“Over and Above the Call of Duty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel in the past but this year I was not able to attend the event that is scheduled right next door at the Event Center. My friends took my dog to the dog show, cared for her and showed her, too. They are staying at this hotel. Might I add that it is a very dog friendly place to stay.

I wanted to do something special for my friends. I called the hotel front desk and was greeted by Kristen Fravert. I had some ideas as what I wanted to do for my friends and Kristen went way out of her way to make it happen!! We both had a great time figuring out the surprise and Kristen pulled it all together for me. What a fun and inventive person! I just know the surprise we worked out was so appreciated by my friends :) Kristen did not have to do this, but she did so that her guests were treated right. Kristen is AWESOME and I want to give her a big shout out! she is definitely a plus for this HIE and will go out of her way to make her guests feel like they are very special.

Excellent review!

Thanks should be in order for your friends to take on the responsibility of caring and showing your little pup at the Albany Fairgrounds. I sincerely hope you placed and hope your pup was able to have one of complimentary doggie treats we had in the front lobby as well!

Our agents pride themselves in customer service and it doesn't surprise me that Kristen went above and beyond for you. She is an excellent part of our great team and she always is looking for things to challenge her. We thank you for the review and hope to have you at our hotel in the future!

We had a meeting at the Linn Expo Center and the first day we got in the car and drove...HA!! It would have been closer to walk from the hotel to the Center than it was from the Center's parking lot to the Center!! The 2nd day we walked!
Very convenient to the freeway, too.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a great review!

Being a literal stones throw from the Linn County Expo Center is just one of the few conveniences that we have to offer here at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Albany. I'm glad that you had a good laugh when you got there! We hope to see you soon the next time to need to take "a little walk"!

We stopped in Albany during our transfer from Seattle to Eureka. The city doesn't offer so much but the hotel is convenient, easy to reach from the exit of Interstate 5. The staff are friendly and very welcoming, the rooms are clean, quiet and spacious, with every amenity. Breakfast is included. Honestly, after more than one month since our came back we haven't yet understood why we stopped in Albany but all in all the hotel is a good place to rest.

The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Upon my arrival the desk clerk quickly greeted me an had my room keys and check in do quite fast. I aske for dining recommendations and Greg was able to tell me the cuisine at each restaurant in town. He was up to date on the the menus. The room was clean and quiet, very important.

Stayed here one night near the end of a three week road trip. Our room on the ground floor was clean and comfortable. The fact that the hotel was dog friendly was great. The location of the hotel is convenient to I-5. There was also a restaurant just across the parking lot that was a nice place for dinner. The hotel is also adjacent to the Linn County Fairgrounds and there is easy access to the fairgrounds. For these reasons, we'll definitely be using this hotel in the future when we travel for dog shows at the fairgrounds.

Great review!

We always appreciate the responses we receive from our guests who have tried our hotel and have found it to be just what they were looking for! We certainly look forward to seeing you again during the many dog show events that happen at the fairgrounds (conveniently located right next to our hotel!) throughout the year.

After a long drive, this place was a pleasure to stay at.

Large rooms with a decent king size bed (pillows could be a little better), with adequate bedding, fridge and micro. Nice tv, and plenty of storage space.

The amenities area was very nice with a great pool and hot tub.

Not a bad cont. breakfast in the am and we were off.

I do recommend this place.

pleasant stay with clean rooms and no fuss. we stayed here as an alternative to staying in a place in eugene, or for the ducks game because all rooms were booked. this location is an hour north of eugene.

they accept pets (a plus in our books), they offer a simple continental breakfast, and make it easy to check in and check out.

spacious one king bed room and bathroom with a nice flat screen.

Thank you very much for the review!

Having two great universities in the Willamette Valley during football season makes it a little tough to find rooms on game days. I'm glad you decided to try us out. We dedicate ourselves to making each guest feel great after a day of cheering on their favorite teams, and hope to see you again in the future!
