Clean basic accommodation

Although the front desk and its personnel made us wonder if we had made a mistake in booking this hotel, the room itself was clean, comfortable and pleasant. The location was very convenient right off the highway.

Just Okay

It is in a convenient location but that is about it. The halls are small and low ceilings so it does not have a welcoming feel to it. The breakfast was not very tasty. The toilet in our room was broken so we had work with it to get the water to stop after each use. But, I'd probably stay again just for the value.

What in the world?

We were on a college visit with our daughter and being right across the street from SUNY Albany was definitely convenient. However when our daughter pulled down the comforter to her bed there was some sort of a homemade S&M device made under the covers leading us to believe the linens had not been changed between guests. We requested new sheets and blankets be brought up and when they were we were expected to change them. If we did not have to wake up early I would have definitely looked for another place to spend the night!

Do not bother going to Dibello's down the road for sandwiches. All of the meat on our sandwiches tasted the same! No differentiation between meats

beware of surely Dave

I paid 90$ for what should have been a 50 dollar hotel experience. The good first: mattress was good, room was fairly clean. Negative: no lace curtains, rooms face the parking lot. In the first floor this is like living in the middle of a parking lot. Windows open -- good, but are I guess habitually used for smoking. the whole place has a saturated old cigarette smell to it. It gets worse if the windows are closed.' the wifi works intermittently. the temperature must have been 60 or lower. The air conditioner was blowing hard and cold at 10pm. When I called front desk to turn it off, surly dave said there was no way to do that. -- I was told something different the next morning. So I went to bed with a wool scarf and wool socks, and wool sweater and three --- blankets on top of me. the whole place is uninviting, hallways are stained. But there are a few good restaurants nearby, and of course albany university. The staff in the morning was utterly friendly and breakfast -- for a continental breakfast -- quite acceptable. If you want something more beyond basic and a cleaner air, I suggest you go elsewhere.

You get what you pay for :)

You get what you pay for....the hotel staff was really great, very helpful and friendly. The hotel is cheap, which is what we wanted but with cheap you get what you pay for. The rooms were clean enough, everything was just fine.....nothing special....but we were going for cheap and not amenities. If you would rather spend your money on other parts of your trip, then this is a great hotel to pick.

Decent for the money.

This hotel wasn't that bad considering the low price. The room was clean and the amenities within standard. The location is only beneficial if you have business with the University of Albany. Other than that the location wasn't prime if you are there to get to know the city. The only real complaint I have is that they were doing construction right outside my window and decided that 7 am was a great time to do that. I wish the hotel would have reconsidered their time of day for renovations.

I was in town to check out the local medical school. It was a reasonable distance from the school and offered everything i needed for my short stay within a good budget.

quick overnight for college student dropoff

I have stayed here in the past-good price for a quick stay when traveling from out of state to drop off/ pick up college daughter. First room assigned to me had a strong odor- not sure exactly what it was from, si I asked to be switched which they did without hesitation. Second room was clean & comfortable, staff was very friendly & helpful, especially the college student who worked the evening I checked in.
