My husband and I have stayed here a few times now. The rooms are very small, and outdated. But, they are clean. When we visit, we are out enjoying the beautiful town, so the esthetics of the room, are not that important. Location is great, until you want to sleep. If you can, avoid getting a room on the ground... More

Not our first stay at the Downtowner, but our first review on TA. We've been to Saratoga Springs many times over the years and have seen the other options for lodging, but we keep coming back to the Downtowner. We acknowledge the property is a motel and dated, but the ownership (it's a family affair) makes continuous upgrades and improvements.... More

Yes the location is ideal. But sadly the building is in disrepair and the kind service provided by the owner and her staff can't make up for the challenges they face in running a facility that saw it best days during the Reagan administration. It was a cold single digit degree night when we checked in. The thermostat in our... More

Let's start with the location, could not be in a better spot, everything is within walking distance. Next, the staff. I can tell you everyone wants to help, personable and professional. Everyone takes pride in making sure you enjoy your stay. To top everything off the room was very clean, the bed was perfect and I know this sounds silly... More

We have stayed at the Saratoga Downtowner multiple times when visiting the Saratoga Springs area. The motel is very dated, but clean. But the best part is it is centrally located. We park our car in the lot on a Friday and don't get back into it until Sunday. You can walk every where in the village from the motel.... More

My friend and I stayed for a couple nights this month. Honestly this hotel is dead center of downtown Saratoga Springs. So everything is within walking distance. Shopping, restaurants, cafes, movies.... everything is close. I didn't use my car the entire 2 days of of our stay. It's that centrally located. Now as other reviewers have said, the hotel is...

My main concern with a motel is cleanliness. The Downtowner more than met my expectations. I didn't mind that it's a little older. It's clean. The location is the best in town. It's very near all the restaurants and shops. You really don't need a car at all. We were visiting our daughter and grandson and were within walking distance... More

Room clean but badly needs updating. Carpets worn out. Stained. Door hinges badly rusted. Heated pool supposedly at 81 degrees. More like 71 Open 10... More

The staff were very accommodating. The room was like a nice Econo-Lodge, with better towels. The location is terrific-in the heart of the village. I chatted briefly with the owner. He tells me they will be doing some updating this winter. I would stay here again.
