I was so encouraged when I booked this room, and was so disappointed in the end. The picture online looking up at the motel is so misleading since it does not show the well traveled road that runs right through the center of it! The hotel sits up on the hill, then there's the road, then there's the lake. And...

We are very sorry you did not find your stay to your liking. I do wish you had the time to share your thoughts before you left. We may be many things but misleading is one we strive to avoid at all costs. I studied the pictures on our website and carefully observed the road separating our main property from...

We were visiting Cooperstown for the first time and were looking for a nice family style hotel/motel to visit. We couldn't have made a better choice in Cooperstown. The Lake View is true to its name; it offers a beautiful, scenic view of the lake. It was like going back into the 1960's at a small resort type hotel. It...

This motel is across the street from Lake Otsego and provides numerous places to sit and view the gorgeous lake. Rooms here are somewhat inconsistent in what they offer. Our first room had a shower - no tub; no hangers, no curtain on the bathroom window (which faced a wooded area), no hair dryer.. Furnishings were worn. There was a...

Sue, first we want to thank you fro your comments. Guest feedback is the fuel for continued improvement. From time to time when we experience more than usual rain combined with our lake location some rooms can, unfortunately, have a musty sense. We work hard at preventing this but occasionally it cannot be avoided. We are happy we were able...

The Lakeview Motel has a lovely setting overlooking Otesago Lake. We stayed there on our recent trip to Cooperstown. Five minutes into town and excellent accommodations. Bernie and Bob could not have been nicer.

I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with a one night trip to Cooperstown. I found this hotel and saw they offered a Baseball Package which included the room for one night, two tickets to the Hall of Fame, a $50 certificate to one of two restaurants and two Lake View coffee mugs. We arrived early around noon (check in...

The Lake View Motel was a lovely experience. The front desk manager was very helpful, suggesting places to eat and filling us in on the history of the area. The room was clean and there were plenty of towels. We visited at the end of the season, so it was rather quiet. We walked down to the little beach area,...

Stayed overnight on way home from family vacation. Incredible, from the moment we checked in, late, until the moment we checked out. The rooms and grounds were extremely clean.
