A wonderful motel. Location was perfect for us - easy walking distance to Saranac village but away from the busy motel strip and boat launch closer to town. Motel is very well constructed - we experienced minimal noise from the road or neighbors. One of the best maintained and cleanest motels I've ever stayed at, and Steve the owner was exceptionally accommodating. Our kitchenette was large and very thoroughly stocked with cookware, etc. The lily pond on the property is beautiful and can be explored with the motel's paddle boat. Good breakfast just next door at McKenzies. Highly recommended!

For $180.00 they should give you the Raid can, They should tell you how many spider webs you'll come across. In fact they should make it a guessing game..if you guess right, you get a free night stay and this infested cob web festival resort. Listen, I don't rent a place and inspect it with a white glove- but we walked in, I had cob webs and spiders in EVERY SINGLES CORNER of the room..Yes it was a big room, yes the owner at the front desk was very polite - but I'm not paying for nice-ness - we're pretty easy going..We're traveling short trips through VT and NY upper state...with two little boys and we just wanted a clean room. He boasted about how impressed we would be and would love the room and stay another night...well as I write this, I'm here and I can't wait to pack and take off...Went to the Tops market for some food and water and saw a can of OFF bug spray repellent..I was a sign..I should have bought it...

Room Tip: go to Best Western just next door

We take great pride in maintaining the highest sanitation standards in all our rooms. A review of trip advisor reports will reflect that we are one of the top rated motels and we were awarded a certificate of excellence this year by trip advisor. Why would you wait until checkout the following day to report such problems. An inspection of your room was made immediately after your departure by one of our head housekeepers and myself, only a small amount of dust behind the headboard of one of the beds was noted. Furthermore no cobwebs or spiders were found anywhere in the room. However, we did observe a few spider webs on an outside light fixture and in a corner of an outside window. I assure you that any and all problems would have been dealt with immediately if they were reported in a timely fashion. Steve/Owner

On our vacation we decided to spend a night in Saranac Lake.On the way there we ended up with a flat tire.After a delay we finally ended up at Sara_Placid motor inn.The owner went out of his way to assist us in dealing with the flat tire.It is rare these days to come across a business owner who realizes how important customer service is.The rooms and the location were also very impressive and we would definitely stay there again,

Steve was extremely helpful, he recommended a restaurant for us and called them to make sure they were open. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. We will definately be staying here again. We found a new home away from home! The location and views made this place a very peaceful place.
