“Great Escape!”

Great place to stay with children, so many different activities and huge bonus is the indoor water park. The hotel is very clean and the staff is extremely pleasant and eager to assist with any of our needs

This was our 2nd time staying here. Both times we loved it. Two best parts: the indoor water park (everyone had fun!) and the mattresses. Best nights sleep ever. Our room (a premium suite) was huge with a nice kitchenette area.

Our stay was from August 3rd-4th.The first thing that struck me was how "worn" the facility looked over all. I booked 2 rooms ( one for myself and children and another for my elderly parents), so i spent over $700.00 combined..I guess I just did not expect the some of the common areas to be so used looking. Lord knows they charge enough ( with no reduced rate for 2 almost 80 yr old people who would not be using either of the parks, so Im not sure why they cant put money back into the facility to make it look alittle "crisper". The tub leaked in our room and the bunk bed was so unstable it kept waking my daughter up throughout the night. The bedspread was sooo dirty we took it off and stuffed it in the closet . The staff were "o.k."- most were cordial, although the front desk staff looked liked that was the last place they wanted to be. I travel alot and there is a huge push for customer service amoungst the chain hotels-apparently this hotel does not feel they need to go out of their way..
All things considered, I wouldnt go back; I would sooner go to many of the other water parks/amusement parks, like CoCo Key in Connecticut, before I would spend that kind of money again-The hotel associated with CoCo Key has no threatening signs in the room of a $150 charge if you do not evacuate your room by 11:15am on your departure date... another thing you wouldnt see at a chain hotel.

Room Tip: make sure you get a room on an upper floor.. main floor very noisy, both on the same floor and over...

We booked with $75 off if you booked 2 or more nights and also received not only unlimited use of the indoor water park but 3 days of tickets for each guest for the Six Flags Great Escape theme park as well. For a family of four that's at least a $360 value in itself.

The indoor water park was clean and well monitored and more importantly for me, heated.

The rooms themselves were clean and comfortable and everyone at all of the great escape venues was very friendly.

Room Tip: we just went with a basic suite instead of one of the themed rooms and we spent so little time in th...

Dirty room, Wifi problems, Unfriendly staff, Over priced for what was expected based on their web site. However the inside water park was ok for the children. Would not recommend this Lodge. There are many better places to stay in the Lake George area.

Dear Boulevard,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I sincerely apologize your stay with us was not fully satisfying and I also apologize for the lack of service provided by our staff in addressing any issues you encountered. This is not the level of service we strive to provide and I am sorry this was what you experienced at our hotel. I am glad you found value in our indoor waterpark as it is a great additional perk to staying at the Lodge. Thank you for your review and we hope that you choose the Great Escape Lodge again in the future!

Sincerely,
General Manager

My kids loved this hôtel! We had a suite with 3 queens and Bunked beds.

The hôtel is clean. water slides were perfect for kids under 10, although they should heat the water a little more. A bit expensive too.

had read a lot of negative posts about this place and was nervous as to what I was getting into, but I can say I'm glad I stayed there. The room was a traditional sweet and was just fine for my family of 5, it was ready when we arrived and was very clean and the housekeeping staff kept it that way our entire stay. our room was on 2nd floor and we slept great every night, it was not loud at all. the exterior and common areas of hotel were also clean.check in was fast and friendly. indoor water park was great, we all hit the slides mom/dad 14yo/16yo/5yo and had a blast. the location is great if your doing six flags great escape, you walk right from the lodge over a bridge to the entrance. johnny rockets food was exellent. Over all I would recommend this as a great place to stay and my family plans on going again.
