Reviewed July 5, 2014

This was the perfect place for our family to relax. The woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Its nice that you can park your car right in front of your door. The unit was bit smaller than average but clean. We loved that the playground was right next to beach for our 5 yr old to play, the beach itself was decent too. It has an arcade, bar, and a pool as well. We were just looking for a room in the area to spend time with family and hang around lake George and do some shopping and I found this place. Once we realized how nice it was we didn't want to leave the resort. We are already planning another weekend trip at scottys for later this summer.

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms are more updated

Past owners put no effort into this place, new management is what was needed, and am more than pleased with what they have done in this short amount of time. Im excited to see what they have to bring.

Was online looking for a hotel last minute for Americade and came across Scottys. Glad I did. It's been about 10 years since I was there last what a great surprise it was to see all the updated rooms and additions including beachside bar a snack bar. Met new owners and staff what a wonderful group. Best thing was waking up walking over to snack bar to get breakfast and sitting by the lake with its awesome view. This is now my favorite hotel in the village and hope to be back sometime this summer. I highly recommend to all to try it out!

Room Tip: Quieter down by lake

Our first time to Lake George area with kids. Scotty's was a dream come true after a long drive with 3 kids - ages 12,9 & 1. Our room was literally steps from the water (totally worth the small charge to be in a lake view room). Check in took less then two minutes, staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. We drove right up to our door - a super plus when you have half your house with you for a baby. Our room was spacious with a mini fridge and was immaculate and housekeeping kept it that way or entire stay. We loved there was a swing set for the baby and our older two boys enjoyed the arcade and volleyball net right by the pool. The pool was very clean and the perfect temp. Our older boys rented a kayak for a very reasonable price and had a blast paddling out on the lake and swimming from the dock. The hotel is close enough to town to walk to shopping and restaurants and about a 30 min drive to Fort Ticonderoga (a worthwhile side trip). Our kids favorite part of every morning was feeding Cheerios to the family of ducks right from our front steps. Hotel is under new management and they were in the process of making improvements and told us of their plans for the future. We will definitely be back and can't wait to see what they accomplish!

I've been coming to this resort for the last 5 years with my wife's family. They have been coming for the last 15 years. I gave that last owners a good review as well because of the location and the freedom you have on the grounds. Plenty of open space to bbq with great views. They also did some room upgrades which is a plus. But honestly no one comes to lake george to stay inside that does not really matter. Everyone there is nice and that's all you need.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the newly renovated Scotty's for a short getaway this past weekend and wow were we impressed!

-The beach is incredible with wide open views of the lake and surrounding mountains. You really can't beat this view! The beach was sandy bottomed and meticulously maintained (we noticed employees raking it on a daily basis). Comfy, new beach chair recliners were never in shortage and there was always plenty of space.

-The pool area was very clean and has wonderful sitting areas to enjoy the view of the lake.

-There is a beachside bar which offered beer/liquor and 'pub-grub' type food, which looked good though we didn't get to try it because we ended up taking the easy walk into the village for our meals, another huge plus! This place is a great balance between "being in the village" and not feeling overcrowded or noisy.

-The beds were super comfortable! Not to mention the rooms were spotless (and more importantly, smell-less), and clearly renovated with brand new furniture.

-Very friendly new ownership and front desk staff

Everything about this place was superb. We would recommend to any of our friends or family!
