“Very nice and moderately priced”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My husband and I stayed 2 nights (room 53) with our dog in a dog friendly room for New Years Eve. We booked online so we weren't sure what to expect. We were very happily surprised! The hotel is located in the town center-walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room was recently renovated and very clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Although it is a basic hotel without extras, it met our needs perfectly.

To be specific, we stayed in Room 39. It was beautiful, immaculate, king sized bed, the bathroom was sparkling clean and very pretty with a very nice shower. The linens were clean and comfy and the TV was awesome. There is nothing we didn't like. I am hard to please when it comes to hotels, motels and motor inns. We never stayed at a Motor Inn. We plan on going back there again. The folks at the front desk were very, very nice. I can't speak for all the other rooms but ours was great. I made a note so that we could ask for the same room next time.

The room was old and dingy. The lighting was extremely dim, I had to ask the front desk for an extra lamp so that we could read our guide books. Also, the light outside our door was out, so it was difficult to lock/unlock the door at night.

I wish there were more options for travelers with dogs. Basically, you must either camp or stay in a dirty, overpriced place.

Room Tip: I cannot speak for non-dog friendly rooms. But beware that the dog-friendly rooms are dingy, poorly...

My wife and I have been visiting Lake Placid, winter and summer, for over 15 years. And, we have stayed in all manner of accommodation, from the Relais Chateau hotel to the bottom of the list. We have been at Art Devlin's in the past, but our recent visit was special--they have done serious renovations in all of the rooms using superior fixtures in the bathrooms and "European-style" wood trimming in the rooms. The doors are solid wood. The bedding is a big cut above motels in the same price range. Some visitors may disparage the location, at the edge of the village, preferring locations more centric. But Devlin's is an easy walk to everywhere and has ample free parking. Moreover it has a couple of Lake Placid secrets just a few steps away. One is Johnny's pizza which has quality and price. (The big name pizza parlor equally close is also good.) The other, believe it or not, is the gas station at the crossroads: it has 5 spigots of original micro-brewed beer and empty growlers to accommodate; besides, a wide-range of bottle beer. The Olympic oval is a few blocks away. Devlin's won't disappoint.

We had an "upscale" room on the second floor. Huge! With a king bed and two huge recliners, one would think it might be crowded. View of the mountains through the sliding door. Clean, fresh smelling rooms. Excellent staff. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Second floor facing mountains. With balcony. Ask for "upscale room" .

Art Devlin's is a comfortable, convenient and affordable option when visiting Lake Placid. Its situated on the main street so its close to everything. The hotel room exceeded our expectations. We had an "upscale" room on the first floor with view of the ski jump and mountains. Room was huge and very comfortable overall with two queen size beds, a recliner, as well as a small table with two chairs. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was large and modern. Room also has a fridge and microwave. Everything was super clean and fresh. There are complimentary coffee/tea & muffins in the morning. The motel also offers free wi-fi and free parking. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. We would stay here again!

For a 6 night stay, we had an "upscale" room on the second floor, with view of the ski jump and far off mountains. Nice to sit on the balcony in the afternoon. Room was huge and very comfortable for such a long stay. Beds comfortable, but pillows were foam and a bit flat. Bathroom was large and modern - sliding doors instead of curtain on the tub. Large TV screen and frig. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff - let me print my boarding pass on the office computer. Coffee/tea & muffins in the morning. Walking distance to town if you are a walker - easier than finding a parking space! Free wi-fi! We would stay here again!
