“Couldn't have been nicer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

I wanted to make a comment about this Inn, although I have not stayed there yet, but I hope to. My review is based on the people at the Inn who I have dealt with on the phone. The Inn keepers have been so lovely and have tried so hard to accommodate our needs. I have heard from everyone that this is the place to be for its terrific location, wonderful rooms and outstanding service. From what I can tell, just by speaking to them on the phone, I would give them 5 stars for their warm, friendly and hospitable manner.

Our stay was in August. Perfect weather to enjoy the park across the street. We got lucky and parked in front of building. The building is much better than we thought or the pictures represent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first stay in a B&B. This place set the bar very high for our next B&B. Will will not hesitate to stay here again. We stayed on second floor on the park side which was beautiful and clean. We would like to try a different room next time just to get a different feel. The secluded garden area in the back was very quite and peaceful. The price seemed high when we placed reservation, but we feel we got more than we expected. We will go again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building.

First time I stayed here. Very nice B&B. The staff was extremely helpful. The first floor is very comfortable for the guests to relax. The entire place is very clean and nicely decorated. I had a view of Washington Park.

Room Tip: Choose a room view a view of the park.

I arranged for me and four colleagues to stay here for an evening when we were in Albany on business. The building is beautiful and the rooms are furnished perfectly. The neighborhood is also lovely and has restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We were all so impressed with the staff and felt welcome from the minute we arrived. Janine is great as is Jason, and Chuck went out his way to get us a reservation at a wonderful restaurant around the corner that does not usually take reservations. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Albany for business or pleasure. The only caveat, which was not a problem for any of us, is that there is no elevator so you have to walk up stairs to get to the rooms.

We were so pleased to land at The Morgan State House at the end of a long journey. The Christmas décor, the hospitable service & the privacy of the accommodations were a welcome! We are so glad we stayed and plan to stay again when we return to the Albany area. Thank you Morgan State House!

Room Tip: Third floor overlooking the courtyard is serene.

We've stayed here a number of times while on business in Albany. We MUCH PREFER the main house. The public rooms are charming as are all the guest rooms. The Annex, on the other hand, is not so lovely. The one and only time I stayed there, the room was dark, dingy and dusty. I didn't feel at all comfortable there. If you can get a room in the main house, it's great. The breakfast is fine and the garden in back is also lovely.
