Your host, Lou, will make your stay always as comfortable as possible. The rooms are lovely and immaculate. Many rooms have hardwood floors which is a huge bonus for allergy suffers. The motel has a lovely view of Wilmington Mt. And conveniently located to restaurants and local attractions. This Is a great find.

The Grandview is a clean, quiet motel in a beautiful surrounding town. The owner was also very obliging and helpful. For example, when I stopped along the route, he provided me with directions and made sure that I knew where I was going (it can get slightly confusing to get to Wilmington from the Northway if you've never done it...

Try to find a place to stay in the Adirondack Mountains in August on short notice - almost impossible. Except if you call The Grand View Motel in Wilmington and ask for the Owner - Lou. He had two rooms ready for us in no time. Beautiful setting, comfortable rooms and great hospitality. Better yet, the Grand View is a...

The room was dated but it was very clean and pleasant. I would recommend this motel if you're in need of a decent place to...

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend( Victoria Day in Canada). While the motel is dated it is very clean and the whole facility well kept. There is an outside pool( not open yet-too early) and Adirondack chairs to sit under an ancient tree and watch the world go by.( Or see Whiteface Mountain just beyond) We had...
