My significant other and I stayed here for a ski + stay package and it was great! The value is absolutely amazing and since we stayed in March we had the slopes all to ourselves. It's a 15 minute drive to Mt. Whiteface and a 3 minute drive to the Main Street with all the shopping, restaurants and bars. Located... More

We arrived late and settled in. The hotel is rustic, if a bit dated, but this adds to the charm. The room was spotless though the tv was from another era (but you don't come to Lake Placid to watch tv). In summer, the view of the lake is gorgeous.There's a quaint little reading room with a selection of magazines... More

We went here on a guys ski trip and we had a blast, great place, can't wait to go back. Went here for the ski+stay package and it was a great value, a lot cheaper compared to the places in Canada. The staff were very friendly and in the evening they had a bonfire which was a fun pre-drink. It's... More

This is a charming motel - not you usual chain. It's a bit dated but that just adds to the great atmosphere. The owners are very friendly and helpful. the location is great and our room looked out over Lake Placid. It's a really lovely spot and you can easily walk into town. There's an indoor pool and outdoor pool/lake.

We usually stay here at least twice a year. We have looked at other places but nothing in Lake Placid compares to this. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are always friendly. There are canoes and paddle boats available to take out into the bay and there is usually a fire every night depending on the weather.... More

Arrived after 6 looking for a place for 2 on the road mountainbike riders to stay. WOW... can't say enough about the fabulous service, from keeping the indorr pool and hot tub open late to the bonfire on the lake, just because they could. We will return for mountainbiking and skiing when that season arrives!!

We stayed at the Wildwood on the lake hotel for one night last weekend and were quite happy with it. The rooms are old but we were not looking for something fency. It was cheap, conveniently located and we enjoyed the indoor pool. You can use the pedalboat and canoe, and have bunfire on the side of the lake.

A very nice clean, quite and comfortable room with a reasonable rate (off season for leaf change) A continental breakfast, but opened at 8am. We were long gone by then. Needs to be at 7am for the early travelers.
