to Union College seems to be only reason for its existence. It is certainly not the friendliness of staff or charm of the hotel.

I use Hotwire often, and have always been pleased with what I get. NOT THIS TIME! First, the woman at the desk when we came in informs me that she needs my credit card, and is going to put a hold on for "incidentals". OK, "How much?" I ask her. "$200." "TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS?!? What do you think I am... More

navin p, General Manager at Days Inn Schenectady, responded to this review

All guests that reserve a room through a 3rd party are required to provide a personal credit card for incidental charges. When booking a reservation through a 3rd party, such as Hotwire, it is clearly stated on the confirmation letter that the guest will be responsible for all incidental charges. We do not charge the personal credit card unless incidental... More

I recently stayed in Days In for about two weeks. They just changed the carpets in the hallways and rooms and it looked as more work was on the way. The manager was very kind and helped me move into a room that had both wi-fi and wired Internet connections. The rooms were very quiet throughout my stay. Free breakfast... More
