We spent 8 nights at this wonderful motel and can not wait to return. After a week at a so called "Big Hotel" chain we found the nicest place in the village. Location is perfect for all of your needs. Walking distance to fine dining, downtown and directly across the road from the Lake Flower boat launch. The owners take... More

Our kind of place! Older, but VERY clean and the owners could not have been more friendly. And extremely centrally located so we could walk to everything. First night we walked about a mile to the Blue Line Brewery for dinner. Next day we walked downtown for breakfast and scouted out our Rail Explorers site. (Bicycle rail cars). GREAT adventure....

We arrived in Saranac Lake by canoe after traveling over the past 6 days from Old Forge NY. We have a couple of establishments in the area that we normally stay when not camping in the Saranac area. After calls to both of them and finding them full, we stopped over at Amanda’s on the chance that they may have... More

We were extremely happy with our stay at this very clean, friendly motel. The rooms and grounds were spotless and the owners, Joe and Edie, were terrific hosts. It was like we had known them for years. They were very helpful with information and suggestions for great places to eat and visit. We will definitely come back when we are... More

Joe and Edie are fabulous owners. We stayed here for only one night having to pick up our daughter in Lake Place...wish it could have been longer. Excellent location - close to lake, town. If your looking for a Holiday Inn Express ~~ this is not it. It's personal attention from the owners and their dog, Tristen that make this... More

My husband and I have been staying at this motel for about the past 10 years. The motel is conveniently located on Rt 86 across from the lake. There is a boat slip about 2 blocks away. Its an easy walk into the town and a quick drive to Lake Placid. The Wild Center is only about a 20 minute... More

Very comfortable family-owned mid-20th century motel. Quiet. Rooms are spacious and immaculate with outdoor decks with chairs and tables. Owners have much local info and a passion for dogs. Easy walk to lake and town. One big drawback: a big step up makes most rooms wheelchair-inaccessible.

On the way home from a weekend trip in the Adirondacks, my friends and I experienced some car trouble. We were referred to Amanda's Village Motel to stay while the car was being worked on. We explained our situation to the owners, Joe and Edie, they were very understanding and accommodating. They gave us a discount for both nights and... More

Our room was clean and quiet, with a comfortable bed and Dog Friendly. The Owners are delightful people and made us feel a part of their extended family. Joe gave tips on all the restaurants in town and Edie spoiled our black lab with a whole bag of treats. The motel is right across the street from the Ice Castle... More

We enjoyed a clean, comfy, quiet stay at Amanda's. Yes, there was some traffic noise but not too bad. There are porches on the motel units which is a nice touch. The rooms are dated but it fits the Adirondack flavor of a visit. The location is perfect since we could bring our kayaks across the road to the lake... More
