We have stayed in Fairfield Inn for a few times (in other states) & they were all decent ok, but not this one in Albany (University area)! It is extremely old & no decent lobby. The room is very dated & old, & worst nightmare was that I got bitten by fleas (or bed bugs)!! It wasn't serious but bad... More

This location has become my Albany hotel of choice. A bit outside downtown but easy access to the highway, the property is predictable. Comfortable, well lit, good wifi and room service. Breakfast in the morning included. Both hot and cold and fruit and coffee to go. It does back up to the highway which I never found to be problematic.... More

We stayed for a night on our way to Boston. Very clean, nice shower and washroom. Breakfast was great, quite a few hot items. There was also a good sized pool but we didn't have the time to use it. Very friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel.

Even though this Fairfield has been around for a few years now, it has since been remodeled and everything looks modern and clean. The staff was very very friendly and willing to do whatever it took to make our stay great. The rooms are nice and clean and the bathrooms were a nice size. Location is excellent, right by the...

We were part of wedding group who had reserved a number of rooms. Through a mix up on the part of one of our group we booked 95 yr grandmother in room with her daughter in a single sized bed! This was not the hotel's mistake but they worked very hard to get them moved to room with two beds.... More

Good service and after asking for a quiet room the staff gave us a great quiet location. The staff helped us with a carryout pizza menu that worked out good. The room was clean and modern. The breakfast area was busy and we waited for a table-more area would be nice for a busy hotel. We would stay here again.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and decided it was a good location, as I was attending a Bridal Shower in Saratoga Springs. The price was reasonable with my AAA discount. When we first pulled up, there was a spacious parking lot in the front. When we walked in, we immediately smelled a mixture of a musty odor and... More

This was a last-minute pick for one-night stopover. Very convenient to NY thruway or Rt 90. 2 queen beds comfortable, bathroom clean. Mini-fridge and microwave (which actually had extra ports to charge mobile devices). No safe though. Free breakfast was good enough. Nothing fancy but solid choice for stopover off highway.

We arrived exhausted and hungry, and the front desk fellow was a hero! Got our room right away (and for a great price), and he sent us off in the direction of the perfect restaurant. Great value, and very comfortable and clean.
