After staying at other Hotel's around the Albany Area. And doing some comparison, we have come to a conclusion that Howard Johnson is the Best. When it come to a place away from home.

Overall nice, bathroom could have been more clean with attention to details. Internet was slow. Room service did not speak English. Bed was a little hard.

I've been a guest here for many years now when I come to Albany to visit family. It's convenient. It's easy. It's close to everything. It's comfortable enough. The air conditioners work great. Breakfast is good. The owners are nice. Check in and check out only takes a minute. And you can't beat the price. Add some feather pillows and... More

The room was dirty. Needed toilet paper in bathroom..... Very old facility which is in need of refurbishing. Pass on this one... However, the attached Italian Restaurant was pleasant. Would not return to this establishment

So disappointed in the customer service! Arriving back at the hotel my door was open! After notifying the front desk I was directed to contact the manager in the morning... She apparently already reviewed the tapes by the time we got to check out and stated that housekeeping closed the door. But when asked if she saw me use my... More

Stayed for a night. Bed sheets hadn't been changed . My girlfriend cleaned for an hour with Clorox wipes. Bathroom fan hadn't been cleaned in a long time and was humming all night. Outdated bed spread. Won't stay there again. Was embarrassed to book there after stay.

Good motel with well maintained grounds & pool with a very service oriented, efficient staff. Rating is lower due poor sound insulation & noisy guests nearby who talked until 2:3 AM. Metal entry and bath doors closed with effort

We had 2 non-smoking rooms facing the courtyard. An older property but the grounds were very well-kept, with a big pool that our kids loved. Rooms were big, clean, and comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was typical for the price range. Having stayed in many area motels in a similar price range, this was the best. Nice Italian restaurant... More
