We enjoyed a clean, comfy, quiet stay at Amanda's. Yes, there was some traffic noise but not too bad. There are porches on the motel units which is a nice touch. The rooms are dated but it fits the Adirondack flavor of a visit. The location is perfect since we could bring our kayaks across the road to the lake... More

I had booked reservations with another hotel and then heard back from this one and the price was $70 less. I decided to chance it and was very happy with the results. The owners were super accommodating with our very late arrival/check-in, the room was spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small and... More

It's exactly what you think only better! Dated charming and oh so clean! Amanda's is a huge reason for visiting the Saranac area in the fall. Try it, you... More

Like the title states..."I don't normally do motels". I was really apprehensive about staying at a motel. But Joe and Edie, the owners made all the difference! They are wonderful people who want you to be comfortable and feel welcomed. The guest rooms were retro and clean, clean, clean!! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I am...I'd stay at... More

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
