Fran Cove is very well situated. It is just out of the downtown area, so it is nice and quiet at night. Is is also located close enough to downtown that you can walk, take the trolley which passes every 20 minutes or so or you can drive. The pool is GREAT! It is the perfect size, it is very... More

The Fran Cove Motel appears to be a mid-century facility but it has been very well maintained. Our queen room has a bed that looked saggy but is not; it actually is very firm but most comfortable. The pillows are very sturdy; I would have liked at least a third one and one a bit more fluffy as an option.... More

When checking out on Sunday they let us stay a bit after regular checkout time and it made a world of... More

My husband and I stayed here on our way to Wilmington. The place is clean and reasonable. The rooms are dated but everything works. They have coffee in the morning for the guests which is nice. It is a great location because it is away from the hectic downtown core but still within walking distance to it....no struggles to park.

First time to Lake George and a brief stay of one night. Usually I do not stay in motels, but gave this one a try for a brief visit. Appeared relatively clean and neat for an older accommodation. Staff was excellent and location was a slight, but good, distance away from all the busyness of Lake George main street. Pool... More

Our family of 3 had a very pleasant 4 night stay at Fran Cove through the 4th of July holiday. We arrived late/early in the morning on a drive from Atlanta, but arrangements had been made with Linda to get us into our room with a very minimum of fuss. Room was very, very clean, and surprisingly quiet with the... More

We have been staying at the Francove for 5-6 years now during Americade week. Tim and Linda always go above and beyond to make our stay great. This year I mentioned to Tim that the a/c unit wasn't working but don't worry about it the projected weather for the rest of the week wasn't showing a need for it. When... More

We have stayed here a few times and it an excellent place. The service is exceptional and the owners go out of their way for you. It is nice as it is the last stop on the Trolley so getting into the village is easy.

We just drove to Lake George for the weekend. We had plans somewhere else on Sunday. Just wanted to get a headstart to the weekend. We made reservation when we arrived at 8pm. Room was decent and clean. Exactly what we needed for that one night. About 3 mins from village. Surrounding looked very nice. From our window there was... More

Very rude male owner, accused me of breaking a TV, they are free standing not secure and it was fine when I left, I'm sure it was the maid. Typical type owner for an off the lake type place. Stay on the Lake if your making the effort to enjoy Lake George.
