"Spent a couple nights here to explore Saratoga State Park, visit natural springs, enjoy the Roosevelt Baths & Spa and dine in town. The hotel staff are super helpful and friendly, room was lovely and very clean. We took the shuttle into town and enjoyed a great meal at Forno Bistro. Afterward we walked to The Inn at Saratoga where they have live music at the bar. I am looking forward to staying here again."
