“Great location; great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2010

Mountain view was in a perfect location close to everything. The room was nice -- not gorgeous but clean and spacious. We loved getting away to Lake Placid and I would not hesitate to stay at the Mountain View Inn again. My only complaint was the heat was hard to regulate. Other than that, it was fine.

The Mountain View Inn is a great location within Lake Placid. It is a very short walking distance to cute little shops on main street and the movie theater. The view from our room was beautiful! The owner is friendly and helpful and the room was clean and fresh smelling. The beds were firm and comfortable, the bathroom new and well kept. In short, it is a good deal for a reasonable price. No skimping on hygiene, no ratty rug, no feeling cheap or pathetic for wanting to save money. The only thing I would have added, was scrapping ice off the driveway so it would not be slippery when walking out. But that being said, from our room we could see car after car slipping downhill while trying to get out of the garage of the Golden Arrow on their rather steep ramp. The Mountain View Inn parking was much easier to get in and out of. Oh! and walk only 20 or so steps and the Whiteface Mountain shuttle will pick you up! Lake Placid is absolutely lovely!

Spent New Year's Eve and weekend in LP. The Mtn View Inn was in a great location right on Main street. Easy walking to restaurants, shops, Olympic Center & ice rinks. Lovely evening skating on outdoor speed skating oval. Fantastic nordic skiing just a few miles up the road. Innkeepers were very inviting yet not intrusive. Great view of lake and mountains. Would definitely return.

Great place. Friendly, clean and helpful. Would absolutely stay again. Best location right in town and between shopping and athletic facility. Walkable either way.

This was a return visit for myself and friends to Lake Placid. We were fortunate to be able to book our ( a group of 10 this time) return and stay at the Mountain View. Carol was a most hospitable host and met all of our needs with a smile. We would return again for the affordable and clean and cozy surroundings which were well located within walking distance of all the amenities of Lake Placid. My friends and I say "thanks" for making us feel welcome AGAIN!

Looking to spend our 5 year anniversary in the artic north, the wife and I decided to return to Lake Placid. Not having tons of money to burn, I seeked something affordable yet not beneath my wife's standards. Lo and behold, the Mountain View Inn: affordable, clean, comfortable and located right in the heart of Main Street. The room was spacious with a high ceiling, impeccably clean, and it provided us with a nice view of the lake and Main Street, which was all lit up for the Holidays. The bathroom and carpeting looked relatively new. A microwave, coffee maker and mini-fridge were provided. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, giving us a great tip for dinner (not to mention a swell Scott Hamilton poster!). The parking lot is limited, space wise, but I nabbed a good spot when we arrived and didn't move the car again until our departure. I will make a small mention that the walls are a tad thin and you can hear your neighbors pretty clearly at times, especially when they are using the bathroom the same time you are (gross!). Mercifully, I am a sound sleeper, so this wasn't that big of a deal, but I guess it could have been if the people next store were being unruly. But what the heck, you can't have everything! It's cheap, it's clean, it's cozy, it's just what we were looking for! We will absolutely be staying at the Mountain View Inn the next time we return to Lake Placid, and I will sing their praises far and wide to all who will listen.

We really enjoyed our weekend and Mountain View Inn had everything we needed at a price that can't be beaten: clean, large rooms, friendly service, great central location (which obviously means some noise on a Saturday night but the Inn is a little removed from the street so it was nothing too loud). The view from the second floor was beautiful even though there is a small building between you and the lake. I recommend staying there unless you're looking for business facilities (conference rooms, etc) or luxury (spa, etc).
