“A Welcome Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

Just returned from our 4th stay at Colonel Williams Lake George Motel.
The grounds & pool area are picture perfect. Very well groomed.
The rooms are impeccable.....A Family owned business that treats you like family.
We stayed in a spacious suite with a private balcony.
We highly recommend this motel located midway between Lake George Village and the Outlets.
An easy drive to Saratoga Raceway. Can't ask for better.
The trolley stops right in front and will take you to the Village or the outlets for just $1.00.

I stayed July 2014 with my kids. The room was clean. We had an issue with no hot water one evening and the staff, consisting of the family, were all very attentive and solved our problem immediately. Lake George Village and Lake George are close by car. I will stay again.

We went for a weekend get away with our two boys ranging in age from 2-5. I booked it online, but got a email back that we couldn't stay in the room we booked bc we had children accompany us and if we did not change our room and showed up with our kids the would not honor the reservation.So I do caution you if booking online- check your reservation closely. ( They did say the room would be to small when I spoke with them on the phone) the landscaping is nice and it's a breakfast wagon served on the front porch of the place ( it was cute)It had fruit cups yogurt and English muffins , doughnuts and homemade bread. Oh and cereal in individual servings with coffee, tea and juice.
The playground was the best and our kids loved it, landscaping and up keep of the place is great overall. The room did smell a little. The pool hours are limited so we were bummed, but they are very nice both the inside and out.The inside hot tub was closed when we were there.Caution there are lots of rules to staying here so take into account your children's behavior when booking( are they quiet overall bc quiet hours are fairly early).Overall it was a good stay.
Overall it was a great stay.

We took our kids to this motel every summer when they were young. The property was beautifully landscaped and the rooms were always spotless. My daughter who is now 35 and has her own family, wanted to start the same tradition with our 14 month old Grandaughter this summer. When we looked on the web to book our vacation we found there were new larger hotels that have been built in Lake George since our last stay. Because my daughter had such fond memories of the fun she and her brothers had at Colonel Williams she wanted to come back to stay here again. We just returned from a 4 day weekend and were absolutely pleased with everything at the resort. What makes this hotel so special is that it has been owned by the same family for years and they are so particular about keeping their property impeccably clean & beautiful. When you first enter the hotel parking lot there is a huge water fountain which is nicely lite up at night. There are flowers, trees and lots of manicured grass surrounding the entire resort. The rooms are all ground level, three buildings with big porches in front that have lots of white wicker furniture so you can sit outside and enjoy some quite time at night when the kid's fall asleep! We stayed in two suites next door to each other. The rooms had a living room with large t.v., a kitchen area with microwave,sink,counter top, cabinets,dishes,silverware and a refrigerator. The bedroom had two queen beds,a large bureau, another t.v. and a sliding glass door that goes out to a deck with chairs. It is a very short walk from the deck to the outdoor pool area, which is beautiful. We could sit on the front porch and see the huge playground directly across from our rooms. Every morning I walked my grandaughter over to play. There are tree houses for the kids, a big wooden firetruck that they can climb the ladder to sit in, a merry go round, swings and much more! Every morning the owners open an old fashion breakfast cart that has two toasters, cereals, muffins, bread, coffee, milk and other items, all complimentary. We can't say enough about this establishment. If you plan to visit Lake George we highly recommend this hotel. It is located directly in the middle of all attractions and Six Flags is only a ten minute ride .If you have toddlers under three, there are not many rides for them to go on but Splash Kingdom in the park has a huge play area with lots of water activities Magic Forest is the park for toddlers ages 1-5 and this too is only a short drive from the hotel.

Room Tip: suite for family is best

My wife and I have been coming here for years. The place hasn't changed. It's clean and well maintained around the whole property. The pool is spotless and the breakfast cart is a nice start to your day. We will definitely return in the future.
