Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel was in a great location next to Proctor's Theater and the Jay St. pedestrian area. Very well maintained, clean, comfortable hotel and the staff were very welcoming and professional. Would definitely stay again if visiting the area.

Wonderful stay. I was in Schenectady for a show at Proctors. It was a super convenient location to the theatre and there are many places to eat within walking distance. The hotel was clean and quiet. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rates were reasonable and the breakfast in the morning was very good. The TV was not working in our room and maintenance came up within minutes and fixed the problem. I would absolutely stay here again.

I had not been through Schenectady, NY, since my college days on my way to visit a boyfriend at Rome Air Force Base. I was in Schenectady for a Conference held next door to the Hampton Inn at the Procter Theatre. You can't beat the location. The hotel is just a turn or two off the Interstate and right across the street from Jay Street, where it all goes down on Sunday's for "The Green Market" a delicious and folksy outdoor marketplace. But back to the Hampton Inn. I was greeted by Imani at the front desk for the most hassle-free check in ever. the next day I met Amir who greeted me with a smile and cordially helped me with my Room Key situation, that I always seem to create. The hotel is Clean, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. I am not a Hotel breakfast person, but the Hash Browns were on point and even the sausage pattie was tolerable. The breakfast Room Attendant Ms. Felicia kept everything wiped down and clean, no crumbs, no clutter. My vehicle was safe in the well-lit outdoor parking, and people from our conference enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. Two Thumbs up!

We recently had a wedding here with a suite booked (on a Friday) and needed an early check in for another room that was reserved on Saturday for wedding pictures. On Thursday I stopped by the hotel and let front desk know that we had a suite booked Friday/sat but needed a room sat by 1pm for pictures. I offered to buy extra room Friday night if that was easier but the front desk person made note and said come Saturday morning to remind them. 

At 8am Saturday I went downstairs and explained the situation to the new front desk lady who told to come back at 1pm and she'd see what she could do. At 1pm I was told to come back at 2 and at 2 she couldn't help me. I let her know that was ridiculous as we are bringing in a couple thousand dollars of business and all we asked for was 1 room ready an hour or two before check in. I asked her for her name for my review and when she refused to give it to me I went to take a picture of her. She yelled that was it was illegeal to do that (its not) and kicked me out of the hotel and called security/police 2 hours before my wedding and told me to immediately leave the establishment. I didn’t swear or yell and only expressed frustration that she didnt seem to care about helping someone. Again It was asking for one room to be ready two hours before normal check in, and the original person we spoke with said that should be fine.

This is turn threw off our wedding photographer as we had to switch rooms last minute and he was confused. So we missed out on a bunch of potential pictures because this one staff member was lazy and not interested in honoring a simple request. With maintenance staff there at 8am you'd think asking them to clean one room first wouldn't be a problem. I wasn’t expecting any special treatment and was fairly calm in my discussions with this employee who decided to escalate the situation.

With this person working Saturdays and our wedding on a Saturday I'd avoid this hotel as long as that employee is there. Unfortunately since I don't know her name i'd say avoid it all together. You'd think when Proctors hasn't had a show for a year, and capacity has been struggling for local hotels they'd do better to ensure couples giving them good business were taken care of.

In the past, if a location had a Hampton Inn, I would reserve a room pretty much "sight unseen." You were guaranteed a quality experience all the way around. The past few years I have felt this way - the hotels have been okay, no huge problems, but no better than the middle of the pack. This property was the same way. Checked-in just prior to dinner hour - the front desk staff was less than pleasant, and was not dressed professionally. The gal taking care of breakfast was barely visible and not at all pleasant or welcoming. I thought I was at a cheaper motel chain. The room itself was fine and clean enough. Hotel is centrally located in a nicer area of the city. Hotel dated though. The end of the hall door, more convenient to parking, was broken, which was a hassle. Will not return.

The hotel is located close to many restaurants, shops and theaters. You can walk to many places with no problem. When I checked in, staff did not seem very friendly and was not very helpful .This was the first time I had a $50. charge to the room on check-in. When I questioned this I was told that it was incase I broke or destroyed anything. She said it would com off the charge in 2-3 days after check out. The room was okay, but NOTHING like the Hampton Inn in Oneonta, NY. (Which was GREAT). No upgrades here, but we did get free water. Didn't see any cookies, when I asked they said 2 hours. When I went back, 'not yet, later'. Like I said it's just an average Joe.

We, a couple stayed one night this week in room 416. Hotel location is excellent. The town is depressed and quiet.
Hotel staff during check in and out were indifferent. They could not care less if you go or come. At check out, when I mentioned to the front desk clerk taht the room was filthy, he said 'Oh, I'm really sorry' without lifting his head.
The bathroom was discussing. The Bath mat was folded nicely on the tub but, when I lifted it I noticed it was wet, full of water. One of the towels was smelling from deodorant. When I turned the water on in the bath tub, a few black unidentified items were floating.
The packaged breakfast had a wrapped cold hard bagel, 2 pee4led hard boiled eggs and a small yogurt. It was smelly.
I'm not coming back to this hotel although I'm a Hilton Honor member.

Worst hotel stay. Ever. Walked into empty beer bottles, bugs in the lobby, wrong room rate. I specifically checked, several times, with the property amenities and NO ONE mentioned the pool “is broken”. We have twin 13 year old boys. No pool is a deal breaker. The whole reason I booked it was for the pool. There was no mention of it on any Hilton page. Nothing. They claim they “removed” it from their graphics and there’s a banner up. When I made the reservation = NOTHING. Called Hilton guest services, started a case and first night was to be compted. Even Hilton member services confirmed the property never mentioned the pool was broken. Went to check out and they did a bait and switch and only compted the first night at 50%. Unacceptable. Oh did I mention the filthy windows, mold in the bathroom and the trim falling off the walls? The pullout bed in the living room? My husband said a homeless person wouldn’t want to sleep in it. The parking lot is inadequate and you have to wait for other guests to leave, in order to park. Btw, in 35 years of travel - I have never asked for a Hilton stay to be compted. Stay far way from this property.

This was everything I've come to expect from a Hampton hotel. I had a spacious, clean room to start with. The hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. The hotel felt safe and everything in the room seemed to work. I'd stay here again if I'm in the area. There was no buffet breakfast available due to Covid, but I was able to check off items on a menu and the staff prepared my continental breakfast for the morning. I just picked it up on my way out.

Sorry, just saw this.... unfortunately, they do not take pets. I even called them directly. I've been frustrated that there aren't pet friendly Hilton Honors properties in that area. I was told that properties are usually independently owned and therefore set their own policies.
