Location was fantastic. Rooms were old but clean. Staff was very nice. Enjoyed my stay here very much. Loved the outdoor balcony, very enjoyable to sit out there on a nice night. Would defiantly choose this hotel again.

It does cap off a great day to sit on that balcony so be sure to ask for it next time! Clean is our thing---it has to be for me so I know every guest wants the same. Appreciate you saying so!

The Downtowner is conveniently located. It is perfect. Just park and go. The Downtowner is currently being renovated. The motel is very well kept. The staff is very friendly. Great stay for the price.

It was great parking our vehicle and walking along Broadway where most of the shops, pubs and restaurants are located. There are chairs in front for quality viewing and the staff was incredibly friendly. The price varies and the room was a little outdated but would return. We did not use the heated pool and there is a moderate continental...

Appreciate your comments. Yes we were built in 1963 and our new room decor is almost complete so come again to see us updated soon! We do our best to bring as much variety as we can to our breakfast bar since we are a true motel without a kitchen. Sitting on the balcony when the weather is fine makes...

All I can say is from check-in to check-out this was a great experience! Beautiful rooms right in the middle of the village so you can walk to anything and everything. Bill the owner was so welcoming and helped suggest great restaurants etc. Going back in a couple weeks and can't wait.

PROS: it was very cheap located right down town. The room was large & beds were average. The desk personnel were very friendly and nice. Room out dated but clean no complaints. CONS: I was not told that on site parking was extremely limited. I had to park behind hotel in a municipal parking garage. Continental breakfast was just ok.

Hi Terry, We work on the friendly and the clean while offering a reasonable rate. Especially for our stellar location! Our personal parking lot in front does not serve all of our guests. As with any downtown city lodging property, parking is usually dependent on ancillary lots. We are 'sandwiched' by our lot and the free municipal garage directly behind...

location is right on Broadway and cannot be beat! shower temp and water pressure a little sketchy. Price for the location cannot be touched! Also very good to have parking included in the rate as well. Front office staff very friendly and informative.

We came in late, Dan was the man! Very helpful, and great personality for the front desk. Thank you for giving us a great stay, we love this place and will be returning if ever in the area. Though being outdated, our room was very clean! The location is what makes this place a gem, walking distance to everything.

We have now stayed here three times, as a stopover between NY and Montreal... Always clean, friendly, great price for an overnight + light breakfast starting at 5 am before getting back on the road. Never used the pool, but it looks clean too.

We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere along with the very comfortable room, windows you can open, and good beds. The indoor pool is a real treat, too. Parking on-site is a great bonus, given that Saratoga Springs can get crowded with cars sometimes. So it is a perfect location from which to enjoy the city. Not a fancy place, but...

The staff was helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfortable and clean. You can't beat the location! My only complaint would be that our room had no ventilation or AC so it got very hot and stuffy. My friends and I had a great time and will be retuning!
