Best Western Saranac Lake

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Comfortable and warm though cold and rainy outside. We use Best Western when we travel. We have always liked the breakfast feature of The Best Western. We were a bit disappointed that there was no breakfast as part of the daily rate; however, a restaurant in front, McKenzie's was exceptional and open for early morning breakfast and lunch. This hotel was a nice spring board for our daily walks into Saranac Lake and our walking around Flower Lake.

The hotel offers a very nice handout about local events and sites. The scenic drive they recommend is very nice. Casa del Sol is an excellent Mexican restaurant just steps away from the hotel.

Disappointed no elevator and room on second floor. Need to read fine print a little better because I expected breakfast after the lovely breakfast at the Best Western In Saratoga Springs the night before

We were checked in early by friendly staff. The room was spacious and well-appointed, with ferfidgerator, microwave and a sofa in addition to a comfortable king size bed. Vriews of the lake from our window. Large, heated indoor pool.

Quick get away. Close to Lake Clear and Lake Placid. Right next door to our favorite restaurant.

King bed was extremely comfortable! Kiddos had a hard time sleeping on pull out sofa and cot. I thought I was helping them out so they didn't share a bed but they said they were extremely uncomfortable (and these are kids who can sleep on the ground camping). Room was great (TV was small). Shower was hot and great pressure, pool was good, and staff was awesome. Our room was ready by 11 and they told us we could come whenever we were ready. Saranac Lake is a much calmer, quieter town to stay in compared to Lake Placid. Also, 10% off meals at restaurant next door. Breakfast was delicious.

very nice hotel. My son enjoyed the pool and the meal at the restaurant next door was excellent.

Excellent facility in a beautiful location. Worth the detour off a main route to get to it.

Did not want to stay in the hub bub (and expense) of Lake Placid for business. This hotel was an amazing compromise. A quick 7 minute drive to the conference and convenient 5 minute walk to 2 very fine eateries.

Everything about our stay was great. The indoor pool was the first thing on our agenda after 5 hrs. on the road. The room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone.

This was close enough to Lake Placid to see the sights but not be caught up with all the tourists and families who stay for hockey tournaments. It was very peaceful and close to restaurants that were not crowded. Would love to come back in the summer or winter again and be able to hike or ski.

Nice place to stay. It had everything we were looking for except an elevator.

Such an ideal area of beauty and small town atmoshpere. The restaurant on site was so homey and the staff treated you like family. The hotel was clean and inviting, will surely stay there again.

Comfortable, clean and updated room. Very friendly service. Great location to visit Lake Placid.

very nice

The Best Western Mountain Lake Inn was just right! The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. We enjoyed the indoor pool. We also liked the fact that it was close to everything. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. Also most important it was very clean.
