My family and I spent a week every summer at Scottys back in the 60's and 70's. When my wife decided she wanted to go to Lake George, I jumped at the chance to tell her of the great memories from Scottys. Man was I in for a shock!!! The room itself was fine, but the grounds were horrendous. Filthy... More

Overall the stay was ok. Rooms are a little outdated and smell a little musty. Receptionist has no clue about anything! She could not tell us the trolley schedule and had no idea how to give change. The game room is nice but the little cafe is expensive and the food is not so great.

Perfect Place to just lay your head at night, We brought our boat and didn't spend any time on the property, and would just get up and go out on boat all day, come back shower and go out on the town.. But it is very true what the reviews say, place was empty on labor day weekend, but every... More

Its on the lake, that's the only good thing about it. I can totally deal with an outdated room but this place was frightening. The rooms are smelly, paint peeling in the bathroom and hair all over the spare pillow and open soap on the bathroom sink. Absolutely no grounds keeping or grounds staff at all. At night there are...

Wiburwah had it right. We stayed over the 4th of July 2013 and while the rooms were clean the overall upkeep of the place is not. The beach was dirty with no clean sand. The picnic area needed to be mowed. The lounge they boast about is closed. The pool itself was clean but none of the light fixtures around... More

I started going to Scotty's in the early '80's, with a boyfriend who had a little sailboat. I guess we never really cared about the room or anything because we were on the lake all day, so it was all good. I moved to FL for 7 years, and when I came back to NY, I started taking my kids... More
