Heading to Saratoga Springs to introduce my sister to its magic, we needed an affordable place to stay. As I was looking for a hotel, I thought we might be able to add Lake George to our itinerary and thus was looking for something between the Lake and the racetrack. The Queensbury Hotel fit the bill at just over a hundred dollars a night - that's at least one third of what rooms cost in the Springs. About twenty minutes from Lake George and twenty five from Saratoga, the Queensbury is a renovating older hotel. It has small as well as unusually large rooms, with tall ceilings and large heavy doors, indicative of the era in which it was originally built. Our bathroom and shower were yet to be renovated and the water pressure was something to be desired but my sister had a brand new shower and loved it. Beds were comfotable and the hotel was very clean, and the air-conditioning worked beautifully - a requirement on such hot and humid summer days. My husband and I had a comfortable room with a King size bed, with a dresser, sitting chair and small coffee table, and a desk. My sister had a room with two full beds and enough room to have made it into two rooms - which was great when we collected in her room to see our photos from the day or to have room service dinner.
We ordered from Fenimore's Bucket List, two sandwiches - a Reuben and a Chicken Salad Melt - and Chicken Wings - we were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and affordable.
If you're in this region of the country and want to be between the mountains and the racetrack, I would recommend the Queensbury.
