Lake George Motels
For someone outside North America, a motel is an all-American classic, like bread & cheese is a French classic. Small, one or two storey high, basic accommodation, door that opens on a parking. You’ll find plenty in Lake George! Don’t expect anything luxurious, but in most places you’ll find a decent, affordable and comfortable accommodation.
The motels in Lake George village are mostly located on the northern part of the main street. While you might not be right in the middle of the action, from there you can still reach the village center by foot within a short few minutes. Most Restaurants, bars and beaches will be within a 5 to 15 minutes walk.
Most of them will have a pool, free parking and sometimes a barbecue area to lower the cost of your Lake George vacations. Prices vary greatly depending on the time of the year - all accommodations will become rather pricey during the peak season – but outside high season, you can find a room for two for under 70$.

To be 100% honest, if you go in Lake George during the busiest of time, you may find that prices are high for a motel with mostly basic accommodations. It is a popular destination! Avoid peak times and you'll be fine. In short, if you stay out of Lake George during those times - for example, a week-end in July... - you'll find a well-located accommodation of reasonable quality for a good price.
Motels are my favorite mean of accommodation when travelling in the USA. They are "cheap" and provide exactly what I need : a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom, space and preferably a fridge.

The Travelodge is located a bit far south of the center of the village. You will find restaurants close-by, but you will have to drive to go to more central attractions. Reviews lately are not that good. A fresh coat of paint may be necessary here.
They accept pets and offer smoking room, something most motels won't.E
The Sundowner Motel is a few steps from the Lake on a cute downhill street. Close enough to action, you will have to walk a little to get to most attractions and restaurants.
It has excellent reviews and is worth considering! The Sundowner motel has also won the TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence 2014.FG
The Lido motel generally has good reviews, but it seems like it could use some updating. While it still seems like a good choice due its cleanliness and location, do not except an recent decoration in your room.
Since it is located on street off the main street, it may be quieter than most motels. All in all, seems like a good choice if the price is right.H
The Studio motel is located on another part of the village, close to the beaches, about a mile off the main road. Reviews are normally good, except some that refers to the quality of the mattresses.
Still seems like a good place to try, if only for the location that sets it apart from the other motels.I

The Nordick's motel Lake George is located a bit farther from the main street than some motels, on a quieter street.
