This hotel is right off of I-87, close to the airport, loads of shopping on a cul de sac which is surprisingly quiet. It is not a Marriott or Hilton, the rooms are small, the desk is a built in shelf, there is a closet, nightstand and a window seat. Towels slightly scratchier than a 4 star place, but; the bed was comfortable, the shower worked fine and if all you need is a place to sleep in the area, the price cannot be beat!
I was in the area for family business and needed to stay over rather than driving down at night. The front desk staff is very pleasant and friendly, 24 hour coffee and tea, a continental breakfast that is not gourmet but good selection and included make your own waffles. It was probably half the cost of a well known brand, had a large fluorescent light over the bed which allowed me to actually work in the room and good linens.
Wow, I really appreciate this review from such a well heeled guest. The Microtel brand in noted as one if not the best in the budget economy chain of hotels available and we are thankful for the comparison of our value as this reviewer has done so well with those brands that are normally associated the higher hotel service levels. If it will take only a little more fabric softener for our towels to achieve an even higher level of respect then it is worth looking into.
All the Best,
Very clean. Modern. Simple. no frills like a pool or hot tub and restaurant . Has wifi. Quiet. Would stay there over and over. Area is full of shopping, eateries and easy on and off to thruway. We stayed 2nights. Street very quiet yet close to everything. Visited Albany for family event. Other family members also stayed in same hotel and were very satisfied.
We are so glad that this guest took the time to share their experience at our hotel. Being at a central location for the Tri-cities of the Capitol Region of New York we are honored to be this Family Reunion hotel of choice. We look forward to their return next year or hopefully sooner.
All The Best,
My wife, son, and I needed a room in the Albany area and decided to give Microtel a try because the rate was very reasonable. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and remodeled and the room rate included a decent continental breakfast in the morning. We will definitely consider staying here again when we are traveling in this area in the future.
We thank this guest for their review and look forward to their return.
All the Best,
