From the moment we walked in, and before we said a single word, the owner was unpleasant. It started as we got there 15 minutes before the 2 PM checkin... She told us to leave and come back in 15 minutes!
We should have left permanently, but we said that maybe she was having a bad day, and came back 30 minutes later.
The room (#6) had a bad smell, but we said maybe we'll get used to it. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was very small and noisy (from street noise). The TV was an antique. The bath was clean but very small and dated.
We had reserved for three nights and went in the morning after the first night saying we were checking out now, and were canceling the next two nights. They were very angry and refused. We offered them extra cash compensation for their trouble. They refused. We left anyway.
BTW, we were traveling with another couple and they stayed in room #12, and had similar problems. They also cancelled and got the same rude, uncooperative treatment.
We have stayed in several Lake Placid motels before and have never had these experiences. Our recommendations for inexpensive places are The Pines Inn and Schultes.
