Had we been charged $100 I would have been satisfied. In no way does the room we stayed in warrant a $145 price tag. (Outdated and the very definition of no frills). On positive, room was clean( though remnants of smoking lingered) and staff friendly. Have been vacationing in ADK for last 45 years and like to support local businesses... More

bspruce, Owner at Blue Spruce Motel, responded to this review

So sorry to hear your trip was not up to your expectations. I personally went into your room prior to your stay to turn up the heat and make sure the extra towels were in the for your extra guests. . We do charge an extra $10 per extra person over the age of 12 for more than 2 adults... More

The Blue Spruce is perfect for staying in Old Forge. It is Very Clean, Very Comfortable and the owner Dianne is very friendly. At the wedding we attended people complained about dirty rooms at the places they were staying. Not our room, it was immaculate. My husband is in the hotel/restaurant/hospitality business and we rate this Motel 5 stars. Very... More

Though absolutely no frills, this modest hotel provides an easy walk to downtown, clean, large rooms with a mini fridge and a wonderful outdoor seating area and pool. The owner is very helpful and accommodating and there is the option of a well functioning AC or open windows. Though close to the main road, the traffic is not too bothersome,... More

This motel may be older but it's very clean and all employees are very accommodating. If you snowmobile they are located right on one of the trails just a few very short yards from your door and there is room to park your snowmobile trailer. The rooms are nonsmoking so they don't stink. People that do smoke, smoke outside. Everyone... More

My husband and I stayed one night in Old Forge and found the Blue Spruce Motel to be just what we needed. It was clean, convenient and comfortable. Water pressure was great! Bed was comfortable. Nothing fancy but we weren't looking for fancy. The owner was pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a small, well-run, nicely situated motel that's perfect for travelers looking for a good base camp for their Old Forge fun. We spent two nights in a king bed room, and found it meticulously clean, quiet and comfortable. We would definitely return. We visited on Sunday and Monday nights, figuring things would be quiet, and were surprised to... More

We had an efficiency (w little kitchen) for three nights. For the money, I thought it was a good value. The furnishings are a little older but we really just needed a place to sleep. We used the pool several times and ate pizza at the picnic table poolside as well. Very nice owners. Would come again!

I hadn't had the privilege of staying at the motel itself since things didn't work out as hoped however its customer service was excellent. Very friendly, recommended I stay at another nearby motel and even paid for half my bill there. Knowing that customer service demands the best, I definitely will try to stay at Blue Spruce next time I... More
