This place was wonderful. I stayed a weekend and loved it. The location is unbeatable. The staff is amazing. This place is amazingly clean and housekeeping staff was great , always fresh towels and emptied trash cans. Surprise at how clean they can make such an old building look. Most furniture was outdated and no fancy flat screen tvs. Also what suprised to see the pretty faces of some of the housekeeping staff hidden in the rooms. Even talked to a very good looking housekeeper, seemed more knowledgeable about the area then the front desk. But non the less. I'll be back , very Nice suprise in this small city.

This is the best place I have ever stayed in Saratoga! I always check here first, however sometimes sold out. The staff is beyond helpful and the place is vintage and clean. Take me back to the basics with extreme cleanliness and PERFECT LOCATION <3

You can't beat the location and rate for this place. Right in the middle of Saratoga and you can walk to almost everything (cab ride to casino is $6, about 5 minute ride). The hotel is very clean, but dated. Nothing fancy about the rooms, bare bones. I thought it was cool that the indoor pool was in a "courtyard" of sorts and all the entrances to the rooms surround it. I had second thoughts about how cool it was when we were trying to sleep. Everyone echos and it is LOUD. They have "quiet time" signs all over the place (10pm), but it doesn't really help. The only time this place is quiet is from 4am - 7am. . .after the bars close and before everyone wakes up. I'd consider staying here again, but next time going to give serious consideration to staying someplace else.

This place is in a great location and may be fine for a stay during the summer Saratoga racing season, but stay away in the winter. I would have been more comfortable staying in a meat locker...at least I could prepare for that. The room was clean, and the location great but the room was freezing. I had the heat turned up to 85 degrees and it never got above 64. As I woke up this morning I could see daylight around the through wall AC unit. I complained to front desk kid and the result was a space heater that got my room to 64. Lord knows how cold it would have been without it.

We have stayed in many nice places in Saratoga over the years. The Downtowner is our favorite and not just for their GREAT RATES!!! Just like the name suggest it is located in the center of downtown within walking distance to EVERYTHING: shops, restaurants, entertainment, markets and groceries, the library, and beautiful Congress Park. Being a motel, the accommodations are somewhat simple and modest but here so warm and comfortable. The rooms are VERY clean and well proportioned with comfortable beds and mini fridges. All of the rooms are accessed through a pleasant indoor atrium/courtyard area where the pool and some tables and chairs are located. The last time we were there they were installing new skylights over the pool. I can't wait to see it. The rooms in the front of the motel also have balconies with chairs that look out onto Broadway. In the lobby, they offer a nice continental breakfast every morning with coffee, tea, juice, fruit, muffins, pastries, bagels etc. and you can purchase snacks and sodas from the front desk anytime. All of this is great but probably THE BEST thing The Downtowner has to offer is their staff. Everyone there is SOOO friendly and helpful. In every way they make you feel welcomed and at home. Carolyn IS so great and funny. We became fast friends. The last time I was in town I stayed with my Mom but we stopped by The Downtowner to say hello. Can't wait for our next visit!!! Love you Downtowner!!!

I love the Downtowner! It's clean, warm, quiet. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The beds are very comfortable. The location could not be more perfect. The price is right. AND, it has actual retro motel character. I have to go to Saratoga frequently, and from now on, I'll never stay anywhere else!
