This hotel has stunning lake views and super friendly and helpful staff. Although the rooms were dated, they were clean. My kids loved running up and down the lawn and really enjoyed the property. It's about a 5 min ride to Cooperstown downtown area so it is pretty well situated. All in all, although this is not a 5 star... More

The cabin-style rooms could probably use a little upgrading, but it was a good value, at the off-season (pre-Memorial Day) rate. They will read you their refund policy on the phone. It's fair, and you should listen.

Nothing but the highest praise for Bob Ghegan and his staff at the Lake View Motel in Cooperstown NY. Stayed there for 5 days while attending our granddaughters wedding. Before this trip we have taken at least a dozen round trips between NY and Arkansas and the rooms were the cleanest of any place we ever stood at. And the... More

Right on the lake, with superb views this place kind of surprised us. We arrived a little early, but the helpful staff managed to check us in. The room was bright and clean, and the beds comfortable. Everything worked-shower, wifi, lights, tv. Couldn't fault it.

Bob was the best helping us from the time we checked in to the day we left. The cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. It's not the most luxurious as down the rode. We had the best time there all the Baseball players families stayed. Great for the dreams Park tournament not that far away a little drive but... More

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.

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
