We stayed at this hotel over the Labor Day Weekend, while the price was right ($98 a night) and they let us stay 2 nights instead of 3, I won't return! This place is perfect for young adults who want to party, its only a mile from the village of Lake George, right on the trolly route and inexpensive. This...

The outside property is well maintained. Our room was on the 2nd floor and apparently that is the smoking section. The balcony is shared by the entire floor so as you walk to the steps to go downstairs you walk by people sitting outside their rooms smoking. If you are a smoker this may not be a problem for you....

The room was ok, although there were little ants in my bathroom climbing on walls and bath tub.. I also didn't like the non privacy feeling with a door that could be easily opened into someone else's room. They don't really provide large towels so people staying there should pack their own! The WiFi sucks so don't depend on it...

Overall nice place. Rooms were clean pool was clean. Walls were a little thin and water temperature in the shower left a lot to be desired. Staff was very friendly. Nice location just outside of the noise of the village but not to far from everything

We have stayed here before about 6-7 yrs ago. Not a bad place as far as motels go. Clean , nice pool. The beds have seen better days. They're really hard. Pillows could use to be replaced too. As there are trees and bushes outside back windows you do see some bugs in the room. Rooms have refrigerator and air...

This place was nearly perfect for a simple 2 night stay. If you're just looking for a nice room to stay in during a stay in the area, Fran Cove is your place to go. Much more affordable than nearly all other motels in the area, has everything except a microwave (didn't even need one anyways), has air conditioners that...

While visiting family in the Lake George, NY area and wanting to have my privacy, I have chosen to stay at the Fran Cove Motel 3 times over the past year. I am very impressed with the consistent quality each time, and at a cost of $50-60/night. It is not the Ritz, but for this price you can't beat it....

Fran Cove is a nice place and that's not something to take for granted in Lake George. Over the past 30 years we have tried at least 15 motels in the area and a lot of them left us wanting for various reasons. Our Fran Cove room was clean and reasonably quiet and located a 15-minute walk from the center...

Clean enough place with a pool, a couple of picnic tables and a charcoal grill. You're not getting the Ritz here, but nice enough. The $1.00 shuttle bus around town stops right in the motel parking lot, but even if you had to walk, it's only about a 20 minute stroll to downtown. Sidewalks the whole way.
