FWH gets a lot of thumbs downs. I think most of that is attributable to the motel like add-ons, one on each side of the main building. People really don't seem to like them. I stayed in the main bldg w/a perfect, gorgeous view of Lake George. Service was excellent at desk but I did not try the restaurant. Great... More

Just got back from our week long vacation in Lake George. Our stay at FWH was fantastic. We stayed in the L suite which was perfect for our family of 5. The grounds, pool and view are the best in Lake George. The front desk was very nice and helpful. It was very relaxing sitting on the veranda and enjoying... More

The rooms are always great to stay in. Very spacious and comfortable. No regrets! As usual, we were welcomed back by the manager Sam and his great staff. The restaurants local to the hotel are great and everything was perfect. The veranda is always an amazing place to kick back, relax, and watch the view of the amazing Adirondack Mountains... More

We attended the Cadillac Grand Nationals here this month, Stayed in the older motel style accommodations and had a first floor lake-view room. The room was comfortable and clean, but seriously in need of up-dating. Peeling paint, worn areas, etc., but we did get a super rate through the show. Did it detract from our enjoyment, not in the least,... More

Went there on 4th of July weekend for a wedding. The wedding began at 4:30PM. My wife had booked this room in October of 2013, and had called to confirm everything was in place, including the ability to check in early (2:00-2:30). She was told not a problem. We went to check in at 2:00 and were told it would... More

Just a brief 1 night stay so not a lot of detailed info but, ... the hotel is located at the bottom end of Lake ,100 yards or so from the lake in those 100 yards are restaurants and shops that give the spot a old time boardwalk type feel. Thursday night fireworks over the lake was an unexpected surprise.... More
