The Downtowner is a great place to be if you care for good conversations, very friendly staff and just overwhelmingly welcoming owners, that are not (only) in the business for the money but for the people they meet. We stayed for three nights and especially enjoyed talking to the owners, but also the comfy bed, the small pool and the... More

This place is okay for an overnight stay. Prices are reasonable for the area and the location is great. Rooms could use updating, free breakfast but a small selection. Small inside swimming pool. Parking is tight and the overflow parking is in a municipal lot after hrs only. No hair dryers in the rooms. Have to ask for them. Staff... More

We checked a number of our favorite hotels, only to find the prices higher than we like. Then discovered the Saratoga Downtowner, but thought it might be a mess? NO, to our surprise it was a great bargain and completely met our needs. The location is in the midst of the downtown. We sat on the deck outside our room,... More

I have stayed at the Saratoga Downtowner numerous times. The location is wonderful, the actual epicenter of Saratoga Springs’ vibrant business district, with convenient parking and in easy walking distance to the best restaurants. The cheerful staff and indoor atrium make my stays there a real pleasure. TomTomBill

The central location of the hotel provided us with the opportunity to walk to most interesting locations and restaurants in town. The friendly staff was very helpful with any questions we had. We will return again.

We loved the Downtowner! The location and value were what brought us there. The friendly, accommodating staff, ease of unloading and getting to the room, and uniqueness of this motel, will bring us back! We liked the little central pool and thoughts of the retractable roof in summer! We had tea and coffee anytime we wanted, and late checkout which... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Downtowner Motel and found it to be perfect for our needs. We were in Saratoga on St. Patrick's Day weekend to see a show and found the motel to be very accommodating and clean and the location was great! Right in the middle of downtown shopping and restaurants steps away. The... More

The location of this hotel is excellent for visiting the town, being right along a main road. Parking was full so I had to grab a spot in the municipal garage behind the hotel which worked out fine. The staff I interacted with directly were good. Now the bad - the room was old and rundown with lots of water... More

We booked this hotel for a youth conference. The rooms were nice and clean, the pool and the rest of the hotel as well. The best part, however was the staff! Sooo nice and accommodating!
