“it was a great place to stay!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

the sara-placid motor inn in saranac lake n.y was a great experience! the room was very modern, really clean, and had a great bed. also it had all the extra stuff like a modern microwave, fridge, coffe maker,large flat screen t.v. the room was also located so to have a great view. all this at a very reasonable price! mr. steve hilbert, the owner, was very old school friendly and buisness like. he went the extra mile by allowing me to wash my harley electra glide around back ,and also supplied the hose, bucket, and some rags at no charge to me.this he did personally. wow! also he was a great person for his knowledge of the entire mountain area and was able to make some good suggestions as to whats going on .another cool thing is that steve has a great selection of old american classic cars that he parades out and parks out front for all to see. the grounds are very nicely manicured with two ponds and a grill and places to lounge and sit. also a good view of the lake. he is very convienient to all resturaunts, however not so much as to be in a tourist trap area. so, its nice and peaceful. my friend maureen was very glad the room came with a hair dryer and all the extra things that i described before. she was very comfortable. this is important to say because us guys tend to be less picky. lol. also, and i can't say enough, the location is a great place to feed from or all daily trips in the adirondacks. i will stay there again as soon as i can get away for another trip! thanks steve! tom and maureen.

Room Tip: the rooms were great!!!

We stayed here (four days so far and we check out the day after tomorrow) and everything was excellent. There is a nice gazebo in front to sit in. Steve, who owns and runs this motel, was a delight to chat with.

We have stayed at this Motor inn several times, but this stay was the best ever. The owner (Steve) upgraded our accomidations without us even asking, we were more than satisfied with the condo that we had booked, but he put us into a beautiful lake front apartment at the same low rate as the condo. I cannot say enough about the friendly service, super clean accomidations and reasonable prices. Take a look at thier web site, www.sara-placid.com. Quite honestly it is even nicer that it looks on the Web. Truly a "Gem" in the Adirondacks. Do yourself a favor, stay once with Steve and you will be a return guest for the rest of your life.

We stayed here this year for the winter carnival and it was a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were both clean and the beds were comfortable. Steve the owner was always on site and available and had the parking lot and sidewalks cleared on Saturday night and Sunday morning after they had about ten inches of fluffy snow. There was plenty of coffee available in the rooms. Since this visit was in the winter time we didn't get to walk around the property but will probably be back during the summer.

This was our second stay at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. We were drawn there by the jacuzzi suite, as we planned on a long day of cross country skiing before our stay. As with our prior visit (last winter after snowshoeing up Mt. Marcy), we were very satisfied. The motel is easy to pass by on the road, but the suite we stayed in offered a great value compared to similar rooms at higher end properties in the area. The Inn appears to be primarily owner-operated, and he was very pleasant and helpful.
