This place is pure vintage! The room was badly in need of updating but it was very clean, quiet, and the bed was super comfy. I was only there for one night and it was rainy and cold but the lake was still amazing! I've never seen a heating system like theirs but it worked, was quiet, didn't smell so... More

Very clean room with a great view\\\\\ We stayed in room 79 on the 2nd floor. A bit inconvenient to bring our stuff upstairs but it was worthwhile to get such a great view of the LAKE. Air conditioner was very noisy but there was a great breeze coming in from the windows. The TV was small and no list... More

I have stayed at this lovely place several times while moving in/out/visiting my SUNY Plattsburgh student. I have also had to cancel or change my plans at the last minute and never had a problem altering. Management is awesome and friendly and I've gotten same room which is at the end on the beach even when it was too cold... More

If you're looking for a very decent budget stay in Plattsburgh, this is it, with a private beach as a huge bonus. Some rooms have kitchenettes, but I didn't see them. Public beach just down the street. Nice! Thanks to manager Joan; friendly and helpful.

The Golden Gate is one of the few (possibly the last) majestic lakefront motels still open on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, New York. Many of the motels have been replaced by medical complexes, condos, office buildings where there once was motel after motel.(I believe at least 5-6 on the old strip). What's sad with this areea now housing private buildings,... More

Good bed. Bathroom window needs covering! At least frostie film over it! No Wi-Fi - would have been nice if there was. No TV channel lists and the remote didn't work like others - wouldn't turn the TV on or off. Beautiful location for summer visitors - right on the water a plus. Very quiet at this time of the...

We were in town for the Plattsburgh State womens basketball finals this week-end, the Golden Gate motel was a great location for us. We needed a place to sleep, shower and go; the bed was so comfortable!! The owner named Joan is a sweethear. We would stay here again, you can't beat $99.00 for the week-end!!!!!!

While searching for a B & B in Plattsburgh I found the Golden Gate which is right on lake Champlain. When I called to book it, the woman quoted the suspiciously low price of $99/2nights. This was a little alarming, but not as scary as realizing that the hotel was one of the many places past the paper mill that... More

Location, location, location !!! Wow ! What a beach ! My wife and I like to kayak, swim, kite surf, bicycle and have a few drinks afterwards on the beach and this is the place.
