Best Western Saranac Lake
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Saranac Lake
Reviewed June 10, 2011

We had a recent one night stay at the Best Western. It was pretty much as I had anticipated. It’s your basic motel room with 2 queen sized beds. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The room was a little stuffy when we arrived, but after the AC was turned on it was fine. The room also had a small refrigerator available to use, although we didn’t have a need. I found it to be a very quiet stay. No banging of doors or loud guests in the hallways. It is also very conveniently located to several restaurants and grocery stores - most within walking distance.

The only problem I saw was the “security” door B that we went in/out of in the back. While we were told at the desk that our room key would operate the door, the door never seemed to actually be locked as we went in/out. Unless it only locks during the overnight hours. I probably should have mentioned this as I checked out, but it slipped my mind.

We stayed in January with a Hockey Team. Hotel staff was 100% great, especially front desk staff. Hotel was clean and everything was in order. Pool was clean also. At checkout there was a sign that said pool closed for renovations. When I commented that we had got there just in time to use the pool the guy replied that they kept it open just long enough for our stay because he knew we had a lot of kids that would want to use it. That is customer service above and beyond. Internet was free and worked great in the 2 areas of the hotel that I used it in.

Pleasant and no frills. Nothing spectacular but good value for the money.

It is across the street fron the lake, but didn't have a view. Typical motel room, a little roomier than some. It was clean and had an indoor pool. Very adequate for one night. It didn't include breakfast, though.
Very close to Lake Placid where there is a huge selection of nice restaurants and shops.

This is a nice well maintained motel only 10 minutes from Lake Placid. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms good size and clean. I would recommend this place and would stay here again. The McKenzie's Grill out front serves a good breakfast also.
The only thing is they DON'T serve a complimentary breakfast. They DO have free apples all the time for the taking.

Traveling around upper NY and Canada. Stayed here to visit Lake Placid. The room was very musty smelling and the air conditioner was very dusty and looked like mold growing in it. The bath had mildew on the ceiling tiles. Was not very happy but only staying one night so made the best of it. The staff however was friendly. Would not recommend it, sorry.

I stayed with a basketball team of 10 high school girls. The staff was helpful and friendly, making us all feel welcome. The free apples at check-in were a hit with a bunch of tired players. The rooms were nothing special, but they were clean and the a.c. worked well. The desk staff really is the best part of the hotel, offering directions, services and helpful advice. I would recommend it for conferences or group travel.
