Excellent service for affordable price

For the price you think you are getting a basic hotel. Oh know.... The staff are over friendly and accommodating they go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast is ok, basic but something for everyone. The bed is super comfortable. It's clean and everything works. Wifi and good cable. I rate this hotel so high because of the staff. The front desk staff and the waiters. They made our stay so pleasant. Thank you Ramanda

Would recommend!

Enjoyed me stay at this hotel I was only in town for one night and booked my room fairly last minute through an online booking service. There was a basketball team checking in at the same time I arrived so there was some delay in checking in. However, the room itself was very comfortable, clean, and spacious, checkout was very simple, and the breakfast provided was great. The hotel is also in a good location that was quiet but convenient to Colonie Center, Crossgates Mall, SUNY Albany and Lark Street.

One Night Getaway

The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. They were understaffed however with only one person in the entire lobby doing check in, answering phones, taking guest questions, etc..... and then there was only one woman working both the bar and the restaurant and the service and food were not that great. It was convenient to have the restaurant in the hotel, but if we could do it over, we would have eaten out.

Don't stay here

First problem: we booked a kitchenette since we would be staying 2 wks. We arrived around midnight, unpacked and went straight to sleep. Next day we asked what they considered a kitchenette. We were told we should have a stove etc. We were then given a kitchenette but had to pack and move everything ourselves. Second problem: The toilet was flushing slowly so we called down for maintenance. Supposedly someone used a plunger but there was no difference. Had to be very careful! Third problem: We went down to the restaurant. We were told there would be an extended wait (45 min. - 1 hr) because there was only one staff member working. They were sending guests to other places to eat. Two nights later we called down for room service. We were told the same thing. Waited an hour for our meal. Fourth problem: The carpet in the room was extremely stained. Fifth problem: While the room had two beds the kitchen had pans but only 1 plate and 2 forks (no knives, spoons, bowls,etc. ) We were told by other guests that they would never stay there again.
