4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed only one night for a wedding, very nice location just a short walk to Main St and the Baseball hall of Fame. Very clean and well taken care of. Nice to be next to the lake. Wished that the fan in the bathroom was on it's own switch. Did not try the restaurant or the lake tour boat which... More

Love a new building that's so clean but small parts kept this from getting the best rating for that style motel. The free wifi barely worked on one device, a second device couldn't use it at all. Whomever designed the bathrooms should be fired.

I went along with my boyfriend for Labor Day weekend as that's when his birthday is. It's a quaint place located right on the lake with the ferry dock right outside the restaurant which is attached to the hotel itself. Our hotel room was actually decently sized and very clean! The bathroom was stark white and again, extremely clean. We... More

The Lake Front Hotel has one of the best locations in Cooperstown! Right on the lake, it is just 3 blocks from the Baseball Museum and downtown. The lake tour boat is right there, along with the Lake Front Restaurant. First, the room. It is clean and updated, and ours had a little sitting room. The tv, however, was in... More

We stayed here during while my son played at the Cooperstown Dreams Park for a baseball tournament. The location right on the lake can't be beat, and easy walking distance to the "downtown" area to visit the hall of fame, shops and restaurants. We initially didn't think we could stay here since it seemed like there was no availability for... More

I stayed at this hotel when I went to the Mike Piazza induction ceremony for the Baseball Hall of Fame with friends. This is the perfect hotel to stay at if you are visiting Cooperstown. It is close to the Hall and Main Street where all of the shops and restaurants are. Waking up to see the lake was relaxing... More

We stay here annually for HOF induction weekend and it's pretty perfect. The rooms are cool and comfortable, and the location provides the greatest stepping off point for the HOF, the village and all of Main Street's happenings. The staff is friendly and always accommodating, and the restaurant provides a welcome oasis to dine for breakfast or dinner (we're always... More

For the cost of this room the amenities with the equivalent of a motel 6 not a $200 a night hotel and the room was extremely small the soap was about a quarter of an inch in diameter the towels could not go around a size 40 waist and I do not recommend this hotel to anyone anytime anywhere

Had a very nice time with good food, great view and pleasant atmosphere. The service was good and the décor modern and well orchestrated. It was a bit pricey, but we had a party of eight for a special occasion so that wasn't a detriment. Didn't see any families with young children and the vibe and food are more geared... More

We stayed at this great location on the lake. The room was on the small side but very clean as well as the rest of the hotel. There was morning coffee in the office plus they give you each a $5.00 coupon for breakfast as well as one ticket for the Glimmerglass boat which was a nice treat. The town... More
