I spent one night in this hotel and was displeased with the cleanliness and lack of accommodations in the room. According to my reservation I should have at least had a hairdryer, but did not. The bath towels were small and very worn looking, and
the bathroom was also very small. The carpeting was nice. The walls were very thin and I could quite clearly hear the noise of neighboring guests, which was quite distracting. This hotel is worth it if your looking for something cheap, but I would advise spending a few more dollars in order to have a more pleasant stay.
The bathtub had rust spots, and nasty under the bath mat. The walls had spot where paint had come off. They did state they were remodeling, but they should not even have people staying in rooms like this. Poor experience overall.
Very attentive, helpful, and friendly staff. Room was attractive, clean, and comfortable. Convenient location to SUNY Albany Campus, and highway to go to Troy for girls' basketball State Tournament. Close to eateries.
Hallways are an
unattractive green with dark doors.
Signs stated that hotel was being redecorated.(?)
I WOULD stay again because I may continue to visit the SUNY campus.
I stayed with my 3 children on our way home from a long trip. We were exhausted, and the quick check-in with the friendly staff was most appreciated! The room was clean and comfortable and the price was right. It was just what we needed.
Staff was very friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Room, halls, elevator, lobby, etc. all showed signs of their age. Well worn, but clean. SUNY Albany was literally across the street. Very convenient. Would stay again.
It was, generally speaking, very good value for money. I needed a place to sleep before and after the Irishfest. Since I was going to spend almost all my time at the festival, I didn't need a lot of frills when it came to the hotel, as long as it
was clean and safe, and the Red Carpet was excellent in that respect. I just wish they'd made the beds when they came in to switch the towels
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Crossgates is just up the road, and it's right by the U of Albany campus
We found the room to be nicely furnished. We were surprised to find a King sized four poster bed. The upholstered bench was wonderful for holding open suitcases. The traditional decor was tasteful. The bathroom had a few cosmetic issues but
everything was clean and in good working order. Although the room had a refrigerator and microwave, it did not have a coffee pot but coffee was available in the lobby (as well as doughnuts in the morning). Very nice for the price!
