“A newly refurbished Motel”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a motel that has been in the area for years and is now under new ownership.It has been refurbished and upgraded, Rooms are clean and reasonably priced.There are a few minor glitches but the cordial and helpful staff make up for any little problems.

We stayed here for a Friday night in may on our way up to lake Champlain for a fishing trip the owner was very friendly and a really hard worker from the time we we arrived at 11am he was preparing the landscape planting flowers and cleaning up when we came back from schroon lake around 4:30 he was still out there working. He gave the 4 of us adjoining rooms and gave us a deal on the second room really made us feel good. The rooms were clean with microwaves and small dorm style refrigerators we would stay here again.

I stayed at the Blue Ridge this year with my hiking group, as we did last year. I came back because this is a good, clean motel and I really appreciated the owner's kindness.
Basically, we stayed over Sunday night for a hike on Monday. After finishing our hike, the owner let us return to the motel at 10pm, take showers, and have dinner in his common area, before leaving back home, and he didn't charge us at for it. He even provided us with fresh towels for our showers. He is just a really nice guy who takes good care of his property. It isn't 5 stars, of course, but offers good value. I recommend it.

I had a pleasant experience when I stayed at the blue ridge motel. The owner and staff were very pleasant and accommodating to say the least. My room was clean, my bed was comfortable and I slept great with no complaints! I loved the Trails out back and the wildlife i saw while hiking. It's not very often you find nice, outgoing people that will do anything in their power to help you out if need be. I would recommend this motel to anyone. it is a nice place to stay, and the owner and staff made me feel at home. I see some of the other reviews of some other people on here and maybe they should have stayed at the Ritz Carylton and dished out a ton of money if this place was not up to their high end standards... I say this is a great place for normal people. Excellent work blue ridge! Keep up the good work

If all you want is a place to sleep and shower you'll be ok. Beds are NOT great. Rooms were clean. Internet spotty. You'll want to plan breakfast someplace else also. There is a fridge and microwave in the room but no coffee maker. The water is probably from a well and tastes bad! Pool??? We never found it. TV Dish works fine. If you book on-line be sure to have your confirmation and price quoted. There was an attempt to change the price that was confirmed in our booking. Once we produced the paperwork it was honored.

Room Tip: If I stayed here again, I'd ask to see the room and check the beds for comfort.

Terrible beds, 1970's style interiors, complimentary breakfast was a joke. Owners are nice, pool is nice, loud donkey on property is funny, but price should be lower for this type of below average facility.

This room there was a do not disturb sign in their door. When they came back that evening they came to the office I offered to come down and service their room and give them the items that they needed.
