After over 20 years of travel to Saratoga, this is the best hotel for value and location that I have found. It is right in the middle of downtown, minutes walking to widely varied shopping, restaurants, music venues, and civic center events.
The rooms are arranged around the central courtyard and indoor pool; you don't have to hike through long corridors in your bathing suit. Only once in my several stays here, I did hear noise in my room from children in the pool, and that was during the day when most people are not in their rooms anyway. Street noise is not noticeable at all, since the building is set back from the street, behind the parking lot. Hotel parking is supplemented by a large municipal lot directly behind the hotel.
I find the rooms comfortable, but not fancy. When making your reservation, let them know if you want a room with refrigerator. As an eco-conscious traveler, I appreciate the hotel's support of "green" practice - you choose whether you want to reuse linens. Other things I like are the free internet, and the continental breakfast.
The current owners are exceptionally friendly and helpful, giving personal attention to visitors' requests and needs. Do make your reservation as early as possible, since the value and convenience here mean many repeat visitors, and weekends can fill up early, especially during special events.
