Front desk staff were most helpful. Upon arrival to my room, I noticed that there were chunks of food all over the carpet, apparently not had been vacuumed. The bathroom was totally disgusting. The grout on the tile floor had turned black in some areas, the bathtub doesn't come clean anymore as I tried myself. There was also mold forming... More

Holiday Inn Express is very good. Front desk, breakfast and room rank high. Ate at the sports restaurant and had a 10% discount. Just mention it at the restaurant. As an IGH member, I got upgraded and a view of Albany!

Upon arriving to a very warm welcome, our (mine and my friend's) rooms were both rather disappointing - not vacuumed and the windows were really bad. Then I decided to take a post dinner walk and grabbed my camera. As I departed my room, I saw one of those bins filled with linen, so I started to take a test... More

An excellent place to stay. There was plenty of parking, the welcome on the reception desk was warm and friendly, the rooms were large and comfortable ... and everything was very clean. There was a nice pool and the hotel had plenty of other amenities. The breakfast was fine, if rather dull and uninspired. However, if I need to stay... More

In town on business, our hosts arranged for the lodging. This property conveniently located near the intersection of US 4 and I-90. I had a 3rd floor room facing the Albany skyline, nice.

Not familiar with the area we picked this hotel and had no complaints. The staff was polite and efficient and directed us to a Sports Bar within walking distance for dinner. Adequate parking and located close to the interstate.

We have stayed a few times at this Holiday Inn Express and I'm always impressed. It's clean, quiet, comfy. The staff is uniformly nice. The pool is good--not amazing, but better than many I've seen.
