This is an older family-owned Hotel. We have stayed there a couple times when we were in town for kids sporting events with large groups of people. The kids had lots of fun swimming in the lake and taking out the canoes. The rooms are spacious but they are in need of updates pretty badly. It is obvious that they...

My fiance and I planned a last minute weekend get away and our stay was fantastic. Beautiful room. Beth was extremely helpful along with Lisa as this was our first trip to Lake Placid. They provided great recommendations for dining and sight seeing! We can't wait to come back!

This hotel is right on Mirror Lake. I had a room that had a balcony that was overlooking the lake. How amazing an serene to sit on that balcony, watching the ducks on the lake, the mountains, and the clouds drifting by. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back!

Lisa checked us in at the front desk and went above and beyond our request for an upgrade. Didn't realize that if you are a "Golden Guest" member and booked through Groupon you would not normally get to request an upgrade. She took care of everything without a problem and we loved our room so much we will probably request...

Perfect for a winter vacation, hotel staff was very friendly and the place itself was very clean. We booked the Haystack room and it was absolutely beautiful. Ice skating on mirror lake was the best and we loved the dog sleds! The only downside is the parking is terrible, partaking garage is much too small if you have a truck...

Perfect location to walk to restaurants, shopping, around mirror lake and to Lake Placid Brewery. Front desk personnel "the best". David went over and above to insure our 13th anniversary stay was perfect. Thank you! Definitely get a room facing the lake that has a balcony. We prefer 3rd or 4th floor suites.
