Simple- clean and safe

I stayed overnight, and only saw one staff member my entire stay- she checked me in without so much as a "hello". Upon checkout there was no one in sight. However, it was clean and appeared safe- no one sketchy hanging about. The others I encountered in the neighboring businesses were nice.It was almost spotless, but there definitely were some crusty spots on my blanket. It's a place to lay your head, not much beyond that, but if you can find a deal it's worth it.

good, for its class

Don't expect concierge service and mints on your pillow, but decent sized room and bathroom were clean and well maintained. Room freshener odor was a bit strong, but windows can be opened for ventilation so not a big deal. Continental breakfast was a cut above, with fresh juice and pastries. Very convenient to SUNY-Albany.

A decent place to stay

We were in Albany for an event at St Rose College, so this location was very convenient for that. The room was quite large, but there was no shelf in the bathroom whatsoever for shaving kit, make-up bag, etc. (pet peeve for the woman). The breakfast was so-so, but could have had a toaster for frozen waffles or just plain toast. Most importantly, the room and the hotel in general were clean and we slept well.

Pretty OK.

Made the drive up to Albany for the SUNY Albany Alumni weekend. Needed a inexpensive place to stay that was uptown and close to campus. Perfect match for a 1 night stay. Walking distance to SUNY Albany campus, and walking distance to restaurants and coffee shops.

Hard

The location of this hotel is very convienient for anyone who has a college student attending SUNY Albany. However, my daughter and I feel that the Non-smoking section should be in a separate WING from the Smoking section. The Non-smoking room that we stayed in wreaked of cigarette smoke; most likely from the room above, as stated by the desk clerk that I had complained to upon checkout. A serious concern was the fire alarm that went off at 12:45AM due to smoke in the laundry room. No-one in my section knew whether or not to evacuate the building, and getting through the front desk to ask was time consuming. Safety and communication should be first and foremost; especially at this hour when most people are asleep. The Free continental breakfast was not as nice as several others nearby that offer hot meals-such as eggs, waffles,bacon,sausage...more than likely due to the fact that they don't have a restaurant within the facility. The only "hot" item served here are the beverages. unless you heat your items in the microwave or toaster that is provided. Cereal and Grocery store brand types of cold bagels,english muffins,and danish is offered here. There was only one used newspaper to read with breakfast and most of the sections of it were missing. As for the Fitness Center; it is not a Center but a Room with only 3 pieces of equipment. It was always empty when I went in. I guess because it was in a remote spot which I doubt people knew about unless they asked. The outside of the hotel could use some "sprucing up". There are hemlocks on one side that looked rather unkept with many weeds inbetween. The front office area is too plain and not very attractive or inviting from the outside. This hotel has the potential to be a very nice one-it just needs some special attention to the details. I would recommend this to people who are looking for a rather inexpensive stay with convienience of location and Shopping a plus.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

This hotel is not only situated across the street from the SUNY Albany campus; but it is very convienient to many shops; malls; restaurants; gas stations; food stores and just about anything else you are looking for. It is also just a short distance away from Interstate 87 and several other main roads.
