“Good location, good service, clean place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is located walking distance from the main area of Lake George. We decided to stay because we were only staying night, but I would go back and stay a few more. The I door pool is small but it provided an additional option for the kids. The outdoor pool was nice although tou will get splashed if your sitting in the chairs next to the pool. It was clean, and the breakfast was good enough to make my three boys full. It's not fancy, but perfect for staying on a budget. Only negative is there is no iron or microwave in the room, although there is a facility to use an iron.... And a microwave near the snacks. We used both and servives without them. Overall good place to stay!

This place was great. It was right at the edge of town, so it was really nice and quiet. The room was super comfortable. The staff was awesome. Super accommodating and helpful. The cleaners were very nice and gave you whatever you needed. We didn't participate in the continental breakfast, but I saw several people eating theirs on the many tables on the balcony and it looked really nice. Highly recommended!

Stayed here with the family the first week of July. This was not the first time we had stayed here, but it was the first in a number of years. The hotel is as clean as we remember it. Some of the long-time staff have moved on, but those on duty during our stay were very friendly and helpful. The weather could have been better, but we realize we could not hold that against the hotel or Lake George. Even with the heat, we still enjoyed some family time both in Lake George and at the pool. The kids enjoyed making their own waffles at the free continental breakfast. As we recall, this was new addition to the breakfast. Mom had to help, but by the end of our stay, the kids were doing quite well. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the Econo Lodge Lake George Downtown. We plan on returning one or two more times before the summer is over.

Room Tip: The elevator is helpful for families with lots of suitcases. Otherwise, the stairs are very conveni...

Welcome back, Roger! Yes, there have been staff changes since your last visit. One thing that hasn't changed, however, is our commitment to quality service to all of our guests Glad to hear that our new waffle maker was a hit with your family. From what we're hearing, other guests also like the newest addition to our continental breakfast. Hurry back!

I have been staying at this Econo Lodge for a number of years with my Volunteer Fire Company for the Hudson Valley Convention. I have stayed in other hotels/motels in the area and now I would not think of going anywhere else. The staff is friendly and feels like family. the place is immaculate, including pool area. The location is perfect, you can stay at the pool or walk into town. This year they created a room for the contenental Breakfast and it was great, you can sit with your party or talk to other guests, and it makes it feel more like home.

hotel was nice. wasnt expecting anything fancy. there are a lot of hotels in this area right next to each other. so i stayed for three nights and it's fine. two bed, flat screen tv. sink is in the bathroom. toliet area is a little tight, but it's fine. bathtub and shower worked. beds were cleaned and the carpet was fine. no smelly odors. check in was in a small office area not the usual gigantic lobby area with couches and plants. cant really complain about anything. oh, i couldnt find the continential breakfast area, but im in lake george so i took a 15 min walk and had pancakes at the pancake house. oh btw, the town was a 5 min walk away.

I have been traveling to this Econo Lodge now for about eight years with 10 other bikers. I would not think about going to another hotel in that area. I, and the others have always been treated as family. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The Pool area is the perfect place for groups to mingle, and make new friends. Some also that come back year after year. See you next June. Thank You!
