Had a delightful overnight stay at the Saratoga Downtowner. We were on our way to Montreal and needed an overnight rest. What a wonderful surprise - downtown Saratoga Springs, with a pleasant, clean and very welcoming small motel right in the center of town. The rates were very good (look for a coupon in the Welcome Center booklet). The motel... More

I booked a room at the Saratoga Downtowner for a weekend workshop from Friday, October 26 through Sunday, October 29 -- or so I thought. Hurricane Sandy had other plans! When my bus back to New York City was cancelled due to the approaching hurricane, I wound up staying at the Saratoga Downtowner until Thursday, November 1. They could not... More

Friendly staff, clean, perfect location, nice little continental breakfast, free parking. Older motel with a quaint indoor pool. Would stay again. A little noisy due to thin walls. Had a family feel. Great spot if visiting Skidmore College.

This was a repeat stay for us during our business event. The motel provides comfortable accommodations at an affordable price. We were greeted at the front desk by a friendly and helpful staff. Our room was clean, had comfy beds, very nice continental breakfast, and an excellent location in the heart of midtown, walking distance to our convention center, and... More

No one told us when we made reservations that the courtyard was covered with a big plastic tarp with puddles of stagant, dirty water over head and a leak that dripped into a bucket at the foot of the steps to the second floor and a new roof was going to be put in and construction was ongoing. We may... More

While I agree that the location of this hotel is great, the good news stops there. We stayed for one night on a fall foliage trip and thought Saratoga was quite charming, however there was constant noise in the motel and in our room. The motel is set up with a pool area in the center with poorly soundproofed rooms... More

This isn't the Taj Mahal but it has a better location than all other hotels in town since it's in the center of everything. It's clean, the beds are extremely comfortable, the price is right and the front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Saratoga starts early so, depending on the time of year, you may or may not want... More

Saratoga Springs, NY is one of the best walking cities I have explored. Its uniqueness is both authentic and traditional with a little bohemian and contemporary thrown into the mix. The Saratoga Downtowner Motel is located in the heart of all that’s happening in and around Saratoga. There is no flair here, just a basic place that is delightful, comfortable,... More

The location of this motel is in the heart of the picturesque thoroughbred hamlet saratoga.While the location couldn't be better(walk anywhere),but the raves stop there.The room was something you'd find ratstop roadside motel and litterally had an empty soda bottle standing at bathroom doorway and something repulsive left on shower floor.The lobby was tiny just like the room.The breakfast inadequate...

My wife and I were in town for 1 night. We were given a room that had a large commercial crane immediately outside the window, approx 6 feet from our bed. It began running and beeping loudly at 6 am - for 3 hours. Although management knew this had been going on, they never advised us when we checked in... More
