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!

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
