Lake Placid Summit Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lake Placid
Jour 2 du périple. Cette fois, on se rend à Lake Placid, site des Jeux olympiques d'hiver de 1932 et de 1980. Si on oublie les quelques attrape-touristes autour du village, le reste est très bien.
On loge au Summit Hotel, endroit que je recommenderais sans problème. La rue principale est jonchée de boutiques, on a magasiné un bon coup.
So the time had finally come for us to cross the border and say good bye to the beautiful and friendly Canadian people. There was some apprehension I will admit. We had our story straight, had a travel destination and had all required passports at the ready. We were two Australian residents, driving a car purchased and insured in British Columbia heading into New York State to visit for less than 90 days. We had a flight out of the country and had enough money to look after ...
10 August, 2001 with a return on 15 August,2001. Also hiked here 2003 and on several other ocassions. Best time to visit is summer, at least for me. Enough winter experience in Ottawa so don't need even more. For us the reason to go there, was to climb the 46 peaks. Each of these 46 peaks is to be 4000 feet or more in altitude. Began to hike the easier ones ...
... a few mementos. At the last store we bought a plastic sled and headed out to find a hill. We ended up back at the lake where Ryan had gotten snow in his shoes the day before. The boys had a few turns and with each one they got a little further than the one before. Jay, of course, was digging and smoothing to make the best track possible with a bit of a jump at the end. On his last go, Ryan managed to get up and over the jump but Jay just crashed into it, lol.
On our last ...
... for a hands on experience to enhance learning, where we felt fur and bogs under our feet, smelled animals and plants, handled skulls of many species from these mountains, and crawled through and under habitats on exhibit. After 2.5 hours we pulled ourselves away for our 4 plus hour drive to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lake Placid Summit Hotel
Should be condemned
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
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
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.
This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We went in April of 2003.
Not that bad!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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
