“Not again!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

It was close to the baseball hall of fame, but that's the only good thing about this hotel. The rooms are small, they smell horrible, and are not the cleanest either.

Stayed November 2011, traveled with family

My girlfriend and I just left this motel and it was awesome. We are normally chain hotel people but on our New England Vacation, I knew we would have to go with the lesser known or ma and pa places. This motel was nothing what we expected. The owners were friendly the view was amazing, just across the street there is the lake and they have paddleboats, a diving board, a tanning area, even fishing rods. The room was perfect for the two of us. Upon leaving my girlfriend said if we ever come back up here, we are staying here. It is only about 6-7 miles from Cooperstown but you feel further removed.

My wife and I, recently stayed at this motel. We had read many reviews on the property and decided to try it. We were not disappointed. When you pull onto the property, you feel like you have just gone back into time, before the big chains took over the industry. I mean this in a very good sese. The property is well maintained and the room that we had, seemed to have been recently updated. We stayed two nights and enjoyed it totally. Our room looked out onto the lake, which is pristine and beautiful. The only drawback, if you can call it that, was that there was no breakfast. That was ok for us, because, we drove into Cooperstown for breakfast and parked for the day and began our tour of the Hall of Fame, right after breakfast.

Traveling with 3 doesn't do in all of the bed and breakfast in Cooperstown. Found Lake View and loved it just a few minutes to town - cute cabins with great views we just sat outside 1 night relaxing. On a 2 week trip and they let us use their laundry- we were there hall of fame weekend which is really when you should go-rooms are higher but all of the hall of famers are in town- cabin was big enough- clean- great kitchen bought bread and milk and had PB&j and cereal

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.
