We arrived late and found booking as expected. Desk staff were friendly. Room was clean, however it did smell of smoke especially in the bathroom, although it is a non-smoking room. For an overnight stay it was fine.

My son just began attending a nearby college and we were hoping to find a clean, pet-friendly hotel close to his campus. We found it at the Red Roof Inn. The front desk staff was courteous and friendly; the location was easy to find (well, besides the entrance being behind some trees) and there is plenty to do/places to eat all very close to the hotel. The room was a bit on the small side, but more than spacious enough for an overnight stay (or two). Really appreciated the newly-renovated floors and I liked that the rooms opened to the outside, which made it a lot easier with the dog (rather than having to bring him through a lobby area). Also, the lawn area in the back to walk the dog was great. The bathroom looked a little dated but was clean and the water pressure was great/water was hot. The beds were also very comfortable. They almost enticed our son to stay at the hotel with us, but it was a Saturday night, so he opted to go back to campus! The only downside was the jets flying low overhead, but this would be true for any of the hotels in this area, so close to the airport. Overall, I was very happy with it and found the rates reasonable. We will definitely be staying again.

We stay at RRI's all over the US and always enjoy friendly staff, reasonable price and clean rooms. We found all of it at this - recently renovated - Inn. However, the bathroom was anything but clean. Dark hair in the tub (nobody in my family has dark hair), mold on the bathroom ceiling and blood stains on the toilet bowl. I checked in very late at night and was tired. I am disappointed. I was promised a phone call by the manager.... so far still waiting.

Stayed two nights this week catching up with old friends who live in Albany. We had a double double room with fridge and microwave. Room was quiet, clean and with nice flat screen tv. Only problem we had was finding the hotel the first night as it is set back from the road behind trees which of course were still in full leaf. Very friendly check in and check out staff.

Looking for just a one night availability for a reasonable price and Red roof did the trick.
Nothing fancy. A clean room, great front office personnel, location close to transportation and plenty of nearby eating establishments. And a good cup of coffee from the office in the AM.
Overall I would stay again without hesitation. and with their change to non carpeted flooring for pet friendly environment, it was exceptionally clean.

I stayed there three nights for business. The rooms were very clean and bed was comfortable and shower was great. The value was extraordinary. The location was perfect; near access highways, restaurants and shopping. Staff was exceptionally nice and very knowledgeable of surrounding areas.
I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you have to stay in Albany area , check the Red Roof Inn first.
