Admiral Motel
Ranked #17 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Boy did we luck out. This was a last minute trip and first call I made was to this hotel. (they had a cancellation) Clean , quiet and well kept. Within walking distance to everything in the Village but the feel of being in a motel in the woods. Coffee /tea on the deck in the morning and the staff is SO happy and pleasant.
I sent an email to ask about hairdryers in the room and Janine got right back to me with an answer . They aren't in the rooms but will provide one if you need one.
I would not hesitate to recommend this motel.
thank you !

We stayed at the Admiral for a long weekend with my wife and two kids. It was very clean and one of the closest motels to the strip. Being able to walk up to the strip was key because parking is limited and metered. It was very clean and housekeeping made the beds every day. They have coffee and tea on the porch every morning. I would definitely stay here again. The only drawbacks were we wished there was juice for the kids and some sort of danish/donuts for breakfast. The bathroom counter was small too but other than that we loved it. Thanks for having us!

This Motel is perfectly charming! The staff comes out from behind the counter to explain in great detail anything and everything you want or need to know? They are the kind of staff you can only remember from days gone by! I don't mean to insinuate that they are older because they are not, they just have the manners you'd wish all had. From the fresh coffee in the morning at the pool, to the restaurants recommended... all within easy walking distance... especially the dinner and fireworks aboard the Adirondack on Thursday evening, WOW This is vacationing!

Don't miss the Prospect Mountain Drive, we saw an Indigo Bunting for the 1st time in our lives, absolutely beautiful! An hour and a half away there's Whiteface Mountain (another MUST DO!)

I am getting off track so... back to the Motel, what a home base for everything good about Lake George. The people, price, cleanliness, everything about the Admiral is just right and best of all... not stuffy, it's affordable, casual and comfortable. I would recommend the Admiral to all my friends, relatives and even the friends we haven't met yet!!!! Enjoy, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: numbers 12 and 14 have no rooms above them! Nice and quite!

After reading comments in Trip Advisor we decided to try the Admiral Motel. The rates are reasonable and rooms are very clean. We stayed on the second floor with a skylight and mini frig. There are chairs to sit outside of your room to relax. The staff (especially Janine) was very friendly and helpful. There is an art gallery in the office area. The grounds are shady with flowers and well maintained. The pool is nice and coffee is offered in the morning on the front porch. You are within walking distance to the beach, park, restaurants, shops & boat rides. The Admiral is well worth the money. You will not be disappointed.

Have read comments in Trip Advisor over the years - have not been disappointed when booking motels. We had # 5 teenagers with us. We felt safe and very welcome by the owners (Sue & Janine) and their staff. Rooms are immaculate and within walking distance of the center of Lake George. Also, rooms are "quiet" - can't hear people next to you.

Room Tip: 2nd level rooms are very spacious.

Our 33rd annual trip to LG and have always stayed at 1 of 2 motels depending on vacancy. Last year, it was about budget over vacancy (see my other review on last year's lodging) . What a mistake!!! The staff at the Admiral reminded me this year that you can skimp on meals , attractions , etc but NOT on lodging!!! The rooms are spotless, pool is perfect, and staff is friendly and helpful. The only complaint ( but not really) was the parking situation upon returning late on a Sat night . This is to be expected I guess during the height of vacation season in LG lol. Will def be back from now on!!!!

Thanks for your input on our establishment. We truly appreciate it. As for the parking, we are sorry but sometimes when people bring extra cars and don't register them it is difficult to monitor into the evening. I'm so glad you'll be back! Thanks again. Sue & Janine
