    I was a returning customer to this Hotel as I was attending an annual convention. It is an easy 15 minute drive to downtown Albany and it is within just a couple minutes of many family friendly eateries.

    Don't waist your time find another place to stay. It was dirty, smelly, poorly lit, sheets too small for the bed, springs sticking out of the mattress. I don't know how they stay in business. I would tear it down and build a gas station.

    Accommodations - just okay - run down, overpriced, linens stained, outlet switches hanging off the wall ( suite ?) . Close to where needed to be but would not book again. Location in proximity to destination very good
