My mom and I planned a two day trip to the Lake George and selected this hotel based on reviews from this site. The hotel is below average and unappealing on the outside. I know this is an "upstate" hotel and perhaps the theme is Adirondack style but the exterior of the building and the parking lots were rundown and old. The Hotel is located on a corner slightly outside of town. You could walk into the heart of Lake George but I think most people would prefer to drive as we did. The driveway entry and parking lot had many potholes and needs repaving. The landscaping was weedy and overgrown The entry doors were dirty and fingerprinted. We must also note that a back entry door is left unlocked at night and does NOT require a card to enter.We felt unsafe going to the vending area knowing that anybody could access the hallways.
The lobby while clean and tidy was small. The front desk clerk was inattentive. I had to ask twice for a downstairs room. The room was quite nice and clean. The towels were clean but dingy and were in need of an upgrade. The worst feature of the room was the bathroom. It was tiny! It was so small and cramped .The sink was located outside in the main bedroom area too. The bathroom was clean and neat but could use an upgrade. The hotel room door was very thin and we could hear people in the halls. We also could hear the people in the room above us. We did not use the hotel pools but they appeared clean. The outdoor pool is located in the parking lot area and I thought not very private... However many people were using it and looked to be having a great time! The hotel has weird feel to it... Has a lot of added on hallways or something.
The breakfast was OK. Coffee was good and they had scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, dry cereals,rolls,muffins,yogurt etc.The breakfast room was pretty large and clean with plenty of seating. The breakfast ladies were polite and efficient.
Overall we were not excited or pleased with this hotel. It was not horrible or truly bad but felt it was very average and boring.We saw many other hotels in town and I am sure we will stay at another property if we return to the Lake George area again.
