Anyone have any direct experience with Swiss Acres?
Know where it is located (western outskirts of town, near Luna Loca, look on that resprt map, at 1B, 1C), but never stayed there. I think it's got some kind of miniature golf thing associated with it, and it struck me as a very family-with-kids oriented place to stay.
Also, I'm sure the shuttle is the Lake Placid town/mountain shuttle
that is actually free. I would have thought that hotel is too far (west) outside of town to have a front door pickup, but the schedule shows it stops right in front of the place.
I've stayed at Art Devlin's Olympic Motor Lodge
, (that shuttle schedule reminded me of it, ... it's the last stop for the shuttle), it might be what you are looking for, it's inexpensive, nice rooms, you can get any number of discount lift tickets from them (it doesn't depend on # of nights or # of people in room), and can also walk to some bars and restaurants within two blocks, ... a few more blocks if you want to be in the heart of the downtown.
