This motel has gone downhill big time. Stayed in old rooms even though we booked in Jan and asked for rooms in new part of hotel. Went hiking all day, when we came back the rooms weren't even cleaned! No towels for hot showers! Door lock was not fixed my husband had to get the guy to fix it and... More

expect my room to be clean when I check into a hotel because I am paying for the room I am staying in. I told the girl, the bath than had scum in it all around it, you could see it in my hands just like crumbled blue cheese. The sheets were stained, the comforters smelt awful, dingy, dim, and...

Considering that we were staying two nights and our main purpose was to hit the slopes and town, we had no complaints. The room was large and spacious. We didn't anticipate a free breakfast, which was provided. Some people have complained about the selection but I had no issues. Pretty standard stuff: cereal, fruits, pancakes, english muffins, juice, coffee. There... More

We just checked in. I realize you get what you pay for, but seeing that we had more snow in Boston than they did here, I'd expect they would at least attempt to shovel the lot. The bathroom is dusty and hairy. Really? It makes me nervous about surfaces not so visible. If not for our family all here, we... More

The hot tub was very nice as was the pool. many hotels overheat the hot tub and under heat the pool. but both of these amenities were great. the staff was kind and allowed us to check in an hour early. the breakfast was really...

I stayed at the Econolodge for the second year in a row during February break with my son and his snowboarding buddies. The great value of this hotel allowed us to book 2 rooms for the price of 1 at most of the other area hotels for the vacation week. Econolodge offers most of the same amenities as the pricier...

We were traveling with children. Our room had a broken window, large diagonal crack, that was repaired with clear packing tape. Our coffee maker did not work and the mattresses were not back friendly. However the room was clean and the staff were very friendly.

This is a great place to stay in the Lake Placid area. The rooms are clean and neat with plenty of room for stashing your extra winter gear, securely. Yes the décor is a bit retro - but even better are the retro room rates! Very reasonable. Amenities include an indoor poor and hot tub. We didn't use it, but... More

This hotel price is the best thing about the place. The building can best be described as 'tired' but it is generally clean. Heating system sounds like a jet plane taking off. Televisions are circa 1985. Keyed entry took about 15 swipes to finally work. We had a problem with one room which was handled very poorly by both the... More
