“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

Situated in the heart of Saratoga Springs, it was an easy walk to the City Center and a multitude of businesses along the way. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient. If you need tiny shampoo bottles, don't stay here as this is an "old fashioned" approach to lodging. Frankly, I don't need to spend an extra $40 per night just to have tiny toiletries.

Yes, the location is convenient, but there are so many much nicer places to stay that are in the same price range, this place is a poor choice.

We've stayed here twice, both times for the town's New Year's Eve "First Night" celebration. While other chain hotels are available at the edge of town, The Downtowner sits smack on Broadway, a block from the very center of town. It's older -- from perhaps the Fifties or Sixties -- but has been well-maintained. Our double was spacious and clean. One mattress was great, the other a bit older. Fridge. Staff very friendly and helpful. We didn't use the indoor pool during our visit, so no info on that. The location is its best feature...roll out the door and you're right near restaurants, Congress Park, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the quieter rooms in the back. (Although the staff is very willing to make sure other...

The staff was amazing! The location in downtown Saratoga was perfect for traveling both up and down the I87 to visit family and friends. We will definitely be staying there again!!!

Nestled in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs , lies this jewel waiting to be discovered.
Convient to shops , restaurants and nightlife , you are sure to find all you need nearby, to make your stay a positive experiance. You won't find luxurious amenities here. This hotel, which was built in the sixties , is not pretentous , nor does it strive to be. What you'll find is value. A good nights' sleep , in a clean room , at an affordable price.
The enclosed pool in the courtyard , is a focal point which adds to the charm of this historic structure. ( The Downtowner sits on the former site of the Warden , which burned down in the fifties and hosted some of Saratogas' most elite.)
The staff is helpful and accommodating. One nice young lady , I believe her name is Carolyn , went the extra mile in ordering my dinner for me , when I was "under the weather"
during Saratogas' Restaurant Week.
It is service and value such as this , which will make the Saratoga Downtowner , my choice while staying in Saratoga Springs.
