“Not bad at all; but #2 in Lake Placid? Really?!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

I cannot complain, but I did not think this hotel was so wonderfully special that it would come in first or second of all the lovely places we saw in the area. Our "upscale" first floor room was very clean and very large. Usually four of us - mom, dad, two teenage boys, plus luggage and ski equipment - fill a hotel room to overflowing, but we had room to spare here. It was only minutes to drive to Whiteface and the Olympic sites. There are some good places to eat right nearby, and we walked to dinner each night, but to walk to downtown Lake Placid would be a a bit of hike, particularly on a chilly day. It was loud, but since we have two teenagers, we are kind of used to this when we travel. You probably should not consider the morning offering in the lobby as your breakfast - it is more of a pre-breakfast snack. If there had been a circle for "Good" between "Average" and "Very Good" that is where I would have rated this hotel - better than average, but not so great I would return year after year.

Love the location, and the price was excellent. Our room was clean, well maintained and the bathroom was recently remodeled.

That being said: The Inn is of vintage motel construction - i.e. not masonry - so those on the first floor hear every footstep, and creaking timber above them.

Plumbing is also poorly insulated, so if your upstairs or next door neighbors take a shower, run the water, or flush the commode, sounds of Niagara Falls reverberate through the room.

Mattresses are not of high quality. Both the wife and I awoke with extremely sore backs.

The "breakfast" is some sorry donuts and muffins with no selection of any type of juice.

Room Tip: DON'T reserve a first floor room!

I reserved an upscale room on the second floor. The room was huge: I estimated that 6 double beds would have easily fit in there. The view of the peaks was beautiful and the ride to whiteface was scenic and took only a few minutes. It was also a nice walk to the village. Would definitely return.

We came to LP with a group of college friends and were looking for somewhere comfy to stay that was close to everything and affordable. Art Devlin's was all of the above! We stayed in a regular room with 2 queens which was fine. We still had a fridge and small balcony that overlooked the frozen pool and mountains. Friends stayed in a suite which was slightly more updated with a flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, cozy leather recliners. The only problem we encountered was getting up the hill in the parking lot- VERY icy. It seems the parking lot was not well cared for.

We stayed two nights at Art Devlin for a ski and fun weekend and I was impressed with the quality and it's great location. It's (a good) walking distance to the main street attractions.

we stayed in the upstairs room and the room was fantastic, a great view, comfortable beds, a very spacious room and a great bathroom with marble countertops.

It would be very difficult to find a better room for the price. Art Devlin it will be on my next trip for sure.

Room Tip: Upstairs room are very nice and spacious.
