"1 night stay"
We stayed here because it was the only place that would allow a 1 nght stay during Saratoga meet. it is a real Spa so if htat is what you want this is it. Beautiful grounds that is practically in the state park and rignt next to a gold course. Plenty of runnig trails around too. I didnt check out many amenities beacuase i was there just for the horse track but everything looked nice and well kept.

"Visiting Saratoga racetrack"
Stayed here two years ago and decided to return. The hotel staff was outstanding! Ate at the restaurant for breakfast and lunch, it was excellent. Beautiful grounds and area. Shuttle available was convenient and timely. However, the hotel could use a facelift. The halls smell musty like an old basement.

"Wonderfully Quaint, but Needs some Clorox"
Pros: beautiful location and surrounds, historic, convenient............Cons: front desk staff rude and undertrained; room wasn't fully cleaned when checked in (arrival at 8 PM)- front desk didn't answer our calls (dialed down 3x and let it ring a while) for cleaning support, so we cleaned it ourselves and took the trash down, asking to have the cans to be returned and the guy who had checked us in 30 minutes earlier asked us if we had our "do not disturb sign" on our door, which would be why our room wasn't cleaned??? The gym was filthy; again, I went to front desk to ask for cleaning solution and the girl handed me the cleaning solution but looked at me like I was crazy (I warned her what could happen with MRSA, staph, etc, with such a dirty gym; she asked me if there weren't clean towels in there; I said that towels are fine, but without cleaning solution, you are just mushing around the germs); any way, I cleaned it as well...our shower knob fell off while we were showering, which we replaced, but the cobwebs between the radiator and the window were too bad for me to clean; we are not clean freaks, either. But paying a premium for a suite should be worth exceptional service and a clean room.

"Incredibly overpriced"
Don't get me wrong: this is a nice hotel, especially for Saratoga. But incredibly overpriced. I paid appx. $500/night during the height of the summer concert season and race track opening day. At this price, I expect top of the line everything, a la Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, etc. The Putnam is not even close to that level. No hotel pool. No stereo/iPod dock. Portable air conditioning unit, so you have a big, ugly hose in your room. So-so bedding. So-so toiletries. Cheap ironing board and iron. Half-mile walk to the spa. 2.5 miles to town.

Loved this place. If you're looking for a modern look, stay at a Holiday Inn. The Gideon has beautiful grounds and a great look inside. Smaller, older bathroom but very clean and great, fast service.

"Adequate"
Curbside appearance is very nice. This is an old building now used for a hotel. Lobby and first floor were very nice. The hotel grounds were also presentable. However, time has taken it's toll on the outside of the building and not kept up. The doors leading to the outside courtyard were sorely lacking a stripping and new paint. The flowers were primarily flowering weeds. The breakfast service was slow. Front desk staff were professionals. Rooms were clean but somewhat dark. Trolley to downtown was also a plus. Hotels.com price was $160 which was worth it for sure. Rack rate of $290 is a stretch.

Beautiful spot in saratoga but unfortunately not updated hotel-- surprised with this as it is considered one of the nicest hotels in the area. So old fashioned and needs to be renovated - does not justify the price.

"Beautiful Location - Not so service"
This hotel is in a beautiful location and is a lovely old facility that has been well-maintained. The service was only so-so - on a Friday evening when the weekend crowd was arriving, there was no valet, bell staff, or concierge. At the price of this hotel, I expected all three. The restaurant served my vegetable side lukewarm to cold (I've never had to send back roasted veggies before!). All together, I won't try this again.

"Charming Hotel"
We stayed in May 2014 and attended a show at SPAC. It was nice to be able to take a 5-10 minute walk to the concert from the hotel and then back. It was worthwhile not having to sit in traffic after the concert. The setting, within the State Park is beautiful. we did some mountain biking in the park and really enjoyed that. There is also a great golf course on the premises as well as tennis, hiking, biking, Pools, Spa, museums. The hotel is charming but it is the overall setting that completes the charm.

We stayed at the hotel over Memorial Day. The location was fantastic. We were there to see a concert and the hotel is walking distance to SPAC! The hotel has a shuttle if you want to go into downtown Sartoga. Our room was nice, but the shower drain was clogged so water backed up. That was annoying! Also, they must allow pets, because we were woke up to a dog barking in the room next to us.

Our experience was very nice. The TV in the room was a bit of a hassle but we informed the desk and, hopefully, they will correct it before the next guests arrived. It was very stately, there was a lot going on yet not much noise at all. We just wanted a quiet, romantic weekend away and it fit the bill perfectly

"not fabulous"
I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel, however, they put me in an average, out-dated room. I was hoping to be impressed, the hotel has tons of character and charm, but I was not blown away. Everything is on par with a 2 1/2 - 3 star hotel. I was hoping because of the price and the exclusivity that I would be blown away. I have had other people tell me they look forward to trips there, these people are obviously staying in a better room than me. The heating unit in the room was broken, all the knobs were broken off and jagged and I had to call the front desk and they had to send someone up. They were reactive to the issue, but I should have an updated unit in the room if the present one is busted. P.S. Do not be in a hurry for breakfast. It takes about an hour to sit in the restaurant and eat breakfast..

