For the price per night you get exactly what you pay for. A basic room at a good location (if you're headed to Whiteface Mountain). The facility needs updating. The carpeting in our room had huge stains everywhere. My 6'2" husband had the shower head reach his chest. We knew when the neighboring room was showering because water pressure fell... More

We were looking for a hotel under $100/night and are always anxious about what we'll find at that price point. Well, we were pleasantly surprised! It was me, my husband and daughter, along with our two dogs in the room and it was perfect. Clean, crisp and well appointed in a very homey way. Not fancy - a nice throwback... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the motel while on a ski trip. We expected it to be your average motel but when we walked into our room we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very cozy and clean. It was recently renovated. The heat worked very well and our room was very warm, which was a huge plus being... More

We stayed here when we went skiing at Whiteface. Close to the mountain, clean, and very cute old fashioned motel kind of place. The breakfast was a basic continental, and the owner was very accommodating when we thought we would have to spend an extra night because of a snowstorm. If we ever go back to Lake Placid, I would...

We stayed at the Birch Tree Lodge in Wilmington, NY while my son was playing in the Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse Tournament. The room was older and a bit outdated, but very clean. It was great to have laundry services available on site and they included a nice little continental breakfast. The price was decent and what we expected from... More

Very small outdoor pool (COLD!), but lovely little setting. Updated flat screen TV and wifi available. Parking directly outside room. Very quiet location and I felt very safe being there. Owner was a very... More

We stayed here for an event at Whiteface Mountain. Our stay was affordable and just what we needed. The beds are firm. There is a small refrigerator to stock food, a flat screen tv and a community kitchen if we needed it. We really liked it here because it was simple. Everyone in the area was so friendly. For us,...
