I really don't want to give this motel a bad review because it is family run and they are so nice! But I will be honest.... Okay so When we first got there it looks beautiful, the grounds are kept VERY nicely. We went in late September so the pool wasn't open but it looked like it was well kept also. I would also like to add that there are three grills and picnic tables, as well as a play ground and small basketball court, so in the summer there's tuns to do. But When we got into the room it was very small and everything is out of date. (like most motels) But it was cleaned very well, except the shower curtain had mold on it. The beds were very uncomfortable and the sheets really didn't feel clean. (But I know that they were changed). Over all our family really didn't feel very comfortable in this motel but it was worth what we paid. I am going to say that I will not recommend this motel to a friend because I think that its worth paying the extra money for something nicer, but if you are really on a strict budget and don't like camping this is the place to go!!

We decided to cheap out for this family vacation and spend the a night in a motel, as we would only be in Lake George for one night. Well, I wouldn't even say that we got what we paid for...even spending $80 on a motel you would expect something simple and clean. Not at Fran Cove. The room smelled musty and damp. There were several spiders in the shower; as well as, no water pressure. The TV remote was broken. Do not stay here!!!

I have stayed at the Fran Cove Motel multiple times throughout the years and have seen it go through many transitions. For the money, this is an absolutely wonderful bargain. It just out of the center of town, has lovely grounds and a good sized pool. There is a shuttle that goes downtown about every 20 minutes. My only complaint is that they need to update there towels and linens. The bath towels were thin and very small. The sheets were "well used" and would not stay on the mattress.
