Our extended family stayed here for three nights, renting a number of rooms, for a reunion\wedding. It was perfect. Spectacular view, water activities galore with easy access, bikes that let the teens go off to do their own exploring, one mile walk to an adorable town, and weather that brought us beautiful sunny skies, electrical light shows and brilliant sunsets....

If you are a "Baby Boomer" this place will bring back memories of your childhood stay at a " family motel on the Lake". It is the "real" motel experience. Rooms are clean, and ours lakeside # 41 had a wonderful,breath taking view of the Lake and flat screen TV. While in the village of Saranac you are actually on... More

We chose Gauthier's many years ago for its location, complimentary waterfront access to Lake Flower, nearby access to supermarkets, pharmacies, and Happy Meals. Great location when you have young kids. We still chose Gauthier's today as they continuously work hard to improve their property and what they offer guests.

We were visiting family friends in the area, and stayed at the Saranac Lake Inn for three nights. I think the staff was very friendly and very helpful. The room was comfortable, and we slept pretty well. The room and the bathroom (we had a standard poolside room) were both large enough. The Inn is just off of the State... More

I went with my parents and my nieces for my dad's birthday to the Adirondacks. I left the planning to my parents, and dad had booked one room for the five of us (?) but it was his birthday, so I went along to get along. Hasan was there at the desk to greet us when we arrived, they were... More

We stayed in that miserable low class inn (for the price of a 5-star hotel) for the 4th of July holidays. It was the worst nightmare with vicious blood sucking bed bugs hiding in the mattresses, mosquitoes from the lakes, leaking sink that was not taken care of even after we told Hassan, the 'Manager'! He just placed a trash... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel so much we are already planning our next visit! The room was extremely clean, we could even smell the laundry soap on the pillow cases when we went to bed! The staff was so friendly and accommodating and we even met one of the owners, who was working the desk. The fact that... More

It is difficult to review a place you enjoyed so much at the time we even extended our stay, but have been so discomforted subsequently. Due to a check in error on their part, when the booking name and the credit card name were different and having shown them the details, WE WERE CHARGED DOUBLE. Both payments were on the... More

This hotel was a big disappointment. I feel that the online pictures misrepresented the room. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. However it was not as lovely as shown on the website. Overpriced. Left and stayed elsewhere forfeiting $175 for 2nd night.

We have stayed at this Motel before and our return visit was as pleasant and enjoyable as the first. Kudos for cleanliness, comfort, amenities and A for effort in replicating a Level 3 Hotel ! The room, carpets were unstained, unsoiled and aired a feeling of newness. A great design separating a huge sink and bath/shower areas ! The immaculate... More
