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

I am local to Saratoga Springs, but got a room for my brothers bachelor party. I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but got the room anyway. I checked in around 7 PM and got room 30 - the 3 bed suite. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. The room was very clean,... More

The title says it all - the rooms at the Grand Union are small and outdated, however they are clean. The beds are comfortable and the showers are hot. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful as well. It's a cheaper hotel in Saratoga and a great place to stay if you're looking to save a bit of money. On... More

Firstly we arrived to a room that smelled so strongly of cigarettes I'm positive I've contracted lung cancer. It wasn't only the room air, but the sheets, pillows, rug and wallpaper. We asked the non-English speaking man at the front desk very kindly if we could switch rooms due to severe allergies. He then stated in broken English no rooms,... More

We have family in Saratoga and have traveled there for years at least once per month. We frequently stayed and stay at the Grand Union. Unfortunately, the present owners are running it in the ground and either don't know or don't care. We've watched it happening recently and hoped for a turn-around, but it won't happen with these people at... More
