I never thought I would write a hotel review, but staying here was the best experience I ever had staying some where. Al treated us like we were his kids home from college, he was that caring and friendly. He gave us good tips and brought us the ski report for whiteface. They really go out of their way to be great hosts. I can't recommend this place enough.

We chose Mountain Brooke Lodge because of the reasonable price and that fact that Al and Alicia offered my boyfriend, an Iraq vet, a free night for his service. (How wonderful is that???!!!). We will return to Mountain Brooke Lodge because staying with Al and Alicia felt like visiting family. They are warm and welcoming. We actually got hugs from them when we arrived! Our room was spotless and very comfy, with memory foam beds and an hdtv. Breakfast has options for everyone, and Al left it out for us on the day we slept in :).
The hotel is quiet and close to all attractions.
We plan on making Mountain Brooke Lodge our hotel of choice for all trips back to the area.

I'm thinking of returning to the Adirondaks just so I can stay at the Mountain Brook Lodge again. Al & Alicia make you feel like you are staying with friends or family. The rooms have that wood panel Adirondak feel; but also have HDTV, minifridge, microwave & coffee maker. Our room even had a goldfish tank! The room was quiet (we couldn't hear our neighbors) and very clean with new carpet, new bed mattress & ample supply of towels. The included breakfast was suprisingly substantial with fresh bagels, english muffins, fresh fruit, hardboiled eggs, cereals & packaged pastries. We were able to get an extended checkout so that we could change in the room after skiing. Al & Alicia also pointed us to some very good local restaurants. This has to be one of the best motor inns that we have ever stayed in and the reasonable price makes it an excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for the corner room with the fish tank in it!

Firstly arriving at this place our expectation was low. The warm welcome of Al was refreshing and reassuring. The room was comfortable and very clean. We were very impressed overall and we will certainly come back. A sure value!

Our friends, who we were spending the weekend at Whiteface with, had stayed here last year and they made the reservations for us. As others have said, it was really comfortable and very homey. We had the best sleeps we've had at a hotel in ages - the beds are so comfy! We were really pleased with breakfast, although would have liked it to start at 7 so we could get to the hills earlier, but it was all good. Excellent value for your money, and the Armstrongs are great hosts that are truly out to make sure that you're happy while staying with them. We will definitely be going back to see our new friend Little Buddy and the rest of the Armstrong family. Thanks Al & Alica!

Great place to stay. Al treats you like a good friend during your whole stay. I stayed here for three nights while skiing Whiteface. The accommodations are homey and comfortable. Robust continental breakfast and dependable coffee. Best prices and stellar value. When I left three days later I felt like I had a new friend and would gladly return when I'm in the area again. You will not go wrong by staying at Mountain Brook Lodge.

I booked this based on the reviews. It was a one night stop over on our way to Vermont coming from Toronto. I knew we would stay in the Lake Placid area but didn't want to pay the Lake Placid prices. Found this place on trip advisor and was a little weary due to the price. Can't beat the price but often you get what you pay for....not in this case. What a small gem we found. Wonderful. Really friendly owners....when we arrived asked if we wanted a glass of wine or beer on the house. We declined as it was late and we had a long drive behind us and the following day. Cute little rooms...very clean which for the prices you just never know what you might get. The rooms were not fancy but that is not what we wanted. Next day great continental breakfast. Fresh coffee, bagels, pastries, cereal. They had it all. Cute gift shop, very homey. Love the dog bambam. The owners really made you feel at home, home away from home. $85 ...tax included just over $100. I have stayed at places that cost much more and have had to complain about the dirt or just felt unsafe. Would come back for sure.
