The Econo Lodge is what you would expect. Nothing fancy. It was clean, no issues there. Roomy. BUT, I did have an issue with the shower. The water temperature would change drastically if someone in another room would flush a toilet, use the water in general. I would either have a blast of freezing water hit me, or scalding.

I had a great stay--you can't beat this location...walk to everything...several restaurants and a cute beach right on the lake across the street. My room was roomy, clean and modern, including a large flat screen t.v. & refrigerator. The air conditioner worked great and was quiet, another plus. Everything in the room was well planned, the flooring and the bed... More

While the rooms were a little outdated they were clean. We booked a suite and they had a large jacuzzi tub, unfortunately we did not use but it looked relaxing. They also have an indoor and outdoor pool. Nice balconies and well maintained grounds. This would be fun for families bc there is enough to do for everyone. It's not... More

Very clean rooms, accommodating staff, and minutes to everything. Walk to the beach although they have a very nice pool. Price for overnight stay was very reasonable compared to the other area hotels. I would highly recommend this motel if you are visiting the Lake George region. You won't be disappointed!

I checked into the Lake George Econolodge with my wife this past Memorial Day weekend. The rate was very reasonable, and the hotel surpassed my expectations in many ways. The guest room was spacious and immaculate. It appeared as if the furnishings had all been recently replaced. The bathroom was spotless and well lit, and the room even had a... More

Great hotel. We only use this hotel when in LG! Very clean! Walking distance / short trolley ride to all town attractions. Very elaborate breakfast / largest selection - all carbs though. Wifi wasn't reliable, but no biggie. Friendly & helpful staff.

A very basic motel with good location nearby all attractions in Lake George. The place isn't fancy which is expected from their prices, but it is not bad for a quick getaway. Parking: Free and easy parking on site. Room: Spacious and clean Location: close to attractions and highway
