Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites Lake George
Absolutly loved it!!!!!!!
We came to Lake George in February and happened to see a beautiful looking hotel being built, but the sign for the hotel was not on it. My husband and I came for a mini-honeymoon for 3 days in Lake George (it was so nice we ended up staying for 4) Much to our suprise when we booked our trip for July we found out that the hotel that we were staying at was the beautiful new hotel on the hill!
This hotel is BRAND NEW and absolutly gorgeous!!! The lobby has a winding staircase starting from the second floor and a huge chandelier hanging. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. We had the pleasure of meeting Mike (owner/Manager) when we first checked in and he made us feel welcome our whole stay! We originally had a regular room, but decieded to upgrade to the Presidential Suite. WOW!! 2 flat panel TVS, 2 fireplaces, all the amenities of a suite (fridge, microwave) and a huge jaccuzi tub!!!! The bathroom was huge with granite countertops, a beautiful beveled mirror and a seperate shower.
The hotel also has a beautiful indoor pool area that my husband and I took advantage of every afternoon (There are usually no kids in the afternoon, as they are all at the Great Escape, so you can almost have the place to yourselves). The walls are a painted mural of the adirondaks, there is a beautiful hot tub and a waterslide! We definatly made use of the waterslide!
The breakfast was very good, but make sure to get there early as around 8:00-8:30, we were unable to get a table. They have bacon, eggs and make-your-own waffle machines!
The grounds of the hotel were also beautiful. There is a gazeebo in the side yard, a basketball court and junglegym in the back yard as well as a place to have a picninc and bbq!!!
Overall we were very happy with our stay. The rooms were beautiful, the hotel was very clean and new and the little extras (free breakfast, free internet) were a nice touch!
Please don't listen to the negative reviews, trust me this place is the place to stay!
Would rate a full 5 star, the best hotel around!!
We booked presidentail suite for 4 nights- and was pretty weary about it because of previous review, but what a shock- this hotel is PERFECT in every sense! The rooms were beautiful and immaculate-(I usually stay in 4-5 star hotels - so I know what a nice hotel is) let me tell you from all my ritzy hotel stays I enjoyed this the most- the amenities and the staff are amazing. I went with 3 little kids- they couldnt stop loving the pool, playground.. and everything about it. I would reccomend this hotel to everybody- business and pleasure - with all the families and fun going on it still very peacefull escpecially at night- the pool and game room closes and peace and quiet sets in! Staff is wonderful - Mike the manager as helpful as can be along with everyone else.
My husband, 3 children and myself made a last minute reservation here after having to change our vacation plans on short notice. We were a little wary of prior strange reviews. Ignore them, this is a great place to stay in this area. We had a huge two room suite with the biggest bathroom (2 showers) I have ever seen in a hotel. It was a handicapped room which is probably why it was larger than normal. The room was very clean. It had a refrigerator and a microwave as well. The best feature was the swimming pool. It may have been the highlight of the kids trip, they loved it. An outdoor pool as well would have been nice as the weather was beautiful and it was very hot and noisy in the indoor pool area. Though the kids didn't care only Mom. There was also a nice game room with a pool table, air hockey table and video games. The staff was very nice and professional. The hotel was minutes from six flags and maybe 10 minutes from Lake George Village. There are some sorry looking motels in this area and it was great to stay somewhere new and spotless.
Good value - nice hotel
My wife, 2 children and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at this new facility. The front desk was very professional and accommodating. The room was very clean, beds very comfortable, bathroom oversized, TV was an oversized flat panel, room was very quiet. The hotel is close to Six Flags, so a couple miles from the village of Lake George. The family enjoyed the indoor heated pool with slide and hot tub. Would have preferred an outdoor pool as a second option because of the nice weather - but indoor pool was very nice. All-in-all, a very pleasant stay. A couple earlier postings on this hotel are obvious bogus postings by miscreants and deserve no attention. Additional side note: the area experienced a power outage on our third evening - the front desk did the correct and professional thing - allowed us to check out 12 hours early and gave us full credit for the day. Recommend this hotel without reserve!
We first arrived at the Hotel to see what seemed to be a great place to stay. We were excited to see how nice it was compare to all the other hotels in Lake George. The first issue started at check-in when the Manager who was extremely rude ignored us for 20 MINUTES while he told us we would have to wait until lunch is finished! After we finally got to our rooms (which were brand new) we were harassed repeatedly about our 12 month old crying, saying we were causing a "headache". To top off all of this, the brothers who manage the hotel referred to my family and me as "you kind of people" saying "our kind of people have a tendency to cause trouble". With all that being said, I will NEVER go back to this racist ran Hotel that still goes by Jim Crowe laws apparently..........
Definite 4 Star! Super Super Super
My husband myself and two small children were here the last weekend of June. The room was immaculate with a mini (it wasn't mini) fridge, microwave, awesome TV, comfortable bed, oh and continental breakfast (it wasn't continental) coffee, juice, eggs, waffles, toast, sausage and much more.
