We stayed two nights for the Saratoga Beer Week. We booked 2 weeks before arrival & got a great rate through the Beer Week promotions. The hotel is super dated but really well maintained (except for it being dated) and surprisingly clean for being so dated! I've been in much nicer hotels before that were not as clean as the downtowner. The pool was in the middle of the motel & all of the rooms look onto it. It was really cool! We missed out going swimming as we wanted to go at 11pm when it was closed. I imagine their insurance only allows them to open the pool certain hours? Anyway, didn't get to do swimming, but oh well. The staff was super nice & funny and laid back & helpful. We had everything we needed and the staff was very efficient on making sure we had what we needed. The place does have thin walls, and you can hear all of the drunken shenanigans going on out on the street, because it's right downtown which we loved. We didn't mind the loudness, as we were there for Beer Week, so that's cool. Both nights we stayed, there were really loud, drunk people in the halls & rooms into the wee hours of the night, but again, we were there for Beer Week, so it's ok. There doesn't seem to be a dull moment at the Downtowner, and the staff seems good at handling the drunken shenanigans when need be. I'm sure they are used to it as it is a partying town. There was one night that there was 3 scantly clad girls walking outside on the side walk & cops came up and something happened, and then the cop ran inside to the hotel and ran up the stairs. We don't know what happened, but it was funny. There were also other funny random incidences that made it fun. Yes, we would go back, but not with young kids during Beer Week.
