We stayed at this establishment as a one night layover returning from western NY. We were mostly concerned with affordability and it met our expectations. Two things that others should be aware of are that there are groups of people loitering around this hotel as one review already noted. The other is that this hotel/motel as well as others in...

We have been going to Saratoga race track every summer for over 20 years. We stay 20 minutes south of Saratoga for one third of the cost to stay in or near Saratoga. We've tried many hotels located at exit 2 on the Northway. This gives easy access to the highway to Saratoga. This was our first time at the...

We stayed for 1 night. Not the cleanest, but no bugs or mold. Front desk was friendly enough. Sketchy people hanging outside after dark made it a little creepy, but overall we weren't expecting too much more for the price we paid. If your picky stay somewhere else.

I was hesitant to book this place after reading some of the reviews, but glad I took the chance for $60 for the nite. It was a great place for a quick nite's sleepover on way up to Vermont. Nothing fancy, but room was clean, updated, bathroom had sink outside of bathroom which was nice, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was...

Lobby and breakfast area look pretty good, (which is what is shown on the website) but the rest of the hotel is really run down and needs attention. The staff does seem interested in how your stay was so I hope that they'll be updating the hotel. Rooms are accessed from the outside. All the stairwells and walkways to the...

Booked online through the hotel website about 2 hours before arrival. Did not receive any emails or calls about the reservation. Upon arrival, the man at the desk took my ID before telling me they did not have a room for me. Why would he take my information unless he was trying to charge me for a room he wasn't...

I stayed here after getting a cheap rate on an opaque site. I arrived on Saturday night, I gave the check-in clerk my name and she says, 'OK, Hotwire has you booked for a smoking room with two double beds.' *sigh* Do I look dumb? That is so disingenuous. I've booked through Hotwire 50 times. On almost all occasions, the...

Stayed here on our way back after a long day of hiking in the Adirondacks. Just wanted something with a reasonable rate and a clean bed/room, and that is what we got! Are the furnishings a bit old and scuffed, yes. Is this the Ritz Carlton? No. In general the room appeared sufficiently clean for a nights stay and it...

The fourth time I've stayed at this property. It's not the Ritz, but it isn't supposed to be. For the price you get a nice clean room located near several restaurants, bars, and the mall. I will continue to stay here when in the Albany area. Also a cheap out of town alternative during track season in Saratoga.
