“Family trip to Lake George”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

The Econolodge in Lake George is a great value for the money and the family.
It is located about 1/4 mile from the water's edge and within walking distance of almost all activities and eating places in the town. We rented 2 double rooms on the second floor. The rooms were clean comfortable and spacious. There were both indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a free breakfast was provided. I recommended some changes to the menu which the manager agreed to address. Parking was on the premises.
Lake George is a friendly place for a family vacation with a lot of activities and the location of the hotel made access to these convenient

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road all have access to an open porch where there are tables and chairs for use any...

The staff could not even smile or say hello, had to walk to the other end if motel to smoke while the staff could smoke anywhere they liked, parking was ridiculous, way to compact, I would never stay there again

We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. All of our rooms are non-smoking, and the gazebo is a designated smoking area for guests.

Really nice budget hotel in great location. My third floor room offered a great view of the morning fog in the Adirondacks, the bikers in the day, and the activity at night. Friendly staff and great location make this highly recommended. Lake George is a great place with an abundent number of activities easily accessible by walking or trolley ride.

Room Tip: Third Floor

Close to restaurants and the "strip", our family of 4 spent 3 nights at the Econo Lodge at Lake George. The name says it all - the price was within our budget and my expectations were not that high, although I was heartened by the positive comments of previous occupants. I found the breakfast to be surprisingly good : waffles, toast, cereals, coffee and OJ. Just missing some fruit and yoghurt which we purchased at the Price Chopper down the road and stored in the (small) fridge in our room. Apart from the shower in our room #102 emitting alternate scalding hot and freezing cold temperatures (be careful with kids - my son let out the most almighty scream from being burned) and the battery of the fire alarm dying resulting in high pitched BEEPS at 6am one morning, we really enjoyed our stay. My 10 and 11 year-old sons made great use of the indoor pool and spa and I was happy to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and a book. Beds were fairly comfortable much to my relief!

Room Tip: First floor rooms are noisier as you hear the footsteps of the occupants above (or in our case, the...

We just stayed here last week and had a wonderful experience. Thank you for the friendliness in the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. The rooms were big and comfy. The pool was nice. We enjoyed the free continental breakfast each morning-you don't get that in many of the other hotels. The price was reasonable as well. We hope to stay here again on day.

Great location. Nancy at the front desk is superb. Very well maintained. Good breakfast. Watched the fireworks on Thursday from the balcony. Would love to go back there again. So many restaurants nearby to choose from.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second or the third floor.

This is a nice hotel at a reasonable price for a resort location. The grounds and outside decks are very well maintained. The rooms are large and housekeeping does a great job. It's about a mile to the north edge of downtown with it's many restaurants, shops and public lake access and activities. This is the second time we've stayed here over the past few years and we will stay here again when we return.
