"Clean, Comfy, Free Parking"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We stayed one night for a wedding at the State Room. Hotel parking is free. We did not allow enough time for walking on a hot day so we drove to a parking garage. Would recommend walking. Room was clean and beds were comfortable.

"Room was clean and so was the hotel."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Room was clean and so was the hotel. Plenty of parking. The breakfast was a nice variety and there was plenty of it. The pool area was clean and so was the fitness area. I would recommend this hotel if you are in the Albany area.

"Nothing to rave about here but breakfast."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Stayed one night, I had no hot water at 9 pm to get a shower. The phone had no dial tone, so I couldn't even call anything be about it. Deadbolt on door would not work! LIGHTS..let's just say the rooms are so dark. I couldn't get ice in the ice machine, empty. The set up of this hotel was really strange, exit signs all over but really just keep you going in circles. When we came off the elevator where it should tell you which way room numbers go, it was actually down the hall. Good things, my room was large. I have two queen beds corner room. The breakfast was actually really decent. That was a plus. For the price definetly go elsewhere. Neighborhood seemed a little sketchy.

"Decent Hotel"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We came on the night of 3/23/2019 for a concert. This was a good hotel choice based on location to Times Union Center. Pros: room was clean, nice. Complimentary breakfast was above average. Walking distance to the concert venue. Cons: the biggest complaint I had was that when I booked, the agency I booked about a month prior, I had the rep look for hotels within walking distance and had a hot tub. This was the best fit and pretty pricey. When we arrived the pool / hot tub was under maintenance and the desk lady's only comment was ?it's been under maintence for two weeks, it's on the website?, which I thought was pretty rude. Lets be honest, nobody goes back and checks websites after booking for that? We came for my wife's birthday and hours early just to use the hot tub so we were disappointed to say the least. I would have expected just a little more empathy for trained staff. Side note, the tub had no drain plug either, so the Holiday Inn must be a shower only hotel?.
