We just stayed this past week...3 nights. The reason I chose this place was the cheap rate and the good reviews on trip advisor... I can honestly say that i was advised incorrectly... I don't mind outdated and ugly.. but it was dirty... I had to clean the bathroom myself. Thank goodness i brought the Lysol wipes.. dirty toilet seat... More

We stayed here for a night on a road trip through the area. It is off away from the hectic downtown area on the highway north of the main part of town. It is a small family run facility with mid-century style rooms. It is very clean, comfortable, and quiet. No frills but a great value. I would definitely stay... More

My wife and I stayed here over the summer for one full day/night. Or was definitely better than expected given the price. Price is probably the lowest you'll find in the area, but the accommodations were not. The room was clean and usual/typical hotel size. No problems with bathroom. Shower was nice after swimming in the pool which was also... More

For what you pay compared to other motels in Lake George, Gentleman Johnny's is a solid motel. I stayed over for a few nights with my wife and we were looking for someplace affordable and clean simply to spend the nights - JG's definitely fit the bill. Very glad I gave this place shot.

Have stayed in more expensive fancier motels in Lake George. Went online a few weeks before our trip and found this place at a really good rate. Had trepidations but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We brought our own towels as the last place I stayed in had really thin, small ones. Again, pleasantly surprised. The towels were clean... More

So, this isn't a princess at a pauper rate place. But it is a gem. The bed was good. The room was clean in general and the bathroom was clean in particular. It hasn't had a lot of money spent on keeping up with the joneses. But everything worked. The staff was smiling and particularly kind. The Gentleman blessed me... More

We stayed a couple of nights. Although clean, the place is old and dilapidated. The air conditioner did not blow cold air even at the highest setting. The refrigerator was unplugged and it never got cold enough to chill 6 cans of soda. The soda machine took my money, didn't give soda or refund my money. The front desk did... More

Gentleman Johnny's has the rustic feel of Old Lake George. It is only 1 1/2 miles from Lake George Village, without the high prices! Though the buildings are of older construction, it was clean and well kept, and very comfortable! The breakfast provided was very simple; bagels or toast with cheese and coffee, but suited me I didn't have opportunity... More

Booked this place for a last minute event. It was clean and served the purpose because we didn't spend much time in the room but the bed was comfortable and the we were the only people at the place. It needs to be updated and appears "tired" but with a little love and some investment into the property could be... More
