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

We stayed here before and will stay again! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location and view. The cottages may be old but they do try to keep them up well. The pool was very clean. We changed our schedule and added a day at the last minute and Kim in the office was very accommodating.

Clean, great location, great for the family. RIGHT near all the happenings in Weirs... The beach, the arcades, etc. Loved the atmosphere of the Weirs!! Kids had a great time. Would definitely return. Great breakfast in Laconia.. Donna Jean's Diner. Get the Benedict. Go carts up the road were a blast.

My husband and I have never stayed on Weirs Beach and really weren't sure if we picked the right place to stay. Well I must say we were very pleased when we walked thru our motel room door. The room was spacious, very clean, updated and the large size refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker were a plus. Our room was... More

We stayed at the Half Moon June 29 - July 3, 2014. We had a very good experience and will definately stay again if in the area. We stayed in cottage number 6 with a screened in porch. The view was wonderful and it was very relaxing. Everything was within walking distance. The office staff (Kim) was very nice and... More

We stayed in the upper tier cottages behind the motel. They are separate buildings so they are quite. The room was clean with newer carpet and flooring in the bathroom. Very clean. The pool is clean and large and the kids had a great time. Walk to the beach. The family that owns the motel/cottages also owns the arcades, bumper... More

Stayed for 2 nights on the July 4th weekend in 2014. Cottage was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Shower was strong with a good supply of hot water. The staff was helpful and walked around asking people if they needed extra towels or anything. Location was very good, and the pool was cleaned and maintained daily. Also, in... More

We stayed here for four nights over 4th of July weekend in one of the shared balcony cottages. For the money you pay, you get your dollars worth. It really is the closest lodging to the beach, restaurants, and activities. The pool is gorgeous, but the cottages could use a little TLC. If we go again, we will stay in... More

tower28, Owner at Half Moon Motel & Cottages, responded to this review

Our motel rooms receive daily maid service; our cottages receive maid service twice a week. All of our units, both motel rooms and cottages, receive daily towel service. Our housekeeping staff checks every day with our cottage guests to see if they need towels or anything else. We're sorry this guest had to wait for towels. A call to our... More
