Lucas, thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are quite happy you found much to your satisfaction and enjoyed your time with us. At times, our location at the lake combined with some rainy weather can cause havoc with some few rooms with a musty odor which we do everything to combat. We love the lake... More

We had a 2 double bed room at the back of the property (you have to take a side road to get to the parking lot). The room was large, clean, and quiet. The mattresses were very comfortable, but the boxes squeaked loudly whenever you moved! It would wake up our infant every time. The staff was very friendly and... More

I can't wait to go back to Lake View in the summer. This is an extremely unpretentious place that is family-friendly (unfortunately, not dog-friendly). What a view of the lake!!! Yes, Route 80 does separate the living space from the dock and waterfront, but that is pretty common on Lake Otsego. As for the room, you get what you get:... More

I was so encouraged when I booked this room, and was so disappointed in the end. The picture online looking up at the motel is so misleading since it does not show the well traveled road that runs right through the center of it! The hotel sits up on the hill, then there's the road, then there's the lake. And... More

We were visiting Cooperstown for the first time and were looking for a nice family style hotel/motel to visit. We couldn't have made a better choice in Cooperstown. The Lake View is true to its name; it offers a beautiful, scenic view of the lake. It was like going back into the 1960's at a small resort type hotel. It... More

This motel is across the street from Lake Otsego and provides numerous places to sit and view the gorgeous lake. Rooms here are somewhat inconsistent in what they offer. Our first room had a shower - no tub; no hangers, no curtain on the bathroom window (which faced a wooded area), no hair dryer.. Furnishings were worn. There was a... More

Sue, first we want to thank you fro your comments. Guest feedback is the fuel for continued improvement. From time to time when we experience more than usual rain combined with our lake location some rooms can, unfortunately, have a musty sense. We work hard at preventing this but occasionally it cannot be avoided. We are happy we were able... More

The Lake View Motel was a lovely experience. The front desk manager was very helpful, suggesting places to eat and filling us in on the history of the area. The room was clean and there were plenty of towels. We visited at the end of the season, so it was rather quiet. We walked down to the little beach area,... More
