Motel 6 Albany

Reviewed June 14, 2014

Rooms recently updated. My problem with this type of Motel 6 format is there are NO carpets on the floor! Get beyond that and it is an okay property. The best thing about my stay was the customer service. The new manager is Beth and she is fantastic! Very outgoing, friendly and helpful. Kate on the front desk is also terrific! Wish they would upgrade the WI-FI speed and add more cable channels.

In the evening of November 04,2013 at about 6p.m. after attending a meeting, I came back to the hotel to find no one at the front desk. There was no one there to challenge anyone who walked into the hotel this leads to an unsafe environment. There was also a heavy cigarette smell in the hall way even though the hotel is supposed to be smoke free.

I stay in lots of hotels and found this Motel 6 to be clean and comfortable. The check-in was fast and efficient. They building and grounds are well maintained and the checkout was effortless. Overall a great place to stay.

This motel was a reasonably nice Motel 6. It had been recently refreshed, and the room was spacious and clean. The desk clerk was friendly, and they had a microwave in the lobby, which was nice. Otherwise, it was a pretty typical basic motel--not fancy but decent. The location was convenient to downtown Albany and I-90. Overall, it was a good motel, and I would stay here again if I were in the area.

I'm rather shocked to read what some people are saying about this location. We stayed here for one night recently and were reasonably satisfied. It was a standard, renovated Motel 6. Nothing more, nothing less. No horror stories to tell. We did overhear at checkout someone in the manager's office mention "police coming to your room". We laughed at that on our way out.

Ok, I have been staying here for years when I visit Albany because they accept my dog and its convenient to highway and a good cab fare to Lark St. Yes, I was met at the front door where a housekeeper was out smoking (bad start) and yes they have had many shady people stay there, and yes I wouldn't recommend it to my friends and yes the rooms had deteriorated so bad I wouldn't walk barefoot in one of them, but now I was in a freshly re-done room, everything including a new flat screen tv worked well and carpeting has been replaced with new hardwood easier to keep clean floors. The price is certainly the best rate in town and I slept just fine for 2 nights in a room near the front desk. Check in was perfect! I still would hesitate to bring a family there, but fine for me and the dog. Hope they can maintain it! (should make it all non smoking, a couple cigarette burns in the bathroom already...geez!)

Room Tip: I still would stay away from the back especially if you are a single woman. Just saying.

Motel 6 on Watervliet Ave. was reliably clean and great staff. Very conveniently located. They recommended a nearby cafe that was quite good. Ate wonderful salad there, but can't remember the name, left, left, right at t-intersection, immediately on right.

Room Tip: Face the rear parking lot and hillside, not the street.
