“Won't stay here again!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

The owner was very unpleasant. When we arrived the heat was off and it was freezing. The beds were uncomfortable and very outdated. When we went for an outing the next day when we came back the owner had come into clean but turned the heat off again. I gave it two stars because the place is clean and close to village. I would not stay here again.

From the moment we walked in, and before we said a single word, the owner was unpleasant. It started as we got there 15 minutes before the 2 PM checkin... She told us to leave and come back in 15 minutes!

We should have left permanently, but we said that maybe she was having a bad day, and came back 30 minutes later.

The room (#6) had a bad smell, but we said maybe we'll get used to it. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was very small and noisy (from street noise). The TV was an antique. The bath was clean but very small and dated.

We had reserved for three nights and went in the morning after the first night saying we were checking out now, and were canceling the next two nights. They were very angry and refused. We offered them extra cash compensation for their trouble. They refused. We left anyway.

BTW, we were traveling with another couple and they stayed in room #12, and had similar problems. They also cancelled and got the same rude, uncooperative treatment.

We have stayed in several Lake Placid motels before and have never had these experiences. Our recommendations for inexpensive places are The Pines Inn and Schultes.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

The Town & Country hotel is a cute place! The decor is straight out of the 80s; it doesn't look like the hotel's been renovated since the Olympics. For us, that just added to the charm. Everything was impeccably clean and the room was very large, and even included a small balcony with a table and chairs. It took about 5 - 10 minutes to walk to the main tourist area of Lake Placid and was only a 20 minute drive to some amazing hiking!

The only negative was some soundproofing issues: we could hear the guests in the room above us walking around. Otherwise, great motel.

We had a very nice stay here last month, July, 2012. The owners were very kind, and the property was kept in very good, clean condition. We liked that they had a pool. It seems like most of the smaller hotels in Lake Placid did not have a pool, and the kids love a pool. They had free Wi-fi, which worked well. I will defintiely return to Town and Country. Very much in the middle of town, very close to everything. The Cowboy has great food, very close, and the Saranac Sourdough deli was close and had fantastic sandwiches.

This is a neat, clean, well-kept place outside the bustle of downtown L Placid, opposite homes and a lake, given it a peaceful aura. Nice owners, close to restaurants (we dug The Cowboy). A good place to stay.

Reasonably priced little motel in a great location. Smaller rooms, but didn't really matter to us, we didn't spend alot of time in it. Convenient for walking, but away from the busy-ness of the town. Would stay there again.

The owner was exceptionally helpful. We were close to town, and we had easy access to everything. The room was a bit small for 2 people and all the IM gear, but it works. Rooms were very clean. Ask for bikes- there are 2 for the taking at no charge and the owner provided a lock.
