Reviewed July 23, 2011

Took the mid summer package, includes meals and attractions,well worth every penny.The suite overlooked the lake.Cant say enough good things. only negative thing was one of the resturants the tamarack did not meet expectations. other than that book your stay here and enjoy.

My wife an. There wasad two small children ages 4 and 3 months of age booked two other hotels and then cancelled them after reading reviews on trip advisor (Scotty's & Tahoe). We decided to spend a little extra and stay at the surfside (approx 165 a night). We pulled into the parking lot on Sunday and were very happy as the place appeared well cared for. Next, we opened our door of our room first floor room 614 or 615 and were very happy the room appeared and smelled clean. There was a flat screen tv mounted on the wall, small fridge, bathroom was small but sufficient and the beds were comfy which is a big deal for my wife who has a back condition. Next, my four year old and I ventured out to the pool and saw that the pool was crowded but was very big and inviting. Then we walked down to the lake and there was plenty of beach chairs to choose from and the lake was not as crowded. The grounds were immaculate, the maintaince crew were observed at all times of the day walking around handling things, the cleaning crew was very visible and they did a great job for us. The front desk woman was very outgoing and friendly and extremly helpful as she sold us discounted tickets to the Great Escape. We had an issue with the remote not working so we called the desk and seconds later a maintance crew member was knocking on the door and fixing the remote. I was very impressed with the hotel and we will definately be back. I thank trip Advisor for the review because I listened to them and ended up here and was extremely pleased as was my family.

We stayed here from July 17-21 and had a great experience! Our room was updated and nice and very clean! We were in the building behind the pool and the short walk to the pool/beach was so convenient. I have to agree with others that the only negative is the parking! It is VERY TIGHT and if people don't park the right way they can easily take 2 spaces up. Other than that the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We needed extra pillows and within minutes they were knocking on the door. We are going to make this our annual summer vacation and stay here. I would HIGHLY recommend this place. We have a 4 yr old and a 3 month old and they slept well. The beds were comfy and the AC worked great. The pool should be monitored because kids were diving off the sides and it clearly says NO DIVING. Parents should pay more attention to their kids there. The lake is very clean and the beach was nice, biggest one out of all the hotels on the lake. Can't wait to come back!!

Overall, The Surfside is very nice. It has plenty of areas with chairs and umbrella tables so you can sit by the pool or the beach. We've stayed here for the last few summers and there is one major problem and that is parking. The parking spaces are extrememly narrow and we had a really bad experience last summer with a guy just about taking off our side mirror as he backed out of a space. We are extremely cautious where we park there from now on. The other problem is that the pool area is totally unsupervised. We were at the pool one Sunday afternoon this month. There were 3 or 4 families each with several small children that were extremely rowdy and reckless. Not only did everyone at the pool have to listen to their loud boombox but they were having quite a beer party in the pool. Each of the men were drinking beer in the pool and new cans were being "thrown to them in the pool" about every 15 minutes. I timed it! Luckily, they checked out on Monday a.m. but guests were still talking about them two days later. My husband reported this to the desk but nothing was done. We will continue to stay there as the good points outweigh the bad.

Surfside is ideally located for the whole family. Polite and hard working staff keep the rooms as well as pool and beach area well maintained and clean every day. Owner present and personally ensures customer satisfaction. We loved Lake George and intend to make an annual visit to Surfside.

Surfside on the lake was a great place. All around great experience.. Clean room, friendly & helpful staff. Right on the cusp of the beautiful downtown area but without any noise. Dowtown was a 2 minute walk, wonderful restuarants to eat at.. VERY kid friendly and the lake itself is kept beautifully. The hotel has there own beach front which is kept clean, playground on sight also.. Lots of family fun activities, variety of amusement parks, mini golf, water parks etc at reasonable price. The hotel offers discounts rates to many of the places also.

rooms were basic motel standard. nothing to rave about. nice that it has its own beach although very tiny and a nice big communal patio that you can actually see fireworks that goes off in the village.

We were a tad disappointed that the two bedroom room that we booked is not exactly a two bedroom. We were expecting a proper two bedroom with shared living room/pantry area like most suite bedrooms. However, their two bedrooms is exactly like a normal motel room with 2 queen beds, and a separate bedroom on the side. so no living area at all.

Other than that, location is steps from the main village. so you can just walk out for meals/arcade/etc. very convenient.
