Red Roof Inn Albany Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

2 of the 4 days we were there, they didn't make the bed but still took the tip. Put a bad taste in my mouth. Won't be going to another Red Roof Inn again.

Room needs maintenance - lightbulbs were out and bathroom wall and tub were deteriorated. Front desk staff was chipper and pleasant. For the price it’s a safe bet with easy access to the expressways and area.

The office staff and housekeeping staff were very friendly. Please note this is a MOTEL, not a hotel; rooms are accessed from outside.

One bed looked like they just put the covers over the bed without even smoothing out the sheets. The tv refused to work. The toilet ran all night. We had problems getting the iron to work. People were smoking on the floor we were on. Police were on the property, called either for or by other guests. Front desk staff were not very helpful or friendly. The outside appearance looks like a rundown sleazy motel.

First of all. We did not get 2 double beds like it was reserved with. My 17 year old son and I ended sleeping on the same bed. Also, the hair dryer did not work at all. It was loose from the wall. The toilet ran all night and was noisy. Finally and the worst part was the tremendous amount of cigarette butts everywhere and the terrible smell of cigarette smoke as we passed several of the rooms. I'm sorry, butt it will not be my choice of hotel again.

There was no fridge in the room, no hair dryer, and an employee was smoking a joint on the elevator

After checking in to my room and getting ready to go to bed, I noticed "crumbs" of some sort on the sheets. Went to the second bed, and honestly I am not sure that the sheets had been changed. It was only one night, but clean sheets shouldn't need to be questioned.

If you just need a place to stay quick, this is your place. Comfort, quality.... not so.

Inexpensive for the location but we'll designed and renovated . It's a motel but for the cost it's clean well laid out with large flat screen fridge microwave full desk hutch work area Oh and the shower great water pressure Uber massaging but. They need longer shower curtains or to lower the curtain rods

Staff was friendly. Room was fine for one night stay. No complaints.

Bummer no coffee maker in room. No microwave. Hard when it's so cold to get up and go to lobby to get hot beverage

Used to frequent this hotel as it was a good bargain, very clean, and in a good location. The last few times staying here the rooms were not clean, saw some repairs that need to be made to the facade of hotel, and most importantly room. 1 towel in room, for 2 people. Will not be staying here again. Like my title says, you get what you pay for.

Convenient location close to many restaurants and the airport.

Had to change my room bcuz bathroom was dirty n nasty. Got new room and it wasn’t much better. Pubic hairs on toilet n hairs on floor. Was to tired to go get new room. Will b last time I stay there.

The front desk lady was nice efficant and thourogh. Speedy friendly check in experience. Location was okif you have a car. The low score is that I had is found a roach in the bathroom and a flie on the bed.

This experience was dirty and smelled like smoke. The bathroom was extremely dirty and we did not even want to use the showers. The sheets had "crumbs" in them.

This was a nice clean hotel they put us in the back where it was quiet

Very nice front desk guy. Clean room. Strong mold smell from bathroom. It was okay for one night since it's close to the airport. Close to Olive Garden and gas station.

Our room's floor was sticky and covered in hair and dust bunnies. I didn't feel comfortable putting my toiletries on the bathroom counter because it was dirty too.

Great room, although could use a little maintenance. Noisy bathroom fan & towel rack fell off the wall.
