“The information in the web is cheating”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We booked this hotel from booking.com. And in the description, it says a queen room includes a kitchen and a balcony. But when we got there with all food we bought from the grocery to cook, the receptionist told us the room does not include a kitchen and refused to change us to a room including a kitchen. And sorry, no balcony either! All we got is a dirty coffee machine which we washed it again and again so finally it was acceptable to boil some hot water...

And the wall is so thin that you can hear a single bit of noise from the next room, had bad sleeps there...Won't go back!

My girlfriend and I were looking for a cheap place to stay in Lake Placid on a Thursday night in season. We were looking for something cheap and our expectations weren't high, which is good because the room wasn't all that great. It was cold when we got in there because the air conditioner was on (it was December). There was no lock on the window and the room was not well insulated. However the location was a short walk away from Main Street, and we only paid $97 for the night. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay without any perks then this is your place.

We really enjoyed this hotel. Our room was large and clean. The staff (Gabriel) were very friendly. When I called to say that the heat wasn't working within 1 minute they were at my door and it was fixed in 5 minutes. Only one block from the Main Street of Lake Placid. Highly recommend and very affordable.

door lock was old and insecure, no dead bolt; bed very hard, pillows very thin, website said rooms were newly renovated which was quite misleading-old musty smell, old tv did not work well, bathroom sink did not turn off, shower switched randomly from hot to cold, toliet seat stained and chipped, toilet unstable leaning against wall, bathroom fan very loud, bedspread stained, blanket pilly, walls "paper thin" - could hear conversations from other rooms and people walking by on outside landing, stairs to 2nd level a bit tricky to navigate especially when carrying luggage, location misleading from website - would not consider it to be in the 'heart' of village, air conditioner missing cover and covered in lint and grease - sharp edges exposed

We were traveling with our four month old chihuhua puppy and had no problem bringing her along. Our room was on the second floor and was clean and had a small refrigerator, coffee maker and alarm clock. The pillows were very uncomfortable but plenty of hot water and cable tv. It's great if your traveling on budget. However, we were leaving before dawn and there was no exterior lighting. The stairs are dangerous in the dark. All and all, fine to bring our dog and a clean, quiet place to spend the night if you're on a budget.
