Adirondack Motel
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Saranac Lake
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 September 2012

This may look like a left-over from the 50s but it's a terrific place to stay in Saranac Lake, being right on the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms are nicely updated. There's a small fridge if you're carrying things that should be cooled. There's a Keurig coffee maker in the office to provide morning coffee and wonderful muffins, by way of a continental breakfast. We'd stay here again, for sure.

Only able to spend one night at this quaint nicely renovated motel, but we really enjoyed the hospitality and the quaint room. Everything was perfect in this family owned motel. If you really want an experience, get the cabin.

The Mueller's have thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. From the very clean, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, drop-dead view, clear water for swimming and on-site water sport activites to the clean, healthy air, you can't find a nicer place to vacation. We return whenever possible-over 1300 miles!.

We enjoyed our stay in Mid August in Saranac Lake - Very clean & comfortable rooms and we got exactly what we were expecting. The kids enjoyed the dock and the water at lake Flower. We explored around the area (Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, Saranac Lake areas etc) and were glad to come back to a clean and comfortable room.
We would definately come back for another stay here.

The best! Here's why: Friendly and helpful staff, squeaky clean, economical, wonderful location, no-cost kayaking on the lake, walking distance to restaurants, and home-made breakfast muffins! If only we could have stayed longer. Thank you, dear Muellers.

We stayed at this motel for one night. Made the reservation in advance based on the other reviews here.
Everything is right - this place is awesome. Susan welcomed us with a smile and explained about this beautifull motel. The rooms are big and very clean. There is a huge flat tv screen with lots of channels. You can use their pedal boat for free or just sit in the 'loby' and read some of the books they have. The location of this motel + it's great price makes it ideal for people like us who didn't want to pay so much money for basic motel in lake placid. We had a great time!!!

The Muellers are wonderful hosts, and their thoughtful attention to detail shines throughout this lovely little motel: solid and sparkling bathroom fixtures; lovely camp decor that is just the right amount of camp; good coffee and muffins, various boating options (including a paddle boat for the young ones), and, best if all if you (like me) suffer from allergies----there is not a drop of damp, musty air in this whole place! Definitely a nice perch from which to explore the region. Only downside is a noisy road that loops around near the motel---not the quiet lakefront I was hoping for but not too bad either. The ease of a short walk to dinner, ice cream, and town made up for it. Great family destination!

Room Tip: Rooms 10 & 11 have direct lakefront views. If those aren't available, try for 8 or 9, which...
