Fun fifties decor in a family atmosphere, with newly updated and renovated rooms. Check out our new heated pool and beautiful, secluded patio! We have a lovely green space with tall shade trees and picnic tables perfect for enjoying our free continental breakfast, or a family luncheon when you want a retreat from all the action. Across the street from the Fort William Henry, the Windsor Motel is a great choice for economical, quality lodgings in the hub of Lake George activities and events. We are a one minute walk to all the major amenities and activities in the village. Walk to fabulous, "Million Dollar Beach", all of the villages beautiful manicured parks, great restaurants and hot night-clubs. A five minute drive takes you to one of the largest theme park in the state, "The Great Escape" and her sister park, "Splash Water Kingdom". Also within five minutes is the "Million Dollar Mile" with factory outlets such as Ralph Lauren, Gap, Dansk, and many others to choose from.

This place could not possibly be any worse. I would give it less than a zero rating if I could. It is beyond run down. Straight out of the 1970s. Cinder block walls with poor lighting made you feel like you were in a prison. Roomy are tiny and damp. Shades were broken. Beds were tilted. Moldy and stinky. Bathroom was small and dirty. Owner is also a scam artist. Called in advance for late checkout which he promised. He then backed out on the day of our check out. If it weren’t for my boyfriend, I would have forfeited the money we already spent here and moved to another location. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else!

The good: the location is great. It is right across from Fort William Henry and an easy walk to town. ...that is basically all the good there is. The bad: the rooms are DISGUSTING. You walk in and you can smell the mold and I'm 99 percent sure that they must have had some animal poop in the room we stayed in. No matter how much we aired it out, the smell of animal feces penetrates your sinuses.. There are ants everywhere, so be careful with your little toddlers on the carpet. Speaking of carpet, the carpet needs to be thrown out completely. You dont even want to step on it. The beds are horrible. We spent 4 nights and even my children's backs hurt. The air conditioning cools half the room. They put it in the stupidest location possible. Why would you not air condition the main area of the room? I dont know. Whatever. It's way too hot but go by the bathroom and you'll be nice and chilly. The bathroom is full of mold. The shower and the shower curtain smells like urine (so we decided not to use it). The parking is not good either. You can get into a spot but good luck getting back out. The lighting in the room isnt great. The breakfast consists of bagels, some pastries and fruit. You're better off eating breakfast elsewhere. Basically. Spend the extra money on somewhere you'll actually be able to enjoy. Trust me. If your family didnt have a good night of sleep, your whole trip is gonna be ruined.

The only reason I can give this place a 2/5 is because the staff was super friendly and the location is great. Other than that this place was an utter disappointment. We had lots of creepy crawlers, dirty pool, dirty room, and clogged drains. The pictures we saw on the reviews before we booked must’ve been done via some impressive photoshop work. It was an okay stay as we used it literally only to sleep, but spending any time there other than that I would advise against.

Let me begin this by saying I booked a short 4th of July getaway in late June so there weren’t many options available but looking back on it, I wish I planned more time. I understand everyone jacks up the rates especially for the holiday but for the price paid, the place did all it could. The room was dated (okay so what) but the cinder block walls dated me back to middle school. The room was pretty tight for two even with two beds and a chair and the AC which we kept on for two straight days was tolerable but never really quite “got there” if you know what I mean. The fridge and microwave were an added bonus but the place is no frills. Meaning no ice bucket (see pic as that was just a jug you had to get from the ice machine), one super small shampoo and soap bar. The bathroom which was relatively clean was super tight. Pic of wall is your toilet view (about 5 inches from your face). The outside too was standard motelish but a small table and chairs outside to overlook the parking lot and a small smoking section (aka chairs and tables on mulch). That being said they did have grills there so for a family on a budget it’s a nice touch. The owner was super nice and you can tell he wants to ensure people are served well. The breakfast which i just popped in for a sec is a grab and go but decent amount of options given the expectations. The best positive about the place is its proximity to downtown as it’s almost as good as it gets. Big plus here and the reason why it gets the 3 stars. Plus the wifi was pretty strong. Bottom line, im sure there’s worse places to stay but if you have the time and the money, go elsewhere. Im hoping the owner makes some minor updates but if ya gotta do it, book it. If you don’t then...

Me and my girlfriend cake up for a little getaway vacation, the staff were friendly but the room was not great or comfortable at all, the blankets had yellow and brown stains all over them like they were not washed, also underneath the beds near the rails for the beds were dirty filled wit dirt and full leaves, bugs were flying all over the ceiling. It was a hot day and the a.c unit was on the opposite side of the beds, couldn’t feel it at all. The bathroom was so little you touched the wall, the bathroom sink flooded the bathroom and there were ants everywhere in the bathroom all over the floors from the toilet and sink leaking. We personally will never stay here again and I will make sure to let everyone I know about the vacation we had while hear and show them the pictures we took.

I didn't expect fancy but I did expect what the website said was available. The bed was so hard it was definitely a bargain basement mattress. When you wake up in so much pain the mattress sucks. So let me tell you about the lamps. There were lamps on the bedside tables but no where to plug them in. Why perpetrate a fraud with lamps you can't use. The so called wifi didn't work. The web also said direct dial phones, but there were no phones in the room. And let me tell you about the bathroom. It was so small sitting on the toilet you were almost touching the opposite wall. There was a microwave but in order to use it you had to unplug the air conditioner. There was a portable heater but no where to plug it in. In this day and age with technology there was no outlet available to plug in a charger. This motel is not handicap accessible. It needs updating to the 21 century. NEVER AGAIN.

Loved everything about this motel from the spotless room with very nicely remodeled bathroom (great tile, stylish accessories) to the very pleasant grounds with sparkling clean pool! Great lounge chairs including anti-gravity chairs, fun decor, tables and chairs and the pool is refreshing and clean. Fabulous breakfast!! (Healthy choices which is rare in the continental motel breakfast genre!). Hummus, Green Salad, Bolied eggs, Delicious Bakery Bagels, Fancy slices of breakfast cakes - really a treat! Walkable to everything in Lake George Village. The outside grounds have been carefully planned to maximize the utilization of space with small tables outside each room, BBQ grills and shaded tables. The pool area is filled with fun and funky decor - like the rest of this wonderful property!! Kind and friendly owner who quite clearly loves owning this vintage motel and has updated so much of the property with a modern and stylish vibe!!! Loved it and will be back!!

This was a great spot for my wife and me to stay. You can walk to everything. Right across the street from path down to beach and across from Fort William Henry. The owner Elliot and his staff are fantastic! Very friendly and gave us great recommendations of things to do. One reccomendation was a rodeo. It was our first time to one and only about 10min out of town and great for family. Enjoyed some great restaurants and views from prospect mountain. The reviews are correct! The continental breakfast is the best I've ever had. Definitely recommend and look forward to coming back.

The good: Nice host, breakfast included, clean, great location. The bad: Broken microwave, no mini-fridge (came the second day) super hot weekend with only small window unit, no hair dryer. Supposedly there's wifi but never which we really needed. Must be honest, place needs some work. Ceiling fans would really make it possible to sleep. Lake George is a great town and will be back next year but not to this property.
