Holiday Inn Resort Lake George
Ranked #3 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2007

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!

We booked our 3 night stay based on the reviews on this website. You all were spot on and did not disappoint (We booked our room on line through the Holiday Inn website and paid upfront with a credit card. We saved over $40 a night by doing this).
We had a room with a King bed with a pool view (aka LAKE VIEW). If you have kids get a first floor pool view - you're just a walk out the patio door to the pools (large and a kids pool) and jungle gym. The room was spacious with a patio outfitted with 2 comfy chairs and a small table. The room had a small dorm 'fridge and a microwave. Now, with my really bad back I rate a hotel by the comfort of the beds. This hotel, by far, has the most comfortable beds I've ever encountered in a hotel... EVER! I even made a comment at the Front Desk. This hotel just recently updated all of the beds to Sealy pillowtops. You'll love it. We slept soundly every night.
The only downside, and it was slight, was the bathroom was quite small, but there was room enough to do what one needs to do in the bathroom.
We also visited the indoor pool and hot tub. We had the whole place to ourselves one night for over 2 hours. The pool is a nice 83 degrees and the hot tub is outside, adjacent to the indoor pool. In the indoor pool area there is also a pool table and shuffle board area. And right outside the door to the indoor pool are video games and a small gym.
We did not visit the hotel lounge, but it seemed like a popular place. We did eat at the hotel restaurant for one dinner. We were a bit leary and even more so when the salad arrived (more like Lettuce Soup), but the entree was quite good. Braised Pork Chop for me (melt in your mouth!) and Surf 'n Turf for hubby, which he raved about. The price was average to most restaurants in the area.
Just a note about the Lake George area. Don't visit midweek after Labor Day. Not much is open, but we still had fun (lake cruise, visit to Fort Ticonderoga - 40 min. drive, lakeside bars and arcades - who said an adult can't have run at an arcade!). But a note for parents - no matter how much they beg, do not take your kids to the Frankenstein Wax Museum on the main strip. We did it on a whim, but a few of the 'exhibits' were broken and although it was touted as 'scary', it wasn't. It was just dark.
For restaurants, try Simple Simon's on the lake. They make a great burger and have great views. For dinner, if you don't mind spending a bit more money, try the Log Jam. It was sooooo good, the portions are huge if you're really hungry and the waitstaff was super friendly and attentive.
Enjoy your trip to the area. We'll go back and stay at the Holiday Inn again.

We had never been to Lake George until now and we are so thrilled with the Holiday Inn Turf Lake George. It rained for the 3 days we were there but it didn't bother us because there is a beautiful indoor pool at this hotel.. We had our 1, 3, & 9 year olds with us and we never go out to restaurants for obvious reasons but let me tell you, the waitresses at the Holiday Inn restaurant were so accomadating. They were there for every child need without being asked.. Children eat free and we had dinner and breakfast buffets everyday and they were outrageous.. Usually kids eat free means a plate of chicken fingers but this meant kids eat free from the buffet, which is great for picky kids who eat different things. We loved the prime rib among other foods and our bill
was $40 for a family of 5...
The outdoor pool, jacuzzi, and playground were also so convenient and nice..
We had the pool view which was spectacular since you see the
mountains and lake.. There is so much to do in Lake George and we can't wait until next summer.
This is the first review I've done so I hope it helps...Enjoy..

My family just returned from a trip to Lake George New York. We had such a great time. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Turf and it was the perfect place to stay. The location was great, close to all attractions. It had a wonderful outdoor and indoor pool with a great whirlpool. We had the breakfast deal and it was a nice buffet with everything from eggs to made to order waffles. The rooms were very spacious with very comfortable beds. We had a pool/lake view. The activities in the area are many including horseback riding, rodeos, paintball, beach activities, sightseeing boats on Lake George, shopping (both malls and outlets), and some great restaurants such as Guiseppe's and the Look Out Cafe. The only negative I can say is the polenesian show at the Howard Johnson Hotel. That was a big waste of money. We also went to Great Escape(an amusement park) and found it not to our lioking as we wanted to do the water park but the water is freezing.
Overall we had a great trip and I want to plan a return next summer.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and we enjoyed it. Indoor pool helped alot to keep 3 kids busy on a rainy day. I got a room with breakfast included and thought it was a good deal and kids ate free which made it easy. Staff very nice, would not hesitate to reccommend highly as my the previous reviewers had

We have returned from our trip to Lake George. I picked holiday inn from the reviews on this site and I was happy with my choice. My family - the four of us shared a 2 queen room over looking the pool and lake george on the second floor. There are two pools on the property which my kids loved. Although we were not on the lake, we were a short car ride to the lake and the town. The hotel was quiet at night and the room was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel.
