The owner was great! Very friendly and informative. Clean room, comfortable bed and we did not hear the road noise, even though its right on the main highway. Gazebo and chairs are very nice. We walked across the street and enjoyed a dock on the lake. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance also. We would definitely stay here again!

This really is a very good motel; well managed and maintained, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Although it is just off quite a busy road, we were not disturbed by traffic noise and it was especially lovely to be able to sit and relax beside the lake. There is a good place for breakfast five minutes walk from the motel.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening in Saranac Lake and rested comfortably at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. The room was very clean, motel was quiet and wifi was much appreciated. As another reviewer noted, it takes a while for the hot water to get hot but once it does you have plenty! We were able to walk to... More

Definitely a wonderful motel! Over a year ago while visiting family in Saranac Lake that instead of the motel/hotel where we would generally stay, it was suggested we try the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. We are very happy that we gave it a try. We just recently spent another long weekend in the area and stayed our second time at the... More

We wanted to spend our vacation climbing the High Peaks and exploring the lakes and nearby towns. There is no better place than the Sara-Placid Motor Inn to stay while accomplishing these goals. Firstly, the Sara-Placid is clean and comfortable. The sheets were soft and the pillows were plump. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and we never wanted for... More

Stopped in later in the evening and had a good night sleep. The place is clean and has a good access. The water Doesn't run hot in the rooms closest to the office for a while so leave it run 5 minutes before you need it.

Glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Sara-Placid, with exception of having to wait for the hot water to arrive. Sorry that I didn't tell you that it could take a little while for the hot water, if you were the first person to draw it. Hopefully, it really didn't take five minutes. Steve/Owner More

We are a family of 5 and stayed at Camp Sunset ( a part of Sara-Placid Motor Inn). It had all the conveniences of being at home (washer/dryer, full kitchen and bath) BUT BETTER because every morning and every night we got to look out over Lake Flower. Clean, very accomodating staff and friendly place to stay. Didn't want to... More

We were canoeing in a wilderness area. We planned 5 nights of camping, but a monster rain storm was too much for our tent. We decided to return a day early. It was Friday in a resort area in late June--- stay where? After paddling 16 miles in rainy weather, we got back to our car and cell phones. Best... More
