The room and breakfast were ok but the location of the hotel in downtown Troy is very noisy. It cost us $150. I have stayed at Marriott. Residence inn and Fairfield inn for about $100 and got had a better experience.

This motel was absolutely excellent for our hockey team to stay at. We were looked after very well and the staff achieved in ensuring every request was answered. We could not have found a better place to stay with our Pee Wee hockey team.

We (parents and two college-age kids) stayed here to drop off our son for his first semester at RPI. The rooms here are good, the rate competitive. Bonus is free breakfast with the room, and free parking. Very close to RPI, a five minute drive to our son's dorm. Staff very helpful introducing us to the hip, fun historic district...

Upgraded to a suite! Good Breakfast. Short walk to RPI. Love the town and great location to explore the farmer's market and downtown. The price is what you would expect for a hotel in this location. It is my go to hotel whenever I am in town.

I was shocked to learn that the room rate when reserving in a block of rooms for a wedding was $20 more than if I simply reserved online. When I questioned the staff about this, they did I would have to speak to a manager, but one was not available during the duration of my stay.

The hotel allows pets and there is a park across the street. I had room 101 which is next to an exit. That was very convenient for me with the dog. Some travelers felt the unlocked exit (6-10) was unsafe but I never felt unsafe. There's also a good BBQ restaurant nearby. I only stayed 1 night but looks like...
