I know reviews are hard to read and you just never know what to believe, but read this one, its the facts, and just the facts!! Just stayed last week 8/6/-8/10 with my wife and son. We booked late in the season, and took a chance on staying here not knowing anything but what the reviews online tell you about... More

After staying at Scotty,s for the last 57 yrs from when I was a child the first week of August holds hundreds of memories for 5 generations. In the early years we watched it transform from a family owned motel with snack shack, no pool, bar or lakeside rooms. It expanded and flourished. However owners passed away slowlyly and it... More

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Scotty's this July. We frequently visit Lake George but never stayed at Scotty's- we thought it looked outdated and run down. After learning that it had been renovated we decided to give it a try. I am happy that we did. We stayed in one of the renovated lake side rooms.... More

I took a trip to Lake George with my boyfriend and 3 kids ages 13, 16, and 18 in late July. I found Scotty's online after doing some research on motels that would satisfy our needs. Scotty's was a terrific place to stay and I will definitely stay here again. It is within walking distance of the downtown strip, has... More

My family decided last minute to take a trip to Lake George during the busy summer season. Rooms were scarce around town and Scotty's was able to accommodate us. The location is great, right on the lake, next to town, but far enough away so it is peaceful. The place is under new ownership and they are doing a beautiful... More

Visited Scotty's in mid-July. This was our first time staying there. Similar to what other reviewers stated, Scotty's is in a great location, has a prime piece of property, has done some good updates, but still lacks in some areas. Upon arrival, we wound up upgrading to their "Superior Lakefront Room". For the cost of $250 per night the room... More

Scotty's was perfect for us. The rooms are small, but very clean. TV, Refrigerator and Coffee Maker are included. Scotty's is right on Lake George and gives the option of going in the Lake or in their pool. There is also a volleyball area and swings for the kids. We rented a Kayak for $20.00 for an hour. Basically the... More

My husband returned to the Adirondacks 7/29/14-8/2/14, after honeymooning in Old Forge 27 years ago! We decided to visit Lake George and got a reservation at Scotty's! We really enjoyed our stay! The location is ideal, and the view just pulling into the parking lot is breath taking! The rooms are clean and nice. We enjoyed the mini fridge but... More

We have been going to Scotty's for over 20 years, When we first started going in the 90's it was great, over the years it got worse and worse, the last 5 years it was terrible - beaches weren't raked, grounds were overgrown, I think they lost a lot of the regulars. The original owners sold Scotty's in the fall... More

The positives: The location of Scottys is fantastic. The resort overlooks the lake, very picturesque. Very close to town and activities. The beach is very pretty and there are lots of kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats to rent at a reasonable cost. How ever, the bottom of the lake is "mucky". We saw several people having a hard time in... More
