We go to the track each summer. This time we were scouting Lake George for a place for a few friends and family to get together for a group vacation. Well the place is not a resort! Over priced big time. The owner seemed like a nice guy. But the place cost $192.00 for one night. Not worth it. No... More

My sister and I stayed here last weekend and went white water rafting, The beach area was very clean and nice. The room was small but were only sleeping in there. The room was clean and fresh towels were brought in the next day. We meet Bob and talked with him and thought he was very nice and he asked... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week last summer. Rooms are small and reek of mold and "oldness". In our room, the broken box spring on the bed frame was right up against the front door, so that you can't fully open it. Cleaning staff was nice enough. Owners are "strange" to say the least. I didn't expect... More

First trip to Lake George and Golden Sands Resort. Customer service was wonderful. Excellent suggestions on places to eat in the area. The rooms (we had 2) were spotless and cleaned every day. The beach was kept very clean. Perfect resort to relax and enjoy the Lake and scenery. Will definitely return again.

Some of these reviews are bizarre, not at all in line with our experience which was positive. My BF and I are middle aged and this resort fit our needs to a T. We didn't want a large, expensive room with a lot of frills since we expected to spend most of our time away, sightseeing. But when we were... More

I have to agree with some of these reviews. Although Golden Sands is in a great location, the lake area was not inviting. My room was noisy with the sound of cars. It was a far walk to the lake. There was no view of the lake from our room. The grounds did little to impress me, and I couldn't... More

I'm really shocked at the owner of this hotel. Instead of taking on board honest criticism of his motel here he resorts to slandering his guests. You're too fat! You're a redneck! Your baby's diapers stink not our rooms! I sincerely urge all potential customers to read all the reviews here - you'll notice some common complaints and there is... More

Very very very displeased. Ive always heard such wonderful things about Lake George so I decided to take a long weekend there. I came across this place in my search, and with it's name i was hooked. Sounded like paradise. When i showed up , it was far from that. The "golden sands" were a rocky muddy brown mess. The... More

If you plan on sitting in the filthy room all day and not making a peep, and you don't mind being watched the entire time By someone with binoculars. Than stay here. Their customer service was not only horrible, but we were ripped off. We had multiple rooms, containing grandparents down to babies. And we were taking advantage of. We... More
