Wife said she would leave me if I didn't stop. It was a Saturday night in Lake George NY and I had no reservations we stopped in and they had a room. Nice clean motel nice bath plenty of hot water and towels. Only problem was a small musty smell in the room or would have been 4 star review.... More

We booked this hotel randomly for a weekend getaway with the family and I must say we were pleasantly surprised (especially after reading all the bad reviews). New owners were very accommodating. We were able to have a late check in after a long work day and a late check out - without extra fees. The manager is willing to... More

...clean and quiet. I was a little puzzled by the lack of a coffee maker of any kind in the room, but not put off as we enjoy finding a good diner-type breakfast to start the day (there are a few in/near LG and Bolton..). It was as advertised. The front desk (the owner's niece, as it turns out) was... More

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
