"Don't stay here."

User 13/06/2021

the pPone, TV, and microwave didn't work. Second room was better. Only the TV had problems in this room; only one channel. As part of the BW hotel chain, we expected something much better than what we experienced.


User 08/06/2021

I would recommend getting your tetanus shot before staying at this place. It's absolutely filthy! The sitting area outside of the pool hasn't been cleaned in I would say a year, there was an extreme amount of black mold on the bathroom ceiling, the room smelled of regrets and disappointment. The hallways smelled like the cheapest weed a person can buy. I honestly don't know how anyone could work there! Do the Best Western hireups even know about this place?

"Met the need"

jonathansQ3841TO, Huntington, New York 08/06/2021

Place looks better online than in person. Outside had tall weeds growing. Room looked ok but I had concerns the sheets weren't changedfrom the other guest. My stay was less than 12 hour so I just needed a place to sleep. Facility was understaffed with only the front desk person. He did his best and was very apologetic about the situation. Checkout is 12noon but I needed the privacy for a call that ended at 12:30. They had difficulty accommodating me. So I left and was able to reschedule. For 1 night sleeping it is ok. But will not be my first choice.

"I would whether stay in my car"

09TP, Syracuse, New York 05/06/2021

Extremely bad condition. Dirty, lack of maintenance, lack of overall cleaning. The entire place had a foul smell. We checked in late or we would have found somewhere else to stay.Best Western should dissociate this hotel from

"Clean, nice people"

User 30/05/2021

We stayed here after flying in from out of state. Place was clean. Pool wasn't open, but it was cold anyways. Nice staff, close to the airport, and shopping. Very reasonable!!! We will recommend to others

"Never again !!!"

User 23/05/2021

Booked through another site. Was visiting for my sons college graduation for two days so I figured it should suffice. Was I wrong it was the worst room I've stayed in. The place looks like if given some tlc or maintenance it could be ok. The bathroom tub was horrid the toilet seat was coming off, room smelled, towels were dirty. Then when I complained they said they'd move me with my kids to another room of which smelled like marijuana and cigarettes. Didn't trust the hotel so took all our belongings with us at all times. Didn't get housekeeping so asked the front person for a garbage bag for the trash that had built up and he wanted to charge me for it!!! The toilet paper roll was ised by previous person and saved for us. There were boogers on the wall!!! I wouldn't stay again even if it was comped !!! Beware ! Has a great location but is horrible . Will not be revisiting.

"New name should be Stay Away"

Michael S, NYC, United States 23/05/2021

Dirty, run down, broken elevator, filthy hallways, lumpy old mattress, extremely noisy AC, rude staff, etc. Avoid staying here there are many other nice hotels on the same strip. I had stayed here many times before the new management took over and was always satisfied. Now it feels like a $29 truckers motel.

"This "motel" does not belong in the Best Western Family!"

LELAND H, Buffalo, New York 20/05/2021

Upon arriving, I was told that I spent too much on the reservation, and should have booked by calling them directly. I booked through the Best Western website. They would not give me the lower rate so I felt like an idiot. The place has potential but needs to be cleaned and spruced up. Our room was near Door #2, so we approached the building from this part of the building. I've never seen so many cigarette butts all over the entrance - obviously has not been swept in weeks! The breakfast room was fine as far as the food goes, but utensils were limited and there was no one to service the dining room. Had to get the front desk clerk. While filling the supplies, she said nothing to the senior gentleman that was in there barefoot, coughing into his hand, then using the same hand to pull on the lever for coffee, juice, etc. Totally disgusting. Very nice covered pool area, but it needs to be ventilated. I was getting a headache and trouble breathing due to the very strong odor of chlorine so I couldn't stay very long. The place has potential, but needs deep cleaning and sprucing up.

"Try cleaning up"

kimquinngary, Niskayuna, New York 15/05/2021

The room was adequate, the window looked like it had something smeared on it and the curtain was falling. No security at all, not the place to stay if you're alone. Halls and stairs were filthy and in need of repair. The exterior was filthy with garbage and all kinds of beer bottles. The grass needed be maintained. Best Western shouldn't have their naon this place.

"Sure DONT Stay"

bubbles53171, Selkirk, New York 14/05/2021

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. What a mistake! Upon walking down the hallway to our room, the weed smell was very strong. The furniture was all chipped up, the bed had a visible down slope. The bed was ROCK hard. For internet access, there is usually a password screen, however, the no password was needed to connect (don't know how safe that was). Almost every electrical socket in the room was too loose to plug anything into. Usually there is a lock on the external doors so guests would have to swipe their card to get in. The external door that we used had no lock, no card reader and in fact, where a lock had once been was just a hole. Anyone walking off the street could gain access to the pool and any rooms at any time. My hotel key became deactivated (my fault-too close to phone I guess). When I asked for a new one, the front desk clerk never asked for id...just activated a new card and handed it over. She had never seen me before. So unsafe. Overall cleanliness of the hotel property was poor. Dirty tissues laying in the hallway were there when we left in the morning and we noticed they were still there upon our return in the evening. I guess you get what you pay for, but this was the worst. Will NEVER stay at this hotel again. We did not feel safe at all staying there. We unexpectedly had to stay another night in the area, but we checked into a different hotel instead of staying in this hole again. Beware!

"Please fire this employee"

User 09/05/2021

On 5/9/2021, during the night shift, I experienced the worst customer service ever. This employee literally ignored phone calls from my bank and bent over backward to not give my partner a place to sleep. I still don't understand why I lost three hours and 7k worth of chase points for a room here that nobody slept in. My bank has had to launch an investigation.


V373QKpeterm, Shirley, Massachusetts 08/05/2021

This hotel has a great location. Very Coinvent to highways, shops and restaurants Clean room. with prompt service Pleasant staff. Only downside, par breakfast. One could do a lot worse than this hotel.. CONSIDER !

"Worst night ever"

David M, Jamestown, United States 26/04/2021

Hotel is Dirty and doors not locked at night. Pool closed at 9 and people drinking hung around the pool until 11:45 yelling and running around could not sleep. Housekeeping knock on our door around 8:45 woke us up. Asked us if we need towels,


User 26/04/2021

WOW, Where do I start. The rooms were only given one towel, when i wiped up with the only towel i ended up getting a black pube in my mouth, (......i have blonde hair/ the thought still turns my stomach). Asked for an extra towel and was told by the very rude staff they were booked and had no extra, felt so dirty from sleeping in the filthy beds while scratching worse than a dog with mange the next morning i was tempted to use the dirty curtains as a towel. dropped my debit card behind the tv stand and upon pulling it out found something was at least being accomadated , (rat or mouse nest wasn't about to wake it up, rather polite of me i'd say). pool was ice cold nd green but what the hell the rich in chlorine water probably acted as a disinfectant, little added protection among being on the safe side and getting a tetnus shot the next day. People were using drugs pool side, (yes they're greedy so don't bother asking unless you have cash. As for the prostatutes only saw them in the parking lot, I give them 4 stars they at least smelled better than the room, the nice girl i seen might of had an adams apple but the surgery was complete, thanks for the company christal,( I was joking when i said i loved you!)


User 22/04/2021

By no means is this hotel trashy, but it does need some TLC and needs to possibly keep a better eye out for guests who may be smoking, because I absolutely smelled some. And it seems the pool needs cleaning...swimming in a pool where I can barely see the lower half of me isn't a clean pool, just overall cleanliness needs better upkeep.

"Sure stay Albany stay away from thier"

User 16/04/2021

We stayed for 2 weeks due to us being in transition didn't have a problem the whole time we were thier checked out and they fraudulently charged me $250 called the manager still have not received a call back from her it's been over 2 weeks since being thier.luckily I have a great bank who noticed the charge and noticed I had used my credit card at a gas station 6hrs sad about this I was going to come back to stay but now won't.

