I lived in this area for many years and had to move away a year ago. Upon deciding to come back to the albany area, i had to find a job and i chose Microtel to stay while i did that. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Chris, Krishna, Brittany, Emmit, the housekeeping staff were all so nice and accommodating. I had to extend my stay several times. And they were more than happy to do that, as well as make sure i was comfortable. Rooms are clean. Flat-screen tvs. Comfortable beds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stay at this Microtel often as we have a child attending college in Albany. It is a perfectly fine hotel located right off of the Northway. The room is clean, includes mini fridge and microwave oven. I honestly didn't notice a coffee maker and assume there is one. No need if there isn't as they provide a continental breakfast in the morning. Beds are comfortable, sheets a little scratchy, pillows are abundant. Nice flat screen TV. Pets are allowed. The hotel is located near 87, many stores for shopping and a gas station right at the corner. Price is good for two queen beds in our no smoking room.

Room Tip: We stayed on the south side of the hotel and didn't hear any highway noise.

Chris the DOS here, Be it a Quick Stay or Long term guests enjoy 24 hour Coffee and Tea service in our Front Lobby. Awhile back we decided that it was in the better interest in room maintenance and safety in providing coffee refilled regularly by the front desk staff. Thanks for the review.

The rooms are very small, and I mean just big enough for a queen size bed, but that's to be expected, hence the name. A large, cushioned window seat in every room is a nice touch, and a huge mirror behind the bed makes the room feel a little more open.

My biggest complaint is the lighting. It's fluorescent, which I find very strange and uncomfortable. It makes the room lack that "homey" feel. Worst of all, there are no bedside lamps. The only way to turn on lights in the room is to walk all the way across it to the door. This presents a problem if you have to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, as there is no way to light your path.

Only one of the bedside tables had an outlet, which I also found a little annoying, since I use my phone as my alarm clock (the other outlet was taken up by my boyfriend's phone charging).

The website says there's a fridge and microwave in every room, but this was not the case, and we had to ask to be moved to a room with one.

Overall, for a room under $80/night, it was clean and quiet, but it lacked the comfy feel of other rooms I've stayed in in that price range.

Oh, one more thing: the beds were very comfortable, but the sheets on them were not tucked in, I think by design. Because of this they slid around all night and I kept waking up with no covers. This probably wouldn't be a problem for one person alone, but when you're sleeping next to a cover hog...

Hello, Chris the Dos here. I want to thank this guest for such well written assessment of her stay with us. As far as our single queen size bedrooms go, it says it in our name.but fortunately for us we do have an option of Double queen size bedrooms which was made possible by radical renovation to two wings of our hotel seven years ago. All the points of made would be addressed in considering our Double Queen Size Bedrooms. I Invite the guest to call us directly for their next hotel stay and we will provide that Double Queen size bedroom at the same rate a our Single Queen. We hope to hear from you soon.

We were looking for a stay in the Albany and this was highly rated. It’s a bit tricky to find…and to find the office! Room was nice, bed was fairly firm (just the way I like it) clean, nice bathroom, friendly staff. I loved that the doors didn’t slam shut, a pet peeve of mine. Since we didn't need a fridge or microwave we even saved a few bucks there. Room numbers at the bottom of the door frame also showed that they were interested in your safety (so the firemen could see in the event of heavy smoke). Breakfast was the usual, just enough to start your day. Convenient location.

Hello Chris the Dos here, We want to thank the guest for his review. We can appreciate his observation of his difficult in finding the Front Desk. Since our hotel is a U shape , our guests are blinded by one of the wing upon entering our lot to the main entry doors to the Front desk.
We will have to look at the possibility of perhaps adding a sign on that first wing of the hotel they encounter upon their arrival.

We were looking for a decent place to stay near Waterford, NY. This was located about 10-15 minutes away. Check in was easy, staff was polite. We brought our dog and they provided us a room right next to the stairs and access to outside. On our second day, we found ticks in the room and requested a room change. They moved us to the room right next to our previous room. Room was basic and pretty clean. Not really anything to complain about.

Hello , Chris The DOS Here. Thank you for review. With the strange warm up this late winter and Our property surrounded by woods on our dead end street , Yes, you get some quiet but unfortunately The ticks may also had an earlier start from our next store wilderness. Being a Pet Friendly hotel , your request to changes rooms for such a reason will always be politely and swiftly complied to.
