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

We stayed overnight this past weekend and were really impressed with the Lake Motel. Our room was immaculate with a wonderful surprise view of Crescent Lake. The grounds are lovely and the owner was very friendly and helpful! Just a short walk (or car ride) into downtown Wolfeboro to the shops, restaurants, and town docks. We will definitely be back!

We've been coming to Wolfeboro for years and never knew about this gem! Extremely nice people, lovely new and clean room, and a gorgeous view! And we could have our dog! We will most definitely be back! Thank you!

I had to stay overnight in Wolfeboro in November without much forewarning. The Lake Motel offered vacancy at the BEST PRICE in town. The manager jumped through hoops to get a room for me (even getting out of bed to make sure I could get into my room after hours). The room itself was comfortable and spacious, offering a wonderful... More

This will be our 17th year of spending our summer vacation at The Lake Motel (TLM). TLM is a great family-friendly vacation spot; our kids were in preschool when we started staying there, and now they're in college. We often see the same families going back there year after year, just like us. It's also the perfect place for family... More

Please ask to see the room first. Ask for the rate in writing: Don't assume you heard it incorrectly. Then get in you car and get the hell out of there. The cons? Clogged sink, black "mold?" around bathtub caulking and a small wall heater. The carpet was worn. The pro? It had a refrigerator - I carried it from... More
