“Amanda's Village Motel”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

I will make my review short and sweet, as the motel has many positive reviews and that's OK!
This was my 1st visit to Saranac Lake, and I may not be familiar with prices in that town. The owners seemed to be very pleasant and helpful, but I was shocked at the price. We checked in midweek, and out of season. We had a double bed, which was $90 for the night!!! I certainly couldn't afford to stay for a week! So anyone more familiar with prices in the Adirondacks - just ignore me!!

Edie and Joe, the owners, are extremely nice people. They had coffee available each morning in the office and were always available if you had a question. They even gave us some dining recommendations.

The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had the 2 room unit that had a bath in between that worked out great for our family of 4. The first room had a bed, dresser, tv and dorm size refrigerator and window air conditioning unit. The second room had another bed and dresser. In between was a bathroom with a shower and commode. Each room had their own closet and sink with storage underneath, mirror and light. We even had nightlights.

Location is fantastic - very easy to get around and right across from Flower Lake.

I would not hesitate to recommend them or stay with them again when we are in the area!

Room Tip: Joe and Edie will give you a recommendation based on your party size.

Our family recently stayed for two nights at Amanda's and were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the accommodations are. While some of the exterior has been weathered by the Adirondack winters, the rooms were bright, ultra clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The owners made us feel like family when they welcomed us to their property. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again on our next visit to the Lake Placid/Saranac Lake area.

Owners are almost like B&B hosts: gregarious and outgoing. Joe is especially chatty. Property is old-fashioned and nice. Our room was dark but well-kept. Mattress a little soft for my tastes. Mini-fridge in room. Protected wi-fi available. Alarm clock affixed to top of TV, so in the morning there’s no simply reaching out to silence it! Only available electrical outlet (bedsides the one used by fridge and air conditioner) could not accept three-prong plugs. Water in bathroom not very hot. Property is across the road from lake; partial view from our room but crossing road sometimes chancy (no pedestrian crosswalk). Reasonably priced for the area.

Amanda's offers a reasonable rate for a clean nicely appointed room. It's a great jump off point for the Saranac Lake/Lake Placid area. The owners are friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We will stay at Amanda's any time we are in the area.
