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.

Lenny C, Guest Relations Manager at The Villas On Lake George, responded to this review

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

We enjoyed our stay at the Villas. Lenny and his staff was very hospitable and prompt. Reading from the reviews of the other posters, I think your own experience would depend upon whether you get a renovated room, your neighbors, and the price you pay. Luckily our neighbors were super-nice and we got a better rate by calling the owner... More

I am not one to complain but my 11 year old daughter said it very succinctly. This is a "dump ". If the pictures and the description were more accurate then I wouldn't even be writing this review. But they aren't which is why I am so angry and disappointed. The rooms were drab. Supposedly canoes, kayaks and other non-motorized... More

We just spent a week here and loved it! (This is not a paid advertisement though it may sound like one.) We had never been to Lake George before and did a tremendous amount of research in planning our trip to try and find the best accommodations with the right mix of features for our group. In the end you're... More

My cousin and I spent the past weekend here. I have to admit it was one of the few places that had a vacancy for this weekend. The reviews posted had me a little concerned, but then again I have been to several Lake George motels and some are pretty nasty.I called the resort and Lenny promptly got back to... More

As I read the reviews below, I find it hard to believe. My vacation experience at the Thunderbird was nothing short of perfect! I spent many summers at Lake George as a child and now live in Orange County, CA. My family still lives back east and we met in Lake George for our children to spend time together. From... More
