“Old style great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

This old fashioned motel is nothing to look at, but the rooms are huge, they have all the amenities (including a 'fridge) they are spotlessly clean, and the service is great! What more can you ask for? Its the perfect place to stay before and after hiking the adirondack peaks

I had planned on staying by myself and not bringing my family the night before the Lake Placid Marathon, but ended up bringing my wife and two kids, 6 and 9. The kids loved the dolphin- shaped pool. The room, while not newly decorated, wasn't bad. Location was good, close enough to everything we wanted to do. Nothing fancy but fine--and inexpensive.

Been there with my boyfriend a couple of years ago. The only purpouse of the trip was to visit White Face Mtn. This Hotel has a good fare and its ok for people who travel through or want to stay for a few days.

This is an average hotel. There's nothing fancy about it but here's what I really like:

It is reliable. I stay here usually at least once a month. When I arrive here I know what I'm getting. It might not be the cleanest place in town but it is comfortable and there has not been anything that has disgusted me yet. It is a budget hotel. If you go in with that expectation you will not be disappointed.

The staff are friendly and courteous. The breakfast is free and efficient. The pool is cool. I appreciate the fact that they are a national chain for which you can earn reward points.

All in all I think this is one of the best values in town.

Room Tip: Ask for an interior hallway room - less noise.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

When booking a hotel for President's Day weekend, the Econolodge was about 1/2 the price of other area hotels. Considering I was traveling with 3 teenage boys, I decided minimum comfort would do. I was pleasantly surprised with the large size of the rooms and unexpected services available, such as WiFi and a hot breakfast, The pool and hot tub were in better condition than those of pricier hotels we have stayed at in the area. As most of our trip was spent at Whiteface or visiting friends in the area, we did not mind being outside the village.

Room Tip: Extra $10 for room with an interior corridor is worth it.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed the Pool and Hot Tub. I hope your sons did as well. I did want to bring to your attention that there is a Free Local Trolley service that does stop at the hotel that would bring your family into town instead of driving.

Thank you so much for your business and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

Location of the hotel is not the best... Have to drive to get on the main street where all the restaurants and pubs are...room was very clean, had everything we needed... Pool and hot tub were amazing.. Specially after a long day snowboarding... Breakfast was very disappointing, the waffle machine was very busy.. One morning had to wait for 20 minutes to get a waffle.
