“Would be returning”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This room was a good fit. Free hbo and wifi and the bed was comfortable. A nice view and nice flat screen tv. Only bad thing I have to say is that during taking a shower the hot water kept turning cold but besides that everything was perfect.

Thank you for your overall excellent rating. Sorry to hear that your water went from hot to cold occasionally. Don't know what the problem could have been. Thanks for bringing the issue to my attention. Steve

I've stayed there twice in the last year and found the accommodations both comfortable and very clean. The rooms are well-kept and attractive. All rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave which I need since everything closes early up in the North Country so I can eat when I need to. The owners are very accommodating and attentive to your needs. Would positively recommend this motel to anyone I know.

Had to book a place last minute for a memorial service. Tough to do with the Can-Am Hockey tournament ongoing. The Sara-Placid Motor Lodge had just 2 available rooms: one had two queen beds and the other had a king. My brother got to them first and booked the king; I got the 2 queens. The room was spacious and very clean. Flat screen tv, dinette table and chairs, refrigerator, coffee maker with supplies. My room had a separate vanity area with sink outside the bathroom. Nice set-up. The bed and pillows were VERY comfy, and the hotel manager was very nice. The only downside was the entrance to the office is very narrow and you can't fit more than 2 people at a time in it. The room lacked extra toilet paper and a box of tissues, which would have been supplied had we asked. And we had to ask for a can/bottle opener, which was graciously supplied. I would stay again.

Room Tip: stay in the actual motor lodge. Other properties owned by the motor lodge have gotten mixed reviews...

We have just returned from a another wonderful winter trip to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. We again had a beautiful Jacuzzi Suite with a King Size Bed and a huge Flat Screen TV. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone coming to the area. It is only a very short drive to Lake Placid and so worth it! There are many restaurants within walking distance which makes it very convenient. The rooms have microwaves, refrigerators, and microwave ovens. We love it at the Sara Placid. Steve was a great host as always. Whenever we travel to the area we always stay at the Sara Placid. Give it a try if you haven't already the next time to are coming to the area. We highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great. Very comfortable and clean.

This place is very clean and very quite. The room looked freshly painted and the carpets appeared to be new as well. The bed was very comfortable. The only negative thing I could say is that I wish we had an extra pillow or two. That probably would have been rectified by a phone call though.

Thank you John for your comments on our rooms. As you have stated, extra pillows are not provided in the rooms, however, we would have provided you with extra ones, if you would have called the office. We hope to see you again in the near future. Steve/Owner

We have stayed in the 2 BR condo for a total of 7 nights on 2 visits with another couple. The location was perfect for our Columbus Day weekend paddling trip. We carried our kayaks across the street and were able to paddle several miles. We used it as our base for a President's week visit most recently. The unit is clean, comfortable and well kept. The kitchen is well equipped, making it easy to prepare meals. There's a gas grill outside with chairs along a pond and views of Mt. Baker. The living room easily seats 4 with a sofa and loveseat, and the dining table is a nice place to play games in the evening. Bathroom is adequate. It's an easy walk into town to see the Ice Palace, shops, restaurants and grocery stores. And daily housekeeping to boot! We especially appreciated the owner asking for our input as we checked out on what things may be needed or changes made to make the unit even better. Location is convenient to Lake Placid and its attractions. We brought a crock pot along to make meals even easier.

Room Tip: 2BR Condo unit is on the back of the building - away from all the road noise.
