It was just a distance away from where I was going
I liked the cleanliness and everything was correct as described in the description.
The workers (not the ones at the desk) were very creepy. One worker was just standing there staring at me. When I stared back he still wouldn't turn his head and continued to stare until I left. The other lady and other man were a bit rude and creepy too.
didn't have any non smoking rooms available
Low price. Just fine for a short overnight stay.
No problems. Parking in front of first floor rooms is very convenient.
No microwave or fridge to store food
Clean quiet and friendly service
Dirty rooms and toiletI was given a smoking room. Was told if you want non smoking you have to pay $5 more to upgrade. First time ever seen a hotel say that.Terrible smell in rooms.I would not recommend.
The exterior, grounds and lobby looked liked the hotel was out of business. Awful!!! We almost left when we drove in.
Easy to grab a sleep and a mile off of the highway.
Heat was not on when we got in the (-25). It took a good 4 hours to be comfortable
Nice, clean and best of I needed to catch the bus and it was right up front.
The fire department's alarm right across the street super annoying.
The room was larger than most 1 stars
The first room I was assigned was dingy and smelled like it had been a smoking room although they billed it as a non smoking. Also the door chain was missing the chain component and did not afford the level of security normally expected.
Very clean, location was great!
Breakfast ended too early (9am)
This hotel had everything I needed at such a low cost.
The hotel room smelled like it had not been opened in a long time. I just let the room air out with the door open. I was about to request another room or cancel my stay because of the construction going on in the parking lot, but it ended around 6-7pm.
Breakfast area way too small. Ice machine far far away from room.
The quietness was the best part of this hotel.
Our bathroom had a bad smell everytime we used the toilet, but other than that theres nothing bad to say.
Really dirty Bedding not clean Room smelly Bathroom so dirty!!! Bath stain, hair in it, impossible to stop water
Availability of smoking room and location off highway and price
Incident with very noisy people late at night outside our room in parking lot, (not hotel's fault) but the hotel staff took care of the situation immediately when I called the front desk.
It is falsely advertized as being near the Albany Airport.
only smoking rooms were left... the air filter on heating unit was filthy. the breakfast had no fresh fruit
Centrally located. second stay and price was very good. Near Shopping Centers. Courteous staff specially Day Manager.
Booked online. thought I selected Room w/Fridge & Microwave..was told no..1st room was musty smelling, no shower head and door would not lock from the outside upon leaving the next morning for an appointment. Was told we would have to change rooms..
Convenient to interstate, shopping and lots of good food choices nearby.
Schlepping bags up stairs on an outdoor staircase
closeness to turnpike
lack of customer service ability and unwillingness to work things through
ease of access to the turnpike
staff needs customer service training and accuracy at performing tasks as well
The price was great.
I didn't realize until it was too late that there wasn't a coffee pot in the room.
Management let me check in 90 minutes early.
The service, the building, the quality of the room, and the location.
It is basic, clean, safe, good and just about what to expect for price. The free breakfast that is offered is kinda a joke. What there is are bagels, donuts, coffee, oj, and cereal. Wifi sometimes worked.
Breakfast could have been more. Wi fi connection better.
The front desk worker, Muhammed, was very nice and helped me with directions.
The room was very musty. The comforter on the bed was not very warm, and was very scratchy. The sink was plugged up. The WiFi did not work the morning I left.
The room smelled musty, there was mold in the corners. The CBS channel we wanted to watch was the only channel unviewable, I called the front desk, and after checking her TV she said I was correct. I asked if she called the cable company and she did not. As far as I know, she never did. Continental Breakfast??? Cereal, coffee, juice, bread for toast, bagels and donuts. For $* it was a good deal, and if the room smelled better and looked cleaner, it would not have been bad.
Clean, confortable, decent morinng coffe
While the staff was perfectly nice, the room leaves much to be desired. Duct tape held the toilet together, the bathroom had no light-switch cover--just a metal stub. The rug had stains in it and the wall-sconces over the bed were hanging out of the wall looking rather precarious. The morning 'breakfast' which goes 6-9:30 was out of everything at 7:15. They had large dirty looking tupperware containers that held Cheerios and other cereal while the gallon of milk was empty as was the juice. That was it. That was 'breakfast.' If you need a super cheap place to flop asleep then get the heck out this is it but if you intend to hang out in the hotel room, try someplace else. This is just too dirty.
Nice, comfortable, clean, good service. Stay here whenever I am in town. Excellent value.
Drop this hotel asap! Suspicious activities, people, smells. Fighting in the parking lot at night. Early morning vomiting in outside trash cans. Dangerous place!
This hotel is good if you don't want to spend a lot of money and want to take your dog with you. Towels were dirty and had stains on them, makeup and dirt. Phone and end table were sticky as was 'dining' table. Carpet had stains on it. Sheets were clean and smelled good. No alarm clock in the room. I would not stay there again. Next time I will spend the extra $$ for a nicer hotel. Check in staff was incredibly friendly and nice. Room was big.
the TV remote did not work the room was not clean the box spring was broken
