Best Western Adirondack Inn
Ranked #10 of 31 Hotels in Lake Placid

Reviewed 21 January 2011

I'm glad we spent the extra few bucks and got a room on the 2nd floor. All the rooms on the first floor have an outside hallway, but the second floor is all inside hallway. 1st floor would probably be fine in the summer though. They also honored my request and gave us a room with an amazing view overlooking the olympic center, the speed skating oval, and the adirondack mountains.

The indoor pool and hottub were really clean and up-kept. The service was great and the employees were very friendly. The location was perfect: we were right on main street within easy walking distance of everything and the whiteface shuttle stopped right across the street at the olympic center. We spent a good 20 minutes in the room looking for where to hook up our laptop for internet before we realized the entire hotel has wireless! haha

Only thing i could complain about is the breakfast. Very bland and the only hot items were watery, fake scrambled eggs and not very good breakfast sausages..

Great value for the money though. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

I took my family on a mini vacation and I choose this hotel because it offered the most for your money and the location. I have a and a 10 year old so the pool was a must! The staff was nice, the rooms were acceptable although two beds in this room was crowded. One bed was the width of one average female from the closet. Had to side step to get our coats into the closet. There was a fridge in the room which was very nice. Hotel was built in the 60s so very old and probably little to no renovations done. We stayed on the first floor so hear everyone above us. When we stayed a boys youth hockey team was here so there was running up and down the halls which was rude and kept us awake. It was obvious the parents nor the staff had any control over them! We had to call the staff and ask them to quiet the boys down. The "business center" which was two computers at the end of the hall (& 3 doors down) was the main attraction for these hockey players who ran from the second floor and up and down the hall to get to. Ugh! Staff was nice. Beds were comfortable. Pool seemed a little dirty/moldy. Saunas were off and small. Hot tub was nice. Fitness room was small and looked old. There was a very old pool table that we didn't touch. Breakfast was great - probably the best thing about this hotel along with location. Lots to eat and open for 4 hours (7-11) on weekends. Lots of tables to eat at and there was a fireplace and a section where kids could play games. Hotel was very nicely decorated inside and out and Christmas lights everywhere. Traveling with family, need a b'fast & pool for lower price then I recommend this place. Looking for something nicer and more modern esp for a couple then would not recommend this place. Try Golden Arrow or Crowne Plaza instead. Oh and there's dog sledding and an ice rink at the Golden Arrow. We did both! Their location is just as good!

Probably one of the best variant for somebody , who do not want to spent a lot of money for bed.
Very friendly stuff, not bad rooms especially on the second floor. Good location , next door to all amenities.
When we are planning our vacation we are choosing between Golden Arrow and Best Western, and BW won because of breakfast and sauna for the same price as GA without. You must agree that breakfast (good continental) and sauna (after the day on the slope) it is not bad addition :).
During our stay water in the pool was little bit cold for my wife and daughter.
One recommendation - sauna needs minimum one and a half hour to be heated, take in mind.

We stayed for one evening, but it was so enjoyable we plan to come back again for a longer stay. Our room was large and clean, the breakfast buffet was abundant with a variety of good food. The location was ideal, right in town, so we were able to walk to the lakes and down Main Street.

We stayed here over the christmas vacation. It was beautiful, all snowy, crisp air, twinkly lights. We were travelling with 2 small children so the hotel breakfast was great lots to pick from and the location to activites was fabulous along with the indoor pool! I am itching to go back again for a romantic vacation this time "sans enfants"!!
