Positive Reviews

Handy roadside location opposite the university

Visitors to the University at Albany loved the location of this property as it put them within easy walking distance of the campus. Moreover, motorists liked the way they were a short drive from downtown Albany and several dining options. There were also conveniences nearby like filling stations and bus stops. The free parking was another plus. Drivers said it was easy to get to area attractions, government buildings, museums, arts venues, shopping centres and the airport.

Thumbs up for well-equipped rooms

According to many reviewers, the rooms weren't the height of luxury but were spacious and more than suitably clean and comfy for their requirements. Budget-minded visitors welcomed the low-cost room rates and often added that they got fair value for money. Extended stay guests liked the way each room boasted a well-equipped kitchenette where they could prepare light meals. Several travellers mentioned that they found the hotel fairly quiet considering the proximity of the freeway.

Good customer service

Travellers appreciated the good customer service they received from attentive, helpful and pleasant members of staff. The pet-friendly policy won approval from animal lovers.

Negative Reviews

Minor maintenance problems

Slow-draining water, missing kitchen utensils, malfunctioning air-conditioning units and tired-looking decor were among the maintenance grumbles guests had in certain rooms.

Cleanliness could have been improved

Although the weekly housekeeping appealed to many guests, others felt it was provided too infrequently. There were also reports of cleanliness issues in several rooms such as dirty microwaves, build-ups of hair and dust, stained bedding and lingering smoky smells plus carpets and bathrooms that could have done with a deeper clean.

Occasional criticism of free breakfast

The free grab-and-go breakfast was met with criticism from some quarters amid claims that the choice of food on offer was too limited.
