Stayed here Nov 17-20 and had a wonderful time. The room faced Mirror Lake (recommended) and was spacious and clean. The village bells were a nice festive touch. The restaurant was closed for renovations which was disappointing but we did have access to a doughnut shop for breakfast without going outside (not very good though) Front desk reception was excellent...

We have been to Lake Placid several times and this is the first time we stayed at the Golden Arrow, but not the last. The Golden Arrow will become our new go-to property for a Lake Placid getaway.

We were in town for a youth hockey tournament and the location of the Golden Arrow could not have been better. The staff was welcoming and accommodating and did a great job managing the large number of families in the building while also preserving the peace for the rest of the guests. The room was clean and comfortable and had... More

We stayed at this hotel for the first time over Thanksgiving week. It is a very nice lakefront hotel right in the heart of downtown Lake Placid with reasonably priced, spacious rooms, many of which offer balconies directly overlooking the lake. They also have various "speciality rooms" that offer larger floor plans, fireplaces, kitchenettes, etc. It is an environmentally-friendly hotel,... More

Stayed here during thanksgiving week for a few days. Had one of the suites at the end of the hall. Very nice and clean room. Fireplace was great, and nice view of the lake. Bathroom was also very nice. Would be nice to have something small available for breakfast, but oh well. Would stay here again.

Really a nice hotel. Food not great but not terrible either. Bartender was horrible and the fact that the bar closes at midnight....ridiculous. Location is perfect far walking about town...across from Olympic venue.
