Colonel Williams Lake George Motel and Resort
Ranked #65 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed 12 August 2013

The motel was very clean. This is not a resort in the sense of a high-end hotel resort; there is nothing glitzy about it. They do provide a nice play area for children, and a game room as well, with old fashioned fun stuff: air hockey, foozball, and ping pong. The room was small but comfortable. Hair dryers are provided on request. The morning breakfast wagon was open from 8 to 10 AM, serving coffee, yogurt, English muffins, donuts. It wasn't a lot, but it kept you going. The internet service was spotty at best. I felt the price was a bit expensive, but if you are traveling with kids this is a really good place. Also, it was very close to Lake George and the outlet malls along Route 9.

With some of the other reviews, I got a little nervous but it was excellent. Friendly staff, spotless grounds it was great! The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Would definitely stay there again and it was so close to everything too! Very impressed.

We stayed at the Colonel Williams for two nights and had a great overall experience. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the rooms were very clean. The hotel was close to both Lake George (~5 minutes) and Saratoga Springs (~30 minutes), but you do have drive to get to either town. Overall it was a great value for the money and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the area.

PS - Two words: Breakfast Wagon.

The owner and his daughter are both very very friendly (contrary to some other reviewers' assertions). We stayed there last summer and, after a lot of research on other hotels, my wife and I decided to return. We did NOT regret it. The playground on site is wonderful for small children (we have a 2 year-old and a 3 1/2 year-old). Both of them rushed from our room to the playground early in the morning and when we returned from out daily excursions. The room itself (two queen sized beds) was spacious, neat, and very well maintained with a comfortable and up-to-date bathroom.

The inside pool is also great for the kids while the sauna and hot pool (which we did not use) is refreshing for the adults.

All in all, the location (two minutes from Magic Forest and no more than five minutes from the village) is excellent.

So...if you are able to adhere to the common-sense rules set in order to maintain the quality of this establishment (like staying off the grass where the sign says KEEP OFF GRASS, and not soiling the rooms with juices that the next guest will then have to "enjoy), you will not regret your decision to stay there.
Would we go back next year? Absolutely!

The owners were rude and nasty. It is obvious that they care more about the grounds than the customers. My son was yelled at for walking on the grass, then the owner followed him in his golf cart to yell at him some more. He was terrified! When spoken to by my husband, the owner became furious, swearing and threatening. The other owner (daughter of the man in the golf cart) was also argumentative and rude, instead of helpful and polite. No apologies were given for this unacceptable behavior. We were told that if we did not like the owners yelling at my son we could "get your [--] out of here!" We did. They are lucky that we did not call the police. If the owners have to write a disclaimer after every negative review, there is something very wrong. Do not stay here!

Once again we returned to Lake George and stayed at the best place in the area.
Location was perfect for what we wanted to do. Close to the outlets and a few minutes to the village.The trolley stops at the front gate so you do not have to take your car. Just 20 minutes
from Saratoga Racetrack. What more can you ask for...
