The room was dirty very dusty. The front desk said they will send some to clean the room but they never came. I when home with allergies and got worse. You could a lot of dust on the drapes, the rugs were filthy the furniture was very dusty. I really fell that should pay for this kind of service.

The smell of the room. The rundown appearence. The filth. The feeling that bugs were waiting for the lights to turn off in order to crawl around! Etc....
The best part was checking out!

Not much, given the price.
The full breakfast was very good and came at no extra cost; plus it was on the premises. The room was clean and well furnished. The staff was courteous.

They were doing renovations there was nothing anyone could do about this but it would have been nice to know.
The staff was excellent especially Maurice who jumped our car for us and was very friendly and kind towards us.

The only complaint we had was that the pool had an extremely high amount of chlorine. Our skin and eyes were burning.
Nice clean rooms. Good amount of choices at breakfast. Liked the complementary coffee in the lobby.

In the middle of construction the hotel was very clean. The staff went above and beyond. I would go back in a heart beat. One suggestion, think about using the shuttle to take people to the Capital, parking is very expensive. This would give your ratings a perfect 100%. Blessings

Room was not ready and I checked in at 5. Schedule the room two days prior. Tub was dirty, last guest left some items in room and was not taken out. Dirty ice tray. Had to call twice for assistance. Finally a young male came and asked me what needed to be done!!

Renovations during the stay.
I was allowed a late check due to medical reason, and a late conference meeting.

The bed sheet barely fit over the mattress and it was uncomfortable. The bathroom seemed clean but upon further inspection, I found little hairs all around the edges of the bathroom area. The room itself felt dingy.
The staff was very nice.

Old, low-end bathroom, the whole hotel needs be either be renovated or they need to slash their prices.
Not much really, for the price, its really just not worth it.

I was a single woman traveling late night discovering there was heavy renovation in progress made me feel uneasy.
I like Peter the person at the desk. But the other person was acting weird checking me in. I liked the

Initially given a pool-side room-- smells awfully like chlorine. Wi-Fi was too weak to use. Hard beds.
Price, easy to downtown Albany, friendly staff, nice clean room-- better than expected for what was paid. Good deal if you don't mind an outdated building, just want a clean place to stay the night.
