Staying here in the winter is taxing for anyone with mobility issues. The toilet is too low - seat is at 15-1/2" - 16" from the floor, which is the absolute minimum for anyone. And, if there's any precipitation, e.g., snow, ice, sleet, and it melts then freezes, the parking lot is solid ice. I arrived after an ice storm. Procured my room key from the clerk, then drove to a parking space in front of my room. Couldn't get from my car into the room - it was a sheet of ice. Called the FD - he sent out a very old, frail man to assist me. Well, together, we moved the car to a parking space with less ice around it and eventually got my basic luggage into the hotel. The next morning I couldn't avail myself of the complimentary breakfast because it's served in the same area as the check-in, at the front of the motel. And the parking lot was still a sheet of ice. I couldn't risk slipping and falling. If you don't enjoy walking/sliding/ loading/ unloading your vehicle on ice in the winter, don't stay here until spring or summer or fall.

Hotel is disgusting! Was woken up at 2 am! I was being attacked by bed bugs! Management offered no refund and only said we could have a different room! I checked out at 2 am and had to book a different hotel! Do not go here!

Just an average place, with not too good a breakfast, but the price is so reasonable compared to those nearby that I have to recommend it. Also, it is convenient to Albany airport and has a number of decent eating establishments close by, some walkable. Good, overall experience.

We had a reservation at this hotel. We tried to call 4 times to cancel...finally reached someone who said they would cancel. Following month: they had charge the room to my girlfriend credit card ( we had stayed at this hotel few months before ) and they had the number on file. Sent 7 emails during a month to solve the issue. They never answered , call or email. Using a card without permission is called fraud!!!!!!!!!

Booked this hotel at the last minute. I arrived after a long day of traveling and check-in was easy and the desk clerk was very pleasant. It had turned very cold so the lack of carpeting in the room was a little tough at first but it warmed up fairly quickly. This is an older property but the room looked like it had been recently upgraded. The bed was adequate...not the best but certainly not the worst. Check out the following morning was quick and easy. Good for the price and nicer than most Econolodge properties. All in all it made for a pleasant, quick overnight stay.
