Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This hotel, or better stated, resort, was a surprise. The hotel is situated up on a hill just on the outskirt of Lake George. The views were beautiful and a terrific family place with much for children and adults. Great onsite restaurant/bar with pool side service. We had a wonderful two nice stay and would love to come back.

Thank you for your note. We would love to have you join us again. Our location up on the hill provides a wonderful view of the lake. It definately catches people off guard who come for the first time.

the bar remodel, the dining room remodel, the never ending flow of free food for happy hour is just, wow what can i say! the outside fire pit, life size chess game, absolutely gorgeous swimming pool, view of the lake while sitting at the pool. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. I would recommend it to anybody and would feel very confident that they would not be disappointed.

Room Tip: lake view pool view

What a great experience! The staff in this hotel are fantastic. The bed in the king room was so comfortable we felt like we were home.The pool and firepit area were great. We also enjoyed seeing the fireworks over the lake while sitting around the fire. Thank you again to the staff for making our time here so enjoyable.

Thank you for your comments. Our firepit is awesome, and very popular all year. Our position on the hill make us a perfect spot to watch the fireworks. We hope to see you again.

The Holiday Inn seems to be one of the best of the hotels in Lake George. It's just outside the village (thankfully--what a crazy place that is), easy to find and to get in and out of. The hotel was very well run and has all kinds of activities, pools, etc. We didn't eat there or use the recreational facilities. Just the business center, which was fine. The bed was very comfy.

My only complaint was that our room was attached to another and I could hear the neighbors' complete conversations about Wal-Mart, where they're going to eat, their trip to Cooperstown, etc. Fortunately the family next door went to bed early and got up late.

That being said, it's still a really nice hotel and I'd certainly stay there again if I return to Lake George.

Room Tip: Perhaps don't stay in an adjoining room because they're noisy.

My husand and I stopped here for an overnight on our way from the Albany airport up to Lake Placid. Hotel was nice/clean and I can see that families would really love it here. The bed/mattress was unbelievably comfy. The bed/mattress at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid did not even compare. We decided to take a drive up to the Sagamore in Bolton Landing about 11 miles up the lake for drinks and dinner. I recommend you do this if you get a chance. The drive was lovely and the the historic hotel is really worth the trip.

First of all let me start by saying we travel a lot and have been to numerous resorts & hotels & B&B'S. When we booked this hotel we checked Trip Advisor and thought sounds great let's give it a shot!

First things first this hotel is not a resort just because they have nice grounds and an outdoor pool. To us a resort is on a beach and is an all inclusive.

The room we booked was 2 queens with lake view and pool view on the second floor. Pool view yes lake view no, you could only see the lake from the lobby. This hotel caters to lots of families with young children and we new this before booking but we did not expect the parents or the hotel to allow their children to run all over the hallways screaming and slamming doors all hours of the night! This went on for the 2 nights we were there up until midnight!

The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and well kept. The rooms could use some renovations and updating.The bathroom is small for the price we paid $269.00 + tax per night....no screens on any of the room patio doors from what we could see. The sink was all cracked in the bathroom and the light in the shower worked when it felt like it. The toilet paper felt like sandpaper and 1 ply! The lighting in the room felt like we were in an office.The beds were comfy but our daughter's bed had hair all under the pillows we were kinda grossed out! The internet barely works and is very very slow. We called the front desk to tell them it was not working and they gave us a 1 800 number to call and when we checked out we noticed on our bill that we were charged a fee for long distance for their internet problem. Obviously when we checked out we did not pay for this and they removed it.The carpeting was very dirty and lots of big stains, yuck!

The food....well the breakfast was not bad, very convinent not having to look for a restaurant in the morning. They were always trying to push the buffet instead of the menu....because it was much more expensive but very little choice for a buffet! We had lunch upon arrival and it was not bad but supper was terrible! We chose the buffet supper 1 night and it was $12.95 per head X 3 and very little choice. We had steak and it was the worst steak we ever had, it tasted like processed meat! 2 mouthfuls and we gave up, so we tried the other food in the buffet (not much choice) baked potato over cooked and brown inside from being reheated to many times and boneless chicken breasts soaking in just a regular BBQ store bought sauce, baked canned beans....very bland tasting food and we are not picky eaters we eat just about anywhere! The salad bar was a joke, lettuce, small shrimps, tomatoes, cucombers and olives and corn....this to us is not considered a buffet for $12.95 and dessert not much choice there either. All in all the food everyday tasted like cafeteria food or hospital food, tasteless.

We would not stay here again. Definately not worth that kinda money! We will definately go back to Lake George, it is very pretty with lots to see and do. Saratoga Springs is a must to visit, just a short drive from Lake George and very pretty and much less crowded than Lake George.Lot's of great shopping all over Lake George.
