Stayed in 702 the Waterfront. Yes it does face the pool equipment but it was not a issue as we had privacy we wanted. Room is very clean and beds were very comfortable. Love the location and accessibility to shopping and dining. We go to LA frequently and always stay at High Peaks

We spent one night in room 701 in the so-called waterfront rooms of the resort. The room was like one long narrow cave, with a sliding door that opened upon to the pool equipment storage shed. The lake was beyond the shed, but we could have had just as great a view if it was a brick wall. The bed... More

My wife and I were on a motorcycle trip and stayed here for a couple of nights. The staff were very helpful, ensuring that we were aware of the secure underground parking for our bikes. A simple question at the front desk, after we'd cleaned up, resulted in multiple options on things to do, places to eat, as well as... More

I think this must have been an ordinary hotel in its past, but when it was re-done, someone used a little creativity, and the place seems one step up from ordinary. My 13 year old daughter was convinced we were in a really fancy hotel. The rooms we stayed in was a good size, with a balcony (with chairs and... More

We stayed in the lakeside part of the hotel under a parking lot. The room was okay, but the lake view was blocked by the pool. Coffee is available across the street but there should a coffee station in this part of the hotel. Nothing special but okay if you can get a good price.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for sharing your experience about your stay and room at High Peaks Resort. Thank you also for the excellent suggestion to have a coffee station across at our Waterfront collection building, where we have room as well as more commodious suites and junior suites directly on, and in some cases over the water.

I do have one of the advertised views, unlike the last reviewer. I was looking for a place to stay for one month with my dog. You would think the 4th floor would be a disaster for a large dog. But the hotel is built on a vertical, so you walk outside the door to the 4th floor parking lot.... More

We spent two nights at the High Peaks resort last week and it was a mixed experience. The room was clean and large with two comfortable queen beds, nicely decorated and looked like it had recently been renovated. Ditto the bathroom. However, the hotel is not in an ideal location being located on the corner of a very busy intersection.... More

We visited in July of 2014. I was expecting a hotel, but this is a large resort! The lobby and rooms were lovely. The pools were beautiful and clean. The complimentary kayaks and paddleboats by the lake were great. The location is right on the main street, but at the end of the hustle-bustle part of town, so it's not... More

We had a wedding reception here and stayed the first weekend in July. Everything was perfect. This an updated upscale resort with employees who care about their guests. Everyone in our family was happy with there stay and the rooms and restaurant at the resort. Truly a Resort experience for a reasonable price.

I think we got the last available hotel room Lake Placid over the Iron Man weekend, but were we glad to stay HPR!
