We had a terrific experience at the Tunnicliff Inn during our trip to Cooperstown to see my nephew play baseball at Dreams Park. The location was ideal. A wonderful restaurant is located within the hotel (had dinner there twice), other restaurants, shops, drugstore, Baseball Hall of Fame, Wax museam, etc., are all within a very comfortable -- meaning short-- walking distance.
We did have a car to drive over over to Dreams Parks (about a 10 min. drive or so). We wanted to be close to the action but still have some distance between us and 2,000 plus twelve year old boys and the rest of their family members.
Tom (the Manager- actually he seems to wear the hat of many different roles) was an extremely gracious host. I was a bit saddened to see the negative comments one reviewer made about Tom. Obviously, he (or she) isn't that good of a judge of other peoples' personalities. After spending 4 nights there at the inn and seeing Tom in action, one can see that is just the way Tom is --- helpful, informative, and very accommodating. We thought he was a Great Manager and a delightful person.
This was our first time there and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Yet, if you are like me and don't like stairs...do what we did and book a room on the first level. The price for the Executive King Room was over $200 plus tax (end of the high season--baseball tournament was going on) but was worth every penny to be able to see my nephew "in his glory " play ball in Cooperstown.
Would I stay there again? In a heartbeat!
