TOLD US WE HAD TO VACATE OUR ROOM A FEW HOURS AFTER CHECKING IN DUE TO A WATER MAIN BREAK. WE WERE TOLD WE WOULD NOT BE CHARGED. FIVE MONTHS LATER THEY POSTED A CHARGE WITH MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY. I CANNOT SPEAK TO ANYONE BECAUSE THEIR PHONE IS NOT IN SERVICE. THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY SAYS I AM RESPONSIBLE BECAUSE IT IS MORE THAN 60 DAYS SINCE I MADE THE CHARGE. PARKER INN SUCKS

We arrived at the Parker Inn and Suites on a deserted street in downtown Schenectady at 10:15 pm to find the front door locked. I could decipher a phone number shown on the front desk for after-hour services. I called that number and the attendant said he would be down in a few minutes. He gave me the code for the keypad which I entered and heard the click opening, but then it was still locked. I waited outside ‘til he appeared in shorts and a tee-shirt. I asked about parking there on the street which he said you could do until 8am. Being from California that was sorta early. When I asked about free parking he provided me with some convoluted directions. I asked if he could maybe show me and he said I should try it and call if it didn’t work. I tried it and it didn’t work. He came around, we parked and he lead us to a locked building, entering with the same keycode, through a 1930’s arcade to another door. We went in to the front desk and registered. He didn’t have a king bed as we had booked, only queens. He said he was there on-duty twelve hours and on-call the other twelve hours. Checkout time was 11am and he would be there. He gave us keycards to our room, but they didn’t work, so he had to be called and come up with a keycard that worked. Next morning when we went to check out at 10:30 the front desk was unattended. So I called to tell him we were checking out, my friend refused to come again at any later date and I wanted a refund for the next Sunday, giving him my e-mail address and asking for a return message. I have not heard back, so I plan to dispute the charge on my credit card. The hotel was definitely misrepresented. In my opinion, perhaps it could settle as a flophouse but nothing above a 2 star accommodation.

First, we were concerned about the number of people sitting on the curb in front of the hotel, then the front door covered in dirt and fingerprints. We walked in and there was a sign on the desk that advised us to call the phone number written on it for service, and a young woman standing in the lobby who informed us that the guy working would be down shortly, and she was done with her shift. After about 10 minutes we called the number and left a voice message stating that we were hoping to check in. We never heard back. Them someone came in from the street and said they were working on the addition, and called the number and talked to the guy to notify that there were customers waiting. We waited another 10 minutes or so before he finally came down, looking like he may have just woken up. He didn't tell us anything, just handed us the key, which by the way was in a dirty, old looking envelope. We showed ourselves to what could have been a quaint old elevator but actually seemed to be on its last leg. Found our room after walking through a dirty hallway that was in disrepair, including the large holes in the ceiling. Walked into the room that was also dirty- everything was filthy- the bathroom including mirror, sink, counter- which was as far as we looked, the bedroom floor needed vacuuming, don't even want to consider when the bedding was changed. The view of a roof covered in pigeons and their poop was not the most pleasant view available, no doubt. We felt unsafe there, which says a lot since we live and work in Syracuse which is very crime ridden. Worried about touching anything in the room, worried about our safety if we went to sleep, worried about walking to our car. We left after about 5 minutes. Gross. This place should just close and reopen when they get themselves together.

The hotel is understaffed and locked at night. The area is not safe. I saw three drug deals go down on the street looking for their parking lot. They say they offer free parking but that just isn’t true. Street parking available for free during the evening and weekend is NOT free parking that should be advertised as an amenity.

I thought I made a reservation for 2 rooms in May. I realized I never received confirmation/booking nor email. I tried calling the number listed and it is "not in service" . Strange. Booked another hotel.

Sadly, this hotel is having real problems. I arrived at about 8pm on the night of my reservation. The front door to the hotel was locked and no one was at the front desk. I banged on the door and waited around for a while - no sign on the door and the phone number on their website is disconnected. I went to the Hampton Inn next door to ask if they knew anything - they told me I was not the first person to have this problem. The said they think it's a scam - that the hotel doesn't staff the desk after 3pm. Honestly, I'd love to give my business to a small, boutique hotel, but...I couldn't pick up a key, I had no way to stay there. Fortunately, I booked through Hotwire - they tried calling the hotel, found the number disconnected and so they immediately refunded my money. The next day, I went to the hotel in the morning. The door was unlocked, there was no body at the front desk but there was a hand written note on the front desk (which you can't see from outside) saying "text this number if you need help" and providing a code to the keypad at the front door. I called the number and the guy said that someone was a "no show" to work on the night of my reservation. He assured me I wouldn't be charged, but otherwise seemed not to fully "get it" that they locked up the hotel and left incoming guests with no way to check-in. I really hope the management of this hotel can get their act together - it sounds like they only recently reopened after covid (and under new mgmt) but...if guests can't check in, it's going to pretty hard to stay in business!

Like other reviews, we have not been able to reach this hotel. We have called and emailed. We also tried via contact screen and it doesn’t work. We never received an email confirmation and there is no option on line to manage our reservation. We need to cancel as our plans have changed but are finding it impossible to reach them. It sounds like this is their MO which at best is bad business and at worst a ploy.
