“The Perfect Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

My husband and I go up to visit our daughter a couple of times a year and stayed in hotels the first few times. They were ok, but they were hotels. We really wanted more space, freedom and comfort; and through trip advisor we found it. Camp View is feels great from the moment you drive in - look to the right and see the bay, look to the left and see the nicest range of cottages hanging out together being inviting. Our cottage was so comfortable, well stocked and clean; it was peaceful, but we enjoyed talking to some of the employees and guests also. Our comings and goings felt private, very different from the fishbowl a hotel can be. And we had space to spread out and be comfortable - at a better price than most of the hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Cabin 7 is the largest and definitely a fave.

I absolutely loved these little cottages! They were so charming and home-y. Sweetly decorated, comfy beds, very clean and nicely equipted. My gal pals and I, felt right at home, we rented Cottage #7 and we were pleasantly surprised, nice 2 bedrooms, with a little sunporch, picinic table and BBQ grill.
The location was also wonderful, overlooking Niantic Bay, nestled on the hill of Ropeferry Rd., just over the Niantic Bridge in Waterford, CT. Close to Restuarants; like Sunset Ribs and close to Main St. Niantic, Movie Theatre, and Beaches.
We also loved how nicely maintaned the grounds were, with flower boxes and manacured lawn. The staff, ( I beleive her name was "May") really made our stay top-notch! She was so helpful and welcoming - we really didn't want to leave.
I highly reccommend staying here. We were told that some of the cottages have fireplaces, but since our stay was in the Summer we didn't have much use for it, but it would be nice if it were during the cooler months.

Room Tip: Our Cottage was #7 and we were very happy. I would choose a cottage with a fireplace in the cooler m...

My wife and two kids love vacations as much as I do. We have a small dog, so finding places that allow dogs is of top priority to us. Campview Motor Court is a collection of small cottages on a hill that overlooks Niantic harbor. The cabins have full kitchens, are clean, and simply furnished.The owner (May) is sweet and personable. The groundskeeper ( Mike) was a little quiet at first, but eventually warmed up and was very helpful. Although we don't fish, May's brother runs one of the best fishing charters in the area (there is a lot of competition), and we saw some pictures of unbelievable catches other guests had made. One of the first things that we did upon arrival, was to unplug the cable from the TV and tell our kids that the TV wasn't working ( sorry kids, it p'bly worked fine). We brought scooters and trackball and a Nerf football, a kite and playing cards. There is a giant slide and old school swingset, as well as badminton and horse shoes. There is an enormous lawn ( well kept by Mike) and comfortable chairs for reading. The cabins are near to Niantic, which is a small New England town that has a beautiful park and some nice small beaches. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, as well as a large number of used bookstores, and antique shops. There is a Dairy Queen, which competes with at least 3 other ice cream parlors. We went, planning to spend a night or two, and decided to stay for a whole week. We will return next year, and frankly can't wait.

Spent 2 nights at CampView. One part of the experience that was a bit problematic was the somewhat unavailable owner. Each time I went to the office to register she wasn't immediately available; though the room was ready and I had prepaid, so it wasn't too bad, but each time I tried she was not around. A small nuisance perhaps, One caution: the address given on the website is the owner's home and not the actual cabins, which are around 3/4 of a mile away. This is important if you are putting the address into a GPS, etc.

The cabins are very close to one another, so it was a bit noisy. That's about the only real negative.

One the positive side: Rooms were very clean, decor was quaint for sure, but the place was neat and pleasant. The bed and furniture were comfortable also. And the price was an absolute bargain. The location is really good: easy to get to, several places to eat w/in easy distance, a very scenic location near the water.

If you're expecting luxury, you won't find it, but I was not expecting it. I was hoping for an inexpensive, tidy, welcoming sort of place, and that's what I got. I would return, and I would recommend it.

While looking for a reasonable place for a weekend in Niantic Ct. my wife and I were frustrated with the lackluster and over priced motels in the area. We found Camp View purely by accident and haven't regreted it once. The owner May keeps a gaggle of unique cabins in pristine condition. Her attention to detail is a rarity these days. Reasonably priced and with a beautiful view, come here if you want to relax. We are so comfortable here the owner, May, allowed our wedding to be held on the grounds. A must stay for any jaded traveler.

This year will make the third year in a row that we'll be staying at Camp View Motor Court. We are racers with the International Supermodified Association and are always on the lookout for reasonable rates. Camp View reminds us of traveling along the Lincoln Highway and finding quaint, comfortable motor courts that are reasonably priced and offer great views. There's nothing fancy or upscale about this motel, but it is clean, comfortable and almost like going home to stay in your own cabin. Highly recommended due to the attention to detail by Mae and her desire to attend to the guests needs even when arriving late or checking out late.

  • Liked — the views, proximity to event i was attending, friendliness of staff-a classic motor court
  • Disliked — bathroom was a little small but nothing major

Nice clean cottages on the water, reasonably priced. Close to boat ramp. Walking distance to village shops, movies, restaurants. An annual event for us. Kids like it, even teenagers.
