After reading the reviews I was very apprehensive. We had 3 rooms and went with 9 friends. We had a WONDERFUL time. The grounds were beautiful and the staff was incredibly accomodating.Granted it wasn't a luxury room however our room was clean, the AC was fine and it had cable. We spoke to many other satisfied guests who told me they had been coming for years.
Will look forward to returning next year.

We had a large family gathering at the Thunderbird every year for about 6 or 7 years. It got worse every year and finally we moved on to another place. We loved the owners but the problem is they live in California during the off season so nothing is ever done to maintain or improve the place. The last straw was when I laid down on my bed shortly after arriving for our stay and got soaked by urine that had been left behind on the bed by the previous renters child. The housekeepers simply put a clean sheet over the wet mattress and of course it soaked through. There are countless other stories over the years of air conditioning that did not work or was so dirty that air could not get into the cooling coils, refrigerators that did not work, ants and spider webs way up in the corners of the ceilings. They simply want to open up the place and collect the money without having to do much else. We are now enjoying ourselves at The Boulders where we found a permanent place for our annual vacation.

Despite reading some pretty awful reviews of Thunderbird Resort and Marina we decided to take a chance and stay here due to the fact that the outside appearance seems very pretty. Once we arrived we saw why people had taken the time to write the awful reviews. The room was in much need of updating. Carpet was dirty, bathroom was old and moldy and desperately needed updating. The air conditioner in the family suite was weak and way too small to effectively cool down the entire unit. There was no phone giving the guests no way to contact the office (except by your own cell phone), the TV had poor reception. When seeing this we were not happy but figured since it was a busy weekend and we already paid for the room and settled in, we'd make the best of it. The following morning we awoke to another problem! The entire kitchen area was infested with hundreds of ants. They were everywhere, even crawling in the clean sippy cups that we had placed on the kitchen counter for our two year old. Upon complaining we were told to wait for the maid which wouldn't be for another couple of hours. We decided to abruptly pack up and get out. The room rate was way too expensive to be dealing with problems of this sort. Always read the reviews about an establishment before staying there and if there are more negative ones than positive, then it must be for a reason. We do not advise you to stay here.

My family and I usually rent 2 private homes on the lake each summer but the houses we rent we're sold. Because we love Lake George we figured we would try to find a place that was reasonable and could accomodate four families. BIG MISTAKE!! We found this place online and our first clue should have been the price, although it was by no means inexpensive. We payed 1250-1500/wk for each family. When we first got there we thought the resort itself was pretty decent with a new pool and very nice lake area. However, there is not much housekeeping or maintenance help although the one young man who is there seems to do EVERYTHING. He was very pleasant and accomodating and an extrememly hard worker. When we first checked out our "house", we we're shocked, I cannot even describe how awful and dirty it was. When we complained, the owner did move us to another house which was just as bad. We figured we would make the best of it and just deal with it until we found mouse droppings in EVERY unit we had (4!!!), there was actually a mouse in the apartment my parents were staying. When we complained we were told it was the country and we have to expect that --I don't think so!!! We tried to find another resort or motel, anywhere else to stay but we couldn't find a thing and because there were so many of us with kids we did not wan't to disappoint them by going home so we stuck it out and made the best of it. To put it the best, it was actually like camping without a tent and we would have been better off at the campground down the road.
