The hotel is run down. The gym is a disaster. The rooms are ok but the mattresses can be broken. The refrigerators do not work always and the food gets frozen. Not enogh outlets. The staff is nice but can not help to much.

Lobby & halls need to be cleaned, they said that they are in process of renovations. Room was clean & comfortable. More electric outlets should be provided on the desk. I prefer a Kuerig coffee make. Food from the restaurant was decent, got the wrong order but it was close enough. Overall a pleasant stay I would return.

We stayed here for two nights on a visit to friends who live in Troy. It was clean, and the staff was very helpful. The room was a nice size, comfortable bed, with refrigerator and microwave. Definitely needs updating in elevators and other public areas, but we weren't in the hotel much. The hot breakfast was good. Close to the...

The hotel was dirty, ceiling tiles falling from the ceiling in our room, dirty plastic ware on the floor in the room, ice machines not working. Forgot a couple of items at home (comb, razor) the hotel was out of them. Should have stayed at a hole in the wall place probably would have been cleaner. We stayed here after...

Receptionist was friendly and helpful, but after we had been on our room for a while, someone unlocked the door and walked in because the front desk had assigned them our same room. Room was reasonably clean, but there was no hot water (only lukewarm), the bathroom was really small and had blistering wallpaper, the shower curtain would not stay...

We arrived there just after 10 pm. There was no one at the reception. One person in the lobby (perhaps he worked there) told us: "she will be right with you". So we waited, and waited. Another person said the same thing to us a long while later. It was not a nice experience considering we were tired following hundreds...

As the title for this review indicates, I was spending the night in Albany on a budget. The Ramada Plaza was among the lowest advertised prices among the larger chains for this particular Friday night. Check in process was quick and easy - elevators were functioning but that's about it. Linens were clean and the room was dust free, but...

Other than the location being perfect, it was all downhill from there. We were met by a fairly affable concierge person that handled our check-in an unconscious manner. The front-desk person took multitasking to new heights. They robotically handled our check-in by simultaneously preparing our paperwork; answering an incoming call while having another on hold; answered a staff member’s questions;...
