6/10 Good

Cool Property with Some Considerations
Loved the kitchiness of the property. Would describe the rooms as dormitory chic, but all in a good way. We had everything we needed. Beds were very comfy and room was clean. We couldn’t change the water temperature in the shower. It was too hot. Maintenance came to fix it but the next morning it was the same problem. We could shower but the water was way hotter than it should be. Noise is a huge problem. The desk chairs are extremely noisy on the non-carpeted floor and neighboring rooms were moving them around at different times of the night. Would put felt pads on the chair legs. Doors slam too loud and people come in at all hours. The balcony feature is misleading because the balcony is just a walkway outside, with some chairs, that leads to all of the rooms. There is self serve coffee in the lounge area, none in the room. But the coffee bar is still a nice touch and there are books available to read. There should be security onsite overnight when there is no one at the front desk. A real plus is the location. Perfect location. Convenient to everything. There is also onsite parking but sometimes it’s full. There is other free parking right behind the lodge. So, to summarize, I would stay again but only if there is some attention to noise and some security detail.

Perfect location!
The location is perfect if you are planning to party. It is within walking distance of many bars, restaurants and shops. It does give off a clean, funky, prison vibe inside. As other reviews have said it is quite loud in the area. If you are looking for a good night's sleep in a quiet hotel this isn't the place for you. That being said, the bed was super comfortable! My only complaint was having to get out of the bed for checkout at 11am. A later checkout would be ideal when guests have been out drinking until 3am.

2/10 Poor

NOISY - you wont sleep.
From the photos, the hotel looks like a nice boutique-type hotel. Unfortunately, the renovations that they did don't live up to the esthetic the photos might suggest. Inclosing the space in between the two buildings that contain the hotel rooms creates a extremely loud chamber that amplifies the sound. Due to the poor acoustics, if anyone is in this common area, you will hear them as if they are in your room. When we stayed, there were people hanging out in the common area until 5am and you could hear every word they said. The hotel does not enforce quiet hours so we did not sleep at all. The interior common area of the hotel is also very reminiscent of the common area of a prison, "gen pop" if you will. We heard a few other guests making jokes about being in jail and needing to refill their commissary. The staff is super nice and friendly, but unfortunately that doesn't help with getting a restful night.

When we arrived, our room wasn’t ready (unclean) and so they upgraded us to a larger room for free. The beds are super comfortable and the location can’t be beat. The hotel is right in the middle of everything. The walls are a little thin and the bathroom is small, but it’s so super cute.

Nice stay in Saratoga
Stayed one night. Parking is very limited at hotel but big free parking garage behind was convenient. Very convenient to all things on Main St. Bed was SUPER comfortable. Nice hang out space on the first level. Only two things I would change is put the toilet paper where people can reach it without being double jointed and put coffee out earlier.
