This hotel is perfect for people wanting to come to lake placid to party ski and get away with out breaking the bank. There is a good bar/restaurant on the first floor and the location is prime for nightlife. The rooms were big and not bad plus It is also pretty close to the mountain. On the negative side the...

This is my second review of the Northwoods Inn. Please read my first as it also contains some valuable information. I have stayed at this place many times over the last several years. I came to its defense on Yelp after I noticed that some people were rating it poorly with, what seemed to be, poor reason. However, I must... More

I booked this hotel because I was going to head out to Whiteface to ski and my girlfriend doesn't, I wanted her to be able to walk around town and have stuff to do while I was on the slopes. I also didn't want to spend $200+ a night. The Northwoods met that criteria so I don't want to be... More

I checked into room 617 January 31 and checked out February 11. Had a great view of the street and Mirror Lake activities. I could also catch a glimpse of the ski jumping area towers, and on a clear day, a tiny glimpse of the bobsled area. My room was comfy and warm, almost too hot, so I kept adjusting... More

Stayed in this hotel on a school trip. The hotel wasn't as bad as I thought it would be from the reveiws online. The only problems we had with our rooms were: A lump in the floor where someone in my group bruised their toe Turned lights on above mirror and bulb smashed Blow drying hair and blew all the... More

We stayed at the Northwoods Inn this last weekend (March 1, 2014). After reading some of the reviews we were hesitant to book. Okay, the place needs updating but most hotels do. The location was perfect and our room was great, large with a kitchenette which we were not expecting, it was clean, tidy and comfortable. The lobby area could... More

Our room was on the top floor and had gorgeous views of Mirror Lake. The hotel is modestly decorated, but very clean and comfortable. The bed in our room had a memory foam mattress and we slept like babies. The furnishings are a bit dated, but well maintained, so that didn't detract from our experience at all. The staff was...

We asked to be near our teenage children and were given 2 large adjoining rooms . We actually had a double bed each!!! The heating is a bit dated but apart from that the rooms... More

The location of this hotel is perfect as it is bang in the middle of Lake Placid. Starbucks is a stones throw away and there are some good eating establishments in the vicinity. Parking is free at the back of the hotel which is good, as parking is very limited in the Lake Placid area. Those I'm afraid are the... More

My son and I stayed on September 29th. From the minute we walked in the door, the front desk, gentleman was very helpful and made several suggestions for rooms, and even let us see the different rooms. We were allowed to check in early.
