“We Love the Lake Motel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

This was our 4th or 5th visit to the Lake Motel and the best one yet! We arrived in the rain but everything looked beautiful. It had been 2 years since we had been there and all the rooms were done over with new mattresses, carpets, paint etc. We had a lake front room in the main building. Wonderful view of the lake, gazebo and dock. A new two story building had been built since our last visit and since the motel was not full due to the predicted rain all weekend the owner, Dave, asked us if we would like to move into that building. We were with another couple so we moved to two adjoining rooms each with a kitchenette and fridge! Awesome!!! A very large bathroom all handicapped accessible. We couldn't have been more comfortable. The only thing I would suggest would be more counter space in the bathroom which certainly has room for it. Over all our visit was wonderful. The owners are more than helpful and will get you anything you may need. We love the location right down the road from all the quaint shops and restaurants. We can't wait to return!! Thanks Dave!!

Stayed here for several early-June nights. The owners are indeed friendly and helpful; our room, clean and comfortable; and the scenery from just outside the room, quite nice. The docks and beach are on the property and entail an easy five-minute walk. For that matter, how many other motels offer lake activities? All in all, a most enjoyable stay. The Kranicks

Praise for the Lake Motel of Wolfeboro, N.H. Located on a picturesque waterfront and within walking distance to shops and restaurants it has offered us many memorable vacations.
We enjoyed the newly renovated room, the relaxing atmosphere, and the friendly proprietors. Looking forward to our next stay. The Cusano's

If this place was advertised as a camp - it would be great! But here are some things I would expect in the room of even the most basic hotel/motel:

Windows that can be used to look outside (even when wet)
Heat
Sealed walls
Enough wattage to put on the heat and a hairdryer/curling iron/straightener at the same time
Refrigerator
Iron/Ironing board
(hair) Conditioner
Hairdryer
A properly installed tub

All of the above was lacking at the Lake Motel. We were in town for a wedding, and were "upgraded" to a lake view room. The lake was BEAUTIFUL and if you could overlook the mudslick/hill to it - our room had a great view. Unfortunately the dated jalousie windows, combined with the screen and rain, wouldn't allow us to see anything out the window (and the lake was a ways away).

The room we were in was unheated. Sure, I am sure memorial day can be warm in NH some years, but it was 30 degrees, and there was a space in the wall (to the outside) where the air conditioner was installed. We did have a mini space heater... unfortunately we had to risk burning the whole place down to remain comfortable. I am pretty sure space heaters are not meant to heat rooms overnight, or when people aren't in them... and they were running in many of the rooms in the main hotel.

When I had my space heater plugged in at the same time as my hairdryer (which I brought myself thank goodness) - it blew a fuse for our room. Everything on the room ran with the light switch (including the clock... rendering it useless) - and when we reported the problem - the worker thought that perhaps we hadn't flipped the switch...

No fridge, ironing board, iron, hairdryer were to be found in our "upgraded" room.

A small bottle of shampoo was provided but no conditioner.

The tub was of the Bath Fitter Variety. While it was clean, it was improperly installed - it made it feel like you were showering on a sponge... squishing all around... gave my husband vertigo. Also the floor flooded every time someone showered (I am not sure where the water was coming from). There the molding on the floor of the bathroom was almost completely off (it was hanging on by a little bit) - exposing the wall to the flooding from the tub.

The beds (there were two in our room) - were both uncomfortable and VERY springy. While they had mattress pads and comforters, both were fairly thin (and without the heat... we could have used something more substantial).

With all this said - anyone from the hotel seemed nice enough - just certainly not a place I would choose to travel to again. I visited 3 other rooms. Two across the "parking lot" (swamped, mud hole), and one in the "new building." Like ours they were clean. Unlike ours they did have heat. The old building across the parking lot did have irons & fridges. The other furniture, while clean, was dated.

The new building certainly has newer furniture and includes small kitchenettes. Unfortunately - it seems like some shoddy workmanship/upkeep. The stair landings are plywood. My friends windowsill (with new windows) was COVERED in small bugs. With that said she paid $70 MORE (after talking to the man at the desk... he came down from $90 MORE) - for her room and while heat might have been nice - to pay 70 for it seems unreasonable. Unreal.

Again, this place was fine, passable, but I would not choose it, or choose to return to it. I feel like on the website the accommodations made to seem much more luxurious than was my experience.

Stayed here for my sons graduation from Brewster Academy. The Lake Motel was perfect in every way. It's located on a beautiful lake right in the center of picturesque Wolfeboro, NH. My room was clean, and up to to date. The owners were gracious and helpful to this good ole southern boy on his first trip to New England.
