            Absolutely the worst experience that I have ever had at Saratoga and I have been coming here for 30 years. The rooms were dirty, and dingy; the halls smelled musty. I was bitten all over my legs (20 or 30 bites) which I think came from the bed. We asked them to spray, which they said they did, but the bites continued. My wife was concerned and wanted me to see a doctor, but I refused and tried to go with the flow. That is until check out time. We booked a room at $270.00 per night for two nights. Good deal, right? I then extended it through the front desk.Big Mistake. We stayed five nights at what I thought was the same rate. Not! I was now being charged at the rate of $399.00 per night. When I went to check out my bill, which I thought would be about $1000 to $1200 after a deposit of $300.00 ended up being $2000.00. I was not only shocked but livid. The reason according to the front desk was that the rates were fluid and changed day to day. Hello! We were charged $200.00 for our little 4 pound chihuahua although the hotel was supposed to be "pet friendly". When I questioned this they said they did not know we had a pet even though we carried her in while checking in. The front desk staff was incompetent, snotty and downright rude. I noticed others who were checking out also had problems. I am an attorney and like to keep a low profile when on vacation. However, after suffering through the humiliation just described and having been eaten alive by something in the room, I am not going to let this pass. Saratoga is such a classy place, the track, in my opinion, is the best in the world and the town is just magnificent. The Gideon Putnam, however, is out of place in such a mecca of horse racing and pure class and elegance which is Saratoga.

            The location of the resort was what we liked about it the best and the fact it resides in the middle of beautiful Saratoga State park.

            The fact that our stay was during the busiest time of the year for Saratoga, August, we found the hotel to be extremely short of staff everywhere we turned. To the extent of the valet. We had to stand there for quite some time for service. On that Thursday evening we had a nice dinner out in saratoga returning to the bar for a night cap and witnessed the bar area with over 60 (I counted) patrons with ONE waitstaff person. We ended up walking out and went to our room ! Very disappointing!

            I was unimpressed with the Gideon Putnum. The hotel's age outweighs it's character. The tile in the bathroom was chipping, the furniture in the room was worn, etc. It looked as though a lot of cost cutting measures were in effect. The view of the park was certainly the best part of the room.

            The staff. The hotel billed at least 10 rooms of fellow friends, $300+ for smoking in the room charges and none of us smoke. We've been trying to contact the Manager to discuss these erroneous charges, but the manager will not return our calls.

            The mattress was particularly comfortable.

            We stayed in room 311. there was constant banging(like a sliding door opening and closing all night). Also: I view the Gidgeon as a place I would certainly return to>>>very clean, friendly, helpful and courteous staff. However...... With such a high end hotel, I would have expected better quality from the breakfast. The waffles were not freshly made in the waffle iron. I confronted the staff about it. They had been frozen and simply warmed up. Mine was cold and tasteless. I ate the fruit and 1/2 of the waffle because I needed something in my stomach. If I return, I certainly will stick with an omlette. Other than that, my wife and I want to return in the Spring/Summer months.

            I wish to thank Terry, Kim and Rich at the Gideon Putnam Resort and Spa they provided great guest care, it is truly wonderful to have people like Terry, Kim and Rich to make your stay very enjoyable.

            The shower was a puzzle to operate
