We had a nice stay here - the room wasn't fancy, but it was comfortable and clean and a nice home base to explore. We walked to fireworks for the Fourth of July, explored around the lake & to town for dinner. The front desk directed us to a watering hole that was popular with locals & we discovered a... More

I stayed here in August and enjoyed a wonderful view of the water. The kayaks were free to use. It was relaxing after a long drive and day of work. Then, the office staff gave me a yummy coffee in a mug that looked like it was from home :-) She also helped with advice on a good place to... More

Visited July 2013. Views just beautiful. Used their canoes and kayaks daily to explore the lakes and channels. Very nice room with balcony. Short walk to middle of town and a shorter walk to ice cream. Very nice renovation. Look forward to returning. D&D

WE are from Hawaii and not professional travelers or professional reviewers. WE chose the location becasue the have complementary canoes, but once we arrived we found that there is so much more. The family-owned aspect showed itself early becasue we booked for one night and ended up staying a week. When we arrived at 4:00pm our kids didn't wait to... More

I stayed here a few summers ago for one night and although this is an older motel, it has been newly renovated. I had a nice few of the lake and a very comfy bed. I loved the mexican restaurant across the street! It was a great night!

Great place. Clean. Friendly. Relaxing. Comfortable. We loved the free use of the canoes, kayaks, paddle boats and bikes. We used them all. Also, sitting by the lake in the evening is like going to heaven. But the friendly owners and staff made the stay super special. Hard working, nice folks who are constantly polishing a gem.

Gauthiers Saranac Lake Inn and Hotel is a great place to stay while visiting the Adirondacks. It is an old-style motor inn that has been completely refurbished and upgraded. The rooms are modern, stylish, very clean, and comfortable, yet the whole place has a very retro, vintage feel to it. Service is very hands-on, friendly, and helpful. It is right... More

My friend and I just returned from a leaf peeping trip to the Adirondacks. We stayed at Gauthier's and had a very pleasent visit.

I've stayed here several times, the first time being when stranded in 2011 due to Hurricane Irene descending upon the area and making roads to home impassable. The rooms are ultra clean and cozy, more like a bed & breakfast than a hotel, with lots of character. I have always enjoyed a room on the lake side, upstairs with a... More
