The only good thing I can say about this place, was that they let us rent a room for one night. When we stayed here 7 years ago, under different management,it was around $50. This time, under new management, it was $104. We figured that the increase in price and new management meant that the rooms were nicer. Oh.... were... More

Yes, you will think you went into a time warp and ended up the 70's. Bottom line is that the room was comfortable and what you would expect for an older motel. It is the best value in town. Will definitely stay there again when we return for another ADK hiking trip next year.

Stayed at Alpine Air Motel last week. Value for what you get is great. I stayed for one night while on a mini ski vacation. After I checked out I noticed I had forgotten a piece of clothing in washroom. Contacted hotel and owner very professional in responding to my concerns. Will stay here again.

Travelled to Lake Placid for a weekend, got there late on a Fri and checked out on Sun. But I loved this place. It is a bit dated, but it is well maintained, clean and comfortable. There's so much to do and see in Lake Placid, there's no need to spend a lot of time in the room. The rooms... More

On a last minute getaway for Labor Day weekend, we were able to get a room at the Alpine Air Motel. I think the rest of the town was sold out! Thank goodness the weather was great because the hotel was not anyplace you want to spend any time. The furnishing were so old, they could shoot a 1960s TV... More

For a quick overnight and a hike in the Adirondacks this motel is great....price is right. The location is perfect...near the restaurants, just outside Lake Placid and close enough to the High Peaks. You may have the pool (outdoors) to yourself. Motel is usually used by overnight guests.

My girlfriend and I went for a four-day weekend to Lake Placid. We spent little time in our room, but found the accommodations more than enough for our admittedly simple needs and expectations. We had complimentary Wi-Fi, heat and AC, a fridge, and hot running water. We could walk to the center of Lake Placid in less than half an... More

I checked in Thursday evening and wasnt too impressed. Its old. The whole unit leans down hill. When you walk across the floor everything rattles. The bed is about 20 years old. Oh well...it was just me and it would do. Friday evening the neighbors arrived. I went to bed at 9...was awoken at 10 to a thud, thud, thud.... More

This hotel is a bit aged, but very clean. The location was exceptional and the price was right. The staff was professional and polite and the room was very clean. We were looking for a place to just spend the night and this place fit the bill.
