“Best kept secret in Saranac Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Just returned from our Corvette Club Weekend at Saranac Lake. We stayed at The Adirondack Motel and it was excellent as usual. Fred was all ready for our group when we arrived. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. Every room has a fridge and brand new Keurig coffee makers. The homemade muffins in the morning are delicious. The rooms are all newly renovated with beautiful bathrooms. cozy and inviting and the location couldn't be better. Right on the lake,access to boating and swimming.
Our group stays at the property every June and again in early December for our annual club Holiday party.
If you are heading up to Saranac Lake make sure to give Fred And Sue a call and tell them Pat sent you!!!

We recently stayed at this motel, right on Saranac Lake. Beautiful views, boats available, sweet rooms with the taste of the Adirondack in every touch. Susan and Fred are the quintessential caring and friendly owners. Kuerig coffee makers in the room as well as in the lobby. So accomodating - Sue even came chasing after me when I left my purse.

The Adirondack Motel is a home away from home. My sister, nephew and I stayed two nights in one of the kitchenette rooms last fall, during a cool weekend in the Adirondacks. Every aspects of our stay was simply wonderful. The owner-operators, a lovely couple who I believe live on-site, welcomed us as if we were old friends, with a batch of fresh baked muffins, their signature treat.

The room was homey, with a large bed, pull-out couch, table and chairs and kitchenette including stove, microwave, sink and coffee maker. The BEST part, however, was the view of Lake Flower, especially at night. Twinkling lights of the building on the opposite shore charmed us to sleep.

The owners also allow pets, and their two dogs are wonderful greeters.

We hope to visit Saranac Lake again this summer or fall, and will definitely stay at the Adirondack Motel. While there are many, many places to stay in the area, one would be hard pressed to find better accommodations at double the price. And try to catch a show at the Pendragon Theater, a local theater company that take great pride in the quality of their performances.

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars more for one of the rooms overlooking Lake Flower. It's worth every penny!!!

Thank you for your kind review of our motel. We are delighted that you were comfortable and enjoyed your visit with us; but most of all we truly appreciate your wonderful review of the Village of Saranac Lake and all its features and amenities. We heartily agree with all your recommendations, and also suggest the 3rd Thursday Art Walks during the months of June through September, with Art and Music all around Downtown Saranac Lake!

Stayed here for one night in Feb 2013. Here is our review:

Rooms: Small & no-frills & adequate. Mini fridge in room is too noisy, but not a problem since we turned it off at night. Bathroom is small and clean. Beds are twin sized. There were two beds in our room. Heat was comfortable in winter. TV had good variety of available channels.

Location: Motel is easy to find. The property is located on water, which is great for summer. But in winter there were no activities on the frozen lake.

Price: Paid $131 in high season. In my opinion, its too much for this class of property in winter, but then its high season and it was the last available room.

Conclusion: Adequate accommodations. Friendly owners. Low value for price paid in winter, perhaps better value in summer due to lake front location. Can recommend to friends/family.

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment after your recent visit, and to give us the opportunity to address your concerns regarding our rooms and rates. Our rates are seasonal and can vary widely during event and Holiday periods. February is a wonderful and busy time here in the Adirondacks at the peak of the Winter Season; and President's Day Weekend is one of the most popular times to visit. Our rates on such Holiday weekends will be higher than some other times, and reflect a fair market value. The price mentioned in your review includes the 10 3/4% state and local taxes. Our standard motel rooms all have two beds: some with one queen and one double, others with 2 double beds. None of these motel rooms have twin beds.We do have larger suites, but they are obviously higher in price and were not available for your date.
We sincerely regret that you were not completely satisfied with your visit; and we value your feedback to "keep us on our toes". We will take your comments to heart as we strive to provide our guests with a comfortable and happy experience. And we will pass on to our staff your kind appreciation of their housekeeping!

We stayed two nights at the Adk Motel, and it was a great place to stay. Spotlessly clean, thoughtful touches like a little refrigerator and boot tray in the room, coffee and yummy homemade muffins in the lobby. Very cozy room, comfortable beds with quilts. Rustic lamps and decor. Great view across Flower Lake - we watched the start of the ice castle from our room (it was 8 degrees out!) Convenient - we walked to Nonna Fina for a delicious Italian dinner. We would definitely stay there again.

This motel has an enviable location right on Saranac Lake. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and we had an excellent nights sleep here. We only had a single overnight stop here on our way to Maine, but we would have loved to stay for longer.

The owners recommended and Italian restaurant nearby. The food was very good and it was reasonably priced.

If you are going to Lake Saranac look no further than here for a place to stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the lake.

Our room was comfortable and especially clean. The small frig was really appreciated. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting by the lake at sunset. The motel is dog friendly and, in addition to the motel grounds, there are a lakeside park and good sidewalks very close by. Good Italian restaurant within walking distance or short drive. Would stay there again.
