We needed a place to stay for one night after arriving by Amtrak. Didn't want to spend $140 a night, which seemed to be the going rate in Albany. We wanted to tour the NY State Museum before our train left at 4:00 the next day. After reading reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to take a chance on the Econo Lodge. Took a cab (don't take Capital -- a ripoff). The next morning the motel manager called a cab for us (half the price of the first one) and we stored our luggage at the train station, then took a bus downtown. Worked out very well. I did take the advice from tripadvisor members and asked for a room in the back building. The room was very nice. It was large, had a fridge, micro, & coffee maker, and was clean. Guy at front desk was pleasant and helpful.
