My husband and I stayed at the Mountain View Inn for one night on August 15th. We had called two days before and were lucky to get the last available room! Although check-in time is 3:00 pm, we arrived just before noon and were warmly welcomed. We were advised our room would be ready in just about an hour. Excellent... More

This past visit marked the 20th year I've been staying at the Inn. Vic and Carol--and staff--are wonderful hosts. The rooms are clean and neat--and the central location is ideal for Main Street shopping and dining.

Best accommodation in the middle of all the action in Lake Placid. Great view on the 2nd level looking at Mirror Lake and the Scenic Mountains. Very clean and comfortable. Right on the pathway to walk around Mirror Lake. We always come back to Mountain View Inn because of these reasons. Staff is great too!

This was our second stay at Mountain View and we will be booking next summer as well. Location is top notch with easy access to shops, bars, and sites. Having fridge and microwave in room makes it an easy stay for families. Staff is helpful and always pleasant!

Very nice locally owned hotel. Stayed for 2014 Ironman. Walking distance to everything. Rooms are large and clean. Owners bought a second bed for the room to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Nice view of mirror lake. Highly recommended.

The location and cost for this hotel during Ironman weekend were great! The room is a bit dated, but very clean! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. This is a great location, close to the bike course, transition, and nearby shopping.

We were very pleased with the Mountain View Inn. The room was extremely comfortable and very clean. The view was lovely. The location was perfect beause it was right in town and we were able to walk to restaurants, shopping, etc. We will definitely stay there again whenever we visit Lake Placid.

I was very happy with my stay at the Mountain View Inn in Lake Placid. We have stayed elsewhere for years and decided to give the MVI a shot. Everything was just right. The view from our room & balcony was excellent. Our room was very clean and the Inn staff were great to deal with. The location was superb.... More
