The location can't be beat for a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The TV was old, but the reception was OK. The bathroom was spacious and clean, with more than enough towels, but no place to to put toiletries on the pedestal sink. They need to provide some shelves... More

Older-style motel set at the southern shore of Lake Otsego. Charming hotel in a very charming town. The staff was friendly and very helpful...the restaurant/bar was quaint and convenient and I would not hesitate to stay here again and again.

We booked this hotel in Cooperstown as a part of our vacation out east to NYC and 'Cape Cod. We stayed nine hotel nights on our trip and this one night stay was the most expensive ($200.00/night) with the least amount of amenities. The room had a fresh coat of paint and nice trim, but that was all that was... More

First off it is a motel. Once you get past that you realize the place is all you need. We were there for a concert at the Brewery and did not want to drop $500 at the Odesaga so booked here. Rooms are clean. People were nice. And the breakfast/bar spot has a lovely view of the lake.

We used this hotel because the Otsega was fully booked! Upon checking in I was asked how many in my party? I responded with 3, and the woman said this room was booked for 2 I will have to charge you for an extra person $40.00. I explained to the woman that we weren't even staying the night, we were...

Lakefronthotel, Manager at Lake Front Hotel, responded to this review

I'm so sorry that your experience here at the Lake Front did not met your expectations. You were in fact charged the extra person fee. Our policies are clearly stated and had you made your own reservation your accommodations would have been made accordingly to the number in your party. We do recommend that guests do make their own reservation... More

I have just returned from a stay at the Lake Front Hotel in Cooperstown, NY. We had a fantastic time at the hotel and wanted to do a few pros and cons. PROS: 1. Hotel is located on the Lake and our room had a private balcony with a stunning view of the Lake. 2. Check-in was great. The front... More

There are far better choices for lodging in Cooperstown. The property's website calls itself the Lake Front Hotel, but a hotel it is not; motel is the correct description. The rooms are OK-sized for a motel at $75 to $100 a night, but for an establishment calling itself a hotel, that is charging around $270 a night (with taxes it... More

Unfortunately we did not stay at the hotel, but we did have a great dinner at the restaurant! The view from both hotel and restaurant was great; beautiful Otsego Lake. I have a nice glass of wine and delicious fried clams (as good as Maine's!) Diverse menu choices (ie something for everyone.) Do NOT forget to leave room for dessert!!

A 1950' style hotel, but very acceptable for a visit to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Easy walking distance to all the Cooperstown sights. Park your car hear and avoid all traffic and see everything. Quiet and clean rooms. Good view of lake.
