Olde Judge Mansion
Ranked #2 of 2 Troy B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Beautiful Victorian mansion, laid back, owner operated, full breakfast, excellent rates. Will definitely stay there again on subsequent visits to area. Amenities include in-room TV/DVD, lots of videos available, books, etc. Breakfast made-to-order from extensive down-home menu. Large rooms with private baths in hallway, comfortable beds.

From the moment you park your vehicle in its specially designated parking spot in the large lot adjacent to the mansion, you know you've found a beautiful oasis in Troy. You walk past a garden of beautiful flowers to a big hello from the proprietor Tina, who shows you around and makes you feel so welcome. We stayed in the Ghula room, and the bed was comfy, the bath robes great to wear as you make your way to the very clean private bathroom down the hall. The parlor dining room downstairs is beautiful, with wooden ceilings, and having a delicious breakfast and meeting all sorts of other folks staying there was a treat. Snacks available 24/7. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.

Recently returned from a three night stay at the Old Judge Mansion. Overall a very good experience.

PROS: Tina is a great hostess, really looking out for our needs. The price is very reasonable. Private bath a plus (although down the hall). A variety of snacks available 24/7. Breakfast was good and filling, but could use more variety. Dedicated parking space in a good, private lot right next to house. Self check in was very convenient,

CONS: Neighborhood is 'in transition' and might make some nervous at first, though we never had any problems and got used to it.

Overall a good experience and very good value!

It is a unique victorian mansion everything set in original style but not cluttered. Clean and homelike, including home made breakfasts and snacks set out at all hours. Wonderful proprietor! Best value in Capital region

Finally committed to marking two off my "bucket list" -- Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs. Everything in Saratoga was $300-plus, as were cabins on Lake George. Started looking in Albany area and found Olde Judge in Troy. Saw price for the room we wanted was $75 and figured it HAD to be a dump. But then I started reading reviews on Trip Advisor and elsewhere and they were uniformly positive. Primary complaint most people had was the location, which is in a lower-income part of town. More on that later.

So we went for it. And we are so glad we did. The Gluha Room is decent-sized with a queen bed that must have a brand-new mattress. Majorly comfortable. The bathroom is down the hall, but it's private for us only. Big, great shower with incredible water pressure. So creature comforts just fine. But the best thing about the Olde Judge Mansion is Tina, the owner/proprietor. She is very warm and welcoming, and her cooked-to-order breakfasts are very tasty. Egg, bacon or sausage, oatmeal, pancakes (blueberry or plain), toast, coffee cake, orange juice, coffee.

And get this, if you pay cash the price drops. So we got the great room and two breakfasts easily worth $10 apiece for $70 a night. Crazy cheap. Plus Tina is a native of Troy and told us a lot about the history of the city -- and the mansion.

The B&B is in a lower-income part of town and there are plenty of folks strolling the streets. But we didn't feel in danger at all, and there's a nice convenience store across the street where we stocked up on stuff. We're urban dwellers ourselves, and the location was no big deal. Parking is easy, and well lit.

Thanks to Tina and her cool place, it was just pleasant all the way around, easily worth twice the price.

Just came back from a trip to the Mansion. My wife & I loved the house, even though there were stairs to walk. The 6" rise(inside) made the effort easy, even with my wife using a cane. Tina was gracious and very knowledgable about Troy history and makes mean blueberry pancakes! The house is friendly and clean with secure off street parking, though the neighborhood was a bit low income. Our room was spacious, though the bathroom was a bit small. The bed was comfortable and the outside noise level was better than most city B&Bs we've stayed at. The atmosphere was period for the most part, with family & historical photos throughout. We are planning on returning, and recommend This B&B to all who have good mobility and a lower cost friendly alternative to the overpriced hotels in the area around RPI. -M&E
