Love getting a room here. Location is perfect. Parking is great. The rooms and cozy and clean. Right at the center of town. The price is right. As soon as you call, they speak to you as a person that they remember. Free Wifi. TV and many channels to choose from. A fridge and microwave and Coffee maker. The beds... More

Mountain view . . . It's true, right out the window. We were not in the room much, but it was clean and worked for us. Has a fridge that had enough space for our stuff. We always bring our own coffee pot cuz hotel coffee is not for us. TV for news and plenty of channels if you need... More

Really pleased with our recent stay at the Mountain View Inn. We were greeted by friendly staff, had a comfortable room which was nice and quiet, were able to walk out the door to the quaint village streets, and woke to a beautiful view of the mountains. Also perfect distance to Whiteface. We'll definitely return.

Always a pleasure to visit Placid and stay at the Mountain View. Knowing that nothing lasts forever- I hope the future holds true and "The Mountain View" remembers us as regulars; loyal patrons looking for a place to lay our heads without spending a fortune.....

Clean and bright, with one of the comfiest hotel beds ever! This is not the place for travelers who need every amenity under the sun, but it was great for us because all we really needed for accomodations was a place to hang our clothes and sleep!! Appreciated that the room had a coffee maker, frig, and micro. Quiet location... More

Our family of 8 stayed at the cottage, it is house and we felt very at home and comfortable. Everything was clean and we were able to bring food, cook and relax while my daughter competed in the Eastern Sectionals Synchronized Skating Championships (her team came in first place by the way). The cottage is close to everything. This is... More

The woman on the phone is rude, condescending and unwilling to work with a customer. I had an unexpected death in the family and could not stay at the time planned. Granted, it was a last minute cancellation. Its a busy Martin Luther King holiday weekend and they can charge higher rates. I offered to have her tell me dates... More

I was a bit skeptical of staying in an inexpensive motel, but it was the perfect choice! No frills in this place, but was very clean and had comfy beds. The location was absolutely perfect - walking distance to everything on Main Street in the heart of downtown Lake Placid. So glad we stayed here and not somewhere else!

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for three nights between Christmas and New Years. The room is decent-sized and most things worked well. The heat was powerful but difficult to modulate I liked having some chairs to sit in for reading, and the view was outstanding. The lobby staff was very friendly and helpful and the location really... More
