Fairfield Inn Albany University Area

Reviewed 3 April 2014

Clean room, friendly staff and good location. Gym was small, but works. Complimentary breakfast had many choices, including some options for my vegan life style. Would recommend for anyone who needs to be across from SUNY or not far from down town.

Bought this hotel through hotwire so cannot complain about price at all. It is just your average hotel for staying in for a fly-by night. Nothing to fancy but its not terrible. The hotel staff was nice and there is breakfast.

I've stayed at many Fairfield Inns and they are pretty consistent, this one was no exception. The price was right, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was adequate, pool was decent, parking was ample. It's tough to write a detailed review because nothing really jumps out at you, good or bad. The telltale sign is that I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I returned to Albany.

I stayed at the Fairfield Inn for 1 night. The continental breakfast was more than adequate and better than other chain hotels offerings. The room was large, fairly clean, and the bed was comfortable. I wish the indoor swimming pool was larger, it isn't large enough to swim laps in.

General appearance upon entry is poor. The place looks so worn, however the rooms are so clean, and the bedding seems new. Bathroom very clean. Breakfast bar is the usual so so fairfield, lots of animal feed (bagels, waffels,etc.) and as so often is the case, the one employee on duty is overwhelmed when the rush starts. Pool is actually nicely sized, hot tub is shut down permenantly as per desk clerk. An overheard conversation is that no manager of the property has stayed in some time, the general appearance may improve when the owners fix this. The property appears owned by a group, several hotels in a row, multiple brands.
Good value for the price, directly oppisite SUNY albany, this may account for high use and worn look.

Room Tip: No food nearby. Difficult to get to unless gps guided, too many interstate ramps, and those horrible...

A mixed bag: rooms are clean and about what you would expect from a lower price range of a chain hotel; commons area are tired and worn; carpeting looks in need of replacement or repair; breakfast area clean and well stocked. Need to replace front door - difficult to use when dragging a suitcase. Given its condition the price is too high.

Stayed at the Inn over the Columbus day weekend, the room was specious and very clean. After checkout we continued to Saratoga for a short shopping trip and lunch. I received a call from Christine from the Inn, telling me I left behind my handbag. She assured me it would be keep in a safe place until I returned. Thank you to a amazing honest staff as all of my contence we intact.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back were very quiet.
