“Comfortable, friendly and perfectly located”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

This is a wonderful place to stay at great rates, whether you are skiing at nearby Whiteface or hiking or ice climbing in the area.

We had a small but comfortable room with two queen beds. It was warm, very clean and nicely decorated, even though it was one of their standard, not-yet-upgraded rooms. Granted the bathroom fixtures were older - there is a shower, no tub - but everything worked perfectly and was shining clean.

Our room (#5) had a microwave and fridge. There was no phone or tv or coffee machine but that was not an issue for us. There is a tv in the spacious dining room, and coffee was plentiful at breakfast, which was included in the price.

We had lots of interaction with the owner, Wayne, who was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed there during a cold winter weekend and the room was always warm; the driveway was kept plowed, and the dining room was a cosy place to hang out and read or watch tv.

We will definitely stay here again.

Welcoming and attentive hosts, meticulously clean rooms, an excellent and varied breakfast buffet and proximity to some of the best hiking trails in the Eastern United States add up to terrific value, even before the very low room prices are taken into account. The ADK Trail Inn reminds me of the very best of the small town, family-owned motels my family used to stay at when I was a child--not a lot of expensive frills, but they get the important things just right.

I stayed at the ADK Trail Inn a few days after it opened under new management, and the experience was great. The room was clean, and staff was super friendly. The location is just a few miles from Whiteface, and a very short drive to Keene. It's quiet, and the grounds have a nice fire pit and sit behind a branch of the Ausable River. Breakfast was ready promptly at 7 AM for me to make it out to the trails early. I'll definitely stay again.

We were impressed by the cleaniliness and the warm welcome. The ambiance is great and the room was perfect. The towels were sweet and beds were just great after a good day hiking. The game room is alsways fun and breakfasts the next morning are amazing. Thanks, we will see you again.

We just returned from the Ark lodge for a one night stay. It was newly renovated and very clean. It was a simple room with two beds small refrigerator and a hot plate and microwave. They do not have a T.V. . We were greated by the owners with a welcome sign and our room assignment. We came back later in the evening and the owner had a small campfire ready for us to enjoy.

I would recommend this hotel.
