“A nice surprise”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

It has been renovated since they took the pictures that are on the website. It's much more modern now and the location cannot be beat and helpful. The hotel is right on the lake, but only just down the hill from the Hall of Fame. The staff was friendly. The walls are thin -- I could hear my neighbors talking, but it wasn't enough to keep me awake. We were in room 25 and it had a view of the lake (plus all rooms have deck chairs in front for relaxing and taking in the view).

We did the boat tour -- it's worth it for the view and a moment of relaxation (although the narration was a little campy for my taste). It was so relaxing, I fell asleep!

Breakfast was ok. It did cost more for anything other than the very basics but for $3.45 plus tip, my meal was decent enough. The young woman who was our waitress was odd, but just inexperienced (and perhaps a little lonely).

I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: I would recommend the rooms in the smaller building across from the check in place. That's where...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May 2012. Since it was low season, and the prices were reasonable, we chose a King Superior room, with a balcony overlooking the lake. The location is great, walking distance to the BHOF, and Main Street restaurants and shops. The room was clean, as was the bathroom, and the furnishings relatively new. My only faults with this place were the walls are paper thin, and the bathroom fan/light is painfully loud.
Overall, a good deal for off-season, I'm not sure I would recommend this place with their published high season rates though. For conveinence - it can't be beat. Peaceful setting as well, until one of your neighbors talks.

This is a really nice, hidden away spot in Cooperstown which I happened upon due to all the chain hotels being full. It was the best if you like water and the lake surrounding you. It is very clean, nice people take care of it and the location is one of the best. Ask for the opposite side of where the office is---we looked out the window and within three feet of our room was water. It rained during our out of season stay(less expensive) so I was able to look out the window and enjoy the beauty of the area. It is a definite--we are going back here!!! Also, trip advisor had recommended it-the rooms are renovated and the picturethat shows the hotel is not as nice as the real thing. It is a very nice place!

Room Tip: Ask for the opposite side of the office-it is on the water

I organize group Sports related trips and this one was to Cooperstown. I took 11 rooms for the weekend of April 20th thru 22nd. The hotel is very nice. It is a very scenic and peaceful location right on Ostwego Lake. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is very accomodating and pleasant. Particularly, Rosey who helped in the booking of the rooms, James the night manager and Paula the owner. You're only a short walk to the Hall of Fame and Main Street where all the stores and restaurants are located. I would definitely recommend it if you're in that area and especially if you're going to go to the Hall of Fame.

Was very shocked to arrive and this hotel property had been recently renovated. Very nice. Included a ticket to the boat tour- took that, glad we did. Got a full history of the area and views of the lake we wouldn't have gotten.
Breakfast vouchers are provided- tip and extra sides not included. Food was okay- good enough but not amazing.
Rooms were very new and clean. Walking distance to shopping, Baseball Hall of Fame and great restaurants in town.
View is great!!!!

Stood here for a weekend in early November. My parents had stood here even before the renovation,and apparently they've made very nice improvements.

On first glance, the location is absolutely beautiful. It's right on the lake and near the glimmer glass queen (boat that takes trip on the lake, if you're unfamiliar.) upon entering the rooms you can tell it is newly renovated. It's not a 5-star renovation, but its comfortable and cozy. The beds are very comfy, but the bathroom was a little annoying with lack of shelf space to put my things. The walls are also very thin, so be warned! There's also very little sitting room, but you're not really in the room the whole day so I guess it's not that big of a deal.

The hotel is in great proximity to the hall of fame, so we kept our car parked there and just walked into town which is a huge plus. The man at the front desk was also very nice and informative about where to eat, etc. I'd love to go here again in the Spring and Summer!

Great location about a two minute walk to HOF. Room was clean and large.

No issues at all. Not the Ritz, but price was good and for a night or two in town it fits the bill quitw well.
