I made reservations at the Northwoods Inn on Main St to be within walking distance of the Olympic Arena. Location is supurb. Park car and walk so parking worked out for us. After booking I read reviews and got worried about what I'd find and was having second thoughts... It's an old Lake Placid Hotel which adds to it's charm.... More

I had a 5 night stay this October. I selected it because most people here gave the hotel positive reviews and I received a good price for mid-week - $69.00. I found most of the staff very friendly and helpful. My "standard" room was much more than I expected. I was hoping for a coffee maker and ref. but instead... More

Parking is first come, first serve, otherwise, find what you can, where you can. We had reservations (called about 2 weeks ahead), but they had no record of it, even though we had the confirmation number. We were quoted a price, and the guy (owner) said no way we would be told that price. So ended up paying $50.00) A... More

We decided to go to Lake Placid for our honeymoon in mid September. Our first thought was to get a resonable room for a couple of nights and then go from there. Right away we knew we had made the right choice. From the atmosphere to the location(right on Main Street overlooking the Lake) to the extremely friendly and very... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by our stay at this hotel. We'd booked an "Executive Suite" and were pleased by what we got for an excellent price. A nice sized bathrom, separate lounge with TV, largish bedroom again with TV and king sized bed. The mattress is the best I've ever slept on - including home! There was a separate... More

We stayed here and you cannot beat the location. Room was nice enough, but could use an update. Adirondack themed lobby and lounge area a nice touch. We had a suite with stove and fridge with little sofa and table. Bedroom area was detatched. Matress wonderful. We had a balcony room, which faced a concrete painted wall. *we were told... More

I'll start with the positives. The location is absolutely perfect - right on Main Street and in the middle of everything. The beds were brand new tempur-pedic beds and very comfortable. The hotel can stand some updates... The blankets were old and "shedding". The extra blanket in the closet was old, stained and ripped. For 169 per night, I didn't... More

I was travelling with my nearly 4 year old son to Lake Placid for the weekend and found this Inn to be wonderful. Probably the greatest feature of the hotel is it's location. The hotel is located right in downtown Lake Placid amidst all of the restaurants and shops and within close walking distance to both Mirror Lake and Lake... More

Our room was better than we had expected. It was large with a comfortable bed and very clean and quiet. It had a really nice arrangement with a living area with a couch and table and kitchen, and the bedroom area was spacious and could be closed off from the rest of the room. The view of Mirror Lake was... More

Last year when we stayed at this hotel, we had struggled to come back. But since that time, the room we stayed in this year for a week, had the upgrades and quality that the hotel made. We are staying here again next year for the third time. It is not a posh resort, but when you are staying in... More
