Reviewed 16 October 2013

Friendly staff, nice accomodations, girls used indoor pool which was clean and the water was warm. Bathrooms were fine - clean - basic. Beds were comfortable. Other guests were quiet and pleasant. That is about all I can think of, If the review needs to be longer I guess I can't think of anything else.

I forgot to say in my review that there is not an elevator in this hotel. Be sure and get a first floor room if you don't want to lug your luggage! This makes a big difference to us. None of the rooms has much view anyway as the hotel is not on the lake. McKenzies Restaurant is right next door but breakfast is not included. This is probably the best hotel on the lake, and Saranac Lake is a charming small town. Be sure and have dinner at Nonna Fina Restaurant , only a few blocks away.

We liked this location in a quiet area but close to downtown. Room was ok except for very lumpy pillows. This is high season so we were glad to have a nice room at a reasonable rate. It's not quite on Saranac Lake, just across the street, so no lake view. We belong to BW hotel club but did not very welcome. But we've stayed in "Worst Western" hotels in the past, so we were relieved that this hotel is ok. We didn't see a chain-type hotel right on Saranac Lake, which the town needs, so we didn't think we could have found anything better. We loved the town and would probably go back to this BW but cannot highly recommend it.

Spent 3 weeks touring the Eastern US and stayed in a number of Hotels, Motels and B&Bs, some of them very poor value and over rated. In comparison this Best Western, in my opinion was good value, clean and you what you are going to get - no surprises. The room was spacious, the staff friendly and helpful. Its in a very good location for Saranac - a beautiful spot.

Would we stay here again or recommend to friends - yes.

Room Tip: No lift and we had a background noise probably from the swimming pool extraction ?

We have stayed at several hotels in the Saranac and Lake Placid area in the past. We had to choose this hotel since other hotels in the area were fully booked for leaf looker season. The hotel lobby is nice and gives great hope that the rooms will also be. Unfortunately, the rooms are outdated and have a dirty smell to them. The carpets are frayed and the beds and linens are worn. The bathrooms are much in need of new grout and caulking. There are many other choices in the Saranac and Lake Placid area. Do yourself a favor and choose any other hotel.

The Service at this hotel is excellent and keeps us coming back! We have never had a bad experince with this hotel! The rooms are comfortable. To be honest the most important thing is the helpfulness of the staff . The pool is relaxing and the hotel is in close proximity to stores, Dunkin Donuts, Hospital and Paul Smith's College. The rooms are clean and someone takes pride in the appearance of the hotel, inside and out.
