“Good value for a budget hotel”
Reviewed August 3, 2009

Stayed here during freshman orientation at UAlbany and was pleased with the friendly staff, clean rooms and complementary breakfast. For a budget hotel, this place was perfect and very clean. I'd have given it a 5 star rating if the hallways didn't have a funny smell. Once you were in your room you didn't smell it, but while you were walking to your room there was a distinct odor, like a cleaning solution, that was very strong.

On the upside, it was close to the university, shopping, dining and again was clean. A good place to stay for a night or two if you are passing through.

Stayed July 2009, traveled as a couple

Have stayed in Days Inns previously on route elsewhere. Just looking for somewhere to rest on route to New York City. Room looked ok until visiting bathroom, pubic hairs on toilet seat and in bath! In twin room, one bed unmade. It was rather late when we retired to bed after going for evening meal. Complained at reception on checking out, was given 50% reduction in our room rate. Out daughter stayed in another room, where everything was ok. Perhaps our experience was a one off, lazy cleaner!!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from May 23-24, Saturday to Sunday. We were in town for a competition just up the road in Colonie. There was actually another Days Inn in Colonie but after reading some reviews and looking at prices we opted to drive the couple of miles to this location. The reception staff were welcoming and informative, check in took all of 3 minutes, and they provided us with a cable for our laptop to connect to internet and a tube of toothpaste that we forgot to pack. We were pleased to find a decent sized room, in great condition and clean. For work purposes I have had the pleasure of going through several bed bug trainings and needless to say I gave this room a thorough inspection, including flipping mattress, looking into cracks and crevices and moving furniture. I am happy to report that the room was spotless, free of bugs and anything else you might expect to find behind a dresser in a motel. The location is good, very easy access to I87/I90, shops, gas, and also right across the street from SUNY Albany. If I find myself in that area of Albany again I will be booking a room at this location, for the price ($69 for a Queen size room with continental breakfast) I had NO complaints.

I stay here often. Rooms are always clean. Front desk is always helpful. Room rates are very reasonable. Not far off the Rt. 87/Thruway. Plenty of restruants in the area.

We were visiting the UAlbany campus. This is right across the street and very convenient. While not the greatest motel we've stayed in, it served it's purpose. The place was quiet. The bathroom was clean, the beds were comfortable and the room was more than adequate. The breakfast buffet was a little lacking (cereal, juices, coffee, muffins, fruit), my son was looking for something a little heartier. But again, saved us from going out to hunt around before our tour. On a scale of 1-5, I'd give it a three. The price was right. If my son ends up attending UAlbany, I'm sure we'll be regulars.

We stayed here overnight (Saturday to Sunday) to attend an event at SUNY across the street. Day's Inn renovated an older motel, cleaned and updated the rooms and offers them for a fair price. The bathroom is rather small but big enough. This is, after all, a two-star accommodation. Gone is the hotel bathtub, replaced by a good-sized shower stall. Water was hot on request, with good pressure. Towels were soft, and there were enough of them for the two of us. The sinktop is new, with one basin, and there is sufficient space for basic toiletries. Shampoo and soap and an ice bucket with plastic cups are provided. There is a large mirror. The room itself was large enough to accommodate a King bed with an end table and lamp on both sides. A small table and two chairs were relegated to a corner. No flat screens here, but the television provided was large enough and had good color, although it was precariously perched on the edge of the long dresser (large mirror over that, too). Furnishings are basic motel-room quality, but not overly worn. Five pillows were provided with the King, but two together was a bit of a strain on the neck. I found the bed a bit soft for my comfort, but my husband slept fine on it. Temperature controls were easily adjusted. A one-cup-at-a-time coffee set-up with pods and supplies are provided. The only noise we heard was the slight murmur of a television in an adjacent room. Otherwise, the building was very quiet, even in the morning when rooms next door were being cleaned. There is a dining room adjacent to the office where a continental breakfast is available from 6-10 a.m. Selections are limited to coffee, tea, cereal, fruits, plain bagels, English muffins (toaster available), apple or orange juice, and small danish. Coffee, which ran out before 9 a.m., was not replenished, and nothing to write home about anyway. There were plenty of condiments, though, including milk, half&half packets, butter and cream cheese, and a microwave is available as well. There is a television in the dining area,. Check-in and check-out were quick. Ice and soda machines are located near a side entrance. Outside maintenance could use some help. A trash can next to the same side entrance, full on Saturday afternoon, was absolutely stuffed when we left 24 hours later. Also, snow run-off from the roof feeds directly across the walkway, so there were many puddles along it. In icing conditions, these areas could be hazardous. The hotel is literally across the street from SUNY Albany. It shares a parking lot with another hotel which has a restaurant attached (a Ground Round in earlier days). There is a Dunkin' Donuts right next door, where several guests purchased breakfats rather than depend on the continental offerings at the Day's Inn. Overall, for the price charged, and for a single night, this was a fair transaction, and we would probably stay there again.

We had a power outage in the area and we were without lights and heat. We were blessed with a wonderful person (David Quadrini) who got us a room that was beautiful , warm, with a great bed, a good breakfast and cleanliness beyond expectations. We were allowed to stay as long as the power was out. Mr. Quadrina was hospitable., kind and provided us with all the comforts of home. I highly recommend this Days Inn .
