Lake House

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Leave your car in the motel parking lot and enjoy walking around Lake Placid village and Mirror Lake. This motel is stylish and beat our expectations. We travel with. A dog and we're amused with their helpful "dog Conceirge". He appeared at our door with a cute rubber mat, 2 matching bowls, a bed, a map of where to walk and biscuits! The place was clean and didn't even smell of any prior four pawed visitors. Well done! And a beautiful view and nice balcony.

The staff, the atmosphere, and the location were perfect. There is nothing negative that I can say. We had an excellent experience.

Conveniently located but, kids running up and down hallways not quite at all.

Room was Clean, Spacious and well appointed ... Location is excellent, Views are priceless, staff ensures that all needs are met

We loved our stay. Comfy and clean room:) our view was amazing. The staff are super friendly. We will definitely will stay at Lake Hotel again.

Great location in Lake Placid, right along the strip of Main Street. Nice hotel with great staff

counter staff was very good , I think a little better signage about registration could help .

I got my booking through this site and I paid extra to have a king bed and was promised a balcony or patio and Wi-fi music. I had to produce my email to get the king bed as they had us listed in a full bed. I told them upon check in we were in a king room with music and balcony (read it right off the page), but we were put on the the 3rd floor with no balcony, limited (although lovely) view and no Wi-fi music. I as going to ask to be moved but my husband was okay with it and already started unpacking. It worked out fine because our room was at the end of the hall and made it more private. Didn't hear people coming and going. The room was small and cozy, comfortable bed and pillows...best hotel shower head...perfect pressure. I did mention it to the lady when I checked out and she said something about it being a 3rd party booking they needed the information I had and put the computer themselves...not sure how that works...seems like they would have received a full description from here...don't know if this travel site or the Motel dropped the ball. The pool area was nice and the hot tub is really big. Temp could have been a smidgen hotter.. The location is great..right across the street from Mirror Lake and just steps away from restaurants and shops. We never made it to the other side of town (we went that way on the way home) I suggest if you go that you do... Room could be cleaner..the bed skit had obvious stain like someone spilled food or drink in the bed. For the price and location I was satisfied with what we received...

We had a great time our room was upgraded, We stayed at The HighPeaks hotel. Very helpfully to us.We will go back.

Nice big and clean room,but the carpets in the hallways could be cleaned (smelly humid odour) or replaced...

Based on the description that was provided on the website my husband and I thought the room would be bigger and we would actually get a view of the lake. Instead it was a cramped room and very cramped bathroom and our view of the lake included a large portion of the asphalt roof. Also it was not a very quiet hotel. The neighbors were very inconsiderate with the bang doors at all hours of the night and the morning. I did not think it was worth the amount of money that they charged.

probably the only room that did not have a balcony and chairs. Bed and bedding was awesome. great night sleep. its a older hotel with the usual wear and tear.

We were stopping in Lake Placid on our trip through Andirondacks and we were happy to select this hotel. Very convenient location for visit in the village and local hiking and skiing, yes they opened the slopes day after Thanksgiving. Clean room and bath, courteous guest attendants, splendid view on the Mirror lake and the mountains around! You can use all amenities of the "parent" HIgh Picks hotel next door. The only confusion was to find the hotel (no clear name seen from the road) and then you need to go/drive across the street to check in. Room furniture upholstery could be replaced.

Great location. We were able to walk to restaurants and local attractions. The free boat rentals on the lake were really nice. The room itself is typical and older. It smelled a little like old smoke, and the bathroom had no fan, but other than that it was just what we were looking for. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated having a mini-fridge.

Two-night stay. Were very pleased with the location. Beautiful sunrise. Room really needed some help. Curtains stained as well as cloth chairs. Great to be able to walk into town. Dancing Bears has very good breakfast. Toured the Olympic sites. Loved the gondola ride at Whiteface. Passport well worth the price.

Room was very clean and comfortable and indeed provided a very picturesque view of Mirror Lake as the name suggests. Very convenient access to all downtown Lake Placid attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

Checked -in 2 hours early, very professional staff. Great Location...steps away to Main St. View from the Balcony is perfect! Heat not working yet in the room, called to check the heater(was 25 degree that night in Lake Placid) maintenance guy came right away and fixed it. Warm and comfy bed, clean linens. Clean bathroom except that bathtub is slow to drain. Notified the staff at check out for the next guest to occupy the room. Will stay there again...would recommend to a friend.

The cheapest room I could find in Lake Placid, and it offered clean comfort and an incredible lake view. I was really impressed. Some folks on websites complained that this hotel was bought up by the larger resort across the street (High Peaks Resort) but that only meant that I had to check in at the office across the street from my room (literally, right across the street) and had use of amenities at both hotels. No complaints here!

Room was next to a loud air conditioner so i couldn't use the outdoor deck. Breakfast took an hour and a half when I told the manager he said sorry and walked away nice hotel "bad staff"

Family enjoyed the free kayaks. Beautiful morning view of the lake. Great location on Mirror Lake. The price was great for all of the amenities offered. Will definitely stay here again. Check in location is extremely confusing though.
