We arrived about 1 in the afternoon after driving for 5 hours with a toddler, only to find a sign on the desk that no one was available until 3 pm for check-in. Once we went back, was informed that there was no elevator, but someone could help with luggage as they had a service elevator. Our room was on...

We stayed with several friends recently and had a great time. From the moment you enter the front door you sense that old-world charm with a Bavarian flare that this hotel captures. Warm, rustic, inviting. Greeted by the owner Jill and immediately felt welcomed. Rooms were very clean, memory foam bed was perfect. Temperature was very cold outside but rooms...

What a pretty throw back to an earlier time. The Pines Inn was originally built around 1910. Its old its quaint but best of all its a mom and pop operation. Jill and Frank run the Pines basically single handed. They work hard keeping this century old hotel running. You see them doing everything. Front desk, housekeeping, building maintenance, bookkeeping,...

The hotel is charming, we were there during a very down time of year. The price was certainly right. Rooms were pretty clean, the bathrooms could us a bit of an update but were pretty clean. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Even in the cold, the hotel is not far from all the shopping and dining in the Village.

My husband and I flew to Lake Placid for a weekend getaway. I got our room quite cheap on the internet. The hotel is quaint and very comfortable. Our room was clean and homey and the bed was very comfortable. We had no extras, room service etc. and the bar down stairs was closed for the season but we wanted...

First, we'd not been to this inn over 15 years - when it was St-Mortiz - even then it had a quaintness about it (no working elevator back then as well) - it was just very down to earth. Fast forward to 2014, we work w/e's - so taking a nice break during the fall foliage season when rates are...

Good location, just off the main drag and Mirror Lake, and nice public spaces, but we experienced so many drawbacks that I cannot recommend the Inn. First, there is no elevator -- we had to walk FIVE full flights of stairs (which became ever narrower) from the parking lot to our room. Renovation was going on in the hallway immediately...

This was the first time I have stayed here in 15 years. The name has changed and the rooms have improved greatly. They were very clean and the beds were very comfortable memory foam style beds. There is a new hot tub and sauna in the downstairs area. The price is great for Lake Placid and its in walking distance...

Came for post engagement celebrating, and we were welcomed by a super friendly blonde haired lady whom we are guessing is the owner, with the biggest smile:) very attentive, helpful and always happy to see you! There are places closer to downtown, but this place feels like home. Not to mention, if you come at the right time of year,...
