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

A very clean, reasonable place. Our room was smallish but comfortable. It is well located, just far enough to be away from the noise of the village but still on the trolley line. My only complaint is that smoking is allowed on the second floor of the porches, but to my knowledge all of the rooms are non-smoking. The smoke... More

Average motel: inexpensive, clean, conveniently located. Beds and pillows were uncomfortably soft. Towels were very thin. We were in a smoke-free room on the second floor. Problem is their smoking area is the second floor balcony...kind of unpleasant to walk out of your room every time and people are outside your door smoking. Our t.v. closed completely on its own,...

My wife & I stayed at Fran Cove from 8/3-10. It was very nice. King bed, lots of cable channels. The trolley stopped right in front of the property. It was far enough away from LG Village to make it more serene, but close enough to everything. The only minor inconveniences were a sometimes weak wifi signal, and the pillows... More

My wife and I had know idea what we had booked . Upon arrival, we found a well groomed cottage like setting. It was beautiful and well maintain. The price for the room was really good and the room were good as well. The only draw back no coffee maker. Had to wait till 8am for your free coffee or... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this cute little motel! We were looking for a place to stay during the 4th of July week, and this was the cheapest motel around. This made me nervous, but the women I spoke with on the phone was very friendly and informative, so it put me at ease. As soon as we pulled up,... More

I booked this hotel based upon the many positive reviews on TA. People were very nice, the hotel was inexpensive, clean, and conveniently located. However, the room smelt musty, and the beds were uncomfortably soft. In hindsight, I would have rather spent more and stayed elsewhere.

Stayed here one night enroute to Montreal. It was basically the cheapest lodging in the area that had good reviews, but it definitely met my needs. The location is convenient--right off I-87 and the room was clean. Contrary to what others have mentioned, my room was not dark or musty and the bed was decently comfortable. When we arrived, the...

Very nice staff - a very clean and tidy appearance when you drive in. The room we got was a tad dark - could use another table lamp or two to balance the lighting. The bed was very comfortable and all in all we got a good night's sleep. But the thing that needs improving are the bathroom towels -... More
