Reading some of the reviews, you might think that this is a charming retro place. While the outside looks quite charming and retro and well-maintained, inside the rooms have not been updated in more than a generation! There was a small extremely noisy air conditioner, so we had the choice to sweat in the summer heat or toss and turn... More

Excellent nostalgic atmosphere and cozy rooms. My friends and I come every year for all the cultural attractions in the area. Accommodations are well kept by a fine, friendly family. Can't wait to return!

Friendly family-run old-style motel- no frills ( shampoo, hair-drier) but nice new windows to open and quiet setting- in town. Convenient to breakfast spot at Tally-Ho. Across from the central park in town. Hope they manage to make it all non-smoking rooms soon- like all inns should be. Pricey for what you get- but maybe inflated over the Fourth Holiday.

Not sure what other reviewers expected from this place, perhaps expectations were too high. We found the room–and bathroom–very clean. Motels of this vintage usually have small bathrooms so space is at a premium, but you don't feel cramped. The bed was comfortable if not luxurious. It's an old motel so things like air conditioning are there but as add-ons;... More

Very disappointed. Room was very musty smelling and black mold on the window curtain in the bathroom. Lots of hair (not ours) in the tub. A cold summer eve and no heat. No shampoo and no hangers for our clothes. All this and expensive. Will look elsewhere in the future.

A quaint, dated-looking motel from the outslde, the room was simple and clean. There were no luxuries, insufficient towels for the three of us, but we thought it was fine for one night. That was until we got into bed. Truly, these were the hardest beds I have ever experienced. The pillows were flimsy little things. Nobody slept well. I... More

The Village Motel in Richfield Springs, NY was a poor choice. None of the usual amenities--no shampoo, no lotion, no coffee, no ice,1 skimpy bath, washcloth, and hand towel apiece, no iron, no ironing board, no shelf in the bathroom with room for toiletries, no kleenex, three hangers in the clothes alcove. We didn't expect a swimming pool or a... More

This was one of the least expensive options for lodging near Cooperstown (20 minute drive) and was ok for the money. Clean rooms and the AC worked like a champ (thank God!). The decor probably hasn't been updated since the 50's, including the sign welcoming you to the motel ("TV", "Free in room phones!"). It was like staying at grandma's... More

I came here to upstate New York after the floodings in near-by areas. We first came to fountain view- but their cleanliness was terrible, there were small ants everywhere, and I had found a small garden snake inside my room in the corner of the bathroom! After this horrible experience, I went to The Village Motel- and everything was in... More
