Comfort Inn Albany / Glenmont

Reviewed June 15, 2013

I spent a night at this hotel as a stopover and the location was very convenient as this hotel is less than a 5 minute drive from I-87 (the back of the hotel overlooks the highway) and only a few minutes from downtown Albany itself. The room itself was fine with nothing to complain about. The room did seem a little old and the bathroom was a little musty, but it was fine for a one night stay. The breakfast was quite good and had a nice selection for a complimentary continental breakfast, and it even included a waffle iron. It was perfect for a grab and go before hitting the highway. The breakfast attendant was also very friendly and helpful!

Thank you for a very nice review of our hotel! It is so much appreciated that you took the time to share your experience here at tripadvisor. Our hotel is indeed a little bit on the older side but we are planning a major renovation in the next few months. This renovation will bring all new rooms and public space as well as a new restaurant, bar, and meeting rooms. Please think of us again in the future and you will certainly not be disappointed!

I spent 3 nights at this hotel recently on a business trip. It is an older property that could use a little updating. The sink is beside the room door with the bath and toilet in the actual bathroom. It has that old motel smell about it. Staff was friendly and the room seemed clean as far as I could tell,. There are a number of restaurants near by in both Glenmont and Delmar. The hotel has a bar and restaurant that actually was fine. The hotel seems to cater to construction workers and truckers. There is a free breakfast every morning that was more than adequate. If I had business close to that location, I would probably stay here again. By the way, it is very close to downtown Albany.

Room Tip: I would request a room closer to the lobby area.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your stay at our hotel. While it is true, we are a bit older of a hotel, we feel that cleanliness and excellent service will go a long way. Please continue to choose us while in town and over the next few months you will see quite a positive change around here, as we have a major renovation plan in the very near future! We think that the renovation, coupled with a new management team will dramatically improve your perception of us. We can't wait to see you again!

This is one of two hotels in Glenmont just outside of Albany - just minutes by car from the Empire State Convention Center. I was there for two nights and had a different room each night - both King rooms. One was a King room on the first floor and the other was a King Suite on the second floor. Both rooms were great. Both rooms had a nice sized fridge and microwave which was handy.

The King Suite on the second floor was great - the room was large with a big work area, flat screen tv, king bed and sofa. There was a smaller room with a door that had another sofa, I think they both pulled out, as well as a flat screen tv, small desk, fridge and microwave.

Complimentary breakfast had a nice selection of items including waffles - but I only usually have coffee for breakfast so didn't try it firsthand. There were always several dinner selections in the restaurant which was convenient and many local places also deliver to this hotel.

Only negative is the tv has only local channels...but the wifi is free and fast.

Room Tip: The suite is a great space for the money.

The hotel smells on the inside. We did not have hot water for the shower in the morning. The staff came to my room to check the hot water situation and said while it wasn't hot, we could still take a shower. In addition, the heating unit in the room is very noisy and irritating. The staff did not care that we were not satisfied. I will not stay at a Comfort Inn again.

Clean hotel with a decent complimentary breakfast (particularly the waffles) but the decor is aging somewhat. Also the staff is not the most effective I have ever seen but they are nice enough. The hotel has a bar but when we tried to go at ten to ten, we were told it was closed.

The rooms have a fridge and a microwave but no dishes.

If they changed or cleaned the carpets in the main areas, updated the room decor (the 90's have been over for a while) and ensured the staff was a bit more efficient, this would be a great place. On the plus side, this hotel is clean and quiet.

We stayed for 3 nights just to explore the area (Saratoga, Catskills) and found the room was clean, large and pretty well maintained. The only complaint we have is the bathroom desperately needs to be updated...or at least painted! The pool and jacuzzi are both pretty small and were overrun with children all 3 evenings. The breakfast is exactly the same stuff you find at most Choice Hotels: eggs (processed), sausage, bagels and other breads, cereal and fresh fruit. However there is very limited seating and we had to take our food back to our room to eat each morning. All in all, not bad for the amount of time we actually spent in the room, which was pretty much just to collapse after full days of hiking and exploring.
