The room and site was barely acceptable. The room carpet was filthy. My socks were black. I know this hotel rented to local construction highway workers and that is where the black came from. But, that is not an excuse not to clean the carpet. The morning food area was fine except for the prepared food. The attendant sometimes wore gloves, sometimes not. The serving container looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The garbage cans in the diner were often overflowing and the drop away lid was covered with food debris. Don't eat the prepared food here! On the positive, my bed was clean and very comfortable.

2 star rating deceiving

Wifi didn't work, not enough electrical outlets, shabby linens, sink and tub drained very slowly, room smelled a bit like cigarette smoke. Was clean, staff friendly. Stayed in 2 star quality inn the night before which was much nicer so we booked this one. Very disappointing.

Don't bother if you want a hotel with a pool

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Staff-especially the pool staff
Location: Proctors theater
Terrible experience. Hotel uses a laptop which is frozen all the time They never want you to use or even look at the pool, They say it will open in half hour because of chemicals-not true, my family was never allowed to use the pool. Halls are dingy and dirty just as the neighborhood its locate Room are clean though and breakfast was ok. Don't book

Conveniently located close to the Thruway, and to restaurants and churches.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, free use of pc and printer.
Cons: free use of pc but not wireless.
Conveniently located to restaurants and church. The hotel was clean, and the pool looked inviting, though we didn't have time to take advantage of it.

Would not recommend this hotel.

Schenectady had limited options so, having had good luck with Quality Inns in the past, I tried this one. Clearly, this hotel had seen better days - room was not very clean, had to ask to have a bedspread exchanged because of unidentifiable stains,carpet dinghy and uneven (or was the floor below uneven?). The staff were friendly and I think there was a free continental breakfast.

Terrible night spent here

My husband and I spent one night here while visiting our son at college suffice it to say we will never return... Our room was not clean, the hallways were not clean and to add insult to injury there was No tea or Coffee until well after &:00AM when it had been promised for 6:00AM.... Inexcusable conditions.

Do not stay here the staff is crazy!

This time when I was going to make my reservation, the rate was a bit high, so I compared rates and actually could have stayed at the Hilton for less. The Hilton is a few miles away and the Quality is right around the corner from the kid?s home. So I did what travel experts tell you to do. I called the Quality Inn directly and asked for a better rate. They offered me a room for $* per night. So I took it. I was never asked how many in my party. When I checked in, I was asked how many people would be staying. I told them myself and my wife. It was only then told I was on the business rate and an addition guest would be an extra 5 dollars. I protested mildly but checked in. The first night was fine. When the kids came to visit me in my room the next day, we went down to the pool. Before we could even swim a lap the owner's wife came in and demanded to know who is registered here. I said myself and my wife. Well we were asked to all leave the pool. I explained to the woman that it had never been a problem before, and that we stay regularly. That was not acceptable to her. She left and my wife and kids were discussing the situation (Do we stay? Do we go?). She then returned and we were told to leave the pool or she would call the police. Then, was told to check out immediately. And I mean immediately. We went back to the room to pack up and was called immediately and asked how soon we would be leaving. We were given less then 15 minutes to leave . I found another motel within minutes as there are several around the area. Here is the weird part. When we called Choice Hotels to complain we were told that children under 18 stay for free. So I had a hard time understanding what set the manager off. The only thing I can think is the business rate must be for only one person, and that each addition person is 5 dollars. Which at that point, the Hilton would have been cheaper. But rather than explain that to me (If that is even true) the manager made a scene in front of my children and never discussed if there was a rate difference. So no matter what, I was treated badly, rudely and unfairly. The management must be hurting for money or are just mean and nasty. I don't know. But all I can say is unless you want to also be treated badly YOU DON?T WANT TO STAY HERE!
