People running through the hall and yelling until 3:-00am both nights we were there. Door to hall from our room so loosely fitting that every time a guest slammed their door, our door also rattled. Will never go there again!

My family and I just checked out from The Lake Motel this morning. It was such a great find while passing through Wolfboro. We have nothing but POSITIVE feedback:)When I first walked into the lobby, I found every little detail to be absolutely charming. From the charming decor to the wonderful scenic views of the lake, how impressive. The staff... More

We had never stayed in the Wolfeboro area before, so turned to TripAdvisor to find a good place to stay. Since this was #1 out of 6, we went here. We booked the last room available for a few days, expensive for a motel, but it was high summer after all. We were pleased to find a spacious, comfortable and... More

I have stayed here for one night a couple of times. More recently last month. The first time I went we were shown a room in the old part of the motel that was dated, tired, just plain seedy. Sorry to be that negative but I wouldn't have stayed there if it was $25 per night. We were then shown... More

This hotel was quite a disappointment. It was booked as a gift for us from a family member who didn't have the space in her home for our family during our stay in Wolfeboro. I hope she didn't spend much on it. The room was small, smelly, and dirty. The carpets were filthy, the bathroom was a joke. The oldest... More

I've stayed at different places in Wolfeboro and this is by far the best for the value and amenities. I recently spent a weekend here with five friends and we absolutely loved it. Our rooms were large, clean, and modern. The kitchens had microwaves and small refrigerators, which came in very handy for storing snacks. The bathrooms were spacious and... More

This is a locally owned motel which is designed really for the vacation/leisure traveler. If you think you're booking a room at a Marriott or similar chain hotel/motel that would cater to business people then perhaps it's not for you. I found our king suite in the newer section to be very clean comfortable with doors both facing the lake... More

We lodged here for several days this June. Our room, from the new section, was reasonably priced, well furnished, clean and comfortable. It had both a front and a rear entrance door, the back opening to a view across bordering Crescent Lake. The grounds include a beach on Crescent, are spacious, and sit back from the road far enough for... More

We recently spent a weekend there while attending a family wedding. Our room was clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The grounds were well kept and the view of Crescent Lake was outstanding. Be sure to take advantage of borrowing one of their kayaks or canoes and spend... More

My young son and I arrived for a weekend in Wolfeboro, where I had spent my childhood. A rental house wouldn't work for two days, so we tried the Lake Motel. I would come back in any time. Staff is extremely pleasant, rooms are nice and very clean. Views and access to Crescent Lake would make this a legitimate vacation... More
