OK, I get it that Saratoga in August is going to be expensive, so when you try to get a room a couple of days in advance you might have to pay $270 (tax included) to get one. But in 2014 you expect to get more for the money. We got a return to the 1950's: no free breakfast, hair... More

The smell when we opened the door punched you in the face so hard that you actually fall backwards. Dirty moist carpet. We booked and payed for a parlor suite which they did not have open. They insisted on not refunding the difference between the rooms. The man at the disk actually said " complain to expedia my boss wont... More

After we booked the Grand Union with friends I read the reviews and definitely was apprehensive but what a surprise when we went to our room, it was very clean and very big! The staff was friendly and the pool was very nice. Some of our friends did get back rooms that were not as nice as ours and they... More

I stayed here with friends during racing season. I was in the Saratoga Room, right off from the lobby and we all agreed it was the nicest of the 3 rooms we booked. My room was a nice size, a walk-in closet with a good size fridge and a good size bathroom. It was pretty clean. Some cobwebs and dust.... More

Tell people not to come to this facility. Reminds me of Bates Motel!!!! Management has no idea how to run a previous well run business. It's a sham that a well know Motel has now I heritages a lack luster owner/manager.

Our room smelled bad, very bad. The "amenities" were pretty much non-existent. We slept in our clothes on top of the bedding and didn't bother to shower for fear of catching something. I think I would have preferred sleeping in my car. And who needs coffee when spending the night at the Bates Motel?!? Awful, awful, awful experience. Do yourself... More

The staff was a joke. The rooms smelled terrible. I pulled back the sheets and there was crumbs and hair right on top, the TV did not work. The only nice thing about this dump is the location. You are better of sleeping in your car.

This is absolutely the worst motel we ever stayed in. AKA the roach motel! The room smelled, the toilet wasn't working right, it made a loud noise when flushed. We were afraid to shower as the shower was dirty and there was no soap. There was supposed to be a light continual breakfast beginning at 7 am. The placed was... More

I've stayed in just about every hotel in Saratoga, this was a last choice due to me booking late and alumni weekend at Skimdore . Anyway greeted by a missing A in the "Grand" I should have known this was bad sign. Checking in I was given the 2nd to last room, dated old and smelly ... Best way to... More
