On 11/8/18 I booked an airfare and hotel through Expedia.com wherein I paid $210.18 for a hotel room @America’s Best Value Inn in Schenectady N.Y--this reservation was for one person for 3 nights.. On 12/6/18 I paid an additional $50.79 to change my hotel reservation from a king bed to two double beds. However, as soon as I saw the hotel I realized I had made a mistake. The whole atmosphere was shabby, the neighborhood bordered on alarming, and the staff were surly. The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that the room itself was adequate—it looked clean, it was made up daily, and they left the heat on (maybe because local temps were between 10=19 degrees). That said, the parking lot and stairwells etc. were strewn with debrie, there was black ice in the parking lot, and there was no in-room microwave or continental breakfast despite their online ads to the contrary that these were included. Indeed, I couldn’t even get coffee from their lobby’s coffee machine because it was “broke”. This is probably my worst hotel experience ever and I recognize my own failure to check more carefully before booking it. I was even more regretful because I booked my sister into the same hotel (we were there to visit a relative) and am sure she was very disappointed. As previously noted, I booked the airfare and hotel via Expedia, but will not be using them again. Besides Expedia booking me on a return flight that took many hours more than necessary (a quick search showed there were earlier connecting flights another airlines that would have saved me hours at the airport), they charged me an additional $50+ to change my hotel reservation from a room with a king bed to two single bed,even though I did so over a month before my arrival. Apparently, the hotel’s online policy, which states that they honor free cancellations, did not apply. From now on I intend to do the following (1) I will carefully review hotel recommendations from individuals whose opinions are screened; and (2) I will not book a trip to Expedia or similar websites because an nonline google search of these and similar websites make c lear that they may be helpful in comparing costs, but that an individual is better off shopping for hotels and airfares without these companies.…
I made a reservation through a booking site. Called to cancel around 9 AM. A man answered and didn't speak English! He did the best he could to suggest I call back after 11 o'clock. Needless to say, I called and also reported them to the booking site. Sad, I can't imagine what it would be like if we actually stayed there.
Filthy, disgusting, unkept. I tend to write 5 star reviews on places- and only rarely do I go out of my way to trash a place...so when I do, it’s because it deserves it. Dangerous place was well- large numbers of people were congregating in the cars and parking lot, giving it an unsafe feel. If this place was safe, the staff wouldn’t be in the office behind plexiglass, put it that way.
Just a quick over nighter to take college student home. No frills and it shows but free parking & wifi. Hotel host was friendly and room decent for a 1 night stay. 5Min to Union college and restaurants.
Last minute decision to go up the night before SUNY Albany graduation so we wouldn't have to travel in the morning. This was the only hotel left with a room available. This place is the definition of a desperation move. It is what it is.
