We are located  approximately 3 miles from Saratoga Racetrack and the Saratoga Performing Art Center (SPAC), and 2 miles from Saratoga City Center.  Skidmore College is also nearby.

Local taxis are available for transportation , and there are a number of take-out eateries and restaurants that deliver.  Just across the highway is ” The Kettle,” a local diner that serves a great breakfast and lunch menu.

Our Motel services include a spacious backyard area with beautiful towering pine trees and, in season, we have a barbecue grill, picnic tables, and gardens.
