This hotel is a nice simple place. The rooms aren't fancy but are nice, especially for the very low cost. The beds are comfortable (at least for a long-weekend length stay). Even if the decor may be a bit dated or old-school hotel looking everything (counters, sheets, towels, blankets, table) has always been clean.
The hotel has just recently bought a new wireless system with repeaters. The front desk staff was very knowledgeable when we had trouble getting connected with it at first. After that we could connect most of the time. When we couldn't we weren't sure if it was a connection, device, or bandwidth issue. Always had 1-2 bars.
We always enjoy the breakfast. There's basic bread, bagels, cream cheese, english muffins, butter, jelly, doughnuts, muffins, 2-3 cereals, milk, OJ, coffee, and tea. There's 2 toasters and a microwave so multiple people can prep what they want at once. The breakfast materials is our from 6-9 and the staff is great about keeping everything stocked throughout the entire time.
The location is fantastic. It's easy to get to off of 87 and is right near the Colonie Center Mall and all of Wolf Road. This gives lots of options for meals and shopping. There's several gas stations, that aren't over priced for the area, between the hotel and the highway too.
The other point I'd like to make is about the staff, who are very kind and helpful. The main gentleman, Bob, is always happy, smiling, and courteous.
