We only stayed for one night but found the place met our needs. The room was very clean, the staff was helpful with local information, and the beach at the lake was amazing. There was a deck overlooking the lake, pedal boats to use, fishing gear for use in a special area, and a nice sized swimming area with a... More

This was our second trip to The Baseball Hall of Fame and this place was a great find for me and my son. The room was small but very clean. There were some in room amenities such as a dispenser in the shower with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There was a coffee maker and min fridge as well. No... More

We went to Cooperstown on our road trip and stayed here for 2 nights. We were visiting the Hall of Fame. I'm always weary of staying in motels because I'm kind of a hotel snob since I worked for a high end brand hotel for 8 years but we needed something for less money and decided based on the reviews...

The staff is really nice, and the outside of the property is immaculate. We didn't find our unit dirty, but it was really dated, the rooms need a face lift. I would suggest a more upscale bathroom, updated bedding. And, there is no pool.

Sandy and I took a three day vacation visit the Glimmerglass Opera near Cooperstown. We picked the Lake View Motel because it is located between Glimmerglass and Cooperstown and we had not been to either before. The reasonable rate was also a factor in our decision. We stayed in a unit near the office (at the base of the hill)... More

The grounds, the buildings, and the rooms were immaculate....Our room number 30 looked like it was brand new. A little bit out of town, but at a beautiful location just above the lake. Also a bit cheaper than staying at one of the chain hotels in town. It was so quiet we slept with the windows open.

We weren't looking to spend the hundreds of dollars that many of the B&B's were asking, so we settled for this place. It's about a 10 minutes drive to get into Cooperstown, but it's a pretty area. The room we had was up on the hill, at the back of their property and it was clean. It had a really... More

We stayed one night. Super rate, very nice hosts. The view of lake was great ! Loved the waterfront seating with a view. Had everything we needed and put us in a great location for taking in sights of Cooperstown. We would definitely stay here again.
