We have been guests at Sara-Placid numerous times, and it remains our preferred Saranac Lake motel. The rooms are large, beds are comfortable, the refrigerator and microwave handy to have. And, it is extremely clean. Paddleboats are there for the use by guests. Additionally, it is is quick walk up the road for supplies and restaurants. We highly recommend Sara-Placid,...

We recently stayed at the SaraPlacid Motor Inn and were very pleased with our room, which had views of a pond and Lake Flower. The owner is wonderful - very friendly, kind and helpful. The motel is located close to a few restaurants and supermarkets.

Don't be fooled by the title, "Motor Inn", or the look of the motel from the outside. We expected the inside to be cramped and dark with dark faux-wood paneling. On the contrary. The room was spacious - we were able to bring our tandem bike inside and easily (and carefully, to keep the walls and room clean!) put it...

The owner was great! Very friendly and informative. Clean room, comfortable bed and we did not hear the road noise, even though its right on the main highway. Gazebo and chairs are very nice. We walked across the street and enjoyed a dock on the lake. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance also. We would definitely stay here again!

This really is a very good motel; well managed and maintained, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Although it is just off quite a busy road, we were not disturbed by traffic noise and it was especially lovely to be able to sit and relax beside the lake. There is a good place for breakfast five minutes walk from the motel....

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening in Saranac Lake and rested comfortably at the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. The room was very clean, motel was quiet and wifi was much appreciated.

Definitely a wonderful motel! Over a year ago while visiting family in Saranac Lake that instead of the motel/hotel where we would generally stay, it was suggested we try the Sara-Placid Motor Inn. We are very happy that we gave it a try. We just recently spent another long weekend in the area and stayed our second time at the...

We wanted to spend our vacation climbing the High Peaks and exploring the lakes and nearby towns. There is no better place than the Sara-Placid Motor Inn to stay while accomplishing these goals. Firstly, the Sara-Placid is clean and comfortable. The sheets were soft and the pillows were plump. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and we never wanted for...
