“Good value, OK motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2008

This hotel was clean and the price was very good. The only questionable thing was that even after confirming my reservation with them over the phone, when we got there they said their records said it had been cancelled. Lukily our room was still available, and they were nice about it. It's in a good location; you can walk to a small beach and to Lake George Village. We stayed in the two bedroom suite with the kitchen. There was plenty of space and the kitchen was very convenient and fully furnished to cook all of our meals. It doesn't offer kayaks, canoes or rowboats like most other Lake George motels so bring your own or find somewhere to rent them.

We had a lovely stay at the Balmoral. The owners were onsite a great deal and were really pleasant. The motel was accommodating of my friend's dog and the housekeeping was efficient and well done. We had one small issue with people in a room above us and the owner dealt with it. We would absolutely stay there again and in fact, we intend to.

We went to the Balmoral on the recommondation of friends.We were not disappointed.Right from the start when we called to make our reservation the person was very accomendating.We had never been in lake George before.We found that when we arrived the location was perfect.We were able to walk around easily and the motel was very clean. The room we had was SPACIOUS and EXTREMELYcomfotable. My husband said the bed was so comfortable (that was a plus) and the chamber maid was more than helpful that we will be returning. The pool area was relaxing .and well maintained.

We decided to travel to upstate NY for a vacation, and we are so happy we picked the Balmoral -Lake George Inn to stay we have 2 small children and are accomidations were great for the whole family! We stayed in a very spacious Suite, it was beautiful and clean and the staff was wonderful to us throughout our entire stay.
The location was great too, we walked to the village center and all the attraction. When we weren't enjoying the pool we walked over to the beach to play in the sand. We are planning to go back to the area in the near future and we will be staying at the Balmoral again.

We checked into the hotel and was greeted by someone on their first day. Well 2 hours later the room lost power. We had no power and the new girl did not know what to do! She kept asking what do you want me to do. Needless to say we had two small children who were hungry and we could not get the issue resolved. After two more hours we finally got in touch with the owner. It was late and our kids were hungry. The owner was very nasty and said he would check it out the next day. We decided to leave and asked for a refund. . He refused to give us back the money. We had a fight over the phone with him. He wouldn't even come to the hotel to fix the problem. The ownership refused to credit us even though we did not stay! I would never stay her or recommend this hotel to anybody.

I stayed at this hotel on the reccommendation of a friend this summer. I have to say that I was not disappointed. The location was right in the village so we could walk to any village activities and the price was right. The rooms are very clean and the staff was pleasant when we needed info on area activities. Claire, one ofthe owners I think, went out of her way to help us several times. We had a lot of fun in Lake George and would stay here again.

We took a group to the Balmoral (AKA) Lake George Inn, we booked 20 of their 30 rooms for 5 nights. I would not recommend this place and I won’t be back … There are too many other choices in Lake George.

There were a lot of communication problems with the hotel. They sent a letter to each of us about a month and a half before our arrival requesting a 50% deposit with in the next few days or our rooms would no longer be held for us.
They sent me the group organizer a letter requesting a 50% deposit for ALL the rooms booked. I didn’t pay it of course. And some in the group were called repeatedly by the hotel.

One person in the group reserved two rooms, but called and cancelled one of them. The hotel said they didn’t get a call and is charging them for the room for ALL 5 nights. They did remind the hotel on check in that they only needed one room. I could possibly understand a one night charge but not the whole stay. This is just a rip-off . The hotel was not willing to budge on this issue at all.

Most of the people in our group thought the management was very rude and unaccommodating.
The lobby didn’t open till 8 am most mornings, so we needed to walk to town to get coffee.

On our first night there, when we came back to our room the air conditioner had fallen out of its whole, there was no one in the office but a young girl and since the unit was still plugged in my husband was able to pull the unit up and back into its place but hurt his back doing so. The next day I got the felling from the owner that he thought we did something to cause the unit to fall.

Some in the group had house cleaning issues.

Like I said there are a lot of other choices in Lake George try one of them.

thelakegeorgeinn, manager at The Lake George Inn, responded to this review, August 2, 2007
This was a group of motorcyclists who booked 20 of our 33 rooms. Because of the number of rooms booked by one group, we have to confirm all guests are coming. Some guests had to be called several times, as we left messages with no response back. The last think a hotel desires are empty rooms when expecting full occupancy. Good communication is always the best policy in business. We are sorry this person had some issues but we wish them luck and hope they enjoyed our beautiful Lake George area.
Thank you.
