Although the staff at the Ramada was great, the hotel is in dire need of the facelift it is receiving. It suited our needs, and was in a good location for us near SUNY Albany.

Very clean rooms. Polite staff and very accommodating. Kim seems to be here 24/7, I stayed 2 nights and she seemed to be working every shift. Did I mention Kim is awesome? Breakfast buffet is better than most. Lounge was comfortable and friendly. Not the Plaza or Waldorf but great for the price.

All interior. Very nice breakfast bar. Had lounge also, which is opened late. Our room was ground floor. Very nice. My major complaint about this establishment was, all the smokers sat right outside main entrance of motel. Otherwise, front desk staff polite and friendly.

I was here for an event, but my room smelled very strongly of mildew and cleaning chemicals from the bathroom. I had to leave the window open during my entire stay in order to cut down on the smell. Eventually the chemical smells departed and I was left with just the mold/mildew smell. I don't know why anybody would design...

In the room, the toilet was so close to the ground, we felt like we were going to fall down, and the stopper in the sink didn't work, and the sink was clogged.
