Lesson being that you can't always pick a winner, in this case based on reviews. If it's true that there is new management in charge, I understand why the positive posts were decent, but not recent. It takes a lot to make me leave a negative review, but I have to leave feedback for this place...the Lido Motel was a disgusting mess with a very misleading website, and I don't say that with a bit of exaggeration. Went for a couple's weekend with my girlfriend and I must say that the best part was the refund I was given for what should've been the 2nd night I had booked ahead of time (packed my bags after one evening). The room smelled like a cross between a musty closet and a funeral home, and the curtains and bedsheets were no better. I went to a nearby store to buy air freshener and made a second trip for blankets to lay over the bed, which had black hairs strewn about (which were also found in the ice tray within the turned-off fridge, yum). No peephole in the front door helped peace of mind and for extra fun, the bathroom door did not lock and wouldn't completely shut. The microwave promised to each of their many "clean" rooms turned out to be a single unit within the main lobby for all to share, and the windows were left open upon arrival (didn't help the room air out, apparently) letting the cold, humid and rainy day outside in to greet me and stay the night. No worries, the heat didn't work either...that's why extra blankets come in handy!
At least they had wi-fi. Good comfort in an emergency, given that the rooms lack phones.
You get what you pay for, I suppose...cheap rates! Enjoy!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Lido motel offers spotless rooms in a quiet setting with lots of tall trees in the village of Lake George. Our beautiful flower gardens surround the swimming pool and add wonderful color to the terraces and courtyard. Tucked back behind all the Lake George action on a peaceful side street, the Lido Motel is just a block away from all that Lake George Village has to offer. Three Lake George beaches are in walking distance from the motel as well as the cruise ships, the village shops, restaurants, Fort William Henry and countless activities are just down the street. ... more less
