As you can tell from the title the location is the best part of this hotel. It is close to everything! The staff is friendly and overly accommodating. However they ask you a lot of questions at check in so that process is longer than it needed to be in my opinion. If you book in advance, over the phone,... More

Stayed for a night during racing season. This hotel is central to everything, all within walking distance of hotel. Great location with some on premise parking. Room was large with nice tv and good bed. Place was spotless, bath had plenty of hot water although older fixtures. Bars, restaurants, shopping never touch the car. 8$ cab ride to race track...

This place is a no frills motel, but I loved staying there. I found the retro accommodations charming, not disappointing. The best part of this motel is the location. It is in the middle of downtown - a stone's throw to great shops, restaurants and the darling park with the carousel. Keep an open mind, a good sense of humor... More

The Track?, Casino,or just get sloppy drunk in one of the drinking establishments and then...stumble back to the "downtowner"..yeah Man, that's living! don't drink too much though, the mattresses are rock hard and if...

I love this hotel - when I can get it. Definitely try to book ahead of time, obviously for summer, but don't be fooled: the Downtowner books up very quickly in the fall as it is an affordable place for guests visiting Saratoga for weddings/sporting events/Skidmore parents' weekend. Perfect home base for bar-hopping downtown. The hotel is SPOTLESS. It is... More

I stayed at the Downtowner overnight. There had been some good reviews, but it was one of the few Tripadvisor mistakes I've made. The room had two double beds with blankets that seemed to be old and disintegrating - At least that's what I hope was on the sheets. The room had a musty smell. The hotel is on the... More

Stayed for 3 nights and well worth the stay. Rooms were quite nice for the price and staff was very friendly and informative. Right across the street from the best coffee place in town. We were on second floor front balcony and had no problem with noise. Wasn't big selection for breakfast but hey you are right downtown. Will review... More

Do not be put off by the very 'average' exterior - this place is a little gem. Right in the heart of downtown (walkable!) Saratoga, with all its dining and shopping possibilities (not to mention the nearby attractions/museums), this small hotel/model will meet all your needs. Free parking, quite adequate breakfast, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms/amenities, and a heated pool. What... More

Location as others have said is unbeatable. Smack in the middle of the main drag. Downtown noise is the sacrifice. The staff is accommodating and friendly. Prices good as well. But, no way is this a four star hotel. Not even three. The rooms were outdated fifteen years ago. The bedspread was in dire need of retirement and unclean as... More

Me and my husband fell in love with the place the moment we saw it. Staff were very friendly. I believe I spoke to the owner Bill over the phone to make the last minute reservation and he was very accommodating and honest (he said that the roof was currently being done at that time so possible inconvenience may occur...