"Excellent stay"

sneakersniffer54, Mechanicville, New York 13/04/2021

The swimming pool was terrific along with breakfast and the free WiFi the staff were respectful and very helpful will definitely be staying there again A+++++ service and staff Rooms were very clean deodorized sinks and tub cleaned up very nice no streaks on the mirrors windows were perfect bed linens were fresh clean soft and comfortable. Pillows and mattress too.

"Horrible hotel— avoid if possible"

User 06/04/2021

This hotel is dirty, with peeling and stained furniture, water- stained walls, and smelly rooms and hallways. Furthermore it is very unsafe— the parking lot was unlit, back and side doors did not lock, and the lock on my room door was even broken. I left immediately.

"Hotel is run down"

rjb1313, Cicero, New York 29/03/2021

Bathtub was really dirty and slimy. Breakfast room carpet was extremely worn out. Bed was comfortable. House keeping knocking on door at 8 am to see when we were checking out. Just walked into the room at 10. Check out is at 11.


taral361, Boston, Massachusetts 29/03/2021

BEWARE!!!! I had to come here with my 7 kids for a business/personal trip to be closer to my job since we live over an HOUR away. I booked through priceline & got 2 rooms & am currently still a guest in 1 room as of right now (not because I want to be TRUST ME) but it would be too hard to relocate to another venue. Anyway the rooms are OK. Its a non-smoking hotel yet smells like a cigarette factory every morning & my kids have asthma and medical issues which it caused problems. The staff are rude as hell and the manager Laura does NOT care about any of the guests. All the facilities are closed due to covid and poor staffing, you receive what used to be a nice breakfast in a paper bag they literally gave my kids bagels & candy the other day, the pool is somewhat warm but small so lots of people theres no social distancing and barely anyone wears a mask. Half the time the ice machine is out of ice, there's not garbage bags you have to provide your own, no one asks if you need anything the customer service is horrendous, theres no place to really hang out outside so the kids were riding bikes and playing kickball in the parking lot which is pretty much empty and my 17 month old found a heroin needle (which my partner got gloves & disposed of) when brought to the managers attention and requesting some kind of incentive to stay she had the audacity to say watch your child better HELLO what the hell do you think I was doing thats why we made it safe not the hotel they could've cared less, they also have a bad reputation for drug use because colonie police department is patrolling their parking lots on a regular basis and harassing the guests who are just minding their own business. The owner said this is not acceptable but the manager basically made it clear she doesn't care (Laura) and she can't do anything to help. Its basically a cheap run down option if theres nothing else available and id give ZERO stars for all aspects of the stay except the pricing through priceline and the pool option. I will most likely NEVER stay here again and NEVER recommend this place especially because their management sucks and is beyond rude. Needs a job not pertaining to people!

"Skip this one"

Hannah W, Rochester, New York 15/03/2021

We gave this place a shot since it was so cheap with fairly good reviews. Well you get what you pay for! There were a lot of issues with it including a filthy pool, broken items in the room, abandoned maintenance items around the hotel, lethargic/apathetic staff, stained sheets, a strong smell of gas two of the days, etc. You can tell it was once a nice place and the lobby was well decorated but we were joking that it feels like the place was abandoned and no one bothered to tell the front desk staff to stop booking rooms.

"Used To Be Great Here, Not Anymore"

Xiao Yang J, Plattsburgh, New York 04/03/2021

I had been to this place a few times before Covid and my experiences were great. This is the first time I stayed at this place since the pandemic and my experience was not very pleasant. First off, when I checked in and it was close to 11 at night, I thought the guy at the front desk was a bit unprofessional because he looked like he was just tired of his job and I was not recognized as a BW reward member also. The lady came in after 11 was nice but still a bit unprofessional in my opinion. During my stay, I requested if there are rooms available on the second floor and also on the pool side when checking-in, but the guy said the second floor was closed and I had no problem with that. Later I had to switch to a different room since there was like ventilation running outside my room and it was just too loud for me to sleep. I had no other problems with that room though. But after I switched to another room, man that room was the worst hotel room I've ever been! For some reasons, the room was clearly occupied and had not been cleaned. The beds were a mass and there were hairs and stains on the beds, tables, and in the bathroom. Trash had not been emptied out as well of course. Not sure why it was like that, but house keepers should communicate with the front desk if the room has not been cleaned so the front desk would have known and leave the room unoccupied. I had to ask for an extra blanket because the original blanket was like just sheet literally. I got woken up by a crackhead(I met him the night before in the hallway and he clearly looked like there was something wrong with him and he even asked me if I smoke weed, I denied and he asked why, what a stupid question to ask honestly)at 5 in the morning. I recognized it was the same guy because the voice was the same. He was trying to open my door using the keys, but failed of course because he was trying to open the wrong room then he started to smacking my door. After smacking for a couple of minutes, I finally said yes because I was asleep and he might finally realize that he was trying to get in the wrong room. I heard he went to someone else room and did the same but yelled as well this time with some curse. That might not had something to do with the hotel, but for me I've never had something like that before. I had been to this place a few times before covid and I never had any problem during my stays. But not this time. I probably will avoid this place next time when I need to stop by in the area.

"Do not stay here"

egenser2021, Brushton, New York 02/03/2021

Horrible location and room. I've traveled so much and this was by far the worst hotel I've ever stated at. Dirty rooms, heat didn't work well, stains on sheets and blankets. Pool was disgusting. Do not stay here.

"No Toilet Paper or Tissues in the room, Pool is kept Cold and not heated."

801stevenp, Toms River, New Jersey 01/03/2021

We were told over the phone the pool was heated. When I arrived he said we don't keep it heated. There was no tissues or toilet paper in the room and I was told they don't have any. Strange. Hallways are cold. Room was standard but older but fine. Smelled funny but overall standard overnight hotel.

"No quality or service"

Carol V, Kingston, New York 13/02/2021

Very unhappy. First non smoking room reeked of smoke. Would not service us our grab bag breakfast at 905 when it clearly stated 10am. The creamer in the lobby curdled. The parking lot and sidewalks were full of ice and snow. The side door look was broken . The phone in the room didn't work.

"Problem with the cleanliness. Poor service."

lisa162430, Albany, New York 09/02/2021

Towels were dirty and filthy. Poor service. There were no accommodations. Everything was being blamed on covid. Bad and poor service. Bathtub was dirty in the tub and all over the walls there were hair, disgusting. Was not comfortable. Toddler fell in tub, it was too slippery.

"Business owner"

mercedepayano, Albany, New York 02/01/2021

Loud radios, smell marijuana, dirty sheets and the breakfast was horrible. One staff working for 130 rooms or more in New Year's Eve. The place was dirty, poor maintain example fire extinguishers expired, doors broken and

"Great Hotel!"

User 04/12/2020

This hotel is an excellent value. It far exceeded our expectations. We are actually back right now to stay again which shows how much we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, the hotel common areas were kept clean, the outside was also kept clean. It is a great bargain without making any sacrifices. They have a modified breakfast due to COVID 19, the fitness center is also closed. The pool is still open which my son really enjoyed. It is an excellent location, right near the airport. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. Overall it was an excellent experience!

"Below Best Western Standards"

MoneyPenny89052, Henderson, Nevada 12/11/2020

First my review has nothing to do with the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The property is very run down. It was suggested we park in the back of the building due to location of our room. There was zero lights in the back of the building. It was dark and we felt very unsafe. We went back to the front and hauled all of our stuff quite a distance to get to our room. The room was not very clean. Very run down. Sheets were stained, toilet did not flush well. By next morning it did not flush at all. The black bonded leather desk chair was ripped. The cleanliness was a level that we left very early in the a.m. without even showering. Had it not been late at time of check-in and had we not already traveled over 8 hours with a dog we would have left and found other accommodations for the night.

