We love, love, love this place. Right on the water you get to view the most awesome sunsets. There are boats available and you can paddle for miles and miles with gorgeous scenery. Old-school motel, but with upgrades. Pristinely clean. Sidewalks for walking to downtown. Very knowledgeable about local eateries and attractions. Just a short drive from Lake Placid, but...

We spent Labor Day weekend at Gauthier's Saranac Lake Inn and Hotel. For the price we paid, we thought we'd be getting a nice and luxurious room. What a disappointment this was, and it didn't even come close to our expectations for a reasonable place to stay. It was chilly in the room, so we decided to turn on the...

This was the most expensive hotel we stayed at on our road trip through NY state, and by far the worst. We stayed in room 36, right on the lake. Positives - lakeside location and lake view. Negatives - being charged for our room immediately on arrival with an added resort fee which hadn't been mentioned at the time of...

Great old school motel right on the lake with a gorgeous mountain view. Our room was small but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The windows were new and the bathroom was recently tiled. (Hope the navy blue carpet is next!) We dumped our bags, strapped on life vests and immediately pushed their canoe into the lake. Had a...

We really didn't spend that much time in our room - we were out adventuring but this place was perfect. There's no fridge but we had a cooler (of course!) If you can get a room ON the lake it's beautiful. We could see it from our porch and were happy with that but I'd vote lakeside if it's available....

Pics and reviews looked good so booked a deluxe room overlooking lake 4 mths in Advance as Oct is a busy time. Well where do I start..... Mgr showed us to our room, down a hill with luggage at back, not a great start. Then TV didn't work so had to call Him. He showed up to notice we had...

Pros: friendly manager; good location to travel to surrounding sights; clean; comfortable bed; balcony; refrigerator for keeping food; good working shower. Cons: Superior Queen Lakefront Room (#35) actually looked out on a dock full of boats, not the lake; the sliding glass door to the balcony had a broken lock, so was held shut by a piece of wood; not...

This is a basic "mom and pop" sort of motel. Nothing fancy – small bathrooms but clean and comfy beds. Parking seems to be an issue when they are full. Lovely lake views and a nice balcony overlooking the lake.

I do not feel that this room was worth the price. We got what we thought was a deal on one of the travel websites. It was a last minute trip and there was no time to research our options. The room was on the water with a nice view, but as we were staying only one night, we didn't...

We have passed this place many times & looked nice. When making reservations I booked a Deluxe Lakefront room. The room that we were given(57) was not lakefront and was actually like an underground side room. It was musty smelling and damp. The carpet by the door was constantly wet which I think was due to the moisture coming up...
