10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very comfortable and convenient to everything and the terrace fire places are wonderful. Good for an evening. The Camp Fire restaurant is very accommodating for our grandchildren too.
Cons: The cushions on the terrace furniture were wet the first evening and then again in the morning. They should be put away each night and during rain. Also the music on the terrace though a nice touch should be background music but it was always too loud.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: It’s a historic hotel, so if you’re into a “vibe,” a great story comes with the place. The Hilton did a fabulous job with decor and touches. Incredibly comfortable bed.
Cons: The rooms are SMALL. You should only stay here if you’re doing active outdoor activities and you only care about a comfortable bed and hot shower. It’s quaint and lovely, but small.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Best Location in Saranac. Right on the water.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: It was the lowest cost place to stay. But as low as the untrue insults he delivered.
Cons: I told the evening lady who was a very gracious host after I saw the no pet notice, not obvious using my online booking. The next day , the owner was rude, pretentious, assumed I was trying pull some over, and accused me of being a cheats a liar and Canada already had a bad reputation and more . He was an incorrigible title supercilious good and made us leave immediately when he saw the pup outside walking around the bushes. I offered to leave the dog in the car and the clerk later said, she would make an except for the pup to stay with us. The owner has no sense of logic, customer service or any skill at handling situations, If I wanted to hide the pup, and do what he accused me of, why would I admit at check-in that we had a pup ( that was 4yrs old, well-behaved and non-shedding). I hope his anxiety and high blood pressure does not shorten his life-span but he made a potential nice visit into a a bad one. He is better to spend his life doing something other than this. In short he had a bad attitude.

4.3 Okay
Cons: Photos on website were NOTHING like our room. Very misleading. Decor was very dated, lots of dead bugs in the light globes, dead may fly on ceiling tile....for $250, very disappointed/irritated!!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Only 15 . minutes from lake placid, motel had a few kayaks to use at no charge and were able to launch kayaks right across the street, small beach to swim in nearby, staff was friendly and helpful, dog friendly, and really, really clean! It's an older Inn but so, very clean and that matters most!! Kitchenette had microwave, toaster, coffee maker and coffee, some utensils, plates, cups, small fridge, all the essentials. There was even a dog dish which came in handy... Ours broke when we unpacked.
Cons: Nothing we didn't like. It was a good place and we easily made it our home for a few days.
6.3 Good
Pros: The romm (king room) was large, and clean. The furnature is new and well maintained.
Cons: 1. For a large room like this, the bathroom was surprisingly and totally inadequate: it was too small, and the sink was the smallest you can find anywhere, the vanity was nonexistent, with no room for our toiletry; the bathtub was slippery and there was not even a handle bar inside for safety in such a slippery tub! 2. Given the cost they were willing to spend in the room for the new and very large TV and new AC and frige and microwave oven, I was also surprised that there was not a countertop place near the kitchen area for things. I tend to think these are things more essential for a traveler than a large screen TV set. 3. There was only one waste basket. Not a sigle sheet of tissue was found in the room. 4. Over all, I feel that the room's resources allocation was poor: large, empty space wasted while more necessary space (such as the sink) was given short change.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Way over priced for quality. We were in a luxury suite which was very basic. More like a motel with a flat screen tv.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Rooms are very simple but clean
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location. Friendly staff. Well stocked kitchen.
Cons: Hard pillows. Noisy fridge.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: There was nothing to like about this motel.
Cons: It is stuck in a 1970s time warp. The unit was very small, the sink was tiny, the bathroom was dirty and the bed was not very comfortable. There was a sand filled bucket at the entrance to the unit filled with old cigarette butts. It was expensive and very poor value for money.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a great stay. Pretty views of the lake and pond directly in front of your door. Seating outside everywhere. The inside of the rooms is clean! Comfortable bed and heat/ac was more then adequate. The staff was very nice and pleasant. With that said, the motor inn is exactly that. It is a step back in time. When people traveled in big cars and didn't run on big highways. Its late 1950's style in architecture was living history. I imagined 1950's and 60's car would pull in at any moment. Inside the rooms were updated and modern, lots of water pressure and hot water. Nice fridge and microwave with coffee maker. Bathroom was nice, hair dryer tub sink nicely done in tile. Flat screen tv with lots of channels. For the price you can't go wrong. Its not a luxury hotel, its a motor inn, from an era gone by. These great little places will someday be a thing of the past, but for now, I am glad to see a few nice places still exist. I would recommend this motor inn to anyone looking for a place to hang your hat for a few days. Enjoy the outdoors and everything this area has to offer, and come back to enjoy a quiet evening watching the water and enjoying your time.
Cons: Can't really say I didn't like something.
7.5 Good
Pros: The location
Cons: The lack of privacy within the room
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Second floor -- I'm 73 YO, Air conditioning -- not central, Bathroom -- spots on ceiling -- needs painting, TV -- no volume control on remote -- figured out how to adjust on TV itself, Price!

8.3 Excellent
Cons: The smell of clorox at the pool , it was too strong, it burns your eyes. But the rest was great, comfy rooms, clean place. Close to everything.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean comfy quiet rooms. Good communal areas pool etc. Nice sized indoor pool but with outside sitting area to enjoy in fine weather. Nice small area to the side of hotel to sit & enjoy the lake. Ample parking.
Cons: Would have been good to have either coffee making facilities in room or coffee available in the lobby. I believe the grill in the car park has free coffee to BW residents but that closes after lunch time.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice motel conveniently located.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: I had to pay in full and the cancellation policy at 60 days out is ludicrous. If you didn't cancel you forfeit the cost of the entire stay. I had a elderly relative and needed to go to her, I called at 59 days out, but I couldn't go to her because of this insane policy. I have traveled all over the world and never encountered this. They charged the price of a luxury hotel and it was a lower end dark room, no real lighting, with beds as hard as rocks, thin bed coverings. I've stayed in much better Best Westerns that is for sure.
5.5 Okay
Pros: McKenzies Cafe!’ We ate breakfast there twice
Cons: Housekeeping was horrible- did not clean, make up bed - left note she was not allowed t “to touch personal items” - there was one neck pillow on the bed. Did not empty room trash cans etc Gave manager “ high school housekeeper’s “ note!
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Clean, comfortable room, friendly staff.
Cons: Was a bit more expensive than I wanted, but it was a holiday weekend, so that was expected.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: good location. breakfast not included
9.5 Excellent
Pros: There was a lacrosse tournament in the area. There were several families with young athletes staying at the hotel. We were worried that they would be noisy. The staff chose our room carefully, and it was very quiet. We were very pleased!
Cons: Wish there had been breakfast on-site.
