Best Western Saranac Lake
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Saranac Lake
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We stayed at the motel for two days and took two rooms for our family. Making the reservations was easy by the internet and when we arrived all went well and they handled our arrival which was by two cars and six hours apart just fine.

The staff was friendly and competent, they had excellent hand outs for the restaurants in the area and suggested other area features as well.

The rooms were what we wanted, clean, warm, and everything in the room worked.

The Grille next door provided an encellent breakfast.

Check out was also easy and friendly.

Room Tip: Just ask for any special requirements. We needed first floor and there was no problem, we wanted th...

Can't really go wrong with a Best Western. Friendly staff. Clean room. Front desk was on top of salting a back entrance when we told them it was very icy. Appreciated the refrigerator and had McKenzie Grille right out side the door for a Great breakfast and a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Walk up to second floor, but just staying a couple of days we didn't have much to carry up. Two...

Staff was friendly for the check-in. Rooms are spacious but uninspired. Refrigerator was turned off; coffee machine is in the bathroom (?). Free wifi, no breakfast. Overall what was expected when chosing a best western, a safe but boring choice.

Front desk staff was not the most pleasant and the hotel showed its fair share of wear. The room was clean but exceptionally noisy between the plumbing and heating- and the walls didn't seem to have any noise proofing in them. The pillows - while they gave you tons of them- were thin and it was difficult to get comfortable in bed. Since we don't know the area, we don't know if this place is on par with the quality of the area. Meh.

I read the reviews for the hotel and noted that almost all the bad reviews were several years old. The only recent one was from someone who lives in Saranac Lake(?) The person at the desk at check-in was excellent, provided us with local information sheets for activities and dining. The room itself was spacious and very clean. We stayed there 5 nights and even though we had a room close to the road did not hear any traffic noise until Saturday - it is hard to keep a motorcycle quite when doing 30mph.
Each day the room was excently cleaned. The only thing which I could complain about was that one day the maid forgot to empty one of the rubbish bins. Though, the pillows on the bed were a little overdone for a hotel at this level.

Under $100 with 'AAA' memership this is superb value for the Adirondacks. The front desk staff are very friendly and knowledgable. While there is not an extensive selection of room styles, the king bed we slept on was very comfortable and firm. They also have updated some rooms with flat screen TVs.

The one drawback is there is no restaurant in hotel, but we enjoy eating out in town anyway to get a better experience of the town.
