“Good value in convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We used this hotel as an overnight before a camping trip in Adirondack lakes region. Small, clean hotel, right off main road, on Lake Flower. Rooms were clean, everyone was friendly and the owner even watched for an important UPS package delivery for us. Sure, its not the Hilton, but for the price, it was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Best to stay toward lake, so you area away from busy road, (which is where we were placed)

We chose the Lake Flower based on the reviews on this site. We were not disappointed at all. We arrived to find clean and comfortable rooms, walking distance to gooda good Italian restaurant, and a clean, well-maintained pool. It's not fancy but it's a very good value for the price.

Almost every year we stay at the Lake Flower Inn. Its best feature is Kim Walesky, the innkeeper. The accommodations are always clean, the pool fun for everyone, but Kim makes it a fun, funny and enjoyable experience!

My husband and I traveled with my mom to up State New York a few weeks ago and we stayed at the Lake Flower Inn Motel at Saranac Lake for one night. We originally had thought about staying in Lake Placid but after being in Lake Placid for a few hours one afternoon we were glad our motel was away from the traffic and noise of Lake Placid.

Our room was great and comfortable. It was not really modern but clean and we had everything we needed including a mini-fridge. We really enjoyed sitting on the lawn chairs facing the lake and we also appreciated the proximity to restaurants. We walked to a restaurant for dinner and it was great. There is a pool as well but we did not go in.

The staff at the motel was also nice and helpful. We would stay there again. Great place, good location and great value.

Room Tip: Away from the road is better when asking for a room

The room was spotless and the place was extremely well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was strong with plenty of hot water. The location is directly on Lake Flower and only a few minutes walk to the center of town where there are several places to eat and have a drink. The place has a pool, a canoe which guests can use, free wi-fi, and free coffee in the morning. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Really I can not think of anything negative. Overall an excellent value and I would highly recommend the Lake Flower Inn to anyone visiting the Adirondack region.

We visited this motel for Ironman Lake Placid weekend and were very pleased with the proximity to LP. For the price and location (and the fact that they didn't require a 5+ day minimum stay like places in LP do for IMLP weekend) it was a good value. I also really liked that there was one parking space designated per room which was right in front of the door to the room itself. Very convenient for load-in and load-out if luggage and coolers - or for dragging in sleepy kids on those late nights!

The hotel itself is well-kept and clean, but dated. Linens were well-used but clean and the beds - well, lets just say I wouldn't suggest looking too closely under the waterproof mattress covers (but hey, they had mattress covers - big plus!). The whole place has a 50's vibe going, with pink tile in the bathroom - very typical for older lodging in the 'dacks. Again, clean and well-kept, though.

My one big complaint - and I think it was an isolated incident - was the pool schedule. Having smaller kids, the pool was a huge factor in deciding to stay at this motel: built-in entertainment! We were there for three days and four nights and planned on using the pool each and every day, weather permitting. Two of the three days we were there, the pool opened quite late (1+ hours each day) despite the weather being absolutely ideal for swimming - again, this was probably an isolated issue and the proprietor did apologize for the problems, but if the pool matters greatly to you I'd simply suggest you call and confirm the schedule and availability prior to your visit.

We have enjoyed our visit to Lake Flower Inn for the past four years and Kim has always been charming and very helpful and has the fresh hot coffee ready in the mornings. We have enjoyed the fireworks from their pool/lakeside area during the winter carnival.
