This is a low-cost family-run motel in the middle of town; about a mile north of the track. The rooms are on the small side, but very clean and well maintained. The rooms have base-board heat and a separate window air-conditioning unit. Bed/s, dresser, a couple of chairs and flatscreen TV with cable. WiFi is free. Continental breakfast is included,... More

At first sight at the exterior of this motel, I though it looked like a great place to bring a hooker. The exterior is showing its age and the tacky awnings over the aging green metal balconies and stairs don't help. Our room was about as basic as you can get. Beds without headboards. Walls without pictures/ paintings. A window... More

This is kind of a quirky hotel. Go with an outside balcony room. This motel is in the center of the city. There were street performers when we were there. We could sit on the balcony and people watch. The other side of the room opened to the pool. The hotel is somewhat outdated which just added to the quirkiness.... More

The room was very clean and staff was helpful and friendly. The motel is conveniently located in the heart of Saratoga Springs. We had a room in the back side of the motel and found it extremely quiet. The cost of the room was a great value as compared to most of the other accommodations in the city. Also the... More

This very tired motel in Downtown Saratoga Springs is in serious need of a face lift. I booked this hotel on Hotels.com redeeming rewards to lower the nightly cost. Even at this reduced price I felt as though I paid too much. The location is all this motel has going for it - it is smack in the middle of... More

Very well located and right priced motel with indoor pool. Genuinely pet friendly and also offering a decent breakfast. Rooms have been renovated and are stylish and comfortable. I would have preferred a carpetless renovation (the future of most renovations), but the experience was a positive one. The town Saratoga is living one of its revivals, and is worth a... More

This is the cutest, most character filled motel you can stay at. Reasonably priced and across the street from restaurants and shopping. People watching and strolling up and down Broadway is the name of the game inSaratoga. After 2hrs we grabbed take out from the Compton Diner and ate in our room with door open to the balcony.

The folks that run this place are super kind and super accommodating. Just the nicest people. Its clean, it's been updated and it could not be in a better location. I go there every year for last weekend of track, and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.
