3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We arrived late and found booking as expected. Desk staff were friendly. Room was clean, however it did smell of smoke especially in the bathroom, although it is a non-smoking room. For an overnight stay it was fine.

My son just began attending a nearby college and we were hoping to find a clean, pet-friendly hotel close to his campus. We found it at the Red Roof Inn. The front desk staff was courteous and friendly; the location was easy to find (well, besides the entrance being behind some trees) and there is plenty to do/places to eat all very close to the hotel. The room was a bit on the small side, but more than spacious enough for an overnight stay (or two). Really appreciated the newly-renovated floors and I liked that the rooms opened to the outside, which made it a lot easier with the dog (rather than having to bring him through a lobby area). Also, the lawn area in the back to walk the dog was great. The bathroom looked a little dated but was clean and the water pressure was great/water was hot. The beds were also very comfortable. They almost enticed our son to stay at the hotel with us, but it was a Saturday night, so he opted to go back to campus! The only downside was the jets flying low overhead, but this would be true for any of the hotels in this area, so close to the airport. Overall, I was very happy with it and found the rates reasonable. We will definitely be staying again.

We stay at RRI's all over the US and always enjoy friendly staff, reasonable price and clean rooms. We found all of it at this - recently renovated - Inn. However, the bathroom was anything but clean. Dark hair in the tub (nobody in my family has dark hair), mold on the bathroom ceiling and blood stains on the toilet bowl. I checked in very late at night and was tired. I am disappointed. I was promised a phone call by the manager.... so far still waiting.

Stayed two nights this week catching up with old friends who live in Albany. We had a double double room with fridge and microwave. Room was quiet, clean and with nice flat screen tv. Only problem we had was finding the hotel the first night as it is set back from the road behind trees which of course were still in full leaf. Very friendly check in and check out staff.

Looking for just a one night availability for a reasonable price and Red roof did the trick.
Nothing fancy. A clean room, great front office personnel, location close to transportation and plenty of nearby eating establishments. And a good cup of coffee from the office in the AM.
Overall I would stay again without hesitation. and with their change to non carpeted flooring for pet friendly environment, it was exceptionally clean.

I stayed there three nights for business. The rooms were very clean and bed was comfortable and shower was great. The value was extraordinary. The location was perfect; near access highways, restaurants and shopping. Staff was exceptionally nice and very knowledgeable of surrounding areas.
I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you have to stay in Albany area , check the Red Roof Inn first.

I booked this place based on price, location (near airport) and amenities (free shuttle and in room coffee) as we just needed an overnight stay before catching our flight home after vacation. We drove in from the Cooperstown area and arrived earlier than expected. They were very accommodating and had a room well before normal check-in times. Within the first 15 minutes on site, I was impressed with the friendly staff. Every single person we passed or came in contact with on our way from the lobby to our room spoke to us, asked or offered help. The room itself - nice surprise. Clean, clean, clean! Nice sitting area with desk for a bit of computer time. I like that the floors were not carpet, but solid surfaced, laminate wood type. Room had been recently renovated and kudos to the design staff because it made for a very enjoyable last night of vacation! Comfy bed, A/C unit ran all night but that was most likely my fault for not taking the time to figure out the settings. Good place, nice positive impression for my first ever stay at a Red Roof Inn.
