We found bugs in the jelly container. And the place as soon as you walk in the place the smell of mold and mildew hit you in the face. We had to leave couldn't eat there.

Breakfast was good, salad bar was small. Last remaining Hojo so worth going to. Easy access on Route 9.

I grew up in Little Neck, LI with a Howard Johnson's Restaurant on our corner. I remember the ice cream and the fried clams. This Lake George location is the last of the chain, and I'm so glad it hasn't gone the way of so...More

Honestly, I had the clams and they were good, but they were the only good entree among 3 of us. They were very expensive, $17. The place is really old and not renovated at all. You're better off going elsewhere. It's... More
