          • Older travelers

            Continental breakfast was good. Location/view excellent. Lobby very inviting

            Bathroom very very small and in need of work. No attention to detail with painting and upkeep(wall paint on ceiling and carpet in need of repair)

            The location of the Hotel is good. Front desk staff was helpful.Breakfast was good.Towels in the bathroom were new and plenty of them.

            Breakfast area is very old, dark and looks dirty.Toasters are almost out of order, microwave machine is damaged and old.I Don't know about rest of the rooms but our room didn't have any balcony, or even possibility to open a window (no mosquito screen) to be able to feel nice evening breeze from mountains.If you are staying for summer weekend or so, you will have trouble to find place to dry out your swimming suits.In our room we didn't have any helpful information about hotel and area printed and displayed as it usually happened in any hotels.

            Location of the hotel, convenient to lakes, downtown.

            The service lady did not supply shampoo, conditioner, coffee, did not replace dirty towels (we did not ask every day). The Lounge area on the first floor (not the front desk) smells musty.

            We were pleasantly surprised! After reading some of the reviews I was a little an anxious about the facilities. We will stay there again next year.

            When we arrived we got our room. We went in the lighting was very poor. We unpacked and went out to get a bit to eat. When we came back we noticed the room was not very clean and for the price it should have not been like this.We were in room 211 I believe first. There was paint chips in the bath tub and the floor was dirty in the bathroom. In the bedroom area there was papers under the night stand along with a cap to a baby bottle. The staff did move us to another room but we had to pack all our stuff all back up and relocate at 9:30 at night. We got into our other room and it was better. We have been coming up for the last five years and each year we try to find a place that we can go back to every year for the July forth weekend for we work that weekend at the I love barbeque feast. So we were hoping that this would be a place we could use every year.

            The hotel is conveniently located near the main street with shops and restaurants (5-10 min walking distance). The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice (ask for a lake view room), but very poorly soundproofed (space at the bottom of the door between the door and the floor is about 2 inches, same with the bathroom door). For the rest, A +!

            Horrible hotel.... won't stay there again. No coffee pot, no hangers, no alarm clock, no pillow cases on the pillows, no blankets, no hair dryer, no do not disturb sign (had to make our own with pen and they came in our room anyway but didn't clean), breakfast was wickedly horrid - eggs were rubber, nothing was hot, sausage wasn't cooked through. The fire dept. came because someone was locked in their room and couldn't get out. Had to chop down the door opening!

            The hotel is within walking distance to many shops, restaurants & activities. Great view.

            Very run down. Had to wait well past check-in time for our room & when we did get our room, the staff had not replenished clean towels, toiletries.

            The location was excellent. Right on Main Street in the heart of Lake Placid.

            $600 for 4 nights was an offensive rip-off. While the location was excellent, the facilities were pathetic. Beds, sheets, comforter, tv, etc. appeared to be from 1987. The towels were smaller than the ones I used to use in Gym class. After New Years Eve, the place stunk like vomit. I felt very cheated. This place needs to learn that these standards are unacceptable in 2011.

            The rooms were clean. every day clean towels. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Whenever we asked for something it was done. The breakfast room overlooks mountains and the lake, splendid view.
