    Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Placid Summit Hotel

    Should be condemned

    from

    Deplorable conditions, emergency exits were locked, propane tanks in the lot, mold on the walls. body fluids on the sheets, raw food. There is not a thing positive to say about this hotel. Board of Health and Building inspector have been contacted they should be shut down.

    Should Close Up

    from

    We were at a hockey tournament in March 2004 and were extremely disappointed with our accomadations. The hotel was under construction and we were never notified of that fact. There was no hot water, a clogged toilet and an EXTREMELY small bathroom. Parking was terrible and our view was of the parking lot and blue tarps. Not very clean either. They should close until constuction is finished and they get their act together.

    Disgusting - Never again

    from

    Planned a nice get-a-way after Christmas 12/27 to 12/30/2003. The room was in poor condition. The tub spigot fell off while taking a shower.

    Exhaust vent in bathroom did not work- clogged up with excessive dust- fan only hummed until it overheated and shut down. No wash cloths were left in the room. There was not sufficient parking due to construction material. Not notified about construction of pool. Very disappointed - will not stay at a Ramada Inn again.

    Nver going back

    from

    This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We went in April of 2003.

    We were supposed to go over the holidays, but due to a death in the family could not. What we were looking for was rest and relaxation. We got neither. The toilet overflowed. There was no hot water in the shower. The Ramada's solution, run the water in the sink, turn the shower on 10 minutes before you want to use it. Even then it was tepid at best. We were totally ignored by the front desk. The bar/restaurant was closed (no one told us this when we booked the hotel) The continental breakfast was the worst...out of the most basic items, creamer for coffee, no juice, no refills from the staff. Few stale muffins. I will never go back....could write pages on how badly we were treated. Have you ever stayed in a hotel, with no hot water in the shower????

    Not that bad!

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in September and although there were substantial works going on - we found the hotel conveniently located and staff very friendly. Our initial room was located in the middle of the building works but the reception staff happily moved us to a more suitable room.

    We were disappointed that the bar closed so early and the breakfast wasn't great. But for a one night stopover it was more than comfortable.

    Appalling

    from

    We arrived with trepidation after reading the reviews posted earlier.

    This was justified as the hotel resembled a building site with no outside signage to identify the reception area. The inside was extremely scruffy with dirty floors covered in building dust and pieces of cement etc and the stairs (fire escapes ) contained building materials. The receptionist when we left did not give any eye contact.

    The breakfast was only reasonable and when items ran out ( milk and coffee) we had to chase the receptionist a number of times to obtain further supplies. This hotel lets the Ramada name down and should be closed until the building works have been completed.

    The Ramada was a comfortable place to stay

    from

    During our first trip to Lake Placid in late August of 2003, my wife and I stayed at the Ramada Inn despite reading less than complimentary reviews, beforehand. Although not grand,honestly speaking, we both thought that our room was spacious and comfortable and offered an excellent view of Mirror Lake and the backdrop of mountains. A balcony would have really helped. The hotel does need some improvements as the loose wallpaper in the halls and cracks in the wall make this venue substandard in terms of Ramada quality we have enjoyed elsewhere. The bathroom was small as well. Contrary to other reviews, we felt that the continental breakfast was quite good. A fair price for fair accomodations and though the hotel staff were not the most endearing we've seen, they were allright. It was worth the 6 hour drive from Toronto.

    Disappointed

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Ramada in late June 2003. Our prior stays at the Ramada had been fine, and the location is very good.

    But the June visit was a major disappointment. We booked well in advance and got a very good rate. Now we know why!

    They have demolished a wing of the hotel for eventual reconstruction, but in doing so also removed the outdoor pool. We had no information about that. Also, the "hot-tub" in the indoor pool area was not functioning.

    The morning "continental breakfast" was a joke. There were no attendants... you could plop a bagel into the toaster, grab some cereal, or take a super-sweet donut or cake from a plastic container that was obviously from "somewhere" and simply left on the table. I have traveled quite a bit on business in the United States, and can say that the morning breakfast was somewhere between "shabby" and an embarassment.

    The physical condition of the Ramada has obviously suffered over the past couple of years. Wallpaper is peeling in the hallways, and the place needs attention to basic things like painting.

    We visit Lake Placid 2-3 time a year, and will not go to the Ramada again until it is substantially improved.

    Good luck to anyone booking a reservation for the next year!!!!

    Our experience

    from

    we are a skating team that blocked off 20 rooms with most of us put in an old barn like structure on the left as you enter. we found rooms at 50degrees and many would not heat up much more at high all night long. we got up at 6 a.m. to be at arena at 8. no hot water, 6" of snow in park lot. i called front desk, told maint. man on way in. start at seven. how about the park lot, i was told also maint mans job.the annex we were in had no elevator, snow and ice piled up on handicap ramp no heat in the hall and a 4" gap between the side wall and roof in the hall. we kept asking about the water and were told it was fixed. next day the same. women on the desk were rude and overall less then helpful.TAKE MY ADVICE. GO ELSEWHERE!!

    DOWN HILL

    from

    Hi We have been going to Ramada for years. The one girl at the desk is so unhelpful and just plain old rude. Also, while we were staying the maid just pushed the door open (even though I had the chainlock on the door) at 8:15 in the morning checkout is at noon while I was sitting at the table drinking my coffee with my Pj's on. What is this. NO way! _ Am going to Howard Johnsons, and Mirror Lake where you are respected and the rooms look like they should

    ... and take some time to figure out. Putting in the large floating dock sections takes everyone first-thing on Saturday. Once in the water, a crew of 3 or 4 can handle putting the sections together while everyone else fans out to their assigned work spaces. Throughout the day a golf cart with water and snacks travels around from worksite to worksite, as does Christie, Ben's wife, with their new addition, Abigail, age 8 months.

    ... I leave NY I will have tried syrup from both areas and get back to you:)

    Upon entering into New York, we happened upon Crown Point, which is a historic fort which was owned by the French until the British took it by force. It took the Brits four attempts before taking this fort. All of the fighting to control the fort was in attempt to gain control over a North American empire, however, in 1775 colonist rebels took the fort to aid in their fight ...

    After staying in some dirty, smelly motels along our route so far we checked AirBnB to see if there was anything a little nicer in the Adirondacks for some time away from Interstate roads. We were heading towards Point O Pines, Rachael's camp that I had heard so much about for the past 4 years, and then deeper into the Adirondack state ...
