We had a nice room in the new building. The room was very clean. The staff was very nice. We only stayed one night as we were traveling to NYC the next day on amtrak for a day trip. We would stay again. It was close to the amtrak station .

Probabably because it was Late and it seemd to be a reasonable Price in the Albany Area. We got there at about 10 pm. The owner(coming straight out of his... More

I read the negative reviews so I was careful about checking out the room. It was clean, new sink and toilet. Wifi, tv, air cond. and heater work fine. The sheets appeared fresh. The room is dated - older furniture, ugly carpeting, but came with microwave and small fridge. It's not fancy or upscale, but adequate for a short stay... More

This motel has nice curb appeal appeal. Very friendly front desk person. Our room was newly painted nice and clean. We had a very nice stay and was surprised to read the negative reviews. The new management are doing a good job. Keep up the good work. I will be staying here again.

Reasonable price, clean, easy access from Columbia Turnpike (US20). Good for a short business trip. Located near shopping and chain dining (dunkin donuts, wendys, burger king) and also local dining. Included wifi was stable and reasonably fast.

Will stay here in the future. Had everything we needed. Close to the train station. Enjoyed the Chinese food across the street. Very convenient. Good Value. Need an elevator in the two story building that we stayed in.

The rooms were disgusting. There's mold in the bathroom, crap splattered on the wall, dirty socks and bugs in the bed. Tequila in the dresser. The carpets are stained. And the rooms smell like crap mixed with smoke and must. The floors aren't vacuumed. The sheets are clearly not clean nor are the blankets and pillows. There was dog poop... More

The rooms were musty and smoky smelling. We found a booze bottle a quarter full in one of our bureaus and a dirty sock in the bed. Food was splattered in the microwave and the floor was CLEARLY not vacuumed. The beds were not comfortable, you could feel the springs. The top bed spread was clearly not washed and not... More
