Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Pipe Sales Executive King Suite
This was the second time I stayed in an executive suite room (with jacuzzi tub, etc) and both times, the king bed was sagging in the middle. It seems that the king mattresses or box springs need some attention. Other than that, the stay was enjoyable, including two times in the hot jacuzzi tub for my sore back - nice!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scapi743 Cozy bed and clean room!
My husband, son and myself recently stayed at the hotel. The hotel service was outstanding, and the room was so clean. The beds were very cozy, my four year old slept like a rock! We would recommend a stay for anyone coming into the area!

Very nice motel, very quiet, good nights.. sleep. One day of the five we spent their the room cleanliness was not up to their usual standards. Only other complain. was the slow response to icy conditions in the motel parking lot..This is the usual motel we stay at when visiting family in the capital district,

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Busine365 ANTHONY was Incredible!!!!!!!!!
Anthony was spectactular! I travel a lot for business and have been to thousands of Hotels and have experienced every type of customer service imagineable but nothing compares to the service that I received from Anthony while staying at this Hotel in Latham. He always had a smile on his face, was extremely friendly and always consistedly greeted us in a personable and professional manor. He made sure that every part of our stay was enjoyable and it was because of him. He went above and beyond for us! One night it was very cold and snowing really hard and we were going out to dinner and were all dressed up, there was alot of snow on the ground and our car was covered. I had a nasty cold and my husband had a broken leg at the time and he offered to wipe the snow off our car and he did! I will never forget watching him go outside in his extremely nice suit (definitly the most well dressed at the hotel) and dress shoes and plow through the snow just to help out a guest. He was always looking sharp and had a very professional attiude. When I am in the area I will definitly choose this hotel based on the level of service I received from him! That level of guest service is not easy to find, you have a real gem at your hotel!

I travel a lot for work and stay at a lot of Holiday Inn Express units.
This one is by far the most comfortable and nice.
Mike at the front desk and Gail in the breakfast room always make me feel like I am at home.
Everyone that I talk to or come in contact with are excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lathamnative Friendly staff, great location, nice hotel!
We visit Latham 1-2x per year to visit family, and this has become our go-to hotel. The staff are super friendly, the rooms are comfortable (we got an update for our last visit, which was great), the location is ideal for visiting Latham, and the contential breakfast has a great variety of food. We've stayed in a few different Latham hotels over the years, and this one is the best!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mery125 Good stay
We live in the Latham area and were staying in the Holiday Inn Express for three nights while our bathroom was being renovated. The check-in was easy, The room was clean. The bathroom was very clean and in really good shape. My only complaint was the TV issue. It was on when we opened the room and was just a dark glow. Unplugged it, plugged it back in, nothing. Left it for the night. Called the front desk the next day, they sent someone up, worked fine that night. Next morning, nothing, remote doesn't do anything. Unplugged/replugged, nothing. So that was a big annoyance while staying in a hotel with a 4 year old. We got no real satisfaction on that one little part, everything else was great.

After a long night of checking out other area hotels and being disappointed, we finally got to the Holiday Inn Express at Latham. We were greeted by a very friendly front desk person, Anthony! He allowed us to check out a room and made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. The room was nice and big. The bathroom/shower area is clean and very big. Very nice amenities and a great nights sleep for a very important meeting the next day. Breakfast also had a lot of options. Definitely a great stay. Thank you!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dmc346 Still no staisfaction from management
Letting you all know that the upper ,middle, and lower management have yet to contact me regarding a pervious review.
Oh yes, there were some emails asking for more info. This action was no doubt generated by the previous poor review. These emails were answered with just that, more information.
Then silence. Which is worst ignored from the get go or some feeble, flaccid tease resulting in eventual 'more ignore.'
I have again contacted Guest Services.
If you happen to stay at this property beware.
Front Desk Manager indeed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LB051 Good Stay
Good stay, comfortable and received a nice upgrade to a King Suite as well. Room was clean and everything was as it should be. Breakfast was good and it is still nice to see the Holiday Inn Express performing that service included with the room stay. Not many do this and some even charge extra for it. I stay more at the Holiday Inn Express Hotels when available in that area. Staff was friendly and good. Nice to see a Military Veteran staff member working at the front desk and thanked him for his service! Just very good overall. Keep up the good work with all you offer and do. It is well worth the money.

I made a late reservation for a flight from Albany and left my car at the hotel using the hotel shuttle for an early flight and an evening return. Trevor was a great help with this and check in and out was very quick. Room was great and had a steak and clams in the Sports Bar which was very good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly413 Room not up to expectations.
When reservations were made I was told I was upgraded to a queen suite. Upon entering the room, clearly that was not the case. I went down to the desk to inquire and was told that I was in a queen suite. I was not. Also, and I realize we were in with many groups that night, but I called the desk 5-6 times late to complain about the loudness in the hallway. I never got an answer instead the phone rang and rang until it just stopped ringing. I had to get out of bed and ask the unsupervised kids.... All in purple shirts, to please quiet down. Which they did not. Overall I was not happy with my stay, my son had an early lacrosse game the next morning and my parents, who joined us on this trip were not impressed either.

