Pros: clean, quiet,close to town, friendly staff, beautiful view Cons: small, older rooms, small tv that can only be viewed lying on the bed, only 2 outlets in the room for device charging, no security latch on door, limited breakfast served too late at 8am since we needed to leave early It was ok since we were only there overnight.

Loved our short stay. Room fit our needs and the view was beautiful. Only down side, room 7 doesn't make the range for their wifi or I would have 5 starred this motel. Clean, quiet, close to everything otherwise

This motel is about three miles outside of downtown Cooperstown and provides a serene, incredible counterpoint to a Baseball Hall of Fame visit. We just spent five days there with our little leaguer ten year old and turned it into a family vacation. Yeah, the baseball stuff, but also the Farmer's Museum, Fenimore Art Museum (AMAZING), Erie Canal Cruise, Herkimer... More

I was here for the Ommegang brewery and weekend getaway from NYC. The owner was extremely helpful and recommended 2 restaurants. I tried 2 restaurants and they were super great. The water pedal boat is free, which I enjoyed a lot in the morning with my wife. Thanks much!

We stayed at Terrace Motor Inn when we went to visit my daughter at SUNY Oneonta in October. I had a change of plans and traveled with my sister instead of my husband and they were nice enough to accommodate us by changing my reservation from a king bed to two full size beds.

Great little place with a terrific view of the lake. Just outside of Cooperstown this little gem was just what we needed. Nice old school vibe, and the ladies at rhe front desk were very nice and helpfull. Would definitely come back here.

The hotel brought back memories of when I went to the Catskill with my parents. The room was clean, we slept well and had a beautiful view of the lake. You can hear the people next door but it is an old motor inn and that was part of the charm, if that makes any sense.
