“Very nice stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2008

I stayed at this very nice small motel for 2 nights recently. The inn owners were very nice folks and very helpful. The room was clean, with a beautiful view of the Lake. Lake Saranac is a nice little town. The weather was cold and snowy, quite a change for a Floridian! I'd recommend this reasonable motel.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in October. Since we towed our canoe, this was the perfect hotel for us because we could put in right at the lake practically at our doorstep. Everything we needed was a walk or a short drive away. The lake was beautiful to canoe on, and we did that twice. The room was great. I will agree with other reviewers that it wasn't quite soft enough for me, but I'm being picky (I've got a 4 inch memory foam topper at home, you can't beat that!) We loved the bathroom and the little stove and the fridge came in very handy for our snacks and leftover dinners. Lots of restaurants and shops are close by. The proprietors of this motel were super nice and helpful.

They have fresh coffee in the morning, and refills are $1.00. You use their personal pod machine for your coffee. They also offer hot chocolate and tea in the lobby, as well as freshly baked muffins for a snack in the morning. If you stay here, you have to meet "Adirondack Jack", their dog. He is a sweetheart! We played frisbee with him, and he was thrilled!

I would suggest going when it's a little warmer. October wasn't probably the best time we could have gone to NY, but we had a nice time here anyway!

  • Liked — It was clean, comfortable, and the property was well maintained.
  • Disliked — The bed.

Our family has enjoyed staying at the Adirondack Motel for years. The rooms are clean and well furnished, and the property offers a spot to relax on the edge of the lake, while being convenient to the village.

There is plenty to do at the motel, including fishing, swimming and kayaking. And, the location is a perfect "base camp" for enjoying area attractions.

Hospitality is exceptional. The owners, Fred and Susan, know the area well and can assist in planning outings. They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Basic clean motel rooms next to a small lake and very reasonably priced for the area. Very friendly, helpful staff. Great homemade muffins, and great wifi.

We stayed at the Adirondack Motel for three nights while we explored the Adirondack park. I enjoyed this motel very much. It was clean and the location was great; not far from the town and right on the lake. My daughter and I took out the paddle boat a couple of times and I also used the kayak they provide - quite fun and relaxing. Every morning we had our coffee and muffins (homemade and delicious) down at the lake front. I found the mattresses to be very comfortable and even noted the brand for future reference!!

My daughters also loved playing frisbee with the owner's dog, Jack.

One drawback were the curtains which were not room-darkening, which meant we were up early!! Also, the curtain on the back window covered the air conditioner which meant we had to keep that curtain open to get the air to flow through the room.

The motel was centrally located and we explored Lake Placid/Whiteface Mtn one day and the Wild Center in Tupper Lake the other day.

  • Liked — Location, relaxing atmosphere and homemade muffins
  • Disliked — Shades not room darkening

This is a nice; centrally located place to stay. The inn keepers were pleasant and accommodating and the room was very clean and cozy. If we ever find ourselves in this area in the future, we would definitely stay here again. We stayed for 2 nights only. August 6 & 7th. Also found a great place for dinner in Saranac. The Eat & Meet on Broadway street. Excellent as well.

  • Liked — It was clean and cozy and centrally located.
  • Disliked — I don't have anything negative to say about this place. Everything was just fine.
