We arrived in Lake Placid on Monday, June 1st. The weather wasn't the best. In fact, it was rainy, dreary, and down right cold for this time of the year. However, that being said, the accommodations made up for the lousy weather. There was a slight hiccup, when we arrived, that needed to be resolved. I got a room with...

Stayed for 2 nights over Memorial Day Weekend. For a family-run and non-chain hotel I thought the amenities and services were very good, they were accommodating and helped us move to another room with a lake when it freed up. The two most redeeming qualities of the hotel are: (1) the easy lake access, they have 2 docks and a...

Beautiful old hotel with new amenities. Will definitely return next year to the golden arrow. Loved the little touches the hotel used, ceramic mugs for coffee made by the keurig in each room. Parking is a challenge when the hotel is at capacity though.

A wonderful hotel, very clean, great location and staff was super friendly and helpful! We were sorry that we did not have enough time to enjoy all the hotel amenities, i.e. the fitness room, free use of paddle boats, canoes and other water crafts, sitting on the patio and enjoying the beautiful view.

Lakeview rooms are serene, comfortable and offer tranquility. The adjacent restaurant could offer higher quality dining, but services acceptable. The restaurant is more of a Sports Bar which does not fit in with atmosphere of the hotel. A higher standard restaurant on site would be a plus factor. Small beach area with kayaks, canoes etc. offered makes this an ideal...
