Lake Flower Inn
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Saranac Lake
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We normally book our stays in advance, my wife being the ultimate "Travel Planner", but on a road trip through New England, we were unsure how far we wanted to go on the third day, so we decided to take a chance on finding a good place to stay. Arriving in Lake Placid, we found it full of horses for their annual big horse event, so we moved on to Saranac Lake, the next little ski resort town along the route. Saranac Lake shows the results of what happens when you put millions into one resort for the Olympics; the other little towns suffer a decline because everyone goes to the "popular" spot.

The Lake Flower Inn is almost the closest motor inn to the town itself, being a short walk from downtown. It has a great location, close to everything and right on the lake. This is a basic old fashioned style Motor Inn; two banks or rooms, perpendicular to the road with a swimming pool down by the lake and the office up front. The room was clean, the WiFi fast and the hostess friendly and helpful; what more could you want? We had an excellent sleep, could walk to a delicious meal for dinner, and easily access downtown by foot.

There were only two cars in the parking lot overnight, showing how Lake Placid dominates the tourist dollar in the area, but this nice little Motel in Saranac Lake is an inexpensive alternative, worth the drive.

Wonderful Inn sitting on Flower Lake, greeted by a pleasant Innkeeper named Kim very kind and caring to my needs with a great lasting smile, the rooms were clean and large, bathrooms were also very clean. Outside area was nice docks to fish off or just sit and watch the sun sit, well maintained yard and close to all the shops.

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.
