Saranac Lake was the first stop in our 17 day road trip. We decided to stay in Saranac Lake rather than Lake Placid and we were glad we did. This small town is quiet and very pretty with the town wrapping itself around the lake. I can only image how pretty it would be in the fall. We chose Amanda's... More

This summer we did a road trip to the east coast and back. We stayed in lots of motels, each for one night. I've written reviews you can read if you want. I experienced many less than stellar rooms for the price charged. I guess I look for 'value'. I don't want to pay an arm & a leg and... More

My husband and I stayed at this motel along with his parents, brother, sister-in-law and our best friend. We stayed for 4 nights in July when he did Ironman Lake Placid! It is just a few miles outside of Lake Placid and was very quiet with a pretty lake and park just across the street. Joe and Edie are the... More

I stayed here for Ironman 2015. I enjoyed staying in Saranac Lake and being away from the craziness of Lake Placid. Amanda's is a short walk to town with easy access restaurants, delis and other services. Joe and Edie were so accommodating. They made my stay relaxing and stress free before competing in the Ironman. I will definitely stay there... More

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
