Room was very basic but clean. The room smelled of a very strong odor. I think they should have spent some of the money that spent on their pool and lobby and put it into their rooms. No hair dryers, but the office did lent me one.

Decided to stay after driving home from Lake Placid. Cheap rate, clean room, lake view, pool and great location. Just what we needed. Room was clean and neat. Free breakfast was ok. We were able to walk to the beach, play ground and town. Will stay again if needed.

The hotel room was neat and clean. The cleaning staff was excellent . The continental breakfast was ok. The pillows were not comfortable, the shower was the worst part. You were never sure if you would freeze or get burned. The water temp fluctuated real bad. Not sure if I would stay there again

Love staying at the Forge Motel in Old Forge. The staff is very friendly. They have an indoor pool in the guest area. The rooms are fairly older, BUT they continue to keep the rooms clean and comfortable. I have been coming to Old Forge for over 50 years and the Forge has been a mainstay for folks year after...

A group of fellow motorcyclists and I have stayed at The Forge Motel during late May or early June for the last ten years in a row. We always opt for the non-air-conditioned units that are closest to the water. (You rarely need the A/C this time of year in the Adirondacks.) Great view from the Adirondack chairs outside each...

Hubby and I stayed here technically during the off season, the weekend before Memorial Day weekend during Old Forge's Paddlefest. Our stay at this hotel was excellent. First off, let me mention that the hotel is dated. It is obviously a throwback to the days gone by where the Adirondacks were THE place to be during the summer with your... More

Very basic but beautiful view and close to town deer walk right up to your room. Enjoyed the serenity of this motel. Friendly staff too would stay again and would recommend it to my friends. Short walk into town where all the activity is. Near the water slide park as well for families with children.
