“Simply not impressed - And the breakfast that wasn't”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Love the location, and the price was excellent. Our room was clean, well maintained and the bathroom was recently remodeled.

That being said: The Inn is of vintage motel construction - i.e. not masonry - so those on the first floor hear every footstep, and creaking timber above them.

Plumbing is also poorly insulated, so if your upstairs or next door neighbors take a shower, run the water, or flush the commode, sounds of Niagara Falls reverberate through the room.

Mattresses are not of high quality. Both the wife and I awoke with extremely sore backs.

The "breakfast" is some sorry donuts and muffins with no selection of any type of juice.

Room Tip: DON'T reserve a first floor room!

I reserved an upscale room on the second floor. The room was huge: I estimated that 6 double beds would have easily fit in there. The view of the peaks was beautiful and the ride to whiteface was scenic and took only a few minutes. It was also a nice walk to the village. Would definitely return.

We came to LP with a group of college friends and were looking for somewhere comfy to stay that was close to everything and affordable. Art Devlin's was all of the above! We stayed in a regular room with 2 queens which was fine. We still had a fridge and small balcony that overlooked the frozen pool and mountains. Friends stayed in a suite which was slightly more updated with a flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, cozy leather recliners. The only problem we encountered was getting up the hill in the parking lot- VERY icy. It seems the parking lot was not well cared for.

We stayed two nights at Art Devlin for a ski and fun weekend and I was impressed with the quality and it's great location. It's (a good) walking distance to the main street attractions.

we stayed in the upstairs room and the room was fantastic, a great view, comfortable beds, a very spacious room and a great bathroom with marble countertops.

It would be very difficult to find a better room for the price. Art Devlin it will be on my next trip for sure.

Room Tip: Upstairs room are very nice and spacious.

In our last ditch effort to find winter we stayed at Art Devlin's as a convenient point to reach everything in the Lake Placid area including Whiteface, the Olympic Center museum, Olympic Complex and restaurants. What we experienced in return were very comfortable and clean accommodations and friendly staff - including Cassie the resident watch dog who couldn't resist a few kisses for our 4 year old! We were fortunate enough to land in Lake Placid during a quiet week and a warm one at that so walking to all the shops and restaurants was simple! Breakfast and dinner were literally 2 minutes on foot. Our upgraded standard rooms #37 and #38 had 2 comfy queens each, bathrooms with excellent fixtures and beautiful views of Adirondack Peak, Slide and Mt. Marcy. Each morning the coffee and muffins were ready in the lobby for us to take back to the room and get ready for a day of skiing, shopping and exploring. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had upstairs rooms #37 and #38 which have south facing views of the high peaks and pool.

The motel has a rustic appeal. The rooms are a bit dated, but super clean and at such reasonable prices. Bathrooms have been updated and include granite countertops. A small fridge is tucked under the sink. Hair dryers are included. They serve free coffee and tea at breakfast, along with wonderful little muffins of many flavors. This one is a keeper. We are already planning to return.

We stayed in the spacious suite.

Pros:
- Large living room and kitchen felt like home away from home
- Private room with king size bed
- Great deck/view secluded from hotel complex facing Eastern High Peaks zone
- Queen air bed in sofa
- All cookware and tableware provided
- Free coffee and muffins as always
- Quiet

Cons:
- The automatic dishwasher did not seem to be functioning at the time.

Smaller Cons:
- No paper towels provided.
- HDTV's were running off Coaxial analog cables, not HDMI

Another wonderful stay. I would not stay at any other hotel in Lake Placid.

Room Tip: Suite is excellent, but if no frills needed, even the standard rooms are great.
