We stayed at the Lake View Motel in October for my birthday weekend. The view of the lake was very nice. The motel was decent. The WIFI was inadequate as was the cable tv. The room was clean. Worth the price. Not too far out of town.

The location of this motel is close to downtown Cooperstown with a breathtaking view of the lake. The rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The office personnel were very courteous and helpful. We would definitely stay there if we visit this area again.

The lake view motel was a decent place to stay for a Cooperstown visit. While it's not in Cooperstown proper, it's just a 10 minute drive down the highway.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lake View Motel. GPS didn't find it as well as we had hoped, but inquiring at a friendly place down the road helped us get there. If you don't have Verizon, you will not have cellular reception here. We typically got it 1-2 miles on the road towards town. Really enjoyed the relaxing lake... More

Thank you for your comments. You are so right as GPS in our area is not always on the ball and we wish the various cell phone providers would get on the job and pick up the lake places.
