Reviewed 20 January 2013

My family ( 2 adults 2 children 9yr and 7 yrs) vacationed at this resort in August 2012. The weather was perfect which allowed us the utilize the all of the amenities to their fullest. All of had fun with the canoes and paddle oats and the lake was gorgeous for swimming.
Our room was ok- a typical '3-star' room. It was clean, bathroom a bit small.
We did not eat at the resort, so I cannot comment on the food.
The location of the Golden Arrow can not be beet. We walked everywhere. Most important, our kids could walk out the sledding doors to the beach/lake. Perfect. Mthe indoor pool was also a hit for both the adults and kids.
We will be staying here again next year!

Room Tip: Any room on the lake- it is worth the extra money

This property is centrally located with attraction minutes away in either direction. It is very family friendly. Clean rooms with some updating needed, but it was clear that renovations are underway. The staff was very accommodating.

Rooms were very comfortable, lodge has a beautiful setting right on Mirror Lake. The shuttle to Whiteface picks up right across Main St. from the hotel. Great prices wiht the ski and stay package. Lots of restaurants and outdoors recreation opportunities in Lake Placid. An outstanding value!

Me and 3 of my buddies stayed here just recently. we booked the kitchenette suite and the room looked much larger from the site but there weren't any complaints with it.clean and in a very good spot in the town. not too far from anything. 15 minutes from the mountain on a free shuttle so there was definitely no complaining there. awesome riding too. very good conditions i have seen previous reviews about the "hockey kids" and they do live up to the name, buncha rowdy little dudes haha. but that didn't bother me. the only thing i could recommend would be staying away from the locals and that pizza place bazzis across the street. Why? the locals are wack. 70 yr old men trying to sell u pot at the local jd mcfunnigans down the street whatever the stupid place was called. also met a few douchers in the lodge who kept making cracks at us because we weren't from around the area. probably also because we weren't drinking pabst blue ribbon haha. and just people u would generally NEVER want to see again the rest of your life cause they were such turds. Oh yeah an the expierence with bazzi's... Feeling great all day an getting hungry so i figure i would grab some dinner around the area. i walk into that place. i get one of their buffalo chicken bull sit wraps and take it down back in the room. Time goes by i'm feelin good then things take a turn for the worse. Literally sweating so much that i had to open a window at that point. next thing i know i'm in the bathroom projectile vommiting diarhea or what looked like it out into the toilet. one of the worst sickness feelings i've had in a long time. couldn't move the rest of the night. thought i had food poisoning. Also ate at that place connected to the hotel "generations" my buddy found a Fvcking quarter in his salad. shortly after he went and bout 5 bazooka joe's at the local candy shop. haha just messing around he actually ended up throwing up. Again your hotel wasn't bad, just the stuff around it. i don't know if i'll ever visit LP again but if i do, i know what to stay away from

We just stayed at the Arrow for a week of skiing and had a great stay. This time we brought another family with us and had our rooms connected. The kids had a riot going room to room without going into the hall. The room and the staff where excellent. We have stayed at other places in Placid but keep coming back to the Arrow and it always is top notch.Great Value and Hospitality.
Thank You to Richard on the front desk for the gift as a returning guest. It was pleasant surprise and a classy touch.
Thanks

This has to be my 15th time to LP,and at least 10 at the Golden Arrow, it just keeps getting better!
perfect location in town right smack in the middle of everything. I will not stay in any other hotel and have been loyal the the GA since the 90's. i dont know if it was a stroke of luck or maybe just a lil Sandy sympathy ,but Jenn graciously gave us , what i though was, the best room in the house , the bathroom was brand new , we were the first guests after the renovation,Her father created the bathroom and countertop . We felt like royality.It didnt even feel like we were in a hotel ! I cant thank you guys enough for the beautiful room and hospiltality! we are and will always be loyal to you guys ! After the Sandy knockdown(but not out) , we sure needed a vacation and you guys, as always, Deliver the goods !! Happy New year !
thanks

Thank you for your loyalty to the Golden Arrow through the years. It is guests like you that keep us open and successful! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your latest visit to Lake Placid.

Stayed in a lakefront delux room for 5 nights. Truly enjoyed our stay. There were some minor issues with the sliding doors and the shower mixer system is not very convenient to use, but other than that everything was up to our expactations - clean and comfortable room, good facilities (they even have a loft room with a punch bag in the gym, which was a pleasant syrprise for me), friendly and knowledgeable staff. The location is perfect - right on the Main Street; the shuttle bus to the mountain stops just across the road from the hotel and the oval skating rink is 3-minute walk away.
