I recently enjoyed a very pleasant stay at this motel. I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it. On a value scale, I would actually rate it a 3.5 stars then adjust by price. At $100 per room, I think it is 4 stars. At $125+, I think it is 3 stars. What confuses me is the number... More

Thank you for your review and comments. Your suggestion that I should spend a little more and purchase bottle shampoo will be implemented as soon as my current supply is gone. The towels that we use meet the requirement for AAA three diamond properties. I wish that you would have shown me your towels while you were here. I will... More

We stayed here again this year with another couple and Steve (owner) was helpful again. The rooms were clean and fresh smelling. There were plenty of towels etc. for our use. There is a nice restaurant near by that is good for breakfast and lunch. We had dinner at Cascade Inn in Lake Placid (good meals).

We were visiting relatives and seeing the sites at Lake Placid. The owner gave us an upgrade on our room since there were three of us traveling together. We felt very welcome, the room and accommodations were good and it was convenient to a restaurant next door. Would definitely stay here again.

We felt fortunate to receive a very personable service from the owner Steve. We had 3 small children and were coming late Friday night. Steve stayed up waiting for us and also very thoughtfully heated up the cottage for us. You could not ask for more. truly excellent service.

I've stayed at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn on three or four occasions including my latest stay: four nights in late September, 2013. The rooms are very nice, always clean and in excellent condition. The prices are reasonable, and Steve (the owner) is very helpful with directions, suggestions, and general knowledge of the Saranac Lake area. The location on Lake Flower... More

My father in law stayed at the Sara-Placid every fall, and was very pleased with it. This was our first time staying in a room there, and we will be back. Very comfortable, good customer service. Thanks!

Very pleasant owner(Steve) and very clean and quiet room. Good rates and beautiful scenery. I would go back if I'm in the area. Close to restaurant and stores. Saranac Lake is a beautiful town to visit and lots to do. Claude the Baker.

super clean (I have a thing about nasty floor, and germs). I always bring my own blankets but theirs were freshly washed. Kitchen was so cute, and even had supplies like pots , pans and plates and such if you wanted to cook there. A beautiful front area with gazebo and small pond, and across the street was Lake Flower.... More
