For sure this hotel is on the spot if you want to discover Saratoga. Right on a busy street full of restaurants. However that's the only advantage this hotel has to offer. Rooms are small with an 80's look. The bed is only there for decoration purposes. It's very hard to sleep with the outside noises, window lights and tough... More

Plastic under sheets may keep the beds clean but is kind of freak. Fresh stuff for breakfast but only carbs. Noisy people next to our room (laughing women). People of front desk were friendly. One thing... More

We stayed for 1 night during racing season and loved it. The front desk was great. Great restaurant recommendations. We will go back!

If you want the true (and frankly best) Saratoga experience this is the place to be. The location is amazing as it sits right in the heart of Broadway - walking distance to all of the great restaurants, shopping, Congress Park, and even the track. My family and I have been coming to Saratoga for the past 15 summers and... More

This is an older motel but very clean. The staff was extremely friendly as it is a family owned establishment. I enjoyed the pool--it was perfect for swimming laps!

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately, major renovations do not happen overnight. Until the pieces are in place to make them happen, we are very proud to offer clean rooms, a great location, and friendly staff. Improvements are always ongoing. Since your stay just four months ago, some rooms have received new paint and carpet; and our parking lot was... More

Convenient location.-Friendly staff.- But motel needs a total update and a thorough cleaning would certainly would be helpful. FYI stay away from rooms 115 and 116 over looking the smelly dumpsters and dirty parking lot. These rooms are very SMALL,DARK uncomfortable rooms. Due to the upcharge during the race season we wear charged 190.00 with tax for these disgusting rooms.... More

My family stayed here for a couple nights and had never been to Saratoga before. Neither Mary Kaye, owner, or her staff could have been any friendlier or more welcoming. She spent so much time with us giving us a history lesson of the area, recommended places to go and where to eat, and was very helpful to us and... More
