The Lake View Motel is one of the closest motels with lake access to Cooperstown (roughly 5 miles). From the outside it looked fine. that said, wish it were on the same side of State Hwy 80 as the lake. Comments:The parking lot should be paved; the stone lot is quite noisy. The views of Otsego Lake from across Hwy...

We are sorry your visit with us did not meet your expectations. The lake area is well maintained and offers swimming, paddle boats, fishing and the sun deck. There is the road separating the main property from the beach area but we cannot do anything to change that. We are pleased you found your room clean and comfortable. Had you...

Induction weekend fills up fast and most people don't understand the village of Cooperstown does not have hotels- so if you are considering going make your reservation ASAP -- your only other option will be Bed and Breakfasts -- the view is amazing - they have paddle boats and jet skis for use-- you stay in little room which are...

Quiet little spot on the lake. Swimming, fishing, paddle boating and sunbathing directly on the lake. Clean rooms, friendly staff and a great time. Less than 5 miles to HOF. Wish we had a little more time in Cooperstown to take advantage of the wonderful surroundings. We will be back!!!

I recently stayed at this so called Mobile AAA rated motel for seven nights with my family! I have 2 significant complaints. The beds were not stripped and changed with new linens and if you didn't have a bad back when you arrived you will when you leave! The mattresses seemed to be the same when I first stayed here...

Dear David J.L., We are truly sorry your stay with us was not up to your expectations. Please accept our apology. Our operating rules require the change of sheets every three days. Apparently, we somehow missed your room. No excuse we were to blame. If you had called this to our attention, we would have corrected the oversight immediately. Your...

I was in suite #2. I arrived Friday, July 11, and departed Monday, July 14, and not once did I hear my neighbors or noise from passing cars.

We were only fortunate enough to spend one night at Lake View, and we were pleasantly surprised the moment we walked in the room.
