1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This hotel feels like a dodgy motel in the 80, not a proper chain hotel. Moldy air, dirt, quirky swimming pool, depressing breakfast hall... The staff seemed to be doing their best but in a dumpy place like this it is useless.

Stayed here overnight in Albany. The room door was EXTREMELY hard to open and required a hard body-slam to open. I don't think an alertly person could have opened it. The room had dated carpet. We found a used flosser on the A/C unit and a moldy piece of chicken under the night stand. The beds were very comfortable and clean however. Room also smelled ok.

This is the hotel CSX puts their train crews in, and there are people coming and going all night. We felt very safe the whole time. For a quick stay, this hotel will suffice.

It was ok. The kitchen was locked & closed & no one seemed to know where to point us for going out to eat dinner. Really nice people, Nice bed, nice room, passed the bed-bug inspection :)
It was okay.
