We made a rather last-minute reservation for the very peak Fall colors weekend and they were most helpful in accommodating our very late arrival after their office had closed for the day. We had a comfortable two-night stay, enjoying the location looking out upon the lake. The place was reasonably quiet considering it's a good-size motel spread out in several... More

The rooms are dingy and dated. Beds and bedding are old and very uncomfortable. There are no amenities in the rooms other than a tv. No coffee maker, hair dryer, or ironing board. The room and bathroom smell of mildew. The maids do nothing more than make the beds. They don't restock anything like cups or shampoo. Worst of all,... More

We've been staying at the Forge Motel for many years. We try to get there 3 X's a year - summer, fall and winter. The Adirondacks are beautiful all year. The Forge Motel is conveniently located at the head of the Fulton Chain of lakes. The rooms offer a beautiful view of the lake. Since it faces east, the sun... More

We stayed at The Forge Motel from Aug 15 to Aug 17. We had two rooms. for two nights and paid more than 500.00. The rooms were very plain. Nothing inspiring from the area. There was no coffee maker, or hair dryer. The bathrooms were moldy with no ventilation. The locks on the sliding doors were broken, in both rooms.... More

I would rate this hotel higher if the price per nite were lower, however, for 120 a nite it lacks amenities. For it's location, it's amenities are pretty much standard. The good part about this hotel is the view, it's location, and it's overall service to its guests. The rooms are cleaned each day, but the room it self is... More

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

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
