Following some great reviews about this motel on trip advisor I booked a nights stay at bayside inn and Marina . The room was a good size with 2 double beds Bathroom was a good size with tub / shower . The room and bathroom was very clean and shampoo and soap were provided The Inn has canoes and kayaks for use by customers , which we took advantage of. The lake that the Inn is on is beautiful and sparkling. The two women at the desk were very pleasant and helpful as to what was around in the local area. There is a game room for children and a sitting area for reading
There are cabins also for rent on the property. . Ask for a room with a view of the lake. Lovely.

The motel is a 10 minute ride from the center of Cooperstown and its location on Glimmerglass is accentuated by the back balcony view which is a wonderful touch. The room was clean,the staff friendly and helpful.

We stayed her for one night. I had messed up the reservation by a few days, and they actually honored it! Not many places would do that, I think. The rooms were clean, although not fancy, and I liked the shampoo/soaps they provided. We also appreciated the tea/coffee station in the lobby. The location was about 10-15 min outside of Cooperstown, but was a good site for exploring the area.

We would definitely stay there again in the future.

we rented a room for overnight visit to Baseball Hall of Fame. Very clean and nice place to stay with game room and other free stuff. I thought the beds were very comfortable and nothing beats the view of the lake. Ask for a room in the back for best view. cottages are even closer. It is only about 15 minutes from Main Street in Cooperstown so the drive was nothing and very easy to find as it is right on route 80.

Room Tip: ask for a back room for a view of the gorgeous lake, a longer visit may be worth a cottage

I only stayed here for one night and I found the Inn to be very nice, spotless and the scenery was beautiful. The only problem that I had was that I was staying in one of the lower level rooms and you could hear all of the movement coming from upstairs and the noise kept my boyfriend awake. The guests above us were not loud in any way, the problem was that you could hear them moving and walking around the room. I would definately stay there again...I would just stay in an upstairs room. The coffee in the main office was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony room...quieter

Game Room! Good times. We stayed for one night and it's only 7 miles from the restaurant Alex and Ika which has amazing food. Room was clean and big enough for four people to feel comfortable. Wish we had more time, I would've liked to take advantage of the free kayaks and the beautiful lake!

This was our first time at Bayside and we would come again. We stayed in the motel, which was clean, a nice size and had a balcony where you could see the lake through the tall pines. The staff was quite knowledgeable about local eateries and places to see. They did not provide a breakfast, but the room key did get 10% off a local restaurant right on the water. There was a small beach area, which was well kept and had picnic tables - a great place to spend family time.

Room Tip: We chose the top floor of the motel, it was very quiet.
