Reviewed 26 October 2016

Convenient location, clean and reasonably priced. I was there for work, so it was just a short stay. Friendly desk staff. I had a king room which had a nice seating area. I appreciated having a microwave and a fridge in the room, but still would have preferred some breakfast on-site. Good wifi. No complaints.

This hotel was perfect for our group to stay. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly and willing to help. Just a few minutes from Lake Placid and it was great! The hotel was very accommodating for our group and had a space for us to gather.

Stayed at Saranac Best Western for 2 nights. Very reasonable,quiet and comfortable. Just a few minutes from Lake Placid. Bed was comfortable, nice shower and indoor pool. I agree the only thing lacking was breakfast. I would highly recommend Blue Moon Cafe a couple blocks away, wow, cool little restaurant that serves amazing breakfast!

Staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and roomy with comfortable beds. My sister and I were traveling around upstate NY and this was our only stay that provided a guest laundry which was most appreciated. It is wonderful to be able to wash our hiking clothes and a couple of new items we had purchased there...

Hotel was clean and updated. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast was perfect for what I desired to have and convenient even though the restaurant is outside. I had a very good experience and would stay at this hotel again if I do return to the area.

This motel had a great location with several restaurants in walking distance. The staff was polite and efficient. The internet was slow when guests were abundant. There was no smoking inside but too many smokers by outside entrance- had to "wade through" smoke to get inside.
