We chose this motel to be within walking distance of downtown Lake George.The room was clean and the bed comfortable.We were on the end with windows overlooking the pool and lake.It was fine because it was chilly so no one was swimming so there wasn't a noise issue.Since there is no smoking in the rooms ,guests are encouraged to smoke down by the lake or by the pool.That includes a table right under our window. If people were sitting below our window talking and smoking we would have left the hotel.So I would suggest to the hotel to remove the smoking from the pool area for the comfort of all of the non-smoking guests.So if you stay in the warmer months and noise is an issue I would not stay near the pool.

Room Tip: stay away from the pool if noise and smoking bother you.

Stayed at the Lake Motel from Sept 13-16th. We called the day before to confirm check-in and the the wonderful gentleman who answered the phone said if we call them that evening and its still vacant we'd be able to check in anytime we want the following day! I thought that was not only rare but so nice of them! Check in was a breeze and we were well informed about the goings on and best places to eat, room deliveries etc.. Our room was on the first floor (19) it was small, very clean and the bathroom was comfortably spacious. Bed was a bit uncomfortable, mattresses could use updating.

My husband was a smoker so having a little table outside with chair and ashtray was great! View of the lake was a short walk down the end of our balcony. From our room we could hear the Minnie Ha Ha tooting in the lake and we were able to take advantage of primo seats for the fireworks on the lake Saturday night.

On Saturday night Lake Motel offered its guest a great catered bbq from a nearby restaurant for a very reasonable price.

Parking is a bit tight but manageable.

Room Tip: Higher the room number, closer to lake.

My wife and I and another couple spent one night at the Lake Motel in early September. I chose the motel based on previous Trip Advisor reviews, location, and reasonable price. Our hostess made us feel extremely comfortable, from my initial inquiry phone call through check-in. She was welcoming, congenial, helpful with recommendations, and professional. We arrived mid afternoon, after taking a one hour cruise on the lake. We had a delightful swim right in front of the motel in the crystal clear waters of Lake George, followed by an hour or so in kayaks available to motel guests, and even a swim in the motel pool.Our hostess suggested a great place for dinner within walking distance of the motel, where we were served our meals just before a massive power outage in the area. We literally ate our meals by candlelight. After walking back to the motel we were loaned a flashlight (yes they were prepared for such emergencies), and spent the rest of the evening on a covered porch area near our room on the upper lever, looking out at the storm as it traveled over Lake George - magical! The electricity came on right before we turned in. For breakfast (again at the suggestion of our hostess) we walked to a local bakery, picked up some delicious pastries, and had our breakfast with complementary motel coffee (surprisingly good) on that same covered verandah overlooking the lake ... perfection! The rooms are a little smallish, but perfectly adequate, and clean, and the grounds are well maintained. Yes, we'd definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms nearer the lake are best.

thanks edri, shannon and mary for such wonderful, friendly service..will definitely be back!! will say "be prepared to walk, but worth every step"! being in town is definitely the way to go..park your car when you arrive and you don't need to move it again until you leave..after reading other reviews, all i can say is if you want high-class accommodations you need to spring for a stay at the Sagamore..for the rest of us that live on a budget, the Lake Motel provides all you will need/want and more!!

Room Tip: definitely worth paying few dollars more to be closer to the lake..view's spectacular and main r...

We booked the lake motel based on the reviews on trip advisor. I admit, we booked it more quickly than usual...I usually do more research but was running out of time. This was a return trip from Burlington, VT after taking my son to college.

It is very clean and the price is right, as stated in other reviews. We chose the second floor as we expected a view. We basically faced a the wall of the motel next to us. The driveway is very narrow and the motel is situated on a small slice of property. The only way to really have a view is to be up in the front few rooms. We did not enjoy dragging our suitcases up those stairs, to be in a small room with no view. Stay on first floor if that is an issue!

If you are looking to economize, be within walking distance to town, stay in a clean, well preserved place this is a good find. The pool is small but does face the lake. It was not heated when we were there end of August. That was also disappointing.

I would have preferred something a little bit out of town, like Bolton Landing, for a quieter more charming, spacious room. Downtown is good for families, not as much for couples in my opinion. I am giving them four stars instead of three because the people that run the motel are very nice and helpful. It was not their fault we did not choose correctly.

Room Tip: Pick a room as close to the water as possible. Not worth climbing to second floor with suitcases if...
