“FABULOUS REMODEL....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

We travel for business about 200 days per year nationwide, and I was NOT looking forward to this hotel after the reviews I had read. WOW! WHAT A NICE SURPRISE!.........We were welcomed to a completely remodeled, deluxe room. Absolutely everything was new from the fixtures and the flooring to the linens and the furniture. Flat screen TV, fridge, table with booth and chair, all in the new contemporary design, free wifi. The lady at the desk was very nice and professional - the man kept his mouth shut but seemed a bit of a grump. I'm guessing he might be the source of the previous bad reviews. No sign at all of bed bugs or any other insects. The housekeeping staff was kind and courteous. We were told this was only 1 of 4 rooms currently refurbished but the entire hotel is under remodel. My only caution would be that in other Motel 6's that have undergone full remodel, they quickly fill up with permanent residents of a lower echelan - drug dealers, hookers, etc... I really, really hope this doesn't happen in this hotel because WE HAD A GREAT STAY and I WOULD LOVE TO COME AGAIN AND AGAIN!

Room Tip: Ask for a newly remodeled room when you book.

I don't usually stay at Motel 6 but I was drawn to this property from a tip from a friend of mine who comes to Albany often to the SUNY campus. I paid something like $72 with taxes and got basically a brand new room.

Wood floors, New beds, New bathrooms, LCD TV, WiFi, the works!

I would definitely recommend this to any traveler; especially those like me who have been paying through the nose on Wolf road for the same room.

Move over, Wolf Road, Motel 6 had your rooms with MUCH better prices!

I booked the hotel room online, as it promised to be a clean and economical room. I was on a business trip for one night and didn't require all the amenities as a pleasure trip. I got to the hotel and the check in was quick. The lobby was exactly like the pictures on the website. As I got to my room (#28) I saw a box with about 20 beer bottles in it outside my room. A bug almost hit me in the face, as I opened the door. I turn on some of the lights. The carpeting was stained and burned to the point of disbelief. The two chairs accompanying the small table in the room were covered in a watery brown substance on the cushion and on the legs. The bedside lamp was broken, the sockets were torn from the wall, the tile floor was dirty The bedding was obviously stained. The couch in the room was covered in white stains. I was disturbed and went to the hotel desk to complain. The manager basically yelled at me and asked what I had expected for 45 dollars. He gave me another room, which was almost as bad. I then asked for my money back and he said because I booked online I could not get a refund. I called corporate while I waited the 30 minutes for a receipt, and was told they do not own the hotel outright, the property owner or hotel manager would have to refund me my money. I then had to drive 25 more minute north for another hotel with a vacancy and pay for a second hotel room.

February 1, 2011 - My wife contacted me stating that she needed to pull over and clean her car as the window was icing over off in one of Albany NY worst snow storms. She chose the motel 6 on Central Ave in Albany NY as she felt this would be a safe place. She no more than got out of her car and a man of middle eastern decent exited the motel and proceeded to harass her because she was parked under their overhang and was not a guest of the hotel and demanded that she leave without cleaning her car off. My wife was scared and feared the road conditions, however, this man could care less and forced my wife to depart the area now in fear of her safety from him.
Is this the kind of place you want to stay??

The motel is very dated. Room had dirty brown/orange shag carpet. There was some sort of old remote control holder bolted to the night stand. Quilt was old and smelled. Blankets had cigarette burns. Room smelled bad. Stayed in winter and the lower level sidewalk was covered with a layer of very slippery ice. The only thing good about the motel is that is it close to the highway and downtown Albany.
