Fall Trip to Lake Placid
Our stay was very good, the staff was outstanding, very friendly and very helpful. We had dinner once and breakfast 2 times at Generations and were very happy with both the food and the prices. One disappointment, our room, #550 was advertised as Village View. In reality we looked into the windows of an apartment building. Not a deal breaker but if you are going to advertise a certain view, it should happen.

8/10 Very good

Great hotel with a great view.
Great stay. Loved the view of the lake. The shower was a bit strange as it is an open concept with no door, which means when you take a shower it splashes all over the bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and the hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. I think the cleaning staff doesn’t really clean your balcony, as we found a cigarette butt out there. Other than that, everything else seemed pretty clean. The only thing I would like to see different is a discount voucher for food at the attached restaurant. They give you happy hour prices for the drinks, which we didn’t get a chance to take advantage of.

Pampered anniversary weekend
It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We had a million dollar view and could watch the fire dancing program from the warmth and comfort of our room. The sunrise was amazing. There was a surprising number of staff that attended promptly to any concern or questions we had. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families, couples.

Enjoyed the Golden Arrow
40th anniversary stay, room was just what we were looking for. Hotel layout takes a day to figure out, but it's all there, whatever you want from meals, night club, great pool and hot tubs, nice beach with fire pits, well appointed rooms. Great location (once the roadwork and associated electrical outages are completed), close to so many nice shops and restaurants.

Great 3 night stay
Prime location in the heart of Lake Placid village. Easy walk to loads of restaurants . Hotel rooms were updated and comfortable. Spend the extra money and get a room facing the lake. Views are spectacular.
