        The only thing that this hotel has going for it is the location and free parking. Thank goodness we had a room with a view of the lake and the mountains. Buy you must request it.

        The room had an odor (could have been the oil heat) the maintenance man walked into our room while we were sleeping and there was no hot water for showers in the morning. The room was sparcely furnished and the couch was dirty. Lots of noise during the night and you could hear everything the people were saying in the next room. At least the bed was somewhat comfortable. When we complained the next morning they took off $21 from our bill.

        The convenience of being able to park the car once and walk to wherever we wanted to go!!!!

        No blow dryer or flat iron as in many other hotel rooms

        was conveniently situated. could walk to shopping and restaurants.

        room was smelly. carpet was stained and old. tiles were cracked in bathroom. the hotel needs to be refurbished with new carpeting, updated bathrooms and new furniture. Mattress was so old it sagged in the middle.., had to crawl out of it. Had I seen the room before checking in I would not have stayed here.

        The staff were absolutely wonderful. We arrived early and asked for a quiet room. Got a quiet room with a balcony. A staff member was walking by and offered to bring up chairs for us to sit on. Hurricane Irene had just hit the area and the chairs were still put away. Clean, comfortable and a friendly staff; what more could you ask for.

        The hotel was in the center of town and all stores and restaurants were within walking distance. We enjoyed our walks around Mirror Lake. The hotel itself has a restaurant that served very good breakfasts. We did not eat lunch or dinner there. The room was clean. The staff was helpful. I would recommend it.

        I felt that the picture of the hotel was deceptive. It looks like it is right on the lake but it is actually on the main street. Luckily, we were on the 6th floor and had a view of the lake and were there only 3 nights.

        Having read some reviews on the Northwood Inn we were expecting the worse but it was better than expected. We had a small kitchenette, eating area and a bedroom with a king bed. The view from the 5th floor overlooking other buildings and Mirror Lake was very nice. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Price were reasonable.

        Parking was a problem as there were limited spaces and because it was a long weekend the hotel was full. While the location of the hotel is excellent, the hotel is old and therefore somewhat tired although they try to keep it up.

        Location, location, location! Great breakfast. Great beds, very comfortable.

        The room did not have a comfortable chair, only high stools(I had to use my cooler as a foot rest). You really need to overhaul the rooms. Very tired.

        Hotel is located right downtown Lake Placid -

        Half of the electrical outlets were covered in packing tape, since they were non-functional. Pull out couch was stained & carpet was dirty. Only had 1 key - was told they were having more made.

        Staff was plaesant and the mattress was comfortable.

        I only stayed here because the band we follow (The Spur) was suppose to play there. No one called us to let us know that the band had to cancel due to a medical issue. Another couple we know said they were called and informed them that the band wouldn't be playing there. I think the hotel could have given us a good discount. There was no ice machine on each floor you had to go to the registration desk.
