I traveled downstate for work this week and I was lucky to stay at this hotel. The room was immaculate, the beds were comfortable, the hallways and elevators were clean and neat and the staff was amazing! This experience was everything you want a hotel stay to be. To start with the weather was horrible, we had to drive through...

We have stayed a few times at this Holiday Inn Express and I'm always impressed. It's clean, quiet, comfy. The staff is uniformly nice. The pool is good--not amazing, but better than many I've seen. The breakfast is your usual 'free breakfast,' so hot-lamps, but plentiful and has some healthy options. And some really good coffee! The woman keeping the...

Several colleagues and I stayed here for one night while participating in a two day training. Upon checking in I was upgraded to a suite which was clean and spacious. Accommodations were great. The bed was perfect although I found the pillows uncomfortable. The room where breakfast was served was large with several tables. Breakfast was the usual fare. I...

Dear Mainelytravel, Thank you for posting a candid feedback from your recent stay with us.

We were very happy with our stay. Nice front desk clerk, spacious and clean room, very good breakfast (thanks for the little Chobani yogurts!). Kudos to the hotel for not using styrofoam products. Very good place to stay if you're in the Capital District.

Check in went smoothly and the front desk staff were extremely welcoming. We were pleased to have been offered cookies, tea and coffee - it was a long drive and too early for dinner and glad for the light snack. The wifi password was in our card access folder and directions for logging in were explained to us without having...

Stayed for one night in room 101 due to having a soccer tournament in Poughkeepsie. If we hadn't been pressed for time, I would have complained to the desk. However, the ampunt of mold in the grout of the floor tile was inexcusable. There was also a great deal of mold spotting on the bathroom ceiling, indicating a ventilation problem....

This Holiday Inn Express is clean, comfortable, and convenient to retail stores, restaurants, I-90, and Rensselaer Polytechnic (RPI) in Troy (7 miles away). Annie at the front desk is very friendly and personable. Entire staff is very friendly. The facility is showing some wear and needs some TLC—towel rack in room was detached from wall, other minor signs of wear....

We stayed here one night while traveling through the area. We arrived late in the evening and the lady that checked us in was very friendly and helpful.

Overall a very nice stay at this hotel conveniently located close to I90 with easy parking and good view of Albany. We cashed in some points for two nights during a college move-in trip for our son. We were greeted warmly by the staff and check-in was quick after asking us our room preference. The room was as expected -...
