“Very good stay in this Albany motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Clean, quiet, nice breakfast in a clean eating area. Beds were very comfy and towels and amenities nice. Dog friendly. I think the per night rate is very reasonable but we were charged double because of a university event that made the rooms in demand. That's the market system for you.

Room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was very good. Many options to close from. Our room and the hallway smelled musty. Staff was accommodating. Sofa bed is a good option for a little extra space.

Room Tip: Sofa bed is a good option.

I drove up after five days on the road (staying in Best Westerns all the way) to find the Best Western Plus Prairie Inn. It was by far the cleanest, best appointed of the bunch. And, when I reported the refrigerator wasn't working, the "Super" immediately brought up a new one. Clearly, service is high priority in this location. (All staff included.)

I give this place high marks for cleanliness. The room was comfortable and clean. The common areas were clean. The breakfast area was also very clean.

The issue is that it was the loudest room I have ever been in. The poor guy next door couldn't make a love without me hearing it. The noise from the hallway was also pretty bad at times.


Bed was comfortable.

Shower had good pressure.

Overall it was a nice place. Just too noisy.

We stopped here for an overnight stay on your way to California for our daughter's wedding. The location just off the I5 was convenient, and we usually choose Best Western Hotels because of their cleanliness, free breakfasts and internet. The staff was so welcoming, which is what we needed after a long day's drive. The room was clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. My husband fell in love with the pillow he used and upon check out we asked if it could be purchased. The receptionist said she would allow us to buy the pillow and explain it to her manager later. (So nice). The breakfast was a bit different than most, offering buttermilk biscuits along with the standard fare. We liked this stop so much that we made it our goal to stay there on our return trip. Again, the stay was great.

This hotel has restored my faith in Best Westerns. After having stayed in a really awful BW in Canada, I was nervous about staying in another one on my business trip to Corvallis, but I needed a hotel that was within government per diem rates and this one fit the bill. I was so relieved to find the room very clean and very quiet, with kind, helpful staff. It's a small hotel, but it's very nice.

While the bath/shower is of decent size, the sink in my room was outside of the bathroom and in the main area, which was kind of weird, but it's certainly not a make-or-break situation. The desk area was great for me to pretend like I was doing work, but the desk chair was a little uncomfortable. Fortunately, I had a couch in my room, so I pretended to do work while sitting on the couch, and that was much better. The bed was also very comfortable, and the TV was of good size. Complimentary breakfast was decent, though the eggs were rather salty. There is a large variety of breakfast foods available, however.

If you're in the area and looking for a good value hotel, I would recommend the BW Plus in Albany.

Excellent staff! Room was nice and clean. The only thing lacking was the TV channel selection. This review thingy requires a minimum of 200 characters, so I'm adding extra stuff to fill the space. 2 phun e RULES!!
