We have stayed at Amanda's Village Motel in Saranac Lake many times since our daughter has been attending Paul Smith's college. Edie and Joe are the greatest hosts and we've never had any issues. Very clean. We end up getting the same room each time and it has a mini fridge in it, flat screen tv, etc. We don't mind...

We spent 8 nights at this wonderful motel and can not wait to return. After a week at a so called "Big Hotel" chain we found the nicest place in the village. Location is perfect for all of your needs. Walking distance to fine dining, downtown and directly across the road from the Lake Flower boat launch. The owners take...

Our kind of place! Older, but VERY clean and the owners could not have been more friendly. And extremely centrally located so we could walk to everything. First night we walked about a mile to the Blue Line Brewery for dinner. Next day we walked downtown for breakfast and scouted out our Rail Explorers site. (Bicycle rail cars). GREAT adventure....

We were extremely happy with our stay at this very clean, friendly motel. The rooms and grounds were spotless and the owners, Joe and Edie, were terrific hosts.

My husband and I have been staying at this motel for about the past 10 years. The motel is conveniently located on Rt 86 across from the lake. There is a boat slip about 2 blocks away. Its an easy walk into the town and a quick drive to Lake Placid. The Wild Center is only about a 20 minute...

Very comfortable family-owned mid-20th century motel. Quiet. Rooms are spacious and immaculate with outdoor decks with chairs and tables. Owners have much local info and a passion for dogs. Easy walk to lake and town. One big drawback: a big step up makes most rooms wheelchair-inaccessible.
