Clean, Classy, Convenient, and Comfortable.

The decor isn't dated, the room looks nice and very well kept and very clean. They have nice televisions and there was a microwave and a refrigerator (which you usually have to pay extra for in other hotels). Not to mention the free breakfast which makes other hotels free breakfasts look pathetic. They had so many options and everything was great! Also, the location is great, close to many great restaurants and theres a mall and a movie theatre right down the block! I will definitely stay there again.

Wonderful mini vacation!

My family and I enjoyed ourselves immensely! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The indoor pool was wonderful, heated to perfection. The free breakfast buffet was delicious! Definitely will stay here again! Will definitely tell all my friends about our experience here. :)

this is a two-star hotel

Ordinary, plain two-star hotel. Very inexpensive, wide variety of restaurants a few miles away.

Albany best western

It just would have been nice if the carpers, chair upholstery and sheets seemed to be regularly maintained, not to mention ripped bed skirts needing to be replaced and not just super tucked!! Otherwise it was an okay stay. Have to say though, this was my first , and trust, last stay at a best western.
