We really enjoyed our stay. Room was clean and roomy. Even had TV with lots of stations. Great WiFi connection. Pool was nice. Short walk to beach and playground. Will stay here again. Cons: free breakfast had limited selection. Cold cereal would be a nice addition for children. Loved the view.

Stayed recently for two nights over the St. Pat's Day weekend. Location is right in town so convenience is one thing the place has going for it; you can walk to the shops, bars and restuarants. The lobby area was nice; high ceilings, stone fireplace (gas), some nice furnishings. Pool looks over the lake; nice view but the water was... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. Feedback from our guest is very important to us, as it helps us to improve. We have regulated the temperature in the pool and it is 80 degrees. I have personally spoken to the staff about them making small talk in front of the customers. We have recently... More

On the return trip from Lake George the weather caused us to stop in Old Forge. After looking over the motels, we picked the Forge Motel. This motel offers a indoor pool, great views of the waterfront. While looking out of the large picture window, a Whitetail deer came up and looked us over. Also out on the lake we... More

We visited Old Forge to attend the Stems and Steins Festival as well as the Inlet Fall Festival, and stayed at the Forge Motel. It is an older place, but the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and courteous. We had a great view of the Lake as well. There is an indoor swimming pool and most... More

I have been staying here for many many years and we are still very happy with everything. Rooms are very clean and everyone who works there is so friendly. Rates are very reasonable for the town and the location on the upper level is to die for. Thanks again for another wonderful weekend!

My friends and I go to Old Forge for a weekend every year and stay at the Forge motel. The rooms are always very clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We love it that they have WIIFI access in all the rooms. The view is beautiful and I wouldn't stay any where else. The furnishings could stand... More

First off, this place is somewhat dated. The rooms were probably 80's vintage. But you hopefully aren't hanging out in the room anyways. The location is perfect. Right in the center of town. We were in the upper building, overlooking old forge pond. Great view. Sliding doors with adirondack chairs. The rooms are plenty big enough. Bathrooms are not bad.... More

We stayed at the Forge Motel while we were in town for a wedding. It is an "old style motel" - as is most lodging in Old Forge. The room was very large with a great view of the lake. We had adirondak chairs right outside our sliding glass door. The bathroom is small but has separate sink area. Shampoo/conditioner... More

Stayed here for the first time while here on business. 1950's style family run motel. Rooms are outdated, but clean, large and very convenient to the public beach, and many Old Forge attractions. Water pressure in the shower is fantastic, and the beds are very comfortable! Rates are reasonable, and there is a continental breakfast set out in a beautiful... More

Ranking this hotel against every one I've ever stayed in, I give it a three. But, ranking it against the Old Forge hotels, it's a five. Easily the nicest hotel I've stayed in in Old Forge. It was clean, comfortable, huge rooms, great view, nice people on staff and had wi-fi. It's very basic -- you get soap and towels... More
