“Great location and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We were there over the weekend. The room was clean and large, the staff very friendly and accomodating. It was an easy walk to Mirror Lake and downtown Lake Placid. The view from the pool is breathtaking. In one view there are mountains and just turning fall foilage. We will definitely go back.

After a less than satisfying one night stay at a franchise facility down the road, we transferred to the Olympic Motor Inn. With family recently moved to the area, we will keep this one on our go-to list. A true mom 'n pop motel, with on-premises owners, flower gardens at the entrance, easy access room entry, and homey decor in very clean rooms. The reasonable room prices don't hurt, either.

We booked on the strength of reviews on here and weren't disappointed. The room was huge, the bathroom a good size and everything was spotlessly clean. The balcony out the back had a great view, and a nice spot to sit in the evening with a glass of wine.

The only small complaint that I could make would be that our room wasn't ready when we arrived at 2:30pm. Reception was apologetic and said the previous guests overstayed the 11am checkout and didn't leave until almost 1pm. We were fine to leave our bags in the car and go for a late lunch but we were left wondering if maybe they could have been a little stricter with enforcing checkout times for the previous guests??

We travelled off peak and mid week. Felt like we practically had the entire town to ourselves! Hotel was a great value, room was spacious and the view was spectacular! Activities and shopping were amazing. Restaurants were great. Enjoyed it very much, can't wait to go back again!

Room Tip: Was worth the little bit of extra $$ for a balcony room with a view

I was expecting more after reading the reviews here, but was a little disappointed. For $129/night I expected the beds to be at least comfortable. They were the saggiest things I've slept on in years and if you like fluffy pillows, you'll be disappointed. I woke up with a back ache every day and couldn't sleep. I stared at the lovely cedar ceiling all night long. This place looks pretty decent and quaint, but they seem more interested in appearances than what matters; giving your guests a comfortable place to sleep. If you don't have that, then who cares what the place looks like? They could also do a little better with the piddly continental breakfast, tiny muffins and coffee. Geez, how about some cereal and fruit? What a joke. And there is no microwave in most rooms or the lobby. They front desk guy finally let me use his microwave in the back after going on about how the owners don't want a microwave in the front lobby. He told me not to tell anyone I used his microwave, because he'll get 30 people asking. My gawd, if that many people want to use a microwave, then put one in the dang lobby!!! Geez. Another example of their focus on appearance than pleasing guests. At least it was clean and the location was good. But I'll try elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask if you want a room with a microwave.

Stayed just one night, but everything meets expectation. Clean, well maintained and like I said, no surprises. Very friendly Philipino lady at check in and check out was absolutely efficient. I wished the WiFi was singer in my room, but I made do. Interesting that there is a plug in airfresener in the room. It was nice, but unusual. The home made muffin was nice, but the coffee was really weak, more like colored water. Hey, it was free!

We returned to the Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Inn recently. We enjoy the area and especially this hotel. They gave us our same room again and the friendly staff is awesome. We also got to bring our dog as they are dog friendly. The hotel is convenient to all sites on Main St. Lake Placid is a great place to visit.
