I found this place online. We had never stayed on the lake so we decided to this year. It was close to the farming Museum and the Cooper museum. We had never visited them before.The rooms were very reasonable and the views were stunning. The place is a little old, but well kept.We were surprised at how clean it was.... More

I was in area for SUNY Oneonta family weekend. Hotels in Oneonta all booked. I found this motel based on Internet reviews. I'm always sceptical, but this was a winner. A friendly greeting at check in. I asked for restaurant recommendations and was given a map with several choices mapped out. Our room was in building on upper level. I'm... More

Great stay!! Stayed in a room with a king bed. Comfortable bed. Excellent views of the lake! Needs some updating but we went to Cooperstown to enjoy the hall of fame and shops not sit in the motel room. They also have several cottages on site plus lake access with paddle boats, fishing poles, and a swimming area. Staff is... More

We spent one night in the Cooperstown area and chose motel for it's convenience to Cooperstown [only 5 miles]; it's view of the Lake, its cleanliness, and its reasonable price. We used Trip Advisor to consider options and were happy with this choice of the Lake View Motel. If we were to return to Cooperstown, we would definitely consider another... More

Due to some weather issues, we had to change our plans last minute. It was Labor Day weekend and there were not a lot of places available. We happened upon the Lake View Motel and were very pleased with our accommodations. We stayed in one of the cottages at the top of the hill. We had one bedroom, a bathroom,... More

We recently stayed for one night for a spur of the minute trip to Cooperstown. In the past we've stayed in the more familiar chain hotels due to my aversion to the unknown so I was a bit nervous when my husband told me he booked this motel (especially since I have not stayed in anything called a "motel" since...

Stayed here for a week while my son played at Dreams Park. I was in room #31. The view was beautiful from the room. The room is a little dated but very clean. The staff was wonderful and friendly. I gave it an overall rating of 4 because the beds would have used a little more updating. Other than that,... More

Perfect spot for a quick overnight stay. Beautiful view of lake Otsego. The rooms are small and dated but clean. The check in was easy and quick. The location to Cooperstown was perfect. The lake was very clean and refreshing.
