So, this isn't a princess at a pauper rate place. But it is a gem. The bed was good. The room was clean in general and the bathroom was clean in particular. It hasn't had a lot of money spent on keeping up with the joneses. But everything worked. The staff was smiling and particularly kind. The Gentleman blessed me... More

We stayed a couple of nights. Although clean, the place is old and dilapidated. The air conditioner did not blow cold air even at the highest setting. The refrigerator was unplugged and it never got cold enough to chill 6 cans of soda. The soda machine took my money, didn't give soda or refund my money. The front desk did... More

Gentleman Johnny's has the rustic feel of Old Lake George. It is only 1 1/2 miles from Lake George Village, without the high prices! Though the buildings are of older construction, it was clean and well kept, and very comfortable! The breakfast provided was very simple; bagels or toast with cheese and coffee, but suited me I didn't have opportunity... More

Booked this place for a last minute event. It was clean and served the purpose because we didn't spend much time in the room but the bed was comfortable and the we were the only people at the place. It needs to be updated and appears "tired" but with a little love and some investment into the property could be... More

This place has definitely been "lived in" but it was clean, comfortable, everything worked fine, and best of all for me, was able to accommodate my family of 6 in one 2-bedroom suite. It's hard to find places that can sleep six, and I am so glad I found Gentleman Johnny's. There was parking right outside the room, a picnic... More

They have a nice pool but we did` nt use it due to the weather. The room was spacious but did not provide you with any amendies. They... More

Stayed here one night prior to 4 nights at another property and it wasn't a great experience. Everything is old and worn at this property. Beds are hard and covered with very old spreads. TV is an older type and the bathroom toilet broke with the first flush. Stand-up shower was cramped and carpet was first generation outdoor carpet and... More

Booked a 'suite' for a weeks stay, stayed one night. Bed linen was clean and fresh and location good but these were the only 2 positive points. Room small, needs totally updating, bathroom looked okay initially but when you really looked it needed a good clean. The kitchen, well, DIRTY. Blind greasy, over stove extractor fan - grease dripping off... More

The room at Gentleman Johnny's was cozy (stayed in #1 this time which is one of their better rooms), and the staff members here were very friendly and hospitable. Their pool is absolutely beautiful (with views of the lake) and I hope to visit again next summer.
