Hotel's Favorite
We arrived a few days before Christmas to find the hotel deck out in Christmas lights, it felt like a Hallmark movie. We had a beautiful view of the lake and at night the firepit glowed brightly. The hotel was so convenient to shops and restaurants. We should have taken more advantage of the attached Generations happy hour, very good and very large drinks and the price perfect compared to some of the town prices. Staff were constantly cleaning and very polite and pleasant; lots of smiles all-around even on Christmas Eve! We used the hot tub daily - the big fluffy bathrobes were heavenly. After a rough year, it was exactly what we hoped for when booking a Christmas vacation.

We were underwhelmed by our visit in June 2022. The hotel itself is fine and it has nice grounds but the hotel appears to be doing renovations. During our stay one garage was closed and the one that was open was in use as a storage area for mattresses (not sure if they were new or old ones), wheelbarrows and debris. That left drivers trying to navigate piles of debris while trying to squeeze into parking spaces. Getting in and out of the hotel was very difficult because the front street was blocked by construction. Pedestrians need to dodge bulldozers and walk over rubble, impossible for those with strollers or mobility issues. Vehicles are parked right up to the building so the view from rooms is one of car bumpers. When I spoke to an employee she said “If you don’t like construction just turn around and look a different way”. When we checked out the clerk asked about our stay. When I replied that we were disappointed she shrugged and said she recommended a five dollar a day tip and asked to charge it directly to our credit card. She showed no interest in why we were disappointed, in fact, she didn’t even ask the reason. To be fair, there is mention of the construction on the website. But, it is on a subpage titled Perfecting Placid Updates which is hard to find unless you really go looking for it. Something as impactful as that construction should be on the main page where it is easily seen. The town is doing most of the construction but the hotel should be more forthcoming with guests. Overall, I felt we were not treated very nicely for the price we paid. The construction makes the area unsafe for seniors, people with mobility issues or anyone pushing a stroller. I would not recommend this hotel or the area until construction is completed.

GoingtoIsla, Thank you for your review. You are correct, the construction going on is being handled by the town of Lake Placid. They are completely renovating the entirety of Main Street Lake Placid and this is the third year of the construction (and we hope the last). Unfortunately, we have absolutely no control over the timing or work being done there and often do not hear about things until the day they are happening. It certainly is frustrating and I can empathize with your feelings. We do have listed in both confirmation you received and on our website. We definitely try to be transparent because we don't want people to be disappointed when they stay here. I am sorry you did not see it in any of those places. Starting on Friday the Main Street should be open again to two way traffic and construction pauses until after Labor Day. Then of course they have to halt in the winter because of all of the snow. We hope that this Fall will be the end of the major road construction. The crews have been working very hard and very efficiently. they are polite and helpful, but it will be nice when we get our town back again. We look forward to hosting you then. Sincerely Jenn Holderied GM

Our room is comfy & clean with outstanding housekeeping being done daily by Danny and Jessie. Our room over looks Mirror Lake and all the water sports they offer on their immaculate beach. The highlight was meeting “Cousin Vinnie” who not only took care to direct us to a super convenient parking garage but also on our second meeting checking in to see what he could do to be sure our visit was the best it could be. He is the type of person I would want for my business and quite an asset to Golden Arrow. This is my 3rd visit here and I continue to be impressed!!! Now off to enjoy the firepit down by the beach

Upon the recommendation of a relative, we recently stayed at the Golden Arrow Resort in Lake Placid. To describe the resort in two words, "Super Wow" This resort captures every amenity to create a dream vacation. Our room was lakeside with a lovely balcony overlooking the beach on Mirror Lake. It was completely updated, immaculately clean and decorated with nice furniture, two incredibly comfortable beds, a refrigerator, microwave oven and a bonus Keurig coffee maker. The bathroom is very large, well lit and bright with the latest fixtures. The restaurant and lounge offer reduced priced drinks at Happy Hour prices if you are a guest. I rate this hotel a five star with a price range that fits most budgets. Every single employee of the hotel has a smile and greeting for you. Also included with your stay is the use of kayaks, paddle board/boats, canoes, plenty of beach chairs, picnic tables and a gorgeous fire pit with a sitting area.. The Golden Arrow Resort goes way beyond the line of duty to make your visit very comfortable and enjoyable! .

Stayed overnight on a work trip, and my lakeside room had the perfect balcony for some R&R after a long day. The amazing front desk staff were warm, welcoming and so helpful. There were more amenities than I had time to enjoy, which just makes me want to come back! The room was spotless and the bed was so comfy I had to hit snooze a couple times. The hotel is literally in the middle of it all too—just steps from restaurants, bars, shopping, the lake, and the Olympics center. Will definitely be returning and bringing the whole family!

From the beautiful lakefront room to the complimentary wine and souvenir corkscrew, our stay was perfect. We arrived without a reservation and although the nightly rate was higher than we had budgeted, having stayed here before, I knew the room and the view were worth it. The customer service was fantastic with great attention to detail. Our room was clean and spacious with a beautiful view of Mirror Lake. Our romantic evening with a bottle of complimentary Bully Hill Wine, souvenir glasses, and corkscrew was made even better by the complimentary wood for the fire and a jacuzzi tub. We only stayed one night as we were off wandering around the Adirondacks the next morning, but we will stay longer to enjoy the amenities of the hotel when we come back again.

Such a homey wonderful retreat❣️❣️ I just loved all the attention to detail throughout this hotel. So many beautiful, quality features are seen and felt throughout. I enjoyed the heated pool area, which had a hot tub or two, saunas (wet, dry) 3 levels of rain shower. Just loved relaxing in there. The hotel is right on the water and that was sooooo AMAZING❣️❣️ you have to have a lake front room. We were blessed to be able to have the first floor lakefront room that even had a fire place in it. There was another fire-pit right outside in the shoe line. The wonderful staff came and lit it for us in the late afternoon as it was a bit chilly. The staff were such a pleasure to deal with in every aspect of our stay. From reservations, front desk, house keeping and looking for a lost item. We will definitely return. I LOVED the story of this family owned and run hotel 💚💛💜♥️❤️✨☀️🌟😇😇😇

We have stayed here for many stages of our lives - being single, married, with children and now grandchildren - also with work , family get togethers and just some alone time together. This past time we treated our adult children to a nice few days away for the day to day - and added on our new granddaughter. We had connecting rooms, which were as always spotless. We had two breakfasts at Generations and one dinner - always delicious and never have to go outside. We enjoyed the pool and just the beautiful lake right out our window - We will be back -

I stayed here during a hockey tournament and the location was perfect. The whole property staff was great and helpful. The room I stayed in (404) had a great view of Mirror Lake and was perfect for coming and going. The exit door in the hallway led right into the Alpine Mall and easy access to the street. The room was very clean and housekeeping kept everything up to par. I would love to stay at this property again!
