This was one of the few places we were able to find that had available rooms for new years at a reasonable price. The hotel was clean with convenient parking, and a heated pool. One of the few downsides is that breakfast wasn't included, but visitors are offered a 10% discount at a local diner McKinley's Grill which is a... More

Last minute getaway to the Saranac/Placid area so we didn't have many choices. Rate was very good and we were satisfied with the cleanliness and location. About 10 minutes from Lake Placid so we couldn't have asked for more convenience. Bill greeted us and was very helpful in showing us area attractions.

We were very happy with our stay at the Best Western in Saranac. Our room was clean and everyone was friendly and the location was close to everything we wanted to do. They don't have a continental breakfast, but there is a restaurant right next door and the food is excellent.

So new you if you closed your eyes you would think you were in a carpet store. Spacious rooms and helpful front desk. Staff are all friendly as you would expect to find when visiting the north country.

A chilly fall day when we checked in. Very friendly at check-in. The hotel was clean and quiet. We booked a pet friendly room. We have two dogs and it was quite simple. Thankfully the hotel was not so busy.

We arrived at the hotel on one of the last weekends with the Fall Foilage. There was no availability at any other hotels or we wouldn't have stayed here. The room was a double room with 2 Queen beds, nice room but smelled smokey and musty (even though it was a non-smoking room). The smoke detector kept beeping until we... More

The rate was a little high - $125 + tax but it's the best lodging in Saranac Lake Clean, neat, comfortable. Wish they had an "included in the rate" breakfast.....but did appreciate the $10 disc at the on site restaurant

Room was very clean and comfortable. Pool was great. Family enjoyed the stay. Stayed one night only but should have stayed longer. Free apples at the check-in desk were provided. Front desk staff were extremely helpful.
