“Nearly Perfect!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We stayed at the "Lake Motel" for 2 nights, and everything was just as we had expected or even better. We had the very nice room# 41 with a view of the swimming pool and Lake George. It wasn't very big, but it was cleverly and pleasantly furnished to accommodate a King size bed, a table with a TV, 2 chairs, night stands and very long chest of drawers (perfect for holding suitcases!). We also had a microwave and a refrigerator which was a blessing. Eating out in Lake George can be expensive, and this way we could supplement our meals with purchases from the "Price Chopper".
The motel appeared very clean inside and out, and the pool was pristine. We loved the boating/swimming/sitting area on the lowest level - especially at night when 2 the fire pits were on.
The only thing we had an issue with was the parking. There was parallel parking all the way down to the Lake, and the last part was quite steep. There were only a few extra parking spaces under the buildings where a car could be turned around - at least while the motel was not fully occupied.

Room Tip: Our room (#41) was very nice and had a view of Lake George. However, if you look for easier parking...

This was my family's first trip to Lake George, NY. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Beds comfortable. Rooms clean and very close to all the attractions. We could walk almost everywhere. Rooms were simple -- does not have "wow" factor, but I have to give 5 stars due to wonderful staff. There were very accommodating and will do anything and everything to make your stay the best ever. I can't say enough about the staff -- TOP NOTCH!! I would not even consider another motel if we choose to take another trip to Lake George. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED.

This motel is very close to the historic Lake George village. We ended up booking this motel as most properties in LG were sold out as it was close to the July 4th weekend. I had a simple room but it wasn't worth (over $200 a night) the money. The bed was pretty bad and it felt like a hammack! Most rooms have no lake view and there are a bunch of similar motels on that block that call themselves "resorts". If you head north and you will find excellent resorts within a few miles.

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful except they recommended a nearby breakfast place (Maramack) that was terrible.

This was a last minute reservation during off-season on a Sunday after an unsuccessful night of camping during to weather. We had easy access to a clean, ample room on the second floor. Bathroom was huge! Two QUEEN-sized comfy beds, TV, frig and microwave. Table w/chairs inside and out. No complaints. They tended to all my needs. View was fantastic! Directly on the lake. We had great weather. Short walk to everything possible. They had kayaks to use for free. Pool was clean. BBQ on deck. They had a fire pit with lots of seating. It was really nice and new-like. Free parking.

Room Tip: The rooms have different types of bedding. Just ask.

Do not go by the photographs on their website. They have made it look way more glamorous in the pictures that the real thing. Its just a regular motel & except a room or two none even have a Lake view. The room is extremely basic with no frills and there is no complimentary breakfast. Did not feel remotely worth the 100 odd dollars they charge per night. Parking can be very tricky but we somehow found spots both days. Its right in the heart of the main town so doesn't feel like a peaceful cut off place.

On the positive side its tidy & nothing too negative & so I'm giving it average.

If you are looking for something quick & reasonable just to spend the night then this is ok. But if you are looking for something a bit better than ordinary for an occasion you are better served finding some other place.

Room Tip: If at all you have to stay at this place then do so only if you have the Lake view room

We were disappointed to read that your stay with us was not
completely satisfactory. It is our goal to meet or exceed every guest's
expectations. In an effort to accomplish that, we pride ourselves on
representing our property as thoroughly and as accurately as possible on our
website. On our site we display a fully detailed property map showing the
motel layout, many photos of the grounds from different vantage points, as
well as 2 current photos of each and every room. Additionally, these photos
were not taken by a professional photographer, but rather were
taken by the owner or prior guests, and none of these pictures have been
altered or enhanced in any way. We know of no other lodging facility that
makes a greater effort to represent their property as completely and as
accurately as we do.

As always it was a pleasure to stay at this wonderful motel again. Every year my husband and I look forward to when our fire district plans this trip. We are excited more so for next year as the fireman's parade (the one which both my husband and I march in) is back in Lake George so all of our family and friends that stay with us at the motel will be able to see is marching again.

A special thank you goes out to Eddie who always make our trip so special. We are already planning for next years trip and look forward to seeing everyone again (with our same room -16)

Thanks for taking the time to tell others about your experience. All of us at the Lake Motel look forward to Firemen's Convention and seeing you have such a good time. Could not imagine a better group to host than the folks from New Hamburg. You folks are a class act. Look forward to seeing you again next year.
