I just happened to find this hotel after searching on the internet for a room in Cooperstown. I found hotels in the area very expensive and not very close to the Hall of Fame, which meant driving up to 35 miles and parking in the HoF lots out of town and using the trolley. When I stumbled on Lake Front, I found the location desirable: only a block from the Hall of Fame. While it is not cheap, I found it comparable to other hotels much farther away and, in many cases, it was less expensive than some of the chain hotels. Upon arrival in Cooperstown, it was very easy to find and a very nice surprise. It was very nice and scenic, right on Lake Otsego and the marina. The front desk people were very helpful, especially when it came to where and how to park to visit the Hall, so as not to tie-up their small parking lots for incoming guests. Basically, it was about 30 feet outside of the lot, on the street (some of the few free parking places in the whole town, which we never would have known about, had the front desk not informed us; if we been staying more than one night, we could have stayed in the hotel parking lot. The property was very well-kept and attractive. The room was extremely clean and neat, although a bit small, which really wasn't a problem. We had a second floor room and the view of Otsego Lake was beautiful. Wi-Fi was available, as were normal amenities (tv, ac, etc). The restaurant onsite was very nice, well decorated, the prices very reasonable and the staff was friendly; breakfast was free, if a guest of the hotel. The walk to the Hall of Fame was no more than 5 minutes, as advertised. An added feature is the Glimmerglass Queen Tour Boat, which is onsite and available for tours of the lake. If you are a guest, upon check-in, you receive one free ticket for the boat tour.
Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Lake Front and will definitely try to stay there again, if in Cooperstown. I would recommend it to anyone.
For a view of the lake, get a second floor room.
