This comfortable Saranac Lake hotel ensures that guests are only a few steps or a short drive away from dozens of must-see sites as well as outdoor recreational action.

Saranac Lake hotels boast one of the best locations in New York. The views of the Adirondack Mountains are unbeatable and geo-caching is a serious sport here. Why not take advantage of a comfortable Saranac Lake hotel that combines luxurious amenities with a very affordable price?

Unfortunately, not all Saranac Lake hotels are created equal. We boast the only indoor pool in Saranac Lake, so no matter what time of year it is, you can get in a quick dip. Close proximity to Lake Placid and Olympic venues are just part of the appeal. Were also within walking distance of restaurants, boat rentals and guide services.

Most guests flock to our Saranac Lake hotel to get up close and personal with Mother Nature. The unbelievable fall foliage, hiking, golf and snowmobiling opportunities are unlike anything youve experienced before. Spend the day practicing your photography skills. Take a hike and breathe in that mountain air. Discover the adrenaline-packed adventure of snowmobiling with Jack Frost.

Since were eight miles from downtown Lake Placid, our Saranac Lake hotel can offer lower rates than competitors. Plenty of business travelers call our rooms their second home. Employees from Adirondack Medical Center, Paul Smiths College, Adirondack Regional Airport, and NYS State Offices like the State Police, DEC and APA are just a few of our frequent guests.

The perks here are limitless. Free Wi-Fi is standard. We have complimentary newspapers on the desk each morning. Our restaurant, McKenzies Grille located just outside the lobby, serves reasonably priced breakfast and lunch daily from 7:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep------"

Arrived white-knuckled after a perilous journey thru some snow, but the front office greeted us with much warmth. Parking was easy and close to rooms. The room was large and very clean. Beds were c... more

21/02/2018 tamyl4, Middleburgh, New York

The room was really clean, but as a disabled person I had real needs and when we ask for something and we do not get it and pay the same price that is annoying and upsetting to say the least. We aske... more

Owner Response
Kevin M, Front Office Manager at Best Western Saranac Lake, responded to this review
Hello Ms. Larson, I am very sorry about the troubles that you encountered during your stay. I would like to address as many of your concerns as possible right now. I know that I am personally responsible for changing your room type from the King Bed on the first floor to the pet-friendly room with two queen-sized beds on the first floor. I can assure you that all of our rooms here at the Best Western Saranac Lake are the same size in area with the exception of 4 rooms (two upstairs and two downstairs) which have ever so slightly more square footage(10 more square feet per room). I apologize if this room move to a pet friendly room negatively impacted you in any way and I can assure you that was not my intent. Had I seen that you had reserved a handicap accessible room and had the Service Dog with you then I most certainly would not have made any changes to the room type, however, whenever possible we do like to keep pets in only certain rooms to prevent against having people who are very sensitive to pet dander from being exposed and having adverse reactions when staying in our non pet-friendly rooms. I was here for your arrival and if I had been made aware of any concerns you had from a physical standpoint I would have been happy to address them and do our best to accommodate your every need. I know that we were at very high capacity and that none of our handicap accessible rooms were available on Sunday, however we would have certainly brought you a tub chair or bench and we would have done anything in our power to assist you with getting to and from your vehicle to the room and back. We were not made aware of these concerns until now. Our high level of occupancy could have also accounted for the lack of handicapped parking spaces available near your room. Concerning the walkway at door B, I can assure you that keeping our walkways salted and shoveled and free from ice and snow in the winter time is of the utmost importance to us and we actively address all of our walkways on multiple time a day basis throughout the winter months. I am very sorry for the experience you had here at our hotel but to say that we discriminated against you is just not accurate and that is not something we would ever do here. I would be happy to offer you a 50% off a one night stay or a free night on any 3+ night booking with us in the future and hopefully we can show you a much more hospitable stay and do more to accommodate all of your needs. We do take our level of service very seriously here and I apologize for not going above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you do consider staying with us again and would like to utilize the discounts offered, give us a call at the hotel directly and you can speak with me personally. Again, my sincerest apologies and hopefully we can show you that we can do a better job in the future and now that we know the concerns you have we can address them all beforehand and ensure that all of your needs are met.
