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

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

This place is wonderful, has that old school motel charm, yet the rooms are cozy with newly rennovated bathrooms. We stayed in room # 3 not because that's BABE RUTH'S number, it just worked out that way. We had a great view of Lake Otsego from our window. It's a short drive to Cooperstown main street say 10 minutes or... More

It's a very good value. Our room was very clean and my wife and I slept very well. It's a friendly place and it was very quiet.We were satisfied for the price we had paid, which was 90$. We enjoy everything in cooperstown. The lake is beautiful, as the people in New York state. We will comeback.

This hotel was perfect for our budget. Don't expect anything fancy. The TV's are tube (not flat screen) the comforters are those 80's floral itchy things that hotels got rid of years ago, the door locks are real lock and key (something I haven't experienced in the states) and the beds were stiff. The hotel has lake rights, you have... More

Hickory Grove is an inexpensive little motel on a beautiful lake near Cooperstown. The staff was very accommodating when we asked for advice on restaurants and extra pillows. This is not a fancy place, but you can't beat if for the price.
