Look elsewhere

Disappointing, shabby, very tired hotel. My nonsmoking room was musty, the carpet was stained. Had to unplug the alarm to make coffee.

No Frills but Excellent Value

The main reason to stay here is, unquestionably, the excellent price. For what you pay, it's hard to complain: there was no notable dirtiness in the rooms, they are spacious, there is free wifi and parking, a respectable enough restaurant on lobby level for one's convenience, free breakfast, and the staff is excellent it must be said. For well under $100 a night, that's not shabby at all. Now is it a beautiful place that I would recommend for honeymoons? No (and who would be honeymooning in Albany anyway?), but for a normal business trip to Albany on a budget, the value here is hard to beat. You are a bit out of the center, however, so a car rental or cab will be necessary. If you were planning on that anyway, it's a very short drive to the center and hardly a big drawback.

Needs updating

This was one of the dirtiest hotels I've ever been in. The hallways smelled of urine. The room was as clean as they could get a room that hasn't been updated since the 80's. The windows were filthy and wouldn't open. The bathroom/plumbing was awful. The sheets seemed clean but very old. The bed was comfy and the breakfast ok.

Business Trip

I went to Albany for a business trip and picked this place because it was close, while the staff and very welcoming and polite the stay was still pretty uncomfortable. The building was visibly falling apart and filthy, the pillow cases in my room were dirty as were the towels. Also they stressed to us (my wife & I) at the desk how we would be charged if we smoked in the room (we don't smoke) but when we got to our room it smelled of smoke and also the bathroom smelled moldy. On the plus side I appreciated that breakfast was served til 11 and the pool was nice.
