    This hotel was perfect for our overnight in Saranac Lake. The room was very clean and comfortable. While we were disappointed that breakfast wasn't offered at the hotel, there was a restaurant affliated with it that was steps from the hotel, very convenient!

    Although we experienced a couple of situations, such as a lumpy mattress that needed replacement, the front desk and cleaning staff was extremely responsive and very friendly, making the stay enjoyable.

    The staff was friendly, the facilities were clean, laundry facilities were onsite were a real blessing. We would stay there again without hesitation. It was quiet and the staff was very helpful. Checkin and Checkout were fast.

    Yes of course you can, although the water is still pretty chilly right now. It is actually snowing here right now! There is a great local beach at Lake Colby which is about two miles away from our hotel.
