Stayed one night passing thru and found a blue pill on the floor and the bathroom shower was broken. Bed was clean and so were the sheets. A bit too perfumy for my taste (like cheap perfume). I wouldn't stay here again. We had to open the door to let the air out. Front desk was nice however smelled like...

Travelled with my wife and kids to Canada from Ireland, with 5-7 days visit to NYC planned also. We used Albany as a 'half-way' point and decided on Motel 6. Room that was pre booked was not ready, i.e not even cleaned from previous guests. Receptionist was nice, but, had a 'shrug shoulders' attitude. We eventually settled on the 3rd...

The room was clean, but very basic. Air conditioning loud. Non-smoking room smelled of smoke. Parking lot was well-lit and felt safe; however, intoxicated guests hung around the back entrance. I needed to ask for fresh towels and they were quick to try to locate towels but didn't have a full set of clean towels to offer me. I needed...

Don't expect much! Make sure you take off the top bed cover because it's not clean! Won't forget the check in staff gave of the wrong room at first .. So embarrassing trying to open a room door that someone is inside already! Good thing... It was a quiet night's sleep

We were travelling with dogs and needed to stay for one night after being on the road for more than fourteen hours. I saw the negative reviews, but ever hopeful and extremely tired, we decided to overnight here. The desk clerk was unpleasant. The hallways were overpowering perfumy and failed to cover up the cigarette smoke smell. The bedspreads were...

While the pictures are how the rooms look there is much need for a stronger maintenance team. Room was dirty, curtains falling off window, bed sheets stained with burn holes and even non smoking room hinted of smoke. You are getting what you paid for. Pillow's are cheap motel 6, your where a sad sad mess.

I'll be honest, it's hit or miss with Motel 6. I've stayed at good ones and bad ones. This one was the latter. On the good side, they have renovated the rooms (excluding the dingy bathrooms) and the beds and pillows are really comfy. On the bad side, there are sketchy looking people hanging out in the parking lot late...

Good news, bad news. Bad news, this place is sketchy. Parties down the hall, the smell of pot and it seemed like there was foot traffic up an down the hall all night. We did not feel safe. The good news? The good news is that you have been warned.

Check this one as the option when going through Albany, New York. Very clean, hardwood floors, very comfortable bed, good water pressure. No fears about parking lot or building. Doors open from clean hallway. Best thing was it was $55 on a Saturday night. No need to go anywhere else, even if for a few days.
