We stayed here for one night. The lobby was welcoming. I had a slight wait for the person to come and register, but someone was manning the office and contacted the registrar as soon as I entered. Our room was on the second floor, which wouldn't have been our choice for one night, but it worked. The room was huge,... More

Booked this for my annual Labor Day trip to Cooperstown and a Tri-City Valleycats game. 6,000 points and $15 for a room. Was pleasantly surprised, room was very comfortable and the shower had great pressure. Room did have a slight odor of stale cigarettes but figure it may have been a smoking room at one time. For the price and... More

Used the Hotels coupon book, got a great rate of $59.99. Check in was easy, room was super clean and spacious, nice charging ports at bedside table, continental breakfast included. Cereal, toast, bagels, fruit, coffee, tea. Nice clean area of hotel lobby to eat in.

Cheap rate, but I guess that's what you get. Rooms were dirty. Girl that checked us in was just lounging around on the couch with a friend and seemed as though we were bothering her. Had been traveling all day and just wanted a place to lay down. Fire station right across the street with the loudest sirens, so don't... More

Our bed was comfortable and the pillows were good. The room was clean and it was a easy check in. The hotel is on a busy street, but lots of places to eat close by. There is a mall about 8 minutes away. A little scary coming up the stairs at night, but there are cameras all around. There is... More

We just needed a place to sleep the night before an early flight and didn't want to spend a fortune. The Econolodge was clean and affordable. My husband and I, unfortunately, found our bed to be quite uncomfortable. Everything else seems to have been updated, but they need to spend a little more on the beds. We were located near... More

The owner of this place can go to hell. My husband called to see if there was a "coupon room" which there was, but when he showed up at 11pm, all of a sudden they were VERY BUSY. The owner was there and I guess he just could not bear to lose his 20 dollars. We did not stay there.... More

Eight nights/eight hotel/motels in New England area, this was my least favorite. The check in clerk hardly acknowledged me. I felt I interrupted something. It is in need of upgrade. We stayed at EconoLodge in two other cities that surpassed this one by far.

We stayed here a year ago, and returned again for 5 nights in late July. This was during horse-racing season in Saratoga, when most Albany-area motels jack up their rates, but Econo Lodge stayed reasonable. Nothing fancy and the rough-looking narrow parking lot might be off-putting to some, but our room met all the basics. Housekeeping skipped us one day,... More

Although our room was dated; it was also clean & provided for our needs. We ended up here as the hotel next door (Quality Inn) apparently didn't want our business. The customer service was excellent at this hotel & also cost less than their neighboring hotel, too!
