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

This is the perfect setting for a weekend away. The rooms are quaint and give you a relaxed feeling. The hostess is always smiling and makes you feel most welcome. It is like staying overnight at your grandmother's big Victorian home.

Beater old place. Overpriced. Terrible service. Won't change the sheets or vacuum on a 4 day stay. Bathtub peeling. Walls peeling. Soap and shampoo from 1958. Noisy. No elevator so schlep your bags 4 flights. Want to change ? That's a UN negotiation. Long with unsatisfactory results. Owner kinda tries but more about greedy than about service or value on... More

Stayed one night, and didn't have high expectations. It's old-fashioned with lots of creaky wood (call it character). The accommodations were dated and on the small side. It's a budget-place, so what do you expect? The lobby seating area is huge, and the wi-fi worked there. If you don't mind a few imperfections and are travelling on a budget, this... More
