I've stayed at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn on three or four occasions including my latest stay: four nights in late September, 2013. The rooms are very nice, always clean and in excellent condition. The prices are reasonable, and Steve (the owner) is very helpful with directions, suggestions, and general knowledge of the Saranac Lake area. The location on Lake Flower...

My father in law stayed at the Sara-Placid every fall, and was very pleased with it. This was our first time staying in a room there, and we will be back. Very comfortable, good customer service. Thanks!

Very pleasant owner(Steve) and very clean and quiet room. Good rates and beautiful scenery. I would go back if I'm in the area. Close to restaurant and stores. Saranac Lake is a beautiful town to visit and lots to do. Claude the Baker.

super clean (I have a thing about nasty floor, and germs). I always bring my own blankets but theirs were freshly washed. Kitchen was so cute, and even had supplies like pots , pans and plates and such if you wanted to cook there. A beautiful front area with gazebo and small pond, and across the street was Lake Flower....

So much more than I expected from, what appeared to be a simple roadside motel. We had a small kitchen unit and everything was supplied. The beds were supper comfortable and the cleanliness of the carpets were a welcome surprise after what has been experienced in other locations. Wifi excellent.

Good location for the winter carnival. Clean rooms with TV, kitchen etc. Owner is friendly and helpful and in site. This is handy for traveling locally and to Lake Placid and rates are better than most others.

A wonderful motel. Location was perfect for us - easy walking distance to Saranac village but away from the busy motel strip and boat launch closer to town. Motel is very well constructed - we experienced minimal noise from the road or neighbors. One of the best maintained and cleanest motels I've ever stayed at, and Steve the owner was...
