We stayed here on a road trip fall 2016 by chance and last minute. As soon as I saw the view from the room I wanted to stay, and we did for two nights. I couldn't get enough of that view and still have it on my computer as a screen saver 6 months later. We were looking for a...

All in all a good little place. A little out dated but clean. The front desk was friendly and very helpful in telling us about the local attractions as well. There is also and indoor and outdoor pool.

Dead of winter weeknight. Only way we could snag last minute room here. Its no frills, a little on the aging side. But there is a wonderful pool, whirlpool and sauna. Very clean, very well maintained and on a weekday in winter, no kids to compete with for the pool. Property is pleasant. Must be like camp in the summer....

Wildwood on the Lake is a very quaint rustic place in Lake Placid. Other "main road" Hotels and Motels are triple the cost and parking access is next to impossible. Wildwood is clean and has many amenities you would not find at downtown lodging; is ON Lake Placid with free use of canoes, kayaks and paddle boats. Indoor heated pool...

This place was great! It is by no means luxury but that does not matter when you are vacationing in the Adirondacks! We stayed in a room above the pool. It was a nice room with plenty of space. The place is right on Lake Placid and they offer plenty of amentities from kayaks, row boats, paddle boats, pool, sauna,...

Thanks for the review and the heads up of the cool pool Sir. We had found earlier this week, before reading this review, that the flow valve on the heating unit had stopped working which immediately shuts off the heating element. A replacement was ordered and is being replaced today returning the pool to the comfortable 81 degrees we advertise....

This was previously a 5 star rating, but j changed it to 4 due to a conversation I had with the owner/manager and a conversation I overheard her having with another couple stay in at the motel. The property is kept well very well, with Adirondack style chairs strewn throughout the back to overlook the lake. There is a gazebo,...

Between my wife and I, the owners and our office help, we deal with absolutely everything here on-site. How we wish we could wave the magic wand and cure all problems people decide they may have after reading a review of the nature. The way someone overhears a conversation, considers advice rude and feel your own questions were not answered...

I have used trip advisor for reviews for several years and never end up writing a review myself but this place really should get credit for what if offers. My husband, daughter and son-in-law stayed in cottage 107. It has two bedrooms, a nice cozy but airy sitting area and a nice kitchenette with a big table and benches. The...

Wanted a couple of quiet relaxing days before picking up our daughter at Saranac Village -- she was on work crew there for a month. Wildwood on the Lake was the perfect place. The motel is very well maintained and offers so much to do besides just a room to sleep. Our room seemed to be recently renovated with new...

Beautiful views, premium location right on the lake, impeccably maintained, every amenity needed for a perfect vacation. Our favorite summer spot. Guests like us come back year after year. We absolutely love it! The only problem is that it's very hard to leave.
