Ramada Queensbury/Lake George
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Queensbury
Reviewed 21 August 2005

What a strange place. There's a grandiose entrance driveway lined with trees and flags, but when you round the bend you discover the hotel looks like the back of a bowling alley and is right on 1-87.

Our room (#115) smelled - no, stank - of some cherry-scented cleaner. It was so bad we had to air out our clothes when we returned home.

We happened to be in the room for an hour at mid-day, and twice during that period the housekeepers entered even though the room was already done. The first time, the housekeeper knocked and then opened the door immediately. The second time, there was no knock and two other housekeepers simply wandered in, looked around and wandered out again, not even answering my greeting. I opened the door and asked them again as they walked away, "Can we help you?" One finally turned around and said they were "checking to see if you had your hangers." Uh-huh.

I've stayed at worse hotels, but never paid as much to do so - and never encountered such strange housekeeping practices.

We were a little worried as we approached the hotel as it sits right next to the interstate and looks quite dated. Luckily the lobby and front desk staff were both nice so we were less anxious about seeing our room. It turned out to be just fine. We had a room with 2 double beds. The room was large and clean and also had a dresser and a table with 2 chairs. The bathroom was small but clean and contained only the tub and toilet. The sink and vanity area is just outside the bathroom which prooved to be handy as we were 4 people. We had no noise problems. The pool (which we did not use) was in a seperate but attached building. It was in a large room with many tables and chairs to lounge on surrounding it and I'm sure that most parents and kids would love it. Neither breakfast nor coffee in the lobby is provided for free, though there is a coffee maker in the room and newspapers in the lobby at no extra charge. There isn't much around the hotel that is in walking distance, but a big mall is only a short car ride away.

This is from a very discriminating traveler, I was looking for a hotel to spend the night on my way from Brooklyn to Montreal and this hotel was in the perfect location and I liked the price they offered so I reserved a room at this hotel. Upon arriving there I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel, The rooms are nice and clean and very well maintained, the staff was also very friendly and accommodating and the service was excellent. I would definitely stay there again if I needed to spend a night in the area and would recommend it to anyone looking to spend the night at a nice decent hotel for a very reasonable price.

We really enjoyed our stay at this above-average Ramada.
This is an older hotel that is well maintained, but the thing that struck us most was the friendly attitude of the staff. Every houskeeper, front desk clerk, maintenance guy and server went out of their way to say hello.
The rooms were very nice, although, next time I would request one that faces the courtyard because it is quieter.
We had an excellent German dinner in the resteraunt and got to meet their chef from Germany.
Comfy beds a big plus! Good location too. We were about five minutes from Lake George and ten minutes from the race track in Saratoga.
