Best Western Saranac Lake

Reviewed 6 July 2014

Bill at the front desk went above and beyond the call of duty in assisting with my check in. I lost my wallet and he still treated me as a valued customer. I will return and stay again just for that reason alone.

This was the nicest Best Western I've stayed in.

Located across the street from the lake, it was about a 20 min walk into the downtown core where we explored before having dinner. The front desk staff were friendly an helpful upon check in. The common areas are clean (if a bit dated). The room was very clean and quite large for two people with a desk and a spacious entry way with two luggage racks provided and plenty of room to hang clothes. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and I slept well after a long day on the back of a motorcycle.

When I first walked in the room and realized I was overlooking the courtyard with no view I was a little disappointed. Until I realized that it mean we could sleep with the window open. Waking up to fresh mountain air and birds singing was a huge treat for this city living, high rise condo dweller.

The coffee in the room was awful but easy to overlook when considering all of the positives.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

This is a quiet, clean hotel. The rates are very competitive to surrounding hotels. The staff is friendly and courteous and always helpful. They are prompt and professional on the phone and in person. I have stayed here on and off for many years and they keep the hotel upgraded and in good repair.

We chose this hotel for a wedding we were attending in Lake Placid. We were extremely pleased with the service, the room, and the cleanliness of the room. The location is easy access to many sites and not far from Lake Placid, plus the rates were more reasonable so we could still enjoy doing the things we wanted to do. Again the bedding and the bathrooms were immaculate.

We were surprised with the quality of this hotel. It was terrific and, since we traveled outside tourist times, very inexpensive. The place was so nice we changed a planned one night stay to two nights. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was spotless, and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located on the main road between Saranac and Lake Placid (a route we learned well).

We got a very good deal here as it was just before the busy summer season begins. The motel was very clean with a decent setting for being right off the main highway. The staff was very friendly and the room good size. The only minor complaint was the small bathroom, but it really wasn't a big deal. We also enjoyed breakfast at McKenzie's Grille which is on the same property.

Stayed one weeknight in June, 2014. Hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. Lots of amenities close by. Good value. Would recommend if you're looking for a place to stay that's convenient and cost effective.
