“Basic but excellent family motel”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Nothing fancy here, but it has everything you need. Clean, pleasant, spacious rooms, nice pool. Steve, the owner, was friendly and welcoming and as someone else noted, it's biker friendly - he has a supply of wood squares to put under kickstands (thereby protecting our bikes AND his parking lot). Good location, not too far from downtown Old Forge but far enough to avoid the gridlock that hits on summer afternoons. A well-stocked convenience store/gas station across the street, and a liquor store next door! Coffee available in the office (limited hours). Rooms didn't have things like hair driers but I bet if you asked, the office had one they would lend you. One minor issue: I'm happy that the rooms are smoke-free. But the result, when we were there, was that all the smokers sat in front of their rooms puffing away, so we nonsmokers couldn't sit outside or even open a window. I don't see a solution to this (and I don't blame the motel).

Room Tip: I asked for a room at the back of the property, away from the highway. Probably doesn't really m...

Hi Foodie,

Yes you are correct on the loaner hair driers and we also have a few irons for loan to. Thanks for the glowing review and hope you get the time for a ride to the north country again sometime.

This was our second year staying at Christy's. The rooms are clean, it's close to everything, and the kids were so excited to see the deer in the morning! Kids also really enjoyed watching the movie outside in the evening. Reasonably priced - we will be back next year!

Hi lar729,

Thanks for returning to Christy's and the Old Forge area for your family vacation. It's fun doing those little extra things for the kids and hearing them enjoy it. But I do have to say I can't take credit for the deer.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review,
Steve

I expected a classical old style motel as it looks from the outside, but was surprised the rooms are very clean and modern. The staff (owner) was very friendly. On Thursday night he brought out a fire pit to allow folks to gather. He also set up a large white screen with speaker and projected a Disney movie, Brave, for the kids and family. The outside is very well maintained as well as the pool area. It is very close to restaurants and across the street from a FasTrac, not far from a Kinney drug store for extra items or those unexpected situations. If I had any complaint it was the mattress was a little too bouncy for my taste. The rate was very good considering the height of tourist season and other motels in the area. My wife can be picky and was very pleased. I would not hesitate to return.

My Husband and I have stayed at Christy's every July and Sept for many years. We have always been greeted by the owner Steve who remembers our name and gives us the same room every year. The rooms are clean, and pride is everywhere. The Motel is very family friendly and works very hard to make your stay a truly relaxing time.
Highly recommend this Motel..

Hi Wingthing76,

Thanks for the review and staying at Christy's. No big thing on your Mom's AC, I'll take easy fixes like that all day. I know it's hard sometimes and I don't know how much free time you have. But if you could, you should try to get in more than just one day sometime. There are so many things to see and do I think you guys would really have a great time exploring the Old Forge area.

We stayed at Christy's Motel this past weekend for 3 nights and pride of ownership is evident everywhere at this motel. The owner, Steve, is friendly and accommodating and works hard to make sure the place is pin perfect; the lawn is cut and in great shape, the pool is clean and tidy, the flowers and motel porch clean and kept up. The rooms were very clean and very well-looked after if not the most modern. Lots of room for the 5 of us!
We loved the location (about a km from the water park) and the green space, BBQ and pool made the evenings great for the kids. Steve showed "drive-in" movies for the kids every night which was a lot of fun. We will definitely stay here when we return to Old Forge. (also right beside liquor store and across from Fast Track for pizza, beer etc....)
