Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Resort Lake George
Did not like the Holiday Inn of Lake George
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Lake George Turf August, 2004 and found it to be a great disappointment. The room was way too small to accomodate our family of four and certainly did not deserve the price tag of over $200.00 per night. Barely slept a wink in the uncomfortable beds. The management was sympathatic, but only changed our room the last night of the stay, even though the larger room was requested upon making the reservations. While close to the village, not worth the price and I would not recommend this overpriced hotel, at all.
The Only Place to stay in Lake George
We have stayed at The Sagamore, and decided to try the Holiday Inn Lake George to be in the heart of Lake George Village....extremely surprised and completely happy with the experience at this Holiday Inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The view of the lake can't be beat especially when the hotel is not on the Lake. The rooms were beautiful and clean, chairs and tables on the patio for each room if you are lake view, the beds and pillows comfortable, clean and nice pool inside and outside, mini-golf to keep the kids occupied, game room, work-out room, and pool table to keep everyone busy. Highly recommended hotel, worth the price if you want a full service hotel.
10 Years Worth of Quality Stays
To say that this hotel is the BEST hotel in Lake George would be an understatement. Myself and my family have been staying at the Holiday Inn Lake George for over 10 years, and we wouldn't have it any other way. The location is great, walking distance to lake george village, the lake itself, food, ice cream....yet NOT in the middle of all the congestion and crowds. The view from the balcony rooms is priceless, overlooking the pool and the lake itself. The cleanliness is top notch, the rooms feel like they are WORTH the $200+ a night that you will pay, the pools are brand new and clean, the in hotel restaraunt is amazing as well. I can't say enough for this hotel, or this vacation spot. It's a joy, and I will be visiting Lake George and staying at the Holiday Inn for years to come. You CAN'T make a mistake with this hotel. Enjoy!!!
Great hotel with friendly staff, nice facilities and good restaurant.
Clean rooms,helpfull staff,wonderful indoor and outdoor pools.Overall an excellent experience,will go back!
Holiday Inn Turf - A Great Place to Stay
The Holiday Inn is a great place for families to stay. They have a beautiful heated outdoor pool as well as a large indoor pool. The indoor pool was a great plus because the weather wasn't favorable for the outdoor pool and it is also open until 10 p.m., so my children were still able to swim at their choosing. They also have mini refridgerators in the room which helps when you have children and Nintendo-(for a fee). The view from the Lakeview rooms was beautiful. You can see the moutains as well as the lake. Also a big plus was the private balcony. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast was a great bargain because kids eat free and the breakfasts were pretty good. I didn't care too much for the dinners. I found them to be a bit pricey and not very good.The room was a bit pricey at the Holiday Inn but well worth it. I spent $156.00 a night once at the Surfside on the Lake and had the worst time ever. They had the biggest spiders I had ever seen on the outside door every night. There were spiders in the room. The first night I was there, I pulled the covers down to find a spider crawling in the bed. Every morning when we woke up, the bed sheets weren't on the bed anymore. They would be somewhere off to the side.The downside for us was that The Holiday Inn is a little bit of a walk to the village and not a very safe walk. There were no side walks to walk on. So we had to drive into town and pay for parking. But overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay there again.
Loved the Holiday InnTurf
We decided to pick a hotel chain for consistency of service and were
not disappointed. Every request we made, they honored. The room size
was adequate for the 5 of us - 2 queen beds, and we put our 6 yr old on
2 comfortable chairs placed together. They gave us as many pillows and
blankets as we needed and even made the 6 yr old bedding for us without
being asked. Our rooms overlooked the pool with sliding glass doors,
which was very convenient. The bathroom was small for a family of 5 and
had no lock, so there was no privacy for us at all. The rooms were
nicely maintained and comfortable.Kids ate free at all meals which we
tried. Breakfast was worth it, but dinner meals were pricey for adults
and food was substandard. Upon mentioning our dissatisfaction with
dinner, they promptly removed the adult order from the bill. Service
was slow in the dining room because they were training new servers at
the beginning of the summer season, but they were extremely courteous
and tried hard to please.The front desk was little help in giving
advice and directions so we went to the chamber of commerce just down
the road for tourist info.The swimming pool was heated and very warm,
almost like a hottub. It was a good size. They have a kiddy wading pool
and indoor pool as well. There is also a modern mini playground next to
the pool.We will definitely return next year!
RUDE, LYING, OBNOXIOUS staff
I was planning a trip to Lake George for Memorial Day weekend. After looking at this site, I decided to stay at the Holiday Inn. I called for information - not to make a reservation - and the woman on the phone told me that I should go ahead and make the reservation, even if I wasn't sure because "it could be cancelled up to 6pm on the day of arrival". 2 days before my planned arrival my companion was unable to go so I tried to cancel the reservation. At this time I was told that there was a 72 hour cancellation policy and I was going to be charged for my stay even if I couldn't make it. She was cold, rude, and obnoxious! I asked if I could reschedule and was told that I could not! They LIED and were EXTREMELY uncooperative. I even had someone else call and ask what the cancellation policy was and they told them it was 6pm day of arrival as well! Basically, they lied so that they could get me to make a reservation and then they lied so that they could keep my money! I do a lot of traveling and have never before felt so cheated by a hotel. AVOID THE HOLIDAY INN LAKE GEORGE AT ALL COSTS!!!!
Nicest hotel in lake george village
We loved this hotel! After staying at several other local small motels (old-style musty smelling rooms, limited facilities, etc.,) we stayed at the Holiday Inn Turf. The room was recently renovated overlooking the newly built outdoor pool. Inside you will find an indoor pool/sauna, restaurant, gift shop. The hotel sits on a hill overlooking lake george. The rooms were spotless and we'd definitely return again.
Dream Come True
We have been vacationing at The Holiday Inn Turf for years and it just keeps getting better. There is no better view of the lake anywhere, the rooms are clean and beautiful and the staff is exceptional. We have never had a bad experience and we gladly recommend this hotel as the only place to stay in Lake George.

Today we mostly drove across New York and into the popular Adirondack region. Along the way we saw everything from turkeys with chicks to deer along the road. Not sure where we were headed, we looked up white water rafting and plugged an outfitters address in the GPS. Many hours and windy roads later we meet Rebecca, the owner of ...
... the town in the evening. The kids enjoyed the gelato. We stopped at an outdoor bar named Gaffney's for a drink and snack. We sat amongst the outdoor lights and played several rousing games of UNO-my favorite family time of the dar. A quick room change (due to a street level window that wouldn't close) took us to a more spacious room. We really enjoyed our "stop over" and would love to come back during horse and music ...
... shot which did not work out well as there was construction and most of the area was blocked off for parking and I did not want to pay at the public lot to take one picture so we wasted some time there and then the drive up the mountain on top of it. The total drive set us back a few hours though beyond when I expected to leave. We had to pick up Jym at the airport in Harrisburg ...
... moving in on us so we hastened our step and got back on the road, now in New York, heading down 9N all the way down the length of Lake George. There were relatively few actual viewpoints although you are literally driving right next to the lake on one side and the mountains on the other. It was quite a unique drive.
We finally arrived in Lake George. I had not booked a hotel and we decided to stop for something to eat although for some reason ...

Oh, and during the French and Indian war some Native Americans went haywire after defeating the British and began massacring ...
