I'll say right off that my feelings for this hotel are colored by the fact that it rained while there and I never got to enjoy the mountain views, etc. That being said, I still found the hotel kind of weird, the way you had to walk past the front desk every time you were entering or leaving. The owner... More

As a touring motorcyclist the Mountain View Inn had all the amenities we look for. It is family owned and operated so everything on property is in perfect condition, the owner are actually on site. The Inn is located on the main drag in downtown Lake Placid, so walking to dinner or whatever is a great option. Our room looked... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the amenities of a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. Stayed on the top floor so had a balcony and the lake is across the street. Very convenient for walking thru the town. Great restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay there again. Because it is on the main road it is not particularly quiet, but I like... More

The inn was locatied in a beautiful area overlooking the lake, which was very nice. Anything you needed seemed to be there, in a just like home kind of fashion. Close to everything downtown in lake placid, which was great as we could walk,

Located right on Main Street right after the shops with a parking lot, which is very convenient, so you don't have to pay for parking downtown. Hotel staff was very nice and friendly. Vic is a "46" er, so he can tell you all about hiking and make some recommendations. The rooms are clean and very spacious with outside balconies.... More

Our stay at the "Hill Top Cottage" at the Mountain View Inn was great. The price was very reasonable and view was second to none. The Cottage allows you privacy and all the ammentities of home while enjoying the beautiful Lake Placid Village. The only note is that the upstairs bedrooms are the only air conditioned areas, but seeing as... More

Terrific owners and very clean and modern rooms. Located right on Main Street and a perfect location for walking to the various shops, restaurants, etc. I think this just might be the best value in Lake Placid. Right across the street from Mirror Lake but you can see it from your balcony. I highly recommend the Mountain View Inn.
