Joe & Edie really made great efforts to make all of us in a large group comfortable. There were great touches to make our stay pleasant. They were also very good at giving local info. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Very much a place I would gladly come back to for another stay!

The cozy motel, within easy walking distance of coffee shops and downtown businesses was well suited to our personal and professional needs.

We just returned from a ski vacation in the Adirondacks, and had the pleasure of staying two nights at Amanda's Village. Friends had recommended the place, and we found that it lived up to its billing. The owners Joe and Edie were wonderful hosts: Joe brews up his favorite Western New York roast coffee for guests every morning, and Edie makes sure that the rooms are equipped with everything you need.

The heat in the rooms is great for a motel. Even though the outdoor temperature went down to minus twenty that last evening, we were snug and warm the whole time.

This is a quant little Motel with several small rooms and one or more lockoffs. Our room was clean, comfortable, very quiet, even though we were right on a main drag. Seemed well insulated. Several rooms are located in a second building behind the first with a circular driveway in between. Owners are very nice and personable. Almost like going home to Mom and Dad's for a stay! We only stayed one night, but I would definitely return for a longer stay!

Room Tip: It appears most rooms have two full size beds, not sure. Ownerr didmention a lockoff wiht two queen...

I will make my review short and sweet, as the motel has many positive reviews and that's OK!
This was my 1st visit to Saranac Lake, and I may not be familiar with prices in that town. The owners seemed to be very pleasant and helpful, but I was shocked at the price. We checked in midweek, and out of season. We had a double bed, which was $90 for the night!!! I certainly couldn't afford to stay for a week! So anyone more familiar with prices in the Adirondacks - just ignore me!!

Edie and Joe, the owners, are extremely nice people. They had coffee available each morning in the office and were always available if you had a question. They even gave us some dining recommendations.

The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had the 2 room unit that had a bath in between that worked out great for our family of 4. The first room had a bed, dresser, tv and dorm size refrigerator and window air conditioning unit. The second room had another bed and dresser. In between was a bathroom with a shower and commode. Each room had their own closet and sink with storage underneath, mirror and light. We even had nightlights.

Location is fantastic - very easy to get around and right across from Flower Lake.

I would not hesitate to recommend them or stay with them again when we are in the area!

Room Tip: Joe and Edie will give you a recommendation based on your party size.

Our family recently stayed for two nights at Amanda's and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the accommodations are. While some of the exterior has been weathered by the Adirondack winters, the rooms were bright, ultra clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The owners made us feel like family when they welcomed us to their property. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again on our next visit to the Lake Placid/Saranac Lake area.
