“On the Lake”
Reviewed June 29, 2011

Great motel located on the shores of Lake George. Located downtown and close to restaurants and shopping. Clean rooms on a tiered setting with great pool and hot tub with views of mountains and lake. Rooms have fridges and microwaves. Lots of parking. Did not use WiFi.

prices were good, hostesses could be more friendly. pool, beach and kayaks were good and available. been here several times and always enjoyed. stay away from room 102 (room from hell). still had a great time and will return some day.

Room Tip: rooms closer to the water are the quietest

My friend and I stayed at the Sundowner Motel for six nights. Everything about the room was great--except housekeeping.

The good: Large, comfortable room with refrigerator, relatively clean carpeting (don't you hate that sticky feeling?), gigantic bathroom with two sinks, newer bathroom fixtures. The lighting in the room was abundant (a pet peeve of mine). The view from our room couldn't be beat, and we had a large patio. The motel is located near the end of the downtown, with an easy walk to all the good restaurants. The owners are friendly and helpful, and if we needed anything it was handled right away.

The bad: I'm pretty sure the shelves in our bathroom had never been wiped down, and we actually wondered if the bathtub had ever been cleaned (even though the tub was green, we could see the dirt). There were candy wrappers under one of the side tables from previous guests. Our room was not vacuumed once while we were there. We had to ask for tissues and TP. While the towels were old and thin (someone with long hair might need three towels to get dry hair), they were adequate. The sheets were pilled but, again, adequate. My matress was on the verge of needing replacement because it felt like I was sleeping on a big "V" and kept rolling into the middle.

Overall, I would recommend this motel because the only real problem was the cleanliness (but it was a big one).

Just back from a fall getaway to the adirondacks area. After lots of time looking around on the internet chose this motel. The room while on the small side ( we stayed in a lakeside queen) was very clean and comfortable. The location was ideal, easy walk to town . I would recommend this motel and if we are back in Lake George will stay here again.

We stayed here for the third year in a row for the Balloon Festival. As always, the owners are very friendly and helpful, and the room was immaculate. A great place to stay for the money!

My wife and I ,along with 2 other couples, stay in Lake George every year for the car show for 3 nights. We have switched hotels/motels every year for several reasons, usually cleanliness,and then service. We were looking for a clean,inexpensive, newly remodeled place that we could stay at every year, with friendly staff/ownership. WE FOUND IT. The Sundowner is the best we've stayed at. We will be back every year. We are happy to recommend it to anyone.

What a wonderful place. Rooms are modest and clean.Safe, secure, and the grounds are meticulous. Owner occupied and are very friendly, as well as the rest of the staff.
