Booked here combined reason of price and location. Rooms were as pictured and breakfast was very good! Loved the oatmeal! I really appreciated the kitchenette in our room. I understand this is a budget location so I am satisfied with my stay and would recommend for that purpose. My suggestions going forward if they were to make any changes would... More

Fabulous stay, again. This renovated motel backs on the Ausable river and is just far enough off the beaten path that it is quiet and potentially, still a secret to many, so shhhh. We stayed in the wilderness room this time, which was comfortable, cozy and clean. A welcome retreat after a long hike (DIX). Well priced with breakfast that... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating! We were the only ones for the evening and they still built us a fire and provided a lovely home made breakfast! Everything was clean and neat. We stayed in the vintage room because I had my dog. It was a beautiful room, the only thing was that the beds weren't the best... More

We enjoyed our second stay at the ADK Trail Inn. The room was very clean and the small kitchenette had everything we needed. The complimentary breakfast has something for everyone and hardy enough to keep you going while hiking. The location is beautiful and we always enjoy some time down by the river. (Great hammock for napping right by the... More

ADK Trail Inn was spotless. The bed was so comfortable I wanted to lift the mattress to see what brand it was. Not cheap. The breakfast was huge with all you could want, fresh ingredients, lots of hot/cold options and delicious coffee. We stayed in the top floor above the reception desk. It was quiet & peaceful with the sound... More

From the campfire in the evening to the hammock by the river to take out dinner on the deck outside of our room, this was everything we expected and more. It was clean and comfortable and getting the third night at half price gave us an excuse to stay longer.

This was our first time staying here but hopefully not our last! Very cute, family run, place. Room was clean, the refrigerator and microwave were nice to have. The breakfasts were great! We did have an issue with our room key not working in the lock, but they were very prompt in dealing with it. Overall, we really enjoyed our... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights after attending a memorial service in Canada for an old friend. We needed a break before our return trip to Virginia. The inn gave us that. Two nice breakfasts and being surrounded by the Adirondacks was just the ticket.

Second time staying at ADK with an extended group of families. For stays too short for a weekly rental there's just no better place in the high peaks - great rates, terrific breakfast, and great location. A classic and unpretentious Adirondack motel. I always keep ADK Trail Inn in my contact list. Thank you!!
