This place was nearly perfect for a simple 2 night stay. If you're just looking for a nice room to stay in during a stay in the area, Fran Cove is your place to go. Much more affordable than nearly all other motels in the area, has everything except a microwave (didn't even need one anyways), has air conditioners that... More

While visiting family in the Lake George, NY area and wanting to have my privacy, I have chosen to stay at the Fran Cove Motel 3 times over the past year. I am very impressed with the consistent quality each time, and at a cost of $50-60/night. It is not the Ritz, but for this price you can't beat it.... More

Fran Cove is a nice place and that's not something to take for granted in Lake George. Over the past 30 years we have tried at least 15 motels in the area and a lot of them left us wanting for various reasons. Our Fran Cove room was clean and reasonably quiet and located a 15-minute walk from the center... More

Clean enough place with a pool, a couple of picnic tables and a charcoal grill. You're not getting the Ritz here, but nice enough. The $1.00 shuttle bus around town stops right in the motel parking lot, but even if you had to walk, it's only about a 20 minute stroll to downtown. Sidewalks the whole way.

We stayed here for just Saturday night the last weekend in June as we were headed to the Jazz Festival at SPAC on Sunday. Fran Cove is a pleasant place to stay. We spent the day at the Town beach and just came to sleep at the hotel. The rooms are average motel rooms, but clean. The pool was sparkling...very... More

Very affordable, clean and inviting with well-kept grounds and friendly staff. Clean towels, clean sheets, new bathroom fixtures--what more can you ask for? Right on the trolley line and a nice walk into town (although sidewalks would be a plus!).

Once again I had a great stay at the Fran Cove Motel...This time we had a room on the first floor and liked it better than the second floor. Did not have to climb stairs. My Army buddy thought the rooms were excellent for the price and well maintain. He plans to come up with his wife next time and... More

First of all it is extremely budget friendly. That being said, I was a little nervous about hat we were going to get. I was delightfully surprised. Awesome location less than 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle. On the trolley stop. Super clean rooms, friendly staff. Nice pool and swingset for the little ones. No the curtains and bed... More

We stayed for one night, June 20th as a half way mark to New York City. I have been coming to Lake George since I was a child with my family, but I have never travelled as a couple until this time. We were looking for an average room, not expensive, since it was for one night only. For $50.00... More

We made last minute reservations and got a good room. We were up on the second floor in the front, good size room, clean and comfortable. Motel has been in the family for over 50 years and the owners take good care of their customers and do their best to make the stay pleasant. We didn't spend alot of time... More
