The Lake Front Hotel has one of the best locations in Cooperstown! Right on the lake, it is just 3 blocks from the Baseball Museum and downtown. The lake tour boat is right there, along with the Lake Front Restaurant. First, the room. It is clean and updated, and ours had a little sitting room. The tv, however, was in... More

We stayed here during while my son played at the Cooperstown Dreams Park for a baseball tournament. The location right on the lake can't be beat, and easy walking distance to the "downtown" area to visit the hall of fame, shops and restaurants. We initially didn't think we could stay here since it seemed like there was no availability for... More

I stayed at this hotel when I went to the Mike Piazza induction ceremony for the Baseball Hall of Fame with friends. This is the perfect hotel to stay at if you are visiting Cooperstown.

We stay here annually for HOF induction weekend and it's pretty perfect. The rooms are cool and comfortable, and the location provides the greatest stepping off point for the HOF, the village and all of Main Street's happenings. The staff is friendly and always accommodating, and the restaurant provides a welcome oasis to dine for breakfast or dinner (we're always... More

For the cost of this room the amenities with the equivalent of a motel 6 not a $200 a night hotel and the room was extremely small the soap was about a quarter of an inch in diameter the towels could not go around a size 40 waist and I do not recommend this hotel to anyone anytime anywhere

Had a very nice time with good food, great view and pleasant atmosphere. The service was good and the décor modern and well orchestrated. It was a bit pricey, but we had a party of eight for a special occasion so that wasn't a detriment. Didn't see any families with young children and the vibe and food are more geared... More

We stayed at this great location on the lake. The room was on the small side but very clean as well as the rest of the hotel.

Overpriced for what we got. We were very disappointed when we saw the room. We asked to be moved but there was no other choice. The Standard King room was small. Just enough space for a bed, two side tables and a small table and chairs. It felt very claustrophobic. The ground floor rooms look out into a parking lot.... More
