Inn at Saratoga is a delightful place to stay. The location on a wooded ravine with a stream is very restful, all rooms face that direction...with tiny, quaint balconies. The staff is warm and welcoming, the rooms have recently been renovated for added comfort. The location is superb, within walking distance of all the lovely restaurants in downtown Saratoga.

Escaped to the Inn at Saratoga after two days in San Francisco. What a gem of a place in the middle of seemingly nowhere! What a nice surprise to have a large, clean, very comfortable room overlooking the ravine. The king bed was so comfortable and we slept so well here in the country especially after two days of hiking... More

We'd love to welcome you back the next time you're in California! Take care, Jack Hickling, GM More

Wonderful place......great staff, old charm and beautiful rooms. Grew up in Saratoga, and came back for a fun trip. Comfy bed, good simple breakfast, wine reception at night (left our almost full bottle for them to serve up later...they were very appreciative)....close to anything bay area, with a wonderful setting....wonderful!!

It's always a lot of fun welcoming back a former Saratoga local, Robby, and we're so glad you think of our place as a "little slice of heaven!" I'm looking forward to sharing your praises with the rest of the team. Here's hoping it won't be long before we get to see you again! All the best, Jack Hickling, GM More

This is a wonderful little hotel snuggled in the adorable town of Saratoga. It backs up to the park and our room had a huge picture window overlooking the park, which provided lots of privacy - I said to my husband that I felt like we were in our own private den while we read the Sunday paper (daily papers...

We were in Saratoga for a wedding. The Inn is situated next to a park ,so the patio has the feel of being in the woods. The room was very large, comfortable, and with all the amenities needed. Breakfast was included. A nice touch was the wine and cheese available in the lobby each evening. We enjoyed a lovely relaxing... More

The Inn is a great choice. The facility is showing it's age a bit in the decor, but that is easily made up for by the excellent service and idyllic location.

I can't tell you how lovely it was to read your review! Being described as an "oasis" and a hidden "gem" is exactly the kind of feedback we've aimed for since opening up shop back in 1987. It was our pleasure to welcome you with that much-needed glass of wine, too -- we know how draining a day of travel... More

Nice old fashioned lovely inn. Location is right downtown and perfect for us because it was just one block away from the Plumed Horse. It is just a couple blocks away from a few different winetasting rooms as well. Staff was very nice. Sent us a bottle of champagne for our anniversary! The room was spacious with a nice comfy...

Had the privilege of staying at the Inn for a business trip. The place is so pretty, so quiet. The grounds/foliage are beautiful. The rooms are large, very clean. The bed was the most comfortable bed ever. The staff was fantastic. Would go back every chance i could.

Everything that is good has already been written on that hotel which is my getaway in Silicon Valley. I agree with all. Rooms are large and comfortable and the staff is very friendly.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary getaway. It's misleading that this is the only hotel/inn in Saratoga and has nothing to be compared to. There are several cities in this area that are within 5-10 minutes driving, and this place is nicer than anywhere I've stayed in the area. We stayed in a regular no-frills king room.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Not long after The Inn at Saratoga opened its doors, the renowned travel writer, Horace Sutton, declared it to be "one of the splendid small inns in the nation." We invite you to stay with us and learn why today his judgment is truer than ever.Exceptional features of The Inn at Saratoga are extensive. Private guest room balconies afford wonderful views and the sound of running water from a spring fed creek. No other hotel in Silicon Valley offers comparable views and such a pristine natural environment. Rooms are unusually large (400 sq. ft. and above vs. 300 sq. ft. or less at hotels in neighboring cities) with floor-to-ceiling French windows overlooking a creek, a park, and mountain scenery. All rooms include complimentary high-speed wireless internet access, two-line telephones, bathroom telephones, irons and ironing boards, refrigerators, honor bar beverages, delivery of complimentary daily newspaper, 47" HD flat screen televisions, iHome radios for recharging mobile phones and tablets, combo DVD-VCR players, and borrowing privileges from our movie library.Room service is available and complimentary continental breakfast includes a variety of fruits, cereals, juices, bagels, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, coffee, decaf, tea, and several types of fruit juices. Complimentary wine, tea, and appetizers are served each afternoon.The Inn is located in the heart of historic Saratoga Village near more than 20 restaurants, some only 50 yards away. The Inn is the closest hotel to the Mountain Winery Concert series, Villa Montalvo, Hakone Gardens, wine tasting, hiking, and horseback riding. Silicon Valley companies are as close as 5 to 20 minutes away in the cities of Los Gatos, Cupertino, Campbell, and San Jose.The Inn is a smoke-free establishment. ... more   less
