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

I had booked reservations with another hotel and then heard back from this one and the price was $70 less. I decided to chance it and was very happy with the results. The owners were super accommodating with our very late arrival/check-in, the room was spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small and... More
