We felt fortunate to receive a very personable service from the owner Steve. We had 3 small children and were coming late Friday night. Steve stayed up waiting for us and also very thoughtfully heated up the cottage for us. You could not ask for more.
truly excellent service.

I've stayed at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn on three or four occasions including my latest stay: four nights in late September, 2013. The rooms are very nice, always clean and in excellent condition. The prices are reasonable, and Steve (the owner) is very helpful with directions, suggestions, and general knowledge of the Saranac Lake area. The location on Lake Flower Avenue is excellent: pretty views and sunsets over Lake Flower (which is directly across the street), convenient to town, restaurants, Mt. Baker, the Saranac Lakes, and ten minutes to Lake Placid. A big plus for me was that Steve offered the use of one of his kayaks, and I was able to paddle for about four hours on several of the lakes in the area. The Sara-Placid has been a great find and I always look forward to returning there.

My father in law stayed at the Sara-Placid every fall, and was very pleased with it. This was our first time staying in a room there, and we will be back. Very comfortable, good customer service. Thanks!

Very pleasant owner(Steve) and very clean and quiet room. Good rates and beautiful scenery. I would go back if I'm in the area. Close to restaurant and stores. Saranac Lake is a beautiful town to visit and lots to do. Claude the Baker.

super clean (I have a thing about nasty floor, and germs). I always bring my own blankets but theirs were freshly washed. Kitchen was so cute, and even had supplies like pots , pans and plates and such if you wanted to cook there. A beautiful front area with gazebo and small pond, and across the street was Lake Flower. And you can use their paddle boat, at no charge on the pond. The manager (owner?) was EXTREMELY gracious , parking right in front of your door, and just down the street is Town of Saranac Lake, and a few miles the other way is Lake Placid. We are weekend travelers with relatives in the mountains and I have found my new favorite place to stay when we are here. I usually only go for the larger hotels with a good reputation but this is definatly an exception.

Room Tip: any room is a pleasure
