Good value for money. A friendly welcome. Everything clean. Lots of room and on top of that there were boats available for the lake. OK - it looks like a motel but don't let that put you off. Good value for a family.

What I loved the most was that they had all sorts of activities available--FREE OF CHARGE. Wanna bike, kayak, SUP, hike, play basketball, etc.? They've got the equipment you need, and they won't nickel and dime you with rental fees. To me, that means they're encouraging folks to get outdoors and enjoy the Adirondacks. I probably wouldn't pay to rent... More

Gauthier's is the type of motel your parents would have stayed at in the 1960s. The service is welcoming and helpful, the rooms are comfortable and clean (though the bed was far too soft) and have most of the expected amenities, but the motel has a slightly dated feel to it. Some rooms have balconies and views of Lake Flower.... More

Maybe it's because it's winter but I don't think it's worth the price... The only saving grace is it's clean and the front desk guy was great! The rooms are very dated and the tv was from the 80s and blurry... The bed was so uncomfortable I didn't sleep at all because springs were poking me.... In the summer it... More

The website leads you to believe that you are staying in a high end HOTEL, but this is merely a side-of-the -road MOTEL. Upon check in, the staff was friendly, but not customer service oriented. The normally priced $79.00 per night hotel was priced at $160.00 per night for a lake view room (minimum 3 night stay, no cancellations after... More

Our Nantucket Island Waves synchronized skating team stayed at this Inn for a competition which was located a few miles away in Lake Placid. The service was outstanding and the employees were above and beyond helpful and kind. The location was perfect. Our Room was clean and spacious. I highly recommend the Gauthier Inn at Saranac Lake to anyone who... More

We always come to the area in January for some hiking and normally stay in Lake Placid. This time all the rooms were sold old and we decided to stay at Gauthier's. We didn't do any research but we ended up having a great stay. The office staff, Hasan, who enjoys the blues, was helpful as were the others. The... More
