Best Western Saranac Lake
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Saranac Lake
Reviewed August 13, 2011

Well kept hotel large room - fridge and coffee maker in the room but no microwave. Newer TV with many channels and a large shallow in-door pool. No food in the hotel but an adjacent restaurant serves breakfast and lunch.

There's not really much to do in the area and we found our selves driving to lake placid each day.

We stayed here for 2 nights in August while we explored various lakes with our kayaks. We were looking for a hotel in a convenient location that would provide us a clean and quiet room from which we could keep an eye on our car/boats, and the Best Western delivered. Everyone at the front desk was friendly, helpful and efficient, and we never heard a noise from either the hallway or the outdoors once in our room. There is a busy Mexican restaurant next door that serves outside, and while the restaurant was quite busy the nights we were there, not a single sound infiltrated our room. An on-property restaurant serves breakfast until 2 PM, which was very helpful. Free wireless in the guest rooms is really appreciated. $200/night seems a little expensive for a no-frills stay but on the other hand it was exactly what we were looking for, and I am sure we'll stay at this Best Western the next time we return to the Adirondacks.

Our rooms were clean, fairly large and very comfortable...Pool was nice, but especially enjoyed the outdoor public deck, that was not busy at all...Sunbathed in private there and enjoyed drinks and conversation with some nice people. The staff was excellent and very accommadating...
The price is great for all you get...Restaurant owned by hotel is right next door within walking distance and is convenient.
Very close to Lake Placid also so commuted every day there...Would definately stay there again...Looking forward to next years family vacation there...

When querying about rates for a future stay, the manager / owner was rude to us because I called it a motel. he insists that it be called a hotel. Complete BS.

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.
