Fabulous B&B

4.6 on May 05, 2017

I enjoyed staying at Olde Judge very much. The mansion reminded me of my late grandparents' house, and Tina knew its history. The room was quiet at night, and breakfast was delicious each morning. Would highly recommend Olde Judge to others!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for taking the time to review, this is a very large house and lots of room for everyone. I like it when people get out of their rooms and enjoy the downstairs also, and like providing a economical stay for all. In my 17 years here I have met tons of wonderful people, and looking forward to many more, hope to see you again in the future.

Nice B and B

This is a little hidden gem in Troy NY. The house is very nicely decorated and very clean. The rooms are good size and have seating as well as beds. Tina makes sure you don't go hungry. The parking is safe and easy to access. A nice place to stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to Review. I try to make this everyone's home away from home, and as comfortable as possible, keeping things very accessible for them to use, while at a very reasonable rate. Most B&B's are operated by one person, who wears all the "hats" 7 days a week, we realize we aren't perfect, but sure try hard, so when people take time away from THEIR day to review, we sure appreciate it!

Delicious Breakfast

3.6 on November 21, 2013

While the city of Troy is not nice at all, Tina and her homemade delicious breakfast are really great!

Wonderful "hostess," amazing house.

This stay was enjoyable in every way. The house is fabulous and the room was comfortable. You can see that a lot of work (and money) has gone into restoring and updating this wonderful house. Tina was way above and beyond helpful, spent ages in pleasant conversation with us as she served us a tasty breakfast. Neighborhood looks a little run down in spots but gentrifying in others. The off-street parking was private and secure, and as an old lady of 64 I would not be the least bit scared to be in the area alone.

Charming B&B

4.4 on July 18, 2013

What a surprise to find a lovely B&B tucked away in this neighborhood. And with a fun story about its history too (you must ask to get the story...)

troy treasure!

Amazing value in an urban neighborhood. Beautiful architecture, charming interior and delightful management. The twin beds were comfie but squeeky, a minor concession. Bravo to Christina for creating a sweet haven in Troy!

Quick overnight stay

4.8 on March 04, 2013

As others mentioned... its a little off the path and the neighborhood looks suspecious. But this is a classic example of don't judge (no pun intended) a book by its cover. The accommodations were great and the environment was warm and friendly.

Super hostess

Tina is very friendly and helpful. Definitely stay here when in Troy

A charming oasis in Troy

5 on August 20, 2012

Our stay was perfect in every way. Dedicated parking, beautiful accommodations, modern conveniences, an abundance of books, games, and movies, and an expert innkeeper who is also a fine cook--all of these made our stay comfortable and memorable. We have found a new home away from home! Tari and Lori

Wonderful little fimd!

4.4 on August 04, 2012

This place is a little gem. Off the beaten path in Troy, but only minutes from Albany. Tina really makes your stay comfortable, pleasant and special. Only a couple of hours after my reservation, she sent us a personal email with all of the main attractions, dining, and sites to see. Rooms are nice and clean, but what really reels you in is the Mansion's historic charm, warm atmosphere and yummy breakfast tailored by visitor! If you are traveling through or need to spend a couple nights around Albany, this is a wonderful little adventure with a lot of soul.
