We stayed October 1 and 2 with friends. We were in town seeking foliage and time with old friends. The owner was very accomodating and friendly. The room was simple, but very clean. Upon entering I smelled the subtle smell of bleach and pure cleanliness! The decor is dated, but comfortable. The outside area is also, clean and well kept.... More

Stayed in August! Called around for availability and prices and Diane was friendly and the price was great for the area! Rooms were basic, but clean! Shower was clean, beds were standard! Nothing ritzy, but we didn't expect it based on the price! There was a fridge though! The A/C filer could be cleaned and would probably run more efficiently,... More

In Old Forge, I have never been disappointed when staying at the Blue Spruce Motel. The owner is friendly, rooms are clean, and they have a pool. Not upscale, expensive lodging, but a comfortable, clean place to stay at a very reasonable price.

I like the management at Blue Spruce Motel, they make you feel at home. We stayed for a few days to hike the Adirondacks during peak season, having no issue getting a room 2 weeks ahead of time. The rooms are tidy and the wi-fi was a plus. We will come back, again.

We stayed here out of necessity after our other plans fell through - I am actually glad our other plans failed! The staff was so friendly, the location wonderful and most important the room was SPOTLESS. We walked to dinner and slept great. We will be returning this summer.

Had we been charged $100 I would have been satisfied. In no way does the room we stayed in warrant a $145 price tag. (Outdated and the very definition of no frills). On positive, room was clean( though remnants of smoking lingered) and staff friendly. Have been vacationing in ADK for last 45 years and like to support local businesses... More

So sorry to hear your trip was not up to your expectations. I personally went into your room prior to your stay to turn up the heat and make sure the extra towels were in the for your extra guests. . We do charge an extra $10 per extra person over the age of 12 for more than 2 adults... More
