Convenient location and well priced

I stayed at this hotel with 3 other friends while visiting some fellow SUNY Albany Alumni. The hotel is very close to the campus which was convenient. There are other closer hotels but this one was the cheapest. The hotel was new and very quiet. We got a noise complaint when we were being fairly quiet so if you are looking to party this isn't the hotel to do it at. The staff was extremely nice and gave us a complimentary razor, shaving cream, toothpaste and toothbrush but I suggest bringing your own shampoo because the one they have is pretty bad.

Clean, comfortable, good location

The HI Express was very clean and comfortable. Everything promised in the advertising was delivered, with a surprise cookie bar in the evening. Highly recommended.

This HI Express is somewhat hidden from the road. Watch for the 99 Restaurant, then start looking for the entrance.
