    Consistent with the overdeveloped tourist trap ambience of Lake Placid, this hotel provided the bare minimum of amenities for a price much higher than comparable institutions outside the Lake Placid area. Despite the lovely natural surroundings of the Lake Placid region, the motel has no ambience whatsoever, situated as it is in a barren paved parking lot with no landscaping to speak of, and dated, tawdry wannabe-Swiss architecture. Room was spartan and tired, and hygiene is rudimentary... we were treated to the spectacle of someone else's poo on the bottom of the toilet seat in our room, which only begs the question about the attention to cleanliness in the rest of the hotel. Staff, though not overtly impolite when approached regarding a problem with improperly programmed key cards, never offered an apology for the oversight, and remediation of the problem was perfunctory and rushed. Swipe card access to one of the 2 doors on the rear of the building did not work at all, necessitating a long and roundabout walk with a flight of stairs to our room when parked in the back (which was the only parking option on the night we stayed there). Breakfast was 'served' in a barren so-called 'conference room' in the basement, furnished with a couple of tacky, long, bingo-hall style tables. No attempt was made to maintain food stocks or clean up between guests; we arrived to find dirty tabletops, a dirty and crumb-strewn food preparation table with depleted offerings, a glopped-up waffle maker surrounded by spilled batter, half-filled batter cups, and burned remnants of other peoples' failed waffle making attempts, and no staff member anywhere in sight. We took one look and headed for McDonald's - hardly the expected scenario, given that this hotel was by far the most expensive of the four we stayed at in our travels through New York and Vermont. Altogether a disappointing (and somewhat disgusting) experience, and definitely not worth the money. Avoid at all costs.

  • Good for the money

    Although the hotel was a little dated, it had plenty of amenities such as HBO, a very nice pool, and WiFi. The staff was very kind, but the furniture and rooms could use a little bit of updating. But if you come to Lake Placid to do other things besides hang out in a hotel, it serves as an excellent homebase.

  • Great service; average faciilities but flawless stay

    The front desk clerk was friendly and professional. The room was clean and I found no issue or problem. Price was a slightly high but I was happy because I found no issue. Extremly light continental breakfast is the only weakness hence I'm giving it 4/5.

  • This hotel made me feel welcome

    In Econo Lodge Lake Placid we had nice clean room. The pool and hot tub were refreshing after our long days on Adirondack trails. Note: the flowers on balconies are real and smell good!

  • Econo Lodge did a great job of making my stay comfortable.
