Spent 3 nights there with my family during 2012 New Year's Eve. A fairly reasonable price, and a very, and I mean VERY, clean little lakeside motel in the heart of Lake Placid. I am trying to remember any negatives, perhaps they need to increase the wireless speed and add a sofa in the room :) ...that is it. The location is great, not a cottage setting, but definitely worth the price ! Walking distance to Main St. (~ 10 minutes by the lake), 1 minute to Rite Aid, 2 minutes to Hannaford and Price Chopper. And best of all, we were central to many area attractions. Very positive experience indeed.

Room Tip: - Get a Lake view room, definitely worth the price premium ! - Get the cottage if you can afford th...

My husband and I stayed here for an extended weekend while we were in the area for a wedding. We stayed in the main building on the second floor. Although the rooms are smaller, they are clean and have everything you need, including a little refrigerator. The location is great because you can walk a few minutes down the road and be at the main street of Lake Placid to explore all the little shops and restaurants.

We stayed with another couple in the Cottage. The whole place was immaculate and very comfortable. Easy walking distance to town. Beautifully situated right on Lake Placid. Wonderful in December, can't wait to see it in June!

Lakeside location. Lofted bedrooms. Pristine cleanliness. Friendly hostess. Within the village but not on the main drag. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Price was also right. Perfect for four friends.

We like to travel with our adult daughter and often it is difficult to find the privacy we all want at a reasonable price. Here we were able to have connecting units, one with queen bed and kitchenette, the other with 2 double beds. As others have noted, the units are newly renovated and the bathrooms are particularly well done. The walk into town, where there are many restaurants, is easy. As well there is an attractive new restaurant right across the street from the motel. We had breakfast there twice. The lakeside grounds with Adirondack chairs are lovely. It had been about 20 years since we had been to Lake Placid and we very impressed with how vibrant and appealing it was. We will return soon.

We recently stayed at this resort for a weekend. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms newly renovated which is always a bonus. The service was fabulous. The location was good but maybe not in the middle of winter. It would be too long of a walk to main street if not dressed for it. The price makes it all worth it. My only negative remark is the thinness of the walls. We had some noisy and inconsiderate neighbours in the room next to us. If you notice you have neighbours it might be wise to ask for a quieter room. Overall it was a pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Excellent place. Beautiful, clean, and quite. Walking distance to downtown with none of the noise of downtown. We stayed with our 2.5 years daughter and it was so fun to get her play around. Also the free canoe is a blast!
