we reserved room 3 for a trip to saranac lake over fathers day weekend 2015. Our travel was for a tandem bicycle rally based in the town. Amandas was one of the closest lodgings to our start point for our weekend rides. when I placed the reservation, I inquired about the ability to keep our long bicycle inside the room... More

I've been coming back to Saranac Lake now for a few years, and have tried some different places to stay in the area. I've settled on Amanda's as the "go-to" place. I'm sitting in the room as I write this review. It's set right on the main street (River St.) - the lake is across the street. But you are... More

We have stayed here numerous times. Joe and Edie make it a special place. They are so accommodating. While the rooms are a bit dated they are spotlessly clean and it ads to the charm of the place. We found this years ago after a bad experience at another local hotel. I have traveled all over for work and wish... More

We stayed for two nights on labor day weekend and had a lovely time. The motel was clean and close to town. The bathroom was small, but clean and well stocked. Everything worked well. The little porch area was clean, and all the grounds were well cared for. The owner was so sweet. She was cleaning the rooms herself and... More

Edie and Joe were so helpful. They were willing to put themselves out to help me. Great to be so close to NCCC, the forests, and lakes. The traffic noise was a bit hard to get used to, but it didn't go through the night. Beautifully clean room and fresh towels daily. It would have been nice to have a... More

Here is one disappointing experience. although the room was clean it is very outdated. the buildings need a face lift - painting, replace or remove the owning, trim the shrubs etc.etc. at here is no hear dryer, nor a coffee pot in the room. Coffee was offered from 7:30 to 9:00 am in the office not very convenient! All in... More

Edie and Joe were extremely hospitable and helped us navigate our first trip to Saranac/ADKs. Joe was spot on with restaurant recommendations, and the Visitor's Center 2 doors down had stacks of bike/hike trail maps as well as any travel brochure you can think of. Edie gave us free ferry tickets and we were able to get us and our... More

I am staying at Amanda's Village Motel for the third time for the July 4th weekend. I am looking for to seeing Edie and Joe again. They are dog friendly too so I can get my doggy fix when I'm away. They are great and they make the vacation feel like home!

A lovely retro property, perfect for a group like our antique car club - the cars looked right at home among the porches of the units. The owners were warm and friendly and treated us all like family. They worked hard to ensure that we had great experiences during our stay. The rooms were spotless, the wi-fi worked well, and...

Hubby and I stayed the night for a retirement party downtown; we decided on Amanda's on a whim because it was within walking distance. Adorable place, owners were lovely, room was spotless and reminded me of the Lake George camps of my childhood (only with heat!). A great, affordable place to stay.
