My husband thought the bed was super comfortable. Older but usable bathroom. Not luxurious bathroom. The bad: I booked close to our travel date and oaid $400+ for... More

If you're headed to Cooperstown, you have to consider the Otesaga. It's a grand hotel that manages to maintain its historic charm without feeling old. They have kept up with the meeting and dining areas and added modern upgrades to the outside spaces - which are stunning. From the veranda with plenty of rockers overlooking the lake, to the green...

Old , but very charming hotel. When we were there hotel was very busy, however the size of the hotel made it seem like my wife and myself were the only ones there. Wonderful view of the lake lots of different places to eat.

This grande dame is a pleasure to visit and enjoy. The grounds are perfectly maintained, as are the buildings. The staff is attentive and friendly. We dined in the Glimmerglass Restaurant and the food and service were superb. Our accommodations were very comfortable. A true treasure.

We stayed two nights at this lovely property while attending a wedding in Cooperstown. The hotel was one suggested by the hosts of the wedding. What a beauty. We were told the hotel had just finished a major overhaul. The location of this gem is right on the beautiful lake with an incredible golf course attached to it. There is... More

Stayed here during a meeting my husband was attending. Fantastic hotel, beautiful views, very friendly staff. My husband became ill during our stay, and the staff sent up ginger ale and crackers to our room. Very nice gesture. Highly recommend this hotel.

A friend and client of mine decided to spend two nights in Cooperstown and visit the Hall of Fame. I booked (well in advance) two of the most expensive rooms for us on the fourth floor. As we went upstairs in the elevator, the bellboy told us that there was a fifth floor but the elevator did not go up... More

We stayed here by using an Amazon.com local deal, my husband and I, with our two boys, aged 13 and 9. We stayed in a double-queen room, and the room was small but clean and well-maintained, with a very nice television and a nice bathroom. This is not a modern hotel, with large rooms and big bathrooms, it is older... More