My kids enjoyed the indoor pool with a cool slide. There was a 1ft wading pool with a water fountain for toddlers. This was no doubt the nicest "comfort suites" I have ever stayed at. They make it really hard for you to want to leave the room. Top notch! Mike the manager was great and gave good suggestions. This hotel is no doubt for people who want to spluge a little and have a soft clean place to land at the end of a long day. If you want just a bargain or a place to sneak your "guests" into go look elsewhere cause there is a hole lotta them.
remember the price includes breakfast! (continental)
Unprofessional, but Clean
We stayed at this Comfort Suites because we were in town for a wedding, and it was a place to stay. We're usually wary about the cleanliness of hotels like this, especially way upstate in the "boonies", but this one was new and it was very clean. Check-in was a little odd - we had to yell "is anyone here?" after waiting some time at the counter (5 -10 minutes). The room was perfectly fine, although "suite" is a bit of an over-statement.
The staff is a little strange. One evening, we asked for a recommendation for a good local place to have breakfast, and one of the yahoos working their started raving about this place called "Poopy's". He said it's where all the locals go, and that his twin brother, who would be working at the front desk in the morning, would give us directions. He also made a fake phone call to make sure Poopy's would be open. It was obvious that the other 2 people at the front desk had never heard of this place, so we knew he was lying, but just to be sure we did a Google search for Poopy's and found nothing. Maybe that's how mountain-people have fun with visitors? Not really sure, but it's not very professional, even for a place like this. Considering the hotel might not exist it if weren't for tourists from places like NYC and Boston, they should choose their staff more carefully.
Still, as long as I just needed a place to stay and wasn't actually on a vacation, I'd probably stay here again.
Worst Experience Ever!
I'm a Police officer in NYC and a soldier who served in Iraq with the Army Reserves. and never felt so unwelcomed at a hotel on a Family Vacation. This is a brand new hotel owned and ran by to two brothers. Once a year, every year my family gets togather for a boating weekend in Lake George. We were excited about staying at a new hotel from the Comfort Suites chain. The two owners made it clear to us that they didn't "spend 8.9 million on this hotel so people from NYC can lower its value." Some examples of their service: Being followed through out the hotel, Questioned why we need more towels, Being accused of loud noise during times when we were fast asleep, and not present. We planned to stay two nights but made arrangements with the owners to refund us for the second night and we went home. He said in closing "This hotel is not for people from southern New York." After this horrible and very unusual experience I have no desire to visit Lake George ever again.
I just spent the weekend (6/22-6/24) there with my wife and 2 kids and it was a pleasant surprise. It was a last minute getaway and I booked the room for $150/night on the same day I arrived.
It was our first time at Lake George and I usually stay at "moderate" hotel chains like Sheraton or Marriott. Lake George doesn't seem to have a lot of those big chain hotels, but instead, it is a motel paradise. I don't want to sound snobbish, but I prefer the larger hotel chains because they tend to be cleaner and nicer.
However, this Comfort Suites is brand new - the front desk told me it was only 1 month old. The rooms are not what I think of as a typical suite, but still spacious enough (it has a mini fridge, microwave, and sofa, but no sink, stove, or dining table. Everything was new and clean and the beds were fresh and very comfortable. The t.v. had a lot of channels which was nice.
They had a small, but nice pool - it was indoor and had a spacious hot tub, a separate toddler section, and one of those twisty slides. The breakfast was a step up from your traditional continental breakfast. They had a waffle machine and always had a hot "egg" dish and breakfast meat, along with your traditional continental fare. It was more than plenty for a quick breakfast. I think they underestimated its popularity as there was always a shortage of seating.
The staff was one of the the friendlier ones I'd ever seen and helped make the stay quite relaxing. If you have a family with kids (and there were a fair amount there), this place is excellent. Lake George is a very relaxing, slow paced area with fresh air and beautiful scenery all around.
Our other favorites at Lake George:
Fort William Henry - educational and fun
Minnie-Ha-Ha paddleboat - cruise Lake George (her sister boat has dinner and lunch cruises)
Six Flags Great Escape - kids
JC Montana - good food, friendly staff, and good kids menu in Lake George Village
Loved Comfort Suites
This brand new motel is a great place to stay. They have a wonderful indoor pool complex that even has a cute kiddy pool with a fountain for little ones to play in. The slide is great. It's a mini version of the ones you pay a lot of money for. The room was brand new -- so excellent. Bed was wonderful. There is a hi def flat screen tv. We had a room with a fireplace -- just push a button, and a whirpool tub. There is a good size fridge and microwave. Free breakfast was great -- omelets, bacon, bagels, make your own waffles.
Nice young man at the desk who offered all sorts of suggestions for things to do.
Only two things missing -- a chair at the desk -- it's truly brand new, so that might be coming. There is a nice easy chair and a sofa in each room. And no outdoor pool. But if you are going to Great Escape and do the water stuff, or to the beach -- you don't need it.
This is one of the nicest places I've stayed and we travel all over the country.
There are so many places getting seedy but still expensive in Lake George. I'd recommend this to everyone.

There was a company doing a new ad for the boat company using a drone. It was cool to see how far they could fly it out away from the boat and video the surroundings. Who knows we maybe in the ad!!
We really enjoyed our boat ride of almost 3 hours and it was a great way to see what Lake George is all about!!
Tomorrow is a hike of about 4 miles up Prospect Mountain. Should be fun!!
