I took the family to NH for a vacation and spent 2 days at this establishment during our trip. We reserved a cottage in the back row that would accommodate the 4 of us. It had a screened porch and sitting area which was in need of repairs from nails sticking out everywhere and sanding. Upon arrival the office person...

1) We inspect porch floorboards regularly and repair or replace them as needed. 2) Our guests like old-fashioned keys because they work reliably. Our property is very safe. 3) During the summer, ACs are always turned on before guest arrival. 4) A one-hour wait for a maintenance person is not unusual for a small lodging property. If a staffer was...

We came up for the Timberman Ironman event and stayed for 2 nights in the motel. It was very clean but very outdated. The room was pretty large (a queen bed and a pull out) but the bathroom was tiny. We had a great view of the lake. Overall, it provided us exactly with what we needed with no complaints.

We stayed at the Half Moon for 2 nights. Pros: The view to the lake is spectacular, free parking, Wi-Fi, cute two-room cottages with little kitchenette and full size fridge. Nice swimming pool. They let us use it before check-in and after check-out. Cons: Air conditioner is old and loud, placed in the window where it blows right onto your...

1) We regularly replace our AC units. The cottage bedroom ACs are placed where they blow over the foot of the bed, not the head. 2) We're sorry the porch floorboard had loose nails and a rough surface; we will replace it. Otherwise, our porches don't require updating. They are classic New England porches, equipped with either Adirondack chairs, wrought...

My girlfriend and I wanted a trip to the Lake and we stumbled across the Half Moon. We love cabins and cottages and select ones are dog friendly so this place was a no-brainer. Even before checking in I had a good experience after emailing the manager some questions. I received emails back right away. On first arrival we couldn't...

We have been here for years and it always makes us happy. The Half Moon is in the perfect spot for enjoying Weirs Beach, Meredith, and the surrounding lakes area. We love the pool, the cottages, the motel units, and just everything about this place. Just stayed for 3 nights in the upper motel unit and cannot wait to go...

My daughter and I travelled to Weirs beach for first time this summer. Our room was nice, clean and the internet worked well. The pool was nice and clean. The hotel is walking distance to boardwalk, restaurants and of course the big lake. I would definitely stay here again when in Weirs Beach.

We stayed here while we attended SoulFest at Gunstock Mtn Resort. We didn't spend much time at the motel but it was pretty much what we expected, a place to sleep and nothing fancy. The room was clean but dated. The pool looked well maintained. Our only complaint was our door needed to be slammed shut in order to fully...

At check-in, we always ask our guests to let us know if they need anything. Our maintenance crew would have quickly fixed the guest's door to close easily, had we been informed of the problem.

The cottage kitchenette, bathroom and living room were updated. The refrigerator unit has a top freezer which was great to store our ice packs for the cooler which we used when we went out and about. The bathroom is shower only no tub. But a beach bucket worked fine to bathe our toddler. The bedroom with a king bed has...

Our king bedrooms are mostly updated. They have new bed frames, headboards, mattresses, easy chairs, and floor lamps. We haven't updated the bureaus or bedroom TVs yet. Our cottage bathrooms have showers. Our motel bathrooms have tubs.

My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages that overlook Lake Winnipessaukee in Laconia NH. The cottage was very clean, recently upgraded with a new carpet, freshly painted, bathroom updated. Each cottage has a porch with 2 Adirondack chairs to be able to relax and watch the lake. There is also a large pool with plenty of chairs...
