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 The rooms were outdated fifteen years ago.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...

Room was well laid out and clean. Bed was comfortable and had a good nights sleep. The room came with a fridge, also a light breakfast was offered. This consisted of pastries, juice and... More
