Upon arrival this hotel looks ok the style is alpine ski chalet and it kinda works given it's surroundings. This style continues once inside the reception area but sadly in here it looks a bit tired. Don't get me wrong it's not falling down or from together it's comfortable but it could use a bit of a make over. This is also true of the rooms the one we stayed in (108) really could benefit from some attention, the rooms are a good size with plenty of storage space but given that it's a winter sports area I'd expect that and ours came with a fridge and a TV and 2 double beds!!! Oh and the walls are very thin and you can hear everything in the adjacent rooms!! But these issues are not our main concern...our room opened onto the car park with a constant stream of people walking past the window end result you have to close the curtains to prevent people from staring in through the windows. Also this does make you feel a bit vulnerable and worry about security! The plus side is getting your luggage from The car is fairly easy???? The hotel has a pool but strangely no bar and the breakfast is reasonably good with a good selection of pastries, muffins and breads, cereals and cooked items as well as hot drinks fruit juices and yoghurts it's just a shame it has to eaten from cardboard plates with plastic cutlery. Overall I have to say it's a bit overpriced for a "motel" in need of a makeover
Having visited Lake Placid many times, we have found that the Best Western Adirondack Inn, a tthree star hotel, gives you the best value for your money. The rooms are spacious, off the 2nd floor a great view of Mirror Lake, a very good choice of breakfast and even a pool if you want to unwind after walking the town or local hiking trails.
