My wife and I stayed in the Saratoga Downtowner Motel April 30-May 2, 2013. We had read the reviews based on cost and location while ignoring numerous reviews about noise and the homeless who loiter around this Motel. In terms of the noise, the management of the Motel make efforts by placing various signs on doors and walls that "noise" must be curtailed by 10pm. Of course, those signs appear on an 8x11 page in 12 point font. Most patrons seem to ignore these signs. Furthermore, patron's inconsideration and bad behavior are paramount in this Motel. The acoustics of the inner building echoes and also amplifies conversations across the motel. Folks weren't yelling, but normal conversations are amplified. In addition, doors slam shut rather than closing quietly. In my 60 years, this is the worst Motel that I have frequented.