"You get what you pay"

leed809, Montreal, Canada 09/11/2020

The price is good but the place isn't that nice rooms outdated and bathrooms old looks this place really needs a spruce up, When you walk in the hotel looks clean tidy and comfortable but it's rather different once you have your room, it was cool and the window was left open I checked in at 2200 and the room was cold, So heating on to take the chill of the place and on the walls the have a odd decor of waves very strange bed was comfortable which was good. The bathroom was small and very outdated ceiling water damage walls damaged in the sink no hot water and the shower was Luke warm and was leaving at 6 am


User 22/10/2020

The property needs to be updated. Stayed here a few times but this visit is my last do jot recommend. My room was dirty (bed sheets, comforter, towels) there was hair all over the room like they didn't even bother to clean. How do you not clean with a pandemic still going on???? Breakfast is a waste too might as well get a more expensive hotel to stay that gives quality breakfast. I had a little disagreement witb the lady at the front desk. I woke up early for breakfast since my son is doing remote learning. Went to go get breakfast with my man and decided we were going to bring a breakfast bag back for my son. Front desk staff insisted that she can't give us the three breakfast bags since it's only 2 of us and that my young son needs to come get his breakfast himself.. I told her to check my room that I booked for 3 people so why can't I get the third bag. She stated it's policy.. Anyways the bag only had a granola bar some 50cents corner store donut apple & orange or apple juice. She acted like the bag had anything special 0/10 I do not recommend

"DeDe was the only good thing about it."

MiSTERDoC82, Newport News, Virginia 21/10/2020

Drove up from Virginia to see some family and we booked here because it was cheap but not Motel 6 cheap. We thought, "Best Western? Should be at least ok." This place was a shady motel disguised as a Best Western. It reeked of weed and cigarettes, the tub was stained, the beds were uncomfortable with toddler pillows and the pool was inconveniently located right outside the rooms and was not promptly shut down at 9 pm as the sign suggests. They require a $150 deposit for incidentals? Like what in that room was even worth enough to require $150 to fix it? The only ray of sunshine was the woman at the front desk by the name of DeeDee (sp). With a phenomenal personality, she was there to help us with each and everything that we needed. She deserves 5 stars but also deserves to be working in a much nicer place than this.

"Horrible! Don't stay here"

Terry M, Saranac Lake, New York, United States 08/10/2020

Property and room is beyond outdated and rundown. Downright creepy! The Manager/Owner? is awful. They have a $150 deposit and I could set fire to the entire room and not do $150 damage! Very dark, no security at all, dirty and worn. They really need to start over at this point. The neighborhood is not bad but the hotel makes its own bad area. I can't believe Best Western still has their name on this place. Don't be fooled into staying here it is not worth it!

"Definitely spend your money elsewhere!"

Raenita G, Troy, New York 21/09/2020

This was my 2nd trip here first time was just okay was for kids just to swim so wasn't a big deal the damp moldy smell still there a month later hotel is run down simple enough but it was cheap and again for kids to swim so whatever first stay employees were very nice and helpful able to book another room no issue . This stay THEY LOST MINE AND ALOT OF MY FAMILYS BUSINESS i stayed 30 days prior to this stay and didn't pay any deposit just however much the room was and moved on I originally had 2 rooms called to reserve a 3rd got told no problem and hung up.. check in they still only have 2 rooms booked No biggie just add on a 3rd. Cool well when was i going to be told about the 150.00 deposit for each room ? Again stayed 30 days prior and didn't pay any deposit then when I questioned staff he was very very rude about it moldy smelly hallways cigarette butts in hallway nice pool but everything around it needs a update AC in room barely worked just overall done with this place

"Lipstick on a pig"

User 19/09/2020

My family and I were looking for a place to spend the night after a long day of driving and due to the Best Western name thought this would be a decent place to stay. The pictures seemed nice enough and our initial impression was that it has recently been renovated and looked very inviting. Until we got to our room. I immediately noticed a smell which I couldn't place at first until I saw the mold everywhere. We were so tired my wife just decided to lay down and sleep rather than change rooms. All we needed was a couple of beds anyways. Beds were comfy enough. Then the morning came and we saw the condition of the bathroom and shower. No one wanted to go near that. The door was cracking in half from water damage. The shower itself had mold and soap scum all over. The spout in the tub wasn't even sealed. It was disgusting. During a time of heightened awareness to cleanliness you would think they would pay attention to these things. I emailed the general manager after our stay with pictures. Not even an email back. Would never stay again.

"Prostitution ring"

kburrell0301, Plattsburgh, New York 09/09/2020

During our stay the rooms around us were running a prostitution ring. We even heard conversations regarding the cost for a prostitute or 3. They partied all night and the front desk did nothing. After complaining, the group pounded on our door. We were scared to death.

"Much to our surprised...the hotel was closed when we arrived."

angeposs, Rochester, New York 04/07/2020

I made reservations by phone and actually talked to a real person, not on-line, not automated. He happily took my reservation and told we the hotel was re-opening on July 1st. We booked for 1 night July 2nd. When we arrived the places was deserted, locked and doors chained. I contacted Customer care. Sandra was very nice, professional and apologetic but said her system shows the hotel was closed until July 15th. The sign on the door said the hotel was re-opening JUNE 15th. Clearly a case of one hand not knowing what the other was doing. Will be watching my credit card bill to be sure I am not charged as a "no-show" by the system that not only sent me a confirmation email but another "reminder" the day before our stay.

Laura Rummel, General Manager at SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Albany Airport, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. The situation you describe is very unfortunate and I'm sorry that you came away with a negative experience. It is certainly not the experience that our management team and staff work towards creating for all our guests, I sincerely apologize for the confusion of the hotels re-opening date.

"Do Not Stay"

nicevisi0n2020, Ashburn, Virginia 08/03/2020

Nothing is worked. Mostly this is for people like to live in smelly place. Nothing working in room. Bed is bad. Heater keep on running. most of the outlet doesnt work. No need to have key to enter room. all entrance are all wide open. keep your valuable safe. mostly this place is like smelly and junk room

tammyb460, Alexandria Bay, New York 08/03/2020

My boyfriend and I came to the Albany area to visit my son who attends UAlbany. We chose this hotel from the "Hotels Tonight" app because of the rate offerred and the hot breakfast. Extremely pleased. From the time we arrived (Sat @ 4pm) until we left (Sun @ 10am) the staff was ALWAYS cleaning and smiling. This hotel is very clean. Very good hot breakfast, pool area looked great) and the location is great. The only reason we gave it 4 star is because toilet seat was very loose and tub backs up with standing water and doesnt drain properly (rm 128). All in all we will definitely stay here again. Great job!

"Nice room"

haley6414, Peru, New York 05/03/2020

My family of 4 stayed at this hotel before traveling out of Albany airport. We requested a room by the pool and were given a room with a 2nd door right to the pool area. Staff was friendly but front desk was always busy and only 1 person was working every time we visited so the wait was often excessive. They had a shuttle to and from the airport and parking at the hotel during our stay was significantly cheaper than at the airport. Would stay here again.

.I have sent several families for the car parking service alone.cheaper than airport.breakfast very good.i left my coat in the room,a week later they had it for me,with my money still in the honest staff,worth a lot to me

"Convenient to airport, not a very nice hotel"

Michael P, Elmira, United States 05/02/2020

I'd bypass this hotel. Needs repairs and upgrades.Close to airport is only plus. Bed not so comfortable, breakfast mediocre, bad water pressure, limited hot water, loud bathroom fan, parts of ceiling cracked and coming down

"A weekend get away"

godisgood272, Utica, New York 31/01/2020

it was very relaxinf and we did get some need rest and we would like to return. We always stay at best Wester when we visit Albany to catch a flight or just go shopping. We love the area and we will return hoping all of our issues will be resolved. Thank you

"Best Value Ever"

Melanie F, Burlington, Massachusetts 28/01/2020

Beautiful pool! Nice rooms directly open to pool area. With my 3 young children that was the most awesome part. Lovely, do it yourself breakfast, large area to sit and eat . Nice bar too. We worked out too, that was very clean area. Can't be beat, best price for all that.

