We just returned home from our trip to Lake George, NY. I wanted to write the review while the info is fresh. We booked Gentleman Johnnys Motel due to the trip advisor recommendations and the price. For 75 dollars a night, you really cant go wrong. This was our first trip to the area so we had nothing to gage our decision with. We stayed in room 17, which is in a building with 1 other room next door. There are maybe 4 buildings with only 2 units in each, then there is a longer building more like a motel. I believe in those units there are 2 double beds. In ours....we had 1 queen...which we requested. We were glad to be in our little building. Much less activity going in and out. The continental breakfast was bagels, toast, cream cheese and coffee. Fine with us.(remember...the price was 75 dollars.)
The people behind the desk were helpful and the room was simple, but clean. I looked hard to find something bad about the bathroom and there was nothing. Very clean and thats what I needed to see. There is a trolley stop at the end of the
driveway. Trust me...take the trolley. We attempted to park in the down town area and recieved a 75 dollar ticket for apparently parking in a handicapped spot(unmarked.) Lake George apparantely hires walk a cops to write as many tickets as they can and believe me they do. After seeing all the hotels in the actual downtown area, I was glad to be staying slighly off the beaten path as it looked like way too much going on there.
I would not say you could walk downtown from this location.
It might be 1 mile...but not a really good walk. Take the trolley.
The only thing that we might have liked is if the hotel was on the lake side. This is on the other side of the road. Other than that, for the money, we were happy to have this little place to come back to. The pool, which I never usually go into but did, was clean.
