4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

The room we stayed in was very dusty, the robes were stained, the bathroom was bare-bones basic. Although all staff (all very young)called out "good morning" & "nice day" whenever paths were crossed, they were not helpful or professional. For example, after checking in we were told to "find a space" within one of the numerous parking lots. Having found... More

Thank you for being our guest. We were very surprised to read your comments which are completely out of character for us. The comments we hear most often is how clean we are and how friendly and helpful our staff are. Offering assistance with luggage is a standard part of our check-in process and if this was not offered I... More

This is a great place to stay when in the Lake Placid Area. We enjoyed the view and various activities offered. The front desk is very helpful and will give you information on the area. Back in 1980 I stayed here with my family for the 1980 Olympics. So I have a long history with this Hotel!

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Checked in early and had lunch across the street. Got to our room later and joyed the view of the lake a bit before heading out for dinner. Great staff with good knowledge of the area. Would recommend to anyone headed up there!

Recently stayed here in the Terrace part of the hotel. The rooms are comfortable with a very nice view. It is a small hike to the main building but not any kind of a problem. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The afternoon tea and cookies is a nice touch. Just get there early as seats go fast. Pricey,... More

I can not say enough about our wonderful stay at the Mirror Lake Inn. It absolutely made out vacation. VERY friendly and professional staff. Amazingly clean. (I challenge you to find dust in this old Inn) Close to downtown Lake Placid, but with a feeling of privacy. Beautiful views, stunningly kept gardens, amazing dark woodwork and Adirondack decorating, clean, comfortable,... More

My husband and I have stayed at many luxury hotels all over the world, and the Mirror Lake Inn is spectacular! In my opinion, customer service is really what separates a "good" hotel from a "great hotel", and this team is top notch! The staff was friendly and accommodating, helping us get out of a bind when we needed a... More

A family owned Inn , the personal touches invite you in the moment you arrive making you feel right at home. The dark woods and Adironack furnishings capture that lakeside feel while never letting you forget you are in a world class hotel. The staff is friendly and attentive. We stayed in a mountain view room which looks over the... More

We stayed in a "Mckenzi room" that is in the main building with a porch that looks apon the lake. The room was a quick walk to the beach, "The Cottage" (my favorite for having a beverage), pool and restaurants. It was a cool day during the week and we had the pool to ourselves. We ordered food from "The... More
