“Not worth the price”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

The hotel did not have a room that suited couples for the night we stayed. The price of the room should have been $100 lower. Its an average room, nothing special. The view is a parking lot. I would not stay there again. Not worth the price, at all.

Room Tip: If your a couple..call ahead to get a romantic room.

We tied a little, 3 day, romantic getaway in with a wedding we were attending at the Restaurant/Conference Center.
The wedding & reception went beautifully, the waitstaff was EXCEPTIONAL. Friendly, attentive and very accommodating.
The stay in the hotel was also wonderful. Granted, we were "off season" for Saratoga, however it was a very peaceful, romantic stay. EVERY staff member at Longfellows we encountered was friendly, and smiling, and genuine!
The room was well maintained, clean & comfortable.
Will definitely stay again.

This was my fourth stay at Longfellow's Hotel (in 3 years) and the place has never disappointed. The hotel is comfortable, clean and well managed by delightful, competent and friendly desk staff. The rooms are spacious, many have a jacuzzi along with a King Size bed (my recommendation!), refrigerator and the 24/7 availability of coffee and tea adds a nice touch. The morning dining room overlooks a lovely meadow and with a fresh snowfall is as beautiful as any winter post card.
Following an overnight snowfall of 4-5 inches, I was especially impressed (make that astonished!) that the staff went out and cleaned the snow off all the car windows in the parking lot, along with making a clean path to each car's driver-sdie door.. Never saw that anywhere before!
Can't go wrong here with comfort, friendly atmosphere and a caring staff! And the price is right, but book early if you're planning to visit during racing season!

Twice now, we have stayed in the king loft room. Everything about the place is amazing. From the room, the jacuzzi tub and the restaurant where the food is phenominal. We usually stay two nights to really enjoy it. The romance package is a great deal especially if you go from Sunday-Thursday.

Room Tip: We prefer king loft room since the bedroom is seperate from the sitting area. Plus it's quaint.

My fiance and I stay at Longfellows every chance we get. We always stay in a king loft room in the building where you check in (not the restaurant building) because the other building has a skylight right above the bed. Also, we always do the romance package. For $189 (on Sundays I think?) you get a 4 course meal in addition to a beautiful hotel room. That is amazing. Also, you get champagne and chocolates in your room when you arrive. The last time we stayed here we ordered the appetizers to our room for a mid-day snack before heading to our dinner reservation. That made it so we weren't absolutely stuffing ourselves at dinner. But if you do have left over food, the rooms have a fridge in them. The breakfast is meh but I love Special K and yogurt so it satisfies me. Also, we had massages here once and I wouldn't do it again. Totally forgettable. But for the romance package at the price, especially with their new loyalty club points system, there is no better value. We always have a WONDERFUL time and ask ourselves why we don't stay here more often.

We stayed at Longfellows on January 5th staying with a Romance Package. We stayed in a loft king suite which was one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. From Check in to Room Service, dinner and Check Out the staff was very friendly and courteous. The food and atmosphere in the restaurant is awesome!!!!!!. I would recommend Longfellows to anyone for dinner or a hotel stay. Love this Place!!!!!

We were fortunate enough to dine at Longfellows last evening as part of a Birthday party and we are so pleased to have discovered Longfellows. The atmosphere is wonderful, barn like with several nice warm crackling fireplaces. I had the lobster meat stuffed Haddock, that was fantastic! The service was excellent as well and certainly a good time was had by all. Their menu is diverse and extensive! Will certainly look forward to going to Longfellows again!
