We had a fabulous weekend in Lake Placid & the story of how/why we stayed at The Alpine Motor Inn is complex...but all that to say: never EVER stay here! The room was small & dirty and the sheets didn't stay on the bed...we woke up ON the dirty mattress...yuck!!...I slept IN my clothes because I just did not want... More

The structure of the motel needs major work. The floors are on an angle the heating vents are rusty and some are off, the carpet is duct taped together, the shower makes noise and gives you a mist output. Missy the lady behind the desk should not be in customer service. She couldn't even say HI, Good morning. I complimented... More

I've been using this hotel for the last three years as a launch pad for my various skiing and climbing trips, and we love the place, its the best cheap deal in town. Ok, so you have to bring your own shampoo (you know you have a hoard from other trips at home anyway, and admit it - hotel shampoo... More

I needed a place to stay in Lake Placid on an last minute trip. I usually stay at Art Deviln's (which is a great clean motel) but they were booked. So I spotted the Alpine Motor Inn just outside of town, they had a room available and fairly cheap too. The room was disgusting, it was dirty, there were tiles... More

This was the second time we stayed at this motel. The first was a pleasant stay, which is why we went back. Must have changed hands in between times. There was only 1 towel in the bath and when my wife asked for more, the manager said the maid had forgotten to put the washed towels in the dryer and... More

AlpineInnMotel, Owner at Alpine Motor Inn, responded to this review

This is in response to "Motel Hell" review. While we are not one of the upscale Hotels in the area - we are a clean, and affordable Motel. We provide comfort, warmth, and all at a very reasonable rate for the area. We do not claim to be the lap of luxury and don't have all the amenities of a... More

Since they changed hands the quality has declined sharply. We were told our room was slightly larger than the rest and conatined a small kichenette and sitting area which we thought would be nice. We opened the door to our room only to find a very aged room in need of attention. The curtains were barely hanging by the curtain... More

Had a great stay here. They really went over and above to make my stay conformable. To be specific I had some equipment needs and was staying for a week on my own and they met all my needs to make it a great stay while I was taking part in the world cup and north american cup at Whiteface.
