while the motel is showing its age, it's a fine place to stay for awhile. Don and Sharon will take good care of you. The wifi is a nice surprise so you don't burn your cellphone data plan.

For the last 7 or 8 years we have been visiting Saratoga in the summer for concerts, and have stayed at Birches every chance we get. Don and Sharon are excellent hosts and give the place a comfortable, home-like feel. The grounds are very well kept and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Its not far from downtown Saratoga Spings and has a deli, CVS, and Dunkin Donuts across the street. In the one year we were unable to book a room there, we stayed at a chain hotel in the area and missed the friendly service and quiet location of Birches. Looking forward to future stays and many more swings out on the lawn!

If the room was $50 or less a night I would have been okay with what I was getting. But for $89 a night I felt totally ripped off.

Cons:The room had not been remodeled, dusted, or even thoroughly cleaned since 1979. Sometimes a dated decor can have a charm to it, but not this (fake wood panneling, old tiling, old carpeting)...the place did not feel too clean (old musty smell, lots of dust, cobwebs), we weren't able to get wifi, old crappy cheap furniture, only a double bed, and when I checked under the bed to make sure I did not leave anything I saw old candy wrappers under the bed and tons of dust...I almost started gagging.

Pros: free deli breakfast sandwiches for breakfast were super delicious; sheets, pillowcases, and even the blankets seemed clean; pillows and bed were super comfortable; towels were clean; the owner (Don) was very nice and hospitable.

It was a decent location in Saratoga, but to charge this much for a crappy motel room that's not even located downtown...

I would definitely not stay here again.

If youre heading to Saratoga, NY and are looking for a value motel just outside of town, this is the place for you. Its easy to get to from downtown or the horse track. The rooms are comfortable, but not very updated. The staff/owners are extremely helpful and friendly! We would absolutely go back on our next visit.

Reviewed 30 September 2010

Were very surprised at what we found when we walked into our room...especially since this was in the AAA guide. Bedspreads mismatched and faded, stains on carpeting and the bathroom sink, mirror, lighting and shower had to have been from the 1940's! (No exaggeration.)The mini blinds in the bathroom were disgustingly filthy. The bed sheets were clean and smelled good, the towels were plush and smelled good. There was free Wifi and cable TV, an a/c unit that worked well, as well as a mini fridge and microwave. For $82, though, that seemed steep for something that I just described, in my opinion.
