“would stay again if in the area, was a great location for families with teens”
Reviewed July 24, 2006

the night before we left I read all the reviews and got a bit nervous (the bad few were really bad) but then I realized that ownership had changed and they must have done upgrading. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable by any motel standard. All the fabrics including the carpet were new. All of my interaction with the staff went well, even doing a reservation change at the last minute the night before. The motel is located at the beginning of the main strip so our teenagers were able to walk to the arcade and stores which was a wonderful plus in my opinion. They are located at a main intersection so there is a lot of traffic but the bonuses for us more than made up for the traffic noise. The kids, who's room was facing the quieter side said they didn't even hear the traffic noise, we were right at the point closest to the pool which was another plus. I would definitely stay again and request the same adjoining rooms.

  • Liked — location and comfortable rooms
  • Disliked — traffic noise
  • Tips/Secrets — know what your wants are, from what I saw overall of the area it is a motel, cabin, camping area. There may be other types of accomadations available but not from what I saw

I stayed at the Balmoral Motel over the Fourth of July weekend and everything was awesome. I had stayed there before and noticed new carpets in the motel rooms and new furniture. The rooms looked like something out of a top-notch hotel. The service was also friendly and accommodating. The motel is a class above the rest... Will definitely stay there every time we visit Lake George.

We stayed at the Balmoral during the summer season and everything was great. They are located right in the village steps from Lake George and walkable to anything in the village. The owners were very accomendating to our needs during our stay and the kids loved the heated pool. We would stay there again.

I booked this place because we were going to be traveling with our dog, but in the end we didn't and i was unable to book anything else.

when we arrived at around 10 p.m. -- after 11 hours on the road -- the air conditioning in our room was broken and bugs were on the bedspread, so they moved us into an apartment. we had to move out again the next morning.

the place is run down, the carpet on the walkways outside the unit doors is nasty -- moldy, stinky and filthy. when we were checking out i was looking under the beds for lost stuff and saw a debris field of previous tenants' food. yuchh.

it was at the intersection of two major roads and the noise level was horrible if you wanted to sit outside and relax.

i would never, ever stay there again unless I absolutely had to because of the dog. the balmoral hotel is a rathole desperately in need of a makeover from the Fab Five.

My husband and two small children stayed at The Balmoral Motel About 3 years ago. We are planning a trip to Lake Geoge again,and remembered the Motel it was of average quality, good price , and in a wonderful location. Although the rooms smelled a bit of stale smoke, We enjoyed our stay and plan to use this motel again.

Stayed last year and found new owners have taken over. The motel is in great shape with remodels abound. We enjoyed our stay with courteous and attentive staff, the pool is awesome and location is accesible to all points of Lake George.
