Very clean & comfortable room, loved the bed. Had all of the amenities I needed. Enjoyed the breakfast & Delta Blue, food was very good at both. As was the band at Delta Blue.
Staff was friendly & helpful.

My wife and I along with some friends have stayed at the Hotel Northwoods three times. The staff couldn't be more accommodating and treated us extremely well. The breakfast restaurant serves very hearty and delicious breakfasts. Delta Blue, the restaurant and blues club on the first floor likewise serves great food with a Southern flair and the music is always great. The rooms are fairly basic but the beds are very comfortable. The location right in the heart of Lake Placid is a plus too. We've always enjoyed ourselves at Hotel Northwoods. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear are quieter. Room in the front have great views of Mirror Lake.

Was rated as a three-star hotel so I booked it. I would maybe give the room itself to 2 and 1/2 stars at most but the rest of the hotel looks and smells 100 years old. The porch of my room was out to the parking lot with trees covering it. Felt unsafe stepping onto it was old and shaky. definitely not go back. Unless you are in the historic old hotels and enjoy a musty smell. The staff was okay. But this hotel should not be listed as a three-star.

Thank you for your comments and I sincerely regret that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are actually a historic hotel; one of the oldest in the village of Lake Placid. We have done an extensive amount of remodeling in the rooms, and continue that work in other areas of the hotel. We are working to add modern touches without losing our historic charm. I'm sorry that that's not the type of hotel experience you were looking for. We describe the balconies as having a woods/forest style view. All of the lake and village views are visible from the rooms on the opposite side of the hotel, though none of those rooms have balconies as yours did. I will forward your comments about the balcony to our maintenance department so they can look into the best way to repair/remodel that space. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continually improve the quality and services we offer our guests. We hope that you will give us an opportunity to welcome you back and show you a true Hotel North Woods experience.

This hotel is in the heart of town. Really good location. We felt the hotel could use a freshen up. A little worn and rusty. Elevators were a bit dirty along with the balcony. Ate in the restaurant Delta Blue. Do not recommend at all. Food was bad. Music was awesome both nights we stayed. Recommend the music. This area is absolutely beautiful and worth the trip.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We appreciate your feedback about the hotel. While we have completely remodeled all of the guest rooms other areas are still "in progress". I will forward your comments about the food in Delta Blue to our Food & Beverage manager, but I am delighted that you enjoyed the music during your stay. We take all guest comments sincerely as they help us gauge what we are doing right, and areas we can improve upon. Thank you for staying with us, and we hope that you will join us again next time you are in the area.

Hotel has spent a lot of money on the rooms which because of the style of building and layout are bigger than the norm. You pay a premium because it is Lake Placid and an additional premium because of the location. Lobby is tired and without any character, restaurant is meah. Staff friendly and place is very clean. Beds very comfortable.
