Best Western of Lake George
Ranked #17 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed February 18, 2006

I just came back from a 2-night stay at the LG Best Western. The purpose of my visit was a 3-day power-outage in my hometown. Much of LG was out of power as well when we arrived, but the Best Western was not. Desk staff was very helpful with giving us menus/phone numbers of restaurants that were open & delivering to the hotel. That was VERY helpful. They were also keeping informed of updates on the power-outages in the Lake George area, and readily sharing that information when asked. They also were very helpful with local directions. Our room was standard, simple, but very clean. The next night we were moved to a suite and they graciously gave us a discount due to our predicament (power outage, changing rooms). The suite was very nice, also very clean. They cleaned the indoor pool both mornings, and continuously refreshed the supply of "pool towels" throughout the day. The free continental breakfast had a nice assortment of muffins, danish, and donuts, and some fruit. The complimentary coffee, tea, cocoa, and juice was available ALL DAY, which was VERY much appreciated. The hotel was full to capacity while we were there, including many families with children, a boy scout troop, and a few guests with quad-runners parked outside. So there was a little noise but not unbearable. The staff was friendly, helpful, and competent. The check-in/out went seamlessly. All in all a very nice, clean, friendly, affordable place. My family and I were pleased with our stay.

After reading some very negative reviews of this hotel here, I was a little nervous about staying there for the weekend. However someone else in our party chose the place so we went. We paid $59 per night and the hotel was fine. Although it clearly has not been refurbished for awhile, the room and bathroom were clean, there were no visible stains and the linens were clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We met two other couples there and spent a great deal of time in the lobby playing games or visiting. The desk person even helped us find some info we needed for a game. I would recommend this hotel for an inexpensive stay.

The hotel was dirty. We had sheets with stains. The bed sagged. A white line of dust along the walls on the carpets and trim (see photo). Our phone message light flashed, yet we could not pick up messages. A very long walk from the village. Summer mid-week rates of $150 per night should have gotten us a much nicer place. Not recommended.

Cowbeads on the corners. Bring your own lighbulbs if you don't want to feel like you are in a dungeon. Don't bother with their complimentary breakfast. Find another place.

The photo's of this hotel are deceiving. The pool is in the parking lot. The rooms are dark. The "gameroom" consists of a couple of outdated games between two sets of doors entering one of the buildings. Located on a busy exit ramp of a major highway.
Stayed here with 3 children. Would not stay here again.

We stayed at the Lake George Best Western from September 8 - 11, 2005. We booked a room with two double beds before I read any of these reviews. I was so nervous. We were not just staying for one day but for four. Plus, we have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. Smelly and dirty was not what I wanted. And I am very particular. Well, the room was exactly what we had reserved. And, best of all, it was very clean and did not have any bad smell in it or in the hall. It was not a "luxury" hotel but at $99 a night, you can't expect that. We were very comfortable, happy, and satisfied. We even used the indoor pool on one of the days. Another bonus for us, was that we went for the Adirondack Nationals and the hotel was close enough to the town to be convenient but far enough away that my children and I could get a good night's sleep. We will definitely stay there again.

We had booked the Best Western in Lake George, NY 7/21/05 before reading the reviews about it. We were fearful of what it was going to be like based on the reviews. However, our experience was not as bad as the reviews indicated. Could be that they improved and updated since the reviews, which were dated 2004. My only problem was the smell in the hallways. They just had new carpeting put in and it smelled of a combination of new carept and hot sweat. New carpeting in the room as well was quite strong. But better new carpet than old ratty carpet. Everything was clean, roomy (2 qn deluxe). Outdoor pool was big. Kids loved it and the indoor pool, although that was small. Would stay there again for $99/night, which was the mid-week special we paid...Thursday night and Friday night.
