We stay at this place every July and August. We are treated like family and the owner and his family are great people.We stay in the same room each year and they have upgraded the room each year. For the price it is a great place to stay and we always look foward to our trip and our stay at Ho Jo's

I often travel on business trips and I had stays at various other hotels in the Albany area until I found this one. The staff is extremely concerned and helpful in meeting your needs and the amenities are a great value including free continental breakfast, hot waffles, fruit, bagels, cereal, pastries, english muffins, coffee, tea and juices, free wireless internet service in the rooms, plus TV, refrigerator, microwave and safe box. I found the hotel clean, with a outdoor swimming pool and an physical fitness room. It met all my needs and whenever i come to Albany this is my hotel of choice, and at a very affordable price too!

The place is undergoing some renovations, but it needs a better a lot more than that including staff. It's not clean and the housekeeping is terrible. Requests are not honored or forgotten. They seemed mostly brain dead. I won't stay there again.

This hotel needs major help. The woman at the desk was very nice and tried to be accommodating, but it is not fair to try to even sell rooms to this hotel. We were paying $69.50 for the night, but they couldn't have paid me to stay there..... We wound up not staying because it was so horrible........ I hope the owners clean this place up.......

We stayed at the Howard Johnson Inn on Central Ave. in Albany in August 2010. It has traditionally been a yearly staple of our family for one weekend in the summer. However, last year - for a variety of reasons - we considered not returning. However, we decided to return this year and were quite pleased. There were a lot of good thing things about this trip and no negative issues at all. The pool was excellent and we had no complains at all about the staff and service. The atmosphere outside and around the pool area has a comforting "feel" to it. I would recommend this motel to friends as a sound choice for a centrally located motel with a nice pool and reasonable rates.
