This is the first time ever that I book a hotel online and the place is waaaay much better than in the pictures. Since I was not familiar with the area, I was not sure where to stay. I wanted to bring my daughter to "Santa's workshop" and this hotel was recommended in their website. I called to make a... More

Our family of three went on a ski vacation over New Year's week at Whiteface Mountain and chose Mountain Brook Lodge after reading all of the great reviews. I can tell you that the place lived up to the hype. Upon arrival, Al greeted us at the front desk/gift shop as if we were a part of his family. He... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to have a "winter wonderland" type vacation before I head on my third deployment. All other hotels in the area were expensive, and we were skeptical of the low end motels. We then came across Mountain Brook Lodge which seemed reasonable and even more so when we noticed that your first night is free for... More

Al makes you feel right at home. We brought our daughter, 18 months, and she loved him and the resident mascot Bam Bam! We will be back. Couldn't have better things to say! Really enjoyed everything about this. He made a fire Saturday night, and even though it was cold, we all sat around and enjoyed each other's company! Really... More

Simple but clean and charming accommodations, very friendly owner. Rooms have lots of pine and bunk beds that look brand new. Beds are comfortable and hot water is super hot. Perfect place to stay if you are visiting Santa's workshop. Would definitely stay again. Discount for Veterans.

This review is long over due, but the couple that own the lodge (Al & Alicia Armstrong) were so memorable that months later I knew I needed to come back and give them an amazing review! My boyfriend and I were there this summer (2014 for an annual softball tournament). We met Al at the ballpark and he invited us... More

This was my first visit to Mountain Brook Lodge and it was great! I'll definitely be back. I have stayed at several places in the High Peaks region and am finding myself gravitating towards Wilmington more and more. It's a short drive from Wilmington to Lake Placid or Keene/Keene Valley (not to mention on the doorstep of Whiteface). They have... More

As someone who is used to 4 & 5 star hotels, I chose this place as an added trip experience because of its "camping" vibe (with all modern day amenities, of course). I like to try different stuff sometimes..the bigger hotels are typical- why not mix things up a bit? This was so much more than we had expected! Absolutely... More

You need to pick this motel for your stay in Wilmington, NY. Owner Al is the nicest guy and does everything he can to make you feel home. Rooms are very clean and well equipped, free breakfast is really good - fresh bagels, good coffee and good orange juice. At night, Al will light up a campfire and invites every... More

We stayed at Mountain Brook Lodge for four nights and were very pleased. The room was large and very reasonably priced. Our host Al was very attentive and helpful. The breakfast was included and had hot and cold cereal, fruit, bagels, orange juice and coffee. There was even a gathering around a bonfire one night. It is located about 10... More
