This is our second time staying at this hotel within three years. We are not a big fan of the moderate-to-budget hotel chains, but this Holiday Inn exceeds our expectations. We are a family of four that likes to get away in the winter within a four hour drive from home, to a hotel that has an indoor pool. Holiday Inn Lake George Turf has a very nice indoor pool and also has a year-round outdoor hot tub that actaully allows kids to enjoy! It was great to sit near the piles of snow, two-feet-high, at night and watch the Lake's winter festival fireworks in a steamy tub with the kids. The inside pool has a small turtle mosaic on its floor. Most kids think it is cool, but some kids (like when mine was a toddler) find it a little creepy.
If you don't have kids and are looking for a romantic weekend get-away in the Adirondacks, you may want to avoid this place. At Holiday Inn, kids eat free and there were plenty of them at the breakfast and dinner buffets. Of course they were all well-behaved and WELL-FED! We were there President's weekend and often had to wait awhile for a table even though we made a reservation as soon as we checked in. There is a dinner theater here that we did not attend. I'm sure you need to make reservations for that when you call to book a room.
The rooms overall, are on the small side and the bathrooms are tiny. However, housekeeping does a great job keeping them spotless and all rooms are tastefully decorated. The hotel is adding another floor of rooms and they do warn that on weekdays there could be some construction noise. If you plan on visiting in the summer, you will want to request a room that has a patio or balcony near the outdoor pool. We booked late and all we could get was an inside room that had a king bed with a pull-out couch.
I was most impressed by all the staff members. Management must be doing something right because I recognized some faces from our visit three years prior. Everyone greeted us with a smile and all our requests were taken care off. Check-in and check-out at the front desk was a breeze too. The restaurant staff was extremely pleasant and the hostess went out of her way to apologize to us for having to wait 15 minutes one night.
This hotel is a safe bet for a more than satisfactory family get-away. We'll be back!
