If booking in the summer, book ahead. Hotel was full and saw guests turned away. Worth booking in Saranac Lake instead of placid due to price. We booked last minute and got a road facing king bed the first night which was great. Room is large enough for couple and microwave and fridge was good. Old style coffee maker and...

Very good standard Best Western hotel. As other reviewers said, the style is a bit dated, but very clean room, halls and lobby, covered portico which we appreciated as we had several rainy days, and attentive, friendly staff. Desk staff could not have been more helpful. Restaurant (breakfast & lunch) next door gives a discount to hotel guests. Convenient parking...

Very nice on the phone and accommodating. Check in was quick and easy. We requested a roll away and it was in the room, ready to unfold. We had 2 adults, 3 children and we were comfortable for the three nights we were there. It was quiet so it must be well insulated. It was within walking distance of at...

I have stayed in many best western hotels over the years and this rates at the top. clean organized and a wonderful location. the only negatives I could come up with are that they had no breakfast in hotel, even though they have a restaurant on the property, they should have had coffee in lobby. also no king beds in...

This older hotel provides clean rooms, comfortable beds, and a central location to both Saranac Lake, NY and the Lake Placid area, without staying in the crowded Lake Placid Area, Just 8 miles from Lake Placid. The water temperature and pressure in has a damp towel type of smell, while my husband said something had been burned and the odor...

The hotel is clean and lovely. We were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking. The rate we paid was quite high, and was higher than advertised on website. It did not include breakfast. But this is a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it.

When I first pulled in I was a bit nervous. the roof was all beat up, the carpet seemed old, there was this weird scummy pond next door, and it just looked outdated. When we go in it was clean and comfortable though. The staff was nice too. Take note though, they are pet friendly. So dogs and such in...

Recently traveled with my elderly parents to Saranac Lake and had made reservations here for a handicap room and a joing room or a room close so that we could assist them. They were given a first floor room and us a second floor ?? When we expressed our displeasure the front desk lady said there was nothing she could...

Stayed for one night with friends. Hotel is older but well maintained. Pool is indoor and nice. Staff is very friendly. Room was very clean and large. Since it is in a tourist area the price is not cheap but I think it was a good deal.

This area is beautiful and great for boating and hiking. The restaurants we visited were good. The Mexican restaurant was busy but good. We stopped at Tail of the Pup on the way in to Saranac Lake and had a good lunch. Both restaurants were reasonably priced. It was a great getaway.
