Need hotel recommendation going towards Niagra....

Where can we stay that is a little bit outside Cooperstown towards Niagra Falls?

Will drive a bit to get out of Cooperstown and stay over and then drive the rest of the way to Niagra the next day.

My favorite way to go to Buffalo/Niagara is via Rte 20. How far outside of Cooperstown do you want to be lodging? Schuyler Lake at 8 minutes, Richfield Springs at 16 minutes, or Bouckville or Cazenovia at between an hour and two hours away.? It's cheaper at the Richfield end and pricier at the Cazenovia end.

I suggest you drive towards the Thruway; this is the quickest route to Niagara Falls from Cooperstown. Utica is about an hour north; take 28 North to 5S West. An hour further down the Thruway will put you in Syracuse and you will be about 3 hours from Niagara Falls from there.
