I went to Long Lake with a girlfriend for the weekend. The Shamrock is a basic motel yet very clean and comfortable. They have done a nice job updating the rooms. The rooms have been freshly painted and the bathrooms have new tile in them. The room and grounds are very clean. The staff was helpful, friendly and very accommodating....

My family and I have been staying at the Shamrock motel for about 4 years. We are going back next week again. Every stay is very enjoyable and the owners are very welcoming. The cottages are nice and pretty clean. The porches are nice and most of the cottages have an amazing view of Long Lake. We always enjoy our...

We have been staying at The Shamrock for several years now and it just keeps getting better and better. You could not ask for more accommodating and lovely proprietors - Tim and Beate. They go above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant one. The cabins are spotlessly clean, and if you need something you have only to ask....

We have now stayed at Motel Long Lake, Sandy Point, and Shamrock. POSITIVES: The efficiency unit at Shamrock was spacious and mostly clean (some hair in the bathtub). Host was very friendly on our arrival and made us feel most welcome. Check in was quick and efficient. Beach is lovely. We chose Shamrock so we could walk to Owl's Head...

Let me start this review by saying 1. the cottages are clean, pleasant, 80's decor. 2. if you are like me, you do not read all the small print on the "contract" or read each of the signs in the office nor read all the small signs (and I mean small) in the cabin itself. 3. I have traveled through...

Just back from a perfect repeat visit to the Shamrock in Long Lake, NY. In both our stays, we have found the cabins comfortable, airy, well-stocked, and well maintained. All have great views of beautiful Long Lake, especially at sunset. Close to great hikes and paddling locales, the Shamrock is great for families, couples, or groups of friends. We especially...

We have stayed at the motel for a few vacations. The owners have always been extremely accommodating and greeting their guests like family. The room was very pleasant, clean, and had all that we needed for our vacation. Shamrock Motel is a good place to choose for a vacation spot. There are lots of activities to have fun with on...

My family have been staying here on and off for 25+ years. It is simple, clean, nice rooms, nothing fancy in a place where fancy is not needed. Spend the days out and about in and around Long Lake... a wonderful little town right in the middle of the Adirondacks.... walk the Northville Placid Trail, rent a boat at the...

Motel staff was friendly, room and bathroom clean, room large, nice view of Long Lake. No step entrance, small bathroom with walk in shower only with low step -no grab bars, satellite TV, coffee maker, warm blankets and clean sheets, bed seemed shorter than normal. Good basic motel. Would definitely stay again.
