Best Western Sovereign Hotel - Albany
Ranked #32 of 50 Hotels in Albany
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We are always pleasantly surprised when we stay here while visiting our family in Albany. The room was clean, bright, and well taken care of. The floors in the restaurant where a bit sticky but the breakfast was adequate and the warm items were nicely prepared. Overall this is a good value for the money and would recommend this hotel.

I had a great room with a king size bed and all the employees where very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was great for being free and the fitness center was fit my needs. I will stay there again. This is a great place to stay for business, family, couples, etc. And, you can't beat the price for what you get.

We tried to book two nights at this hotel but they were booked.We stayed at another popular hotel and was extremely disappointed. The place was dirty and lights were even missing. We requested another room and the second room at this another hotel was dirty as well. Mirrors were not even cleaned. I can say when we stayed at Best Western we did not experience any of these problems. It was clean, the peope were friendly and helpful, along with the breakfast being delicious! We will come back. The pool was very relaxing!!!!

Everything about this hotel was just gross. There was food on the carpet of our room. The sheets had a lot of hair on them. The front desk staff was rude when we asked to be moved. It was not until a hotel maintenance worker came to the room and called the front desk on the radio to report the room condition that we were given a new room.

Also the pool, which received good reviews on some other sites, is poorly maintained. There are rust stains on the tiles and pool walls.

Stayed at the Best Western, in town for a Springsteen concert. Not my first choice, but clean, nicely appointed room, wonderful helpful staff. The breakfast was included, again, service staff great, food was so-so, but good enough. All in all, I would visit again.

I booked this hotel as a stopover and arrived very late, the staff member at check in was friendly and efficient. The hotel itself if in need of a lick of paint, it's very tired looking. Our room was clean but very uncomfortable, the mattress was very firm and I didn't sleep well at all. We did have the breakfast but it was very basic, but enough to get us on our way. We didn't pay a lot for the room and it was fine for our purpose but I wouldn't return.
