The staff was extremely friendly. I don't think I passed by a staff member without them saying hi and wishing me a good day. Really enjoyed that.

Hotel was quite nice. Staff friendly and quite helpful. Breakfast is pretty good. There are hot options, so definitely better than some hotels that only serve pastries. I'm staying at a hotel while waiting for my new apartment. I work nights and frequently had my Do Not Disturb sign on my door so I could get some sleep during the day. The sign went missing from my door on the third morning, so I'm guessing they don't like you to use it.

the breakfast was more than sufficient and added value to the cost.

Would recommend Wed, Jul 22, 2015
We were in town to visit with my husband's brother (in a nearby nursing home) and to attend a family picnic. The hotel was located fairly close to both events. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was more than ample for our needs. My biggest 'issue' was the fact that the door to the stairs was nearly impossible to open from either side (2nd floor)...this could be a disaster waiting to happen should a fire occur...neither children nor older and feeble adults could easily open that door.. The variety and selection of breakfast items was great...enough variety for anyone...unfortunately, when we went for breakfast, several items were gone and not replenished, e.g. the oatmeal, the whipped cream for the waffles, the scrambled eggs....it did not really matter much because we certainly had more than enough other items to choose from...

Always A great Stay

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
I've stayed at this hotel on more than one occasion, and for good reason! The staff is always very prompt and accommodating. The rooms are always clean. And the breakfast is better than any hotel breakfast I've ever had. They have a great selection. The location is great. There are restaurants, convenience stores, malls, movie theaters, and coffee shops very close by. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Would definitely reccomend

Would recommend Sun, Jul 12, 2015
Had a very pleasant stay and already booked this hotel for 2 additional returning trips .Staff was EXCELLENT, friendly and very accommodating. ( requested a room change bc we did not want to be by the door ) and they changed the room immediately.The room was a nice size, beds were comfortable, and aside from some trim coming off around the windows, the room was super clean ( and I am OCD when it comes to this ) loved having a fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. The complementary breakfast has a nice selection of food is very nice added touch and there is also a DD in walking distance next door. The location is great too, good amount of local restaurants and shopping within 15 minutes of driving ( We were visiting my sons college ) it is 5 minutes from both Saint Rose and Albany U. The pool was heated and clean. ( Steam room was not working though ) There was construction going on in a room off the lobby but did not effect our stay at all. Price for our stay was just in the range we were expecting and we were more then completely satisfied. Hoping our next few stays are just as good as an experience.
