We had a one night stay at the Best Western due to a wedding we were attending. Our stay was very enjoyable. Our room was very clean, the staff was very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was tasty and had a good variety of breakfast foods

Had a fantastic stay at the Best Western Franklin Square while making a college visit to RPI. Extremely helpful staff and convenient location! Troy is developing quickly and I can definitely see my son going to college here and us visiting frequently.
