The location for town visits, access to the lake (winter and summer) are second to none, and the pool is a great touch. We recommend this place to others as well and they have never been disappointed. A bit pricier but if you're choosing a hotel in this price point, this is the one. Their are others but we prefer...

Got here at 2:30pm. Room wasn't ready. Used the public facility. No soap in restroom. Super disgusting. Waited 90 minutes for a text that our room was ready. Hotel didnt call. I called them, and was told the room was ready. Mean while due to the zero degree temps, payed $50.00 in town to stay warm in a restaurant. When...

Dear Michelle G, Thank you for you review. I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience at the hotel. Check in time is at 4PM, although we do try to get the room ready as quickly as possible if a guest requests an early arrival. This weekend was Empire State Games weekend, as you know, and...

We've stayed here many years, both summer and winter, and find it tough to beat for convenience - it is right on the lake, which makes for easy access to ice skating in winter (hotel clears the lake) and swimming and boating during the summer. The rooms are fine - would go for lakeside, great views. And indoor heated pool...

This has always been my favorite place to stay when visiting Lake Placid. The staff is always eager to exceed expectations! The rooms are always clean and the views breathtaking... I have stayed at this hotel in the spring, fall and now winter through their slow seasons and busy season and the level of service is consistent.

We stayed for 2 nights in a lakeside room and it was perfect. we had amazing views of the snowy lake and close access to the lobby, restaurant, and alpine mall. We purchased breakfast vouchers and thought there would be a ton of restrictions but we actually got to pick pretty much anything on the menu which was wonderful. The...

Caroline L, Thank you for taking the time to review the Golden Arrow. I’m very happy you enjoyed your lakeside guest room and views of Mirror Lake.

Stayed at the Golden Arrow a while back and could not have had a more pleasant stay. I was greeted by a very friendly staff which was very helpful during my visiting. I would chose to stay at this hotel before staying at the other higher priced resorts in LP.

Excellent lake front room with a welcome package - sweet! Staff is very friendly & attentive. Rooms are very nice, as is the pool, hot tubs & steam room. We aren't sauna people so didn't try that. We love that it is family owned and very environmentally conscious.
