Recent guest reviews

We stayed overnight with kids during vacation travel. It was a quick overnight stay and we were really happy with the hotel. The facility was fresh and clean. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was a little nicer than some other places' included breakfast. Rooms were comfortable. Overall, very happy and would stay again!

Hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff was over the top friendly and helpful- highly recommend!

It was great, clean and awesome staff. I went alone and staff made me feel safe.

We were greeted by a friendly face. Checkin was a breeze. The hotel was immaculate. Breakfast was great except the choices for a kosher diabetic were very, very limited. They had a gym, an indoor pool. The grounds were manicured and the location couldn't have been better for our purposes!

Hotel was so clean smelt nice and the breakfast was so good and to s of choices. Only complaint is the swimming pool. It is not made for adults. The deep end is only 5 ft 8 inches deep and the length wasnt long at all. However with that being sad id stay here again.

Everything went perfectly well at this hotel. Very close to the SUNY-Albany campus and a few minutes drive to various restaurants; a few miles from downtown. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Pool is big enough to swim a few strokes across; no hot tub.

stay was excellent, breakfast was good, room was spotless.

Very nice hotel. We especially liked the breakfast, and the room was really quiet.

It's where I stay when I visit my college boy. Very accommodating staff and I recently got an upgrade due to my many visits.

The staffs are friendly. The breakfast was decent. Only the soap provided in the hotel rooms could be better.

The beds & pillows were comfortable & the room came with a 'frig, m'wave coffeemaker. What more could you expect! Bkfst was great & the staff was friendly & helpful. The hotel was quiet,too. My daughter & I settled in to relax & then had an ice cream urge-they had Ben & Jerry's available in their store. Perfect!!

We visit our family in Albany every year in October. and always stay at the Holiday Inn Express Western Ave Albany. It is a very comfortable and the Breakfast are very good. Thank you very much.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. Perfect location just across from the University--and right between Starbucks and Five Guys, to boot! Spacious, bright room--clean enough that I thought I might have been the first to use it. Big bright bathroom. Free wi fi, free parking, free (full) breakfast. They had an impromptu free barbecue for guests one afternoon. Incredible pantry/gift shop with freezers full of microwave dinners and gourmet ice creams. Will definitely stay there again.

The hotel was very pleasant ,clean and staff was very helpful.

From the moment we walked in the place, our stay was pleasant. The staff was friendly, informative, and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable, and new. Would recommend this hotel.

The hotel was a great value for the money. New, clean, and comfortable. There is a great breakfast - fruit, eggs, hot breakfast meats, pancakes, assorted breads/breakfast rolls. Free USA Today was a great perk and the 24 hour "convenience store" in the hotel was nice. We also enjoyed the work out room. The staff was really nice and helpful. The only complaints we had (and why the hotel received a 4 not 5 star rating) was that the shower wouldn't drain properly so that was annoying and that the AC was super loud and clunky (we were in room 440). Also it was annoying that the pool was closed. Otherwise everything else was really great and we would stay again, especially considering the great price and the newness of the hotel.

It was very easy to find. At check in the guy was very nice...asked if I had a floor preference (I am pregnant) and then hooked us up with a room right near the pool. My son loved that and I liked not having to walk a long way! Room was great...very up to date. Only complaint is that there was not any information about the area in the room. Usually it is on the desk. Pool was small but warm and area was clean. Breakfast was awesome...lots to choose from and my son loved the Pancake maker! Only stayed the one night but would stay there again if needed!

Our experience was as good as the previous ones. Very clean. Love the breakfast. Great sleep. Lots of places to eat just to the west at Stuyvesant Plaza. Cool shops

Nice location for visiting CNSE also resturants, fast food, gas, Starbucks within 1 mile. 10 minutes from Airport.

I have stayed here & at other hotels near SUNY Albany. I left this time saying "I'm not even going to bother looking at other places to stay!" This hotel is conveniently located near campus, the room has everything you need-'fridg, m'wave , it is spotless & has a nice pool. On top of that, the staff is helpful & the breakfast is by far better than any of the other continental breakfasts. I definitely recommend it & will return.
