This classic motel is a bargain and close to all the attractions in Lake Placid. The room was clean and comfortable. The office folks were friendly and helpful. I always prefer the local " pops" and this is a good one.More

No breakfast served. This is a motel (wood paneling and rustic feel). It falls under B&B category due to the small number of units.

We had room 11 on the second floor. It was a queen with kitchenette. It had a window with lake view, BUT a large tree blocked much of the view.