Great staff and service. Attached to On Tap restaurant and if you are an IHG member they will give you at least one free drink token, doesn't sound like much, but free is free. Clean rooms and good cable selection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by garjan10 Anthony's wonderful attention to us!
A wonderful young man named Anthony was at the desk much of the time when we were there. He went above and beyond for us and had the most positive and helpful attitude! When our tv didn't work he upgraded us to a suite and brought us ice cream and water! He was very attentive and seemed to be genuinely pleased to help us. Thank you, Anthony! You helped make our stay there wonderful. We will definitely stay there the next time we are in that area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bearcwboy Here again
I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last few months. I will be back again soon for more work. The staff here is EXCELLENT and the rooms are great. The breakfast bar is nice, but as with all Holiday Inn Express the selection is typical and is less than stellar.
Its not this units fault, and some breakfast is better than none at all.
I would recommend this hotel overwhelmingly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dmc346 Shoddy management and upper management
A small service failure has become a an amplified failure because of the failure of both management levels to communicate.
Emails to the hotel manager have gone to this day ignored and unanswered.
Those emails were sent FedEx to the owner/president they have also been ignored and unanswered to this day.
The service failure involved here is the untimely manner of the servicing the room for a returning guest.
Because of the low grade attitude of the management that is still displayed I cannot recommend this property. I will avoid this hotel at all costs in my future travel to the Albany area, either business or pleasure.
I have contacted guest relations. They have responded.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe7355 comfortable hotel, clean rooms
Nice hotel, easy to find although a little pricey but is close to airport and captial so that is likely factor. Room and and hotel is clean and up to date. Bed was good, TV would only work short time as you tried to advance channels it would lock up, then you had to turn off and start again but would lock up again. Did request it be fixed on our way to dinner, it was not fixed upon our return. The breakfast buffet is average. The attached tavern/restaurant is handy if you dont want to travel to have a beverage, it does have many flat screen tv's for sports and news etc but acoustics are hard on your hearing. If you want good food, I would travel as what we had struggled to be average, it was dry, lacked flavor, and didnt really match menu, Arby's or Wendy's would be a better choice. Overall, it is a good hotel, in a safe area but value is perhaps in question.

This was my third visit to this hotel and it was everything that I have come to expect from this superior establishment. The value is excellent. The rooms are large and well set up. You can good a good night's sleep in many places. What sets this hotel apart is the staff. From the front desk through to the housekeeping staff, everyone works very hard to ensure that your stay is as pleasant as possible. The complimentary breakfast is a wonderful bonus. Nothing fancy, but a very nice way to start the day without hunger pangs. I will certainly stay here in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by techguy2 Front Desk Friendly
Knowing it was going to be a very busy sold out weekend I made a special request directly to the front desk staff (on my last checkout) to reserve me a room on the first floor a week in advance for my next check in. Upon my next check in I was told no rooms are available on that floor. I took the room assigned as I had just travelled 9 hours and didn't want to debate. I wish there was some way to guarantee in advance floor requested by a platinum club member. Front desk was friendly but unable to accommodate. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SharRoadWarrrior Excellent Customer Service!
This hotel is in a great location for easy highway access to both Albany as well as points north on the Thruway.
I am usually very tired when I finally get to my hotel for the evening, so I was thrilled to find that the hotel also had a restaurant "On Tap," attached and an easy stroll over to...they also gave me a token for a free beer or wine, so that made it extra appealing to me! The food was pretty good, although it is not a quiet place(but a good crowd!).
The rooms are impeccably clean and up-to-date. They have a nice gift shop/snack area too, which is always helpful when a later evening craving pops up!
The best part of my stay was the "at your service, customer service!"
Mike was a sweetheart..polite, knowledgeable, just an overall great young man. He helped me with an internet issue in my room and offered to come back up to work on it if I had any other issues.
The other front desk reps were also very polite and helpful, but most of my dealings were with Mike and I was just so impressed with him!
I know that I will use this HIE in the future when I travel in the Albany area and certainly recommend it to others.

This was our first time at the Latham Holiday Inn Express. The facility is well situated for access to many restaurants and stores. It was clean and comfortable and the staff members were very pleasant, professional and helpful. If in the area again, we definitely would stay here.

The only thing that I would like to see is a larger menu at the restaurant. or at least a little change. maybe a spaghetti night, regular prime rib.
The service at on tap is perfect. I have had about 6-9 meals there in the last 4 months and never had a bad dinner or bad service.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Deercutter Terrible stay, fire alarm went off
We checked into the Holiday Inn at 400 Louden Rd in Latham on 10/19, planning too stay until 10/26. Second day of stay, fire alarm went off. We went down the stairs to front lobby, then went outside with other guests. Management was attempting to deactivate the alarm. At no point did any member of the staff alert any guest or let us know what was going on. We checked out of that hotel and went to a competitor hotel. We could not have imagined if this was a real emergency!!! Very disappointed in the Holiday Inn. Will not be staying at this Holiday Inn again after this incident. It seems to us that they are not interested in their guest's health, safety, and welfare. The staff in this Holiday Inn definitely needs training in safety procedures.
