Lake N Pines Motel
Ranked #13 of 16 Hotels in Cooperstown
Reviewed September 2, 2014

If you like faceless, modern hotels with all modcons, Lake N Pines is not for you. The chalets and their settings felt a bit like returning to a 1960s beach holiday. But the place was clean and spacious. We loved the outdoor pool, at night. And the lake itself is amazing - wonderful waking up in this place and walking to breakfast. Take a boatride out on the lake, and visit Cooperstown - we loved it. Back to the Future stuff.

Room Tip: Unless you are a rowdy family, avoid the two/three bedroom chalets

Rates are high for what you get. Rooms are fairly clean but dated. Looks like someone killed a few bugs on the lampshade and just left them there. I go to the Catskills quite often and stay in some pretty remote locations, so bugs are expected. But to leave them dead on the lampshades & ceiling fixtures is not acceptable. Wanted to go in the hot tub but water was green and uninviting. Complimentary Continental Breakfast was pretty awful. They could make a nice viewing area near the lake, which is very scenic, but it's all broken asphalt instead.

This motel was just ok. The staff here was pleasant enough. Room was comfortable but could be updated for rates charged. The only real negative was when I went to give my kiddos a bath and I saw that the bottom of shower curtain was moldy. Ew!

This was my first trip to the Glimmerglass Summer Opera Festival and I searched on Expedia for an affordable motel nearby. The Lake N Pines was exactly that. Convenient location at an affordable rate. The property sits right above Lake Otsego and some units have a nice view. It is well maintained on the outside and offers basic motel amenities. The unit I stayed in was very dated in its interior design, had a fridge, but no microwave or coffee maker. The mattress should have been replaced about 10 years prior to my stay. Breakfast was very low frills, but served in a nice breakfast room right above the lake with a nice terrace. Bring food if you are staying here or be prepared to drive 7 miles into Cooperstown for restaurants.

Room Tip: First floor units have better views of the lake

This hotel has plusses. It is clean, comfortable bed , on a very beautiful lake and close to attractions (Glimmerglass opera and town of Cooperstown ) But it is very dated and priced high (but the area is high priced in summer).The breakfast was fair, but you can eat it on a deck overlooking the lake and you can sit on the deck and sip wine (you buy elsewhere) and watch the sun set on the lake. Did not use the pools and amenities but they were not appealing.
Tho they had wifi my computer did not work --a kind staff member let me use her lap top--nor did ATT cell phones. Staff provided good restaurant reccomendations,.

The room over looking the lake was very nice and spacious. The beds are comfortable... but...There are no closets for hanging jackets or slacks but instead there is a wall mounted rack next to the dresser. This might be picky but my wife likes a full sized mirror that can be mounted on a door but there were none other than a wall mirror over the small desk. Most annoying were the size and cheapness of the towels. The bath towels were not much larger than many face towels and the face towels were like wash cloths. Their texture was like coarse sand paper. I also agree with an earlier poster regarding the disappointing breakfast selections. Three cold cereals, one of which was Fruit Loops? Also a few plain & cinnamon raisin bagels, packaged oat meal (which was ok) yogurt and donuts, with no fresh fruit or hard boiled eggs do not rate a breakfast to brag about. We decided to go into Cooperstown for breakfast instead. There was no coffee or tea available in the room and the coffee maker in the office was out of service. The close proximity of the Glimmerglass Music Venue was the main reason for our visit. I would expect better user friendly amenities from an AAA recommended motel,
