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.

As others have said, the owners are really nice folks. We stayed two nights recently and ended up in the smallest room. It was fine. We're not big folks, and the room. wasn't tiny, just smaller than some. The room was clean and well cared for. My only complaints are that the wi-fi wasn't very good, and it was a... More

This Motel is very clean, quiet and very close to shops and resturants. Joe and Edie are sooo very nice and treat you like family. Morning coffee is good and hot. They take the time to make you feel welcome !!!!! We come back every year.

This hotel is wonderful. Edie & Joe are so friendly and helpful - and Joe makes a great cup of AM coffee! We were in town for some hiking and they offered great advise and were always friendly as we headed out. The motel is also walking distance from downtown unlike some of the others on the lake & still... More

Edie was very friendly, and so was Joe. Both of them had very good recommendations for places to eat and do things. As for a first time stay in Saranac Lake, the location was very convenient to outdoor venues I chose. The room and bed was very comfortable, and there was always a fresh supply of linens in the bathroom... More

Amanda's is a good place to stay when travelling in the Lake Placid area. The rooms are very clean and include a mini fridge which is a bonus. The only drawback for us was the mattress. It was very soft with a dip in the centre which is not very comfortable if you need firm support. However, the hosts, including... More

Edie and Joe were fantastically hospitable. They asked us if everything was okay and we mentioned a burned out light which was fixed almost immediately. The motel itself is a bit old school in decor, but very clean and well-maintained. The lake facing views were lovely and you were within walking distance of just about everything you needed. I'd recommend... More
