“A Pretty Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

On a recent trip to New England and Upstate New York we stayed at the Lake George Econo Lodge. It was clean and comfortable and the front desk folks were very nice and efficient. (My wife was not feeling well and they allowed us to check in an hour early.) The continental breakfast was more then adequate. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I was told that rooms on the south east side (left facing the office) were larger and possibly nicer...

The place has not been renovated for many decades but everything is perfectly clean, location is perfect and pool and hot tub where hot and in good condition. This was the best we can expect from an Econolodge.
We will come back.

We thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. Our hotel is exactly 20 years old. We do our best to exceed the Econo Lodge brand standards, and offer more amenities to our guests. Our continental breakfast far exceeds the required menu items. Also, every room has a flat screen TV, which is not a brand standard. In 2014, we will have all new bedding and window treatments. We hope that you will visit us again soon.

The Econo Lodge Lake George was perfect for our recent weekend trip. We wanted to getaway and enjoy the colors of fall. We did not, however, want to break the bank in the process. The hotel is located at the top of Canada Street and we could walk to most of the places we wanted to see. We especially enjoyed sitting on the third floor deck. From there we could see plenty of fall colors in the mountains.

The breakfast room offered a nice selection to start our day. Nothing like hot oatmeal on a cool Adirondack morning. They offer waffles and crumb cakes, too.

It should be noted that this hotel is smoke-free in all its rooms. There is a gazebo on the grounds for those who need to smoke. With all my allergies, it was nice to know our room was smoke-free from previous guests. Thank you, Econo Lodge for this consideration!

We would stay at this hotel again in the future, especially at this time of the year when the summer crowd has moved on and the colors are so pretty.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms on the front have the best views.

Stayed here for one night. Room was clean, but had a musty hotel smell. Large rooms. Very loud shower. We were given an adjoining room & could hear every word that the people next door said... Close to the village, but a bit of a walk. Hallway could use a new paint job. Parking lot is very small- good luck backing out if you have a van or SUV. Would stay again, but prefer somewhere closer to the village...

This is a great hotel clean very well kept inside and out brilliant value for money we could see the lake from our room. Plus breakfast included. Now the reason why only 4stars we had a honeymoon couple in the room above us and the sound proofing is lousy plus the plumbing is very noisy so when they had a shower and giggled a lot we had to laugh with them .

Room Tip: Get a room on the third floor

My family and I flew into Albany airport and we drove to lake George and we picked this hotel because of the great location. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It is located in the heart of lake George so we never had to use our rental car again. It was a little too cold to use the pool but it looked real clean and inviting.

We stayed here recently, had a wonderful time. You are welcomed by a friendly woman behind the desk - lets you know what is going on in the Village - directed my grandsons to the indoor pool (as she heard them talking about it) and off we went. The rooms are clean, the location is perfect, and we got to see the Saturday night fireworks in the Village from our third floor deck!

Room Tip: ask for the third floor - no parking lot noise, and you can see the lake
