“Scary first impression, but ends up being pretty good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

My Dad stayed here for two nights over Thanksgiving 2013. I chose it because we got a good deal booking through Venere, and the location was perfect.

I wanted him to be able to walk to amenities, and there is a Stewart's (like a 7-11 to those not from the Northeast) across from the hotel, and it's only a few blocks from Proctor's theatre, which is in the nicest part of downtown Schenectady.

I booked him a double (two double beds) non-smoking room with coffee maker, ironing board, TV and ensuite shower/bathroom for $135 total for two nights over Thanksgiving weekend.

When we first pulled into the parking lot it was virtually empty except for a bedraggled man smoking a cigarette at the end of the covered entrance. We were worried.

When we checked in we were asked for a credit/debit card that could hold a $200 charge in case of damages to the room. We were worried.

But when we got to the room itself, it seemed large, very well-cleaned, and with some nice touches like packets of shampoo and coffee for the coffee maker. Dad even had a view of the park next door. We had some problems with the lighting at first, but someone from the desk came up and sorted us out in a few minutes.

We were surprised to find a microwave and working mini-fridge in the room. The fridge held no amenities, but it was useful for stashing leftovers that Dad and I gathered in meals out.

Dad was very impressed with the included breakfast, which did not sound fancy or cooked but had unlimited coffee, juice, cereal and so on, enough to stave off a traveler's hunger pangs until lunch.

Due to the price and location, I'd have to recommend this hotel, but don't be freaked out by the shabby exterior.

And don't worry about the $200 potential damage fee charge. They refunded it to my account the moment Dad checked out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

rooms were clean, very difficult to get luggage to room when we had to go up the stairs. while we were there it snowed and the front of the hotel was not clear of snow so we had to drag our luggage thru 18 inches of snow to get out to our car, parking lot was hardly plowed, very glad I have 4 wheel drive vehicle.
