The Pines Inn of Lake Placid
Ranked #8 of 14 Lake Placid B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 October 2012

We were terribly disappointed in The Pines. The room was too small for 2 queen beds, pipes showing (one looked like a sewer pipe and was over one edge of a bed, others in the bath and bright orange and pink), just not acceptable for a Lake Placid hotel. You could sit on the toilet and wash you hands at the same time! Tub had mold in the caulking. Wall paper was coming off in the bathroom and in the bedroom area. We were never told of any amenities (there is no restaurant or bar), only a free coffee in the registration area. There is no elevator and you have to drag all your luggage up the entrance stairs and then up two more sets of stairs to get to the only floor they claim are used (30?), and it is totally is not handicap accessable. How was this place even allowed to open without handicap acessability?

The only good thing about the room are the beds, they are decent, firm mattress. The decor of the washroom can't be simpler than that. The tiles on the floor looked dirty. Shower head was bad and the temp of the water was hard to control. All the door frames were roughly done (can't close tight). TV size in the room was 10' (the smallest TV I have ever seen) and it was on a small shelf with all the cables dangling behind. They had terrible blinds on the window (that one of them missed two pieces). The hallway is too small and the decor needs upgrade. I have stayed with hotels in US, Canada and Europe. For the money I paid, I would seriously doubt it can be rated as a three stars hotel. Someone really needs to check that out!

The location is great and owners seem nice BUT small ripped towels, small toiletries, internet only downstairs, and you can hear EVERYTHING everyone is doing! We slept in the truck the first night and had a better night's sleep! The shower head is at least 4-6 feet above you?! I yelp every time we eat out which is often, if only I yelped or trip advised this place prior to booking. I never would have. The beds are tempurpedic but who cares? The bed frames stink, sinking in the middle! And the visible cobweb in the corner made it much safer to sleep. Housekeeper was non-existent. Handicap accessibility? Non-existent as well. And to the reviewer who wrote about the dust bunnies hanging themselves on the shoelace you would leave under the bed.. hysterical and couldn't be more true!!

Room Tip: You can hear everything everyone is doing. No handicap accessibility! Internet downstairs.

This is an amazing old girl from yester year that is owner operated and run. If you are looking to step back in time, and to settle into some ambiance then this is where you come. You are greeted with an oversized porch full of places to relax then move into the lobby where there is an oversized common room. It has several seating areas is full of amazing antiques, and a big blazing fire place. This is a place where you settle in and relax. The rooms are huge for an old hotel and also are full of unique pieces that let you know you are not in a cookie cutter hotel. Yes there are quirks with the hotel, dont expect wireless in your rooms, or coffee makers. The coffee is in main lobby next to the amazing great room where, gasp quelle horror you can actually socialize with other people!!! These places are about experiencing the atmosphere and history not about updating your facebook. The location is amazing 1 minute walk from the Lake. Lots of parking.
I love love love this hotel, and my room was clean and well presented. The best part about this hote is it's owner run and operated. The money made at this hotel stays in the community and supports the American economy not some Wallstreet fat cat. I would gladly give my money to a hard working American couple living there dream anyday over the Hilton's and Best Westerns. I will be back. Thanks for great stay.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 110 and it's very big and cute.

We stayed one night here. The hotel is a short walk from the lake. The rooms come with an electric radiator which took an hour to heat up. The shower head was pretty bad and the water temp was inconsistent. The room was adorable and clean. The beds very comfortable. No elevators!!
