I stopped at this hotel while passing through town. The hotel was very nice quiet and comfortable although I recommend rooms on higher floors do to a nice view and noisy people above me the staff was very accommodating and the price is reasonable. There is ample parking.

From the reviews we were expecting a better experience! Though the site has lovely views, even though we checked in right at check in time we were given a ground floor unit with a view of the parking lot and adjacent sports bar. The hotel in general, and our room, showed considerable signs of age and wear. Our room was...

This was to simply be a three night conclusion to our holiday in the Berkshires. Our stay became a highlight in its own right. From the moment we entered the hotel, staff at every level went over and above assuring us a comfortable stay. Having thought I had booked a room with an overstuffed chair only to find out I...

We nearly always stay at Hampton Inns but had points for a free stay. We found the room to be quite nice and clean and the staff to be friendly. Interestingly, I had read a review where a customer had a non-operable toilet. Ours did "break" but it was just the chain coming loose and I quickly fixed it myself....

I stayed here for a week on a recent business trip. I picked this location because it was value priced compared to other Albany properties. The hotel is located on a ridge. Rooms facing the front of the hotel have a lovely view of downtown Albany. Even if you don't manage to get a room with a view of Albany,...

The property was clean and offered comfortable rooms and they were clean. Front desk staff was very accommodating. It has a nice view of the Albany sky line. It is priced fair for the location. My biggest plus is the sports bar on property. Great for a drink and food without getting in your car.

I traveled to this location this past week. It was only for a one night stay. When I arrived they had to double check that my room was clean, even though I was checking in after 4 p.m. I only stopped in my room long enough to drop off my bags and did not return until much later that evening....
