I would be the first to tell you that the rooms are somewhat outdated and small. But for our group, the location (Close to SUNY Plattsburgh) and the beach made out stay wonderful. We fished, swam and went out in the Kayak while staying at Golden Gate. We had two BBQ's with us cooking right next to the sand and... More

Though the exterior of this vintage motel is very basic, the room was fresh and clean and the motel offers it's own private beach with a swimming area roped off in Lake Champlain. It is a great value for folks on a budget and downtown Plattsburgh is walkable for dining (approx 30 minutes). The motel manager is very friendly. Though... More

Stayed one night over July 4th. Great location because we could see the fireworks right on the beach. The room was small. Stated the room could sleep 3. King bed and pull out sofa bed. If the sofa bed was out there was no room to walk in the room. The bathroom was very small. This motel is unique and... More

The place is odd in the fact that the room was very clean with a fridge, microwave and a view of the lake. No vending machines and tenants that hang around doorways for long periods of time was the creepy part. Everyone one was nice but for us it's definitely a one night, passing through kind of place. Don't get... More

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
