Forge Motel
Ranked #8 of 12 Hotels in Old Forge
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Another fantastic stay at the Forge Motel. Huge rooms and wonderful views of the lake. Walking distance to the water park, restaurants and shops. We hadn't been to Old Forge in a couple of years and Jennifer at the front desk remembered me and my family from past visits...you don't get that kind of personal touch at the big chain hotels! The staff went above and beyond for us when I accidently threw out some electronics that my daughter had purchased on our way to Old Forge. Jennifer and staff went through bags of garbage to help me keep peace in the family and find the lost items. Thanks so much for another terrific holiday in the Adirondacks. We will be back!

Room Tip: Upper terrace rooms provide excellent views of the lake and are much roomier.

Rooms are very spacious and clean. Great view of the lake. The pool is nice for the kids and free breakfast. Great value for the price. Walking distance to everything in town. I will never stay anywhere else when visiting Old Forge!

Friendly atmosphere. Clean rooms . And the best veiw of the lake. Nice place to sit and watch the boats. Pet friendly. Continental breakfast is good. Nice indoor pool. Have stayed here on and off since the 60's. So like the title says, The only place we stay in Old Forge!

Room Tip: We always stay in the upper deck. The veiw is nicer and the pool is closer.

It's everything you would aspect from a motel. Basic, but clean (which in my opinion is the most important thing). The view is great though and it's nice and quiet. Als mentioned before breakfast is very simpel, but otherwise many other motels don't offer any breakfast so this will do. I would stay here again.

I have stayed at this motel for roughly 30 years and it is one of my favorite. Rooms are very clean and the view from the upper rooms of the lake is awesome. Nice continental breakfast they provide in the mornings. Place has an indoor pool which is also very clean. Staff is excellent and would do anything to make your stay comfortable. Motel is close to store/restaurants and most is within walking distance. You can also bring your dog which is very unusual now days. Would recommend this place highly!

Room Tip: go with the upper level

This place is an average place to stay, but does need room updating. We found our room clean and the service was good. An ordinary continental breakfast was served in the main lobby which consisted of bagels, Sara-lee muffins, fruit, coffee, tea & juices. We would stay again.
