This is the third time we've stayed at the Hotel North Woods. We always come in the spring and join friends for a few days of food/drinks in the Adirondacks. This hotel provides a clean, comfortable room in the middle of Main Street. The room has a refrigerator and microwave, which is nice, and the beds are super comfortable ....

The hotel was smaller than pictured but roomy enough for us. We had a great view and didn't mind the beds. We booked on Groupon for $66 a night and honestly wouldn't pay anymore than that to stay. After booking on groupon we called the hotel to tell them we would have a dog with us. We were told about...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I am glad you enjoyed your newly remodeled room with a lake view as well as our Tempur-Pedic beds. I am sorry that you didn't feel that the value was appropriate, but you would be hard pressed to find other lake view rooms below $100 in Lake Placid even...

There's a lot that's outstanding about Hotel North Woods. The staff was helpful, the rooms are spacious, the furniture cool, the lakeviews stunning, the darkening curtains thick and the location in the center of the village is perfect. My girlfriend said it reminded her of something out of a Wes Anderson film (especially the restored/refurbished elevators with piped in music)....

Had a king room that includes a pull out sofa in a second room. Provides plenty of room for movement and luggage in a hotel suite. Separate section for the sink apart from the toilet and bath, convenient. Memory foam mattresses, not just toppers, are a nice step up from most hotel mattresses I've experienced. Service desk very friendly and...

Nice hotel and nice staff. Vinny was very kind and helpful! Emily was very sweet as well. I really enjoyed both restaurants attached to the hotel the cabin and Delta Blues. Our room was nice and spacious. My favorite part was the location right on the main street. So convenient!!!

Thank you for your comments, and I regret that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our hotel is actually over 100 years old, and though we have undergone a tremendous amount of renovations in recent years it is still a historically old building at heart.
