We've stayed here several times over the past year since our child goes to college in the area. We've never had a bad experience. We've found the staff to be very polite and helpful, the rooms and common areas to be clean and comfortable. Each time was very peaceful and quiet. Right at the edge of the village within close...

Not only was our rest amazing there is a swimming pool to help you relax as well as exercise. The staff were most helpful in directing us to interesting area experiences and they had apples for our snacking pleasure.

It was late at night and we were too tired to drive around. Found this on Priceline. When we got to it we realized there were other hotels on the water that may have been more interesting- right across the street. Otherwise it was fine. Clean, in good shape. Extremely quiet. Beds comfortable. No coffee in lobby but I got...

Stayed at the Best Western in Saranac Lake NY. It was very clean and comfortable and the rate was very reasonable. We didn't use the pool, but maybe next time we will! The people at the desk were very helpful.

Because I hail from Saranac Lake, I prefer to stay in town rather than in Lake Placid, where the selection of hotels is far superior. The Mountain Lake Best Western Inn, the only chain offered in town, is in an ideal location. It is on Lake Flower, minutes from the town center, on the edge of town with easy access...

This was a nice clean place to stay the 3rd leg of the Adirondack 90miler. It's less than a mile from the finish line. Free fruit and newspapers at the front desk. Great water pressure in the shower too!!! Many places to eat within walking distance or a short drive.

We stayed here while on a visit to Saranac Lake to ride the Rail Explorers Rail Cars. It's a standard chain hotel room. Very clean and quiet the entire weekend, despite being fully booked with several wedding groups there. Located on western edge of town - there is a sidewalk if you want to walk into town (maybe a 1/2...

We had been here twice in 2007 so I was confident we we're booking a good place to stay in Saranac Lake where hotel chains are scarce. The minute we walked into our room, it was bad! It smelled horribly musty. I'm allergic to mold, so within 15 mins my throat & chest were tight. I needed to get out!...

Last minute family jaunt resulted in a great stay, great dining recommendation, and no complaints whatsoever. Grounds are maintained, rooms appropriately modern...Hotel Impossible guy would have nothing do.

Stayed at the Best Western Mountain Lake Inn for several nights in August. Our room was very clean and comfortable, equipped with a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to come back in the future.
