Gauthier's Saranac Lake Inn, Saranac Lake
This is not a hotel, but rather motel. We payed all the amount in full through, however when we came we were asked to pay more "fee" for using kayaks and other staff, what we did later with great pleasure. However it is probably not very fair for those who do not use all inventory. The location is great, however the service was not as much. Our room had a strong gas smell. When we complained, we were told to open the windows for 20 minutes. It didn't help - even after 1 hour of waiting and intensively ventilating the room, it still had a strong smell of gas. After communication with owner we were transferred to other room.

Beautiful location- Room doesn't fit descriptions
When first walked down to our room, i was a bit surprise that it was considered a suite. It absolutely was just a room with a queen bed. We were in room 26. Not a Suite. Not sure i would have paid the extra money knowing what i know now. However, the room was clean and our room was on the corner with a better view than of just the marina. Need to clean bathroom much better though - mold is kinda gross. The room also includes boats but it was raining the next day so we didn't get to take advantage of that - but i would have made the stay even better. The only caution, I would mention, is to stay up a floor up higher if possible.. There were so many people walking by and boating by that you never felt at peace at night. it was a bit unsettling We paid over $189 with taxes a night - i am sure you could find better option for the price. (btw - they don't tell you the password to the wifi changes on Monday and the room phone does not work to call the front desk.)
