I've stayed at The Golden Gate several times and I'm never disappointed. The room is always clean and the staff is friendly. I recommend the second floor on the right hand side . View of the lake from the balcony :-) . In the summertime the beach is clean and pleasant for wading or a walk.

This is exactly what we were looking for - a mom & pop hotel. Joan the manager is a great host she was there to greet us and make us feel at home. I have traveled extensively and stayed at many 5 star hotels, but this place is unique. It is a total no frills place that does require some mitigation of expectations, yet if you are looking for atmosphere, a private beach and a good place to relax for a few days, you need to visit the Golden Gate.

44°42'55.52"N 73°26'42.38"W We went to Plattsburg to visit our son in law and his 35 foot Sailboat. Although the boat can sleep 4 easily (it has 2 cabins) we preferred the comfort and air conditioning of a Hotel room. We found just that at the Golden Gate. And to make things even better, all the rooms have a view of the lake. Be carefull, the motel reception closes at either 17:00 or 18:00. So get your key before hand if you plan on being a late arrival. The room we had, 71, is on the second floor. This is good because it means there are no children (or uncivil adults) above you to run and/or make noise. The air conditioning is a bit noisy but there is also a fan that is very quiet. The motel provides 2 comfortable chairs right outside the door for those who want to read while looking at the lake. On the side of the water is a sandy beach, private to the motel. The room we had was very comfortable, with a flat tv and plenty of storage space. The furniture appeared to be mahogany. It is very nice. Only a sad comment. The bath and sink should be resurfaced. Overall, a very nice room in a very nice location. We will return.

So much for supporting the little guy! Next time we stay in Plattsburgh we'll stay at a chain hotel. The front desk clerk had to come and vacuum and edge the whole room because the floor was filthy. The tub was grimy and had hair in it, as was the base of the toilet, with a wad of Kleenex thrown behind the toilet. The ceiling fan paddles looked like they were growing fur,the a/c unit was coated with dust, the window sills disgusting, and every surface was dusty, see pic of my hand,that came off ONE end stand. The freezer was not usable, caked with ice and the door broken off. The fridge shelves were sticky and gross. If we didn't have appointments the next day, we probably wouldn't have stayed at all. $100 a night? Wasn't worth $20
