My husband and I were looking for a quiet get-away and we found it at the Bayside Inn & Marina. Our mid-week two-night stay was very relaxing, as the marina and lakefront were not being used much. Our room was so clean, I didn't feel the need to wipe things down with antibacterial wipes as I do in most chain... More

We stayed here the beginning of this week for a family vacation in Cooperstown. I had looked it up previously on Tripadvisor and the previous reviews were right on. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was attentive, helpful and pleasant. My kids loved the beach and lake. Next time, I want to try a cabin. We were very... More

Stayed here in August 2014 and loved it. Very friendly people, spacious room, clean property inside and out. Great for traveling with a group since it has a "hospitality room" with tables and chairs, big tv, for hanging out and relaxing. Also has pool table, game room, lots of rocking chairs out front, and of course, the gorgeous Lake Otsego.... More

Our room on the second floor of the Inn was clean and spacious enough for four people, which makes Bayside Inn & Marina worthy of consideration. The location is also close enough to Cooperstown to make trips into town convenient, with the added benefit of a nice view of Lake Ostego. Unfortunately, the use of the lake doesn't seem as... More

Thank you will23ny for taking the time to review your stay and our property. I would like to take the time to respond to the issues that he was dissatisfied with. First, our shore line can't be enlarged unless we encroach on the property of our neighbors and I would assume that they would not be happy with that. In... More

Stayed here while visiting the HOF. It is about 10 minutes from the yellow lot. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room (#4) was nice and fit our need. We had a balcony but really didn't use it. If I was stay again, would probably skip it and take a room on the lower floor. The view from... More

It is important for travelers who are less than agile to realize that this property of motel rooms and cottages occupies a steep incline to Lake Otsego. Aged as I am, I was unable to negotiate the distance from my room near the highway to the the lake far below. Having said that, our room was large and very, very... More

Thank you MotherJoyce for taking the time to review your stay and our property. Bayside is located on 4 acres on Otsego Lake and the property is on an incline. We do realize that not everyone is agile enough to walk to the lake but there is a paved driveway and parking available at the beach so that all of... More

Wonderfully convenient motel/inn/cottages between Glimmerglass opera and Cooperstown. It has a small beach on the lake, and canoes and kayaks that are free for the first hour or so. Things to be aware of are the absence of breakfast facilities, and poor sound insulation between motel rooms and from the outside -- so if you have noisy neighbors or Harleys... More

Pros: Very comfortable beds/bedding; quiet; reasonably priced for location; convenient to Glimmerglass. Cons: Weak w-fi (very important for me), had to go outside for connection; room decor very plain, no charm, icy-white LED bulbs.

We didn't know this area at all and were unsure whether we should have booked a hotel nearer Cooperstown itself, but the Bayside Inn proved to be perfect. It's only about 15 minutes drive from the town and less to the trolley stop. This means that you are away from the crowds and can relax in a more peaceful environment.... More

Property was right on the lake, rooms were very clean, and it was a 5 min drive to trolley or 10 min drive to town. Water pressure in the showers was the only downside. Balcony had a very nice view of the lake.
