“You get what you paid for!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I wondered if they ever vacuumed the carpet,,very dirty carpet but a nice size room..Long strands of hair in the bathroom also dust everywhere..Dated room but large..Bed was ok..Pool and nice courtyard, some guest were enjoying their morning coffee in the courtyard,, they need to cut the courtyard grass more often..Very very friendly front desk lady..Nice location..I only need to sleep for a few hours and for the price it was ok..Seemed to be long term guest staying at the motel.Also a lot of activity during the night..Not sure what was going on...

Stayed at HJ in Albany in June and was pretty shocked with the place. Rooms themselves were very date and smelly and the surroundings of the place were worn out and dirty. Rooms were not serviced at all during our stay and breakfast was free available in a tiny room and provided on disposable ware. We had two rooms with a junk room in between the two rooms. The only fortunate part was the pool even though my son cut his hand on the poolside due to rough finish of the surfaces. We moved on after 2 nights to a much better and actually cheaper place.
Never to be repeated.

Room Tip: none to recommend
