Good Value
Room very clean. Deadbolt works. I did not try TV. Staff friendly to me. I have stayed at a lot of hotels and Scottish Inn is a good value for the price range, which is low for the Colonie Mall/Target area, Albany, NY. Close to major bus stop for getting around rest of city, and airport-train-bus stations within an hour.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The place was nothing like described, it is basically a cheap road MOTEL and not a hotel. The room had a horrible smell, a combination of cigarettes and a strong spray trying to cover that. The shower was broken, the reception did sent someone to fix it but there wasn't a proper solution besides trying to open it again and hope it will work. The room was filthy, the carpet was full of dirt and the sheets on the bed were not clean. There were no blankets on the bed (only a sheet) and the guy in the reception argued with us over the phone when we asked for 2 blankets (we were two people who are not a couple so sharing a blanket was not really an option. The atmosphere itself was not welcoming and a bit scary. We ended up leaving for another hotel after only 30 min there. Highly not recommended!
