“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We stopped in Lake Placid for the night without a reservation. We were able to get a room here for a very reasonable price considering it was in season. The room ws extremely clean and had a fantastic view! The location was perfect - we were able to walk to town without the hassle of finding a parking space. We will be back!

Perfectly situated across from Mirror Lake. It has all lake views.
It is an older renovated motel with outside doors and the price reflects this. Itis not a four star property. It is a three star with stellar view, perfect location, nice service and pets allowed If the pricing remains competitive this is perfect.

A previous review was correct in that the High Peaks Resort was a much nicer hotel, but you are still able to share all the same amenities as the High Peaks Resort, your just in a different, older building. Essentially, if you wanna to stay in a more updated comparable room next door, you can pay 30-40 bucks more a night.

With that said, this place was still very good. Our room looked directly out over the lake and had a small balcony with seats. Room was very clean and bed comfy. There may be cheaper deals, but not in this location or looking out over the lake.

I was very supprised to see negative reviews. I stayed here in 2011 for 4 days and 3 days
this year. The room I had was large and clean. The bathroom was a little small but clean
and not a big deal. The staff was friendly and helpful both in person and on the phone.
The location is perfect with a clear view of Mirror Lake. I watched fireworks from my room one
night. You have acccess to the amenities at High Peaks Resort across the road. For what
I paid I don't think I could have done better.

Room Tip: King room on 2nd floor(vaulted ceilings and same level as parking)

After staying here for 3 nights on a recent ski trip, I absolutely cannot understand some of the highly negative reviews. The place is clean, modern, the rooms spacious, had comfortable bedding, and it had a great indoor pool and spa. The location is smack dab in the middle of the village and has a nice lake view.

Yes, you have to cross the street to check in at the High Peaks Resort. But unless you're the Queen of England, this is a very minor inconvenience. I found the staff to be extremely helpful and informative as this was my first trip to Lake Placid.

I will be staying here again in the future.

This Hotel is very outdated, everything is fromn the 1980's. The rooms need new paint and the carpets need to be replaced. It's inconvenient to have to go across the street to check in at the High Peeks Resort witch is a MUCH nicer hotel. It is a GREAT location. The beds were extremely comfortable but other than that I will not stay there again for the pice that we paid!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level have a nice balcony. Corner suites are larger.

Made a reservation on a Wednesday (for Friday night). Called Thursday to cancel (Inclement weather forecasted). Was then told there was a 7 day cancellation policy! Weather turned out not to be that bad so we made the trip (after all they were going to charge us anyway). Should have stayed home. WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE EVER!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
