This is only a review of the motel. We stayed 2 nights and found the staff to be welcoming and warm. The motel office is at the restaurant. The room needs updating for sure but was clean. There is some charm in the decor, and I can visualize how it used to be. The room could use a new carpet,... More

Jasmina and her staff always make you feel welcome when enjoying the appetizing dishes here. Their garlic/olive oil dip is delicious with their rolls to start off with. We nearly always have the clams appetizer that goes so well with the bread and dipping. (Yum!) Although many folks love the shrimp Lorenzo (named for the chef and husband of Jasmina),... More

Food here is excellent. It's a step up from other restaurants in Schroon Lake, but well worth going to.

Italian cuisine at its best. A little pricey but well worth it. Get there early, the place fills up fast around 7:00 PM. There is a nice bar and a decent wine list to compliment an extensive menu. The servers were attentive and helpful and our entrees, veal Drake and Shrimp Scampi were fantastic. Highly recommended!

The rooms in this motel are very old and not well kept! I remember this motel being one of the best in Schroon Lake and it is so sad to see it go down hill

One time the drake family owned this motel, along with other business in town. Now I think that they lease the place out to whoever each season. Last year we stayed in the motel and the rooms defiantly are showing their age. The motel needs sprucing up, painted more comfortable beds and outdoor furniture. Someone ate lunch on a picnic...

Drakes is a wonderful restaurant with a small town atmosphere. I agree with other locals that their pasta and sauce are excellent. I recommend the Italian salmon which is always done perfectly and melts in your mouth. The staff is friendly and the service is great. You can't go wrong!

Drake's going under new management has been an immense improvement not only in food, but also in customer service. Now a restaurant ran by family that makes you feel like family. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Drake's is the perfect place for all sorts of occasions. The atmosphere is appropriate for a date, buisness meeting, or having dinner... More
