This is an older, family-run hotel that we found because we rolled into Cooperstown too late to pay $300/night for a hotel - they were all sold out! We were grateful to find a clean, quiet, budget place to rest for the night. The bathroom was bigger than my NYC kitchen! I didn't find this place particularly charming, nor did... More

A simple 1950s-style motel. Rooms spare but clean. Bathrooms tiny but tub in all rooms. Free wi-fi access in every room; cell phones work outside of rooms if not in them. Every room has mini-fridge. The husband-wife couple who owns the motel are very nice, friendly but not intrusive. Six of us have stayed there in 4 rooms for many... More

I've been staying at Village Motel every summer for the last five years. The owners are just a delight! The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location just perfectly distant from Cooperstown, Utica and Sharon Springs/Cherry Valley! I highly recommend this relaxing motel!!!

I booked this room before finding it on this site and really enjoyed my stay. I was surprised such a small town had more than one motel and that this one ranked lower, reviews on other booking sites favored this motel quite well. Beds bathroom and desk were what I expected, nice and clean. HDTV mounted so it was a... More

This is an older vintage strip motel. The room is small, but is clean and has been painted. I would have rated it a 3, except for the rather overpowering odor of mold. We chose this motel for its location 25' from Cooperstown. We paid more 33% more here than we did for a larger, much nicer room in Hyde... More

I was surprised to find a wall mounted HD TV and free high speed wifi in this small motel and I'm quite happy that I did. The place seems to be family owned and the owners were happy to provide me with the wifi password and checked in with me to make sure it was going at a comfortable speed.... More

Suited our purposes very well for visit to Cooperstown and area. The park across the street from the motel was good for a bonus free concert one evening. Although the air conditioner was a bit noisy this didn't bother me very much and did not detract from my enjoyment.

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!
