“Suprised!.”
Reviewed 16 October 2006

On arriving at this motel we were pleasantly suprised at the location, cleanliness and general good standard. The property is located about 8 miles from Lake Placid but similar motels were double the price in LP. The motel has an indoor pool, very pleasant reception area, friendly staff and best of all it has several other entrances adjacent to the car park which can be opened only with a room key which saves dragging luggage through the main front doors.

Even though it is located on a main road we had no disturbance from traffic noise, maybe because our room was at the rear of the property. There is a small restaurant located next to the premises which serves excellent breakfasts and lunches at very reasonable prices, open 6am to 2pm.

We intend to return to the area sometime and will have no hesitation in using this motel again.

Average. Yes good staff and they do what they can to keep it clean, but dated hotel. Hotel is a bit of a distance from the action in Lake Placid, not much to do in Saranac. Better off staying in Lake Placid. But once again nice helpful staff.

We stayed at this hotel with our hockey team for a fun weekend with the kids. We had a great time and the staff at the Mountain Lake hotel were fantastic. Easy to communicate with and very accommodating. If we visit the area again, we will stay at this hotel again for sure. Thanks to the staff.

Reviewed 29 October 2005

We checked into this motel in desperation after the other accommodation we'd booked ahead turned out to be shabby and dirty (more on this at a later date). The management was sympathetic, friendly, helpful and very informative about the area, more like an innkeeper than a motel desk manager. This is average, basic motel, but very clean, modern and comfortable. One small issue; couldn't rent a fridge for the room, they don't have them. There's some traffic noise, but not overwhelming, and not late at night during sleep hours.

For those on a budget, this is the best pick, maybe the only pick in this town.
