“Will be staying again!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Me and my fiance took a weekend getaway for our anniversary, and stayed at Wildwood. We booked a suite, and the room was clean, and very cute. Our bed was super comfortable. We had a nice view, but I wish we were on the other side, as we would have then had a full unobstructed view, however, I was not disappointed at all. Checking in and out was quick and convienent. We will absolutely be staying again, and recommend Wildwood to anyone traveling to Lake Placid.

We had driven past this place before but never considered staying till the need arose of an economical place for Christmas week. Rooms were comfy and off an inside corridor which was good for cold weather. Price included muffins, danish and coffee for breakfast. I forgot my bathing suit but indoor pool and hot tub were nice and clean. The place is on Lake Placid and summer looks to be an ideal time to be here. My only issue was the grey shade of the smaller towels but the tan bath towels were great! The proprietors were very accomodating and helpful. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: I think all rooms face the lake but ask.

We stayed 5 days over the holiday break. Our room looked out on lake placid with a fireplace and kitchenette. Had an adjoining room with seperate bathroom perfect for our 14 year old boys. The staff was great. They even let us borrow their sleds, gave us a can of pam to make them go faster and then let us use the pool area to change and shower being that our flights left so late in the evening. 10 minute walk to town, grocery right down the street. Great location and value. Great family friendly place!

Stayed 5 days in cabin 7 and felt like we were staying with friends or relatives. The homey atmosphere is great for families and we settled right in. Had a great view of the lake, made a snowman, enjoyed the fireplace and movies. Great location across from Riteaid and just down the road from a large grocery store. It was nice not being on the main street. The bonfire our last night was an extra nice treat for us.

This was our second stay within a year and it was fantastic. Great view of the lake. Reasonably priced. Friendly accommodating staff. Clean rooms. Ours had a jacuzzi which we used after our walks into town and back.We even had a fire place which added nicely to the ambiance of our entire experience. Great for families and groups as well as just a get away for couples. Pharmacy across the street and one of the original Howard Johnson's restaurants next door for breakfast. Thank you Weber's see you soon.

Room Tip: Lake views are truly beautiful

We selected this hotel because of its proximity to Main Street and its good value. We were not disappointed.

It was very cozy and clean. Our room was nice and a had a lake view from the balcony. In the evening we hung out in the lodge's common room and unwound from the work week over hot cider, books and knitting.

And it was a quick walk to the town. As another reviewer had mentioned, Stuart was a fantastic host. We chatted with him for a bit about the town and the town's history. In addition, we didn't have a car, so the next day he drove us from the hotel to the airport so we didn't have to take a taxi. It was very kind of him.

We look forward to coming back!
