The Bad: Let me start off saying how tight the parking is. They can fit a ton of cars in there, but it is cramped. It was so busy that we were advised not to move our car so we wouldn't lose our parking spot. So if we wanted to go anywhere we had to walk. If you drive anywhere and it's a busy weekend, you may not have a place to park when you get back. Air conditioner was really loud. Woke us up almost every time compressor kicked on. The on-site Club Hamilton's breakfast buffet was way over priced at $12.99 a person for the quality of food that was there. Bacon was actually burnt black..all of it.
The Good: The bed was comfy and the room was nice. Nothing fancy, but you don't spend too much time in there anyways. Pool area and Cabana bar is nice. Great view of the lake. The 10% discounts to numerous restaurants was nice. We used one of them. The location is perfect right in the village. Staff were very nice and polite.

A little pricey for lake view rooms but the entire place was immaculate. The pool was clean and they added a small roof top bar/eatery on site along with a restaurant that was already there. The views are to die for if you have one of the end units facing the lake. A hot tub would have been nice but overall a wonderful stay just beyond the village limits. Well within walking distance to the village though. Very happy with our stay

Room Tip: get a lake front room if you can,if not get as close to the back as possible

This was our first trip to Surfside and to Lake George. I chose them because when talking to Jodi on the phone, I felt welcomed and comfortable. She proved me right. The amenities are constantly being updated...the room was spacious & quiet. The food was the best ever! The view was majestic. very clean. The staff gets 5 stars.

Room Tip: make sure you get a room close to the Lake....will cost a few dollars more but the view is worth it...

This is our second year going to Surfside on the Lake in Lake George, NY. This time we went for the Memorial Day weekend and stayed in a Junior Lakeview Suite. The room was clean, spacious and the view was awesome! One of my favorite things was waking up in the morning and looking out the big patio door at the lake, from the bed! The pool was sparkling and the grounds were immaculate. The rooftop bar was finally open and the drinks were flowing! They have a fantastic breakfast buffet and we try to eat there at least once during our stay! There was also a kitchenette in our room for when we felt like staying in and enjoying the view from our balcony. We were within walking distance to the Village and when we didn't feel like walking the trolley stop was right across the street. The staff was very friendly and attended to our every need. Some of the staff even remembered us from last year! I truly love this hotel for it's retro feel and atmosphere. If you want beige and bland stay at one of the many "corporate chain hotels" in the area, if you want fun and fabulous stay at Surfside!

Room Tip: Last year we stayed in a regular double room which was fine for the week. This time we upgraded to a...

Beautiful grounds. Clean and spacious room with a balcony and beautiful view of the lake. I would stay here again. Front desk friendly. Walking distance to the village. Couldn't take advantage of the pool or restaurant because they weren't open the weekend I went.

My family stayed at the Surfside for 3 nights in Aug. 2013. The room and grounds were really clean. The location can't be beat, walking distance to the village. There were lots of tables and seating throughout the property with great views of the lake. The pool was a good size and the beachfront was decent. Great spot for a family getaway. What really sets the hotel apart from all the rest... when we were half way home, my son realized he left his iPod in the hotel room. When I got home I called and asked if they would look for it. They called me back the next day, maintenance found it on a high shelf in the room, and they mailed it back to us!

We just returned from a weekend at surfside. We were in a lake front room with the fall foliage package. We were pleasantly surprised at how updated the rooms were. The staff was very pleasant and couldn't do enough to help you. The view from the rooms is amazing. Including in our package was dinner for both nights, breakfast both days, a boat ride, and half off the fort. The room even came with champagne. We went to the barnsider for dinner one night, BBQ food, very good, and the east cove the other night which was also excellent. We had breakfast at the surfside with a gorgeous view. Many of the shops were closed because the season was over but we had an awesome time. I would definitely recommend the surfside on the lake!! The mattress was a little squishy but we were told they were getting replaced soon. All in all a great time.
