Stayed in a 2 room cottage on a random visit to Weirs Beach, good view and walking distance from the few local attractions that the village offers. Cramped parking and a half inch gap on the bottom of our cabin allowing cool but refreshing air in the floor area. Other than that all else was fine. Reasonable.

My husband & I recently spent 3 days at Half Moon Motel. We had stayed here many years ago with our kids who are now grandparents. You can guess their reaction when we told them where we were staying. For my husband and I it was the best 3 days in several years, so relaxing and I must say we've... More

A group of us stayed at the Half Moon for the 2014 Laconia Bike Week event and rented 3 cabins and 2 hotel rooms. The cabins are showing their age, and the individual bathrooms are very small. Tall people beware when sitting down! The showers pointed at your head and didn't adjust down. However the cabins were clean, dry, and... More

The bathrooms in our cottages are small, but quite modern. They have all been recently renovated. However, the shower heads are fixed. We will now replace the shower heads with adjustable ones. We thank the guest for bringing this issue to our attention. We were perplexed by this guest's complaint regarding the motel kitchen, as we had just placed brand... More

Although it was a rough start, it ended up great. The location is fabulous. Close to everything and easy access to affordable cabs. The customer service was accommodating despite the difficulties that were occurring.

The location of this hotel is great! Walking distance to everything in Weirs beach, which is a boardwalk-type area. The cottages/hotel are a bit dated, but very clean. Front staff was very nice and accomodating.

As the saying goes, it is all about the location. The location of the Half Moon Motel at Weirs Beach could not be better. I could sit on the second floor motel balcony for hours and watch the lake, mountains, tourist train and boat traffic. Other reviewers have mentioned that the facilities and rooms are dated. They are. If you... More

My husband and I stayed at a screened in porch cottage from July 12 to July 18 and we were very satisfied. Cottage was clean and well equipped. Walking distance to everything in Weir's Beach. If you are going to see Nascar, then this place is only 25 minutes away from the track.

Spent a night recently with my son and toddler. We were in upper motel room 16 - highly recommend this room. Surprisingly modern inside an older motel. Very nice end room with shared balcony overlooking the lake. This room has a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker - one of the highlights of our stay was having a light breakfast we... More

We go to Lake Winnipesaukee every year and even vacationed there every summer when I was a child. We have always camped but this time decided to stay in the 'Half Moon' cottages that have been a presence for as long as I can remember. We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. The cabin we stayed in was clean, modern,... More
