we had an overnight at the half moon. we have one of the deluxe balcony cottages. Everything was very clean and all the pople were very nice and accomendating. The Pool was very clean and nicely maintained. I really like how close it is to the strip, just a short walk down the hill. We booked another 5 days in July!!

The view from the motel was unbelievable! The location was superb, it was just steps away from the boardwalk and lake. The pool and room were very clean. All in all it was a great value and a pleasant stay

Lake Winnipesaukee is truly my favorite place on earth. So staying up at the lake anywhere is a blessing. The Half-moon cottages are neat clean and cozy. The cottage is small but offers you the basic essentials of your queen bed, private bathroom and private porch. That is all you need as you will be spending your time out at the lake or on the porch admiring the lake. All the staff were friendly and the check in/out process was easy. There is a large outdoor pool however I didn’t choose to use as the weather was a still a bit chilly at the end of May. The rooms have heat, A/C and a small fridge. For the location and views alone….the price you pay is very reasonable. If you haven’t spent time on Lake Winnipesaukee….you are missing out! What are you waiting for?!

Great location right on Weirs beach strip.

Stayed here on memorial day weekend with the family on a "Large Room" cottage which had a great view of the lake. We booked 4 cottages and 1 had one king size bed, a second bed and a sofa bed! all seem to have been recently updated and very clean.

The only "down side" i would say is that the bathrooms are tiny! is a stand up shower (very small) but updated and very clean.

Overall, great location, good price, updated, and very clean great for families.

Room Tip: Cottages with "shared" balcony have a better view of the lake

This hotel was located right across the street from the Mount Washington and we were in town for a dinner/dance cruise, so it was very convenient. It is also right down the street from the bars so we could walk right from our room. One thing was, when we went into our room, the door was unlocked, however, I think this was just a mistake by the last person, because you cannot lock the door before closing it, you had to close and then lock it, but we locked it once inside and it was fine. We had to run the hot water for a while before it came on, but it did come on and two of us had full showers.

On a last minute decision I decided to go to New Hampshire for the folliage. Friends suggested Weirs beach great central location. Restaurants that are good that arent good enough. Took a gamble on the Halfmoon motel on mixed reviews. And was pleasantly suprised. Clean comfortable room well kept grounds. Front desk was helpful in suggesting where to go where to drive for great veiws and or food. Beautiful view Bonus step out the front door of room and amazing veiw of Lake Winnipesaukee. Look forward to coming back

Room Tip: Cabin 9 or 10 great veiws with all the upgrades
