We are a family from Montreal with a 2 children (12 yr old boy and 10 yr old girl) that is used to staying at nice places. We were interested in this place initially because it said it had access to the lake (which it does) and it has 3 pools (2 outdoors and one indoors). It also was close... More

I visit Lake Placid for a conference every January and a romantic getaway with my wife every August. The rooms are clean, and the two queen sized beds are very comfortable. They have an incredible lobby with a fire place. This hotel is located in the middle of the town and everything is just so accessible. We usually get a... More

Have stayed here twice on business now. I will stay here again as it's "known" to me, but am not blown away by the service. Front desk staff were just not friendly - at check in, one woman began checking me in, but apparently she had other more important things to do as without a word she handed me off... More
