Stay at Parker Hotel.
Old hotel in, at best, fair condition. Remodeling in the works. It was close to Amtrak station.

……at least it didn’t have bed bugs.
As a point of reference I have travelled so much in the last 30 years for both business, pleasure and family that two separate properties have recognized me with a gift for over 100 stays. When you’re on the road as much as I am, you will undoubtedly end up with horror stories. This hotel, was without a doubt the worst in all my travel. When you look at the pics online it presented as a charming old school small town hotel. The surrounding area is wonderful with theatres and restaurants and loads of small town charm, but the second you walk through the hotel doors you know you’ve made a mistake. Firstly door is locked during all hours so you have to phone a number to get someone to let you in. Once inside the desk clerk couldn’t find my reservation, I showed her my confirm and she trusted me so gave me a room on 7. The elevator from the lobby is old, poorly maintained and dirty, nobody would feel safe. When I got to the room there was all kinds of waste in the garbage cans and some poop left on the sides of the toilet from last guest. The shower, which I didn’t use, had visible mold on the tiles. The wifi and TV service were down. I pulled back the sheets and lifted mattress to look for bed bugs, thankfully none. So the best thing I can say about this property is it doesn’t have bugs in room 704. I wouldn’t feel comfortable letting my family or friends stay at this property.

8/10 Very Good

I just needed a bed for the night, as I was in Schenectady for a wedding. I read good reviews from the past, and recent bad reviews, but stayed here anyway. The room was fine. Bed, comfortable. Microwave, and mini fridge (Slightly cold).The shower, large, but the shower head is terrible. No pressure… seems they are under renovation, and trying to make things better. AC not working, but fan provided. One man running everything, (He was very nice when he was actually there…), but Front desk often vacant. Only a cell phone number to call, and you may get no answer… No bar, breakfast, ice or coffee (yet). Still, I liked my room, and would stay here again. Less expensive than other nearby hotels. Great location, right next to Proctors Theater, restaurants, and Sunday large Farmers Market across the street.

6/10 Good

Property is in a great location in center of town. But the AC wasn’t working in the lobby. And, we got down graded from a king room because of a queen room because the AC was not working in any king rooms. Overall, it wasn’t terrible, but could have been better.

6/10 Good

The Parker Inn and Suites has so much potential. It seems as though they are suffering from zero staff and their current staff just does not care. Ownership clearly does not care because there was camera equipment everywhere that looks like it was just installed and packaging not thrown away. The guy that checked us in gave us major safety concerns. As all of my information was written on a paper and he used it to text me.. instead of the food delivery service and followed us up to our room to "check it out" with us... No one manned the hotel so if you had an issue or a security issue, good luck. The room was partially clean... the air conditioning did not work and the room was 80 degrees with no fan provided. I would recommend you not stay here, for safety as well as sanity concerns. The staffing issue is clear they need a revamp.

Truly disappointing
Our visit started with the front door locked & no one at the front desk. I had to peer inside to see that I had to call a phone number. The person told me to put the security code to get in. How can I do that if I’m just trying to check in? Person said, “OK, I’ll come down,” as if it was an inconvenience. We arrived at 5 PM, so not real late, but told that the room we reserved was having issues with the A/C on a hot day. I could either take that room, or a smaller room. We were 3 adults—two parents and their young adult child, so we couldn’t take something smaller. He asked if I’d like to inspect the room, so we did. At first glance, the room looked okay. The windows were open, but he implied again that the A/C was inconsistent & maybe he could bring up a fan. Thinking the A/C might work, my husband, son, & I moved into the room. I paid for the room in full up front. It wasn’t until later that I noticed dirt on the floor, there weren’t enough towels for 3 people, & since I said to the front desk person that we’d be using the sofa bed, there were no linens provided. The shower head didn’t look that clean. Overnight, the A/C was dead--it was hotter than hell. It was noisy outside; it sounded like motorcycle drag races going on. We couldn’t sleep. We were going to say something the next morning about our experience, but again, no one at the front desk. There was no offer for a discounted room for the A/C inconvenience. Poorly managed. Would not recommend this place.
