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.

We arrived last night and the resort is beautiful. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine and a hand made pot. The room was very clean and nice with many extras. Bed is very comfortable and fireplace works like a charm. The one warning I have is DO NOT purchase the meal voucher for the attached Generations restaurant.... More

Dear Bubbakanush, Thank you for your review of the Golden Arrow and Generations. I’m very glad that you enjoyed staying at the resort. It sounds like, for the most part, you did have a good experience. We do get some confusion from time to time with the breakfast vouchers. The cost of the vouchers is $13 per person and that...

We stayed here with a sports team and it was amazing. The lobby is welcoming, the service was lovely and the view from every room is amazing. First, when you enter the Golden Arrow hotel they take your things and ask if you would like a drink and tell you your room and give you your key. Another great part... More

When I booked this room I really didn't look too hard at past reviews, but at the fact that they would take our 100lb dog. I called directly as I couldnt figure out how to book a dog friendly room. The man on the phone was a great help and got us a beautiful lake side room. If you are... More

Dear Kim W, Thank you for your great review of the Golden Arrow. I’m very glad you were able to enjoy your stay with your dog. As a dog owner myself, I know what it’s like to have to leave your fur baby behind when traveling. It’s always better when you are able to bring them along so I’m glad... More

We have been coming to the Golden Arrow for close to 10 years. We come as a family and usually meet friends there as well. Nothing beats the location and amenities. From the beach to the boats, the amazing view, the Golden Arrow has it all. Winter too - skating, outdoor fires and more! We love the 1st level walk... More

Just returned from a few days in Lake Placid, and stayed at Golden Arrow on Mirror Lake. Yes, I do recommend this location for couples, families, friends while in Lake Placid. Our room was on the fourth floor, which is street level, and it was a generous size, with balcony overlooking Mirror Lake. Beautiful vistas! The indoor pool was quite... More

We went to Lake Placid in hope of getting some fresh air and enjoying the picturesque views of the Adirondack Mountains. The hotel was clean and well cared. It is overlooking the Mirror Lake. The beds were comfortable and they had firm pillows so, if those soft hotel pillows were killing your necks like they used to do to mine,... More

Stayed here in early April and loved the room with balcony overlooking mirror lake! Very clean etc and great staff at front desk. However the young people in the room next door were very loud and we could hear them talking/yelling thru the night. The walls are paper thin which is the problem.
