“A little slice of Heaven!!!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

I just stayed at this wonderful property last night. The owner, Steve let us stay at the Lake house and we had a great stay. Sara Placid Motor Inn has very reasonable rates and the owners go out of their way to make sure you have a relaxing and worry free stay. The room at the lake had two bedrooms, a kitchen, a large bathroom and a living room with two couches. The view from the dining room was superb. There was a dock and a tandem adirondack chair which was a nice place to watch the sunset. If you are looking for a fair price a nice clean room and very friendly owners look no further. I am bringing my wife with me on Labor Day weekend and I cant wait.

Room Tip: The Lake house is great, the water is calming and the view is outstanding.

Located on the Saranac Lake , this motel is far away from all the hustle and bustle of Lake placid .which is about a 15 minute drive from the hotel. We Stayed 3 nights and paid equivalent of what we would have paid for 1 night at some of the Chains. The Owner upgraded us to a room with Kitchenette without asking for an extra charge (Thank you).

The room was Spacious and had all the amenities in a standard room. I would highly recommend this place to budget minded travelers.

We have just returned from a wonderful winter trip to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. One of the highlights was our stay at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn in Saranac Lake. We always stay at Steve's place when we are in town as we know how wonderful the accommodations are there! We were not disappointed. We had a beautiful Jacuzzi Suite with a King Size Bed and a huge Flat Screen TV. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone coming to the area. It is only a very short drive to Lake Placid and so worth it! We write very few reviews but always take the time to write one for the Sara Placid.

On what would normally be a less than exciting experience while helping a friend drive for a visit to an institution, we found the most quaint and comfortable place called the Sara Placid Inn, first the cost is more than reasonable, but more is the actual room it has all the amenities to be self sufficient by being able to cook and store our meals, is extremely neat and clean and has staff who are very friendly and informative, when I called to reserve the room for our second visit we were remembered and accomodated, KUDOS to Mr Hilbert
PS - I got some of the best sleep ever!!!!!!!!!, and the air.....awesome !
