It was okay.

Posted 15-Apr-2014
Cons: Smokers bench outside the front door!?! Really? This is a family friendly establishment.
Location: BBQ at Barnsider Restaurant in Lake George was delicious!
The waterpark was packed on Saturday, died off around 6pm which was nice till we had to head off to grab some dinner. Things I would like to see changed: 1. The hotel could have had a dirty laundry bag in the room. This would have been nice to put wet suits in for our ride home. 2. Unfortunately, every time we came to and from our car to the front door the smokers area is a bench right outside the front door and my child has asthma. Wish they could place a gazebo elsewhere that we didn't have to walk by and there always seemed to be someone smoking out there. Disgusting! Overall, the hotel had many amenities for children to enjoy which was nice. We really enjoyed the waterpark Sunday morning!

Stayed at this hotel 6 times...

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Stayed at this hotel 6 times in the last 4 years, for the indoor water park in the winter and Great Escape location in summer. It gets worse every time and we won't stay here again. Either they are understaffed or in need of new training for their employees. The rooms are dirty and very noisy. We waited 40 mins to check in. Train those kids better who work in the water park, please!

Not worth the $350 a night!!

Posted 22-Mar-2014
Pros: The water park, and that's it
Cons: Everything
Location: Great shopping
The room was, ok. Nothing exceptional. Room cleaning, the guys barely made the beds and the coffee we made in the in room coffee maker stayed there the entire time with no refills. Bathroom amenities were practically non existent. No shower caps and just a tiny bottle of shampoo, that's it!! Other places we have stayed at in the area have breakfast included and coffee in the lobby all day, and for 1/3 of the cost!! Not the case here. $8 for our morning Latte's, every morning. And the breakfast buffet.... sigh.. barely any fruit, just apples. At one point I lost my room key, went to reception to get a new one, she asked me for my room number and gave me a new key without even asking for ID, to confirm my validity. So anyone can walk in and get a room key!! I was very disappointed. Will never stay there again.

Great family vacation over March Break.

Posted 17-Mar-2014
Location: The water park is located in Lake George, New York. We did a lot of shopping at the four outlet malls nearby.
This was our third time at the Great Escape Lodge. We went with another family and had a wonderful time. My kids range in age from 8 to 13. My 8 and 11 year olds had a fantastic time and I think the water park is perfect for their age group. My 13 year old enjoyed himself and spent a lot of time on the wave rider however he is on the upper age limit for this water park I would say. Overall the staff are very friendly, the rooms are clean and the water park is well maintained. My kids really liked the Klub Moose Adirondack Themed room that we stayed in. It is basically a wooden room within the hotel room. It had a set of bunk beds and a small TV. They loved having their own TV and could see it perfectly from their bunk beds.

winter time break

Posted 16-Mar-2014
Pros: clean rooms & great water park
Was looking for a short - close by- winter break trip for the Grandchildren. This was just what we needed to help out with this endless winter

Indoor water slide

Posted 15-Mar-2014
We went to The Great Escape because the facilities looked exactly like Great Wolf Lodge. The rooms were smaller, there were less slides and they were smaller as well. All for the same price as Great Wolf Lodge. It does not have the magic. The Kids Klub staff ignored us when we entered the craft area and it seemed clear they did not want to deal with anymore kids. The hotel and parts of the water park were cold. It was difficult to regulate the temperature in our room so it was either uncomfortably hot or cold. Our bed was so close to the wall from having too much furniture in the room that I had to walk sideways to get into the bed. The restaurant was horrible, dirty and overpriced.

Great time was had by the kids

Posted 6-Mar-2014
Location: Great location,near outlets and restaurants.
Lovely new kids club BUT they need to change the activities as they are exactly the same everydayt,,,except for the ones you have to pay for. The hotel rooms need renovations and so does the watermark as some items,I.e. kids slide was old and torn. Restaurants are good.
