Reviewed September 12, 2013

I chose this motel because it is close to Meadowbrook where my daughter and I attended a concert. We walked downtown and to the beach which was nice because I didn't have to look for a parking spot. The room was fine and the shower was awesome! Hot and lots of water pressure. The view was fabulous and my daughter loved the king sized pool. I would definitely stay here again as it was also a great value.

Room was great. We stayed in Cabin 4. Views from thefront porch were awesome. Sun rise and sunset were incredible. There is the Tower Hill tavern down the street and they were having a live band Sagurday night. 20 bucks to get in. But we got to hear them for free sitting out on our porch. It was great. It was nice to listento the band and be able to talk to the person next to you with out shouting. Got Pizza for dinner at the tavern too. It was good. You can see when the Mt. washington comes and out of the pier. Room was perfect for 2. Who spends alot of time in there room on vacation anyway. It was too cold to use the pool was it was cleaned each morning. The owner was more than accomidating. Forgot shampoo and she had it right there. The resident Cat was adorable. I would love to come back in the summer. Things closed early because of the off season, but the arcade was awesome. Better than the one down the road. All in all we had a great time. The only complaint was the wifi was spotty. And whoever complained about the hot water, we had no problem...Thanks for a great weekend. We will be back.

We just got back from here. A weekend getaway without kids We had a great stay. We stayed in cottage 22 the last cottage in back of the motel. Now you would think that this would spoil the veiw not the case. It is higher than thw motel and the view was great. The room was clean and stocked. We had a kitchentte however we did not use it for this trip. It has everything you need microwave, toaster, hot plate. As for other reviews that say it is run down. That is not true. You can tell that they just did alot of work. However someone expexting a 5 star hotel needs to go elsewhere. This is a cottage that was built in the 30s and is rustic but wonderful. And the pillow are the best ive used. Long oversized. Would love to know where to get one!!!! All in all great stay. And great location 1 block to main street. Perfect for bike week. But im sure they book fast. The price was great but we were in the off season.

My wife and I returned home a couple of days ago after spending four days and nights at Weirs Beach. My wife always wanted to stay at the Half Moon so I went along with her choice. They did not disappoint at all. The price was reasonable, the grounds clean and neat, the pool was one of the cleanest I have ever seen. The rooms were clean and each day the staff remade the beds and cleaned after we left the room. We never felt pushed out so they could get their work done. The hotel manager,Beverly,was both courteous and helpful. The woman in charge of the cleaning ( I wish I got her name) was equally as nice. The view from our room was just fabulous!. We had a perfect view of the lake with the mountains in the background. The boardwalk, the M/S Mt Washington, train and good food was only a short walk away. Both the boat and train can be seen coming and going from the great view at the room. And watching the sunrise is beyond words. This place was a heartache to leave. The only drawback, and it is a very minor one, was having to wait up to five minutes for the water to get hot for a shower. As was explained to us, the hotel sits at the end of the water line so it takes a little time to warm up. But it was so humid for 3 days it really did not matter. No place is perfect but with this place, you can't get any closer to perfection..We both have already decided we will return next August. This time we will be taking the room above us that includes a kitchenette. Thank you so much for everything!

I will not be returning to this Motel. Although the view of the lake was nice and the pool looked clean, the motel was run down. We had a terrible time getting hot water for a shower and the toilet didn't work well. The room was worn down and the sheets didn't fit the bed. When you woke up, the flat sheet was loose from the corners and scrunched up all around you. When I spoke to the owners about the toilet they just told me where to get a plunger. When we had no hot water they didn't apologize at all. They did send some maintenance guys to look at the shower but the next day we still had trouble getting hot water. We were told we had to let it run for five minutes but it was more like ten. The price was too high for the room and the attitude of the staff was rather brusk.

Located in the center of Weirs Beach, we enjoyed the quiet, clean motel room. There are many cabins and everything at Half Moon overlooks the beautiful lake. A good place for families. The MV Mount Washington docks in front and the scenic railroad can be easily seen.