"Strange, but nice"

User 08/01/2020

The rooms are definitely dated, but fairly clean and not at all smelly. I would advise a room toward the back of the building if you want the least amount of noise. The price is definitely good. Nice friendly staff.

"not a great stay"

User 29/12/2019

The hotel is not well maintained, it is dark, and the rooms are not very clean. No elevator, so you have to carry everything up to your room if you are on the second floor. There is an indoor pool, but it was so cold in that area, you would never swim in there. Just not a good room experience. the beakfast is good.

"Great value, location and safe."

User 12/12/2019

The staff are very professional. The park, fly, and stay program is the best value and the shuttle service is always on time and very courteous. A relaxing nights stay before an early flight and the knowledge that your car is safe and if needed, they have the equipment to “jumpstart” your car after a long vacation in the frigid northeast is very comforting. I can't rate this hotel experience higher than 5 but would give it a 10+ if i could.

"average stay"

NewYorkBowhunter, New York 22/11/2019

"Good Place To Stay"

t0mj865, Plattsburgh, New York 30/10/2019

This was the first time I stayed at a Sure Stay Plus hotel as well as the location. The front-desk staff when I checked-in and out were very friendly, professional, and helpful. As well as the housekeepers. The breakfast they have is very good and will come back for sure when I'm around.

"Great clean place"

PattyA82, Little Falls, New York 27/10/2019

This hotel is a great place to stay with clean rooms. Professional friendly staff. The parking lot is well lit and a safe place. Internet works well. The breakfast is well worth it. Great variety of foods.


thoungcon, Long Island, New York 25/10/2019

The pool was clean, the bed was comfortable, breakfast was good, the bathroom was clean, the personnel were friendly and knowledgeable, the price was adequate, I was able to sit by poolside and relax.

"Great stay at airport"

genej0hns0n, Easley, South Carolina 23/10/2019

Arrived and was greatly appreciated for our choice of accommodations. The staff very friendly and knowledgeable I had ask about the shuttle to the airport and was immediately scheduled for pickup the room was very nice and comfortable. Excellent hotel

"Extremely Outdated"

User 17/10/2019

Hotel is dated. Looks like a 1970's hospital was converted into hotel. Carpet looks like originally installed when hotel open. The plumbing may or may not work. King rooms are spacious until you get to the bathroom you can't move around. You must stand on toilet to close door. Good luck at getting a hot shower.

"Great Option for ALB"

IslandishTravel, Amsterdam, New York 16/10/2019

We are a business located just outside of Albany and have guests fly into ALB about six times a year for training sessions. We have been using this hotel for 5+ years now at a group rate. While there have been some bumps along the way, things have recently made a turn for the better. The hotel has been updated and the staff has improved. They are very accommodating and friendly and offer great shuttle service. We also want to give a shout-out to Nusair, who is our new reservations contact. He has been providing superb service and communications and I really hope he sticks around. He recently went above and beyond and it did not go unnoticed. Keep up the good work and we'll keep the guests coming!

"Dirty Bathroom"

User 15/10/2019

Both the toilet and tub were filthy in our room. The wood on the bathroom door was frayed and peeling. Surprisingly, the rest of the room was fairly clean. We were just too exhausted from traveling all day to ask for a different room, as we were only stopping to sleep. The breakfast was fair, typical Best Western quality. There was a pamphlet for HBO listings on our table, but the TV did not get HBO. When we called the front desk to inquire about it, the girl said, "I don't know, I just work here."

"Dont let the pictures fool you!!"

Melissa R, Concord, North Carolina 14/10/2019

If I could give them a zero I would! This hotel is horrible. The lobby was beautiful but the pictures online also gave a false impression of what was to come. The person on the front desk was pleasant. We entered our room and it was not clean. The toilet seat was not attached to the toilet and around the bottom of the toilet did not look like it had been cleaned in months! We immediately grabbed our things to go and get another room. Again, the front desk person. Was very accommodating and gave is another room and he personally walked us to the room to inspect it. It was clean to his standards but not mine. There was mildew all in the shower, another loose toilet seat and very dirty cracks and ceiling tiles. Dont be fooled by the pictures. I chose this hotel due to the location near the airport and only stayed because I got there at 12 am and was exhausted. Thank God for shower shoes....which really didn't help because when you turned on the shower the water backs up like you ran a bath. The water was still standing when I left this morning. Please do not waste your time or money.

"Used park sleep and fly"

Nursemate001, New Hartford, New York 14/10/2019

There were 3 people in our party. The check in line was long and only 1 person to check in customers. We had a room with 2 double beds. The room was extremely small and over crowded with furniture. There was was a table and 2. Hairs. A desk with a Chair that didn't fit under the desk or table. There was no room to move in the room and put all our suitcases. We did leave for dinner and noticed that when we returned that we didn't need our key to enter the hotel from the side door and found the door was open and didn't lock. This was not good for security. The mattresses on the beds were saggy and uncomfortable. Need replacing. The bathroom had mold around the tub. The drain in the tub did not drain. I passed on the shower because the shower didn't drain after the first person's shower. We didn't experience the breakfast because we left before serving. We had an early flight. A Togo snack bag would have been a nice touch. The shuttle driver was pleasant and we were at the airport in plenty of time. On the return trip we missed the first shuttle and had to wait for the next trip. The driver was pleasant, brought us to our car( it was late at night) and helped us with all our suitcases. I don't think that I would stay at this hotel again if I needed a park and fly again.

"Where does that "PLUS" come from?"

HermanTheGerman-inTX, Dallas 08/10/2019

Lady Shonta greeted me very friendly upon arrival and assigned me a spacious king bed room upstairs as requested with my reservation. The room had a desk with chair (torn up cushions), dresser, a sofa (but no coffee table) a fridge with freezer shelf and a microwave. The ceiling showed water leak damage. The bathroom was rather small and the shower had some mildew on the tiles. The hallway and room had a sweaty/stale smell. Otherwise, the room was clean and fine. Between 2 and 4 am, other guests walked the hallways while speaking loud and uncaring about other sleeping guests. The usual Best Western breakfast was served in a large room with plenty of seating.

"Pete & Millie"

User 05/10/2019

Pete & Millie always stay at this hotel because of its location near the restaurants, and the Mull which is within walking distance from the hotel. This hotel has a great swimming pool and continental breakfast is great.

"Go Elsewhere!"

SciGirl, Brooklyn, NY 01/10/2019

The location is good but that's the best thing about this hotel and there are so many other options around, that you should just go elsewhere. From reviews, I was expected a worn but dependable hotel. Unfortunately, my ground floor room smelled faintly of cigarette smoke. Worst there was mold on the shower tiles and the tub didn't drain. We managed to unplug it after several hours but unpleasant to deal with. Also for a family of 4, we were given only 2 towels, after trekking to the front desk to ask for stuff (shampoo!) it became tiresome after a long drive. The front desk staff are nice enough but pleasant hotel staff doesn't mask the bad condition of this hotel. Also if you're a light sleeper, the walls are real thin, and I'm a heavy sleeper, still I got woken up in the middle of the night by noisy neighbors. The hotel felt like a crappy Motel 6 but at Best Western prices. If I had known, I would have saved money and stayed at a Motel 6.

"Stop over on the way to California"

User 01/10/2019

We had an early flight to California so we stayed the night. We have stayed here one time before so I figured we will stay again. Like the first stay, not disappointed. If we have to stay overnight for early travel, I will only stay here. THANK YOU!!

"The worst."

