“Just So-So”
Reviewed June 19, 2007

We just left Hickory Grove and I agree with the 6/12 posting.
The place is just OK. We paid $150/nite and it was not worth it.

It is quite far away from the center of Cooperstown, about 10 miles away. We wasted a lot of gas $$ going back and forth.

Only after we balked about the closed beach and threatened to leave did they offer us access to a hotel pool up the road. We should have been offered this upfront.

The place is not a bad place but it could be much better. The new owners need to step up their game.

Hickory Grove Motor Inn (it's not a B&B!) was adequate, but nothing at all special. The lakefront is closed until further notice, due to flood damage. Furnishings are adequate but extremely out of date. OK value for the money, but nothing to get excited about.

I planned a surprise trip to The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown for my husband's birthday. Initially, I selected the Hickory Grove Motor Inn for its moderate price and great location. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a delightful place to stay. The rooms were very clean and had all the basic necessities. And the huge windows opened up to beautiful views of Lake Otsego. The owners were friendly and very accomodating. They helped us plan our day and recommended great restaurants. Everyday, we looked forward to coming back to our room to sit by the water and sip some wine, while watching a full moon light up the lake. We even enjoyed an afternoon of paddle boating, compliments of the inn. I highly recommend the Hickory Grove Motor Inn.

The inn keepers were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. It was a short walk to Lake Otsego from our room. Short, scenic drive to Cooperstown. We'd definitely recommend this family run inn.
