“A really nice find”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Booking a hotel in Saratoga Springs during the horse racing season is always a gamble. Supply and demand rules the day and many hotels are way overpriced just because they can get it. But, wow, were we delighted with our stay at Longfellows. The room was beautiful; spacious, comfortable, clean, large bathroom with jet tub, great airconditioning. The staff to a person were pleasant, engaging, and helpful with their knowledge about the area and how to get places. A hot breakfast buffet was included in the room price and a discount was given for eating/drinking at the restaurant and bar. We had very tasty dinners there, with really pleasant staff. We really had a great time and would recommend Longfellows highly.
The only reason it did not get five stars is location (although only 5 minutes from town center, parking can be difficult in track season); a pool would have been nice, as it was really hot in July; a covered walkway from hotel to restaurant would have helped us, as it was raining heavily one evening.

Just returned from staying at Longfellows. I was hesitant to try it because of the very mixed reviews here. This is where we will stay from now on when in this area. Yes, it's not in the center of town, but only five minutes away form it all. The grounds are spotless, in a lovely, more rural area. There are two buildings, one the restaurant with king suites, and the other the hotel. Both are unique, and very attractive. We stayed in a queen suite, which was ridiculously large, two rooms, with a closet the size of a small room. The bathroom was huge, with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Clean and comfortable. The price, the same as what I normally pay to stay at the Hampton in a regular room. We ate right there, the meal was fantastic. Nothing but positives here!

Our son and his family gave us a gift certificate for a romantic stay at Longfellows. He and his wife have stayed there often and thought we might enjoy it. My husband was turning 70 and we have a 48 year anniversary coming up in Sept so we figured we would take advantage of this opportunity while spending the summer in NY. I must say our experience was outstanding. From the warm welcome at the check in desk to our final goodbye the next morning, everyone made us feel special. Our suite was clean and comfortable with a welcome bottle of champagne and chocolates. Our dinner reservations were made for us and the meal was outstanding. We will be certainly be returning for another wonderful stay and highly recommend Longfellows.

I went here for the first time for a wedding and loved it! The food was excellent and well-maintained throughout the cocktail hour & reception. The service was flawless, with staff being on hand throughout the day for everything that was needed.

The main room where everything took place is very unique, giving a very open, outdoors look to an indoor wedding. Everything from the walls, balconies, pond, decorations, lighting, and seating arrangement all made for a wedding where it was hard to not have a good time. The central dance floor kept everyone up & dancing until the end.

I would definitely choose Longfellows for a formal event or a nice dinner in the future, as I got to enjoy one of the best weddings of my life here!

Longfellows is a great complex, they have a restaurant, banquet facility and of course the hotel. Everyone we encountered was very nice and the buildings and grounds were well kept.

But what it had in structure it lacked in some of the little things, such as towels and linens. Not a big deal, but you expect more.

We had a duplex room that was difficult to keep cool, because the bed is on a second floor. But they do have a ceiling fan on the second floor.

It is a little farther out of Saratoga, but cabs are easy to get.

I would recommend it to someone who wanted to have dinner in the restaurant and stay over night.

Beautiful setting, clean, comfortable room, exceptionally friendly staff and so much more. Longfellows is a jewel just outside of one of the best towns in America. We were welcomed with a cold bottle of champagne and a box of chocolates from the candy company that makes the famous peppermint pig. After a relaxing whirlpool bath we proceeded to the wine room for an incredible 3 course meal. More food than was necessary, but absolutely delicious. After a quiet, comfortable nights sleep we enjoyed a light breakfast before we had to depart. We have returned for dinner at least once since our night of romance and will be returning again and again. I can't recommend Longfellows strongly enough.

Room Tip: Opt for one of the loft rooms if you can, a nice change from your average hotel room.
