Nice little place. Lakefront section is right on Rt 80 so there's traffic, but Otsego Lake is right in front of you everywhere you go. Room 1 is a hidden gem. You have a glass door leading to a tiny patio with a couple of adirondack chairs and a 4 ft x 10 ft little triangle of land but it is angled perfectly so it feels very private. It also looks directly out over the lake. There is even a little waterfall/drainage ditch to the right that lets you hear falling water. I will absolutely come here again as long as I can stay in this room. Great find!

We were looking for a quick getaway after the last few month of isolation due to Covid and our cruise vacation being cancelled. We settled on going to Cooperstown. We have been here several times before but always camping. I found the Lake View Motel online and was able to get a last minute room. Our room was super affordable and clean. It had a great view of the lake from the room but the direct lake access the motel provides was the best. My husband could fish from there while I just sat in a very peaceful location. The lake was so clean! My husband said the fish he caught (and released) were the healthiest fish he has ever seen. It’s not peak season at the lake yet which was fine by us. We enjoyed the quiet. The motel was easily located to Main Street Cooperstown and Doreen in the office gave us superb ideas for dining and was very helpful in navigating our vacation through the covid guidelines. Though the room itself could be updated and possibly use a new air conditioner, it was exactly what we expected from our motel stay. I would recommend the Lake View Motel over and over again.

Stayed at Lake View with my Dad during a summer trip to Cooperstown and had a wonderful time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the accommodations were simple but perfectly clean and comfortable and we loved taking a dip in the lake in the mornings. Beautiful views, convenient to Cooperstown, and great for those needing accessible locations, as you can park directly outside most of the rooms. Would definitely stay there again!

Had a very quiet and relaxing one night stay at this Motel. Staff were excellent, very friendly and very helpful. The views are tremendous and the lake is so pleasant, a great place to just chill and relax. Plenty of seating areas to view the beautiful scenery from by the lakeside or hilltop viewing points. The Rooms are clean and functional and we had a quiet restful nights sleep.
