We have been staying at the Grand View Motel for years now...and have nothing but rave reviews about this amazing, serene place. The owner Lou is always kind, happy, and extremely knowledgeable about the entire region...the place is absolutely immaculate...the new pool is wonderful and refreshing in the summer...and all you hear is the peaceful sound of nature all around...

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

Rode into town on my motorcycle and stayed one night. The hot shower was really great and the bed comfy. I swear I could have eaten off the floor, the room was so clean. Although I did make a reservation, I rolled into town shortly before sunset but the proprietor (I assume) was very friendly and accommodating. Didn't use it... More

This review will be as scathing as I can make it. The man who appeared at the desk for my reservation check in did not greet me with any kind of courtesy: No show of pleasantness at all, did not identify himself or act in any way that he thought it was good to have me there spending money to...

In response to northcountry review I remember this guest very well because she was very odd in her mannerism at check in. She had some kind of an unfriendly, very depressing way about her. She was quoted a discounted rate when she called to make her reservation for only one night on a holiday weekend. She also said that she... More

We stayed here for our visit to the Lake Placid Ironman. The man at front desk was super helpful and very nice. I believe he was the owner. The motel itself was in a great location for our needs but it was expensive for that particular weekend. Although to be fair EVERYWHERE in the area is expensive for the area.... More

It was our first visit to the Grand View and we will certainly be back. The gentleman who checked us in greeted us warmly and happily split the bill for us as we were both paying cash. The rates are very reasonable, especially for the area, and they often have mid-week specials. The room was immaculately clean. It was large,... More

We have been coming to the "Grandview" for over 15 yrs....The title speaks volumes "Grandview". Most friendly, immaculate, and the perfect place to be. I suffer with asthma,and because of lou's stringent animal policy, people like me, never have to worry about it.,Move in, unpack and breathe the great mountain air..Can't say enough.
