We found all the comforts of ones bedroom in Northway Motel. Nice size room with comfortable bed. We were in Lake Placid to attend a wedding and wanted a place that was private and quiet yet close to town activities and eateries. Conveniently located to all Lake Placid shops and Olympic sights. We prefer coffee by the pot and the... More

This lovely little motel has been our favorite place to stay in the area for several years. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable and the beds are like sleeping on a feather! The property is well maintained and is conveniently located within walking distance into the village and beautiful Mirror Lake. Love kicking back in the morning or late... More

I live on the Isle of Wight in the UK and stayed here for three summers in a row-from 2009 to 2011, and loved it. At the time, I was seeing a chap called Matt Kittay who was born in the USA, went to Ruttgers, but moved to the UK with his wife and two young children. We met in... More

Stayed just for one night while in town. The rooms were very clean, and although the building and rooms are old-fashioned and not up to date, everything in in good condition. The motel is located just a short walk away from the downtown area (stores, bars, restaurants) and not a bad drive to the sports complex and Saranac. The price... More

Just south of downtown Lake Placid, within walking distance to everything. Property is in good condition both inside and out, and is very clean. Stayed in early September and rates were very reasonable.

After a bad experience at the Hotel Saranac in Saranac Lake, my friend and I went in search of a reasonably priced hotel in Lake Placid on Friday for Saturday. Most hotels were either fully booked for that Sat night or too expensive. The most ridiculous was Edelweiss which was asking $275 for the night and appeared to be just... More

We stayed at the Northway Motel July 4th weekend. The Northway is low budget, but they have put money into the right places. Our small bathroom was beautifully tiled, and our shower curtain was crisp white, with a plethora of fluffy white towels. The beds were also comfy with nice sheets and pillows. The WiFi didn't work, they told us... More
