A group of us stayed at the Half Moon for the 2014 Laconia Bike Week event and rented 3 cabins and 2 hotel rooms. The cabins are showing their age, and the individual bathrooms are very small. Tall people beware when sitting down! The showers pointed at your head and didn't adjust down. However the cabins were clean, dry, and comfortable.
One of the people in our party rented the hotel room with a kitchen, paying extra for access to the locked kitchen. When they went make breakfast they found the dishes were covered in thick dust and mouse droppings. This was reported to the staff and they stopped over right away to take action.
All in all, the staff was very willing to fix any issues we had right away. I would be willing to come back and stay there again. I know the economy is tough on businesses lately, but if possible they could really give the cabin bathrooms and motel rooms a good make over.
This place is walking distance to everything in town, you really can't get any closer. Down side is trying to get in and out of town during bike week can be interesting for sure. The police seem to block many of the village roads. We did feel safe during the event, lots of police everywhere and not as many trouble makers as I thought there would be.
A tip for the Half Moon staff.. if you could cut down the sumac trees behind the pool it would really improve the view from the cabins.
