This former Best Western sits right in the heart of Lake Placid and directly on the shore of Mirror Lake, and the views are a major reason to stay here (if you stay on the lake-facing side, of course). Most rooms even have balconies to take full advantage of the scene. You can even grab a complimentary canoe or kayak and go paddling on the lake, right outside your door. Rooms are comfortable, if a little bland -- look for them to get a makeover soon. Suites aren't worth the extra money, though they have nice extras like fireplaces and fridges or whirlpool tubs; in some, a wall creates two cramped rooms instead of a single large one.
