Wingate By Wyndham Lake George
Travel Blogs from Lake George
Today we awoke after having one of the best night's sleep the whole time!!
The hotel is beautiful, rooms are large and decor is very well suited to this historic town nestled in the mountains and built around the lake. We went downstairs for breakfast, we are the only guests right now in the hotel, in a few weeks this hotel will be fully booked …
Last night we went into town to do Laundry and stopped by Walmart, girls got shoes for $3 and were very happy.
Laundromat cost $6 so I was not happy about that but we had heaps of it so it had to be done.We had dinner at a Dine In Pizza Hut and it was so cheap, we took heaps of it back with us.
We tried to go to sleep but none of us could …
We left Ballston Spa with lots of tears all around. We have had a wonderful time enjoying the everyday routine of the kids and being able to participate in their activities. It is very hard to leave. We spent the night in Tremont PA which is in the Appalachian Mts. When we woke up the temp was 43 degrees! We drove on down rt 81 toward our destination of Farmington Pa and Fallingwater. This stretch took us longer than anticipated because we had to cross the Appalachian and Alleghany ...
Saratoga Springs, NY, has one of the oldest horse racing courses in the country, and it's right in town along with an equestrian museum and hall of fame. I expect Brenda will trot me right on over there. Coming into town we passed the Spa State Park, featuring mineral springs and "geyser-like spouters." I can **********tain myself. Outside of town there's an Historical Park with a 3200 acre Revolutionary War battlefield. AND, there's a car museum! What a cool town! ...
... heron flew off and the geese waddled away as we continued back to the take-out. Up the rocky bank, I stumbled and worried about getting the boats up, but Otto dragged them most of the way up the bank. We had the extra effort of driving to collect Otto's car as we had transferring my kayak & stuff into his vehicle on the way in. This time I had my keys - or rather Otto was safeguarding them.
We stopped in Lake Luzerne to check out the gorge ...

This hotel started losing points the moment we arrived. The Front Desk Manager appeared to be the sole member of staff on duty (and indeed the only person around) when we got there at about midnight. Yet, with nothing occupying him other than his fingernails, he watched idly as I struggled to the desk with several bags. I wasn't best pleased, to put it mildly, but I was quick to make him see the error of his ways and he checked us in rapidly.
We will never stay at the Wingate Inn again.
There are much better places to stay in Lake George for less the cost.
Staff were unconcerned and uncaring about any issues or questions you may have.
Customer satisfaction was not a concern.
Hotel itself is average.
Go elsewhere in Lake George.....trust us.
Very nice,very clean and new, nice location
very nice, very clean and brand new,nice location,rooms spotlessly clean.Continental breakfast was a nice touch but tended to be overcrowded.overall really enjoyable
We stayed for 5 days earlier this month. We booked a King Suite and were very happy with the cleanliness, spaciousness and comfort of the room. We were there during a complete power failure in the town of Lake George due to an electrical storm, so we had to spend a night without power - it was not pleasant. We asked for and got a room credit for that night. We also had air conditioner problems and had to change rooms, but the hotel is new and maybe they have some kinks to straighten out.
We had booked a week at the Wingate Lake George. Unfortunately, we had to cancel at the last minute as I was scheduled to see a medical specialist at the last minute (long term medical issue). As everyone knows, you have to go when they say. Anyway, the appt was booked for the second day of our vacation so we were planning on going the day after but couldn't use the first two days at the hotel. I did not know that they have a three day cancellation policy so I called the hotel directly to see if there was anyway to cancel it. (I called the day before).They flat out said no and I would be charged $188 (one nights stay). After some discussion I even said to the attendant that "Being Lake Gorge during prime time, you will probably have the room booked tonight". She replied "yes we will". I then asked why they were still charging me if she knows the room will be booked. She just gave the old stand-by "it's the policy". Very understanding. Anyway, I realize that they have a 3 day policy, which is ridiculous in the first place. We have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years and I have never had a three day cancellation policy at any one we have stayed at. I will never book there, just out of principal. Hopefully if you book there, you won't have any issues prior or during. Why am I shocked, customer service is a dead industry now-a-days. Traveller beware.
spent 2 nights here. We had a suite, which was very large, our only complaint being that there was no an ensuite washroom. The front desk staff was very friendly, as was other staff. The hotel is located on the southern fringe of the town, we liked the location since we were away from the hustle and bustle of the center. The water park is right accross the street and you can walk to nearby restaurants. We had a king bed, that was very comfortable. The bedroom had a plasma tv. The washroom was a good size, the only complaint there was no fan. The hotel has 2 pools, a large outdoor and smaller indoor pool. Breakfast is included in the rate, which has everything you need and eggs and bacon/sausage. Our complaint was that at 730 am on Saturday, many of the items were missing and staff was slow in replacing them. Would stay here again.
I stayed at the Wingate Inn at Lake George a few weeks back. This was the first time I went to the area and I had high hopes. Here are a few observations:
- The hotel is located in the so so area of Lake George and is a bit of a walk to the Lake. The other parts of Lake George are much better
- The hotel is brand new but the outdoor pool was not even open when we were there. Ask them before you book
- The license owner is a handyman as well and helped us out once when we had a problem
- The breakfast is truly terrible - they have a pantry they serve the breakfast out of. So be prepared for long lines and microwavable bacon
- This is a corporate chain - so do not expect a small locally owned inn
We had a chance to stay at the Wingate this past weekend, with my family of 7! We needed two rooms side by side (with adjoining door) and they accomodated us with no problem. We had a very nice stay, and the staff were very helpful.
After checking out of a hotel in nearby Glens Falls due to it's awful appearance and smell, we booked the Wingate now by Wyndham. It is everything my boyfriend and I were looking for. It's brand new and you can smell it! 1 outdoor pool, 1 indoor pool and a jacuzzi was what we were looking for and took advantage of. It's definitely a 3 1/2 star at the least! We had a king bed and a couch (pull out) with a small fridge and microwave. The coffee in the room was by Wolfgang puck so it was really good. I will definitely come back and even pay the FULL rate.
Had an opportunity to book one night at this newly opened hotel within walking distance of the heart of Lake George Village. Fortunate enough to get a suite with a wonderfully comfortable king-sized bed. More room than needed in this instance, but plenty of space for a family with the sofa-bed and additional seating. Naturally, everything is new right now, but the quality of materials and furniture will bode well with time, making the rooms seem 'new' long into the future. The decor is a very tasteful Adirondack theme, restful in a nice way. Breakfast was plentiful and varied enough to suit anyone's tastes - great coffee, too! With an indoor pool for inclement weather, and a rather unique outdoor pool soon to be completed, and the outdoor breakfast area beside that pool, it's a great way to start any day. Staff was exceptionally friendly and accomodating. Nothing at all negative with this experience! You get what you pay for . . . The Wingate is a welcome addition to the hotel rooms available in the Lake George region!
