“Dated and past it - never saw anything like it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Stayed at HJ in Albany in June and was pretty shocked with the place. Rooms themselves were very date and smelly and the surroundings of the place were worn out and dirty. Rooms were not serviced at all during our stay and breakfast was free available in a tiny room and provided on disposable ware. We had two rooms with a junk room in between the two rooms. The only fortunate part was the pool even though my son cut his hand on the poolside due to rough finish of the surfaces. We moved on after 2 nights to a much better and actually cheaper place.
Never to be repeated.

Room Tip: none to recommend
