This hotel was very good. Rooms were nicely decorated, clean, amenities were good, front desk people were very friendly & helpful. Breakfast offerings were ok, but coffee could have been improved. Also, some more fresh fruit and juice would have been nice.

Improvements at The Mountain Lake Hotel Review of Best Western Saranac Lake Reviewed 2 days ago Excellent customer service by clerks Dharty and Kalla. They anticipated all of our needs and went out of their way to extend every courtesy to us. We reserved a particular room and they supplied all of the extra supplies that we needed before we requested them. Apparently they remembered us from our previous stay at the hotel. We had also stayed there the previous year when it was under different management and staff then was completely inferior.

Staff is very friendly. However, the hotel is dirty. In this age of Covid how can there be mold growing in the bathroom? Pool was closed, but was not stated so when we booked. Being across the street from the lake, is not on the lake.

We've stayed here several times over the years while visiting family in the area. It's always been a good and convenient place to say, and their (affordable!) pet-friendly capability makes traveling with our dog low-stress. New owners very friendly and helpful.

We preregistered to arrive between 4-6. At 4:30 out room was not ready. A short time later we were advised that the room was ready. The room appeared to be clean but there was debris on the floor and the bathroom counter was not clean. We wiped everything down with disinfectant. Breakfast was not great partly because of the COVID situation but the bag breakfast was pretty poor. One ice machine did not work at all and the other one was an effort to get ice.
