“Like Staying on a Houseboat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

This hotel is has a fabulous location, right on Otsego Lake. Our room (#31) was right on the lake. A tiny dock separates that side of the building from the water, so when you are seated at the table by the window, it looks like the lake comes right up to your room. So relaxing and peaceful. They also have Adirondack chairs outside of the hotel that look out onto the lake. The complimentary breakfast was very good. The hotel is located right at the site of the Glimmerglass boat dock, and is only a couple of blocks from downtown. The only drawback at all was that the hotel wants you to have your car out of their lot by checkout time, which is 11 a.m. Parking is an issue in Cooperstown in the summer, so plan accordingly.

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring the Baseball Hall of Fame, etc. The location is fantastic, a 2 block walk to the Hall and yet off the beaten track so it is quiet. Right on the lake the views are wonderful. We had a room on the second floor with a shared balcony/lake view. The restaurant is good, get complimentary breakfast. Boat rides are available and we received a voucher for 1 free ride. Ran out of time so couldn't do it but would like to! The rooms are very clean (yeah!), comfortable and quiet - not luxurious but just right. TV is not HD but so much outside to enjoy so I didn't care. Would definitely recommend and would go back.

This is our second time staying at the Lake Front Hotel - and it will continue to be our go to place. Tulsa and James go out of their way to make your trip the absolute best it can be. The location is perfect - wake up in the morning to a mist hanging over the lake, enjoy a short two block walk to the Baseball Hall of Fame, return for a leisurely meal on the deck, before riding the Glimmerglass cruise. Have a drink by the lake, sleep in a quiet comfortable room, and start all over the next day. Cooperstown is small town American - looks and feels like a Norman Rockwell painting - The Lake Front Hotel is gem located on Lake Otsego - Recommend it!!

Room Tip: The upper story rooms allow you to see past the restaurant deck,

The Lake Front has a beautiful view of Lake Otsego and is only two blocks from Main Street....great location!! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. They have a restaurant which is very convenient, has good food and a bar. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Cooperstown.

Staff very nice but not especially friendly. Room clean and very plain. Great location at lake front and easy two block walk to Baseball Hall of Fame and multiple restaurants. Free one hour boat ride and breakfast included. TVs are not HD. Rate a bit pricy.

Room Tip: A few rooms are ground floor only; otherwise rooms are in two story buildings

We enjoyed our stay at the Lake Front Hotel. The rooms are basic, but clean. We were here two nights and ate at the restaurant on the grounds 3 times. Food was great. We walked to the Baseball Hall of Fame. So nice not to have to find parking. The staff at the restaurant and the lady at the desk in the lobby were very helpful and nice. Would definitely stay here again. I gave it a 3 overall rating only because of the smallness of the room and the lack of a mini-fridge or microwave.

Very nice hotel. But when I come back from an all day having fun the last thing I want to do is Watch TV on an 90'0 TV It was old my kid said what is that. . This is 2014 Lets get a flat screen. Every Hotel has one that I have been too. Next time I stay here I will bring my own TV (Flat Screen). Other than that had an all some stay. I will love to stay there again.