Booked via wifi from state rest stop an hour away, for overnight stay during snow storm.Quaint hotel with real New England feel. Off the main road, in a pine forest that's part of the Saratoga Springs State Park. Quiet, country setting, with walking trails through the park. Great value for price off-season in March. Very we'll maintained. Staff helpful, friendly. Drive to most restaurants, attractions, shopping.

"Winter stay"
The hotel interior was good. Issues I encountered involved how the grounds were maintained during the winter. The sidewalks at 9 AM had not been shoveled. The unplowed parking lot is quite a distance from the entrance door. Dragging my suitcase through the un-shoveled sidewalks was not something I expected. I would suggest adding valet service or additional grounds crews.

"Not a lot to offer in the winter"
This hotel in not one I'd stay at in the winter. The ONLY thing to do is go to the Roosevelt Spa, which offers no deals for guests and is over priced and outdated. We could have gone snow shoeing I guess, but it was freezing and icy. The hotel was empty and it felt like something out of the shining.

"Room at Gideon"
We were initially booked into a room that was supposed to be "Deluxe Queen", however, the room was definitely NOT "deluxe" and the bed was a miniature bed, decidedly not queen, and not even double. When I complained I was told this is their "queen" bed. The room was bland, unappealing, small, and had an unpleasant odor. After the first night in their "miniature queen" bed the new person at the desk the following day was much more responsive to my concerns and immediatelysuggested we change to a king bed. The room was larger, much brighter, cleaner, and the bed was actually a king.

"Historical place but pass on it and go to another"
We stayed for one overnight and were given a room next to the elevator which was terrible with noise throughout the night. Perhaps it was punishment for taking a pet friendly room. The heat was exceptionally high with no adjustment that worked. I would never stay in this hotel again and can not recommend it.

"hotel closest to Roosevelt Baths"
The Gideon Putnam is the only hotel in the State Park and is maybe a five minute walk to the Roosevelt Bath house. The grounds are spectacular. We were there in the winter and it was beautiful....can only imagine how beautiful it is every other time of the year. If you have never been to the Roosevelt Baths then do yourself a favor....GO! And for the experience to be the best...stay at the Gideon Putnam. It is close to Saratoga Springs and to the racetrack and you don't even have to leave the park during the summer to be entertained at the SPAC. The staff at the Gideon is wonderful...always helpful and courteous and there when you need them. Cannot say enough good about them. The rooms were clean and very comfortable (the bed usually tells a lot..and it was very comfortable). The Gideon is a very old hotel, but is well maintained and very elegant as you drive up. We will definitely be going back.

"Wedding Anniversary or Camping?"
We enjoyed being together, but we were told that we would have a queen sized bed. The bed was a full size bed, and when asked if we could change our room, the concierge said that they were small queens? Really? Also, the bathroom looks like they chose the cheapest material from home depot. The bath tub was extremely small. It definitely needs a make over. The hotel room looks like a run down one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn or Queens. The gym also needs renovation. The spa was nice, though, Very disappointed with hotel room, but enjoyed the spa.

"Not a Cookie Cutter Hotel"
This is an historic hotel. Do not expect Holiday Inn Express one-size fits all here. This is a quirky old place in a beautiful setting. Yes, the hotel is a little tired, and temperamental (as is the staff). But many of these unique places are quietly slipping away. Much like the fast food industry, people tend to gravitate toward what they know. This is a past we would like to keep. I hope others support it as we have done. I hope you can look past some of the perceived shortcomings to find a quiet well appointed room and a comfortable nights stay. There are two huge (yes, they're real) fireplaces in the lobby. Nice music, historical architecture, etc etc. Beautiful grounds and spa. Saratoga Springs is a great weekender.

I stayed here last week. Had heard this was the place to stay in Saratoga Springs. It is in a beautiful park which was great. Check in was easy, but then the disappointment started once out of the elevator. Stains on the hallway carpet. Then we got to our room, which was very oddly configured. I get it though, it's an old property. But there was spackle all over the walls that had not been painted over, and old furniture. The overall condition of the room felt more motel than hotel.

Gideon Putnam is a grand old hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the restaurant was excellent, but the rooms and some of the hotel furnishings feel a little run down. We really enjoyed the nearby spa which had wonderfully invigorating, bubbly mineral water and a great massage afterward. I'd recommend this hotel as a characterful place to stay in this interesting town. But I don't think I'd stay more than a night or two.
