“cooper inn not so great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2004

We just returned from a trip to cooperstown new york and stayed at the cooper Inn. The staff was pleasant enough at check in but than we never saw them again!! It was very impersonable and they did not go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms were small and though advertised as recently renovated they were shabby. The paint was peeling, the carpets worn and the decorations were sparse. The furniture was department store issue like you would see at a Howard Johnsons. The breakfast was a continental breakfast and nothing special. There was toast, english muffins a few boxes of cereal and a bowl of fruit. The Inn offered none of the niceties that most b and b's offer- afternoon tea, coffee, cookies etc. I definitely think that this place was not that great and very over priced compared to other places we have stayed.

We have stayed at the Otesaga three times now. If you can afford it, by all means, stay at the Otesaga for at least two nights. Breathtaking views of the lake, great gourmet meals, beautifully decorated (and squeaky clean) accomodations await you. The hotel makes you feel like you are living in a different time. We love to sit at night in the soothing rockers on the back portico and watch the lights on the lake. It is so romantic. And we even take our five children with us! Not to mention the fitness room...it is perfect. We don't play golf but there is a golf course just steps away from the front door. The service is impeccable. What more can I say. The Otesaga is my favorite place to stay.
