Just what I needed, and a great experience. This motel, had a gorgeous view, a friendly and engaging staff, extremely well kept grounds, and a very very good housekeeping staff. The price was quite reasonable.... Only wish I could have stayed longer. Thanks for a great accomadtion. I'll be back!

We stayed for one night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't pack a bowl for our breakfast and we were given clean ones to use. The room was clean and quiet. An extra bonus was a babbling brook outside our window that lulled us to sleep. There are some docks across the street on the clean lake....

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. Now you must visit Laske view again to use the paddle boats and do some fishing.

I was very grateful to find this motel for a trip to Cooperstown. It is not in Cooperstown but very close to it. This has the best value of all accommodations I have researched in the area. We arrived late but the key and instructions were left for us by the front office. When we got to our cabin I...

This motel did not disappoint . Beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. Beautiful and quiet location. Our son was able to fish in the lake. It was a quick drive in to the hall of fame. I would highly recommend to anyone. Our room had a frig and microwave.

We loved the motel, the location is great, it was quiet but we were there right before the season started so we were the only ones there for 3 nights and then it was full. Room was very clean and close to Cooperstown so the drive was very nice.

We enjoyed spending the weekend here. Rooms are very clean, linen is changed everyday. There is a fridge and microwave in the room and also a coffee maker. There are Adirondack chairs by the lake if one wants to relax, read a book or just admire the view. Will go back again!

My husband and I traveled to Cooperstown for a little getaway and to specifically visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. We did not want to stay right in town so we were fortunate enough to have found out about the Lake View Motel and booked our stay there. It exceeded our expectations! From the staff in the office, the cleaniness...

First, it should be noted that the name is Lake View, not lakefront. There is a road separating the motel from the actual lake. We stayed in unit 1 thinking we would be right next to the lake, but alas that was not the case. In fact, we were right next to the road. Next time, and there will be...

The motel has a gorgeous view of the lake and the staff is very friendly. The room is about average. The headboard loose and mattress just OK. The price is right and the drive there is pretty, especially during the fall season. For the price it gets 4 stars, if more expensive would have to rate a little lower. The...

Front desk very friendly at check in. We were in town to spend the day at HOF and downtown Cooperstown. The room was clean, but the bed was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and in need of replacement. The next time in town I will book earlier and hopefully find a better quality room in the area.

Wayne, We are very upset to learn your visit was poor as you found the bed uncomfortable.You were in room 35 on our hilltop property. A check of the records showed me the mattresses in the room were last replaced in 2013 and are in good order. We also checked the box spring to see if a problem existed since...
