We needed to stop for the night on our way north. I can remember passing by this motel as far back as the late sixties on our yearly treks north. As luck would have it the Pines had one room left ( the large room #1, sleeps 6 with a full kitchen). The proprietor apologetically offered the rate when I told her we were just 2. The rate was still $30 to $40 less than anything in the larger nearby towns.
Although the room had the look and feel of motels I had stayed in 30 to 40 years ago, it was very clean and roomy. We were able to have bit of dinner in the well equipped kitchen. Then had a good night sleep in the comfortable queen size bed. The only draw back was some road noise through the front window. Our unit is the closest to the hi way and the large single pane glass did not cut traffic noise much. This was not much of an issue because there is not a lot of traffic late or early through Lake George. I would guess this is not a problem for the units further back from the road.
If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay while in the area or passing through I would definitely recommend The Pines.
