The proposed Lake Flower hotel development has several good things going for it. The project would consolidate three existing motel properties into one "spa and resort." It would give the three current motel owners a well-earned break by enabling them to sell their properties after decades of hard work operating and maintaining them. It would take advantage of the site by providing rooms in the village with a lake view. It would give Saranac Lake a better mix of lodgings and help attract more tourists and tourist dollars - especially in conjunction with the rebirth of the Hotel Saranac, our village centerpiece. It would benefit the existing, moderately priced motels by eliminating three traditional lodging places, making the remaining facilities more competitive in their price range.
