My husband and I stayed at the Econo-Lodge in Lake Placid for one night, 8/27/2012, to celebrate my husband's birthday. We arrived and were quickly admitted (having made the reservations and pre-paid online). All the lady asked for was our license plate number and signature... no credit card for "incidentals"... nice! She didn't have much to say, other than to... More

The Econo Lodge was a great value. Breakfast buffet needs some type of protien. It offers donuts, english muffins, two kinds of cereal and oatmeal. The indoor pool and hot tub was great! Great service all around. Easy location off the main street, trolley stops out front as well. Rooms need a facelift, however friendly staff everywhere! Great value, would... More

Spent 2 nites with my wife. Horrible service, Squeeky door, asked guy @ desk for some lubricant, was told maintenance will be there shortly. 2 days later, nobody. Internet??? Not even a public computer. 2 Pools, no, 1 indoor & DIRTY! HBO in rooms, not true. Advice? For $99.00 a nite, keep driving!

We booked this motel as a group with our son's lacrosse team. We were initially greeted with rules and regulations as to what the kids could and could not do, including no tossing lacrosse balls in the parking lot, and we were required to pay for a night watchman to keep the kids in line overnight. I guess they have... More

This place is nothing to get excited about. It's pretty outdated and could use a reno. The free breakfast should not be called a breakfast. There were 3 english muffins and some coffee when we got there in the morning. It was reasonably priced.

Clean and comfortable. A little too far from downtown. Need to drive or take free trolley. Fair continental breakfast included. Just check your invoice when you check out. They tacked on a daily "Safe/Ltd Warranty" charge even though I did not request or use the safe. They did reverse it when I questioned it.

We booked this hotel through www.lakeplacid.com to stay at during the Lake Placid Ice Dancing Championships. We booked a regular room with 2 Queen Sized Beds. When we checked in to the hotel, it was pouring rain. I was assigned the room and unloaded our luggage. The room was a non-smoking room, but it smelled as if someone had dumped... More

This motel is relatively inexpensive compared to other hotels in Lake Placid. You do get what you pay for; the room is very basic. It is also very clean! The breakfast is also very basic, just cold items served in a conference room. We had no issues with the motel and the owner was very friendly and helpful!

Feb.2011: snow bulited-up to a dangerous level on the roof of the hotel, gave way and landed on my car which was parked in front of my hotel unit. As can be seen in the photo, my windshield was destroyed and the hood of my car was caved in from the weight of the snow. I was stuck at the... More

The Econo Lodge, while not as fancy or picturesque as some of the places in Lake Placid, was everything we needed for our stay. It's about a mile from the center of town. The room was neat if a little used, and the view wasn't much to speak of, but it was very easy to get around and an excellent... More
