Horrible customer service. And very difficult to accomadate me and gave my room i ordered away

The good: had A/C, fridge, TV, Microwave, blow dryer, bed, mostly clean. Staff was friendly. Parking was convenient. The bad: bed was hard, A/C was right above head and loud, Towels were not soft. Walls were thin and in a small room we could hear the neighbor snore all night. Bottom line: in a pinch, this place was ok for the price, average motel level quality. Probably would not use again unless nothing else was available.

This hotel was OK for the price, but the location was inconvenient.

Not only was this place great value, with clean and comfortable rooms but the family who run it are very kind. They tried very hard to make my stay as good as possible. I recommend giving this place a try.

have always a great stay love the room and continental breakfast

The hotel was located central to our plans. Would have loved to have a coffee pot.

A few miles from Lake George, this no-frills motel delivers a clean room, good air-conditioning, working fridge and microwave, as well as a nice outdoor pool area. The proprietor is extremely helpful and responds promptly to all requests. He even greeted us by name in the morning. Nothing fancy, but good value.

This stay was the worst we have ever had in any of the hotels/motels we have stayed in in our lifetime. We were supposed to have a queen sized bed with "coffee pot" in our room and breakfast (we had black coffee in the motel office - if you can call it that) and that was it. We had a less than double bed. The bathroom was dirty. We we asked for a receipt on checking out they didn't want to give us one. They had (1) guess on the receipt instead of two - it was a horrible place.

This is our second time at this hotel. It leaves much to be desired, but served its purpose. It was close to conference we were attending. We reserved room for 3 and were given a room with one bed. The quickly made adjustment. Towels are pretty threadbare. We did appreciate microwave and fridge. Coffee was offered at office, but not until 8 AM and was too far away to be convenient. We will most likely look for another place next year.

My experince was lousy at best. No record of my reservation. Room clean but I could see through the very small towels. No bath mat, no shelf in the shower for soap etc. No secondary lock on the inside of the door. New moulding so somebody ripped it off. Pool supposed to be open until 10 PM, locked at 8:30. Would help is the front desk staff could speak ENGLISH!!!

THE [*] HOTEL AC DID NOT WORK DIFFERENT COLOR TOWELS TERMITES RUNNING AROUND AND SMELLED LIKE A toilet IN THE ROOM AS IF SOME ONE TOOK A DUMP IN THE ROOM

The motel did not meet my expectations. The heat was off, the smoke detector was sounding, the furniture was broken, and the curtains were not hooked to the curtain rod. Typed instuctions on the back of the door, told me to be sure all babies wore diapers in the motel! I booked two nights, refused to stay the first night and expected to cancel the second night. The motel refused to cancel the second night's reservation, stating the motel has a no refund policy. I had to pay for two nights at this motel...and refused to stay even 10 minutes.

The only heat was a small vent at the floor in the bathroom. The shower floor was painted with regular wall paint and the tile was covered with vinyl floor covering. The towels and wash rags were old and all different colors. There was some language barrier with the office help. Stains on sheets. Called office, had to walk down there to get clean sheets and info about heat and had to get cable for computer.

We went to Lake George. The previous trips we took to Lake George were better than this trip. We had housekeeping, we had wireless internet, we had things before that this one didnt have.

The motel is convenient to the highway. The room was clean, but had a musty odor. I booked a room that was listed as having a "view of the pool." The pool didn't look like it had been in use in years. It was covered with a tarp and cinder blocks (the brochure in the office had a picture on it of happy people around the pool that I guessed was 30-40 years old). The curtains on the large window on the room would not close all the way, which left something to be desired privacy-wise. They said they offered breakfast, but during check-in I noticed it was Cheerios or Fruit Loops, and the milk had probably been sitting out for at least 3 hours by then, so I had no desire to have any the next morning. I was staying for one night, and didn't plan to spend much time at the motel, so it was adequate. I won't say I'd never go back, but it would be a last resort if I were staying in the area again.

The hotel is false in thier advertisment, the pool was not open, it was closed. There were no new upgrades to the rooms because it looked old and unclean. There were stains on the furniture, walls and ceiling. The towels were a joke, couldn't even shower. Spend one night thank God!!! Wouldn't recommend.

I took care of family business. Worst place I stayed at. Would not stay there ever again.

too much wrong to list!!!!!!!

The rooms smelled. When we drove up to the place all I thought was Bates Motel because that's what it looked like. The towels reminded me of the the towels my grandmother used as rags when they got worn out. DO NOT STAY AT THIS MOTEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were transferred to America's Best Inn instead of where we booked. I wanted a pool, they didn't have one. The free breakfast? Cereal, english muffins, warm juice, etc. Go to Carl J's Cafe next door. Great food, reasonable, good beer. Our room lights and TV went out and they had to trip the breaker in the office. (why?) A good bucket of cleaner, rug shampooing and paint would work wonders here. And he's such a nice owner! I just wish he'd stay in our room for one night to see what needs to be done!!
