We were in route and needed a place to stay the night. We witnessed less than desirable people. Gun shots were heard several times. Beds were uncomfortable to say the least. If you're looking for a quick place to stay overnight this would be a spot for you. Overall not a 2 star hotel.

No breakfast here.

Pros: Price
Cons: Serve breakfast if you're going to advertise it.
In spite of what the hotel information says, there is no breakfast served.

Scarey run down part of town

Pros: Easy drive to downtown - only 2 blocks away!
Cons: Coffee available and hot water!
Location: 2 or 3 blocks from downtown Proctors theatre but wouldn't walk there!
Few blocks from ambulance service so sirens all night, Run Down part of town, NO HOT WATER and NO COFFEE! Other wise clean, TV worked ..... electrical outlets were smashed.... holes in wall of shower. Would not recommend to anyone I know.

Very comfortable, clean, big, nice hotel

Pros: The staff and the comfort of the room
Cons: The interior decorating.
Location: The location is only about 3 block from the Proctor's Theatre in Schenectady, NY and near Union College.
We've never used this hotel chain, there were no reviews on it .. but once we got there and checked in, it was great. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful. We needed to use a cab service while we were there and they helped us out. The room was a lot bigger than expected and was very, neat, comfortable and satisfying. There was a continental breakfast included, but I believe that it was just bagels and coffee, which I don't do either. The ice machine was broken but they had bags of frozen ice available for you to have. The overall stay was enjoyable for the length of time that we were there. I would recommend to a friend to stay if there were no other available.

Nothing fancy, but no problems either!

As noted by some other reviewers, the hotel is in a downscale area--however my wife and I were never apprehensive.  An East Indian family seems to be running the hotel, and the three employees we encountered were very pleasant.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
when we checked out the management was friendly. he asked if we were comfortable, did we sleep well,was the room clean. he was very concerned if we had a good night. of all the hotels we have stayed at he was the only one that was interested in our stay. it made me feel that i was important.

you get what you pay for

I neede a place to sleep on the road, and it accomplished that. This is not a vacation spot. I stayed there in the past and it was not great. They now redid the whole place very nicely with new furniture and clean bathrooms. It is a functional place.

DO NOT STAY HERE!

I stayed here a few days due to business. This place is a dump and has no right to even call itself an EconoLodge. I was quote one price over the phone by the front desk staff, and it was higher on check-in. Front desk was rude and indifferent. The room and bathroom were filthy, there was drug paraphernalia in the bedside stand drawer, I asked for the room to be serviced and it wasn't, bath towels were a little bigger than hand towels and smelled bad, etc, etc.... The list could easily go on and on. I am extremely dissatisfied in all aspects of this property, and would not recommend this property to anyone.

Worth it!

We were looking for a deal, and I'm not gonna lie when we drove up we were a little concerned! But once we got inside we were pleasently surprised! The room was cleaner then most, even better then some of the more expensive hotels we'd stayed in. The bed was super comfortable, it was quite, and it was just what we needed! \nAs a picky experienced traveler, i would reccomend it to anyone looking for a great room at a great price!

family visit

we were so pleased with our recent stay at the econo lodge in schencetady,ny. the rooms had recently been refurbished. the new bathroom was sparkling clean & fairly roomy. the pillows & beds were extremely comfortable. the motel is centrally located in the downtown area & the expressways were nearby & easy to access. the staff was extremely helpful & courteous. we had 2 rooms for 4 nights & thought it was an excellent value. the downtown area itself is in state of transition, older buildings are being converted to new housing & shopping options.
