We've been enjoying our summer visits here for over a decade! The owners are friendly, very accommodating and they go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. Great location in the heart of Saranac Lake: easy walk to Main Street, swimming at Colby or Clear lakes, easy boat access to Flower lake and just a 10 minute drive to Lake Placid and half hour to Wild Center. Very reasonable rates. You'll be happy you stayed.

Excellent service. Owners Edie and Joe were very welcoming and accommodating with delicious coffee in the office every morning. They know a lot about the area and had good suggestions for dining and activities. They are 2 wonderful people with great sense of humor! Their dog "Tristan" was delightful and very friendly. For non-dog people, meeting him is optional. The room was large and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds. Nice and quiet. Walking distance to town of Saranac Lake and very convenient to Lake Placid, Whiteface and Tupper Lake Wild Center.

We enjoyed our one night stopover here on our way from NH to visit friends further west. Very clean, neat and well maintained property. Close to downtown and fit the bill for what we were looking for. Great hosts and very helpful to us about getting to know the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Because of a family commitment that required getting up at 4:00 AM and taking care of grandchildren, we couldn't come from our home 45 miles away and needed a good bed minutes away from our daughter's house. Through this past winter, we depended upon the hospitality of Evie and Joe for one night almost every week. Amanda's is well furnished, cozy, and immaculate. It is located in the heart of Saranac Lake, right where you need to be to take advantage of the town's many attractions. Not fancy, but economical and very comfortable.

We had a wonderful experience at this motel over Martin Luther King weekend. The place was very clean, quaint, and close to downtown. A true Saranac Lake experience. The owners were super nice! Will stay there again for sure.
