Was great location and great stay! I highly recommend

Great place !!!! - location is perfect- steps from the main drag and a short walk to the beach - rooms were clean and spacious- water pressure in the shower very good - staff was friendly and helpful The view was amazing - looking out over the lake Parking was directly outside our room- so convenient !!! The pool was clean and a big hit with everyone- great size too !!! We loved it so much I decided to stay an extra night and have already tried my to rearrange my schedule to go back again Great experience and great family getaway !! Safe - comfortable and convenient

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in one of the large cottages. Very clean and spacious! The pool was also well maintained and there was a beautiful view from the property. We will be back!

Check in is 3pm check out is 10am and it was $196 for 17 hours...that jist seem absurd to me It was very clean but also very dated The pool was nice but not as big as it looks in the pics. The view was beautiful though... Even if we weren't there for very long to enjoy it

Right on the strip, beautiful views and lots to do

Great and convenient to all areas of Weirs Beach. Staff was accommodating. Check out time us a little too early although they let us park there on checkout day for as long as we wanted. Would return.

What I liked about this property was it was like visiting a place in the 70’s which I thought was very charming. It was very clean but a little dated which is completely fine. What I didn’t care for was the bar walking distance from us that played live music till 3:00 am. But if your into that, then that’s great! It was also walking distance from the Weirs Beach pier, which again was a plus. But there are no Black Out shades in these rooms so at 5:00 am your up. So another minus.

Location was close to everything. Enjoyed our stay, but the room could have used a good dusting and the bed was a bit hard.

Just a spur of the moment escape to New Hampshire. The place was pricey and I don't mind paying as long as I get something for the $$$. The place was way to small. Extremely disappointed with the bed, valley in the middle. The tv in the bedroom also sported 12 channels??? The bathroom shower would have been good for me when I was a teenager, a little tough to move around in now that I'm in my 50's. The staff was friendly and the pool was clean and cool...

It was exactly what my brother and I needed. We went to a concert and just needed a place to sleep and shower. This place met both of those needs and it had a nice in ground pool for swimming. If staying in the area again would definitely consider staying here again.

Great location, friendly staff, great price. I would stay again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Very nice inside cottage, lots to do within walking distance on Weirs Beach, could not have been happier.

Location was good but very noisy. The cottage was fairly clean but very out dated. Hard to access the cottage because of a hill with no stairs. Not all cottages are easily assessable.

Room was not as advertised-the pull out sofa was a futon and very uncomfortable to sit on as a sofa. The bathroom had no ventilation and the only window was not properly attached. The entire sash was removed to provide ventilation in the very TINY bathroom. The power to the unit was VERY limited, signs indicated that the coffemaker and microwave were not to be used at the same time. The counter with the sink was sagging.

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback. Although the issue of dusting has been reviewed with the housekeeping staff, it is difficult to specifically address your other concerns without knowing which unit you were in
