“Good, clean, cute place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

My family and I stayed at the Admiral Motel from 7/8/14-7/12/14. We came to Lake George from Ohio for a family vacation. I chose this motel because of the price, the Trip Advisor reviews, and the pictures. I wanted a basic hotel/motel room that was comfortable and clean. We stayed in room 21, which, according to the person who took my reservation (I think it was Janine), was a little larger than the standard rooms because it was on the second floor. The room was a good size and it had a cathedral ceiling with a skylight. We had a small refrigerator in our room, which we used. The beds were a little firm for my taste, but comfortable, with a pretty blue matelasse coverlet. We were on the end, so we only had one neighbor, and didn't have to worry about anyone walking by our room at night. It was very quiet. The room was also very clean. The pool was very clean and set at 85 degrees. It was a tiny bit chilly at first, but I was able to walk right in. The pool area was clean, as well. I felt like we were swimming in their yard because it was nice and homey. The location of the hotel is nearly perfect. I say nearly, only because it is across the street from the lake, not directly on it. Other than that, it is a short walk (5-10 minutes) to get to dozens of shops and restaurants, beaches, parasailing, and steam boats. If you are looking for a clean, well-kept place to sleep, with a nice pool, home-like atmosphere, and kind staff, the Admiral Motel will not disappoint.
Cons: not on the lake, no in-room coffee pot, no breakfast included
Pros: close to everything, quaint setting, clean, quiet, variety of room types, rooms have been recently updated and decorated, great pool, coffee in the morning on the front porch by the pool.

The place was very clean plenty of parking and the pool was great. The price was right to $104 for a deluxe room. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again. Everything was in walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful

Recently stayed at the Admiral Motel for a first time visit to Lake George. With all the accommodations to choose from my husband and I chose the Admiral Motel based on the reviews here, the price and the location. We were very pleased. The motel makes excellent use of the limited space available. The grounds and motel itself are well maintained, nicely landscaped with big trees and many flowers. The pool is heated, and there are a number of lounge chairs, and a few tables with chairs along the surrounding deck. It's a nice place to relax in the sun. The pool is close to the main road so there is traffic noise. Coffee and tea are available near the pool each morning.

We had a standard room with two double beds, on the first floor. The room was very clean, the bathroom floor sparkled. The decor is basic, pleasant. I was happy when I opened the door to find all the windows open letting in the fresh Adirondack air. The rooms and overall motel are not modern, typical chain hotel. It's more like staying at "Grandma's" house. But the bathroom is nicely updated. The rooms have a large picture window (and they were amazingly clean) which lets in lots of natural light. Unfortunately, they large window also provides a nice view into the room to all. We had to draw the drapes to change clothes, actually we kept them closed all the time because we didn't want others looking into our room. Nice sheer curtains would have been perfect in providing some privacy but still letting in the light. The heating/air conditioning unit provided worked very well, quickly heating up our room when we were chilled by the evening air. The bed mattress is firm, a bit too firm for me, but so it goes.

Being a first time visitor to Lake George we relied on the staff to recommend restaurants and to direct us to various places we wanted to visit. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. We really appreciated that friendly, personal touch.

The motel is located on Route 9, which is the main road through Lake George Village, toward the edge of the main commercial area (next to the local high school). There are a number of other motels and restaurants next to and near the Admiral. The cute town area is just a very short walk away (2 blocks). The beach is also a short walk (1/4 mile), as are more restaurants, stores, amusements, beach, grocery store (Price Chopper on Amherst Street), Lake George Bakery (also Amherst Street), Scoops Ice Cream, miniature golf (Around the World - the best and most challenging putt-putt), Fort Henry, steamboat tours, Battlefield Park all within a mile or less.

All public parking in Lake George Village is metered - so being able to walk to all these places was a huge bonus and money saver.

We just made the off-season rate for the Admiral Motel. It was a great price for a great motel. So glad we found the Admiral.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have a nice picture window but that also means people can see in easily.

My mom and I stayed at the Admiral Motel a few weeks back for Memorial Day Weekend. We had a great time! The Admiral Motel is in the perfect location- close enough to Lake George Village so that everything is a perfect walking distance, but far enough removed for privacy. The main house of the motel looks pretty and quaint from the main road. The rooms are extremely clean and nicely decorated. We had a very comfortable "home away from home" for the weekend. The staff are very polite and family oriented, and VERY helpful! They know the area really well and have great recommendations for fun things to do. I would definitely recommend the Admiral Motel to anyone looking for a comfortable, friendly, and enjoyable trip to Lake George!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are located on the second floor and include refrigerators and cathedral ceilings. Stand...

Great motel which was well maintained. The owner was friendly and available on site for questions. Location perfect for walking to town and Lake. Pool looked great, was too early in season for us to swim.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good. Some are upstairs with no elevators.
