My husband and I stayed one night for a friends wedding and were very impressed. Easy access off of 787, quick check-in and we were up to our king bed room. Nice furnishings, very clean, wonderful linens. lot of pillows and thick, fluffy towels. There was a fridge, nice TV and robes to wear. The iron and board along with a hair dryer and extra blanket were in the closet. Being from Syracuse, we are very familiar with the Dinosaur BBQ right across the street. It is award winning. Speaking of food, my husband (the strength coach) thought the free breakfast buffet had just the right stuff for a healthy way to start the day. Our daughter attends RPI just up the hill and if we need a hotel room, this is where we will stay.

Room Tip: The rooms at either end of the north side of the hotel had better views but the south side faces the...

Just to clarify for "years ago travelers to Troy", this is not the old Best Western that was located right below Rensaleer. This hotel was an old hotel that was renovated into the Franklin Inn and just became a Best Western. You might remember it being across the street from the restaurant called Castaways, then Fresnos. The hotel is very pleasant and the restaurant across the street is a Dinosaur BBQ. The location of the hotel is perfect and you can also walk to the delightful Brown's Brew Pub and several other eateries on the water. We gathered eight friends together to meet for fun and the races at Saratoga. The price is right, the public rooms cheery, the rooms are just fine, excellent breakfast included and they even have a big guest laundry. Perfection would be if they had a pool!

Stayed there for two nights in the suite on first floor. Excellent staff, good buffet breakfast, hot food and waffles. Near a great restaurant called the Dinosaur Bar-B-Q Pit. We lost power on our last night, they had a hot buffet for guests across the street in their ballroom. Only strange thing is they allow dogs. Upon arrival we hada crying dog next to us, but the front desk called the owner and it was taken care of right away. Internet was fast, gym small, but nice equipment and excellent quality bedding. I would stay here again.

This hotel is located smack in the middle of the city, perfect for walking around. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Free continental breakfast was hot and plentiful in a large breakfast room with lots of tables. Our room was spotless and had everything we needed- super comfy beds and a great shower! I would recommend this hotel.
