A Real Pleasure
I highly recommend this property. It is brand new. The rooms are beautiful, and clean. The area is full of hotels that are dated, and it was a real joy to stay at a new property with excellent service.
President's weekend in a great hotel!
Family of four stayed here for three nights over President's Day weekend. We had originally rented a two queen bed regular room but just prior to check in I called and asked to be upgraded to a 2 Queen suite room. They did so at no charge!
Check in was a snap and they front desk area was very helpful throughout our stay. Pool area was clean and warm but didn't try the hot tub....not sure what all the soapy bubbles were made of LOL! LOTS of kids howling but my two little ones had a blast. Warm choco chip cookies every afternoon around 6 so plan accordingly. Nice that they have a bar on premises as well. Breakfast was FANTASTIC...hot and different each morning. We were on the first floor and the room was quiet never heard our neighbors or any outside noise. Bedding was nice, pullout sofa solid. I like a very hard mattress and they were a little soft for my tast but no loss of sleep. Bathroom was nice and the room had a small fridge and microwave and both were nice, quiet and new. The heating unit was fine although a little loud at night when it powered on.
Hotel is set back from the street and up a hill...overall new and very very nice. Close to village though you have to drive. Only downside for us was the distance to Gore Mountain...about 35 minutes. But we knew that going in and to be honest would not have changed a thing!
Try the Cherry Tomato restaurant in Queensbury. Really good and about 15-20 minutes away.
For $116 a night on a holiday weekend we could not have been happier. STRONGLY recommend the Hampton Inn Lake George. Would be nice to come back in the summer as well!
This was an excellent hotel. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and well decorated. Don't listen to the review about the pool. It WAS heated and there were plenty of pool towels available.
The staff was definetly the best part of this hotel. They really did everything they could to make us happy and comfortable. They gave us great information for things to do with our kids and places to eat.
The room had a very large, flat screen tv, microwave, small fridge and coffeemaker. The beds were super comfy, with nice sheets and down blankets.
Great white bed, great view, choice location
When I sank into the wonderful king sized bed with classy, white down bedspread and FIVE dreamy pillows I feared I would just sleep all weekend. But when first light revealed a mountainside of peak fall foliage right outside our window, we knew we had found the perfect location to launch leaf-peeping road trips (just off the Northway and about a block from the turnoff to Prospect Mountain and four hours from Manhattan).
THE ROOM: This Inn is so new that it seemed we were the first to use the room. The colors are dark woods and forest greens and golds. A small microwave and a small fridge allow you to warm all those yummy leftovers from the nearby restaurants. There is a desk with ethernet and high-speed Internet connection; a generous array of good-quality bath products and enough towels; a state-of-the-art heating/air-conditioning unit. A large wide screen TV, sofa and coffee table complete the furnishings. We could have used a reading lamp by the couch and a shaving/make-up mirror in the bathroom.
STAFF: The front desk staff was at the caliber of a boutique hotel, even though every room was booked. Employees seemed enthusiastic. When we needed something in the room we got prompt, cheerful service. There were enough luggage carts to serve guests, which really makes a difference.
LOUNGE AREA: A double-sided welcoming fireplace divides the check-in area from the Hampton breakfast area that doubles as a lounge at night. Fresh-baked cookies, apples and bananas were often available. Coffee and teas were available at all times. In the evening, a number of guests congregated to watch the giant TV above the fireplace or to play cards or enjoy delivery pizza at the comfortable tables with club chairs. An unstaffed bar was stocked with glasses, so we bought a bottle of wine at the liquor store a few blocks down the road (there was a terrific selection) and sat around with other guests watching the baseball playoffs.
BREAKFAST INCLUDED: As a low-carber, breakfast was not sufficient for me, since no meat or eggs were served either day. There were cereals, fruit, hot waffles, yogurt cups, bagels and spreads and breads, certainly enough for most people. And there were breakfast places just down the road, including McDonald's.
