This review is based on Cooperstown in summer. There is both lake view and access and it is close to town center. These are the nice qualities. This is a very basic and plain motel with very, very cheap furniture. Noisy and not much privacy. Room offers no amenities and water is incredibly soft; difficult to rinse soap and shampoo.... More

We stayed two nights while attending Glimmerglass operas. The hotel is easy to find, a clean and very quiet property with a 1960's or 70's feel. Rooms are adequate but spare, WiFi excellent. An outdoor pool is available roughly 20 feet up a grassy terrace, and various boats are available on the lake as well. We had a 2-bed room,... More

I stayed one night in order to attend a Glimmerglass Festival performance and was not impressed with the facility. I did enjoy the performance at Glimmerglass. It is extremely difficult to find reasonably priced short stay accommodations in the area since most places are booked for weekly stays by families with kids in baseball clinics and tournaments. I booked at... More

My daughter and I stayed a single night as we visited the Baseball Hall of Fame. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be active. The motel is next to the lake and provides FREE use of a paddle boat, canoe and multiple stand up paddleboards. There were also a couple guest fishing (with some luck... More

We decided on a last minute trip to Cooperstown Dreams Park to watch our Grandson play baseball and were pleasantly surprised to find a room available at the Terrace Motor Inn. Veronica (super friendly) and her husband have purchased this in the past couple of years and have been upgrading! Bathroom was new! Bed was comfy! Very Clean! No dust... More

This cute, little motel has stunning lake views! The rooms are dated, but very clean and comfortable. It's very peaceful if you have good neighbours. The first night we stayed, there was a lot of noise coming from people outside partying, but the second night was much quieter. There is a pool and they have kayaks and paddle boats available...

This is a older motel that has been well maintained. It is about 3 miles from the downtown area. It has great views of the local lake which add a nice touch to the place. The owner and workers really know how to service their guest. Will definitely stay there again.

No doubt the views from the hotel are beautiful. It's a quiet place outside of Cooperstown. It's very clean. Beds are okay, but sure could use some new pillows. Breakfast provided is basically toast and bagels. There's is a pool that looks really nice however we didn't use it. When you enter the room it's a flashback to about 1950,... More

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.

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.
