My husband and I have traveled to Lake Placid for many years but this is our first stay at High Peaks and it won't be our last. My experience started with a phone call with Alex the property representive. I had originally booked our stay at the Lake House but was concerned if this was the right location for us.... More

We went for 4 nights to the Lake Placid area to see the fall foliage. We needed a pet friendly hotel. This was perfect. We had a king bed and sofa bed for the kids- and there was still room for the crate. We stayed on the ground floor in their "Waterfront Collection"with access to the grounds/lakeside on Mirror lake-... More

This place was perfect for our mini winter getaway. The décor was rustic, modern. Views were incredible from the room and the great room. We enjoyed the fireplace, bar, pool area, and game room. Loved being in the center of town and able to enjoy all that it had to offer. We spent our days with relatively short outings of... More

Stayed here three nights and was very happy with it, we had a double-queen and it was a great room. The staff is very friendly, it feels like you're at a resort, not at a city hotel. Somehow left the car lights on overnight and the staff happily boosted us to get us going, terrific service! The food is great... More

We have been staying here as a family for a few years. You could not beat the happy hour after skiing. Now they purchased the motel next door and have pushed all of their specials over there. They told me this morning that the continental breakfast is over there. That would be fine if it was not thirty below. I... More

The hotel is in a great location, especially if you want to explore the downtown area. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Check in was quick and easy, however when I tried to get information about the area and attractions on Saturday the staff was not very helpful. However on Sunday the staff was very helpful. I...

Had a good time. I think there is room for improvement with the hotel front desk staff. They were polite and helpful but I think a little inexperienced-I booked a block of rooms, when I checked in my room was not ready but my friends' I was traveling with was, and they got an upgrade.

Rating the hotel a 3 isn't a knock in any way. I felt the High Peaks was perfectly adequate. It neither impressed nor disappointed me. It's what you'd expect for the money and the location is very good. You get what you pay for, and that's all I asked. Would stay again if visiting the area.
