After reading some of the negative reviews I was not excited to stay at this Econo Lodge, but I was PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! It was wonderful! The lobby was very lodge-like with a giant fire place and a welcoming staff. My room was clean, with a mini-fridge, microwave, great wi-fi connectivity, and a huge bathroom that was fabulous. The area by... More

The rooms had a sour, sweaty odor to them. The bedding was not comfortable. The beds were very uncomfortable. The place was not modernized since the 80's. The front desk was not very accommodating. We asked that they provide two rooms next door to each other and they were unable to meet this request even though the parking lot made... More

We are the kind of people who are able to overlook minor cosmetic issues such as peeling/chipping paint or a few marks on the wall...in favor of a reasonable rate. ESPECIALLY if the room is clean and staff is courteous and friendly, and that was the case at this motel. Would definitely stay here again if we travel to the... More

Didn't look too bad from the outside. Only 4 cars in the parking lot, and a few sketchy looking people hanging around outside. Go inside to enter the lobby and you're greeted by the smell of sweaty socks and mold. Whatever, you get what you pay for right? Okay so now on to the room. You're greeted by a nice... More

This is a very good two-star property. Check-in polite and efficient. The room was basic, clean and comfortable. Everything worked. Breakfast area was clean and well stocked. Manager, Bob, is very pleasant and accommodating. Good value for the rate. This is where I will stay when I am in the area again.

This was the second time I have stayed at this Econo Lodge in Colonie, NY. There are 5 other motels in the immediate vicinity, but this Econo Lodge is my favorite. The sheets and towels were immaculate and soft. The bed was very comfortable. The carpet looked brand new and was clean. The continental breakfast was adequate and appreciated. I... More

I have stayed here twice. Same room both times! Quick check in. Front desk staff is accommodating and friendly. Breakfast is good. Convenient to where I need to be. I will stay here again. You get a very good deal for the price.

Went in, check in was quick and the people at the counter were very friendly. However, when I went into my room (after 4pm) the room wasn't clean from the previous stayer. BUT. I went out to dinner, hung out with a friend, and when I came back that night, the room was perfect! I would recommend this place if... More

Hi, I appreciate my stay at this motel, We had a very large room with a queen bed. The room was clean samething for the restroom. We had a free continental breakfast that was nice located in a very well decorated reception office. I recommended that motel if you got to stay in Albany.
