We were in town for a wedding at proctors. We figured this hotel would be adequate being right down the street, however we should have picked something different. This hotel is located in a poor section of town and when you have to slide your credit card under bullet proof glass at check-in you know it's bad. We used the...

So my wife got the hotel through Expedia and was in a hurry so she did not do her normal due diligence. And in her defense she was like no need to get a pricy hotel for just one night. Well let's just say she was WRONG! For starters this hotel was right in the middle of an area where...

Well I haven't been here an hour and I'm already dreading my visit. First we pull up to cop cars surrounding the place. Then each bed only has one pillow..there's four of us. And one thing that really upsets me is NO WIFI!! Everywhere it says free WiFi. I go to the lobby to ask the password to one of...

First of all I want to say that I disagree with the bad reviews. For this price you have to set your expectations at a realistic level. For a stopover I can do without he concierge, valet parking, spa and room service. What you get is a well kept clean room that has all it needs. Clean beds and linen,...

Everything looks so nice on the internet, but when we reached there, we thought our GPS had send us to the wrong location. The building is poorly kept and not clean. We wanted to cancel and go to another location, but it was too late to change our minds. My works called the place A DUMP.

I would never recommend staying here to anyone under any circumstances. I did not feel safe outside after dusk (much less dark) and didn't feel all that safe in the hotel, either. There was constant noise from the area, and my daylight excursions led to the unmistakable conclusion that it was a rough neighborhood. The rooms are mediocre, at best....

This is my second time staying at this hotel in the past 10 years and have to say that the hotel itself has gotten significantly better in that time. It appears to be under different management, my room was a little smelly, but definitely clean. Kudos. That said, the neighborhood is just NOT SAFE. Period. Schenectady, while getting better, is...

Hotel in Disrepair, Atrocious Unresponsive Staff & Service, located in crime and drug infested neighborhood. Be prepared to wait until the sun shines before venturing outside. Don't ask for more TP, towels, or pillows. Your request will be met with derision! There is nothing redeeming about this waste of public lodging!!!

My husband and I have stayed here at least a dozen times over the past couple years while visiting our kids at Union. Pros..rooms are always clean with crisp linens and towels, easy check-in, it's always quiet at night.The owners are nice and accommodating. The rooms are inexpensive and make it an excellent value.

This hotel is in a "fringe" neighborhood. There are security cameras covering the outside, for what it's worth. The room was clean, but it had lots of poor repairs and the heater/ac was a piece of junk. The room had a musty/smoky smell to it even thought it is a no smoking room. For what I paid for this room...

We are so sorry that you did not have a comfortable stay with us. We are not sure about the air conditioner, because they are all the same at our hotel and are in great running order. If you were having trouble turning the ac on we wished you had called the front desk, we would have been more than...
