I have no complaints about this Best Western. In fact, I think it was a great choice for staying right in Troy, NY. The online price on the website and through priceline were both higher than I wanted to pay. So I called the hotel to see if they had any special offers for just one night. When I told her we were here to visit the college, she mentioned that there was a special RPI rate. It was a few dollars less and I took advantage of the discount.
The room was average, very clean and comfortable. We had 2 queen beds which came with a pillow selection. The air conditioning and heat worked well. Everything worked and was well preserved. The room was equipped with a coffee maker, mini fridge and a hair dryer. Outside there was plenty of off street parking in their private lot. I felt safe throughout my stay here.
There is a BBQ restaurant just across the street which is where we chose to eat. It was good enough, but not exceptional. The Best Western offers a free hot breakfast in the morning which was above average. There was a good selection of both hot and cold items. The food was on par with a Comfort Inn and included oatmeal, scrambled eggs, yogurt, breads, muffins, boiled eggs, juices, coffee, tea, etc.
Overall this was a good value for the price I paid which was $116 a night.
