Thank You

We use this blog as a weekly forum to promote the Motel Montreal and the greater Lake George region but we wanted to use this week's post to thank the men and women of the armed forces for their commitment and sacrifice.  These brave souls sacrifice time with family, financial wealth and their own health and safety to keep our country safe and to perpetuate the ideal that is the United States of America.  The members of our armed forces deserve recognition, appreciation and a very heartfelt THANK YOU from us all.  To this end, we posted some links to veteran related charities.  We note that many of these organizations accept donations of time, food, clothing, as well as financial contributions.  If you have the means, we hope that you will find it in your heart to help those that protect our country.  Happy Memorial Day, be safe and may God Bless America.

Happy Victoria Day Weekend

Monday, May 21st, 2012, is Victoria Day in Canada.  For those who don't know (and we didn't until yesterday), Victoria Day celebrates the birth of Queen Victoria (pictured to the left) and it is the first long weekend of the spring/summer season (historic information here).  What better way for our Canadian neighbors to the north to celebrate a Canadian holiday than by leaving the country and coming to the United States for some fun in the sun and outlet shopping?   The weekend weather forecast is absolutely perfect for a drive from Quebec to Lake George and the Motel Montreal is fully operational (we even have a new French to English I-Phone app that we are itching to use).  The pool is up and running, the barbecue grills are ready to go and there is going to be PLENTY of sun for outlet shopping.  Happy Victoria Day to all and we hope to see you soon!

Cinco de Mayo in Lake George!

The 2012 season at the Motel Montreal is officially underway!  We had a busy, but productive winter renovating and improving the hotel and we are very excited to show-off our handy work.  Here is a list of off-season improvements for 2012:

  • Renovated ten poolside rooms (details here and here).
  • Replaced the existing furniture in all of our hotel rooms (pictures here).
  • Installed free WiFi throughout the hotel and rooms.
  • Instituted an environmental sustainability initiative (aka the "Green Initiative").
The Motel Montreal is officially open for business and it looks like the Cinco de Mayo weekend weather will cooperate.  Cinco de Mayo in Lake George can be lots of fun and the hotel is walking distance to the village's Mexican-American dining establishments, so give us a call for a Cinco de Mayo weekend getaway to Lake George!
