Great place to stay

We were greeted by a friendly face. Checkin was a breeze. The hotel was immaculate. Breakfast was great except the choices for a kosher diabetic were very, very limited. They had a gym, an indoor pool. The grounds were manicured and the location couldn't have been better for our purposes!

Highly satisfactory

Everything went perfectly well at this hotel. Very close to the SUNY-Albany campus and a few minutes drive to various restaurants; a few miles from downtown. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Pool is big enough to swim a few strokes across; no hot tub.

nice one-night stay

We (me, wife, 2 girls) stayed here one night recently. We got a suite, which was excellent. My wife and I had one room; the girls had the other room. The rooms were clean and modern. Each room had its own large TV. We swam in the heated indoor pool. My wife used the exercise room. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. They even had pancakes. The staff was very friendly. This was one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had.

Friendly, Clean and Comfortable

Stayed one night after spending the day in Saratoga (30 minute drive). Clean and comfortable hotel set back from the street. Staff friendly (Jafar was very welcoming on our arrival) and helpful (TV remote did not work, staff came immediately and resolved issue). Room was a bit crowded; too many pieces of furniture crammed into one space. Ample free parking. Fitness equipment and small pool. Hot and cold breakfast was outstanding, a very nice surprise. Great value.
