The hotel is old but rooms remodeled last year. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Staff was accommodating and helpful. Parking was limited but we managed. Room was spacious and extremely comfortable. Loved this place I will be back to Lake Placid -more peaks to climb and will definitely stay here again. Great location Easy access to everything!

The biggest drawback, if u dont like loud band music, dont get a room on the street side. Having a room look over a boring parking lot would have been better. Even the clanky, loud air conditioner didnt drown out the noise . Other than that, room seemed clean. Fyi, they charge u an incidental fee in case u break... More

Just want to start off with warning about the limited parking space. I did not see that until I checked in. I checked in at 4pm and I was lucky enough to get the last parking space which was not really a parking space along the walls. Then I was worried about the next few days where will I park??... More

Stayed here for two nights. Check-in was easy and friendly. The room had two double beds on the back side of the hotel overlooking the parking lot and a wall of lush vegetation. Bathroom was on the small side but functional. Room was clean, beds were super comfortable with lots of pillows. HD flatscreen tv in the bedroom. There was... More

I am shocked about the bad reviews. I only paid, not even $140/night and THAT was for an upgraded room with a lake room (save the $20/night and skip...you are seeing the lake beyond roof tops and we did not spend enough time in the room to really care about the partial view). This hotel blows the rest of the... More

We stayed for one night on a Monday. We booked through a Groupon so the rate was reasonable. We arrived just after check-in started and just managed to get a parking spot on-site - most guests need to park in a municipal lot just down the street. The structure has lots of original character (e.g., cool elevators) with updated décor.... More

The hotel is very clean. Bathrooms are updated. Beds are very comfortable. Rooms have a refrigerator and microwave. Spacious rooms. Quiet hotel. Centrally located right on Main Street. Only downfall is limited parking, however a general lot was very close by.

Slightly dated decor, sticky doors, banisters and walls, and all rather tired. But the room was clean and bed comfortable. Sink took 5 minutes to drain presumably owing to 30 years of pubic hair. $150 plus taxes plus $35 for the dog. So not super cheap for a dated hotel, but you are on Main street yet get a quiet...

The hallways smell fine, but as soon as I opened the door to our actual room, I immediately thought it smelled weird. It smelled exactly like a nursing home. In fact, I think it smelled a lot worse than most nursing homes. It smelled like stale vomit. I visited in July, so the air conditioner was running, and I think... More
