We were very nervous about staying here after reading the reviews (I read them after reserving the room). The Colonel is under new management! There are a few kinks to work out as stated by the reviewer before me, but the new owners were very friendly and accomodating. We walked on the grass, and didn't have juice boxes, but I... More

I was nervous when I booked this hotel and read the previous reviews. The management recently changed and they were incredibly friendly and kind- not at all what the other reviews say. There were kinks that need to be worked out- the jacuzzis weren't working and there was only coffee and no breakfast cart. Other than that, the rooms were... More

This location was/is just average..and maybe that's ok, depends on what you're looking for. I don't have negative comments but I don't have any WOW! Moments either. Our feeling was similar to another reviewer's (debra M)...if you are looking for "...clean, QUIET, well run, reasonably priced..." Then I would say it's just fine and those things are what they, the... More

Read several reviews that were very unfavorable of this motel (I agree that it is not a resort, only a motel). Our experience was very favorable. Yes, the showers are very small, that is my only negative but my husband who is a very big biker guy still had no problem taking a simple shower. ( a larger woman would... More

I hope my review will be taken in the proper context by the proprietor and/or the person in charge of operating and promoting the Colonel Williams Motel and Resort. If I felt this establishment had little or no potential I would have politelly chalked up my stay as a lesson learned and not left any comments here. This is not... More

Definitely not worth the money. We paid $130 a night for a tiny room with a queen sized box spring bed that was very uncomfortable. The bathroom wall was slanted so the door didn't even open all the way and the toilet was 3 inches from the wall and the shower wall. It was so right and confined. There was... More

Positive: The facility was extremely clean. Negative: Advertised internet available and air conditioning. The internet only worked when sitting by the office and while their were 2 bedrooms, only one had air conditioning. there was a fan to blow air from one room to the other which was not effective. The pool closed at 6 pm which meant using it... More

Their website states they offer WiFi, heated indoor pool, air conditioning, and up-to-date rooms. The only place we could get internet access was in the hotel office. If the rooms were indeed "up-to-date", we would be able to access the internet in our rooms. When we complained about the lack of WiFi capability, the woman in the office told us... More

Just returned from our 4th stay at Colonel Williams Lake George Motel. The grounds & pool area are picture perfect. Very well groomed. The rooms are impeccable.....A Family owned business that treats you like family. We stayed in a spacious suite with a private balcony. We highly recommend this motel located midway between Lake George Village and the Outlets. An... More

I stayed July 2014 with my kids. The room was clean. We had an issue with no hot water one evening and the staff, consisting of the family, were all very attentive and solved our problem immediately. Lake George Village and Lake George are close by car. I will stay again.
