Overview Reviews
Welcome to the reimagined Hotel Saranac, Curio Collection by Hilton. An iconic landmark in the Saranac Lake village, the hotel has been thoughtfully renovated while maintaining its historic charm and fascinating architecture – including the Great Hall, inspired by a 14th-century Italian palace. Adventure and natural beauty await in the surrounding mountains and wilds of the Adirondacks, and the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle and cruiser bicycles to get guests on their way. Guest rooms mix past and present with crown molding, quartz vanities, a 55-inch Smart TV and complimentary WiFi. Upgrade for more space, settee sofa and a work desk or choose a suite with a private bedroom, mini-fridge, and a second Smart TV. Our adjoining Compass Point Building offers premium suites with a wet bar, sofa sleeper and a dining area – perfect for wedding parties and family events. Visit our Campfire restaurant for ‘Adirondacks-to-table’ comfort food, or enjoy cocktails and a speakeasy vibe at the Great Hall Bar. The Terrace is a cozy outdoor spot to savor mountain views and a crackling fire pit. Indulge in a massage or pedicure at Ampersand Spa & Salon, or work out in the fitness center. Kids will love special welcome gifts and the shuffle board table, and Academy & Main boutique has sweets and souvenirs for everyone. Plan a meeting or celebration at Hotel Saranac with over 6,000 sq. ft. of versatile event space, including modern boardrooms and a historic grand ballroom.

8.4 Excellent (708 reviews)
Overview Reviews
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. We're 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 you've 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 we're 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 Smith's 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, McKenzie's Grille located just outside the lobby, serves reasonably priced breakfast and lunch daily from 6:00am-2:00pm. Book a stay with Best Western® Saranac Lake and find out what your beauty-laden trip has in store! Pets are allowed only in rooms described as pet friendly in the room description.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beds are comfortable and clean. Its roomy.
1.0 Poor
Pros: the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was clean except for the air vent. The staff was exceptional! When I checked out, Executive Manager Charles was kind, compassionate, friendly and understanding when I spoke with him about my complaints( per the suggestion of night staff after their attempts at helping with the noise level). He educated me on the fact that I reserved my room online and that if I had called them directly, they would have advised that the hotel was almost completely full with the child hockey team. He was more than generous with compensating me for the disturbing stay and also advised me of the upcoming dates when the hotel expects more hockey teams to be staying there. Due to the staff, I would highly recommend this hotel and ai would return to stay, booking directly to be informed about of groups were expected to be staying.
Cons: The noise level of the elementary school age hockey players and their partying parents was unbearable and impacted my entire stay from 4:00 pm-10:00 pm and then resumed again at 6:30 a.m. Although staff was incredibly polite and responsive, the noise level of the hockey folk did not decrease.
