“Always Clean & Comfortable & Friendly”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Each year my family heads to Saratoga Springs at least twice, and star at the Springs Motel. The staff remembers us, which is a nice feelign of welcome. The rooms are your standard mid-century motel layout, but equipped with modern day amenities and always clean. The outside seating for each room is an added benefit, allowing everyone to enjoy the airy outdoors as well.

This is our 3rd stay at the Springs Motel. We had fantastic time. The hotel is so well kept and the owners and staff are very friendly. They make it their mission to ensure you are comfortable and do everything in their power to make your stay the best possible.

The rooms are good size and very clean. All bedding, including blankets and bedspreads, is washed between guests. We have never stayed at a hotel that's done that. The outdoor pool and pool area are a great feature and very nice.

The location is great. Only a short distance to downtown Saratoga, The Race Track and the Racino.

Looking forward to staying again next year!

As others say what makes this a good choice is that it clean and well kept and the owners/ managers are friendly and always on the ball.
The pool is a plus in the summer and there are lots of options in walking distance from Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds to a great, somewhat fancy Italian restaurant a block away. Walking into town is fairly easy.
This is a no frills motel, nothing fancy.

The Springs Motel is a lovely motel: clean, bright, well taken care of, right in the middle of town within walking distance of excellent restaurants (we ate at Limoncello Ristorante (great dinner) and Uncommon Grounds (great breakfast)). The management is always available and very helpful. They have a pool (we didn't have time) and free internet wifi (we used it constantly).

The big BUT is that we arrived two days into the July/August horse racing season (Saratoga Race Course) and during the racing season, the rates at the motel go up from around $70 a night to $240 a night. Same room. I knew this, and we were constrained to be there during those inflated rates because my daughter and I were on a college tour, visiting Skidmore College on our way back to New York from visiting other colleges in the Midwest. To be fair, all the other hotels and motels in the area raise their rates during racing season, and by comparison, The Springs Motel was still the best deal in town. And, when the manager found out we were visiting Skidmore College, she gave us a Skidmore discount, bringing our price down to $209.

So, I strongly recommend The Springs Motel, but suggest you find a time to be there that does not coincide with the ponies.

Cute and clean no frills motel. Nothing bad to say about it. There was a refridgerator, hair dryer, tv. not too much more. Too cold out for the pool. Price was good. I was just staying overnight on the way to Lake Placid. Close to everything downtown. Good place to stay, cause I have stayed in other basic motels there and this motel was very nice compared to another close by.

My wife and I stayed with friends at The Springs during a weekend in June. The staff was very friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable. The Springs is an easy walk to downtown Saratoga where you can check out all the neat shops and restaurants. It's nice not to have to worry about parking. We'd recommend The Springs whole heartedly, and plan to go back. Be sure to ask the owner about their new puppy, Sammy.
