Positive Reviews

Convenient for shoppers

If shopping is what you plan to do during your stay here, then the large mall within walking distance should suit your needs very well. Several guests enjoyed arranging to meet up at the mall for breakfast, do some shopping, then relax with a good book until dinner time at the hotel.

Close to downtown

Down town Albany is conveniently close by for guests to enjoy without wasting valuable time in getting there. You will find plenty of night time entertainment, restaurants, bars, and of course, a host of shopping.

The budget stays intact

The economically priced rooms will ensure you do have some spending money during your stay here. Guests appreciated that the price was not over the top, and enjoyed the little relief while it lasted.

Negative Reviews

Unpredictable shower

You should be quite careful not to get burned in the shower. Guests complained about the constant and rather sudden change in both the water pressure, as well as the water temperature. By the same token guests did not like the fact that they got too cold with the fluctuating temperature too.

Smelly environment

Many visitors complained about the condition of the rooms, and described them as unacceptable. Guests found left over bits of clothing from previous visitors, dirty linen, and stained mattresses, to mention just a few issues. It was also reported that the hallways smelt awefully musty too.

Management a little lacking

Many travellers found a lack of communication when checking in. Those who sent emails previously found they had gone unanswered, and created a mix up regarding their room requests. You may find if you asked for a double bed you could end up with two singles instead.
