Have been a long time yearly visitor of Lake Placid. Really-- if you're a mountain person, or into cute little shopping towns with a little history and fame (Olympics) you'll be pleased with your visit. Looked to spend a quick weekend here with some friends who hadn't been before. Always try to travel on the cheap side when taking someone... More

We have been staying at Mountain View Inn for many years and truly enjoy it. Place is always clean, people are very pleasant and helpful. Very good price. It is convenient to everything. We like being able to park our car and walk all around the area.

The staff and facilities were great as was the location. We enjoyed the dog sled ride in spite of the weather (-29 Sunday am) The food at the Great Adirondack was outstanding as usual. I would also HIGHLY recommend "The Breakfast Club" but there is usually a wait but well worth it as far as quality and price!

The Mountain View Inn has a great Cottage that sits next to the hotel. If you have a party of 8 or less this is the perfect place. Right in the center of town. Across the street from Arrowhead Resort and Lake, next door to the 1932 Olympic Center. Movie theatre is 3 blocks away. Could not have been happier... More

We enjoyed our stay here 4 years ago during the holidays, although we had to deal with some noise issues. This time I booked farther in advance for 3 nights and made sure we got a room on the upper floor. In fact our king room (#69) was at the end of the hallway and felt a little more private.... More

Can't beat the locations and it's priced accordingly. The shower head is extremely low so you'll have to squat while showering and the heat is on or off, thermostat didn't work. Both those items are understandable at the price point. Our main problem is when we booked the room we were told we'd have a top floor double queen room.... More

I spent three nights at the Mountain View Inn and loved it. The room was neat and clean, with a beautiful view of the lake. The location was right by the Olympic Center where I would be spending most of my time, and right on Main St. which made it easy to find good meals. The price was very reasonable... More

Simple and easy location to get anywhere, reasonable cost and really nice gal at the front desk. Rooms are clean, bed comfy and walking distance to much. Parking a little tight going up the hill but no biggie !

If you are looking for a good location to stay that is walking distance to the shops and restaurants, this is the place. We only stayed here for one night and it was pouring rain the entire time so I might have enjoyed myself more if the weather had been better and could have explored instead of being cooped up...
