From the moment we walked in the door, we were greeted and made to feel welcome. The personality of the staff and the cleanliness of the facility made this an enjoyable experience, especially Kevin in the dining area. He is excellent at customer service and accessibility. The Laundry experience was EXCELLENT!

The staff were all friendly and helpful. Troy and Lindsay at the front desk met our needs. Lindsay, the manager couldn't have been more helpful. Her southern charm showed. Kevin, the breakfast manager, was at our side before we knew we needed him!

My stay here started off on a bad note, as my reservation at the much nicer Residence Inn 2 miles away was "moved" because that hotel overbooked the property. The TownePlace Suites is a much older property. The lights, appliances, and furniture all worn out. There was mold on the bathroom ceiling, and I saw at least 3 insects that...

After a summer renting in Vermont, we drove back down to our home and stayed in Albany overnight halfway through our drive home.
