We visited Lake George on our way to Vermont and Maine and stayed a weekend night at the Holiday Inn Resort Lake George in August. A little bit more about the town of Lake George in a minute.
The Holiday Inn is a nice place to stay, whether you are passing through, as we were, or staying for a longer time. Our room was actually a suite with a separate living room area. There was a sliding door between the two areas, which we liked, because some family members could sleep while others stayed up without anyone bothering the other. Wi-fi is included in the price and worked well.
The room was comfortable and had good amenities. They expect you will use the resort facilities and have pool towels and various activities in addition to the pool. The balcony outside our room directly overlooked the pool as was true of most and possibly all the other rooms.
When we arrived, we thought the hotel was oddly configured – our room was a long walk from the elevator – but we realized that the design ensured that everyone had a view of the pool and, for that matter, Lake George.
Lake George itself is beautiful. The hotel isn’t strictly on the lake, but it’s on a hillside a few hundred feet away and we had a pretty good view from our room. The hotel is kind of at the edge of town – it’s a brief 10-minute or so walk to the main drag or you can just drive down and park.
As for the town, you will find it either full of tourist activities or just plain touristy depending on your taste. They have all kinds of offerings such as miniature golf (the one by the lake apparently is recognized for its design, but there is another one called “goofy golf” down the road), swim parks, a kiddie park, boat rides, the “Frankenstein Wax Museum”, at least two arcades, and similar fare.
