I gave this one star because I can't give zero. I wanted to rent a wave runner with my kids, and saw online that they were rented here. I called ahead to ask if they had 3 person wave runners and was told they did. I specifically mentioned that I would be taking my 2 kids out, so I needed... More

Waverunners/jetskis as well as boats are issued a capacity rating by the U.S. Coastguard relevant to safety. We at the Thunderbird Marina have a higher safety standard because we are on the lake everyday with a great variety of scenarios. If the riders are large people, if they are non-swimmers, if the water is particularly rough, if the requested third... More

The pictures on the website are very nice, unfortunately the new hardwood floors and paint are where it ends. My idea of a villa is not a motel which is what this is. Upon entering the room it had a musty smell. There was no curtain on the window in the very tiny bathroom so I hung an extra towel... More

We love it here this is my fourth year coming with my husband who's family has been staying here for over 30 years. This is a great place to make memories with your family. We even got engaged up here in front of the waterfall right off the lake. Our son is 2 and is already an avid fisherman fishing... More

I have been vacationing at the Thunderbird for the past 5 or 6 years. As the Thunderbird has made the transition to the new 'Villas On Lake George/Thunderbird Resort & Marina', there have only been solid improvements made. The rooms are affordable and comfortable. The access to the lake is beautiful and easy. The grounds are lovely, as is the... More

Come prepared. It's way less than what meets the eye. Rooms are not very clean. Toilet and kitchen supplies are not in the room. Check out is too early 10am and staff is unwilling to extend even by an hour.

Kitchens are fully stocked including tableware, glassware, cookware. We make every attempt to also provide some specialty also like corkscrews, can/bottle openers etc. Sometimes we are asked for an extra large frypan, extra large pot etc. If we have it, we provide it. Unfortunately, some travelers do not ask for it and then write a negative review. With regards our... More

I stayed at thunderbird because you rents boats and wave runners directly from hotel rather then drive to marinas. I asked Lenny when I checked in about renting boats etc.. and he said he had no insurance but he was getting insurance monday. When I checked out on Sat. he still had no insurance. I paid extra for a hotel... More

First off, we have been to Lake George MANY times. Even as a kid my family vacationed at Lake George. With our family we have stayed many places. Some very good, some not so much. This is definitely one of the better places to stay on the lake. Room was very clean (and cleaned daily by the maid service), short... More
