We rolled into Lake Placid without any hotel reservations made in advance, not sure if we wanted to stay there. We chose the Summit Hotel using the hotelcoupons.com coupon book (available on the NY Thruway and at many tourist info spots throughout the region) after checking a couple of other places first (no vacancy). The four of us were able to get a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite for a base price of $180/night, which kept us within our budget. I would especially like to compliment Diane (?), who was nice enough to show us the room before we committed (the place was filling up). The general comments about the hotel needing renovation are true. It's a bit worn out. But, it wasn't dirty and it wasn't a dump. There were a lot of cosmetic annoyances (small holes and dents in the bathroom walls and the like), but the necessities were there. The hotel's location is actually fantastic, being just off the end of the happening strip of stores and restaurants and overlooking the lake (I think it's Mirror Lake). So, walking to shopping and eating was easy, a lot easier than taking the car (parking's tight). Free parking at the hotel is also a little tight, so claim a spot early and don't give it up. The hotel's restaurant was closed, but there were plenty of places to eat a short walk away. Wi-Fi worked fine for us in the room. Check-in and check-out were not a problem. I would have to agree with the reviewer that said it wasn't as bad as some reviews make it sound. It's not the Crowne Plaza. But, we were satisfied with what we got for what we paid. And, we were thankful there was an opening for our one night in Lake Placid.
