We have stayed at this Motor inn several times, but this stay was the best ever. The owner (Steve) upgraded our accomidations without us even asking, we were more than satisfied with the condo that we had booked, but he put us into a beautiful lake front apartment at the same low rate as the condo. I cannot say enough about the friendly service, super clean accomidations and reasonable prices. Take a look at thier web site, www.sara-placid.com. Quite honestly it is even nicer that it looks on the Web. Truly a "Gem" in the Adirondacks. Do yourself a favor, stay once with Steve and you will be a return guest for the rest of your life.

We stayed here this year for the winter carnival and it was a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were both clean and the beds were comfortable. Steve the owner was always on site and available and had the parking lot and sidewalks cleared on Saturday night and Sunday morning after they had about ten inches of fluffy snow. There was plenty of coffee available in the rooms. Since this visit was in the winter time we didn't get to walk around the property but will probably be back during the summer.

This was our second stay at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. We were drawn there by the jacuzzi suite, as we planned on a long day of cross country skiing before our stay. As with our prior visit (last winter after snowshoeing up Mt. Marcy), we were very satisfied. The motel is easy to pass by on the road, but the suite we stayed in offered a great value compared to similar rooms at higher end properties in the area. The Inn appears to be primarily owner-operated, and he was very pleasant and helpful.

Stayed here over the weekend for some biking and hiking. The room was clean and pretty and well appointed, with a little fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The owner was very nice to us and I believe the price was better than many in the area. The location was super, walk or bike to everything.

We have just returned from another wonderful (but too short) stay at the Sara Placid Motel. This motel is bar far one of the best that we have stayed in and we travel quite a bit. The service is outstanding. Steve is a great host and always aims to please. His rooms are the cleanest around with beautiful beds and decor. Every year that we stay there we find upgrades including Flat Screen TV's and extremely comfortable mattresses. The Sara Placid has a room for everyone from a basic room with amenities such as refrigerators, microwave ovens, and coffee makers to rooms with kitchenettes and fully equiped apartments as well as two beautiful homes to rent on beautiful Lake Flower along with docks if you bring your own boat. We can't say enough good things about the Sara Placid and we highly recommend this motel to anyone traveling to the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid area. The location is wonderful. There is a nice restaurant next door that has great breakfasts and our favorite Mexican restaurant is within a short walk. Lake Placid is just 10 minutes down the road. Do yourself a favor and try the Sara Placid the next time you are in the area. You won't be sorry. Then like me and my husband you will want to tell all your friends what a great place this is to stay!
