My husband and I were trying to find someplace special to take the kids without it being expensive. I thought about the Great Escape Hotel in Lake George but that was too expensive. My husband suggested just finding a place with an indoor swimming pool - just to give the kids a night away. So we looked on-line and found the Comfort Suites Hotel. We decided to check out the hotel, so my husband called to make we could still get a room. He spoke with Patty on the telephone. She was very friendly - she told us they still had rooms available. My husband told her we would see her in a few hours. When we arrived a few hours later, we told her that we would like a room and she asked if we were the ones she spoke to earlier. We said yes. It is a breathtaking lobby with a beautiful chandelier and a grand staircase. (I thought to myself it would make a great place for a wedding).
Here is what we found:
ROOM: The room was very spacious room and it was tastefully decorated. It had a "homey" feel to it. It had 2 Queen size beds, which were very comfortable - best we've ever had in a hotel. The beds had down comforters and 4 pillows per bed - not the usual 2. There was also sleeper sofa - the bedding for it was conveniently located in the closet - no need to call housekeeping for it like most other places. It had a microwave oven and a good size refrigerator in the room as well. The room had a 32" flat screen HD TV. The room was spotless - no dust any where. There was a closet in the room that also housed the flat iron, ironing board and the safe. The room was very quiet.
BATHROOM: The bathroom was very clean and spacious. The coffee maker was located on the bathroom sink. Everything was so neat and tidy.
BREAKFAST AREA: The breakfast room was large and comfortable. There was also a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. The food was fabulous. Our son really loved the idea of the make your own Belgian waffle station. He is a very picky eater and he loved it. It was the first time seeing that in a hotel - great idea!!! The food was hot - scrambled eggs and sausage. They also had pastries, english muffins, bread (for toast), yogurt, fruit and cereal. They had coffee, hot water, milk and juice. Great breakfast spread!
POOL AREA: It was indoors. The murals on the wall were great - they depicted the Lake George area! The pool was fabulous. It had a 50 foot slide with the water depth of about 4 feet. It was awesome. We loved it. Our 10 year old and 11 year old thought it was great because they didn't have to wait in line to get on it. They would go down the slide and swim around to the other side and race to see who could reach the 5 foot end of the pool. The slide was somewhat seperated from the other area of the pool - so if you weren't using the slide you could swim in the other section. The depth ranged from 3 feet to 5 feet. There was a kiddie pool with a small mushroom water sprayer. The depth ranged from about 7 inches to 1 foot. Our 3 year old loved this area. There was also a hottub/jacuzzi there as well. This area was pretty clean as well.
GAME ROOM AREA: The kids liked this area too. It had many arcade games plus an air hockey table and a pool table - which delighted our son- he got to play his first game of pool here. Even this room was very clean.
FITNESS ROOM: We didn't really have time to check this room out but we plan to the next time we visit! And it is open 24 hours - how often does that happen?
PLAYGROUND AREA: We forgot all about this area until it was time to go. We drove by it on the way out. It has a basketball court area and a play area with swings, a few slides, rope climbing etc. We will definitely check it out the next time - especially with a 3 year old who loves to be outside.
We also noticed that there was a BBQ area with picnic tables - something to think about when it is nicer outside. We noticed that there was a Meeting Room area and a Guest Laundry area. We also liked the fact that the hotel was 100% smoke free. It was nice!
The staff were extremely friendly and very family oriented. Michael Stark - one of the owners was there during our stay - he was very friendly and accomodating. My husband spent sometime talking and joking with him. Every single person we met during our stay was very friendly.
Would we stay there again? Absolutely. The price was reasonable. The place was immaculate! I don't think we've ever stayed in a cleaner hotel! They are definitely "Family Friendly"! We truly enjoyed our stay and play to go again real soon - maybe even this coming weekend.
