We only stayed over night when we came up to move our son into his dorm at UAlbany but we found the room and premises clean, the bed comfortable and the desk staff friendly and accommodating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steffan Give The Holiday Express a try - you'll be glad you did.
I found my hotel room very clean and well appointed.
I was initially not going to book my reservation because of the word " Express ". However, I was most pleasantly surprised and impressed with this hotel.
I would absolutely book a reservation for my next stay at this location or other locations.
Overall an excellent value and I highly recommend The Holiday Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jr12901 great hotel but not a fan of added room charge
excellent hotel and very comfortable stay but not happy to find that they placed a $20 per room charge on my credit card without telling me about it! checked the credit card bill against the room bill for a recent stay and found unauthorized charges - called the hotel and was told that it is a company policy to add the $20 in the event there were "incidentals" or additional charges for services that were determined after check out. All well and good I suppose if they had notified me in advance!!! Not a big fan of anyone taking money from my account without my express permission! Now, I'm waiting the 3-5 business days to get my money back.
If they choose to do this, it should be made apparent such as on the email confirmation they sent me, a notification upon check in, or in big bold letters on the bill they slipped under the door at checkout....if I was on a tight budget and they took money out of a debit card with little room for error, they could have set a disaster in motion!

We had a very comfortable stay at this location. Pillow options were a brilliant idea. My husband and I like two different types of pillows and to find both types available was quite the bonus. Room and bathroom were nicely updated. Breakfast choices were great, especially the cinnamon buns. Still thinking about those! Will definitely keep this hotel in mind if traveling through that way again.

Staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They gave us information on local public transportation and sights. We were impressed with the people at the front desk and in the dining room. We were in an unusual situation but they made our stay a real pleasure. Thank you all Marcella and BJ

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete33 Excellent Experience
My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights and we had an excellent experience. The room was very clean and everything worked as expected. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and well stocked each day with 4 large towels and 4 small ones plus plenty of shampoo and conditioner.
Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with all of the offerings: both cold (cereal, yogurt, bagels, etc) and hot (bacon and eggs) plus fruit and juice. The attendants kept everything well stocked and clean.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again !

Experience was very good, unfortunately other guest came in at 1am and were noisy but that is not the hotels fault. Wired internet was outstanding, great TV, and a breakfast that had many choices; loved the pancake maker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by merry66 A wonderful Hotel
The room is clean and comfortable.The staff and service is very nice.
The only thing that I did not like is the exhaust fan in the bathroom. At first I thought it didn't work and call the staff to check it, the staff said it did work. But actually, it couldn't work well.

The room was ok. A musty smell came from air conditioning unit. The bed was hard and the carpet didn't feel real clean. Bathroom was ok. The breakfast area was big but very crowded as the motel was full due to a wedding party & family staying there. They had to use the conferance room for overflow seating. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. There are other eating places available in the area and the hotel is close to the Northway (87).

Stayed @ hotel for a wedding in the local area. Could not have asked for better amenities and service. This is by far the best H. I. Express that I have ever stayed @, and I have stayed @ many in the North East area. I would happily stay there again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JT2013 Highly Recommend Albany Western Ave H.I. Express
Rooms were very quiet, really nicely appointed (best bathroom in this price range I've ever seen), extremely clean. Pool was warm and relaxing and workout room had everything we needed. Slept great and the complimentary breakfast was also one of the best we've ever had. Great selection, loved the fresh fruit! Staff was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working there. Very convenient to large mall just down the road and close to highway connections. Hope to stay there again in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by m23g Good stay
There were some hairs on the sheets, so I asked for fresh sheets and they quickly obliged. The staff was friendly and helpful. Other than that (and I'm crazy careful about the beds, I check them carefully at every hotel# the hotel seemed clean. The beds were comfortable, as they are at almost every HI Express that I've stayed at. Breakfast was good #we're not talking gourmet, but everything I tried was edible and the kids love the yogurt and pancakes)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick340 Great Service From Staff
I've been staying at this hotel since January this year. This is by my choice. The staff here is super, it starts at check in where you're ALWAYS greeted with a smile and a welcome and greeted by name. The hotel is well maintained and kept up. The breakfast bar is always set up and ready to go on time. The two girls that work the bar are super also, the younger girl, Kim is just fantastic, always a smile and good morning and always if you need anything just ask and when you leave a thank you and have a nice day. I would like to thank Ann Marie also, she makes these stays happen this way. Thank you IHG for all the great stays and the great staff you have at this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joan93 Great place!!!
Beautiful rooms.Very clean and the bathroom was superb.
Front desk was so helpful. We wanted to stay in and order pizza and they helped us with finding to-go menus. The maintenance department went so far as to put a cone in front of our motorcycle so other cars could see it parked and not try to pull into the spot.
I would definitly recomment this property again and again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Penny0714 Roadtrip stopover
We stayed here as a stopping point on a drive from Ohio to Maine so the hotel was our soul reason to visit Albany. We were hungry and exhausted when we arrived and were greeted warmly and checked in quickly. I requested, and was given, a great reference to a nearby restaurant. Our room was comfortable and quiet in spite of the fact that it was quite full. I was able to get in a swim before breakfast in the wonderful pool. Breakfast was good and there was ample seating. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nan4135 Great place to stay
I have been staying here for years. Two of my children have gone to SUNY Albany and it is the most convenient and comfortable place to stay. The staff is friendly and the free breakfast is great. The rooms are always large and roomy with refrigerator and microwaves. I have two more nights booked already!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan365 Favorite hotel in Albany
Our son goes to school in Albany, so we've been trying out the different hotels in the area. We have found our favorite and will be returning from here on out. The service was IMPECCABLE. The breakfast lady (Cathy) got information for our day trips and was so hospitable. On the last night, the Nick and Jafar at the desks noticed that we had some packages that may not make it safely onto the plane, so they provided bubble wrap and tape. They also made sure we had three bagged up breakfasts for us because we had to leave the hotel at 4am. One employee after another at the Holiday Inn Express made it an excellent stay. It was great, clean, and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buttafly Pleasant experience
I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in years and was surprised at how upscale and comfortable it was. The room looked and smelled refreshing and I found all the amenities in my room that I needed for my stay of 4 nights like an iron, ironing board and complimentary internet. My stay was also during a heat wave and the outdoor temperature was over 90 degrees the entire time. The air conditioner never failed!! The complimentary newspaper at my door every morning along with and a full breakfast helped make the stay a pleasant experience.
