Try to find a place to stay in the Adirondack Mountains in August on short notice - almost impossible. Except if you call The Grand View Motel in Wilmington and ask for the Owner - Lou. He had two rooms ready for us in no time. Beautiful setting, comfortable rooms and great hospitality. Better yet, the Grand View is a... More

We stayed one night at the Grand View and were totally satisfied. Our reservation at another local motel had not been kept for us and Lou was happy to accommodate our needs for the night. The room was dated but it was very clean and pleasant. I would recommend this motel if you're in need of a decent place to... More

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend( Victoria Day in Canada). While the motel is dated it is very clean and the whole facility well kept. There is an outside pool( not open yet-too early) and Adirondack chairs to sit under an ancient tree and watch the world go by.( Or see Whiteface Mountain just beyond) We had... More

This hotel is the best deal around! We stayed with my granddaughter and my husband and I for 2 nights to visit Santas Workshop. The hotel was the cleanest place I have ever stayed and I travel for work. The pool was closed because it was fall but there was a little swing set for our 3 year old granddaughter... More

The Grand View Motel is a great choice if you're looking to stay in the High Peaks region without breaking the bank. The rooms are clean, the manager is very courteous and helpful, and the price (with a AAA discount) can't be beat. They have WiFi as well, which is not something you always find at a roadside motel like... More

My husband & I have been staying here on our getaways for quite a few years. The rooms are bright & airy, with the view of Whiteface Mt. from the front door chairs. It's just a few minutes from the village, but away from the bustle. We've gone hiking, canoeing, kayaking and just checking out the area. Our 'home away... More
