Stayed at Red Roof Albany Airport 3/19/2021. Was exhausted so just came in and fell asleep. Got up the next morning at 5am as I usually do. Got ready to take a shower only to find hair stuck to the wall under the faucet and edge of tub. SO just washed in the sink. Gathered my things went to check out asked to speak to manager who at that hour wasn't available Fine, told the guys at check out my situation. No response. I took pictures sent to manager. He offered 1/2 room refund. Fine that works until it hits my bank and it's taken back so no refund. When all said and done here is manager quote "I’d rather you chose someone else on your next trip." Been a rewards member for over a year, stayed at that particular place MANY times. Stay at your own risk and cleanliness just don't cross the manager!!! My room was fully refunded just to let everyone know.

You have stayed with us many times without incident, I’m very sorry this last time had an issue with the hair. We are generally speaking a clean economy option and we outperform out direct competition locally because of that. We can have an occasional miss though and in that case compensation and an apology is warranted. This was my first couple emails to you but after you kept talking of crushing us with the Health Department, BBB, and corporate offices I did say that maybe we weren’t the place for you next time. I was giving you a full refund regardless of any threat as I was genuinely sorry you had that issue and it wasn’t adjusted properly after the fact. I wish you the best in your future travels

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel every year on our way to our summer vacation spot and we've never had any problems. This year, I think Covid is making it really hard to keep employees. That being said, Donnell was amazing. He came into our room and cleaned and even got on his hands and knees to get a leaf that had blown under the bed. The manager, Derrick, was also helpful and personally inspected the room before we decided to stay. I hope a vaccine is found soon and I hope that next year's stay will be less eventful.

Another good stay at the Red Roof in Albany. Always a pleasure to deal with Janet the desk clerk. They no longer had the coffee or water and maid service was sporadic but I guess that’s the times we’re in. Thanks guys!

Room 134 was nice but I started noticing BUGS crawling around the floor and wall a couple hours after I checked into the room. So I thought to myself --- why are so many bugs in this room? I didnt have any food laying around. So I kneeled down and saw what you see in the photo --- a large one-inch open gap under the door! Apparently the weather-stripping wore away and they never chose to replace it for this room. So any creepy insect can crawl right under the door and into bed with you! I killed a large spider, June bug and two cockroaches. Why is the management just ignoring this problem? I don't like sharing my room with insects and I bet nobody else does, either. FIX THIS PROBLEM in Room 134 !!

Hello, I can confirm this review is accurate and I apologize. I was not aware of it but confirmed it and we have maintenance taking care of it today. We do try our best but we can miss things, so guests should never feel shy to let us know if they encounter any issues like that as there's plenty of solutions. Thanks for letting us know

Wasn't able to stay. The lobby was disgusting. The person behind the desk with 2 girls hanging out, no one wearing a mask. They had a dog running around the lobby. I felt very uncomfortable and unsafe. I asked to cancel and they said I had to call where I booked. Could not get anyone to be able to get my money back. DO NOT BOOK THIS PLACE!

Sorry to hear of your experience. I can understand your position. We have a real friendly desk staff and sometimes guests will end up hanging around for a bit or come down to chat and sometimes that can make people uncomfortable, especially when a dog might be involved. I will discuss this with my clerk just so he can see another perspective. It's a line we have to toe as I also like that those guests feel that welcome. We/I certainly have no intention of keeping anyone's money that doesn't want to stay. If you have any troubles getting a refund, please reach out. Unfortunately at any hotel, if you PREPAY through a 3rd party like Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc, you have to go through them to get the refund. They will give it every time but they will just call the hotel desk to confirm. Again, if you have any troubles though, let me know.
