Stayed here for a week while my son played at Dreams Park. I was in room #31. The view was beautiful from the room. The room is a little dated but very clean. The staff was wonderful and friendly. I gave it an overall rating of 4 because the beds would have used a little more updating. Other than that,...

We went here spur of the moment to see my nephew at Cooperstown. It's only 10 minutes from town. The room was definitely dated and a/c was eh. But it was clean. If you're a diva, find another place but you'll be paying alot more. The best part is the location though. It sits right on a lake and some...

Thank you for your comments. We hope your visit was good. We may be an older facility but everything is well maintained and the rooms are kept very clean. The lake as you point out is exceptional.

We called 2 hours before check in and said we were close by and wondered if our room was ready (Room #15 facing the Lake). We were informed by a very friendly lady that our room was indeed ready. We arrived, checked in and asked for places to eat. The woman in the office pulled out a map and pointed...

Perfect spot for a quick overnight stay. Beautiful view of lake Otsego. The rooms are small and dated but clean. The check in was easy and quick. The location to Cooperstown was perfect. The lake was very clean and refreshing.

We recently stopped in Cooperstown for a quick stop on our way to Niagara Falls. We needed a place to stay for the night that wasn't too expensive. We found many of the Inns and B & B's in town were quite pricey, and not really the environment we were looking for with older kids (21 & 13). The Lake...

This is a neutral review. While the room was a little bit on the shabby side, the beds were nonetheless comfortable. We did not have a "Lake View" from out room, but a very short walk across the road is a private little dock and beach area. This was lovely, We sat out until nightfall, enjoying the lake and views....

Jonathan, Thank you for your feedback. We need your comments so we can best serve all our guests. I feel like we earned a C plus. We do have some very good strong points and a few weaker ones. Admittedly it is not best if you need to stay in the room for a large portion of the day as...

Reviewed 18 July 2016

It is an old motel, but they do a good job of keeping it clean. The location is on the lake, and is about 6 miles north of downtown. The views are something. My only complaints involved limited Wi-Fi inside the room and a recliner that was broken. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I stayed at this gem for a local wedding. It is 6 miles north of downtown Cooperstown on Rt 20. The location is ideal- close enough to get to the center of town in 10 minutes but far enough way to be quiet. The staff is very friendly and treats you like family from the first greeting....

We got on trip advisor to find a place traveling from Vermont for the night. Family owned and operated. Very friendly, clean and fabulous views of Lake Otsego. Nothing fancy but clean and quiet. 6 miles from Cooperstown. Location was perfect for traveling into Cooperstown.
