It is right on the lake and a short walk from downtown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. A bit worn but clean. We liked that it had it's own restaurant and sitting on the dock watching the sun go down was a treat.

The Lake Front Hotel is on the lake and a five minute walk from the MLB Hall of Fame and downtown Cooperstown. We had a very comfortable and well appointed room for a reasonable price. The on-sight restaurant has good food, drinks and prices. Cooperstown is a very attractive town and I believe that this hotel is probably the best...

I've given them repeat business, but it's a mixed bag. The two rooms I and a traveling companion stayed in were recently renovated, which was nice. The location can't be beat if you are visiting the baseball hall of fame. The wifi was very good for the most part. On the downside, the walls are paper thin and thus I...

I booked and then cancelled a reservation 8 days later for a booking 5 months away. I knew there would be a small fee if I cancelled, but rooms were filling up quick everywhere for my daughters college graduation in May. However, our plans changed and Lake Front Hotel was asked to drop the fee by my 3rd party booking...

BarbRN212, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Thank you for also making it known that you were in fact aware of the cancellation policy, it wasn't a hidden term in your contract. Regardless of how far away a reservation is or when a cancellation is received, it is a standard practice for a cancellation fee to be...

We stayed here during Christmas break for 2 nights. The rooms were very clean and exactly as pictured. The staff was incredibly friendly. There were no frills but for the price I was satisfied. The hotel (more of a motel) was a short walk to Main St and the Hall of Fame. I would definitely stay here again.

It was fairly quiet but wonderful. Loved the hotel and the surrounding area, great place to stay! Walked around town, ate at Mel's and had some drinks at a tavern. Friendly village and people that live here :)

Very nice hotel with several different buildings, ours had a double-double room looking out over Lake Otsego. Ideally situated for lake activities, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, or other stops in Cooperstown or the surrounding area. Would stay here again anytime!

We stayed here 3 years ago and the Lake Front Hotel didn't disappoint either time! This Hotel is family owned/maintained; was seriously upgraded and modernized just a few years ago. The rooms are all good-sized, very modern & clean. Bathrooms are fresh and very clean. We reserved 2 rooms; room #16 for us (1st floor) and room #1 (2nd floor)...

On day 2 of a 14 day road trip we found ourselves heading to Cooperstown with no reservations. We first checked out our options on Trip Advisor and started calling ahead. Prices can get pretty steep in this town so the $165/a night at Lake Front Hotel won our business. Anyway, we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay...

The location is great and you're able to arrive at anytime as we arrived after 11 and you can ring the bell of reception. The position on the lake is lovely too. The standard to the look of the venue is great and the bathrooms are lovely but the bedroom I found small and its smelt a little stale in...

“A few rooms have lake views, so try and ask for them.”
  • From upstairs room's doorway, on a gray April morning. Prettier view of lake is from window.
