“needs updating, but not bad at all”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We decided to take a staycation close to home with the grandkids. 7/19-22/14 After reading the many bad reviews for this hotel I was pleasantly surprised. We had a kitchenette: which was great for the kids. We didn't have to eat out much.

The pros: the comp. breakfast was excellent, I slept like a baby on their bed, an indoor/outdoor pool and the staff were very nice. We were also close to the markets and a park for the kids.

The cons - the 2 burner stove didn't work, they had to replace my coffee pot and they could use some cosmetic updating. The water pressure in the toilet wasn't very good.

You can't always rely on a lot of the bad reviews, because everyone has different taste. All in all we had a great time and will do it again next summer.

Had to come to Albany for work at Albant Medical Ctr. Got in at 9pm. Checked out at 6:30am. Price consistent with at $69 hotel room not $160. Incredibly worn. Giant 1 1/2 inch centipede crawled across counter as I tried to blow dry hair. Nightstand light had big cobweb with spider on it I had to kill. If room cleaned well it wouldn't have been there. Dirt, debris and small trash on floors in corners and between bed an nightstand. Mattress was comfortable however and front desk staff nice but again the quality was very poor and would have been expected at a much lower end highway motel. Am breakfast eggs were as powdered as you can get. Rather pay less and avoided the breakfast. Will spend much more in future to stay somewhere more reliable. I should've listened to earlier reviews but forced to stay here bc not many other options with Justin Timberlake in town.
