“Nice stay!”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I recently stayed here just for one night on business. Although the surrounding area leaves a bit to be desired, the hotel itself exceeded my expectations. The lobby is small but efficient and the front desk clerk (Paige, maybe?) was very kind and friendly during check-in.
I thought my room was great. It is very spacious and most importantly, clean. The desk is large wth a comfy chair if you need to do work. The sitting room is basic but pleasant and there are 2 flat screen TV's with alot of channel options. (one in living area and one in bedroom)
The bedroom is spacious..no complaints. The bathroom had a nice, clean, hardwood-esque floor and a spacious, VERY clean shower/tub. The only complaint regarding the bathroom was that my toilet seat seemed to be broken or off-kilter, which was mildly annoying.
There is not alot of counter space to spread out products, make-up etc, but there is storage underneath the sink.
Overall, I thought this was a very nice hotel and would stay again if I visit the area on business.

Reviewed 10 July 2012

I traveled with my spouse and 3 teen kids. We stayed in a 2 bdrm suite. It was a pleasant, problem free stay. The suite is large. Two queen bed rooms, one of which has an ensuite BR. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The second BR is accessible to the living quarters. Sofa bed worked well for a large teen (sisters shared the 2nd bdrm). Individual controls for the temperature in the various rooms. Coffee in the room in the morning. Dishwasher for the assorted glasses/cups. Lots of hot water for the many showers. Good internet connection for quite an assortment of computers, all at the same time. Breakfast is basic - but probably what you would do at home (no hot eggs). Parking free. We walked to dinner (10 minutes, Justin"s) which was nice.
Shopping at the outlet mall was 45 minutes. Soccer at Clifton Park was 30 minutes. Other shopping centers were easy reach as well.
Overall a good trip, reasonable rates and a nice hotel.
Late check out was provided with a smile.

Room Tip: A very good suite hotel.

Stayed one night with a great last minute bid rate through Priceline. It's a no frills suite room but seemed fairly clean. The free continental breakfast was actually much better than we expected. It was very close to the NYS thruway which was exactly what we needed for the night.

Reviewed 27 May 2012

I stayed here for business and although the staff was very polite and worked to get me a good room, I changed once then checked out. In my opinion, the entire two buildings smelled like cigarette smoke and the noise from the suites above was very distracting. I could not get to sleep so the front desk clerk was accommodating and moved me to another room in another building but it was almost as bad with the smell. The second room it felt like the fridge was going to fall over and the drain in the sink and bathtub would not drain. The breakfast was adequate but nothing special. I was very disappointed...

Room Tip: Definitely go from a room on the top floor and stay away from the entrances

Although graduation weekend it was still pricey. The rooms were average and a bit dated. TVs were nice tho a little small for the ro size. Also disappointing to ask for later checkout and be told no without asking how long or Marriott status just needed 30 more minutes. Breakfast was fine nothing special and staff was polite.
