I would like to say that when I came they were currently renovating a few of the rooms, which is okay because it doesn't bother me. But I really liked the manager, he was very nice and got me the exact room I wanted for an economically reasonable price. I will come back in a few months.

As I was driving by I needed a place to stay so I chose this one, it looks really really good on the outside. The only update they will need it to redo the parking lot. But the guy working behind the desk was really nice and helped me find some things to do in the area before I headed...

I was happen to stumble upon this hotel when I was looking for a place to stay while I was in New York. I had the pleasure of talking to Arun the manager, who did a great job with the exterior of the hotel; it was really clean and welcoming. It's a family run business and you can tell he...

We had a nice room in the new building. The room was very clean. The staff was very nice. We only stayed one night as we were traveling to NYC the next day on amtrak for a day trip. We would stay again. It was close to the amtrak station .

I stayed at the Hotel after a long daytrip. Booked this Hotel on tripadvisor via Expedia. I Must have been a fool but ignored all the bad reviews on tripadvisor. Probabably because it was Late and it seemd to be a reasonable Price in the Albany Area. We got there at about 10 pm. The owner(coming straight out of his...

I read the negative reviews so I was careful about checking out the room. It was clean, new sink and toilet. Wifi, tv, air cond. and heater work fine. The sheets appeared fresh. The room is dated - older furniture, ugly carpeting, but came with microwave and small fridge. It's not fancy or upscale, but adequate for a short stay...

This motel has nice curb appeal appeal. Very friendly front desk person. Our room was newly painted nice and clean. We had a very nice stay and was surprised to read the negative reviews. The new management are doing a good job. Keep up the good work. I will be staying here again.

Reasonable price, clean, easy access from Columbia Turnpike (US20). Good for a short business trip. Located near shopping and chain dining (dunkin donuts, wendys, burger king) and also local dining. Included wifi was stable and reasonably fast.

“Stay somewhere else! and use TripAdvisor first! There are many very nice places to stay in the area. Try the Marriott Fairfield or the Marriott Residence Inn (both nearby, with restaurants and easy highway access) as some other family members stayed there and were very pleased. The Marriotts were also very helpful to my family members that had to find alternate lodging in the middle of the night. We always try to support small businesses, but this time we made a mistake.”
