Booked online through the hotel website about 2 hours before arrival. Did not receive any emails or calls about the reservation. Upon arrival, the man at the desk took my ID before telling me they did not have a room for me. Why would he take my information unless he was trying to charge me for a room he wasn't...

I stayed here after getting a cheap rate on an opaque site. I arrived on Saturday night, I gave the check-in clerk my name and she says, 'OK, Hotwire has you booked for a smoking room with two double beds.' *sigh* Do I look dumb? That is so disingenuous. I've booked through Hotwire 50 times. On almost all occasions, the...

Stayed here on our way back after a long day of hiking in the Adirondacks. Just wanted something with a reasonable rate and a clean bed/room, and that is what we got! Are the furnishings a bit old and scuffed, yes. Is this the Ritz Carlton? No. In general the room appeared sufficiently clean for a nights stay and it...

The fourth time I've stayed at this property. It's not the Ritz, but it isn't supposed to be. For the price you get a nice clean room located near several restaurants, bars, and the mall. I will continue to stay here when in the Albany area. Also a cheap out of town alternative during track season in Saratoga.

After reading some of the negative reviews I was not excited to stay at this Econo Lodge, but I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! It was wonderful! The lobby was very lodge-like with a giant fire place and a welcoming staff. My room was clean, with a mini-fridge, microwave, great wi-fi connectivity, and a huge bathroom that was fabulous. The area by...

The rooms had a sour, sweaty odor to them. The bedding was not comfortable. The beds were very uncomfortable. The place was not modernized since the 80's. The front desk was not very accommodating. We asked that they provide two rooms next door to each other and they were unable to meet this request even though the parking lot made...

We are the kind of people who are able to overlook minor cosmetic issues such as peeling/chipping paint or a few marks on the wall...in favor of a reasonable rate. ESPECIALLY if the room is clean and staff is courteous and friendly, and that was the case at this motel. Would definitely stay here again if we travel to the...

Didn't look too bad from the outside. Only 4 cars in the parking lot, and a few sketchy looking people hanging around outside. Go inside to enter the lobby and you're greeted by the smell of sweaty socks and mold. Whatever, you get what you pay for right? Okay so now on to the room. You're greeted by a nice...

This is a very good two-star property. Check-in polite and efficient. The room was basic, clean and comfortable. Everything worked. Breakfast area was clean and well stocked. Manager, Bob, is very pleasant and accommodating. Good value for the rate. This is where I will stay when I am in the area again.
