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

We stayed several days in the Premium East Wing recently as part of a group event. If I were traveling alone, I would have checked out immediately. I re-read the description on their website when we got home and had to laugh; words such as lavish, grace, elegance, luxury, comfort, superb, class, refined, peace, quiet are all inappropriately used describing...

This was our 1st trip to Lake George. We bought a Groupon and off we went. The facility is located in a GREAT spot on Lake George. Literally park your car and spent the rest of the time walking to some really great restaurants, hanging on the lake beach, shopping, drinking, etc. The flip side of our stay was that... More

Picked this hotel due to the ratings and location. The location is perfect. Near all the attractions and outlets. The on-site museum was nothing less than flawless. But what about the rooms? I booked online via Orbitz. The price was fair but not motel cheap. I called 2 hours before to see if early check in was available whereas I... More

Stumbled upon FWH while on Groupon. Purchased the one advertised which was quite misleading on their site. Groupon advertised the room as the main hotel and after researching another site, found that, that was for the motel. I ended up calling and spoke with Mario, he was so pleasant and helpful and I was able to change my plans to... More

Stunning location in the Adirondacks with a gorgeous view of the lake! Upon arrival checking was quick and painless; however, there was no bellman in sight. Our room was not in the main tower but in the wing on the right. We had to haul our luggage and belongings up a flight of stairs. Not a problem for us but... More
