Loved being able to walk out the door and have everything right there.
Yes it's only a 2 star motel, but the room was clean and comfortable, A/C worked well, and the staff was friendly.
Good price for Saratoga.

We have stayed here the last 3 years!
Location and some very wonderful people run this place. May not be the Ritz but the feel of it is classy. Great location and not a rip-off. Has a cool pool and not filled with children. It has character!

I stayed overnight to attend concert at SPAC. Room was in back on alley way on top floor to which we had to drag suitcases up a flight of stairs down a narrow walkway, absolutely no parking anywhere in motel parking lot. Thought we paid for two double beds, but found out we only got one for the price we paid . Bed was very uncomfortable. Somewhat pricey with no real special perks, other than WIFI. The advertising pictures were very deceiving as did the ad for the accommodations online making it look much nicer than it actually was. Continental breakfast was low budget. Some plus' were the hotel owners were very nice and helpful with information and the place was kept very clean.

What a great place to stay. Linda who checked us in was so helpful that we awarded her a tripadvisor pin! She made sure we always had a parking space in the front of the hotel as my husband is somewhat handicapped. Room 102 is perfect also with easy access right by the pool. It has two double beds which were very comfortable. The air-conditioner worked perfectly and masked any street noise. We also appreciated all the extra electrical outlets for our many electronics. The continental breakfast in the morning was certainly a nice touch. The coffee is very good. And yes there is a swimming pool right down the middle of the hotel. What fun. The cost for our stay was VERY reasonable considering the rates at the other name-brand hotels.Thank you to the entire staff for a wonderful stay. We will return.

Room Tip: Room 102 is easy access

The Downtowner is a small family run operation in the heart of Saratoga Springs. It is a mid-century nostalgic trip with modern conveniences. The room was clean and newly painted,the beds were comfortable and I loved the matching turquoise tub and toilet with the yellow tile. The owners are in the process of upgrading the rooms and public areas with new furnishings and bedding. Hopefully the ambience will remain the same but with better furnishings in the room. All the standard amenities are included : free in room WiFi, continental breakfast, indoor pool and FREE parking. On a return trip to SS, I will choose to stay here.

Room Tip: There is no elevator to the second floor rooms. If you have difficulty with stairs, request a first...

This retro motel in the heart of downtown Saratoga has a personable staff, making you feel welcome and offering suggestions for local points of interest. The location is perfect for walking downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Although we didn't get to use the indoor pool, it looked inviting. We haven't been to Saratoga before but plan to return and will once again book reservations at the Downtowner.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony looking out on the main drag, which we liked.

For what we needed it for this motel was perfect. Great location in the the middle of shopping, bars and restaurants. We were glad there was a lot to leave the car and breakfast was included. It's not a fancy place but if a clean bed and a bathroom is all you need this was a great place to stay!
