the room was smaller than we expected. we had booked a room with 2 beds, but when we opened the door, the room had a queen bed and a pullout sofa for two guys. we picked the hotel due to its proximity to pleasure island. the last bus back dropped us at the wrong stop. the grill had basic food, but we were allowed to combine the caesars salad & buffalo chicken strips. the hotel was pressure washing the buildings and vehicles parked 30 feet away ended up getting white washed. & last but not least, the reservations operator assured us that 1 pm would be ok, but the desk staff would not deviate from the posted times..

Our family booked (with a DVC member) a Studio at Saratoga Springs for 5 nights in Nov. 2006. We brought our niece along with our two children.
We had stayed at the Board Walk Villas previously in a studio and toured Saratoga Springs at that time so we knew the size of the Studios. The studios are a good size for a family of 4 with young children that are willing to share the pull out sofa. I did not sleep on the sofa but my niece said it was comfortable. My youngest child slept in the pack and play crib. The room was very clean and the kitchenette (sink, small fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker) was stocked with glasses, paper plates and plastic utensils.
The bathrooms are average size with the sink outside of the main bathroom. There is a large closet and one wardrobe for your clothes.
The room is comfortable and well decorated. There is a pull-out sofa beside the Queen Bed (very comfortable) and a small table with two chairs.

The resort itself is very large. We stayed in the buildings just off from the main pool. I thought the main pool was a good size but I could see it seeming small for the size of the resort at a busier time of year. My children enjoyed the waterslide and child's small water slide. The interactive water play area was not a big draw with my kids as they found the water cold. We spent a fair amount of our time on the resort at the one of the children's play grounds near a quiet pool. We were normally the only people there except when someone dropped in to do guest laundry or wait at the bus stop that was also set up near this area. The quiet pool had spitting frog statues that were on the first day we were there and the kids loved them but they were not on the next day. On the third day that we went to this pool area I used the phone in the washroom area and asked the Disney staff if they could turn the frogs on, within five minutes the frogs were spitting water again.

We did not get a Disney meal plan but did eat at the Artist’s Palette once. It is a counter service restaurant and the food was very good. Just down from the main building are the boats to take you to Downtown Disney and there are all kinds of restaurant options there.

I only used the bus transportation once during our stay but had to wait a fair while for one to pick me up at Downtown Disney that was going to Saratoga Spring's and I did notice that the wait at the resort for buses seemed long as we would walk by people waiting on our way to and from the pool.
The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Our children enjoyed walking and running around and there was plenty of space to do that. We did not use the Spa or fitness centre. The children's program was terrific all of the kids (ages 10, 5 and 2) enjoyed it and we able to participate in something. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all areas of the resort. I would stay again.

I returned from a 4 day trip to Orlando last week where we stayed at the Saratoga Springs Hotel. It was beautiful. We stayed in a two bedroom villa. When you enter the villa, you immediately see the kitchen and living room. To the right is a room with 2 queen beds and a bathroom. To the left is a room with a king bed and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, a seperate shower, and a seperate little "room" with a toilet. Our villa was located in the Congess area. From there it was a 3 minute walk to Downtown Disney. Even though Downtown Disney is so close, there were still busses stopping out front taking guests to and from Downtown Disney. We never waited long for buses to any of the parks. We went one day to the quiet pool, which was closer to our villa. It wasn't crowded at all. Plenty of towels were available. The pool had a great view of Downtown Disney, too. i've stayed at many of the hotels on Disney property and this one is definitely one of my very favorites.

We were guests of friends at Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa and stayed in a 3 bedroom, fully equiped apartment. The rooms were large and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary equipment and we arranged for food to be delivered and put up which arrived shortly after room assignment. There were 4 bathroom in the apartment. The couch could have been made into another bed. There was a full dining room with large table. Televisions in every bedroom as well as the living room. A washer and dryer was also in the apartment. I noticed a laundry on the property for those units without in-home washers. There was only one glitch in receiving clean towels which the front desk handled promptly. The restaurants on location, The Artist's Pallette and The Turf Club served a very nice variety of food and the portions were generous and very tasty. The convenience of being able to walk to the close covered bus stop and hop on a bus to any of the Disney Parks was a true plus. The grounds were immaculate and the various swimming pools were well maintained. There is a golf course. The Spa services were excellent. I had an 80 minute massage which was greatly appreciated after traipsing through many Disney Parks. My entire stay was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend this property.

We started our WDW vacation off with 2 nights at All Star Movies (don't recommend), then went to Wilderness Lodge for 6 nights (love it!), then decided we just weren't ready to go home and went over to Saratoga Springs for one more night...which turned into 2 nights because we loved it so much! The grounds are beautiful and our one bedroom villa was immaculate. Other than a scuff or two on the wall, it was like we were the first guests to stay there. The villas are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are huge...toilet in one closet, large shower and vanity in another, a larger dressing vanity and garden tub in another. Just wonderful. We had a view of Downtown Disney, which was a 10 minute ferry ride or 20 minute walk away. My boys loved the main pool, which has a zero entry area, a couple of spas, a large waterslide, and a smaller one for the little kids. We spent our second day by the pool and ate our lunch (from Artist's Palate) poolside as well.

I highly recommend Saratoga Springs if you are looking for a home away from home experience!

We stayed here after being upgraded from the Pop Century hotel to an one bedroom suite. We go to Disney about every other year and now we can't think of staying anywhere else. This hotel was a short walk to downtown disney, which we walked to an couple of times. We found it very easy to get arount with disney transportation except one time. We were at Blizzard beach with our relatives and we left early to have more time at our hotel before leaving for dinner and we waited over an hour for an bus. Our relatives who were staying at Port Orleans left after us and only waited about an five minuetes. We were told this was because the hotel was newer and they didn't have as many buses yet. Other than that this hotel was great. The swimming pool was great and the kitchen worked out great because Disney doesn't have complimentary breakfast. We found this hotel very relaxing and the staff members very friendly. We loved how they greeted us with the saying welcome home. This was an memorable experience.
