A prime vacation spot for over a century-the Half Moon Motel Cottages are located where a grand hotel stood from 1880 until 1924 the New Hotel Weirs. Like long ago-the train station and cruise pier are very close nearby. Guests can enjoy swimming in the king-size pool-or at the public beach just a short walk down the boardwalk. Day or night-shopping-dining and amusements are steps away. From July 3rd through Labor Day-there s also free entertainment on the boardwalk fireworks-concerts-and square dancing. In early June-Weirs Beach is home to the world famous Laconia Motorcycle Week rally-3rd largest in the USA with 350-000 in attendance. Other events of significant interest to visitors include Nextel Cup races in July and September at the nearby New Hampshire International Speedway-and early Augusts Soul Fest at the nearby Gunstock recreation area. All units have a magnificent scenic view of Lake Winnipesaukee-and include CCTV-W/W carpeting-AC-heat-and access to an icemaker. The comfortable cottages all have cathedral ceilings-ceiling fans-and a shower. Large cottages have kitchenettes and either a Shared Balcony or a Screened-in Porch-while small cottages have refrigerators and an Open Porch. The modern motel units all have maid service and a full bath. Upper Balcony units may rent an optional full kitchen-while Lower Balcony units come with a refrigerator. Guests needing more space may rent a Large Two Room Cottage-which has one bedroom with one queen or king bed-and a living room with one or two double beds. Or-they may rent two adjacent Motel Upper Balcony units-which can be connected through the full kitchen-which is in-between the two units. Family operated since 1957-with friendly service and reasonable rates-the Half Moon Motel Cottages is the ideal location to stay in Weirs Beach. Property closed from 20OCT to 01MAY.

Half Moon?

Half moon? That's all it gets. Very small room, no place for luggage, laptop or even sit down. Not clean, with debris on the floor and spider webs on the wall. Better stay away from it.

OK stay

I was pleasantly surprised when we first entered our cabin, however we eventually discovered a leftover plate of food, from the previous guests I would assume, in the microwave. We didn't find the plate until the night before we checked our or we would have NOT stayed for the full two nights we had planned. The bedrooms and bathrooms appeared to be well kept, but the kitchen on the other hand, yikes. Crumbs inside the cabinets and fridge, and lets not forget the mystery leftovers!

Cruise Across the Way

We stayed at this hotel to go on the cruise and not have to drive home that night. The walk was nice and short. The room was big. The beds were fairly small and not very comfortable. The room was ordinary, tv was small, micro, and small fridge was a plus.

Half Moon Cottage

Hotel was exactly what I was looking for. Right in the heart of Weirs Beach in Laconia NH. There is a bunch to do right around the hotel and a great jumping off point for various attractions in the area. Stayed in one of the 1 bdr cottages. Good for a getaway and kid friendly.

Nothing special

Half Moon Motel, located on a hill a few steps from the water, is about as average as it gets. The room works for sleeping and unwinding, and that's about it. The beds are comfortable and clean, although who knows what's lurking under the surface. The bathroom is clean, but the sink is out in the room. The closet in the corner had some kind of leak, so the management put a dehumidifier in the room. While that might seem odd, it keeps the whole room drier than the outside air. Speaking of air, the AC in the room was great. Didn't smell musty and the air was cold. The window shades were good, although the slats on the door were broken, which let in a lot of light early in the morning. Overall, it's just an average motel with what you'd expect for a budget place. Nothing special, but far from awful.

In the middle of the party

If you are looking to stay in the midst of the activity, this is the place: live music, fireworks, a half block to the beach with its boardwalk. If you are looking for a quiet New Hampshire get away, this is not the place!!
