3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

One of the best things about his place is the locale.
It's smack on Canda St so you can't go wrong there . The back yard is a beautful view of the lake and has a pool that some talented photographer has manged to make look pretty darn nice on the website. It's ok, but be prepeared - for the amt of ppl at the hotel, the pool is most definitely on the SMALL side :>( It will not be your refuge place by the lake as you might imagine from website. You'll have lots of noise and kids , but if you want to go for a quick dip, its there. Grills are down below too.

They just began letting out kayaks free of charge ---nice bonus there !

OK, microwave could not be any smaller so unless it is just a muffin dont count on this place for helping save $ on meals out. Fridge will take care of your basic beverages- that's it.

No coffemaker ( wake up , Lake George! ) and the room (FIRST FLR) was really claustrophobic. Wood walls looked charming on website, but talk about cabin fever . YIKES! Very dark. Decor needs an update and bedding didnt look very clean , but it was hard to tell----the room is really dark and uninviting. If it was a rainy day and you were stuck in this room, you'd go crazy. Thank goodness we had great weather !

We could not have squeezed a playpen in that room, and we had one queen size bed.

Parking was very very tight. If you cant parallel park , you will have a big problem there !

Price was good so if you are looking for a cheap place to say that doesnt involve a camper, you might have come to the right place. Smokers were all over .

This will not be a return spot for me :>(

Room Tip: Ask about room *size* and avoid the rooms with the wood walls. Perhaps the upstairs was nicer...

They had a great view of the fireworks from the pool deck. The free ice cream was a nice touch. They recently got kayaks that we used every day at no charge. My daughter and i loved them They don't have a beach but they have a dock with access to the lake and a couple of BBQ's. They had free coffee at the front and the managers couldn't be more accommodating. The location was ideal for walking into town. The rooms were clean and in line with what we expected for the price.

Let me first say I did not have a great feeling about this motel when I booked it. But apon checkin I was shocked we stayed in room 15a it had two double beds and a small living room. The room was a bit small but it was clean and comfortable! The staff is nice and attentive! The location is perfect it's far enough away from town that you can't get all the noise but close enough that u can walk. I was disappointed that there was no lake access but they have a small pool with a great view! Theonly downside was the tricky parking if you have an suv it can be a real pain! We stayed for 4 nights and is was roughly 600.00 not to bad!

The motel was nice. Rooms were a good size. We even had a full size air mattress on teh floor. Beds are comfortable. One complaint would be the smoking. The rooms are fine but each room has a bistro table and chairs outside. Almost every room had people smoking constantly in front. So we never sat outside. Maybe they can have a set of rooms without any smoking. There is no beach but there are deck chairs and lake access. From the pictures, we thought there was a beach but that was the motel next door. Owners and office staff were very nice and very helpful. Nice touch with free ice cream for the fireworks.

Was looking for a motel in Lake George for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Wanted to be on the lake and have a clean place... that was of utmost importance. The Lake Motel was very clean. The bathroom was spotless. The rooms are a little tight for 4 people, but we made due. Office staff was very nice and helpful with any questions. It was nice being on the lake and had access to kayaks.. Reviews had stated that parking was difficult, but we traveled in an SUV and had no problem backing into the covered garages.

Very helpful and friendly staff! We were able to check in early. The room was neat and clean and the motel is close to everything. We did the Island Adventure. Awesome! They take you on a boat ride to an island in the center of the lake and leave you there to explore, swim, picnic for as much of the day as you would like. The water was so clear! We swam and swam and enjoyed every minute. ( We stayed on the island three hours) The night we were there there were fireworks on the lake. The view for the motel decks was great. In addition they gave you free ice cream while you watched. We would like to come back again sometime.

stayed 2 nights, got a good price for a double room no view, bath was small, beds not comfortable. the property itself is ok, small pool/deck area. parking was tricky, very narrow entry/exit. would not pay extra for "lakeview" because there really isn't any. probably won't stay here again, did not like the layout/feel of the property.

Room Tip: dont' pay extra for a "lakeview" room
