I stayed here for a class reunion. Rooms are clean. Showers hot. Tons oif TV channel's. Had no problems at all. You can walk to get a bite to eat. I love it here for the lowest price in Albany. For those that said its awful.....stay in Portland.

This place is horrible. The room was disgusting, there was duct tape on the door, water damage on the walls, paint flaking off of the shower floor and drug dealers or prostitutes in and out of the room next door all night long. I'd rather sleep in a dumpster.

When me and my sister were going through Albany, we read the reviews of this place and we were extremely worried. However, being tired and wanting to just find a place we decided to try out this hotel. It was late, probably like 2 AM and a korean man checked us in. He checked us in quick, I guess he... More

There's a run down trailer park behind it. The riffraff from there hangs out in the motel parking lot or their constantly walking through while checking out vehicles.... More

Every scale has a low end and this place has that locked up! The check in went smoothly although they did not want me to use my AMEX. On the way to my room there was a recliner sitting outside in the breezeway. The room smelled old and musty. Stains on the chair fabric and carpet. Holes in sheets but... More

I was warned that the Korean owners do not really return deposits, but thought it was a racist comment and tried it out there anyway. It is true. The lady tried to blame us for breaking the springs on a beat up chair that was already broke when we got there. She screams at you to "listen, listen please" but... More

This hotel is a dirt bag place. Do NOT stay here. Half is rented to low lifes and the owners do not care. This past weekend, while moving my disabled son to University we booked. My daugher and THREE year old grandson went ahead to this place. After check in to a room that was so run down, dirty, cracking... More
