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

The rate was outrageous and the wifi is straight terrible which is a big deal for me being on the road often.

As long as you go into this motel keeping in mind what you pd for the night, I'm sure you'll agree! We pd $60 for a lake view room. It was clean, convenient, charming and just what we needed. Walls are a little thin so you will overhear your neighbors. The view, the staff, the cleanliness all come together nicely... More

In a baseball town the term diamond in the rough comes to mind. The rooms were clean. The view was great of the water in Otsego Lake. The people in the office were wonderful and so very helpful. It is about 5 miles out of town but well worth it. It worth the phone call to stay here.
