HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed one night at this hotel. Place looked fairly empty but that's probably due to being in March. Waited a bit for clerk but check in was speedy. She had good suggestions for dinner within walking distance.

A decent choice in Saranac Lake. Bill at front desk was very nice. Our room was large and smelled clean. It was quiet at night. No elevator, but that wasn't a problem for a weekend stay. My only complaint was that our sheet were very wrinkled and it made me wonder if they were fresh or had been slept in...

Always stay in this hotel when I am in the area. You always know what type of room you will get when staying at a best western. Just wish it had a breakfast buffet in the building as opposed to the restaurant.

The staff was very helpful, Location was near arena's and shopping. Easy to find on street. The staff let the team use a conference room when needed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Overall great stay at this hotel.

This was perfect for the night after an event in Lake Placid. The staff checking in was friendly. And the room and decor overall was updated reasonably enough. The room was a bit cold when we first walked in but obviously an easy fix to just turn on the heat and all was fine.

We stayed four nights at this Best Western hotel during Christmas Holiday. The main purpose of our visit is to ski at Whiteface Mountain which is about 20 mins away from this hotel. We chose this location because of its cheaper rates and being away from the busy scenes of Lake Placid. It turned out to be a right decision....

My family and I stayed here to cross country ski at Cascade and had a wonderful stay. The hotel has a nice indoor pool and a breakfast and lunch restaurant next to the hotel. It is centrally located to skiing , the village of Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. The cost was a good value.

Caring, genuine staff, beautifully maintained property, breakfast at McKenzie's was just what we needed after a night or ringing in the New Year until the early hours of the morning. No question that this is the place to stay in Saranac Lake, gorgeous scenery nestled in the capital of the Adirondacks!

Stayed here the night before an early morning youth hockey game in the area. Easy reservation and check in/out processes. Hotel was filled with other youth hockey groups, so there was joyful noise in the hallways, the pool, and in the conference room. Noise stopped at reasonable hour. Room was clean. Fridge, flat screen, and plenty of room to spread...

After a long day of enjoying the beauty of the high peaks, this was a welcome respite. Our room was clean, and comfortable. The temperature was great, the bed was comfy and we were able to get a good night's sleep. There were a few things that we were not fully satisfied with, mainly the price of the hotel. The...