User 15/09/2019

Where do I begin? This is by far one of the worst hotels I've ever seen. Upon arrival it looked dated, and we couldn't check in yet. The desk attendant told us we could leave our luggage behind the desk, not in a back room or anything but right in full view. We were not comfortable with that but did it anyway and went to grab lunch. Upon check in, my first room had sagging beds and a horrible smell, so I asked to switch rooms. The second room had sagging beds, a pungent cigarette smell, and a cobweb with insects in the shower. I asked to switch again. The third room had a spider in the sink, and then the hair dryer, which I checked since I'd be needing it, started smoking and fire sparks flying when I turned it on. I asked at the desk to get a new hair dryer, and they told me to take the one from the last room (impossible because the dryers are mounted on the walls.) I asked for a 4th room, which was better but at that point I'd seen too much. Each time I asked for a new room they gave me keys like it wasn't a big deal without asking me for my old keys, and later when I thought I'd left something behind they gave me keys to all 4 rooms, which made me feel incredibly unsafe if they are just handing out keys. I'd walked thru the pool area several times and kids were in there screaming so loud you could hear it inside the guest rooms, and kids were swimming in the dark because there aren't lights which struck me as pretty dangerous as there is no lifeguard. The staff were as helpful as they could be, because they absolutely know it's not a good place (and admitted as such), and I definitely saw tons of cleaning people during the day. It just is so run down that no amount of cleaning can fix it. I called BW corporate and they refunded me and I left, as did 5 of my friends with their own rooms. Again the staff was great about it, so I can't at all blame them. Save your time and money. BW needs to shut this place down or overhaul it. There are several other wonderful hotels within walking distance that are relatively the same cost and 1000X cleaner. Go next door to Homewood Suites.

"Needs renovations"

Shelley07, New Hampshire 10/09/2019

We really used to enjoy coming back to this hotel every year but the last time we stayed on Labor Day weekend we noticed that the place is falling apart, it really is getting dirty and dated. The hotel needs updating. Our room had some stains in the bed and my husband actually had to call for a new fitted sheet. The bed spread skirt also had some questionable stains. We had booked two nights through Orbitz but we actually left early the second day because it was that bad. Hope they do some refreshing or renovations soon. Check in Staff was very nice and I did not complain to them as it is not their fault.

"Best check in staff possible"

Biker126, Fernandina Beach, Florida 09/09/2019

We were finishing up a 360 mile bike ride on the Erie Canal and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay great. Our dogs were as welcome as we were. Perfect end to an incredible week of riding.


frankvolpicelli, Brooklyn, New York 29/08/2019

We have stayed at this hotel many times and this last stay was the best. we have already booked our next trip in October for a 2 night stay. We stay here because our daughter is attending U of A and it is close by to the university

"Excellent place to stay"

User 25/08/2019

Great place to stay, friendly staff and amazing amenities. Close to great restaurants and malls. My son is at University at Albany and we live almost three hours away so we will be staying at Sure Stay multiple times a year for the next couple of years. We really appreciate the feeling of home away from home in a great neighborhood.

"Good for the price"

Willywonka33, Allenton, Wisconsin 24/08/2019

I would probably come back. I think they need to do some updates. I also believe the staff should follow through when you ask for something and they say ok. Don't like the fact that they DON'T have an elevator. Restaurant on site was very good and very friendly staff.

"Save yourself the heartbreak and go for the $50/night hotel "

Crittertrips, Rosemont, Pennsylvania 15/08/2019

The quality is the same. While the staff were very nice the place was dingy, smelled musty and the mattresses were sagging. I could not get out of there fast enough. Hotwire sold it as a 3.5 star hotel but I have stayed in roadside motels that were cleaner.

"Stayed here for a dog show"

AnneK448, Rochester, New York 12/08/2019

We needed an affordable location that was pet friendly and close to I87. We also hoped for a bar and restaurant. The positives: nice area to potty the dogs; excellent hot breakfast. The negatives: hotel is kicked and needs upgrading. Bathtub was old and scary and water pressure was terrible. Took ages to get hot water

"Good breakfast with plenty of options, nice pool, and good rooms. No 'extra' though."

User 09/08/2019

The place was nice, didn't smell at all. Good selection for breakfast and nice area to eat it in. The room was clean. Basic room to fit the costs. The bed's were the only thing lacking. Bed felt like the cheapest available. It was ok, but not a very comfortable bed.

"Nice hotel"

John C, Brookfield, New York 04/08/2019

Nice hotel, but quality starting to go down now that is a sure stay property, when the hotel was Best Western branded the quality was alot better, now with the new re-branding the property is starting to slide down hill, it's the little things, like in room alarm clocks, new surfaces of the tub...very slick. Overall it's a good value, but if it continues to slip down hill will be looking for another BW property

"Family trip"

User 02/08/2019

We stopped here during a family trip. It was well priced and the rooms are nice. Front desk was very nice Dunkin donut right next door. Plenty of other restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

"Super friendly front desk"

sraahoch, Annapolis, Maryland 30/07/2019

My friend and I stayed here the night before our flight to BWI. Terrance and Shonta has great chemistry together and welcomed us with humor, efficiency and great smiles. Nice breakfast the next morning and the shuttle drivers were weary courteous and friendly. The room was great too!

"Pick another property"

whatscookingjen, Batavia, New York 30/07/2019

Hotel is in need of a complete overhaul. From untrained staff (gave out room key to someone who entered the lobby without asking for name or ID, just gave key to the room number they asked for); to outdated rooms that felt a bit dirty, to uncomfortable mattresses that allow for little sleep, to a mediocre breakfast. I wouldn't recommend this and glad we had only booked 1 night at this property.

"Great staff, but not the best kept."

User 30/07/2019

I really enjoyed the staff friendliness and their breakfast. Everything went great until I went to shower the next morning and saw hair in the bathtub and a stained and dirty shower curtian. I'm sure I just got a bad room. I do have another stay scheduled with them and it wasn't bad enough for me to want to cancel that reservation. Good hotel if your looking to travel on the cheap.

"Great value for your money!"

Robin S, Irvine, California 27/07/2019

It may not be the newest hotel around (it shows it age in places) but you get a good V as lue. The beds were comfortable and clean, the breakfast was what you would expect and the kids were happy, pool was refreshing... Nothing fancy but it worked for a two night stay. Close to the airport and walking distance to restaurants and Urbered to shopping (shuttle was busy). Great value and vert friendly staff! No complaints!

"check your sheets and towels..."

User 22/07/2019

linens looked questionable, I called front desk and they did offer to switch rooms but we were on our way out. They came and replaced all linens but still.... ewwwww. This is a COMMON occurrence at hotels.. so do yourself a favor and check. It's not just budget hotels..I think the maids don't know when people are checking out and they just fold up towels and don't replace.

"Need an exterminator"

mcroft172481, Fly Creek, New York 18/07/2019

Upon checking in my son noticed a huge bug on the floor from across the lobby. We walked over to investigate and after doing some research later I was able to identify it as a cockroach. Our (first) room appeared to be clean, however my son noticed a couple of small ants on his foot. We brushed it off, however when we got into bed that night there were ants covering the night stand, and IN OUR BED. I asked for a new room. The next room we were out into had an awful, thick smell of cigarette smoke/ashtrays, and upon brief inspection all of the furniture was shabbier and we found garbage left behind the dresser that housekeeping had apparently overlooked. For all of this we were given 10% off of our room rate “for our inconvenience”. Not good enough!

"Bad Experience"

User 14/07/2019

This was our first time staying at the hotel and we were very disappointed. First we had to signed a no smoking agreement form, then they place us in a room that was full of smoke. Request for room change- then we were place near the pool, but the AC was not working properly room was hot, report the issues twice was told it would be look at and fix by the time we return- did not happen the ceiling had multi water mark, the bath tub was dirty. we will not be staying at this hotel again.


pauliefromthenorth, Emmonak, Alaska 09/07/2019

The shuttle drivers to and from airport were very courteous and prompt. The breakfast was adequate to good. The rooms and hall were another story: Rooms had water damage to a ceiling that was peeling in places, the bathroom wood door was shredding at bottom, the rugs in room and hallway were filthy, the mattress did not have a wrap. Though none were found, the exposure could be conducive to bed bugs. No elevators: ADA? Bathroom was clean and bed was comfortable. Price was good so I guess I should not complain.

