I was on business in the Albany area and decided to pull into Howard Johnson hotel. The room was reasonably priced, I booked it for 2 nights. I had dinner nearby with friends, went into my room about 10pm and crawled into bed. When I woke up, I pulled the sheets way back as I got out of bed. That... More

Room smelled like smoke, mold, and pee. I thought it'd be a less expensive and nice overnight stay before my flight, but I was tempted to leave and pay somewhere else. There was broken shower rods. Holes in the ceiling and walls, and cigarette burns on multiple surfaces. Gross.

The room was spacious, bed was comfortable, and had everything you needed. Nice complimentary continental breakfast. Convenient in very short walking distance to at least 3 very nice restaurants. It was convenient for attending a concert just 12 minutes away. The only reason I gave a 3 was because the room had a musty order, which I tried to air... More

After staying at other Hotel's around the Albany Area. And doing some comparison, we have come to a conclusion that Howard Johnson is the Best. When it come to a place away from home.

Overall nice, bathroom could have been more clean with attention to details. Internet was slow. Room service did not speak English. Bed was a little hard.

I've been a guest here for many years now when I come to Albany to visit family. It's convenient. It's easy. It's close to everything. It's comfortable enough. The air conditioners work great. Breakfast is good. The owners are nice. Check in and check out only takes a minute. And you can't beat the price. Add some feather pillows and... More

The room was dirty. Needed toilet paper in bathroom..... Very old facility which is in need of refurbishing. Pass on this one... However, the attached Italian Restaurant was pleasant. Would not return to this establishment

So disappointed in the customer service! Arriving back at the hotel my door was open! After notifying the front desk I was directed to contact the manager in the morning... She apparently already reviewed the tapes by the time we got to check out and stated that housekeeping closed the door. But when asked if she saw me use my... More

Stayed for a night. Bed sheets hadn't been changed . My girlfriend cleaned for an hour with Clorox wipes. Bathroom fan hadn't been cleaned in a long time and was humming all night. Outdated bed spread. Won't stay there again. Was embarrassed to book there after stay.
