My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Saratoga for one night. On the plus side it is located just a few blocks from the center of town, which has some nice shops, and picturesque Congress Park is across the street. However, you can't see the park grounds from the inn since a large brick motel blocks the view and the entrance to the park is a couple of blocks away. Another plus is the food in their dining room. We thought dinner was very good. Breakfast was typical - buffet style with pre-cooked food
The inn itself is not particularly attractive. It is not like the charming white clapboard colonial inns one see throughout New England. It is an ordinary wooden structure with a dark interior, a slightly threadbare appearance with no antiques and commonplace furnishings. A large three-story brick building, which contains the bulk of their rooms and where we stayed, has been added onto the back of the original inn and does not blend architecturally.
Our room was a typical motel-like room with no distinguishing features. There is no central air conditioning. All of the rooms have wall A/C units. Ours was very noisy and did not work properly. It stayed on all night but the room remained uncomfortably warm. Our bathroom, however, had a great high pressure shower head which so impressed us that we purchased one upon returning home.
We purchased a package deal, which included dinner, breakfast and a walking history tour. The tour was conducted by a very nice lady who took us through Congress park and some of the surrounding neighborhood to see some of the older homes while relating the history of Saratoga Springs and Congress Park. The cost for our package was $285.57.
Finally, I had reserved a suite but when we arrived no suites were available and we were put into one of their standard rooms. If you want just an ordinary place near downtown, the Inn at Saratoga is OK. Its best feature was the dinner we had in their dining room. The Gideon Putnam Hotel would have been a nicer choice but is not as convenient since they are located relatively far from downtown.
