We have stayed at the Golden Arrow many times and it is always clean, comfortable with many extras. We upgraded to a suite with 2 rooms, breakfast nook, and whirlpool tub and the view was gorgeous. We also like the robes to use too. It was wonderful and all the staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the pool and... More

Within 10 miles of Whiteface ski area and 1980 winter Olympic area. I had actually stayed in this same hotel 20 years prior and it has only gotten better. Great pool, hot tub, and game room for kids. Also has great sauna and steam room.

We LOVE the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort & can't say enough good things about them. We have stayed in their regular rooms but the last few times we've stayed in one of the suites. We usually vacation in Lake Placid in the wintertime because we enjoy skiing and other winter activities. The hotel is right on Mirror Lake and during... More

The Golden Aarow Lakeside Resort was a hotel which appeared to have expaned by connecting buildings. It is right on mirror lake in downtwon Lake Placid. It is really a summer resort and the tourist business in Lake Placid is primary a summer activity. That being said, I was there for the ECAC hockey tournament in March. The hotel is... More

Nice place in the middle of the Lake Placid, about 10 miles from Whiteface mountain. Good clean big rooms. Nice view if you on the Mirror lake side room. A lot of restaurants close by. Not much for apres-ski activities. Good value for off-season sale ski package.

Golden Arrow staff are very friendly. The room we're in, 109, is lakeside and renovated. It's winter now, but in the summer this room would be even nicer as there is a French door to the lake with a nice porch, and I understand there is a nice sand beach just a few feet away from the room. I believe... More
