The website leads you to believe that you are staying in a high end HOTEL, but this is merely a side-of-the -road MOTEL. Upon check in, the staff was friendly, but not customer service oriented. The normally priced $79.00 per night hotel was priced at $160.00 per night for a lake view room (minimum 3 night stay, no cancellations after...

Our Nantucket Island Waves synchronized skating team stayed at this Inn for a competition which was located a few miles away in Lake Placid. The service was outstanding and the employees were above and beyond helpful and kind. The location was perfect. Our Room was clean and spacious. I highly recommend the Gauthier Inn at Saranac Lake to anyone who...

We always come to the area in January for some hiking and normally stay in Lake Placid. This time all the rooms were sold old and we decided to stay at Gauthier's. We didn't do any research but we ended up having a great stay. The office staff, Hasan, who enjoys the blues, was helpful as were the others. The...

I had stayed here in a trip to lake placid area. Most of the other hotels were higher priced and this one was very reasonable. The room had a beautiful lake view and was very quiet. We had a nice stay and would stay again.

Is there anything better than the Adirondacks in the fall? I love the Saranac Lake area, and Gauthier's makes the experience better. They have beautiful, clean rooms, excellent views of the mountains, and right on the water of Lake Flower. The owners do a great job of making your stay memorable, plus their local knowledge helps finding fun daily activities...

Beware! These people do not care about their visitors health or well-being, and they are highly deceptive. Before booking, I talked at great length with one of the three owners on the phone, who proudly assured me that they use only one non-toxic, fragrance-free cleaner on everything, including laundry. I explained that I have serious allergies and am highly chemically...

As you informed us, if we did not allow continued stay with us, you would write a poor review. In the best way possible, given the situation, I explained we were no longer comfortable with your stay, felt you were also not comfortable; which is not how I want my guests to feel, and it would be best if you...

I stayed for several days while attending a family reunion in Bloomingdale. I thought that Gauthiers was truly everything I would expect from a local motel. The beds were super comfortable, the rooms were clean, and the staff was super attentive and helpful. They have kayaks, bicycles and fishing gear for use by their guests, and it's in a great...

We chose this Inn as it had free paddling, kayaking etc. and was priced in a reasonable range. It was clean, tidy and the staff were helpful with info on eating and things to do in the area. Some of the equipment could be updated as oars and seats were not in great shape but we would definitely stay again...
