You can't beat the stumbling distance from downtown. Staff were very friendly, room was clean & comfortable. I even appreciate that they yelled at me when I got back drunk & was talking too loud... Means everyone gets a good sleep. Besides the 2 night minimum in the summer, there's no reason to stay anywhere else...

After a night's sleep on our room's mattress, I felt more tired than I felt the night before after a long day. The mattress was the hardest slab I've ever slept on.

I have pain in my knees, and we were given a second floor room as we were advised there were none on the first floor. It was painful walking up the stairs with luggage. Frankly, there were steps everywhhere

The bathroom lavatory's faucet is one which I found painful to operate due to nerve damage to my hands. It was the pull-out type to allow water to flow, and then turn right or left to change the water's temperature.

Room Tip: There are none! Don't stay here!

Absolutely love the Downtowner located right on Broadway in the middle of Saratoga Springs. You can walk anywhere and there is free parking on site. The people that run the place and those that work there are so nice and helpful. The rooms are dated, but very clean. We asked for a fridge in our room and they delivered it right away. They have a nice indoor pool but we forgot our suits - we'll bring them next time. Each morning they provide coffee, tea and continental breakfast items in the lobby. They also can suggest local places to eat and if you want to order in they have menus to provide as well. Oh and they are dog friendly! Already am looking forward to our next trip to Saratoga and staying at the Downtowner.

Room Tip: We requested to stay on the Broadway side and the balcony just for convenience of coming in and out...

We loved this place because of its location. Location is incredible. Right off Broadway in the middle of shopping and restaurants. A couple of blocks walk to Congress Park and the Visitor's Center. Short drive to anywhere else. If you end up parking in the parking garage behind the motel (free), there is a short cut through the back of the motel -- no problem.

Motel bathrooms are dated and beds could be a tad more comfortable, but it's clean, everything worked and the staff are friendly. They even helped us out with several bags when we were leaving (we are seniors). Continental breakfast set up in the lobby each morning -- chairs and tables around the pool to eat. Just enough to get you started. Would definitely stop here again.

Room Tip: Interior rooms look out on the pool -- fine. Exterior rooms in front look out on Broadway, may be n...

Very hard beds, they felt like sleeping on just the box spring. Trouble flushing the toilet, shower started out hot and then became cold. If you book hear ask for a room in the back of the hotel, rooms on the main street can be noisy. Decor needs to be updated, could, bathrooms could stand to be updated, vents in the bathroom would be good.

We stayed at this hotel for a show at SPAC. Centrally located, there are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The rooms are clean. They still use keys, so that gives you an idea of the age of some of the amenities, but everything is well kept. There is a pool in an atrium in the middle of the hotel. This would be a fun spot for a group getaway. Breakfast was typical hotel fare, and served in the lobby, the coffee was the only thing we partook in and that was good. We had breakfast at a diner called The Triangle.

Everything from start to finish was impeccable. The reservation process was simple, the check, top notch. Breakfast was delicious. The service here is what you would expect from a REAL concierge hotel. By far this hotel will give you the true Saratoga experience.