POOL: All three days we enjoyed the Hampton pool, warm enough and big enough (depending on how many kids were there). Indoor only, it seemed about 30 feet long and 15 or 18 feet wide, to a depth of nearly 5 feet. There was a standard hot tub and clean towels (not quite large enough) in abundance. The exercise room adjacent to the pool area had three machines, all state of the art - a stationery bike, a treadmill and an elliptical - along with a TV and remote control.
Just outside the pool room at the rear of the hotel was a sunny outdoor patio with lounge and Adirondack chairs that faced a woods. At night, it made for peaceful stargazing.
ENVIRONS: Yes, it's worth driving to the top of Prospect Mountain, and Gore Mountain and Fort Ticonderoga are not too far. The trip along Lake George is magnificent and by-way detours through Schroon and Loon lake areas are delightful. We also promised the folks at the Barnsider Smokehouse BBQ, across the road from the Hampton Inn, to mention that not only was their food terrific, but they treated us like absolute royalty as we camped out at the bar to watch the Yankee game.
Fantastic Hampton Inn
Brand new, very clean, great service & located right off the interstate. Very close to Lake George & Great Falls.
Great new hotel - perfect for young families
We thoroughly enjoed the new Hampton Inn. Our room was relatively small, but perfectly adequate for a young family of four. Everything is shining new, which is so nice! A few things in the room seemed out of place with the rest - for example plastic cups, ice bucket, garbage can - just didn't fit the rest of the room which was nicely finished. This did not bother me, just something I noticed!
The service was excellent throughout and the free breakfast was adequate.
We used the indoor pool and jacuzzi which were in excellent condition. Pool is very shallow (between 3 ft and 5 ft deep) which is perfect for my young children. Wish they would provide large towels at the pool, (the ones they provide are too small).
I would definitely stay here again.
Brand new beautiful Hampton Inn. The room is not a suite in the sense of a separate room like an Embassy suites but it was new, clean and very comfortable beds. The staff was friendly & helpful. Nice breakfast included, pool & ot tub. Very good value.
Everything about the property exceeded my expectations by a wide margin. I have spent five times as much per night and not liked my room as much. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was nicer than many I have paid dearly for, and full of more diversity. As if this wasn't enough the hotel doesn't really shine until you compare it to the places around it.
I've stayed in many Hampton Inns and this was by far the best. Rooms were spotless, lobby and breakfast area were beautiful, breakfast was great, the hotel staff was very helpful and always pleasant. I had never been to Lake George before & didnt know were to stay. After reading the reviews of other hotels in the area that were less favorable we booked this one, I'm so glad we did. The Lake area is right down the road and it was easily accessible to alot of places. I would definately stay here again. If your in the area for business or pleasure this is the place to stay.
This is a great new hotel with all the extras. A two minute drive from downtown. Up on a hill with a great adirondack view. Lobby has a fireplace and bar. The rooms come with breakfast including scrambled eggs and hot biscuts which was a nice treat. The service was excellent. The staff was very helpful when we requested a place for dinner. The pool was very clean-but not heated.
Would recommend this Hampton Inn to anyone going to Lake George.

We decided a boat ride would be a great way to see Lake George. Our boat was named Mohican, and gave us a great ride around the lake. The lake is 32 miles long as has lots of history. We were surprised at how populated the lake is with homes and just how popular the lake is for boaters. The state owns numerous islands where you can camp with limited amenities, but you must have a boat as that is the only way to ...
Our drive from Danville, Vermont to Lake George, NY was only 146 miles, but with road construction and traffic it took us 4 hours. We arrived at our campground, King Phillips and got a very nice spot with plenty of grass to walk the dogs.

... is nice, though the load in was a little slow. This venue is cake compared to some of the other ones, so I am not complaining. It is one of a handful that have a balcony, so it is interesting to see. The stage is about average, though the side walls were a bit challenging to put in today.
Oh well, I was just paged to go back out to my camera, I need to get it set for the show.
