To start off with, upon arriving late at night, the Quality Inn road sign is not anywhere near the entrance to the property. Had to stop at an e Econo Lodge to ask how to find the hotel. The address is misleading. Had to change rooms after checking in because the air conditioning was not working in our original room. On our second day our door would not latch, so the manager came by and did a temporary fix on it. A male desk clerk and a guest were having a shouting match when we walked in one night over the guest's opinion of his room. On another day the housekeeping staff were having an argument outside of our room and I had to ask them to keep it down. The only good thing about this day was a comfortable bed, pillows, and a nice shower. Would not stay at his property again though.

the hotel had a very unpleasant distinctive odor the breakfast that was served was cold and or dried out I also was told that my room would be changed to accommodate people who booked through the hotel itself rather then through Travelocity which I found very upsetting as I booked and paid for my room weeks in advance and there were not any other rooms available due to the fact that it was college graduation which is the reason I was there The man I spoke to his name was Ross and he was extremely rude he basically told me I had to take what I was given or cancel may non refundable room because even though I already booked and paid for the room I did it through a third party and there for Quality Inn Central can do what they see fit and just change rooms. It turned out I got the room I was suppose to have but I did not know that until after I was already upset and aggravated people should be made aware that even if you have a reservation paid for in advance it does not guarantee that you will get the room you booked If there are no Guarantees why would I use your service I am very unhappy this entire experience put a damper on a very important occasion

Left 10 minutes after check-in. Room had a foul smell and was advised from front desk that it was probably mildew. Checked-out and went elsewhere.

Good, inexpensive hotel. Poor acoustical control.

Pros: Empty refrigerator. Inexpensive, Near airport. Easy parking.
Cons: Acoustics between rooms.
The facility and room were nice for an inexpensive hotel. It had a real refrigerator, not one of those that are fully stocked and you can't use them to refrigerate anything of your own. Unfortunately, a couple on the floor above was shouting at each other until 2:30 AM and we could hear it all. This surprised me because the floor construction is precast planks, but they must not be grouted properly. The door also let us hear whatever was said in the hallway, but that was only occasional. My son and his wife in the room adjacent to ours could hear the argument also. Breakfast met my needs. Raisin Bran, skim (or 2%) milk, and an egg patty. They also had waffles.

Very Nice Motel at a Good Rate

Pros: Attentive staff, clean room
Location: Lots of things to do in the Hudson Valley - history, antiques, leaf viewing, etc.
The motel was very nice. Staff was very attentive. So, all in all, it was a very good stay at a very good price.

Great value, clean, quiet modern rooms. Highly recommended.

I have stayed here before and stayed this time for a visit to Albany Medical Center. Although not the closest hotel to the hospital it is definitely the best hotel for the money. This hotel is conviently located off of the NYS Thruway, Northway and within a short distance to Albany's colleges, airport and the Capital District. A great mall is less than a mile away. The rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet and well maintained. It has an indoor pool but it was being renovated at the time of my visit. This is an excellant choice for the traveler not expecting a resort facility but but demanding quality and value.

Excellent!!! Highly Recommend. Will definitely stay again.

This is second time staying at Knights Inn. Staff helpful and curtious. Rooms Clean and spacious. Sofa bed added feature to sit and relax in the evening as well as the microwave and refrigerator. Fast food, pizza nearby (didn't look for restaurant in area....eating with family living nearby.) Cannot beat the price if looking for a motel without pool, exercise room and other added amenities. Continential breakfast adequate.

Nice, clean and inexpensive

I stayed here to visit with my son who is a student in the area. The price was right, the location perfect, and the services well provided. The room was clean, simple, and just what I was looking for. I would definitely stay again.
