We nearly always stay at Hampton Inns but had points for a free stay. We found the room to be quite nice and clean and the staff to be friendly. Interestingly, I had read a review where a customer had a non-operable toilet. Ours did "break" but it was just the chain coming loose and I quickly fixed it myself.... More

I stayed here for a week on a recent business trip. I picked this location because it was value priced compared to other Albany properties. The hotel is located on a ridge. Rooms facing the front of the hotel have a lovely view of downtown Albany. Even if you don't manage to get a room with a view of Albany,... More

The property was clean and offered comfortable rooms and they were clean. Front desk staff was very accommodating. It has a nice view of the Albany sky line. It is priced fair for the location. My biggest plus is the sports bar on property. Great for a drink and food without getting in your car.

I traveled to this location this past week. It was only for a one night stay. When I arrived they had to double check that my room was clean, even though I was checking in after 4 p.m. I only stopped in my room long enough to drop off my bags and did not return until much later that evening....

Front desk staff were most helpful. Upon arrival to my room, I noticed that there were chunks of food all over the carpet, apparently not had been vacuumed. The bathroom was totally disgusting. The grout on the tile floor had turned black in some areas, the bathtub doesn't come clean anymore as I tried myself. There was also mold forming... More

Holiday Inn Express is very good. Front desk, breakfast and room rank high. Ate at the sports restaurant and had a 10% discount. Just mention it at the restaurant. As an IGH member, I got upgraded and a view of Albany!
