“Stay here!”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

This is our second time staying at Art Devlin's and I will make this my home every time I return to LP/Whiteface. Last year we stayed in the suite because we wanted to cook in a few nights. The suite is huge, impeccably decorated, and very cozy and comfortable. We can't say enough about it. This year we decided to stay in an upscale room. Once again the room is huge, very clean, tastefully decorated, very nice views, large deck, large fridge, closet space, etc. The staff is very friendly; the upscale speciality rooms were booked for the weekend we were here but the first night we were here it was vacant so they let us take a peak. OMG enough said I will treat myself to one of these rooms next time. Art is very friendly and has done a terrific job restoring this Inn. He went out of his way to inform us of local area attractions, free shuttle to Whiteface, etc. The breakfast is basic so if you want a place with a hearty breakfast stay elsewhere but if you want a top notch lodging experience at an affordable price stay here. Kudos Art!!!

The hotel is extremely average but definitely comfortable enough to save a few bucks. No amenities, poor lighting, but very clean and just down the road from Main Street. Our friends had a suite, however, and it was absolutely amazing - fully stocked kitchen, wrap-around balcony, very much mondern, and beautiful ceilings. Sorry - I don't know how much they paid.

I do have to say though, considering our visit was in January, I wish they would pay to have their parking lot plowed and salted. I also heard that the free donuts and muffins at the front desk aren't much to wake up for either.

End result - if I don't have another hundred bucks a night to splurge on one of the upper clas hotels, I would book a room again. Thanks Art Develin for a clean room to sleep in... but not for much else.

Stayed here 2 nights on trip around New York State with wife and 2 teenage sons.
Spacious clean room in good location and very reasonable rate. We had an upgraded standard room which was very pleasant and had a view of the mountains from the balcony.
The pool was very nice and was very clean despite strong winds the day before we arrived.
The owner was very helpful and friendly and gave advice regarding the roads as we were travelling just after a hurricane had caused damage through much of Vermont and parts of New York State. Other staff members were also very pleasant and helpful and the whole place had a pleasant relaxed feel.

we have stayed here twice now and each time the room, views and location is perfect. we stayed in the "spacious suite" this time and it has everything you could ever want for a "home away from home" the wrap around deck has beautiful views of the high peaks. Plenty of room for a family. We will not stay any where else in the area.

Room Tip: for the rates they have spend the extra for an upgraded room.

We stayed here in August 2011 for 5 nights. I normally stick to better known chain hotels, due to the total uncertainty of private places. However, the area was pretty much booked up or thru the roof on rates. When I read all the reviews on trip advisor & I believe Art Devlin's had the #1 rating I took the chance, & we are so glad we did. They have completely renovated, beautiful rooms, loved all the knotty pine ceiling, large bath with beautiful stone tile. The whole place was spotless, I even noticed one day on our balcony that the top of the ac unit was wiped clean& I was able to put something down on it. The pool was very nice. The people were all super friendly & accomodating & the homemade muffins every morning was a great touch. I really have a little OCD with hotel rooms, however, this place passed it all with flying colors & then some. They are just a stones throw form Olympic skating center, i have problems walking but we were within a couple minutes of it so location was great too. We will definitely use them again in the future.
