I'd give a 3.5-4 if I could. Has all you need but that's about it. Noisy because of location but not their fault. Flip side is you can park & walk everywhere. If you are looking for a solid choice with hospitable hosts & don't need luxury this is perfect. We didn't need much more but extra pillows would've been...

We really liked the Saratoga Downtowner Motel. It wasn't fancy but it was clean, the staff was very friendly, the continental breakfast was excellent, and the location couldn't be beat. We will definitely stay there again!

This motel is located in the main street of the town with a price to reflect the upmarket image. We just over-nighted here, the room was comfortable and quite but lacked some basics, like poor tv and wi-fi and no in room coffee making facilities, which was available only near the front desk. The continental breakfast was reasonable BUT the...

We always appreciate reviews and it sounds like your expectations were not quite met. Being a unique independent hotel we do have some differences that were not 'built in' to our uniqueness such as the more traditional hotels. Some of the 'basics' are coming online as we have been currently updating our rooms. It is our style to have all...

The friendly staff, clean rooms and excellent location make this hotel in downtown Saratoga. It's easy to walk around to all the shops and restaurants from here and would be perfect during the horse racing season from the end of July - August !

You've got it right! Our guests during track season absolutely love being in the heart of it all while staying with us!! Thanks for your wonderful comments.

We stayed at the Downtowner while in town for a concert at SPAC. The location is great, the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and the hotel is unique. It's a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable. You can't beat the location, and the staff were some of the nicest I have encountered in all my hotel stays....

Just stayed here for the first time and will definitely go back! It's located right in the heart of downtown - we literally walked everywhere!

The room was nice, especially since there...

Thank you TazPrncess for your nice comments. And thanks for noting our sign was read about the upgrades. They are almost complete for this year!! A week or so and all will be done. New in-room irons, ironing boards, hairdryers, new lighting in bathrooms, new no VOC paint in bathrooms and rooms ('cause we like the healthier way!), new carpet...

It's a very good and cheap motel. The service is friendly, the rooms are clean, but minimal and not necessarily attractive, and the location is perfect for enjoying a weekend in Saratoga Springs. The only issue we experienced was that the pool closes at 8:30 PM and does not open until 10 AM, which rendered it essentially unusable for us...

Respectfully, we understand the pool hours meet the needs of the overall guest experience for everyone but not always those who wish to swim early or late. Our property is a 1960's vintage and, with the pool central to the guest rooms, we are cautious about noise. Glad you were happy with the rest of your experience with us.

We had never been to Saratoga and the location was perfect to enjoy the town. We were able to walk from the Downtowner and experience the really nice downtown area. The room was very clean and well cared for. The vintage motel is wonderful.

The Saratoga Downtowner is right in the heart of the city. It's an easy walk to restaurants, shops and pubs. The hotel is always neat and clean and the staff is outstanding. Rates are the best in town and a super value given the location. Rooms on the front of the hotel have a balcony and provide a great spot...

That balcony is a treat - isn't it! Like a fly on the wall, set back from the sidewalk, one gets to bask in the pleasantries while watching the world go by on Broadway!! Appreciate your review!

My daughters and I really enjoy the ease and location of the Downtowner! Beds were fresh and comfy . Staff was welcoming and friendly . Great continental coffee and breakfast too! Check in and check out were a breeze. Pool is shallow but great to refresh in after a drive in the car. Hope to be back soon! Thanks Again
