My husband and I stayed here on our way to Wilmington. The place is clean and reasonable. The rooms are dated but everything works. They have coffee in the morning for the guests which is nice. It is a great location because it is away from the hectic downtown core but still within walking distance to it....no struggles to park.

First time to Lake George and a brief stay of one night. Usually I do not stay in motels, but gave this one a try for a brief visit. Appeared relatively clean and neat for an older accommodation. Staff was excellent and location was a slight, but good, distance away from all the busyness of Lake George main street. Pool...

Our family of 3 had a very pleasant 4 night stay at Fran Cove through the 4th of July holiday. We arrived late/early in the morning on a drive from Atlanta, but arrangements had been made with Linda to get us into our room with a very minimum of fuss. Room was very, very clean, and surprisingly quiet with the...

We have been staying at the Francove for 5-6 years now during Americade week. Tim and Linda always go above and beyond to make our stay great. This year I mentioned to Tim that the a/c unit wasn't working but don't worry about it the projected weather for the rest of the week wasn't showing a need for it. When...

We have stayed here a few times and it an excellent place. The service is exceptional and the owners go out of their way for you. It is nice as it is the last stop on the Trolley so getting into the village is easy.

We just drove to Lake George for the weekend. We had plans somewhere else on Sunday. Just wanted to get a headstart to the weekend. We made reservation when we arrived at 8pm. Room was decent and clean. Exactly what we needed for that one night. About 3 mins from village. Surrounding looked very nice. From our window there was...

Very rude male owner, accused me of breaking a TV, they are free standing not secure and it was fine when I left, I'm sure it was the maid. Typical type owner for an off the lake type place. Stay on the Lake if your making the effort to enjoy Lake George.

Our stay was extremely nice. The motel was neat and clean, and you can tell the owners take pride in their property. Only complaints and they are minor, we left early in the morning befor sunrise and there was no lighting for stairs. This could be a safety hazard. The only other issue was smoking, its not allowed in rooms...

We stayed 2 nights in Unit 5. This unit is located in the older section and we were able to park right outside the door. The room was large with a comfortable king bed; the bathroom had been updated; the air conditioner worked well but there was the opportunity to open the windows. The owners are very friendly and accommodating....

We stay at the Cove every year for Americade, and whenever else we're in the area. Tim and Linda always treat us like family. This is an older family-owned motel but everything is kept in great shape, is very clean, and they're always updating something! They're located just north of the village and are on the trolley route.
