I grew up camping and staying in mom n pop motels. I was anxious for my kids to get this experience. The rooms are nicely updated with a beauitful view of the lake. The boys enjoyed taking out the peddle boat after a long day of following daddy around the Baseball Hall of Fame. They have a light continental breakfast... More

Our room was nice and clean with new carpet. The large picture window overlooked Lake Otsego and couldn't have been prettier. After spending a long morning at the Hall of Fame we spent the afternoon in the back yard enjoying the view and the comfortable seating. We were very happy with the location. It was a short 5 miles to... More

The Hickory Grove is a great hotel to stay at while visiting Cooperstown and an excellent value. The owners have invested in the property and everything has been recently renovated. The location is quiet and you will get a good night's sleep. I was pleasantly surprised at the breakfast offerings. Great orange juice--not the watered down kind found elsewhere. Choice... More

Clean, comfortable rooms with great view of the lake. Tables and chairs for relaxing in the sun with grills available for a quick dinner as well. Near to attractions, but not in the thick of things so a quiet retreat. A good value. We would stay again.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Hickory Grove Inn. They have reasonable prices and nice views of the lake. Only 6 miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame, made for a quick drive to see Cooperstown. Room was clean and staff was friendly. we would most likely stay again.

When we were planning on visiting Cooperstown a year ago, this was the only hotel available for the dates we wanted. Now I understand. Cooperstown has NO and I mean NO Chain hotels or restaurants. Everything is family owned. So with that said, we didn't have much of a choice on where to stay. This is a motor inn. The... More

hgmi09, Owner at Hickory Grove Motor Inn, responded to this review

Thank you, JKKTEXAS, for reviewing our establishment. Our town, Cooperstown, does not have chain hotels on Lake Otsego because our town wants to keep its small quaint town feel and therefore we only have family owned hotels and restaurants in our town limits. We do realize our rooms are on the smaller size but we have updated every detail in... More

Not a fancy place, but clean, quiet, comfortable, and very pleasant staff. Small shower but the bathroom was spotless. Very convenient to Glimmerglass. Nice view of the lake and some chairs in back to view it. Reasonable rates in an area with some very expensive places! We will definitely stay there again.

On the plus side it is inexpensive, has a great view of the lake and mountains, and the staff is friendly. On the down side it looked like it had not been dusted in months. There were webs all over the ceiling fan and we killed several ants in the bed. The desk clerk gave the excuse that it is... More

Thank you for your review of our establishment. Our housekeeping staff takes great pride in providing clean rooms every day for our guest. We have our place sprayed and pest controlled every spring. The guest did make us aware of the ants in the room which we checked out to find very few ants that could have come from leaving... More

This motel is the perfect place to stop when you are in Cooperstown. It is about 5 miles out of town with a drive along Lake Otsego on route 80. It is clean, comfortable, has Wifi, flat screen/cable TV (with many stations including the Mets), a small refrigerator and a gorgeous view of the lake. You can easily stay here... More
