“Forge Motel”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

On the return trip from Lake George the weather caused us to stop in Old Forge. After looking over the motels, we picked the Forge Motel. This motel offers a indoor pool, great views of the waterfront. While looking out of the large picture window, a Whitetail deer came up and looked us over. Also out on the lake we had a nice view of a Loon. We will stay here any time we are in Old Forge.

Room Tip: We liked the lower level, great views.

We visited Old Forge to attend the Stems and Steins Festival as well as the Inlet Fall Festival, and stayed at the Forge Motel. It is an older place, but the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and courteous. We had a great view of the Lake as well. There is an indoor swimming pool and most things are within walking distance. There are no refrigerators or coffee makers in the rooms. This would have been a big plus, but continental breakfast is served each day in the Lodge. If ever back that way. I'll stay there again

I have been staying here for many many years and we are still very happy with everything. Rooms are very clean and everyone who works there is so friendly. Rates are very reasonable for the town and the location on the upper level is to die for. Thanks again for another wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: 15 thru 19 are the best views

My friends and I go to Old Forge for a weekend every year and stay at the Forge motel. The rooms are always very clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We love it that they have WIIFI access in all the rooms. The view is beautiful and I wouldn't stay any where else. The furnishings could stand some updating, but with that view who cares.

First off, this place is somewhat dated. The rooms were probably 80's vintage. But you hopefully aren't hanging out in the room anyways. The location is perfect. Right in the center of town. We were in the upper building, overlooking old forge pond. Great view. Sliding doors with adirondack chairs. The rooms are plenty big enough. Bathrooms are not bad. Lobby appears to have been updated recently. Very nice with indoor pool. Continental breakfast was sufficient, not huge, but it provides an option other than eating out and spending money. The only place I would guess is nicer is the Waters Edge, but at 2-3-4 times the cost. And the Forge still has better location to town, unless you are just there for EF/WS. I would recommend the Forge to anyone.

We stayed at the Forge Motel while we were in town for a wedding. It is an "old style motel" - as is most lodging in Old Forge. The room was very large with a great view of the lake. We had adirondak chairs right outside our sliding glass door. The bathroom is small but has separate sink area. Shampoo/conditioner were provided but No hairdryer and No iron in the room. We were able to get an iron from the office. TV is very small - but we spent very little time in the room. A continental breakfast is provided in the main lodge area - Coffee/juice, good bagels, packaged danish/muffins, bananas, fruit cups. The patio off the pool is very nice for enjoying morning coffee while overlooking the lake. The location was a highlight - the motel is walking distance to boat/kayak rentals, beach, scenic boat cruise, Enchanted Forest/Water Safari, and the restaurants/shops in town. The staff was friendly and helpful and our room & bathroom were very clean.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room next to the lodge office which is a nice location for the view but you do have t...

Stayed here for the first time while here on business. 1950's style family run motel. Rooms are outdated, but clean, large and very convenient to the public beach, and many Old Forge attractions. Water pressure in the shower is fantastic, and the beds are very comfortable! Rates are reasonable, and there is a continental breakfast set out in a beautiful Adirondack style room adjacent to the indoor pool. One to consider if you are visiting Old Forge.
