We have stayed here before and returned here as we were going to be visiting friends and family. Easier this time to stay in a motel/hotel than with anyone. Next trip to Saranac Lake and we d stay here.

It's an old hotel, clean and quiet, with a nice, clean swimming pool. They do not provide breakfast, but there is a 10% discount at McKenzue's Grille, just across the parking lot. There was no coffee machine in the lobby. At $130/nite, it was centrally located and reasonably priced for the Adirondacks in July.

As usual, the Mountain Lake BEST WESTERN is like a vacation home. Friendly, clean and comfortable, close to good dining, pet friendly, and beautifully located. We always stay here when in the area, several times per year.

Our pet was allowed to stay, and go hiking and kayaking with us. We boarded our small dog for the day at Lakeside Veterinary Clinic while visiting the Wild Center. Very helpful, pleasant experience! It is much easier to take an active Yorkie along with us, for pets need fresh air, exercise as well. It is only natural to not...

This hotel is old and showing it's age the lobby is dark and feels dirty. The hotel does not offer any breakfast (not even a coffee in the lobby) the wi-fi is so bad I used my phone as a hot spot all evening. I would not stay hear and I would not recommend this hotel. It feels like you...

Everyone at this motel was nice and helpful. The rooms were tired and out dated. They were dull and dark but quiet. For $200 a night I would think there would be better maintained. Door from outside at parking lot was never locked at night.

even with discounts of AAA, AARP, price of room was to high for room quality and amenities Beds are of poor quality. you would think that they would offer a free continental breakfast. They want you to pay for it. Never saw this before

The girlfriend and I stayed here during a hiking trip in the High Peaks. The staff was friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about the town/region. The price was affordable and we got the AAA discount. The hotel and rooms were well maintained and very clean. Zero complaints. The location is within walking distance to everything in town; there are several restaurants...

First off I apologise for the length of this review, but I have a lot to say! We stayed here for four nights and chose this hotel as it was the best rated in the Saranac Lake area and at $90 per night seemed good value, especially compared to the nearby Lake Placid area. First off the location is excellent...

If you are confined to a wheelchair, the ADA rooms do not have a roll in shower. The back ramp that leads to the ADA rooms has a big crack in the concrete, all the way across, that a wheelchair could get stuck in. Other then those things, which the shower did not effect me because I am able to...
