My wife and I stayed here over the summer for one full day/night. Or was definitely better than expected given the price. Price is probably the lowest you'll find in the area, but the accommodations were not. The room was clean and usual/typical hotel size. No problems with bathroom. Shower was nice after swimming in the pool which was also...

For what you pay compared to other motels in Lake George, Gentleman Johnny's is a solid motel. I stayed over for a few nights with my wife and we were looking for someplace affordable and clean simply to spend the nights - JG's definitely fit the bill. Very glad I gave this place shot.

Have stayed in more expensive fancier motels in Lake George. Went online a few weeks before our trip and found this place at a really good rate. Had trepidations but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We brought our own towels as the last place I stayed in had really thin, small ones. Again, pleasantly surprised. The towels were clean...

So, this isn't a princess at a pauper rate place. But it is a gem. The bed was good. The room was clean in general and the bathroom was clean in particular. It hasn't had a lot of money spent on keeping up with the joneses. But everything worked. The staff was smiling and particularly kind. The Gentleman blessed me...

We stayed a couple of nights. Although clean, the place is old and dilapidated. The air conditioner did not blow cold air even at the highest setting. The refrigerator was unplugged and it never got cold enough to chill 6 cans of soda. The soda machine took my money, didn't give soda or refund my money. The front desk did...

Gentleman Johnny's has the rustic feel of Old Lake George. It is only 1 1/2 miles from Lake George Village, without the high prices! Though the buildings are of older construction, it was clean and well kept, and very comfortable! The breakfast provided was very simple; bagels or toast with cheese and coffee, but suited me I didn't have opportunity...

Booked this place for a last minute event. It was clean and served the purpose because we didn't spend much time in the room but the bed was comfortable and the we were the only people at the place. It needs to be updated and appears "tired" but with a little love and some investment into the property could be...

This place has definitely been "lived in" but it was clean, comfortable, everything worked fine, and best of all for me, was able to accommodate my family of 6 in one 2-bedroom suite. It's hard to find places that can sleep six, and I am so glad I found Gentleman Johnny's. There was parking right outside the room, a picnic...

Stayed here one night prior to 4 nights at another property and it wasn't a great experience. Everything is old and worn at this property. Beds are hard and covered with very old spreads.

“If I am not mistaken, the odd numbered double bedded rooms (1, 5, 7, and 9) have bathtubs, whereas the even numbered double bedded rooms (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) only have shower stalls. If you have a preference for a room with a tub, it might however be helpful to verify this with the owners. The decor of the double bedded rooms is a little better than in the queen rooms. The queens have dark paneling on the wall (which was still okay), but the doubles are a little "brighter."”
