“A fine stay”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

On a visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame I stayed here with my grandson. The room was VERY clean, there were plenty of towels, and the towels were fluffy. The two beds were very comfortable. The woman at the front office was pleasant and was willing to answer questions, assist, and make suggestions. The motel is 6 or 7 minutes from a parking lot where you can take a trolley bus into town ($2 for all day) and avoid trying to find parking in town during the day, and 10 minutes from Cooperstown.

This motel was surprisingly nice! The price was so low I didn't expect much. We stayed in a king sized room in the main building (over the lobby). The lobby is wan and inviting, the staff is friendly. There's a living room area where groups could gather and play board games or watch movies, and an arcade room. Our room had wine and chocolate waiting (both delicious - highly recommend the truffles!) And was spacious. There was a small beach we walked to and the lake was beautiful. They had kayaks but we didn't get the chance to take one out. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and even had toothpaste on hand when I realized I forgot ours! I highly recommend staying here, and we hope to go back again soon to stay longer than just the night so we can take advantage of all the great amenities! Also, it was only a few miles to Cooperstown, so super convenient if you're doing things in town.

Stayed here over night for a sister's trip to Cooperstown. Although this place is unassuming at first don't let that fool you. The view is absolutely beautiful! During check in the lady at the front desk was very welcoming, pleasant and informative. The room we stayed in was very neat and clean, not to mention the beds were very comfortable. Check out was just as pleasant as check in, with the added bonus of two very adorable and friendly dogs. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

We came to Cooperstown for a weekend baseball tournament. This hotel was located about 10 minutes from downtown. Our room was VERY clean and up to date. The wifi was a little weak, our room was on the lower level and I don't know if that's why. I had a small problem with a toilet that wouldn't stop running and when I called the desk, they sent someone right down to fix it. The staff was very friendly. The beach was small, but it was ok for the kids. They was a lot of space outback for the kids to run around which is helpful with a group of young boys!! I would definetly stay here again.

Had a great time. Stayed only one night, but kids wanted to stay longer. Kayaks and canoes were a big hit. We were on a three week east coast trip, this was our favorite place to stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely would stay here again.

The reviews are true...this place is very well kept and clean. We stay in M2 which offered a very private stay with our own private deck view of the lake. What would have made this stay better would have been a microwave in the room, lighting over the bathroom sink, and kayaks in better condition (although they were free to use). But the pros out weigh the cons...great location only 7 miles from Cooperstown, beach access to the lake (this is very limited at Otsego Lake), a quiet community, and a price that can't be beat. We stayed for 5 days and in retrospect probably should have paid a little more for a cottage for a little more space and a kitchen especially since there aren't a lot of restaurants near by; however there is a Price Chopper right in town for provisions.

Room Tip: M2 is probably the most private room; however pick a cottage if you are staying for more than a few...

Green Features: I believe they received an award for being eco-friendly; however I wasn't sure what they did to earn this other than offer you the opportunity to save your towel for another use. They probably need to boast a little more on this.
