We stayed one night at Golden Arrow in May 2015 and everything was perfect. The location is great, close to everything. The check-in, fast, less than 2 minutes. The staff was very helpful. The lounge is beautiful, with a great view towards Mirror Lake. We noticed a few worn-out signs (bottom of the pool is cracked and small pieces of... More

This was our second stay at Golden Arrow. During the first stay, the hotel was under construction - very bad - and service in the restaurant was extremely poor. I was apprehensive to stay again but it was where our family was staying. This stay was absolutely the best. Our room was wonderful, quiet; the restaurant was filled with happy... More

The service was amazing. Main street was a treat to walk on and take pictures. We had a lovely time here. I'm a bit of a neat freak so the place could have been a little cleaner but that's because my standards are really high. Wasn't cringe worthy and that pleased me a lot. Also there weren't a lot of...

Dear Marteka S, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at the Golden Arrow. I’m glad you were satisfied with the cleanliness of the resort. I, too, am somewhat of a neat freak so I know what it can be like when you go to a hotel and it’s less than stellar. It’s great to hear that... More

This hotel is perfect. Great location, near the commercial area, in the front of the mirror lake and has a fantastic staff. Confortable and cleaned room! There is a beach in the hotel where you can rest and relax a while.

Food was very good at the restaurant, the night club was fun and inviting, lake side rooms offered great views. This hotel was a perfect setting in Lake Placid offering a great location across from the Olympic arena's, right next to main street shopping. Great location and super friendly staff.

Stayed in April 2015 and found the property to be extremely clean and very well maintained. I'm very particular about hotels being clean and this exceeded even my high expectations! Was with a large group and each of the rooms I was in were slightly different with fantastic granite in the bathrooms and all super clean.

We stayed for 2 nights and Loved it! Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and located right in the middle of town. When you stay here you get discounts from some of the local shops. We are already planning our next trip here and we haven't left yet. Looking forward to the next time.

An excellent spot in Lake Placid. Lovely rooms and great service. Beautiful view of Mirror Lake right out of our room with a nice deck off our room. Very clean and a "green" standard hotel. Would definitely go back. Convenient to everything in town and free parking is available.
