The location is great, the view is spectacular! Not expensive, the rooms are small but great for us as we just sleep in them. We go to local restaurants every night for dinner, but they do have grills available. Also a refrigerator and microwave in all rooms. We have stayed here 4 times and wil be going again this summer.... More

We stayed for 4 nights and it was nice to be on the lake. The hotel itself was more like rooms that felt like cabins. There was a small bathroom, refrigerator and microwave. We had adjoining rooms with family members which made it nice to visit together. There is no pool as is in the picture, I'm not sure why... More

We loved our stay here with Bob and his staff! Super quiet and quaint beach. Cute little rooms. Loved it. Will definately go back! Lake George itself is very touristy and much like Niagara falls but if you get out of town far enough it is like heaven on earth!

I stayed there this passed weekend. Two rooms on the lake. Place was clean and the view of the lake was spectacular. I have stayed in Lake George every year for the last 25. I don't go to a place to interact with the owner, but the short conversation we had was pleasant and he was extremely informative about the... More

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
