“Sleep in your car”
Reviewed August 26, 2007

Mildew, dirty, smelly. Avoid this motel at all costs. Stayed with my 2 kids and really regretted that we just did not check out immediately. Luckily only stayed 1 night.

We will never go back to the Villager Motor Inn in Lake George NY again and do NOT recommend anyone to stay there.
Arrived at 6pm, checked in and went out to eat, when we got back around 10pm and we started to unpack.
What we found in the room was totally disgusting, in an open shelf, under the TV was a dirty pair of woman’s underwear and a soiled pair of young boys swim trunks. If this place was cleaned properly it was sure to have been found.
Immediately called the front office to complain about this, and when the manager came to retrieve the clothing, he placed them into bag and was just going to leave, no acknowledgement of being sorry what-so-ever. We also told him that the room was very musty and damp, and was there another room that we could have. All he said was, “no, all the rooms like this are the same and if we didn’t like it we could check out in the morning”.
I’ve never been treated like this in any motel or hotel before, and should not be treated like this at the price we paid, ($129.00 night, 2 room family room)
We booked this place because it was locally owned, as of 4 months ago it is not American owned.
The pillows were flat, the locks were loose and ready to fall apart, the outside was overgrown, the hospitality was none. It looks like the owners are taking the money in and not putting anything back into the property for improvements and repairs.
Sunday morning around 9am the maid service was going around knocking on doors to see if people were ready to have their room cleaned; this was probably because there were no “do not disturb” door knob tags to place outside the door. I heard one person say “NO, were not ready, we were still sleeping”. If check out time is 11am, then we have till 10:45 to check out. There is no excuse for this type of behavior and no reason to bother guests at that hour.
If you need to stay in a Lake George NY motel, please do not stay there, you’ll be very disappointed.
