We booked a room here based on the good reviews and they were right on the mark. If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, or fancy place to stay, this isn't it. What you get at this fine old school motor inn is a clean, comfortable, reasonably priced room, hosted by friendly, welcoming people. The room may look like... More

We love this little lakeside motel near Cooperstown. Lovely dock where you can watch the water and rent a small boat. Nice and helpful staff. Limited breakfast and very thin walls, yet comfortable and clean with lovely views and an outdoor pool. Good value overall.

The place was built in the 60's but well kept. All of the views are amazing. Some of them have sliding doors and you overlook the lake. I highly recommend the Terrace Motor Inn. The owners are onsight and their employees are very friendly and helpful as well. You are only 4 miles from Cooperstown.

First off, I want to say that the owner of this hotel is the nicest and most accommodating person I have ever encountered in this business. Veronica truly went out of her way to make everything perfect for our overnight stay. We arrived too late to enjoy all the amenities this hotel had to offer. …we did enjoy the beautiful... More

First, this place is about 3 miles up Rt. 80 from town along the lake. The rooms & grounds with swimming pool(didn't use) have fantastic views of the Lake. It was cheaper than many right in town or for the more modern hotel chains on the southern approaches(Rt. 28). Also, the entire room was VERY CLEAN. But I have to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Terrace Motor Inn! We so enjoyed chatting with you and your wife and we are delighted that you noticed how much attention we pay to the extreme cleanliness of our property - it's certainly a priority.

Don't come to the Terrace Motor Inn and expect five stars or you'll be disappointed. It is a fairly typical 1960's motel with some special features. It's very, very clean which is great. Veronica, the owner, is absolutely charming and accommodating -- what a pleasure to deal with. The view (from every room) of the lake is amazing -- like... More

It was a pleasure to meet your husband and you and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! We certainly do want our prospective guests to know that we are a small, quaint Motor Inn so we appreciate you mentioning that in your review!

Our GPS took us from I-90 down some little back country road, and it was late at night, so we were a little concerned about what we were getting ourselves into. We were more than pleasantly surprised with the Terrace Motor Inn. We were in town to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. The motel is close to trolley parking,... More

My girlfriend and I took a vacation to Cooperstown, NY to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. We stayed at the Terrace Motor Inn. While the weather didn't hold up, the customer service was great and the accommodations were comfortable. The couple the runs the Inn are very hospitable and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

We couldn't be happier to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! You both were such troopers about the less-than-desirable weather and we had such a great time chatting with the two of you.
