Our second visit to Lake Placid for some skiing at Whiteface Mountain. Some people like luxury but we go for comfort and convenience. We love the downtown location of Northwoods. Many shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

Room tip: Pick a Lake Side room

The hotel is in a great location, but it’s old. The rooms are decorated nicely but they have window air conditioners/heaters and we can see the outdoors between the air conditioner/heater and the edge of the hole it’s placed in, although they taped that open area. The heat that comes out feels more like a cool breeze which isn’t so great when the temperature is between 0 and six degrees Fahrenheit.

Tim, the bartender at Delta Blue is fantastic!

Our room wasn’t so much cleaned as the bed was made and that was it. It was quite evident that the bathtub wasn’t even rinsed, let alone cleaned using cleaning supplies.

Don’t bother with the “buffet” - we only got it because our reservations included breakfast so that’s where we ate. The breakfast restaurant needs to be more organized. One day there was bread but they forgot to put out butter and the day they had waffles we had to ask for syrup.

Front desk staff is nice but you have to ring the bell because they’re usually in the back - they should have someone at the desk at all times.

There aren’t any amenities - no exercise room and if you need ice, you have to get it at the front desk.

We did the ski and stay package but I feel we overpaid for what’s offered here.

We went to NorthWoods just recently (February 2019). It is exceptionnaly well located on the Main Street in Lake Placid and has a beautiful lobby BUT we could NOT enjoy our stay because of how cold and noisy the room was... Even though it was very clean and well-equipped, the air from outside was coming right in from the balcony door. The room simply never warmed up throughout the night and the entire stay. Worse was probably the heater right next to the beds (and the only one in the room), which had to be constantly on and made a terrible loud noise which kept us from sleeping the both nights we were there. This hotel has a LOT of potential but the isolation in the rooms has clearly been completely neglected over the years. New heating systems, windows and sealed doors are urgently needed. If this is done, Northwoods will be great.

A wonderful place to stay. We visited during October to see the peak colors of fall. The staff was excellent. Clean rooms. Close to shops and restaurants. You will not be disappointed. I recommend the street side of the hotel.

We stayed here in October, peak leaf peeping weekend and enjoyed our stay. The fact that you are able to step onto Main Street in 2 mins from your room is ideal. The rear parking is small and tightly packed, so a large SUV may be tricky. Another plus was the lovely breakfast served downstairs in the morning, pleasant staff and ADK décor. The room was average in décor and cleanliness, but for the price we'd stayed again.
