As a kid, my friends and I would backpack into the woods and camp for the weekend. The difference between tenting and the Forge Motel is at least the motel has indoor plumbing. To be honest, this was my second stay at the Forge, so I have no one to blame for this than myself. This is an old, outdated... More

We just returned from a quick overnight to the area. The Forge accepts dogs and is located right in the center of town. We had a double queen room. Our room had all new carpet, newer A/C unit and new queen beds. Bathroom clean and bright. The views of Old Forge Pond were wonderful. There was a concert on the... More

Every room has a lake view and is steps from downtown Old Forge and beach. Love the rustic style of the great room:lobby with indoor pool and Patio again overlooking lake. Rooms decent with glass patio door with lake view and a small patio area with Airondack chairs.

My family have always wanted to go to the waterpark in Old Forge, NY, so we decided to do it and bring the dog! The Forge Motel was the only one who would take dogs, and it was worth it! But note, it's a dated motel. But for the price, do it! We had a room with a great view... More

We love this Motel. Rooms are large and clean. Breakfast is perfect. Location is the best. You park your car and never really need it again until you leave. Walk to everything...Water park, restaurants, movies, evening cocktails, the lake. This was the most relaxed vacation I have ever taken. You can sit out on your patio and watch your children...

Recently stayed at the Forge Motel, was pleasantly surprised with the view and location, just a short walk to the shops and eateries in town. Check-in was quick and lobby was very nice, overlooking the heated indoor pool. Beds were very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake just outside our patio door. Very good value for... More

Stopped on a whim in '67 w/ an infant requesting an end room should the baby fuss during the night and worse case, possibly disturb one other guest room. Didn't happen, but what we've expierenced since is hard to put into words. This is like a family; The owners / operators serve a "crew" of us that spend over 1/2... More

We had a clean room, comfortable beds, plenty of outlets for electronics. There were Adirondack chairs outside of our room to enjoy the view & relax. The continental breakfast was nice with a good selection. Our kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Yes the motel part is dated but for us it added to the charm. We would definitely stay at... More
