This hotel is in a good location, being right off the main highway. There were a few places to eat nearby. The morning breakfast was good having fresh fruit, and bread products. There was no hot food, but plenty of cold choices. The room was very basic, but clean. There was no elevator.

My room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. And surprisingly, the shower had plenty of water pressure. The front desk attendant could have been friendlier, but I have encountered worse. For the price, the room was a value.

We booked a day in advance thinking this was a 3 star, good enough and just passing through for a night. The room was is poor condition, had a clump of hair, fly poop and the cleaner missed a washcloth still hanging over the shower curtain. It smelled like it used to be a smoking room, took a while to... More

Stayed twice this trip 10/18 and 10/27/2016. This was 8th & 9th times I have stayed at this EconoLodge in Colonie, NY. There are 5 other motels in the immediate vicinity, but this EconoLodge is my favorite. The sheets and towels are always immaculate and soft. The beds are very comfortable. The carpet looked brand new and was clean. The... More

Checked in before 3PM. I was given a king size bed room. Room was clean, big. Even with flat screen TV, microwave and a mini fridge. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple but enough. Nice motel for what you paid for.

Service was reasonable, breakfast was good, the room was, acceptable, I'm Sure I got bitten overnight, and whilst there were 2 double sized beds, the bedding was poor and there was an unpleasant smell to the room. It is do-able for one night but I wouldn't recommend for longer.

We stayed here for one night. The lobby was welcoming. I had a slight wait for the person to come and register, but someone was manning the office and contacted the registrar as soon as I entered. Our room was on the second floor, which wouldn't have been our choice for one night, but it worked. The room was huge,... More

Booked this for my annual Labor Day trip to Cooperstown and a Tri-City Valleycats game. 6,000 points and $15 for a room. Was pleasantly surprised, room was very comfortable and the shower had great pressure. Room did have a slight odor of stale cigarettes but figure it may have been a smoking room at one time.
