“Great Hotel in a Perfect Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

This Hotel is certainly an older hotel, but the rooms are bigger then most newer hotels. Yes, the hotel could use some updating but that does not effect your stay or the cleanliness of the rooms. The beds are not pillowtop but certainly for the price the beds are adequate for the amount of time you plan to sleep. The fantastic location and the great hospitality we always receive from Carolyn, you cannot beat this hotel. My husband and I stay here once a month or so when he has business in the area and are always pleased with our stay and the price. The indoor pool is a plus (very clean and just the right temperature dependant upon the time of the year. They also have a quick start type breakfast with coffee, juice, fruit, danish bagels etc...it's not fancy, but it does the trick to get you started on your day. Please understand this is not a Marriott or Hilton, but I don't know of a Marriott or Hilton that is smack dab in the middle of Broadway with a price point of under $100.00 on the 4th of July Holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for Carolyn when you call and she will help you to select a room based on your needs. If you wa...

Just stayed here for a couple of nights for a weekend of concerts at SPAC. Let me start off with the good: the location is fantastic. Literally right downtown plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Try to get a room facing broadway. Deck outside was a plus to get some sun and people watch. The people at the front and cleaning staff were very friendly except for one incident and on to the bad: when we got in from the first nights show the front desk person of the night (aka Dad waiting up past our curfew) greeted us with the following statement "now keep in mind everyone else at this hotel paid the same amount as you to stay here so keep it quiet" and a good evening to you too captain buzzkill. keep in mind we are not 18-22 years old we are 35+ with no signs of rowdy drunkenness. I'm sure they deal with this problem a lot but maybe if he picked his targets a little better. Also, the front desk should mention to guests how to work the shower because the button to turn the head on I'd well hidden. The beds are so uncomfortable. I'm pretty sure the mattresses weighed a pound and had more bounce than a trampoline. The ugly: we felt we needed to wear flip flops IN the room while walking ON the carpet. nuff said. I swam in the pool and I'm wondering if that was really a good idea. So like I said its all about location

I called at the last minute to find a room for my husband and me. Carolyn was very pleasant and gave me some options for different rooms. Even though it was the 4th of July holiday, we were able to have a very comfortable and affordable room for the evening of the 3rd. My son and daughter-in-law are looking forward to staying here as well for their anniversary in a week ! Great location, too !!

Green Features: They charge a $250 fee if you're caught smoking in your room. I like that; it keeps the smokers far away !!

WE stayed at this motel in June and the price was right , the rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly.. The continental breakfast was fresh and it had a nice variety. The central location of this motel is perfect for those who want the downtown experience. You walk out of your door and you are right in the middle of town.

I have been staying here many times. I can stay at any hotel in Saratoga but choose yours because of Carolyn. She always has a smile when I check in and that is great after a long road trip. She always has great information on places to eat or drink. I hope that Carolyn is always there she a great asset for the hotel. Is she is gone I will be too.

Room Tip: One on the deck facing the road

Carolyn. She always has a smile and that is great after a long trip. She always knows the best places to eat and have some drinks. When I call she can usually tell who I am. So I'm not just number but a person. I hope that she will always be there because she is a great asset to the hotel.

Theresa, Dan, Shawn, Sandy, Lori & Shelley sure went out of their way to make me feel very at home, very cared for. The Hotel was very clean, the food was excellent, and oh so friendly each and every one of them there that I encountered. Thank you so much and blessings. LindeeLou

p.s. I returned there one week later, as I was driving back home to Montreal. It was a great feeling. (2 great pools also)

Room Tip: stay away from elevators
