I have to say that before booking the trip, I read Trip Advisor and was skeptical about booking one of the one BR beach suites. Since my two sisters & I booked our stay pretty late, it was one of the only lakefront options available, so I took the chance. My sisters and I arrive on Thursday July 14th and I was pleasantly surprised! The beach suite was actually about 20 steps from the beach and when we opened the door it was TOTALLY clean from top to bottom. The bathroom looked recently renovated (I work in the Design & Construction business for hospitality, so I know a thing or two), the appliances looked a little old, but they all worked! There was a decent couch, a tube TV that worked, and an outdoor table/chairs. From the porch you could see Lake George and it was a very scenic view! The pool was clean, the beach was cute and there were plenty of chairs available if you did not end up at the beach after 1pm! There were grills throughout the grounds, plenty of parking, and the air conditioner cooled off the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen/living room areas. The shower had warm/hot water, enough for 3, 30 minute showers in a row! I will be back again next year, this time I will rent a family cabin earlier and take my whole family along, including the puppies, for a good time! I highly recommend this resort! I second others when they say if you are looking for a five star, full service hotel, Depe Dene is not for you. For those who want a good resort with rustic accomidations that are an authentic Lake George experience, this resort is for you!
