Baymont Inn & Suites Rensselaer
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Rensselaer
Reviewed 12 June 2016

Service is very good. I suspect the staff knows that guests don't have a better place to go to (that is, until the hotel next door is finished,) so they try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Having said that, the hotel SMELLS so badly, that the first thing the lady at the front desk did when I went down to complain, was offering me to choose between a can of Lysol and one of Fabreeze. The stink was overpowering, as soon as you stepped out of the elevator on the 2nd. floor. The 3rd floor was slightly better, but not much. The beds were comfortable, but having to deal with that smell for so long was torture. I am guessing they have NEVER shampooed those carpets. I preety much used up the can of Fabreeze during my stay.

Room Tip: Stay away, if you can.

On first appearance this looks like a pretty nice hotel, looks like the outside may have been updated fairly recently. The inside is a different story, though clean it is dated and looking worn down. Our room did not have the updates we are used to in other HIE sites, no refrigerator, older beds, decor and the bathroom ceiling had many open cracks and visible patches. I don't usually notice road noise when we stay at hotels, so for me to notice it must be louder then normal, this site IS right next to the highway. Breakfast was standard fair for HIE, hot and everything was replenished often. The gathering area is small, but it works. The staff were all very pleasant and polite. The wi-fi was adequate. Final note; though this site is not up to current HIE standards the rate does reflect that, this is one of the cheaper HIE's we've stayed at in a long time.

Older hotel, but nice. We were only there one night and I probably wouldn't stay more than that. It was easily accessible from the highway. I would return if we were passing through the area again and needed a place to sleep. We left some belongings behind on accident, but they were easy to get ahold of, super friendly about the situation, and mailed our stuff back to us within a couple days.

It is what you expect. Clean room. friendly people convenient location. Take a room away from the highway if possible. Don't complain. Nothing better is around. Breakfast served is not too bad. Too bad grandmas closed. How many letter do you really need for such a simple place

Driving home from Wisconsin we were traveling with one heck of a rain storm. With wind and hail and difficulty seeing on the interstate in my crossover vehicle with the kids we decided we weren't going to chance it. We happened on this Holiday Inn express. There was a KFC nearby and fresh cookies and coffee and tea in lobby. Vending machine took credit card which was nice. Rooms were clean and good size for us and the kids. Boys played with toys while I used wifi to watch Hulu. Breakfast was delicious in the morning and included. Staff was friendly and personable. Glad we found this place and was able to weather the storm!

Great shower, clean, comfy beds. Best breakfast I've had in a mid-price hotel in a long while. Hershey kisses in the room when I checked in. Not enough places to plug in devices, and very slow Internet. Noisy: I could hear upstairs neighbors and next-door neighbors.

We stayed at this hotel for about a week. The service was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful .The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast fare was amazing. What really put the nice hometown touch were the amazing cookies that were always available in the lobby! Would definitely stay here again. Price was fair also.
