As good as the higher priced places. THe bed had a trough in it so you have to sleep nead the edge because of the hump in the middle and can't spread out. They should rotate them more maybe or replace them. I wonder if any hotel management goes aroung and tries the beds.

Lake Placid is very expensive, where hotels such as the Best Western can cost $250 a night. Art Devlin's is a find. It is a motel, but the rooms are completely renovated with first rate bathrooms including granite counters. And it is about half the price of the big name hotels. Friendly staff and great service. Why stay anywhere else?

Like others who have commented, I was wondering how nice this place would be for the money I paid. Wow, I was blown away how nice and clean the room was. It was spotless. I stayed in the silver room but had a chance to see the gold room and that was really nice too. It's only a short walk... More

Wonderful motel and location. This is our third time staying here. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay that is affordable. Walking distance to restaurants and Mirror Lake. Will go back again and stay there if we return there.

Each year on our vist to Lake Placid we stay at Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Lodge. The difference between a family owned hotel and a corporate owned hotel is very evident here. It begins with service. Here you are treated like a valued guest. The rooms are clean and many of the bathrooms have been updated. You can grab a... More

This is a nice, stylish hotel. The price is reasonable and it is located within walking distance to downtown Lake Placid. The rooms are very comfortable and have an Adirondack style. I will definitely be back.

We always enjoy staying here. It is definitely the best value in Lake Placid, which can be pricey. The rooms are big but cozy, and spotless. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom is nice and spacious as well. Definitely recommend!

We stayed at this hotel last year, it was really cheap and surprisingly good. I was suspicious at first(didn't want to stay a night at the dump) but staff kindly gave us keys from several rooms so we look at them. Outside appearance can be deceptive. Rooms are very nice and pretty modern. We got a room on the 2nd... More

Stayed in this motor inn. Read the reviews but was not sure. After staying here this is the best kept secret in Placid. Rebecca was a joy to deal with and we very much enjoyed our stay. The gold rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Everything was fantastic. We will be back again.
