“Hotrod Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Thank you to Bob and staff for an absolutely wonderful 5 days. The weather was great, the cleanliness over the top, and friendliness of staff and guests was just great. We met new friends from Canada and reunited with our friends for a fun-filled weekend. Looking forward to our visit next year.

individuals you'll see running an Inn. When he tells you he runs a tight ship, believe it - and you'll be glad he does.

The place is spotless and after staying at an amazingly dirty place, you will revel in the difference, as we did. The staff is speedy and friendly.

Very convenient to town, and did I mention how clean the place is? Stay at ABVI, you won't be sorry.

Trust me.

After staying in an efficiency last year, we upgraded to the smaller townhouse for this year's week long vacation and it was exactly what we expected....extremely clean property, love the walking distance to town and our kids enjoyed the playground, pool and ping pong table. We even BBQ'd out back one night this time around. I've read the other reviews about the owner and really think don't think it's an issue. The only knocks are the TV's and couches could use an upgrade and while they got their own wireless this year, it still doesn't reach the entire property so we spent time having to sit by the vending machines to get a signal....but I suppose that forces you to not plug in all the time.... the pluses far outweigh the minuses here, especially considering how filthy a lot of other LG properties are...

Room Tip: Can't speak for the motels but the townhouses/effeciencies are the way to go....

This is the second time we stay at a ABV Inn and we are impressed again. Very clean and comfortable rooms with good air conditioning. Quiet old style motel on the edge of town but walking distance from center of town. A bit of a grumpy owner welcomed us but overlook it, it means people will follow the rules or have to deal with him, assures you that there will not be any noise or parties. I would stay there again if we go back to Lake George

Room Tip: There are 2 floors without elevators motel type. If stairs are a problem ask for ground floor room.

We stayed at this motel on august 19-20th. I think this is one of the best motels to stay at because it is very clean and well kept.The room are comforable and clean and the out side is well maintained. There is plenty of parking and you could walk to the center of all the activaties and restaurant in five minutes.It is very nice to be at the end of the strip when you want to come back to the motel to relax or sleep. The staff were very friendly . This motel has a nice heated pool behind the units and a picnic area with picnic tables and out side grills and a playground area for young kids.I have stayed here many times and recomend it to my friends.

Room Tip: I think the upper rooms are nicer they have a walk along balcony with chairs out side your rooms to...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The hotel is located along Canada street which is the heart of Lake George, NY. The facility itself is acceptable. A little dated but clean and well-kept. There are typical hotel rooms, a couple of rooms with a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub, and two buildings where you can rent the entire building for family or friend get-togethers. For some reason the entire building is not available for events like Americade. The kitchen area is closed off by a locked door. We were told it is due to a cleaning issue. This makes no sense-either hire more cleaning staff or offer the entire building and tell the guest to clean their own kitchen.

The cleaning staff is wonderful and does a great job. The two workers that me and my friends interacted with were friendly and efficient. When we stayed at the facility the vending machine ate our money but a new machine was installed while we were there. There is a play area for children and a couple of small barbecue grills. More grills and outdoor seating are needed.

The reason for my rating of average is the pool and hot tub area. This part of the property needs a major renovation. It is not ventilated properly, has some kind of plastic as walls, and the acoustics are very loud. They should either bring the pool area into the 21st century or close it down. I enjoy relaxing in a hot tub when I am away but could not do so at this hotel.

Overall I would definitely stay at the hotel again. It is convenient and has many more pluses than minuses. Here's the hotel website link: http://www.lakegeorge.com/business/americas-best-value-inn-and-choice-inn-822/website/
