“Perfect Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

This hotel is pricey, but worth every penny. May be the cleanest place I've ever stayed. Amazing view of the lake. Attentive and friendly staff. Beautiful pool. Short drive to Cooperstown. New TV in the room. Wifi is very strong. Only 15 rooms which makes it quiet and comfortable. Would love to come back for an extended stay.

Room Tip: Pay the $10 to park in Cooperstown all day. Worth the extra couple of bucks vs. the trolley or feed...

This hotel Is located about 4 mi. north of the village of Cooperstown on the west side of Otsego Lake. It’s position on a small hill provides a wonderful view of this pretty lake which is like a sapphire in a verdant green setting. The price is much more reasonable than the hotels in the village.

Huge, well manicured, lawn with lawn chairs to sit out under the trees in the evening and enjoy the view.

The beauty of the place tends to make you ignore some pf the not so good points such as:
• Shortage of outlets
• No phone in room (one shared phone on the wall outside the office)
• Terrible Internet Service (0.1 MB/S) Couldn’t even download Email.
• So-So continental breakfast.
• Apparently no staff on site after 9PM - they lock the office door and go home.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a lake view

We spent the week of fourth of July here. Great views of lake, the rooms were exceptionally clean, and the staff were so friendly. We especially liked that we were outside of Cooperstown and the traffic hassles. Would recommend to our friends and family. Thanks Tina and staff for a memorable stay.

I stayed there in June with my boys, and although the price was a little high (summer rates), it was a great stay. The people that run the hotel are very friendly. The hotel has a great view of the lake. They have a pool with some grills available which make it very family friendly or great for anyone. If you are looking for a no frills place to stay with a great view and only a few miles from Cooperstown this is the place. It was a classic Motor Inn. Enjoy!

Just up the road a bit from Main Street, this motor inn was a refreshing place to stay. Lovely lakeside views, ample parking, spotless rooms, and away from the downtown traffic. A pool and dock on the lake made a dip inviting. Budget friendly. Continental breakfast available. I definitely would stay there again.

We spent the Labor Day week-end in Cooperstown and stayed at the Terrace Motor Inn. We enjoyed the stunning view of Lake Otsego from outside our room. The Terrace Motor Inn is very clean and has that rustic feel. The three mile drive from the Motor Inn to Cooperstown's Main Street is lovely with the gorgeous Lake on the left, and that country greenery smell and feel all around. Good price and highly recommended for someone looking for a basic, not fancy place.

We have had the pleasure of visiting Cooperstown each of the last 3 summers and have stayed at the Terrace Motor Inn every time. Tina goes the extra mile to make us feel welcome and we have always been greeted by an immaculate room upon arrival. The surroundings are peaceful, including a grand view of Lake Otsego from the comfort of the balcony outside our room. Tina has also been a huge help to us by providing tips regarding the best places to eat in and around Cooperstown, as well as helpful hints on how best to navigate in and around the village. It is so great to be able to rely on superior accomodations from year to year. Whenever we arrive at Terrace it really does feel like we're visiting family.

Room Tip: We highly recommend a room on the 2nd floor of the main building, because of the great view of the l...
