The Lake Motel was recommended by Shannon, the best service provided in recommendation, location, on the Lake and everything is in walking distance. The owners Steve and Georgina are right there on site all the time as well and make it there mission, along with Shannon, to make sure that all is taken care of for their guests and friends. They all treat everyone like family (that would be, "like family" that they care about. I will continue to go there and recommend that place still to anyone who will traveling to or visiting the area and need a place to stay that is like home on the Lake at the Lake Motel.

Room Tip: Choose a good room on the Lake. Yes, you will see the Lake as this Motel sits right on Lake George...

Thanks for the kind compliments. The motel business is by no means easy, but it would be difficult to find a more rewarding vocation.

We have been coming here with our fire district for a few years now and the hospitality is outstanding. We love it there.....hated leaving and always coming close to stayone more night. Im already looking forward to coming up next year....and instead of coming just a day early...think we will do that and stay that additional night also.

What a great hotel. Went to Americade, i was worried about people jacking with my bike, the other guests were very friendly and even hosted a BBQ, in the pouring rain.
the rooms were modern and had nice amenities . The office girls were very friendly and went out of their to make sure my trip was a success.

Room Tip: if you don't care to hear road noise, stay closer to the lake

On a Saturday whim, we left for Lake George for the day. Once there, we fell in love with it and stopped by the Visitors Center, never imagining there could possibly be a room on the lake that was available. The Center called the Lake Motel and, yes, there was still one room available! It was fantastic ... the service was excellent, the room was clean and the beds were SO comfortable. We then planned on staying the one night ... but it led into two, as we were so happy to be there. We kayaked on the lake and enjoyed the pool, and took the suggestions from the staff as where to eat and places to go. That Sunday, even though the weather looked glum, we decided to stay, as we weren't quite ready to leave the Lake Motel and Lake George atmosphere. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating, Jorgina's constant smile is still etched in our minds. Steve is doing a great job with the motel, and we cannot wait to go back. Wouldn't stay anywhere else ! Kelly & Paul (The Berkshires, Massachusetts)

Thanks for the encouraging words. We are still relatively new at this business (5th year) but enjoy it more every year. Seeing satisfied guests like you is what drives us.

, My first year for the Americade I booked not knowing how the motel would be. I made a good choice I really liked the motel so I booked for the following year. I was able to book the same room, too. Came up again this year and booked for next year! The motel is very clean, has really comfortable beds, a small refrig , big tub, seems everything is new and is certainly clean. It has a terrific location, a place under the rooms for motorcycle parking,. There's a beautiful view of the lake, table & chairs outside your room, a big pool. What really makes it special though,, are the owners and their staff. You can see they really care about their guests. During the Americade, the owners have a nice barbeque for all the guests. (Don't know many places that do that!) The motel is well maintained . The guests I met the first year were so friendly and it was the same this year. The same people keep coming back, so you know for sure that it's a great place to stay. Looking forward to next year!. . Thanks again, Gail Malara - Dobbs Ferry, NY

The location of this motel is good, however be warned that the rooms are extremely small. The rooms are clean and the staff was friendly, but we booked a lake view room, and instead got a view of the parking lot. It was disappointing and although the stay was decent, I would much rather spend my money elsewhere where I can get an actual lakeview.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on your stay and your high marks for cleanliness and service. While room amenities are virtually identical, every room is slightly different, ranging in size from 160 square feet to over 300 square feet. We make available pictures of every room on the property online and encourage everyone to view them before making a choice.

Lake Motel provides a clean environment, cozy and very comfortable bed. We all slept well. The staff is very friendly and always so happy to be of service. The motel also provides a good view of the lake. It was also quiet at night.
