My cousins and I take an annual trip together and this year we decided to take our talents to Lake George. Our families used to vacation there when we were children, so we were looking forward to going back... Before we ever got to Lake George, I knew we were going thoroughly enjoy our stay...not because Surfside is perfectly located... More

Very nice experience. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It started getting busy toward the end of the week and parking was at a premium then. The grounds and rooms were immaculately kept. Beds were comfortable. We love the fact that we can walk downtown from this location. We don't usually eat a huge breakfast every day and like to... More

We went up on a spur of the moment 3 day trip with the kids. Our first nite we stayed at another place on the lake nearby and it was very small and the room had a really bad odor to it that was coming from the drains in bathroom that was just about unbearable . So the following morning... More

Stayed in the Superior Lakefront Room. We were on the beach level. Room was excellent size. Room was clean. Great use of space. Felt like we had plenty of room without tripping over each other and still had plenty of floor space. Beautiful view of the lake. Although it unfortunately rained most of our stay we were able to go... More

I stayed at the Surfside from 7/16-7/19. We booked the summer special, which included four days three nights, breakfast vouchers for each day we stated for each family member, Dinner voucher for each day for each family member and 4 free attractions. It was well worth the price. We stayed in the front hotel rooms. The room was big and... More

We planned a family trip and booked four rooms. The inclusive package looked like it was a great deal for the 16 people we were bringing up to Lake George, but when we arrived and checked in it was another story. I have a handicapped child and made clear to the desk when I called what my needs were. She... More

I just returned home from this hotel and would never stay there again. While the staff were friendly and the front desk was helpful, the hotel itself is what needs work. I don't know where to begin really. The accommodations did not have a resort feel. The pool looked old and the beach was very small. The beds are uncomfortable... More

The hotel itself has an old time feel to it but it's very neat and clean in appearance.Great breakfast buffet (we purchased vouchers which included it among many other offerings,I recommend getting these vouchers!). Within walking distance to town which is approx 3 blocks... More
