"Great location to Saranac Lake, clean, friendly staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We needed two nights accommodation (just a place to sleep) for a wedding in the area, this is not a "fancy" hotel, but served our needs quite well. .rates were very reasonable, our room and the hotel in general were clean, including indoor pool. The basic king size bed was comfortable, we appreciated the mini refrig. and coffee maker in our room, staff was friendly, there was a coin operated washer and dryer on our floor. We enjoyed the restaurant on the premises for breakfast. Very short drive to downtown Saranac Lake and lake/public access.
