The Village Motel is a typical 1950's motel. For everyone complaining about the odor...honestly, that's just the town (it was settled because of the sulfur springs, I believe). I've been through the town many times in the past few years. So, depending on temperature and wind direction, the village sometimes smells musty and faintly like rotten eggs (or, as my...

Passed through the area during the winter, may motels seemed closed along Rt. 20. This place was bright, the lady working the desk was very kind, and I had a very comfortable and warm room while it was -10 outside. Lots of channels on a flat screen TV that was wall mounted.

Nice and clean and tidy. Staff very helpful, decent wifi and in a good position in town. Local pub nearby gets busy and the Tally Ho restaurant next door looks basic but the food is very good both in quality and price. Would recommend if passing through.

Rural motels are often small, dark and damp, which made The Village Motel in Richfield Springs a pleasant surprise. The room was large and airy, there was no musty smell, and the bathroom fixtures and tiling were well above the norm for such places. At just under $100 U.S. it was a bit more expensive than most others, but it...

In the week before Labor Day everything around Cooperstown was about $200. This classic motel was a pleasant 20 minute drive away. The room was spotless. Windows on each side made for a pleasant cross breeze. The room had enough space for 2 queen beds, two chairs and hanging space plus desk with flat screen TV. The bathroom was clean...

This is a low-end motel, built in the 1950's. However, the rooms have been refurbished, including what appears to be new faucets in the bathroom, new mattresses, a flat screen tv, wifi, a microwave, and refrigerator. The towels and tissue are still low end, the air conditioner very loud, and no coffee maker. Still, the cost is the lowest in...

The room was cheaper than others in the area, and now we know why. The room smelled musty, the water came out brown when the shower was first turned on, very small soaps, cheap shampoo packets, no hair dryer. There was a very nice mini fridge and microwave and a wide variety of TV channels, if that's what you're looking...

This MOTEL is well situated on the main road between a diner and a gas station with a Stewarts. We had the room nearest the street and it was still very quiet. The room smelled a bit musty when we first got there but it was fine once you let it air out a bit. The appointments are adequate--there is...

Booked through Expedia in spite of the quoted $20.50 in taxes. Asked about the tax rate at check-in and was told tax on the room was $9.00. Front desk claimed additional amount was an Expedia fee. Further contact with Expedia revealed that they only post the rates and taxes quoted by the hotel, so they are charging Expedia users $11.50...

My sons and I stayed at the Village Inn overnight on a trip to Cooperstown. We stayed there on the weekend, when rooms in the area are in more demand, but this place was pricey for what we got. However, checking online, this was one of the least expensive, so it's a market driven economy in the region. Our rooms...
