My family stayed there Julu 01-4 for 3 nights. It was great.
Beach was great for kids, safe and easy to watch over them.
Front desk people were great. The front desk woman from Edgewater NJ was very nice and great to deal with.

We go to Lake Placid yearly to attend the Lake Placid horse show. Last year we stayed in a different hotel, but I had my eye on the Golden Arrow because of the beach front and location over looking the lake. So this year we spent the extra money to stay here and it was worth it!

The kids loved having the option to swim in the pool or the lake. They supply a bunch of paddle boards, kayaks and other water activities. It does get busy and it was hard to find a chair, but we were fine to relax on the lawn by the beach.

Our dog travels with us and we found that they were very accommodating of him. (He got treats at check in!)

The view from our room was beautiful. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were quite spacious. It was also nice to have a fridge and microwave. Our only complaint is that the pillows were too soft for our liking.

All of the staff were friendly, accommodating and they made excellent recommendations for places to eat etc.

The highlight of our stay was being able to enjoy the wonderful 4th of July fireworks in our pajamas right from our balcony!

We will definitely be staying here again next year!

In June 2018 I was headed to Lake Placid for a conference, and went hunting for hotels. Golden Arrow was first on my list.

Then I ended up spending two hours trying, and failing, to get a reservation. Not because they had no vacancies, but because the staff and their website kept frustrating my attempts.

I spent two (2) hours online and on multiple phone calls. First, a phone call, which placed me on hold for a long time, then dumped me into voicemail (I left detailed information; they didn't call back). Second, a chat session on their website. The staff member was multitasking between me and some number of other people, and clearly couldn't devote attention to me, as he frequently went silent for long periods of time. After a longer while he claimed to have scored a reservation for me... but told me I'd need to make a phone call to get it after all, meaning he'd just wasted my time and attention. He did solicit my sympathy because he was dealing with too many customers, and wasn't interested in how he'd fruitlessly burned up hours of my life.

I called several more times and went through the same process as before: long hold times, then voicemail without result.

Ultimately I just gave up and went with another hotel (Crowne Plaza, and it was very good: recommended). The next day I called and actually got through to a human being. They were apologetic, but couldn't help me, as they didn't have a manager on site, even though it was business hours.

It's an example of one of the great business problems that customers encounter - when we try to give a firm money, and they make it as hard as possible. How strange and frustrating.

Hi Bryana332,

Thank you for the review. We apologize that you had this experience while trying to make a reservation as it is very atypical. The summer, however, is our busiest season so we do have higher call volume. In order to fill this need we do have new staff in training so that may explain some of the slower response times.

We do our best to ensure a great customer experience, which I'm sure you'll see from our other reviews here on Tripadvisor. We apologize that you had this experience and will do our best to ensure this doesn't happen in the future. We hope you enjoyed your time in Lake Placid, and we hope you give us a chance on your next visit.

Best,

Joell Stetson

The Golden arrow has variety of room types for families, couples and the single traveler.They have inside pool and fitness center. We went for our anniversary weekend and the weather was prefect, the lake side beach was lovely. They offer kayaks, canoes, paddle boards,etc at no extra charge. Mirror Lake is a no mother boat lake which makes distance swimming and boating wonderful. Generations is attached and has great meals. The hotel has received many eco friendly awards. Great place for any season.

Room tip: The lobby is on the 3rd floor. The ground floor (1) has walk out rooms to the lake.

We came by motorcycle! We were able to park in the hotels parking garage so if it rained, the bike would have been dry. The hotel was absolutely amazing, perfect accommodations, beautiful views and great location being right on the lake and right in town. Everything we needed was within walking distance from the hotel. Many restaurants, shopping, night life and even a laundromat. The view from the restaurant was beautiful and the food was delicious. We will definitely stay here again. All pros no cons, We loved it!,

Room tip: We had room 123; lake front, with patio, close to beach, water activities and fire pit.
