We stayed here for a couple of nights recently, as we toured the Cooperstown area. We found it convenient to nearly everything the town has to offer. It is run by a lovely young couple who have done a great deal to improve the property in the 3 years they have had it. And we found it to be very... More

Reminds me of somewhere Don Draper would have stayed at on his cross-country trip in the last season of Mad Men. Slightly refreshed early '60s motel. It was fine for the money but also featured a giant crack down the wall of our room. Far from any restaurant or store but its main selling point may be its seclusion overlooking... More

Hi Dave, If ONLY Don Draper had slept here! ;) Thank you for staying with us and for reviewing your experience. We're the first motel up the lake from town, so 3.5 miles from the Village. The nearest restaurant is about 1.5 miles down the lake from us towards town. You are certainly correct in assuming that we highlight the... More

July in Cooperstown is busy with the activities centered on the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Glimmerglass Opera festival. Basic breakfast offerings, free wifi, and water sports equipment are nice amenities. A number of people used the picnic tables on the grounds. At checkin, staff thoughtfully provided local tips and pointers.

From where did those 4 star reviews come? In our room there was dust upon entrance, carpet laid over old carpet, a toilet which did not work properly (we had to keep their plumbers friend in our room for the entire stay), shower water temperature which varied from desired temperature to extreme hot, bathroom the size of a closet, almost...

We had a great visit. I'm a little torn in rating the inn because I don't want to mislead anyone. I give it a high rating on "experience" and amenities - the motel room itself would rate a bit lower. Overall and excellent hotel for a family visit to Cooperstown. My kids loved it. We were in Cooperston for the... More

My husband and I stayed here for only one night and we were not disappointed. The room was clean and we had a beautiful view of the lake.

A little overpriced for the age of the hotel, but lake views are wonderful. Quiet and serene. Convenient to town and restaurants. Clean rooms and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Continental breakfast is minimal but adequate.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Terrace Motor Inn. We loved that it overlooked the beautiful Otsego Lake, and was distant enough from Cooperstown to be peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed trying the stand-up paddle boards and paddling on the lake each evening we were there. We really appreciated and enjoyed the free use of the equipment. Our room... More
