I stayed at this place with a friend of mine for the Springsteen show. Although it is labelled as downtown, I still had to drive to the show at the Times Union Arena. However, at about $60 dollars it was about half what I would have payed to stay at the hotels right in dowtown, and it was only a couple minutes drive. The room was average, but did have a fridge and microwave. The bathroom was surprisingly nice. The staff was very helpful with directions to bars and restaurants downtown. Overall, the place suited our needs for somewhere to stay while in town for the concert.
