The strike plate of my door was not the correct plate. It had been re attached by a single screw and the dead bolt did not work. The proprietor said it had been kicked in by the FBI and not to worry because he watched the motel on video all night...Needless to say I did not sleep very well. Was... More

If you need to stay over, it's cheap and it does the trick. I didn't find my room to be unclean, but I'm not very picky, although I didn't see mold or smell odors or anything like that. I don't recall a continental breakfast, either.

Our stay here was great. We came into town to visit a family member and needed a quiet place to stay that was nearby. The first thing that grabbed our interest about this hotel was their competitive pricing, so we decided to book a room here for a couple nights. The service was excellent and they supplied us with the... More

Stayed in Scottish Inn Albany last night. Staff insisted that we paid more than quoted price. (Not tax) Room really smelt of vinegar for some reason. Room had been cleaned at a glance, but not with any enthusiasm. Corners had build up of dust, toe nails and hair. Bedsheets were clean, but they smelt a little of smoke. Other customers... More

I was very upset after I pressed the Button on Hotwire and read the reviews of the Scottish Inn. I called Hotwire to complain and they told me that Hotwire Guarantees a clean room within a clean environment. Next I called the location and the manager assured me that the reviews were incorrect. He was right. Except for lack of... More

Staying in this hotel was a nightmare. When I booked a room I asked for non smoking, but when we arrived a manager in very rude manner told us “take it or live it, we don’t have non smokers here”. There was a smell of urine coming from dirty carpet and AC unit, also half empty bottle of soda on... More

Seems most others shared the same experiences---wish I knew beforehand. Not like pictures I have seen advertised. Needed a place last minute for one night. Only nice thing was linens seemed clean, although not high quality and not mended well-but didn't expect the best. TV worked ok. Noise in room upstairs most of stay-even could hear talking in shower!

I could not fathom the question the manager asked of me when I asked to view the quality of the room first. He asked me, "Please don't destroy the room"? Now mind you "I" have never stayed at this motel before, and I should have chosen a much better place to stay for a night. I room was atroshous to... More

I basically concur with the past few reviews though I've seen worse. It was listed as a two-star but didn't even have shampoo. Tissue holder apparently had been empty since 1983. The bottom step of the stairwell leading to second floor was propped up with wood and bricks. I wish I had a camera for that one. I forget the... More
