“Must stay for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Staff wonderful, friendly, helpful. We stay twice each year and more if we can arrange it. We love the lower level. Love sitting out by back by the lake. Close to everything. We are motorcyclists and can get bikes in under porch if weather is bad. We don't do the in house breakfast because part of the fukl is going to Walt's to eat. But the coffee adn juice are good, that's all we tried. We love the pool on rainy days because it is indoors.

Cold welcoming. Very outdated. Breakfast isn't even available till 8am which is diffcult when you have small children. Pool area was dirty.Website makes it out to be much nicer than it is. Worth maybe $80 a night but $120 no way.

Another fantastic stay at the Forge Motel. Huge rooms and wonderful views of the lake. Walking distance to the water park, restaurants and shops. We hadn't been to Old Forge in a couple of years and Jennifer at the front desk remembered me and my family from past visits...you don't get that kind of personal touch at the big chain hotels! The staff went above and beyond for us when I accidently threw out some electronics that my daughter had purchased on our way to Old Forge. Jennifer and staff went through bags of garbage to help me keep peace in the family and find the lost items. Thanks so much for another terrific holiday in the Adirondacks. We will be back!

Room Tip: Upper terrace rooms provide excellent views of the lake and are much roomier.

Rooms are very spacious and clean. Great view of the lake. The pool is nice for the kids and free breakfast. Great value for the price. Walking distance to everything in town. I will never stay anywhere else when visiting Old Forge!

Friendly atmosphere. Clean rooms . And the best veiw of the lake. Nice place to sit and watch the boats. Pet friendly. Continental breakfast is good. Nice indoor pool. Have stayed here on and off since the 60's. So like the title says, The only place we stay in Old Forge!

Room Tip: We always stay in the upper deck. The veiw is nicer and the pool is closer.

It's everything you would aspect from a motel. Basic, but clean (which in my opinion is the most important thing). The view is great though and it's nice and quiet. Als mentioned before breakfast is very simpel, but otherwise many other motels don't offer any breakfast so this will do. I would stay here again.
