Gentleman Johnny's Motel
Ranked #64 of 89 Hotels in Lake George
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Stayed in August for a couple of days while attending a wedding. Can't beat the price for this area during the peak season. Close to everything yet far enough away for some peace and quiet with a view of the lake.
Accommodations were clean and served the purpose and the owners were pleasant. Would go back again. If you are expecting the Hilton look elsewhere. It is what it is.

Stayed here for a few nights last week in august, room was ready, clean and the people running the motel were very friendly Its off the main drag which was also nice, because that's pretty hectic, so if your looking for some rest at the end of the day this is the place for you.

This little place was ideal for an overnight stay. But bring your own soap and shampoo! We into Lake George on a Friday afternoon around noon and got a room for only 70.00 plus tax! One night stay only. It was a little run down but clean. The ac was dusty and the shades needed repair. Small TV, and other than that ideal for a one night stay!

Two girlfriends looking for some R+R, we found it here! We arrived a little early for check in, but were given the key to our room, as it was ready! Room was fine, nothing fancy but clean and comfy. For the price in this location, I had low expectations, though the reviews were pretty good! The pool was cold, but the weather had been in the 50's overnight for a few nights and I am sure it was still warmer than the lake itself! It was clean and the area around was nicely kept and we enjoyed the sun in the nice lounge chairs. We spent a couple of hours there, enjoying the heat of the sun and it was quiet enough to doze off for a bit. The owner's, I assume, were very pleasant, I asked for cups as there were none in the room and was given more than I needed. We enjoyed our stay, slept well and the water in the shower was as hot as you could have wanted.
The location was on a hill and I asked about the ability to see the fireworks to be shown on the lake in the evening and was told that you can see some but not all of them, so we decided to watch them from town. Lake George village was less than 5 minutes away. We got extremely lucky and got a great parking spot and perfect view of the fireworks, though we were not able to get on the fireworks cruise, as it was full. If you are planning the fireworks cruise, get your tickets early!!!
This is a no frills place, plain and simple, but it had what we needed for a quick get away! (Bring your shampoo, as only soap is provided.) I will more than likely go back!
I did notice an odor in the room, though I am not sure exactly what it was, it could have been from recent cleaning or just from being closed up. We left the door open while sitting outside and it was fine after that. The other issue could have been that there was only one extra blanket for 2 beds, and it was definitely not a hot August night! The beds only had a light quilted bedspread in addition to the sheets, but my friend used the blanket and I was quite comfortable. If you have 2 people who tend to be chilly, it could be an issue. Of course, this was something I didn't think about until after 11PM and would not have wanted to bother the owners.

We've been there at June 2012 and we stayed there for almost 3 months. Me and my girlfriend loved that place. People were kind and helpful. And you can always use trolley to go to Lake George.

Especially I wanna thank to Nancy who make our holiday/work pleasant. She is thoughtful, kind and she has such a great heart.

If we ever visit Lake George again, that's the place we're gonna stay. Thanks for everything.

And of course, I recommend this place to everyone.

Stayed in unit 12 and found the following. Needs to be upgraded in furniture, musty odor. Lacks cleanliness, found four day old pizza in the oven. Refrigerator had mold. Bed frame broke. Obvious issue with housekeeping. Pool locked at 2 in the afternoon on a Friday. Lack of concern from the management after expressing our feelings about the night. Overall very hard to sleep there and will never return again.

Room Tip: Unit 12 not recommended

This motel, owned by a very nice couple, lies just outside the main strip of Lake George. The motel is secluded and safe. Has very nice grounds, a new swimming pool, and a play area for kids. It is close to EVERYTHING and the prices are VERY reasonable. They offer continental breakfast as well. I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again
