“Sundowner Motel A Superior Experience”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

As we continue to return to The Sundowner Motel year after year, the Rougeau family ensures that our stay is comfortable. The entire staff ensures the rooms are spotless, the pool is crystal clear and that we are happy vacationers. Regardless of how busy, they always make time for a friendly chat. The view is awesome and we are just far enough away from the strip to walk and never hear the downtown noise. Thanks for always making our stay special.

Jim & Sheri

Room Tip: The lake view rooms are always great! We always book a room with a private balcony.

Stayed at the sundowner in August 2012. This was our third trip to Lake George, but our first stay at the Sundowner. Our room was clean and the service very good. Like most motels along Canada street, it is a long and slender property with a small beach on the lake, which still beats not having direct access to the shore. The access to the village is excellent, with nearly everything walkable. The hosts are friendly, and they have free use of kayaks, sometimes tough to get with high demand on a very nice day. Nice swimming pool, with a kiddie pool also. It's really a very nice place, which I will happily stay at again, since it has such great value.

While I would not go so far to call this a complaint, but a suggestion coffee at 7 AM instead of 8 would be great.

We were looking for an overnight getaway in Lake George. Something clean, comfortable, reasonable and family friendly. The Sundowner Motel was the ticket. It was our first time here and we would definitely return. Our room was nice, bathroom immaculate, and the staff friendly. We went to the pool first. Being 6' tall myself, it was great to swim in a pool that was 8' at the deep end. Then we decided to visit their lake access beach area. It was well maintained with comfortable chairs and tables and BBQ facilities. The 2 hour complimentary kyak rentals were awesome! My son and I went way out into the lake and watched the Mini HaHa go past while his brother made sandcastles and dad caught some zzz's. The free morning coffee hit the spot and their location is within walking distance to the many businesses on Main Street.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room. It seems that all the ground floor rooms and right on the parking lots...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of July, 2012. The property looks like an older - but very well maintained - motel. You are just far enough from the middle of Lake George Village to avoid most of the noise. But, the motel has free parking, so you can leave your car in the lot, and still walk into the center of the village, in less than ten minutes.

The hotel has a pool and a heated jacuzzi. And you have a beach on beautiful Lake George - the queen of American lakes. There is no resaurant on the premises, but there is free coffee and tea in the lobby every morning. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance.

The bed is very comfortable.We had a king sized bed. The A/C unit is an old fashioned wall mounted unit, and it is a bit noisy. But, it does have a thermostat, and will usually not run all night long, unless it is very hot. We slept well. I hope to return, as Lake George is so beautiful.

Room Tip: You will pay more for a room next to the pool or next to the beach.

Great if you have kids! What a shock when I went to the pool and it was over run with kids and the parents were saving chairs. The parking was ok if you had a small car but was not good for a full size pick-up. Coffee was free if you hiked uphill to the office which was about 100 yards away from the room. Forget about the beach. There is a dock that you're not allowed on and boats tied off on each side of the dock. So the beach is very small. Yes it was affordable but it was not what I was looking for as far as rest and relaxation. I will not be back!

Room Tip: There is a large difference between lake view rooms and lake front rooms. Lake view means if you go...