"Just as nice as high end hotels at half the price"

Moveup, Alexandria, Virginia 09/07/2019

Almost every brand of hotel is located along a couple of blocks of Wolf Rd. I picked the SureStay Plus because of the price, expecting it to be adequate. I was happily surprised that it was comparable to hotels that cost twice as much. Lobby area and restaurant/breakfast room are very nicely decorated. My room was very comfortable and everything worked. Lighting was better than most high-end hotels. Towel bars in the bathroom, which you don't always find anymore. All of the staff -- shuttle driver, front desk, housekeeping, breakfast room -- were cheerful and helpful. What more could you want from an airport hotel?

"Great Staff - a comfortable and pleasant stay"

Anna955, New York 07/07/2019

We choose this Best Western because it was close to our son's home. We were very happy with our stay. The staff was excellent - very attentive and sincerely caring about making our stay pleasant. We would stay here again.

"Made son sick"

Mobile12331392454, Columbus, Ohio 05/07/2019

The room we stayed in had leaking pipes from the room above. The carpet was damp and mildewed. The room was dirty ( cobwebs, tub had a bath mat that had not been cleaned under, the room had the general appearance of disuse and neglect). Our son was physically ill from all the mold and mildew.

"Great combination of value/comfort"

User 05/07/2019

We stay here a lot. They somewhat recently changed the name which confused us at first but the check in process was easy (and cheaper than and they allow pets so it's our go to. Relatively quiet, and they had easy parking. We did not eat this time but usually the breakfast is pretty good as well.

"Great Value / Location"

Departure30561347232, Poughkeepsie, New York 03/07/2019

Great value and location for my conference at Capital Region BOCES. Close to shopping (just in case you forgot to pack something) and many restaurants to choose from. The staff were very helpful when I asked for assistance.


User 03/07/2019

Room was clean but some outlets did not work, next to vending machines so we heard the generators all night humming. Outside doors were not secured so they opened freely...Breakfast was good. Pool was inside and very hot in that area in the summer.

"Not impressed at all....."

Rhonda H, Steep Falls, Maine 03/07/2019

Before I booked here, I read reviews. I felt that this hotel had good overall reviews. I felt confident we were going to a good hotel. When we got into our room there was no toilet paper on the dispenser (not even an empty cardboard). Not really a big deal. There was no plug for the bathtub drain. And the sheets on the bed looked like they hadn't been changed. The mattress pad under the fitted sheet was crumpled under the sheet, there's no way the bed was made fresh. When I walked into the bathroom there was a used, yes, USED, Q-Tip in the toilet paper dispenser. At this point I went to the front desk, the longest walk ever. The lady at the front desk didn't seem to understand my concerns. All that she got out of all of these things was that I needed toilet paper.....I tried to tell her, that I had a roll on the counter, no I didn't need toilet paper. I wanted my bed made with clean sheets. She did not understand and handed me a roll of toilet paper and dismissed me. She did ask if I wanted a plug for the drain in the bathtub....I declined because I was not going to sit in the tub. The clerk never offered to switch our room or send someone up to change the sheets. At this point I was so frustrated I walked away because it was better than causing a scene. Needless to say, we slept on top of the blanket. Also, the ceiling looked nasty. The walls are thin, I could hear the people in the next room talking. I don't mean muffled sounds. I hear clear conversations. I wanted to send Best Western all this review, but I cannot find a place on the website to email them. I will say that other staff members that I met in other areas of the hotel were courteous and nice. I don't think I will ever go back to this hotel, sadly.

"Convenient to Albany Airport"

Venture55983607333, Utica, New York 26/06/2019

Place to stay right near the Albany Airport with parking and shuttle service. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast bar is included or you can do grab 'n go. The shuttle driver was very nice.

"Many plugs!"

AubeBrunante, Gatineau, Canada 20/06/2019

This is a nice hotel in its category. What I particularly enjoyed was the number of plug to charge electronics. In addition to the usual ones on the wall and at the lamp feet, there was a special device with two regular plugs and two usb plugs. For a room that could accomodate four persons, it's a requirement. This hotel is the first where I was this. I was delighted not to have to plan and negotiate to charge all devices. I was also happy with the breakfast, with lots of variety. I would suggest one additional sort of cereals for people who found Raisin bran tasting too much sweet due to the hight amount of raisins. This suggestion is Special K with strawberries. If there were walnuts to add, it would be perfect. Staff was very pleasant. One guy let me know he was about to make noise in a common area due to having to vaccuum. That was nice!

From the outside don't look like much but the rooms were nice ,we had a room that went out to the pool which was very nice the pool area could use an updating the doors going out to the court yard need some repair as one slams and the other makes a nasty grinding sound and of course that was next to are room very loud in the pool area after 9pm when that was so called closed time over all nice time I know it's hard to police the area It wont stop me from staying here again but could have been better cause of the noise

"American Airlines put me up here, very nice, good breakfast!"

KCLJ520, Illinois 14/06/2019

The staff at the Sure Stay Plus was very nice, and helped me out a lot when I was stranded in Albany for an extra day. The shuttle to and from the airport was super fast and convenient, and the hotel was within walking distance to everything I wanted to do in the area. I walked down to the Crossings at Colonie, which is a really nice park, ate dinner at the Outback Steakhouse, and every restaurant and shop is just a short walk away. My room was very nice, the hotel is remodeling, but the bed was comfortable, pillows new, and furniture was nice. Got to switch back and forth between the Cubs-Cardinals game and the Blues-Bruins game, so that was an enjoyable later evening after dinner! Free cookies in the afternoon too! Good experience, I appreciate the hotel and its very nice staff!

Connector51002653820, Oswego, New York 06/06/2019

Would not recommend this location for a stay. The overall appearance of this hotel is dirty, broken doors, dated furnishings and tattered carpeting. Service at the front desk was rudeness and aggressive.

"Staff was great, but the overall cleanliness of the hotel is not great."

Maps67709176682, Queens, New York 30/05/2019

We had a number of problems with our room and items not working. When we spoke to the staff they were quick to resolve any issues they could, but there are some things they couldn't fix - a short in one of the wall mounted lights, the door to the bathroom would stick or wouldn't close and there is no signage to tell you 2 of the plugs only work with the overhead light on. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable, but the cleanliness of the common areas left much to be desired. We booked the hotel for the pool which was very nice, but was not as clean as one would hope along with the area around the pool being very very slippery (not just from water).

"Avoid this hotel!"

Bramasole2012, Bluffton, South Carolina 27/05/2019

We booked after checking reviews figuring it would be a typical simple, clean accommodation for one night. It is beyond rundown. I think people rent rooms to use the shuttle for airport and skip the cost of airport parking. Exterior is unkempt, lawn unmowed, courtyard was littered with plastic bags, rolls of old carpet, trash, and cigarette butts. Everything looked like it had been bought piecemeal from other hotels that were closed. I'm okay with that. But dust it. We did the usual bed check and the mattress was dirty and urine stained. I took a picture of the mattress to the front desk and checked out. On a positive note, the staff was very polite and accommodating. The hotel is in dire need of a compete renewal.

