Excellent place and location to stay when you are visiting the university of Albany

Very comfortable stay and a great shower bath to get you refreshed after a long drive. You should call in if you are going to be arriving after midnight.

Convenient to university. Breakfast was standard but good.

Just very convenient location from the road, clean, good breakfast, pleasant soft bedding.

Clogged bathtub. Hard beds and pillows. Unappetizing breakfast.

This hotel is good for overnight stay which includes breakfast.

Quick and easy check in and check out good amenities

Easy place to stay for a quick night in Albany. The room was spacious and clean, and the check-in staff handled my late-night check-in very quickly, which I appreciated.

Pros: Good bed Nice shower (but the drain was left closed which my son did not appreciate) Nice location Good breakfast, scrambled eggs and sausage were good, but the was honeydew underripe Cons: Two dirty pillowcases, luckily there were more pillows than we needed. Still, knowing some were dirty made us uncomfortable. Empty water cooler in workout room

Slept well, the beds were comfortable. The room wasn't the cleanest as we found trash under the bathroom sink and around the beds. Linen appeared to be all clean.

It is centrally located to anything you need. Relatively quite. Staff is excellent. They were remodeling when I was there but all amenities were still available.

I was pleasantly surprised that a hotel so close to I-90, UAlbany and the major arteries in and out of Albany proper could be so quiet! I stayed one night prior to an exam. Breakfast was typical waffles, eggs, coffee fare. Only negative about the stay was I learned that my door did not lock upon exiting the room. I informed the staff and they immediately resolved the issue with me present in the room. Would definitely stay again.

I was disappointed with our accommodations at Fairfield in Albany. We stay at this hotel chain often and this was not the normal Fairfield that we're used to.

I come here 1 year for the wrestling States at time Union center

We arrived rather late. The room was ready, check-in was quick, room was clean, breakfast was good. No problems at all. I would stay here again if ever in Albany.

I will admit, the staff is just friendly, courteous and professional. I would definitely go back there when the occasion arises. Thank you.

Everything as expected, located close to the University so expect a lot of kids on school trips staying over night, overall good one night stay.

Staff friendly. Room clean. Comfortable beds. Many options at complimentary breakfast.

Most people might imagine that a holiday is one that is placed on a calendar and celebrated by everyone. This trip for me was an anticipated holiday a nice reward at the end of a work week. The staff at this hotel are warm and friendly. I enjoyed meeting them and speaking with them. The rooms are well decorated and welcoming. The only thing missing from these fine rooms would be either a microwave or refrigerator. That would be my only suggestion, not a complaint. If I return to Albany in the future I would plan to stay there again.

It was a good experience . The water in the pool could have been warmer. They did not have the jimmy dean sandwiches that were advertised.They charged me an additional 20 dollars a day
