Blue Ridge Motel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Schroon Lake
Reviewed 4 August 2012

If all you want is a place to sleep and shower you'll be ok. Beds are NOT great. Rooms were clean. Internet spotty. You'll want to plan breakfast someplace else also. There is a fridge and microwave in the room but no coffee maker. The water is probably from a well and tastes bad! Pool??? We never found it. TV Dish works fine. If you book on-line be sure to have your confirmation and price quoted. There was an attempt to change the price that was confirmed in our booking. Once we produced the paperwork it was honored.

Room Tip: If I stayed here again, I'd ask to see the room and check the beds for comfort.

Terrible beds, 1970's style interiors, complimentary breakfast was a joke. Owners are nice, pool is nice, loud donkey on property is funny, but price should be lower for this type of below average facility.

This room there was a do not disturb sign in their door. When they came back that evening they came to the office I offered to come down and service their room and give them the items that they needed.

Wasn't too sure when we checked in here. First impression was a large, yellowish stain on the bedspread. When we told the office, they immediately apologized and replaced all bedding for us. Bathroom is small, only a shower stall, no tub. Television offered DISH network, however, it appeared to be the least package available. Limited choices on the tube. Box springs and mattress needed replaced, both were visibly worn, not too comfortable. Office staff was very friendly, accomdating. Still working on the building, but glad to see some life come back into this area. Hope they got to upgrade beds, carpet, and bathrooms soon!

Whenever we go away, we tend to spend all day out of the hotel and just use it for sleeping and showering. A no frills room is fine for us. That's just what this was. When we checked in, we got a recommendation for dinner at a local restaurant named Drake's. The food was fantastic there.

We got into the room and there was 2 double beds and a tiny bathroom. It was recently renovated a bit and smelled of bleach so they'd obviously cleaned thoroughly before putting us in. The room was chilly so we turned the heater on. It was a bit fussy and took some playing with to get it to work. Included in the price was free wifi and Dish Network. The TV was an older model, not a flat panel. There was also a little fridge and microwave in the room which we used for keeping a couple bottles of water and a bottle of wine we picked up on Saturday after a tasting.

The co-owner told me when I checked in that there was a free continental breakfast. That consisted of setting out a coffee pot with coffee, stocking the little fridge with juices, and setting out muffins. The muffins were good, though.

If you're looking for luxury when you stay somewhere, you may want to shell out the extra cash and stay at Fort William Henry. But if you're looking for someplace just to stash your stuff, sleep and shower, this is the spot for you.

My wife and I always enjoy staying at the Blue Ridge Motel in Schroon Lake, NY. It is the personal touches which make this motel unique. DeeDee Cheviron goes the extra mile to make the motel special and to help the people who stay at the motel. During our last stay at the Blue Ridge we appreciated the fresh flowers in our room , and the hanging baskets of flowers outside of the rooms. The motel has nice rooms and a nice pool, but it is really the personal touches and thoughtfulness of DeeDee which make a stay there so nice. It is a special experience.

We were driving back from Quebec and needed a place for the night. Found this in the AAA book.

The room was fantastic! Very clean, new carpet, nice shower and bed.
Little fridge, microwave (w/ a bag of popcorn) and coffee maker. It was raining so the kids couldn't use the pool, but the outside play area and pool looked nice. We had a nice dinner in town - Timberwolf tavern(?). There is also a movie theatre in town. If I had more time,
I would like to have explored this area more. The Chamber of Commerce
in the center of town and open till 7pm - they have a wealth of information. Next time I'm on I87, I will make this a day and night stop.
