My family have been staying here on and off for 25+ years. It is simple, clean, nice rooms, nothing fancy in a place where fancy is not needed. Spend the days out and about in and around Long Lake... a wonderful little town right in the middle of the Adirondacks.... walk the Northville Placid Trail, rent a boat at the... More

Motel staff was friendly, room and bathroom clean, room large, nice view of Long Lake. No step entrance, small bathroom with walk in shower only with low step -no grab bars, satellite TV, coffee maker, warm blankets and clean sheets, bed seemed shorter than normal. Good basic motel. Would definitely stay again.

After looking at other motels and cottages in this area, my party decided on shamrock. Not a lot open this time of year. Great sunsets and love the views of the mountains. The room was nice and well maintained.

I hope if you stay here you are an antisocial individual with no family or friends. It is against their firm, inflexible rules (which they do not tell you when you reserve in advance) that you may not have any, that's ANY, visitors come to your cabin. Not for lunch. No matter their age. No exceptions. NONE! We were totally... More

Stayed at this cozy Motel on our trip home from Canada. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Location had wonderful view of Long Lake and the woods. Very quiet and has a beautiful private beach. Wished the weather was warmer or we would have used the beach and Kayaks to rent (a very reasonable rate) more. Owners were very friendly and... More

We made short trip up to Long Lake in August and decided to try the Shamrock. We didn't know what to expect but were hopeful based on the tripadvisor reviews. We stayed in the motel part and found it to be clean and comfortable although I found the bed a bit saggy. The staff were friendly with a fast and... More

I did not set my expectations too high for the Shamrock as I was anticipating an old outdated Adirondack motel. And that's what I got. But it came with a stunning view, especially at sunset, the small private beach was great, the lake was quiet, the cabins are overlooking the lake and are as close as they can be to... More

We've come to the Shamrock for years...my son the toddler who yelled at the chipmunks now watches his own son do the same. It's been great every time...swimming, boats, lawn games, inside game room...a great safe place for kids. Our family has had short motel stays and long cabin stays and never had a complaint. Last week I comfortably used... More

We arrived from Raquette Lake in the dark, so were unprepared for the size of the Shamrock property. Situated on the shores of Long Lake, with its own sandy beach and gentle waters, the Shamrock offers both winterized and summer accommodations. Our immaculately clean motel room was nicely appointed with a small refrigerator, wireless internet, and a TV with more... More

My husband and I have traveled all over the Adirondacks. We found Shamrock on the internet it is far better than we expected to see. The room was updated, not like some of the other motels in town. The property is quite large with plenty of activities to enjoy. We especially enjoyed the view from our room overlooking the sunset... More
