I checked in with reservation. Got to the room and there were 3 police cars in the rear of the parking. My room was ok for what I paid. I did not see iron or ironing board. Appears that the carpet has been torn up and removed and replace with tile floor. The floor itself needs a good washing. There is paint pealing in the ceiling outside the bathroom door. The hairdryer was removed and the stainless steal needs a good polishing or replacing. King bed is different being on a short base and steel legs. Mattress what conformable. I guess I had to wake up desk clerk by a buzzer but I am glad that they could check me in. Over all owner needs to spend time fixing up his property and I might come back..

There’s no wake up service options. The bathrooms aren’t the most updated. They don’t give u shampoo and conditioner or have blow dryers in the rooms.

The room was run down, dirty floors looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months, walls were dirty, fridge was run down and dirty and clumsily sticking out from the wall. The sheets were clean and the toilet was clean.

A-hole at the front desk

Pros: It was cheap
Cons: Everything, scary part of town.
I made a reservation 3 weeks in advance and they stuck me next to the stairs. House keeping walked in 2 times in morning without knocking and when I complained the guy at the front desk said I don't think so. Calling me a lier . I told him I was calling corporate and he told me he was calling the cops.

Location was good for work

I had a downstairs room but the person upstairs was walking around half the night making noise and every time he ran his sink I would get a thumping noise by my sink that lasted about 20 minutes

Better than Expected

Pros: The updates
Cons: The bathrooms are still pretty gross, and they could have added a carpet or something. The floors are completely bare and kind of cold.
Location: Super close to downtown Albany and surrounding areas.
I've stayed at a number of Motel 6's, just for the convenience and cheap rates. However, I've always gotten what I've paid for which has been pretty disappointing. This Motel 6 was surprisingly OK. It wasn't fantastic, and definitely not something I would stay in for an extended period of time, but the rooms have been "updated" so they are much more clean than most Motel 6 rooms, they smell nice, and it just doesn't feel gross like most. Really not that bad, and totally passable for a quick 2AM - 10AM stay!
