“Shabby but not chic...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Let me start with the positives: Staff was polite, helpful and nice. Bathroom had a new counter. Price was affordable.

Now the negatives: Stained sheets, all air vents had a thick layer of dust, bed was uncomfortable and probably fairly old. Armchairs were stained and dirty looking. Floor was vacuumed only in the middle, corners and hard to reach areas were dusty.

Overall the common areas were clean, but furniture and overall appearance was shabby.

I will not stay here again, even if it means paying more or traveling a little farther.

I stay here every time I come home visit my family! The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is so polite and warm. The breakfast is excellent there. And the best for last is their pillows. I love how you fall asleep as soon as your head touches the pillow. This hotel is fair better then the Belvedere which has no pool no breakfast and very few cable Chanel's and costs more. This place has everything and more. Stay here you won't be sorry!

We stayed at the Quality Inn in Schenectady from WED, July 25, and checked out the 28th. What a wonderful surprise we got upon check-in. Let me first say that the staff has always been friendly and helpful to us whenever we've stayed there but the property itself had been in need of repairs. NOT SO ANYMORE!!! It looks to have been completely renovated, and staff were all over the place making sure everything was to the guest's satisfaction. From the owners to the clean-up crew, it was 100% great....if I were to mention anything negative at all it would've been that the bathroom was extremely small and one had to go between the toilet and sink or toilet and bathtub so the door could be closed. But not being in the room much at all, it wasn't a huge issue just worth a mention. The beds now have beautiful summer-like comforters on them, (however the mustard colored and the double beds have 3 good sized pillows on them, which the staff places nicely. OK, it's not that important but for the sake of appearance it was well noted. The TV's are now flat screen. All in all the room was really nice and I don't think the cleaning folks missed anything when they came in every day. The breakfast room has been moved from a tiny room to (at least) part of the former restaurant located next to the lobby. Breakfast is done up right, with eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, bagels, juice, coffee, etc....cereal, etc. We always stay when we go home to visit family and friends.and as I mentioned, it wasn't horrible before but the improvements are fantastic!!!

Room Tip: The motel has no elevator so if you need something handicapped accessible please make sure to get a...

Since we had a late start on our way to Cape Cod from Canada we stopped in at the Quality Inn in Schenectady It wasn't too far off the highway, and pretty easy to find.
The staff there were very friendly and helpful with directions to the resturant we wanted to
go to.
Since we booked on line, we got a accessable room, which was near the lobby. The room was very clean and the beds were really comfy which is always a bonus. They had a nice breakfast with a large assortment of things. The bathroom was a little different with the counter being so close to the toilet seat, was difficult to sit down without hitting your chin on the sink counter, but other then that we had a great night. There was a nice pool there which we didn't have time to use, but it felt warm enough to want to get in.
Will use this hotel again on our next trip down.

Ive stayed here twice; once in July/August 2010 and another time just in May 2012. This is where my family usually stays when visiting relatives in the area. The room is overall clean, although there were a few stains on the carpets. The employees are very accomadating, as they gave me soap when I went up to the front desk at around 9:00 pm. The free breakfast is fantastice as they have donuts, sausage, waffles, coffee, etc. The second time I went they had a new breakfast room, which has a very cool design. Every time I stay here the hotel looks very familiar and it has that "home-like" feeling. I will be staying here again and am exspecting another great stay.

I've had very good luck in the last year or so with Choice Hotels, but this is one you should skip. It's old and stinky. The corridors and lobby smell like an outhouse. The room smells like an ashtray left in an outhouse. Head on down the road and find something better.
