In Old Forge, I have never been disappointed when staying at the Blue Spruce Motel. The owner is friendly, rooms are clean, and they have a pool. Not upscale, expensive lodging, but a comfortable, clean place to stay at a very reasonable price.

I like the management at Blue Spruce Motel, they make you feel at home. We stayed for a few days to hike the Adirondacks during peak season, having no issue getting a room 2 weeks ahead of time. The rooms are tidy and the wi-fi was a plus. We will come back, again.

We stayed here out of necessity after our other plans fell through - I am actually glad our other plans failed! The staff was so friendly, the location wonderful and most important the room was SPOTLESS. We walked to dinner and slept great. We will be returning this summer.

...off season. We love this place, that said if you are looking for amenities (it does have wifi), this is not the place. It is exceptionally clean and the owner is very friendly. The place is a bit dated, but for us it's great! An easy walk into the village, restaurants, the waterfront, kayak launch and walking paths. It's also... More

Had we been charged $100 I would have been satisfied. In no way does the room we stayed in warrant a $145 price tag. (Outdated and the very definition of no frills). On positive, room was clean( though remnants of smoking lingered) and staff friendly. Have been vacationing in ADK for last 45 years and like to support local businesses... More

So sorry to hear your trip was not up to your expectations. I personally went into your room prior to your stay to turn up the heat and make sure the extra towels were in the for your extra guests. . We do charge an extra $10 per extra person over the age of 12 for more than 2 adults... More

The Blue Spruce is perfect for staying in Old Forge. It is Very Clean, Very Comfortable and the owner Dianne is very friendly. At the wedding we attended people complained about dirty rooms at the places they were staying. Not our room, it was immaculate. My husband is in the hotel/restaurant/hospitality business and we rate this Motel 5 stars. Very... More

Though absolutely no frills, this modest hotel provides an easy walk to downtown, clean, large rooms with a mini fridge and a wonderful outdoor seating area and pool. The owner is very helpful and accommodating and there is the option of a well functioning AC or open windows. Though close to the main road, the traffic is not too bothersome,... More

This motel may be older but it's very clean and all employees are very accommodating. If you snowmobile they are located right on one of the trails just a few very short yards from your door and there is room to park your snowmobile trailer. The rooms are nonsmoking so they don't stink. People that do smoke, smoke outside. Everyone... More
