The kids wanted to go back. They love the arcades and the pool. It's a really nice little place. The staff is very friendly. If you go the zip line at Gunstock is a must if you like a thrill ride. Absolutely worth the price! The zip line and the Half Moon.

We stayed in a one room cottage. It was clean and the view off the front porch was worth the stay! The swimming pool is very big and beautiful. The location is perfect to walk to anything at Weirs Beach.

We stayed in one of the smaller cottages. It was all that two people needed. The room was clean and the bathroom was great. The shower was a bit small for us but, it did the job. The front porch with chairs was a great place to relax with a beautiful view of the lake. The pool was clean and... More

I would love to give this place a higher rating as I don't have as much of a problem with the quarters as I do with the other people staying there. View was beautiful! We could see fire works on the beach from the porch. Pool and surrounding areas, clean and comfy. Did not get any sleep. Each night there... More

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

We asks our guests to keep quiet between the hours of 10pm and 8am. One large group of guests did not respect our quiet hours during the first night of their stay. If the reviewer had called us that night, we would have dealt with the noise issue right away. However, the reviewer did not let us know until the... More

We stayed for several evenings in the bottom floor of the motel for a wedding party. The room looked like it had stepped out of the seventies. There were several spiders on webs in the bathroom. Our room was better than our friends room on the second floor. There room was entirely paneled. Another of our friends was staying in... More

A great location is the only plus about this place, they lie about it being a heated pool on the website, no way is it a heated pool, thought I was doing the ALS ice bucket challenge after jumping in, rooms are run down, apparently the owner who walks by all day and doesn't bother to say hi or acknowledge...

Stayed at the Half Moon for 4 nights of 2015 motorcycle week. Old outdated room, sad bathroom and wood paneling. Staff was nice, room was "refreshed" daily but it was not worth the jacked up rate for the event. The location was perfect and the deck was great for hanging out. I would stay again based on location only.
