This is the Holiday Inn that will completely convert you. I agree, the Holiday Inn Resort in Lake George, New York is the best place to stay, as they seems to have a little of everything. So clean and striving to make their guests comfortable.
Last year, our first stay at this location, made me a convert, despite not having a lake view room. The amenities are outstanding, mini-golf, shuffleboard, larger chess set, playground, and baby pool all visible from your seat by the main pool. The basketball court as well if you are on the deck by the pool. This year, they added more seating and a few more tables around the pool. From 2pm on, they have activities for the kids. A welcoming reception in the afternoon 2x/week, with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and drinks, is just another way they separate themselves. A light rum punch and cookies in the afternoon for those who choose to indulge. Amazing they could fit so much for their guests here, but that's not all.
The indoor pool is just past the children's activity room, which is next to the game 'room' hallway and gym. Sauna to the right of the decorative and calming waterfall, and the outdoor hot tub. If your little one wants to put in 9 holes of golf, there is a mini course right there.
There is a dinner theatre, which looks great, but have not participated yet, $60 for theatre and meal, seems like a bargain. A cool bar with cool drinks; and the restaurant has been redone, the food and service is enough to make you remain on premise so you never have to leave if you so choose. sometimes a complimentary beverage with dinner, and of course free kids menu with paying adults keeps the prices well in check. This year, we ventured off property for hibachi and Mario's, but still enjoyed the restaurant (TR) and had NY prime (excellent) and, for breakfast, the 'Mickey Mouse' pancakes, and breakfast buffet ($5 for kids, seriously great deal) in the am.
Of course you can't forget the fire pit, great for hanging out late in the evening.
The staff seems quite happy. Tommy and Jacob who helped with our bags to and from our room, to the restaurant staff Jessica and Kris, to the manager Michael who always seems to be striving for an even better experience for his guests (can it get any better?). From the minute we arrived and checked into our room, the employees were friendly and welcoming.
This year, second floor balcony, with a great view of the fireworks over the lake, was amazing. The bathroom is on the small side, but ample bedroom space.
The resort rests on a hill, overlooking the lake, not on it, and a few minute walk to 'Around the World' mini-golf, ice cream, and Million Dollar Beach.
They have everything you would need for a perfect vacation.
It is the only place we will stay at when visiting lake George, and from familiar faces of other guests, I think they feel the same way.
