I chose this location based on a recommendation for their service to military personnel. Although I didn't directly meet Al, I spoke with him on the phone numerous times and his staff/family were beyond helpful while we visited. I traveled alone with a 10yr and 6m old and felt beyond safe and comfortable. We checked in and were greeted with... More

If you need a place to stay with clean sheets and a shower, you are going to be ok. If you like to be warm, you might want to consider other options: our bathroom window was removed and replaced by a tarp/plastic which was barely holding by one corner. We closed the bathroom door to keep the cold in that... More

Good afternoon, I am sorry about the items you addressed However, I pride myself on correcting discrepancies as soon as I am made aware of them. I did not personally meet you until the Sunday you checked out. That is when you told me about the defective window which I have corrected after you left. Funny that you didn't mention... More

This was my first visit to the area from the west coast. As a solo female traveler I was looking for a place where I felt comfortable and safe. This property could not have fit the bill better. Not only is it located in a perfectly quiet area which I wanted, but Al and Alicia who run it couldn't have... More

This quaint little mountain town is the perfect place to relax. Mountain Brook Lodge has the perfect accommodations. Enjoy both Whiteface and Lake Placid. Not only is Al a great host, with a super breakfast, (included) but he knows the area and will help you plan your day. From the fluffy towels to the fire he builds at night, Al... More

Very clean, nicely furnished, refrigerator w/freezer, designer bed quilts, and pleasant, welcoming owner. I've stayed at many hotels/motels, but this one beats them all. I'll go out of my way if needed to stay at this one again. Restaurant recommendation at the motel was also excellent, and foliage in the area of the motel around Columbus Day is spectacular. The...

Al and his wife aim to please. The rooms are complete with every amenity you could want. Two boxes of Kleenex! No postage stamp towels that you can read a paper through.

I can't say enough about what a wonderful time we had staying at the Mountain Brook Lodge last month. The owner, Alicia couldn't have been more welcoming. She is sweet and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast spread (Alicia calls "kind of continental") is crazy. Hard-boiled eggs, toast, pastries,... More
