My wife and I were in Cooperstown for a long weekend in Sept. We booked a room for here for 2 nights, We chose the Hall of Fame package. What a great deal! This quaint hotel is very well maintained, clean, but a bit dated. The front desk manager was courteous, helpful, and friendly. The room was average size, with a newer bathroom. Our only issues were, the shower head was terrible, with very low water pressure. The two double beds were a a bit on the firm side, and noisy. Two plastic cafeteria type chairs, were the only seating. No restaurant on-site. The walls were very thin, we could hear everything going on next door, and above. We would definately return, off season, as I understand it gets a bit crazy during the high season.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lake View Motel for one night while visiting Cooperstown and the Baseball HOF. We were given a King room on the ground floor. Like another reviewer noted, this is not the fanciest place in the world, however, it is EXTREMELY clean. If you care more about comfort/cleanliness than trendy decorations, this is the spot for you.
The view of Otsego lake was incredible, they have lounge chairs and tables set up along the property, making it easy to sit and relax. It was a bit too cold to go swimming but I can tell the lake would be very enjoyable in the hot summer months. The motel is an easy 5-10 minute drive into downtown Cooperstown. I found the staff to be very friendly. I would definitely recommend the Lake View if you are planning a visit to the area.

If you are going to Cooperstown, this is the place to stay. It was right on the Lake with a beautiful view. It was only 5 minutes to the town. They have a great package deal just call and speak to them. The rooms are huge and immaculate! We will be back for sure!

We were a couple who spent 3 nights in a queen motel room. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The grounds were kept up well and the motel had a lovely view of the lake. There are lots of places to sit. Unfortunately, for us, the kids (and parents) invaded the beach, docks, and swimming areas when we wanted to swim, so we weren't able to get in the water because it was so crowded. At times, however, the beach and swimming area was deserted. Our air conditioner was noisy. The ice machine was broken when we wanted ice, although it had been working earlier. This place is great for families with children.

We had one night while visiting Cooperstown. Good place, lake view, nice staff, not too far from downtown. Bedrooms are clean, it looks like they have been recently redone/improved.

Loved this property and location. Manager is knowledgeable and friendly; lake access was pleasant this very hot week. Distance from Baseball Hall of Fame was perfect -- out of the hub bub but just a short drive. Room on upper level overlooking the lake was quiet and view was pleasant. Wifi was another bonus.
Hope we can go back.

Room Tip: Loved being on the upper tier of rooms, but it is a steep walk down to the beach.

We stayed for two nights with another couple, and found this place just right--nothing fancy, just a friendly place, clean rooms, a fishing dock (they provide the poles), a picnic area, a small swimming beach, paddle boats, just enough to do after visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Fenimore Art Museum, Glimmerglass Opera House--these are musts! Although they don't serve breakfast, they directed us to a lovely place atop a hill overlooing the lake--Cobblescott Inn--fresh homemade breakfast. They also graciously called to see if a certain restaurant was opened for lunch, and made another call to find out the best place to pick up our opera house tickets. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake go fast, so call early.
