The staff is very friendly and we were very comfortable. They were even nice enough to suggest better restaurants than the ones we had been to. Decent shower. Water nice and hot. Great location. Right in the middle of the downtown area of Saratoga Springs.

this is an old-school motel that delivers: excellent location, free parking, knowledgeable & helpful staff, very quiet rooms, new beds & super-clean facility at the best price in town! I'd stay there again.

The Downtowner is just that right in the heart of Saratoga Springs. You can walk to the restaurants and boutiques along Broadway. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Our room that slept four (a cot also was in the room) was small and basic. The bathroom fixtures were neat but old and there is little space for clothing storage.... More

Can't beat this location. Wonderful staff, adequate breakfast, clean rooms. We had a wonderful time at the track and touring the area. We had dinner one evening just steps away from the hotel. We were able to enjoy the ambience of the town 24 hours due to the convenience and proximity of The Downtowner. I would recommend this hotel to... More

In the center of town--walk to restaurants & shops. Minutes from track. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Not fancy but had all the amenities we needed.

We are glad that we met your expectations in almost every way. Do know that we are quite accommodating and, if we have put breakfast away, you can always ask the staff --- within reasonable time of breakfast --- that you would like a bite to eat. We don't mind making sure our guests needs are met. Coffee, tea and... More

First off, sorry if this is a duplicate. I had some issues trying to send the first time. We have been going to Saratoga to enjoy the races for 6yrs now. 5 of those 6yrs we've stayed at the Downtowner. We always find the rooms comfortable and impeccably clean. Although this year we were surprised to see our room (325,... More

We stayed here as one of three hotels used for a recent family reunion. I think those of us who stayed in the Downtowner got the best deal. The prices were reasonable (pre-race season, of course), the rooms were nice, and everyone wanted to come over to use the pool here. Room price includes a continental breakfast.

How wonderful you all enjoyed so much! I have always thought it would be great to have an entire group book the Downtowner for a family reunion. Imagine having everyone staying at the Downtowner be a part of the same group in our setting. What a treat. Consider it next time! Thanks for your nice review. More
