Great Weekend Trip

Overall we had a wonderful experience at the Albany Econolodge. The room was very clean it was very easy to check in and check out. The staff was friendly, and the room was very roomy with a decent sized bathroom.

Average Stay

This stay was average. Breakfast was good it consists of cereal, bagels, donuts, muffins, coffee, juice. Everything was fresh and begins at 6:00 AM. The room size was average, had a tv, coffee pot, hair dryer. Pretty average, would probably stay their again in a pinch.

Inventory stay

The hotel is very convienient to the highway. The room was a little shabby and in need of some TLC, but it was clean and overall a good value if you are only staying a day or two.

Not like the pictures

The location was convient for us. We were very disappointed with the cleanliness. The place is run down and needs repairs. We would not have stayed here if the pictures showed the true look of the hotel and the rooms. There were nicer hotels in the area for a cheaper rate.
