Art Devlin's staff were so delightful and helpful from start to finish -- booking the room, checking in, dining recommendations and departing. The rooms were retro and spotless. Very comfortable. Walking distance to town. Our large dog was traveling with us and was very happy.....and she has very discriminating tastes! We highly recommend Art Devlin's!

Stayed here one night while passing through Lake Placid...this is the best value in town and this place is also spotless...not a speck anywhere inside or out. I would stay here again anytime.

My husband booked us a room here at the motor inn so we could have a reasonable place to stay while in Lake Placid. I was afraid of the title of "motor inn" but our room was a really nice surprise. Most importantly, the room was spotlessly clean. It had a cathedral ceiling, comfy king size bed, huge flat screen TV, and amazingly huge bathroom with granite counter tops, a jacuzzi tub and HUGE walk-in shower that could easily fit 6 people, no joke. We had our own private balcony so at night we had a fantastic view of the supermoon - 5-5-12. It's pet friendly so our golden retriever was welcome and also appreciated the spacious lodging. The staff is very friendly and went out of their way to be nice to us. Every morning they have coffee, tea, muffins and donuts out in the lobby. We tried to book more weekends this summer but they were all booked up for the dates we were hoping. Oh well, we'll have to book early for next year!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the cathedral ceiling, and walk-in shower. It's well worth the added cost.

We stayed again at Art Devlin’s with a couple of friends. This time we rented the apartment for a weekend, and it was absolutely amazing. We had the feeling that we are in a penthouse. The apartment has a state of the art kitchen, a large living room with stunning views over the mountains, including White Face, and a large bedroom with a king bed. The bathroom has two doors, one directly from the bedroom and the other one from the living room. It was so nice that we didn’t want to leave. The price was still a fraction from what you normally pay at surroundings lodges. Unfortunately there is only one apartment, so it is hard to book it sometimes, but the rooms in the same aisle with the apartment (14, 15, 16 etc.) are also larger and with the same wonderful view.

This was my first stay at Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Inn, but not my last.

My C/A and I wanted to stay in Lake Placid for two days just to be in the region of highest peeks in New York. I was attracted to Art Devlins because of the tripadvisor rating and all the favorable comments that were made.

We were not disappointed. Our room #221 was huge as was the bathroom with largest walk-in shower I've ever seen. A whole family could bathe in that thing.

Our room had a fabulous two-person jaccuzzi that we used both nights. Our room also had an exceptionally private balconey. Our room faced East and afforded us the most spectaculor view of the Mountains. I was intoxicated with the views.

Art Devlins is right on the edge of town and we walked everywhere. We had two delightful dinners in town at Restaurants I cannot remember the names of.

All in all our experience with Art Devlins was great. I'd go back in a heartbeat, in fact we're goingg to go back.

My sister and I have stayed at Art Devlin's twice in the past 3 years for a girls weekend. Both times we have enjoyed our room, though we didn't spend much time in them other than sleeping. The beds are comfortable and there is free wireless internet access. Location is wonderful; close enough to town to not need your car, but far enough out that you don't have any noise from town at night. You can see the ski jumps from the hotel and the walk to town (a little more than 1/2 a mile) includes some quaint shops and some Olympic sites. On your walk in to town, you pass the Olympic Oval, where they did the speed skating in the 1932 Olympic Games as well as the ice rink where the Miracle on Ice occurred during the 1980 games. The breakfast is only some coffee and muffins (sometimes some donuts), so I recommend planning to eat breakfast somewhere in town.

Room was clean with a great view, bathroom was good size although if you are taller then 5'3" you probably won't like the shower. Overall our stay was very nice and the price was reasonable.
