“The best place to stay in Cooperstown.”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

Lovely quiet location with great view of Lake Otsego. Very clean and comfortable rooms, attentive, helpful and friendly staff. We have been staying here for past 8 years in fall and summer. On our first visit we experienced an October snowstorm that included a power outage. All the other guests chose to leave. Tina made sure we were comfortable with lots of extra blankets, and brought in heaters when the power came back on at 1:00 AM. This is the kindness and consideration to be expected from the owners of this fine establishment. We keep coming back and always look forward to our next visit.

Can't get over how friendly & helpful the management is. Was the 3rd time that I 've stayed here, once a year to attend a canoe race. I was met by Tina by name when I approached the office. Now that is awesome. If you want a pleasant place to stay, clean, friendly, accomodating & lake view, this the place.

I've had occasion to stay at Terrace Motor Inn several times a year for the past several years, and I can't rate them highly enough. Tina and John run a quality inn. The rooms are pleasant, clean, maintained well, and very comfortable. The view overlooking Otsego Lake is welcome. The Inn sits high enough off Lake Road to keep things quiet, yet is close enough to Cooperstown and the goings-on there to be convenient. They have a lovely heated pool, and start you off in the morning with a lite and enjoyable breakfast. Tina keeps the place immaculate and attractive with pretty flowers. I really enjoy watching the hummingbirds that come to the feeders. I book my stays early each year so I don't miss out, because frankly this is the best place to stay when in Cooperstown.

We stay at the Terrace Motor Inn the week our son was playing at Cooperstown Dream Park. Our stay was quaint and so relaxing waking up to the beautiful view of the lake and hanging out by the pool. Large property for the kids to play. A complimentary breakfast is available every morning and the rooms are comfy and clean. The owner Tina was very pleasant and welcoming. It is a short drive to to the center of town and Cooperstown Dream Park which made it easier to go back and forth everyday. Best bet for your money.

I stayed with my wife. We have been to the area before and we usually stay at a local B&B. Unfortunately, we waited too long to book a room so we decided to give this place a try. The rooms were relatively clean and the view was nice, but those are the only good things I can say about this place. Rooms are dark, damp,and outdated. Oddly enough they do not have a phone in the room which was a problem because my cell service was spotty. The pool was up on a hill above the motel and is quite a steep hike. We found that is was extremely overpriced. I now ask to see the rooms before I agree to stay!! The staff was not very friendly, but they were not mean either. It seems most of the other reviewers and similar complaints/comments. So not all of us can be wrong.
