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 :)

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... More

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)... More

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... More

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... More

Room was super clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Near the water but not lakefront. Also I would classify this definitely as a motel, NOT a hotel. So it is September now, and even though I stayed there a mere month ago, I can barely remember it. This is a nice clean place as I have stated, but not... More

Stayed only one night for a wedding, very nice location just a short walk to Main St and the Baseball hall of Fame. Very clean and well taken care of. Nice to be next to the lake. Wished that the fan in the bathroom was on it's own switch. Did not try the restaurant or the lake tour boat which... More

Love a new building that's so clean but small parts kept this from getting the best rating for that style motel. The free wifi barely worked on one device, a second device couldn't use it at all. Whomever designed the bathrooms should be fired.

I went along with my boyfriend for Labor Day weekend as that's when his birthday is. It's a quaint place located right on the lake with the ferry dock right outside the restaurant which is attached to the hotel itself. Our hotel room was actually decently sized and very clean! The bathroom was stark white and again, extremely clean. We... More

“Second floor rooms have a nice patio with chairs and a table and outstanding view of the lake. Be sure and take the lake cruise.”
