My husband and I love spending time in Lake Placid. Our son went to Paul Smith's College, we have visited the area in all four seasons. This was our first stay at the Mountain View Inn, it was a last minute idea for a weekend away. And the both of us agree, we will return! The location for the price is great! We enjoyed sitting on the deck area and watching the main street. Hope to return in the fall!

Although on the wrong side of the road from Mirror Lake, rooms have a good view over the top of the low level hotel in front. Plenty of parking and you can walk to the many excellent restaurants on the main street. Rooms are a good size. Coffee available all day from the lobby.

We have been staying at the Mountain View Inn for 3 years in a row so far. We plan to go back every year. We stop at the Mountain View Inn, Lake Placid every year for a few days before heading home. We normally have a busy schedule for a few days in Lake George and we need some time to just relax. We find that the Mountain View Inn is the place to be. It's nice and quite even though the Americade is going on.

Most of all we love the owners Vic, Carol and Kari. They always make our stay pleasant. They are so accomodating. The rooms are great. All you need is there. The view is breathtaking. You see the lake, the mountains, and the main strip.

I would highly recommend it to everyone. We are also thinking of going back again soon for a long weekend with some friends.

I recently returned from a fun and relaxing weekend in Lake Placid, and I cannot say enough great things about our stay at the Mountain View Inn. Location, Location, Location - the Mountain View Inn is right in the middle of everything on Mirror Lake Dr. in Lake Placid. Restaurants, stores, and the Olympic Museum are all within walking distance. You can pretty much walk anywhere and enjoy the night life and leave your car parked for free at the Inn. Other reviewers complained that the parking lot was sloped and that there were limited spaces, but there is another parking lot just below and in front with spaces labeled as parking for Mountain View Inn.

Unless you're a millionaire, Mountain View Inn should be your place of lodging in the Lake Placid area. At $140 a night for 2 guests, a queen sized bed, and a killer view of Mirror Lake and the Adirondacks, you cannot go wrong. Each room also has a balcony. You could pay more than double that with some of the other lodging options within walking distance. It is also family owned and the owners were pleasant, polite, and helpful in recommending area attractions. A word to the wise - you will notice rates are exactly the same for 1 Queen or 1 King sized bed. Go with the Queen - they are all up on the second floor and provide a better view.

Don't believe the nay-sayers! Other reviewers also complain about only having coffee available in the lobby (rather than a continental breakfast) in the mornings or the low shower heads. Who cares? You're not in Lake Placid to take a shower! With the Mountain View Inn, you get friendly staff, great location, large comfortable rooms, each fitted with a balcony, and it won't make you poor. As an added bonus, there was free high speed internet. I will be staying at the Mountain View Inn again, and highly recommend it to friends, family, and strangers alike.

We didn't actually end up staying because plans changed, but we were pleasantly surprised by the great service we received when we were simply inquiring about room rates. We would have loved to stay if our plans remained!
