I was looking for a place to sleep after driving a bus ten hours from Virginia to pick up a group and carry them home the next day. I needed a place to get a good night's sleep. I pulled in the Lake Flower Inn quite by chance and was very pleasantly surprised. Kim, the owner/operator is friendly and helpful.... More

My husband and I are paddlers and had reservations to camp overnight on the Saranac Islands. We went to the Lake Flower Inn to talk with Kim about our plans to return the next afternoon to stay at the hotel (in the room we had the year before.) Kim not only made that happen, but she let us park in... More

We stayed two nights here right before Labor Day. the rooms were clean and spacious and the location cannot be beat for seeing and experiencing all that the area has to offer. Great places to eat and close to Kayaking and hiking. I would definately stay here again. R

The inn sits right on Lake Harmony. They have a wonderful pool which overlooks the lake and a number of Adirondack chairs to sit and enjoy the views. The rooms were quite spacious and very clean. Kim (the owner) was wonderful and gave us great recommendations of places to eat. The inn is located a short drive (10-15 minutes) from... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Lake Flower Inn. Kim, the owner was wonderful and the rooms were spotless and cleaned daily. Right on Lake Flower with a beautiful view. Reminds me of "On Golden Pond". If I come back to SL I will certainly stay here. Thanks for a great, convienent place to stay while attending my sons wedding. Lynn... More

Clean, but dated. Sits on lake flower with some little docks to walk out on. Pool wasn't open, as it was too cool. Linens and towels were clean. The mattresses are very dated and not comfortable. Mini fridge was nice. Coffee served at the office in the mornings. Owner friendly and personable.

We had a wonderful experience, the owner was very helpful in advising us where to eat and activities that were near by and in Lake Placid. The motel is right on the lake with access to the water, there is a pool and the room was very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.

This is the only place I will stay when visiting Saranac Lake. Rooms were comfortable and spotless - obvious the owner takes great pride in her establishment. She was a wealth of knowledge and very accommodating to all our needs. Kim gave us great recommendations for dinner and things to keep us busy. Motel is right on Lake Flower and... More

Pool was not operational, Owner was not accommodating, seemed more concerned that we, 60yr old something customers would follow their rules, turned our heat down while we were away. Room smelled musty and shower drain did not function well. Room was clean otherwise.

I love staying in 60's era motels. Like many, this one shows some signs of its age. However, it is in generally good condition, very clean, quIet and close to the downtown. It sits right on lake, has a pool and outstanding views. Sitting outside having a late afternoon cocktail and looking at the lake was a real pleasure. The... More
