                • The staff were extremely friendly and the location was perfect, hotel room was clean and convenient, the reception was absolutely beautiful and the wedding director. The bed was comfortable and the restaurant was very good.

                  Uncomfortable pillows and the breakfast was very salty especially the sausage and the baked potatos.

                  The hotel has only been taken over by best western and the grounds.

                • The staff were very helpful and the foyer area was comfortable, our stay was very pleasant considering the reason we were there, for the price I was pretty much satisfied. The service at best western was impeccable, bathroom was clean and the bar had a surprisingly good selection of draft beers. Breakfast was great, pool was nice.

                  Poor hotel and no hot water. Very uncomfortable pillows, dry omelet.

                • Good area, quiet atmosphere and the house keeping staff were very pleasant. The price was reasonable, the front desk was very courteous and helpful, the bedroom was vey comfortable and had a fabulous king sized bed. Drinks were nice also.

                  Hotel room is old, the air conditioning is noisy.

                • Location bug free and this hotel managed to ruin my opinion of Best Western. The staff is nice, the price of the room is excellent.

                  Bad service and uncomfortable Beds. The bathtub was old and the menu in the resto/bar was a little limited.

                • Good location and hotel is clean. The staff is great.

                  The whole place was old and dingy, the food in the bar/restaurant was ok/ Bathroom could be updated, the sauna was very dirty and seemed like was never cleaned. The breakfast was powdered eggs, bitter coffee and overcrowded.

                • Location is great, of our stay is that its has a excellent breakfast and friendly staff / close to downtown. Rooms are neat and clean.

                  Really really loud hotel and not worth this price. All around poor service and tv old. Bar was a little limited, the mattress was not comfortable at all and pool was bad.

                • For being near the city and good value. As comfortable as home, great price and i liked that the staff were very friendly and open to answering your questions and catering to needs. The room was really big and breakfast was included and nothing fancy was perfectly fine.

                  Decor are a little dated and etc. The service there is also very poor. Air conditioning is not adequate.

                • Good location, stuff are friendly and Albany Best Western Sovereign has topnotch customer service. The rooms are comfortable.

                  The hotel is relatively old, bathroom could have been a little cleaner.