"Very Pleasant"

Tracy G, Mooers, United States 27/05/2019

Nice hotel Great Rate Staff was pleasant Nice Breakfast Clean rooms Lovely pool and amenities Great value for the money Next door to great restaurants. Although the hallways seemed a bit outdated the rooms were pleasantly fresh and well appointed

"Do not go here"

User 26/05/2019

I booked a room and got one on the first floor by door 3 the bathroom smelt like sewage and one of the queen beds had a dead bug on the bottom sheet and dried blood apot on the top sheet. I called the front desk and they couldn't bring me sheets but said he could change my room at 130am with a sleeping 2,5,and 9 yr old. Smh

"Capitol visit - you get what you pay for"

ggbatlb, Long Island, New York 25/05/2019

Booked this “hotel” (more like a motel) based on the reviews. Sadly, this facility is really trying but failing. Mostly everything is old and outdated. Our room had a weird odor as soon as you walk in. You get used to it but smelled bad at first. The bathroom was gross with stains in the tub walls and dingy bathroom. The beds needed new springs or mattresses and could have been a little bigger to fit 2 adults. Otherwise was ok. The price was great, so getting what I paid for.

"Great place to stay before a flight"

Mobile33464319947, Oneonta, New York 15/05/2019

We booked this hotel last minute before a flight and it well exceeded our expectations for the price. We booked with AAA discount but forgot the card, woman at the front desk was super understanding and still gave us the discount. Since we had a late flight we were able to get a late checkout (12pm) at no extra charge either. We did not bring a car and instead got a bus to the hotel, so the shuttle took us to a restaurant on Wolf Rd. that night, and to the Colonie Mall the next day to kill a few hours before our flight. Comfortable bed (albeit a bit firm) and a bathtub in the room, decent breakfast. Some minor cosmetic issues in the rooms (some water damage on the wall closest to the bathroom and a bit of torn up carpet) but for less than $100 I genuinely did not care. Would 100% stay here again.

"Loved this place!"

lynnw124, Bath, Maine 14/05/2019

We've been on the road for 16 days, so have stayed at many places. This was by far the best in all categories except “is bed comfortable”. There were 2 queen beds and we selected the one with most advantageous view of tv as I'm sure 99% of people do. Middle of the night wished we'd chosen the other one. This one was a little soft as in I kept rolling downhill towards my husband. In every other category, such as: Cleanliness, nice bed linens, excellent buffet breakfast compared to comparable chains, and quiet other than occasional planes, (and they they seemed to stop at either 9 or 10) I'd give a 5. Now, mind you this is priced as middle of road in pricing, not luxury or high end


User 07/05/2019

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Heater/air conditioner worked great. Close to the airport. Breakfast was okay. Fried eggs were rubbery. Staff was polite and friendly. Price was reasonable. Would stay again if need arises.

"Sure Stay Wolf Road Albany New York"

Ernest L, Clifton Park, New York, Usa 06/05/2019

Perfect for me. Close to airport and clean. Staff is great including the little bar inside call Scenario's. They are doing some renovations but hardly bothered me at all. Stay there most always when I go to Albany.


User 03/05/2019

Unfortunately the room we stayed in had a musty odor. Not to mention the hallway smelled of marijuana. The noise level aswell was out of control. I have always stayed at a Best Western and had never had such a poor experience. I will say that the staff however was friendly.

"Trip to Howe Cavern"

roberttZ9961UW, queens, United States 28/04/2019

I like the location of this hotel, it was very convinient for restaurants and shopping centers, good value for the money, very good breakfast included, and ice size, warm swimming pool. Service and renovation in rooms can be improve the experience here.

"Great value for the money as of April 25/2019"

btwoods, Victoria, Canada 27/04/2019

True HD tv, not stretched out SD, true high speed wifi, comfy bed. I would return again. ****I now have an issue with Trip Advisor though!**** My comments were over, but the stupid Trip Advisor site would not accept less than 200 characters. Hotel was good but trip advisor pissed me off

"Very Good"

JaaXxii, Wellington, New Zealand 21/04/2019

We found this place to be very good as an overnight stopping point on our road trip across the NE states. The room was clean and comfortable, and the facilities were very good. The location was also good - close to several shops and the airport is nearby - I would recommend this to anyone.

"Superior Accomodations for the Price!"

AshBernadette88, Mashpee, Massachusetts 13/04/2019

Don't be deceived by the dated exterior of this establishment...this place is great! Very friendly staff greeted us as we entered, and they were kind enough to put us on the first floor at our request. The room itself was very large and clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower water hot and high-pressured. The room came with higher-end shampoo/conditioner, soaps, and lotion. The room was also very quiet, despite this hotel's proximity to the airport. The accomodations were also excellent! The gym is among the nicest I've seen, and the pool is large, clean, and in a very well-lit room (allowing for swimming year-round). The breakfast spread is also very good. There's a great variety of cereals, breads, pastries, protein options, yogurts...the list is endless! There is also plenty of seating available, including traditional table/chairs and comfy couches. Finally, there is an in-hotel restaurant that can make orders to go. We ate here once and it was good! If we ever find ourselves in Albany again, we'll certainly be staying here!

"A good deal"

bryjak, Bloomingdale, New York 13/04/2019

A great price for the room and leaving the car for 18 days as we vacationed in California. The hotel is only five to seven minutes from the Albany airport – very convenient. I was impressed by the staff. Helpful and attentive to our needs. Pretty good breakfast as well. We will be staying at the SureStay Plus – and leaving our car – on future trips.

Laura R, General Manager at SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Albany Airport, responded to this review
Thank you for your positive feedback on the hotel. We are so glad our park and fly option met your need. We know that traveling can be overwhelming and we are happy that we could help take some of the burden off of your shoulders. We will see you next time you have a vacation!

"The price is right!"

msjcfink, Buffalo, NY 10/04/2019

I've stayed here many times while my daughter was attending UA and living in the area. This weekend will be my last stay as she's moving back home. I'm disappointed at how many reviews I've read so I had to write my own. While the BW is not the top of the line, it's by no means a pit. I've always had a clean room, friendly and helpful staff and a comfortable stay. The decor could be updated, sure but who cares? I watch tv, read my books and visit LLBean, Whole Foods and Trader Joes when I'm not out and about doing something with my daughter. I'm usually paying $75-80/night and I get a great breakfast! There are waffles, cereals, yogurt, oatmeal, juices, potatoes and other warm things (don't ask me because I'm vegan and I don't eat them), but get this my dairy-free friends...the offer almond milk! How cool is that? I've stayed at other hotels in the area who have no-dairy options. I think there are free cookies when you come in too. I was quite skeptical about this hotel as the other BW in the Albany area was horrible, but I enjoy this hotel and have recommended this hotel many times. The only negative recently was when stayed in March, there was a lot of noise for road construction. It ended before I went to sleep but started up again quite early. But, that's not the hotel's fault. If you're looking for an upper-end hotel, there are those that you can pay in the hundreds or more in the area. If you are looking for a basic, clean room where you can rest and get a good night's sleep and breakfast, stay here.

"Close to airport, the right price!"

NYBob6, New Hartford, NY 06/04/2019

Shuttle to the Albany airport in 7 minutes. Close to a myriad of restaurants on Wolf Road. A new name, but still the same Best Western. Rooms clean, spacious. $99 +tax for park and fly. Front desk check in easy. Attendant friendly and helpful. Perfect before your flight!

Laura R, General Manager at SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Albany Airport, responded to this review

"Cold pool"

User 31/03/2019

We stayed at this hotel to get away with the kids (3,5) to enjoy the pool. We arrived and checked in, got ready to go to the pool, arrived at the pool area and the room was freezing, and the water was ice cold. Told the desk and they acted like they didn't even care

Laura R, General Manager at SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Albany Airport, responded to this review

User 25/03/2019

It looked like they were remodeling the hotel which did need to be updated but it was still very clean and my only complaint would be the coffee maker was not clean. The bed was comfortable and we were in an awesome location right off of I-90. Very friendly staff coming in and going out. Thank you!!

"Not So Comforting"

Stacey F, Plattsburgh 18/03/2019

If you need to move in the bathroom, this is not the place. You have to straddle the toilet to close the door behind you. The shower never gets hot or relaxing, pressure wise. Only had 2 bath towels for a 4 person room, staying 2 nights. The pool is much smaller than the picture and is lacking a hot tub. The rooms are cleaned moderately, but could be better. I found an old used soda cup under my bed that was super sticky. The walls are thin, as I could hear everything in the hallway and in the room next to me. This was my first stay at this location and my last.

