The only two good things about this place was that the staff was very friendly and it was close to the Saratoga race track which is why we came here. All the other places close by were booked during the racing season, so we chose this place. Our room was pretty awful.....the beds were old and uncomfortable, the bathroom was... More

We were just looking for a clean, quiet place for the evening so we could head out early to a regatta in Saratoga Springs. This place was just fine. If you are looking for plush accommodations, this is not the place, but it served our purpose. The owner was very nice and accommodating, even though we arrived late. He was... More

Slept well, hot shower, cable TV. Good old school motel. Friendly owner, quiet neighbors, no-frills. You could spend more but what's the point? Sure, nothing is brand-new, But I'd rather not spend an arm and a leg just to travel well rested.

We had a room with two double beds that had old bedspreads and no blankets. No blanket in closet either. The place is very dated with an orange Formica counter in kitchenette area. Bathroom fixtures old but clean. Towels adequate and clean. Mattresses and boxspring were old and gross. Used my own blanket that we had in the car. The... More

This is something of a mixed review as I feel conflicted - the guy working here (Pete?) that checked us in was extremely helpful, friendly and informative (even though it was very late at night when we arrived), but the accommodation that we had definitely left something to be desired. We had booked a cabin which (it turned out) was... More

We planned a last minute trip to Saratoga and needed somewhere to stay. I was able to book the Locust Grove through Hotels.com for 1/4 of the price it would've cost to stay in downtown Saratoga. Not to mention it only took us about 6 minutes to get to Saratoga. The owner was on-site and allowed us to check in... More

This place is God awful. The good reviews written about this place must be from the owners or the employees. As soon as I walked in the door the stench hit me. I immediately left to get some candles to burn to combat the smell. The carpet is disgusting with stains and rips. The wall had holes in it, and... More

Just booked a weekend for the upcoming July 4th 2014. Stayed there last year and have no complaints. Clean rooms, good AC and nice sized kitchenette. There is a convenience store directly next to the motel, and a great diner directly across the street. The owner is very kind, and more than accomodating. Great place and is only 5-10 minute...

My friend and I stay there every year for 3 days on our Saratoga visit The place has improved over the last three years. New mattresses have greatly improved the rooms. The place is rustic and fits right in with the country atmosphere unlike the 'ritzy' overpriced places downtown There is a nice shack for morning breakfast with fresh fruit... More
