Check in was after 5 pm, about 25 people in line. I showed up at 4 pm and saw cleaning staff gathered together chatting away! Told to come back later. Why? Surely there were some rooms available at 4pm. Very poor check in process. Desk staff did not care in the least. I did not know that there was a "breakfast room" or lounge on site. Must have been a wedding sometime on Saturday, the chairs and tables were folded up on the lawn the whole time I was there, I left Monday. Cigarette butts and plasitc bottles and caps everywhere on the grounds. Nobody was cleanning up in any area, including the pool area. Doors were scratched, overhang had peeling paint, room was dated, old rug, old bathroom, the rooms need to be updated. Pretty sure that the main building was good, but where I stayed the place really needed renovation. Grounds are not well kept, and no one seemed to care. Poorly run establishment. BUT can't beat the location or the scenery, it just doesn't get any better in Lake George!
