Quality Inn Central

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The check in guy was very rude and gruff just gave our room key card said your room is around the corner and up the stairs.That was it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No info on breakfast no saying thank you nothing this guy was brutal. Room was so hot we had to sleep with window open.Cover for thermostst broke off

Business trip. Except I had a problem with the nasty old man at check in. I had an Orbitz reservation which somebody lost, but the guy could care less. The Morning desk girl was delightful.

The bathroom smelled like cigarette smoke all night long and it made my granddaughter sick all night. She vomited twice and was up crying most of the crying. So no I didn't have a great stay. When you book a nonsmoking room you don't expect to smell and see cigarette smoke all night long. The lady at the desk basically told me I was a liar . I don't lie and my son was with me and he smelled it as well. So I have been staying at this hotel once a year for about 12 years but I will never stay here again after this experience.

Why pay more. Everything was quite nice. good free breakfast

Positives-The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. Negatives-The room was very cramped and the bed leaned back towards the wall so it was a uncomfortable sleep. Also the walls were paper thin and the crying children across the hall could be heard all night. We have stayed at nicer for cheaper.

I needed a refuge from an oncoming snowstorm and this was the closest hotel to my destination. After reading reviews I was wary, but took the plunge. I was pleasantly surprised! Clean room, pleasant staff. Yes, it's noisy in the morning, but hey, it's a hotel. Lots of people coming & going. When I checked in, the fridge was running & cold & the heat was on. Loved the pillow-top bed, but could use larger pillows. Only complaint... the cleaning staff leaves the window wide open to air out the room. I came in exhausted and didn't notice because the curtains were closed. I fell instantly asleep & woke up freezing lol. The control on the heat just spun in a constant circle, so no real control. HOT water in the shower with a shower massage head made up for that. Would definitely stay again. Very worth the cost! Every other hotel on that street is a filthy dive, so if you must stay in that location, Quality Inn is the ONLY choice.

Queen size room very small. Overall stay was nice.

Was conveniently located for me. I was on a business trip and spent little time, but I enjoyed their breakfast which was decent, for the price at least. There was someone at the front desk all the time, they were courteous and helpful. Overall, positive experience.

Clean rooms, Good quality for the value.

Clean. Swimming pool to small for lap swimming

We have booked some great hotels at the same price...this one was not as nice as the pictures...and was in need of some TLC. Our whole floor was supposed to be smoke free and it reeked of smoke. The pool was small and uninviting. Nothing great about this hotel at all. The staff was nice and helpful, but I am sure there is a better option for staying in Albany!