"Always a very pleasant experience"

Coopster07, Plattsburgh, New York 12/03/2019

We have stayed here several times previously and have always been satisfied. There is a swimming pool (Water warm but air cool because it occupies a large, open indoor area) and an ample breakfast which consists of fruit, yogurt, juice, waffles, pancakes, and eggs. The rooms have always been clean and on occasion when we might have forgotten something, they always were happy to oblige with a missing amenity. Wi-fi seemed good.

Laura R, General Manager at SureStay Plus Hotel by Best Western Albany Airport, responded to this review
We are so happy to see that you had a pleasant experience at our hotel. Your feedback is invaluable and we will be happy to share it with our staff. We were especially happy that you enjoyed our full hot breakfast and hope to see you again soon. Hope you have a fabulous day!

"Very Convenient Location to Airport"

User 10/03/2019

Accessible Room was clean and spacious. I had problem adjusting heat at a comfortable level. The room was too dry and needed a humidifier.The staff was very helpful. However, breakfast needs to be improved with omelette or boiled eggs and freshly cut fruit. Great place to leave the car for a week.

"uhm very low priced.....the bar is nice the food is good but"

redwineandpringles, Beverly Hills, California 09/03/2019

I checked in somehow someone didn't get my card info.After I was upstairs in the tub, I get a FRANTIC call about my bar bill demanding a card to pay. I was like what? Then I unplugged my phone due to repeated calls regarding this. Then someone tried to get into my room thru the adjoining door! I went down to PAY for my bill - how the hell did I CHECK IN with no card? (right) Then I was leaving this a.m only to find that they do NOT provide any secured luggage check. NONE - Best Western does not consider this a STANDARD , I asked if all rooms are required to carry mattresses! Ridiculous. Its also VERY COLD in winter. VERY colllld! Donna bartender is great and the chef who worked 3/8/19 with her - Chris? I dont know..great cook! Drinks are low priced. Bar was cold though. (67degrees)

"Do not stay at this hotel"

User 03/03/2019

The bathrooms are dirty, the pool area is a freezer and the water is not warm enough for that cold area. They charged me $69 for checking out an hour late on 2 out of the 5 rooms I rented but charged me 69 for 5 rooms. the wifi sucks. The front desk people are rude!! Asked for towels never got any. I ended up checking into the hotel next door.

"Wouldn't Recommend"

User 28/02/2019

We stayed at this hotel one other time about a year ago and it wasn't that bad. We were returning home from a roadtrip so we just needed a place to sleep for the night. When we arrived at our room after checking in we noticed that the room across from us was playing their music rather loud. No big deal we figured they would turn it down by 10. 10 came the music was still loud so we thought maybe by 11 they would turn it down. It was still playing unreasonably loud at 11:45. We are talking teenagers riding around in the summer in their sports cars with their windows down loud and that was from our room. We called the front desk to report it, the guy said he would take care of it. A few minutes later we hear him tell the lady in the room that we complained and said her music was too loud and the lady's response stating that it was us. The right thing for the front desk guy to do was to go tell the lady her music was too loud and ask her to turn it down. There was no need for him to tell her who did it. The lady and her friends in the surrounding rooms decided to spend the rest of the night slamming their doors, having loud conversations and giggling outside of our door, knocking on the ladys door and yelling housekeeping, going into the (inside) pool area which states it closes at 9 pm and making noise which echos really loudly. Just to make sure our stay was extra wonderful our bathroom was also loaded with ants. I love Best Western and the Albany area so I'm sad that this hotel is such a disappointment! I will state that when we stayed at this hotel a year ago I'm pretty sure it was a Best Western this time it was called "SureStay by Best Western." I'm not sure what the SureStay means as I've never stayed at one.

"Should've stayed at Motel 6"

User 25/02/2019

I would NOT recommend this hotel. I stayed for 1 night and upon check in the front desk clerk was unable to answer any of my questions. She wasn't helpful and I hoped the room would make up for the service. I paid for a queen size room with 2 queen beds. The room was "the same size as all the other rooms" (meaning a standard double room) and the bathroom was clearly skipped during the last round of cleaning. The only positive was that the bar soap was made with argan oil (great for skin) and the morning clerk was able to answer my questions from the previous night. Overall the hotel suited my needs but I won't be staying there again.

"Conveniently located"

Edward1976, Rochester, New York 20/02/2019

This place is ok not bad but not great. The price wasn't bad could have been a little cheaper but specifically for a week day night. The 1st time I stayed in a Sure stay. Breakfast was not bad at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking.

"Great hotel"

User 18/02/2019

Great hotel, nice prices. Nice pool everything was great . Had a slight problem with the keycard 3 times during my stay but the front desk handled it quickly and was very nice about it. Lots of places to eat around the area

"Comfortable and clean"

willnotcook, South Glens Falls, New York 30/01/2019

I had a flight cancellation and ended up in Albany overnight. My husband, back home, made me a reservation for me at this Best Western. As I sat in the airport, I looked at the reviews on TripAdvisor, they were not encouraging. However, I had a very pleasant experience. The nice warm courtesy van picked me up at the airport at midnight in a snowstorm. Very friendly staff checked me right in, my room was fresh, clean and comfortable. I didn't make it to breakfast because I slept in, can't comment on that. The common areas aren't luxurious, but it looks like some updating is going on. No complaints from me! Also, bonus, there's a fridge and microwave in the room.

"Nobody knew what to do"

User 28/01/2019

The hotel was cold. I was charged an extra $15 and nobody could tell me why. The breakfast was cold The pool area was freezing. I wish I could have went to the hotelBefore I booked it because the pictures made it look perfect!!

"Avoid this hotel, especially in the snow"

Companion15656175194, La Verne, California 23/01/2019

Walkways not cleared; had to drag suitcases through knee deep snow and then go up snow covered stairs. Found room unmade from last guest and when housekeeping came to clean she left a dirty rag on the bed when done. Gross. Heater did not work (set for 75, reached 69) and doors & windows not sealed - you feel the cold air coming in. Wanted to change rooms but that meant dragging suitcases in the snow again.

"Great Value"

User 15/01/2019

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. Went swimming in the pool and had a delicious breakfast. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. Even the welcoming cookies when we signed in were delicious!

"Needs major repair"

Delly66, New York 13/01/2019

Indoor pool not usable. It was 40 degrees in the pool area with no heat and mold in the shower. No heat in the breakfast room. The only thing good was the shuttle to the airport. If you are picking the hotel for the pool don't go.

"This was a Best Western years back and has seen to have gone down hill a bit."

vlcnyc21, Staten Island, New York 13/01/2019

Place was clean, service was slow but nice. No hand grabs in shower so seniors beware, noisy bathroom fan, and Small Bathrooms. Shower hot water slow in coming but it comes in time. Breakfast was limited but nice. Not a bad place to stay but I would not go out of my way to stay there either.

"Dissapointing Experience- Bed Bugs"

User 06/01/2019

My mother and I have stayed at this hotel annually for several years and never had any major issues, however our most recent experience was extremely dissapointing and we will surely not ever stay there again. After staying two nights at the hotel we noticed a number of bites on both of our bodies. As it was the middle of winter we knew that it could be mosquito bites we complained to the front desk that we believed we were bitten by bed bugs. We were told that a manager was not on site, but that this would be looked into and we would be contacted. We were not contacted by anyone. We filled out the online survey and received an extremely generic response that did not address the issue we brought up (bed bugs). We have attempted to call and email management to discuss the issue and have not received any response within the past week. Photos Attached.


User 04/01/2019

fine great service great breakfast and nice conference room good restaurants on main rd, clear parking lot, help unloading goods into hotel. Hotel sleeping rooms are fine with plenty hot water, Staff always around to adjust problems.
