My husband and i visited in October. We rented a kitchenette room. Our booking was sort-of last minute ,so we did not get a "lake -view". The reviews suggest that the lake view is very good. The location is excellent. There is a rite-aid right across the street. Wildwood is 1 mile away from main street where most of the restaurants/pubs etc are. Even though it is on one of the busier streets , the room was nice and quiet. I actually liked the fact that it was not directly on main street as the traffic was significant on main street.
The room was very clean and all the amenities provided.
The only cons might be that the rooms are a little dated with somewhat dim lighting and the electric stove is just a little above adequate. This did not bother us much as it was just me and hubby and the amenities were all there. After all the idea was to spend more time outside than in the room. It is more than adequate to cook a one-pot meal. The only weird placement in the room was the mini refrigerator. The electrical cord blocked the fridge door somewhat. (that is nit-picking i guess)
They have a whirlpool tub, which is very nice. New towels were provided every day. There is a service ,if you want your linen changed.
Their cancellation policy involves no refund of the downpayment if room is cancelled less than 2 weeks prior to arrival.
They offer free canoes, paddles etc. We did not use those.
Pros - good location. clean rooms. kitchenette rooms available. pharmacy/grocery very close. Spot on for the budget. (rooms in lake placid area are not that cheap)
cons - slightly dated room (but not much of an issue. all amenities available) , stove top just about adequate.
would certainly stay there again.
