Poor1.0 / 5
Needs more than a face lift.
We were going to Albany for several different reasons so it was going to be a crazy whirlwind weekend. To begin with I called ahead to speak with the manager about my allergies - she never returned my call. I called again and the person at the front desk assure me no problem. The room was no satisfactory upon our arrival and we were very short on time. With a disgusted attitude by the front desk we were shown 3 musty smelling rooms. I took the least offensive. I found broken glass one night walking from my room to the lobby. And several beer bottles all over their parking lot. When I wrote a review on trip advisor the hotel stated that two managers got in touch with me-- thus never happened. No one ever apologized - our room was musty, the beds very soft and I found dirty marks on the piece of a bedding. I would never stay here again.
