I was in Albany NY to deliver a transit bus, which is what I do for a living. I had made the reservation earlier in the day and was told the cancellation time was 4p.m., which is not the normal time. I stay in hotels almost every night, I'm not that difficult to please, but this was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at!
Upon arrival, I noticed there were several people gathered around their room doors, "hanging out" and the property looked poorly maintained.
Upon getting my room key, which had to be redone four times because it wouldn't work, I checked out my room. The chairs were stained, the desk had gross looking stuff on it, there were gnats coming out of the sink, the tub was filthy, the sliding window in the bathroom had no lock so for security reasons I put a coat hanger to block it from sliding. The TV had "no signal", I decided to go online and read reviews. I saw one lady had posted about bed bugs, so I decided to look...no bugs, but I did find crumbs and hair in the bed. I went and asked for clean sheets and towels...and changed the linens myself.(I wasn't sure that the towels in the room were clean after finding the sheets had not been changed) I slept little, and got up two hours early just to get out of the room. I took a shower with a towel in the tub so I wouldn't have to put my feet on the nasty tub bottom.
I couldn't find an outlet to charge my phone.....the mattress was old and disgusting, So many things were bad that I can't even remember them all. If I had been in a car instead of a bus I would have left!!!! In FACT, If I had not had a flight today, I would have been better off sleeping on the bus.
Super 8 should be ashamed for having there name on this hotel. I will be calling Wyndhams today!
