We have stayed here many times over the years both winter and summer Stayed here as a child even (won't tell you how long ago that was). It's little changed but that's part of its charm. It's retro with a newer indoor pool. The breakfast is...well, skip the breakfast and go to one of the village restaurants. It's expensive because...

Stayed here over the holiday weekend and as usual had a wonderful time. Some of the rooms on the lower level have been remodeled and are absolutely gorgeous! Rooms on the upper level have been updated a couple of years ago and are very comfortable. Rates are very reasonable and the view is to die for. Awesome front row seats...

As a kid, my friends and I would backpack into the woods and camp for the weekend. The difference between tenting and the Forge Motel is at least the motel has indoor plumbing. To be honest, this was my second stay at the Forge, so I have no one to blame for this than myself. This is an old, outdated...

We do advertise that we have a free continental breakfast which is exactly what we offer. We have bagels, danish, muffins, yogurt, fresh bananas, fruit cups, hot tea, hot chocolate, orange and apple...

We just returned from a quick overnight to the area. The Forge accepts dogs and is located right in the center of town. We had a double queen room. Our room had all new carpet, newer A/C unit and new queen beds. Bathroom clean and bright. The views of Old Forge Pond were wonderful. There was a concert on the...

Every room has a lake view and is steps from downtown Old Forge and beach. Love the rustic style of the great room:lobby with indoor pool and Patio again overlooking lake. Rooms decent with glass patio door with lake view and a small patio area with Airondack chairs.

My family have always wanted to go to the waterpark in Old Forge, NY, so we decided to do it and bring the dog! The Forge Motel was the only one who would take dogs, and it was worth it! But note, it's a dated motel. But for the price, do it! We had a room with a great view...

We love this Motel. Rooms are large and clean. Breakfast is perfect. Location is the best. You park your car and never really need it again until you leave. Walk to everything...Water park, restaurants, movies, evening cocktails, the lake. This was the most relaxed vacation I have ever taken. You can sit out on your patio and watch your children...

Recently stayed at the Forge Motel, was pleasantly surprised with the view and location, just a short walk to the shops and eateries in town. Check-in was quick and lobby was very nice, overlooking the heated indoor pool. Beds were very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake just outside our patio door. Very good value for...
