Our 4th time staying here and as always we enjoyed ourselves immensely! Will be back again! This year we had to be a last minute booking due to managing my mom's care and we definitely wanted to stay longer but this is always our first choice and we took what we could get! The beach activities our so much fun. Ping pong, corn hole, watercraft rentals, volleyball and playground are such bonuses! Also, the lake is great to swim in as well as the pool. The cafe has great food and also tasty ice cream. There's a game room too! We will be back next year. Thanks Scottys!

Hotel's Favorite
Just was at this resort this weekend. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Great beach, lake, restaurant and bar. Also had fire pit at night. Rental of water sports were great. Rooms super clean and had everything you need. Also super clean pool and beach area. Lots of parking. In my opinion this is the best hotel in Lake George.

Overall had a good experience in Lake George. This hotel has an updated pool and beach area. There is a small concession stand that serves a little more than concession stand food, a bar, and a small arcade. The reason I am upset about the toilet not working is after we called maintenance to come we were told by our neighbors that the couple before us had to leave because the toilet was not working. We paid $550 a night and to be in a room with a toilet not working and shower that doesn't drain in not acceptable. I understand things break but this seems to be an ongoing problem when my wife checked us out and and notified the front desk again they didn't seem to care. Pros- Clean Beach/ Pool Clean Beach/ Pool Chairs Small Splash pool Kid Friendly Cons- Small Rooms Poor plumbing Weak Internet

We came with a group of 5 families and everyone had an awesome time. The lake access, beach, and pool were amazing. We came with a group of active pre-teen boys and the kids could always find something to do whether it was volleyball, cornhole, ping pong or swimming. It's a short walk into town and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping. We will definitely be back!

The service was excellent . The beach area is big , they have hot breakfast , hot food in the afternoon , they have 2 areas for parking, if you have 2 cars you can park one car inside and the other one in the outside lot (which is a good option) paddle board and other activities are in the beach area and is just a REALLY GOOD EXPERIENCE. Yes I went there 3 different times in 2020 and I will definitely will come back
