Had a great experience here! Amy and Wayne were friendly and attentive. The room was clean and cozy, with warm sheets and respectful neighbors. The warm breakfast was appreciated before our winter hike up whiteface mountain. Thanks so much and we look forward to the next trip!

We stayed for two nights in January for a long weekend of cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The ADK Trail Inn staff were all super friendly, the room was cozy (and each room is different), and the breakfast was great. The location-- nestled right in the high peaks-- is

Me and my daughter and my dog Chihuahua stayed in ADK Trail Inn for 2 nights in January 2019. We loved this place, very clean and comfortable. We also had a microwave and a small fridge in the room. The location was excellent, could access many hiking trails within 15 to 20

I feel the hotel was cozy and seen some work being done to the place. I spoke with Wayne the owner when I checked in the first night and seemed like he really genuinely wants people to have a nice stay. Was told breakfast was at 8 am. Showed up at 8:30 the first morning, and

Response from Wayne-Amy-S, Owner at ADK Trail Inn
Responded Oct 23, 2018
Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We're glad you enjoyed chatting with Wayne (he enjoyed it too!) and appreciated our clean and affordable rooms. We sincerely apologize that your breakfast experience did not reflect our usual high level of customer service! Just for clarification ... when we only have a few rooms rented (such as the mornings you stayed), we offer breakfast at a set time instead of our usual time span. This is communicated at check-in or via a personal note on a guest's door. Having a pre-set breakfast time enables us to keep our rates affordable since we aren't paying staff to sit there for hours waiting for 3-4 guests to trickle in. In addition to the daily hot entree (which is made in proportion to how many guests we expect), our buffet always includes a variety of cereals, fruits, yogurts, breads and an assortment of juices, coffee and tea. When you arrived 20-30 minutes later than the set time, it is reasonable that some of the food prepared may have been consumed by those who were on time. This also explains why our staff began clearing food at 8:40 - once all registered guests had eaten, however, they should have asked if you need anything else before clearing the food! We apologize that you felt our staff was unavailable and short with you. That is completely unacceptable and we've addressed it in detail with her. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope you'll give us another try!

"Daybreak room has about 15 stairs you need to climb and is the only room that is on the second floor."
"Pick one of the upgraded rooms."
"2 of the rooms have kitchenettes, so if you want to stay in for dinner after a long day of hiking or skiing that is a plus."
"I prefer the two rooms that are in the main building."
