Saratoga Community Court Motel
Ranked #28 of 34 Hotels in Saratoga Springs
Reviewed 4 August 2016

We wanted to visit the racetrack and this was a close hotel. I guess that because it was August and the track was open, the rate was $215 per night. We wouldn't have paid $30 per night if we had known what we were in for. It looked like a hotel from the 50's that hasn't had anything done to it since then. They haven computer system so even though there were other rooms available when we arrived, we had to wait for the one that they had assigned to us because "they have everything written down and it would be too confusing to change it". We got a handwritten receipt.
The room smelled, there was mold all over the shower (we put one of their thin cheap towels on the shower floor in order to use it), there is no electrical outlet in the bathroom so we had to unplug the desktop fridge in order to dry our hair, we could feel every spring in the mattress (we were afraid to look under the sheets at the mattress). I am absolutely sure that the mattresses are at least 30 years old. The pillows were so flat that they were useless, we heard every step that the people above us took, there was thick dust on the blinds and most surfaces, etc. We actually laughed when we walked in the door because we were shocked that such a place would exist in a town like Saratoga.

Room Tip: Don't choose any room, they are all nasty.

All in all not a bad place to stay. Loved that it was walking distance to a lot of things. Also that the door to the room led right outside was a plus. Parking was a little cramped and breakfast was alright. The room had a funny smell to it but I'd definitely stay here again.

On the plus side, great location to downtown Saratoga Springs and Congress Park. Ed at the front desk was very pleasant to deal with and the housekeepers were very nice.
Development Needs: Very outdated plumbing and electrical. No bathroom outlet and the floor was cheap laminate. Cranky window air conditioner that was very loud. Dust behind the bed headboards has been there for months. Bathroom lock was stuck in the locked position so you could not close the door all the way. My wife fell and hurt herself off premises and we needed to get her home back in Ct. to be checked out. This motel charges all fees at check in. We booked two nights. We asked for a credit since we were leaving Sunday but all charges were "on the books" and could not be changed. Not a pleasant experience overall. Will never go there again. Would not even have this motel listed on any Travel site.

Room Tip: Second floor. You can hear everything above if you stay in a first floor room

Somewhat handy location. Staff friendly enough. Bedroom & bath unclean. Whole place had "tired" impression. So spare - not even
a clock radio and can't call between rooms. Would not return. Not worth the price.

Horrible. Once I walked into this room I instantly started to gag because it literally smells like the inside of a barn. The sink was falling off the walls. The smoke detector was broken. The beds were noisy. The blinds over the windows were all discolored and broken. The front desk staff are extremely creepy and rude. The stairs going to the second floor outside are loose and rotting. DO NOT COME TO THIS PLACE!!! I promise you will not wake up refreshed in the morning...you will wake up wanting to take a shower ... But you can't use their shower because ...suprise suprise...that's filthy as well.

By far the cheapest room in Saratoga for New Years Eve and now we know why!! Hours after checkout my girlfriend complained of itching and bumpy skin irritation. Got in to see the dermatologist on Monday following NYE and MITE BITES and Scabies on my girlfriend! This was the only place we have stayed besides home since summer!
Even gave the owner a chance to make things right and he who doesn't even reside in NY didn't want to hear it! He was defensive from the get go and had no condolence for ruining our New Years.
