My husband and I decided to plan a last minute weekend to Lake Placid. Unfortunately, our choices for a reasonable room in the midst of the summer season were few. We decided to book at the Pines Inn. I absolutely love the charm and history of this old hotel. However, it does have that musty, old smell when you walk... More

For the price, this hotel is what you expect. Few amenities are available, and none in the rooms. The staff were pleasant. Rooms were clean and cozy. The location is terrific. I would stay here again, but know that it is not a luxury destination.

Granted, I stayed here awhile ago (on New Year's Eve of 2011; I only chose April 2013 as I couldn't choose an earlier date); so I hope for this hotel's sake that they have much improved since. But my experience here was nasty and it was my first bed and breakfast-like type of experience; it was so bad that I... More

If you are one to expect modern amenities or gets freaked out by any little patch job or small old bathrooms, then this is not for you. It is an old hotel but it is very clean and very comfortable. The staff is extremely nice and helpful with anything we needed or asked about. Just a short walk from Main... More

Stay here for New Years. We got a lovely double room, very clean and well appointed. It was handy enough to the main St of Lake Placid which is just as well as there is no bar nor restaurant in the hotel. The is a small gym, pool table and sauna in terms of facilities and free wifi. Staff were... More

I have not been back to Lake Placid for a while, but on a friends recommendation I stayed at The Pines Inn. What a pleasant surprise. This small hotel has a European feel and a very nice ambiance. Although an older property it is spotless and lovingly maintained, with beautiful hardwood floors, nice decorations and very comfortable rooms. Its proximity... More

We booked into this hotel as it was reasonably priced and within walking distance of the town centre area. Weather was horrible (it was like Summer in Scotland), with heavy rain. Fortunately the hotel had large umbrellas to share with guests. We had thought we would eat in rather than face the weather but were told that as JUNE is... More

This property was probablly built during the 1932 Olympics. For medical reasons asked about elevator,the owner said no elevator, yet there is one for housekeeping only. Very very basic, price is not warrant more than $70/night. The owners need to be more hospitable if they wish to keep clients, and agree to prices from online booking. This property needs major...

The Pines Inn is in a perfect, quiet location, just 5 minutes from downtown Lake Placid. The owners were very kind and helpful (thanks for everything, Jill, you are the best!!), and gave us great advice for hiking and things to do in town. You cannot beat the price of the Inn for all you get -- including a hot... More
