Room somewhat disappointing...only average in quality and size. Bathroom tiny...only blinds across window for privacy from those walking by the room. Different water equipment on edge of lake hindering part of the view of lake from the room. Had much difficulty opening the door to the room using an old fashioned key.

Stayed: September 2018, travelled solo

Our room was steps away from the water. Beautiful views. Lady at front desk was very accommodating, took us for a tour to our room and explained all the added amenities. Small amenity fee included in your stay, includes access to canoes, SUPs, fishing poles, tennis rackets, etc.
There is a pool available.
Walking distance to many restaurants.
Room was clean and spacious.

2nd stay for us. Dan, the owner,& staff, did an excellent, friendly job in rectifying a last minute room change, providing a win-win situation. Kayaks, paddle boats, boards , canoes and bikes provided for free, along with a clean pool, tennis rackets, etc! Within an easy scenic walk to the village. McKenzie's provides discounted meals right across the street.The rooms are being updated, which is needed, and is the only reason not to rate it a 5!
Hope to visit, again!
PS: Elvis is outside the building!

Simply - we had few great days in Saranac Lake. Owner was friendly, rooms were clean. Free use of kayaks, bicycles, etc. Made great use of the pool - which was wonderful. While it is a small establishment, everything was as expected. There was a restaurant located right across the street for breakfast.

This is a treasure, and a real blast from the past: an old-style motor hotel right on Saranac Lake where the room rate includes free access to plenty of kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and a clean pool. The family that own the motel are unfailingly pleasant and helpful and answer questions and offer recommendations and local background if asked. The entire experience was peaceful and relaxing and the beautiful surroundings and friendly ambiance seem to put everyone in a good frame of mind. Some aspects of the rooms are a bit worn, but that's to be expected for a motel of this vintage.

Room Tip: Not all rooms seem to have a lake view. Some of the lower-level rooms are a bit damp, but it's on a lake after all.
