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!

I've stayed here a few times on the way to Saratoga for the races and it's a perfectly fine place to spend a night or two. Nothing spectacular, but it's clean and cheap, which are high on my list. Will stay again.

We were going to Saratoga for the Whitney and I had only enough reward points for this hotel for one night. I was not sure what to expect. The lobby was nice, clean and the staff were very helpful. The room was a king bed with good WiFi and the standard amenities. There is a trend I am seeing were... More

I have been staying at the Econolodge in Colonie for work. Not only do they consistently beat the prices everywhere else the staff go above and beyond to be helpful, welcoming and friendly. I stay from Sunday to Friday weekly and I have yet to get a room that isn't clean and welcoming. When I request specific things like a... More

This is a very convenient location for visiting Albany. It takes about 15 minutes to down town Albany, where you can visit the Empire State Plaza, the museum, the egg, the Lark Street and the Palace Theatre. For shopping, it only takes 5 minutes. This hotel is clean and comfortable, worth every penny.

Hotel was old and cleaning is not sufficient. Room and sheets are smell bad. To be good for guest, carpets need change or at least wash. The hotel rank is economy price ward but not livable. I stayed at Econo Lodge hotel in Corning NY for the same price, it was too different by this one.

Spent the night here while attending a concert at SPAC. Don't expect much, but the room was clean enough and the bed was comfortable. The management was very friendly and nice during the checkin/out process. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants a place to sleep and not much more.

Stayed here one night and glad for it. Rooms are pretty worn out. AC didn't work properly. Did not cool well. It was the cheapest, so we got what we paid for. But will not stay again unless they do some renovations. It was relatively quite. Breakfast is what you would expect in a lower price place.
