My husband and I traveled to Cooperstown for a little getaway and to specifically visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. We did not want to stay right in town so we were fortunate enough to have found out about the Lake View Motel and booked our stay there. It exceeded our expectations! From the staff in the office, the cleaniness... More

First, it should be noted that the name is Lake View, not lakefront. There is a road separating the motel from the actual lake. We stayed in unit 1 thinking we would be right next to the lake, but alas that was not the case. In fact, we were right next to the road. Next time, and there will be... More

The motel has a gorgeous view of the lake and the staff is very friendly. The room is about average. The headboard loose and mattress just OK. The price is right and the drive there is pretty, especially during the fall season. For the price it gets 4 stars, if more expensive would have to rate a little lower. The... More

Front desk very friendly at check in. We were in town to spend the day at HOF and downtown Cooperstown. The room was clean, but the bed was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and in need of replacement. The next time in town I will book earlier and hopefully find a better quality room in the area.

Wayne, We are very upset to learn your visit was poor as you found the bed uncomfortable.You were in room 35 on our hilltop property. A check of the records showed me the mattresses in the room were last replaced in 2013 and are in good order. We also checked the box spring to see if a problem existed since... More

Truth be told, we tried to book a hotel/inn in town but we were late in the game and booked at the Lake View because we could. Well, what a gift that proved to be!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Cooperstown area. The room was clean and comfortable. We didn't take advantage of the lake amenities, but we did enjoy the view. There's nice green space around the motel grounds, so you can go out and enjoy some outside time without going far. I appreciated having a fridge, microwave and coffee... More
