Great value. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. Beds are comfortable. We have stayed here several times and always are comfortable. Bonus: they allow pets. Nice central location in Troy close to the river. Restaurants close by.

Really good location. Great spot across the street at the Dinosaur Rib House. We attended baseball games at Joseph Bruno stadium. $1.50 bus ride to the games and $7.50 cab ride back to the hotel worked like a charm.

This hotel was in a very good location right in downtown Troy. A restaurant and park are right across the street, other restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is fairly basic, but clean and adequate. I would stay here again. The hotel is currently under construction in the back, but this did not affect us at all (we visited Friday... More

... to have more modern rooms. The remodel was not affecting guests in other parts of the hotel when I was there, but the construction will result in fewer parking spaces. Handicap parking is very well located. The room was clean, and the breakfast was acceptable for this class of hotel.

This hotel was very clean. We stayed in a king room. Nice accommodations, but it was small. Hard to get around a huge desk chair and bed. But all in all very nicely decorated and clean! It was very close in walking distance to a couple restaurants and bars which had very good food.

This hotel is in a wonderful location in downtown Troy. The rooms are nice and the hotel is very clean and well maintained. The breakfast is excellent. I was conducting a workshop and the hotel staff was extremely helpful and provided first class service.

As new RPI parents, we wanted to try a hotel in close proximity to the school. what a wonderful property - convenient, well-appointed, pleasant staff, and surprisingly quiet for its location. I will definitely stay again.

Nice hotel, great location within walking distances to many restaurants and stores in downtown Troy. Room was a bit on the small side but well furnished. Decent breakfast. The BBQ restaurant across the street is AWESOME!!

This is a very good hotel. While not as opulent as some it has great character and is well managed and maintained. It is always a pleasure to stay at the Best Western Franklin Square and is also quite convenient for me as my son is a doctoral candidate at RPI and lives about .25 miles from the hotel.
