Stayed here this weekend, the room was ready when we arrived, the front desk had just turned up the heat for us before we arrived, early and unannounced, the room was quiet, clean, and just as described on their web site. The Motel was located close to downtown and near stores and restaurants, the room was clean, tidy stocked with... More

I cannot describe how pleasurable this experience was; from excellent prices, extremely clean rooms (I swear the room looked brand new), friendly staff, and proximity to everything we needed, this place had it all. The kitchenette was perfect for morning coffee, hot cereal microwaved, and reheating leftovers. The room was decently sized, and felt less like a motel and more... More

Excellent family run hotel and it shows, very well looked after, rooms very, very clean, backs onto lake placid . Easy walking distance into town for dinner or breakfast. Canoes are available for use on the lake.

The second consecutive year my wife and I stayed at the PBI (we regularly attend the annual Summit Lacrosse Tournament to watch our boys play, and at which it's been my pleasure to officiate), this visit was even more enjoyable than the first. For Visit #2 we opted to stay in a lakeside view room, and awoke daily to a... More

We love The Placid Bay Inn. I have stated there just about every time I'm in Lake Placid, and we're there at least twice per year for some hiking in the High Peak Region. Rooms are cozy and quaint. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Free use of canoes on the lake are a plus. Hands down the nicest place we... More

I stayed one night at the Placid Bay Inn as part of a tour group. The double double room was exceedingly clean although very spartan (no coffee maker for example). Room descriptions provided by fellow travelers indicate that the accomodations vary greatly in terms of amenities so it may be advantageous to call for specific information prior to booking. The...

Had and amazing weekend at placid bay inn. Will definitely come back and stay again. Service is very friendly, they go above and beyond to satisfy visitors. Super clean rooms and gorgeous back yard. Just a short 10 minute walk to the main strip can't wait to go back next season.
