“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2010

I had a really good time at TownePlace Suites. The room was spacious with a living room and a little computer workstation. It was clean and well maintained. The staff was very helpful and prompt. I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it.

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom appartment. Appartment and space inside were ok. If you're on business, I guess this is a good place to stay. On holiday with 4, it's a different story. It's outside the centre; they have a small swimming pool which is practically on the parking lot, so not too nice to sit there in swimming shorts; breakfast is, well, not good (but there is a donkin' donuts nearby; no restaurants nearby. But on the other hand, very cheap, so overall good value for money.

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review about our property.

Our guests are entitled to use an indoor swimming pool at a sister hotel while staying with us if our outdoor pool is closed for the season, the weather is bad or any other reason they would prefer a different pool.

We agree that our value stands out against our competition and pride ourselves in our cleanliess, room size and staff service.

We hope to have you stay with us again soon!

We stayed (husband and I with his sister) just recently. I actually booked the only two bedroom suite and found it to be smelling of urine. The staff were very nice about moving us to a joined one bedroom units. The hotel unfortunately smells of the various food dishes that guests make and the bed is like a big bowl. While the hotel itself is in good shape - I just wouldn't recommend it or stay there again.

These include having an outside vendor install additional air purifiers, re-training our housekeeping staff on how to combat odors and changing the vendor who provides our air freshener.

The suites are big I loved having my own bedroom and still being able to watch after my kids. I wouldn't travel at any other hotel in Albany, the price for the 2 room was less than other hotels for standard room with 2 beds that were right on the same road. It's a bit older but it works perfect for our family.

My family stayed here for one night while visiting family in the area. The location was convenient to shopping and restaurants. We had reserved a 1 bedroom suite and the telephone in our 1st room had no dialtone. THey upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite which worked perfectly for our family. The furnishings were not brand new but everything was in good shape and very clean. I will definately stay here next time we are in the area visiting.

Stayed one night at the SUNY Albany location. No problems. Nice, clean facility. Pleasant staff, ample parking (shares space with Fairfield next door). We had a One Bedroom Suite which features Queen bed and a sofa bed (didn't use, but it would probably just about abut the queen bed if opened. Full (though small) kitchen, good-sized fridge. Room furnishings are on the inexpensive side, but every was clean and fairly new looking. Free Buffet breakfast was ample. Would definitely stay again at this location. We had our one yr old granddaughter with us and had plenty of extra room for her playpen.

The rooms were clean but the furniture was a little abused. Our dining table was so shaky I was afraid my handicapped mother would fall if she leaned on it. The two bedroom suite was average. We all would have appreciated having two bathrooms in this two bedroom suite as we have had in other chain's two bedroom suites. There also was only a television in one of the two bedrooms of the suite. The breakfast area was small and could not seat all the guest who showed up for the breakfast buffet. My family and I had to get food and take it back to our rooms to eat. The breakfast buffet was average - nothing special with frozen french toast you had to toast yourself. They did have waffle machines. If you are looking for all the little extras or luxuries they are not here. If you are looking for clean, basic, value priced suites - that is what you will get.
