“Not a pleasant experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Pool was not operational, Owner was not accommodating, seemed more concerned that we, 60yr old something customers would follow their rules, turned our heat down while we were away. Room smelled musty and shower drain did not function well. Room was clean otherwise.

I love staying in 60's era motels. Like many, this one shows some signs of its age. However, it is in generally good condition, very clean, quIet and close to the downtown. It sits right on lake, has a pool and outstanding views. Sitting outside having a late afternoon cocktail and looking at the lake was a real pleasure. The owner was very pleasant and responsive. She knows the area well.

Very nice motel, the rooms are incredibly clean and offer great view of Lake Flower. Kim, the owner made us feel welcome and at home. The staff and fantastic view make the Lake Flower Inn a great place to stay in the Tri- Lakes area

My son and I stayed at the Flower Lake Inn when he had a lacrosse tournament in Lake Placid. At first we were disappointed when we could get a room in Lake Placid but not anymore! The Flower Lake Inn met and exceeded our expectations! The place is meticulously clean. Yes, it's older vintage but it's a place to lay your head and get a good night sleep which I think would be very difficult in the hustle & bustle of LP. Our room and two full size beds, bathroom with roomy shower, desk, two comfortable chairs, TV and small refrigerator. The innkeeper, Kim, is what made our stay memorable. She is funny, attractive and attentive to patrons needs. I spent a couple of impromptu "happy hours" with her and a friend and a "chamber maid" and they were all delightful. The inn has a very nice pool which can't get much closer to Saranac Lake if you tried. My son and I used their complimentary canoe to paddle around the lake and we even stopped and got ice cream with the canoe. I also kayaked around the lake and used one of their several docks (although they are floating docks which makes getting into a kayak a challenge). The inn is within walking distance to several restaurants. We ate one night at Nonna Fina (I think that's the name) and had a wonderful meal. This inn will be my first choice in places to stay next time I'm in the area! Kim, you are the absolute best....thanks for making our trip all that more memorable!

Room Tip: There are a couple of rooms that face Saranac Lake. I think one of those rooms would be ideal!

Easy check in and out. Reasonably priced, clean rooms. Bed was comfortable. Located on shore of the lake. Great views. Has pool.
Can walk to restaurants or drive. Lake Placid is only 7 miles away if you want to go there.
Only negative is, drapes should be a little thicker to keep out light.
I would stay here anytime I'm in the area.

Very nice quiet motel on Flower Lake in the town of Saranec lake.Kim who owns and runs the resort by herself does a fantastic job. She is always very friendly and helpful with your needs. They have a pool, picnic tables, and canoes to use on the lake at no extra cost. You can fish from the docks. The rooms are very clean and quite large. Our room had a king size bed and windows overlooking the lake. The sunsets on the lake are beautiful. Kim recommended restaurants in the area that were fantastic. You're only 8 miles from Lake Placid. Its much more quiet staying in Saranec Lake than Lake Placid. Will definitely stay here again.

Quiet little motel with lakefront property. Well kept pool right next to the lake. Sit at the pool or along the shore next to the dock. Within walking distance (and I mean within a quarter mile) of several excellent restaurtants, an ice cream shop and boat rental. Downtown is an easy 1/2 mile walk.
Everything about the room is basic. It's like stepping back 30 years (well, we did have a refrigerator), but everything is well kept and in good working order. Also, the rooms are a little wider than your basic two bed room. The bathroom had pink and black tile :) and not a single one cracked or missing.
The innkeeper Kim is the jewel of this place. she is very personable and has a great sense of humor. She is so nice, If I were to go back to Saranac and stay anywhere else I would feel guilty.
