This was my second time to Albany. The first time I stayed in the Town Place Suites, which although is by the University, does not have a great deal nearby especially if you don't have a car. The rooms are better in the Town Place Suites.
The Howard Johnson is near one mall - a 10 minute walk and has lots of restaurants within walking distance.
Downtown Albany is 20 minutes on the bus, which stops directly outside.
The rooms are adequate, clean and tidy but the decor is worn eg: there was a hole in my bed spread.
All in all though, it is good value for money - half the price of the Town Place Suites, but you get what you pay for.
