For $180.00 they should give you the Raid can, They should tell you how many spider webs you'll come across. In fact they should make it a guessing game..if you guess right, you get a free night stay and this infested cob web festival resort. Listen, I don't rent a place and inspect it with a white glove- but we...

We take great pride in maintaining the highest sanitation standards in all our rooms. A review of trip advisor reports will reflect that we are one of the top rated motels and we were awarded a certificate of excellence this year by trip advisor. Why would you wait until checkout the following day to report such problems. An inspection of...

Steve was extremely helpful, he recommended a restaurant for us and called them to make sure they were open. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We will definately be staying here again. We found a new home away from home! The location and views made this place a very peaceful place.

I selected Sara-Placid based on previous TripAdvisor reviews, and can reaffirm the positive comments made by previous contributors. Steve is an affable fellow who offered a great rate and attentive service. My room was clean and spacious, and the views of the pond and Lake Flower were appreciated. If you play tennis, two "service-able" (pun!) courts are located directly across...

Sara-Placid gets my vote (wife's too) for our number one place to stay in the Saranac/Lake Placid! area. The owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Nice atmosphere and a view of the lake and pond. Restaurants and groceries nearby. We shall return.

This room was a good fit. Free hbo and wifi and the bed was comfortable. A nice view and nice flat screen tv. Only bad thing I have to say is that during taking a shower the hot water kept turning cold but besides that everything was perfect.

I've stayed there twice in the last year and found the accommodations both comfortable and very clean. The rooms are well-kept and attractive. All rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave which I need since everything closes early up in the North Country so I can eat when I need to. The owners are very accommodating and attentive to your needs....
