You have to know upfront that hotels in the Cooperstown area drawn the vast majority of their income from May through October, thus the prices they charge are outrageous, which leaves you no choice if you want to spend a few days up by the baseball hall of fame.
The door to our room would not close. You could slam it has hard as you want but with a nudge of a shoulder open it again with ease. We found this out after already having unpacked all of our belongings as well as those of our three kids (12,10,6). So we basically hid all of our valuables and banked on the fact that no one would possibly think to try to intrude. We were too tired to ask for another room, so we lived with it. STRIKE ONE
Our kids were too tired to drive to Oneonta for fireworks so we stayed in our room to watch fireworks on TV (Macy's fireworks). The TV reception was deplorable and as much as I tried to fix the wire in the back nothing worked. So we were left trying to entertain three kids for a few hours till they konked out with no TV to rely on.
On the positive side, the breakfast was very good. Bagels, cereal and yogurt. Nothing heavy but substantial enough to tide the kids over till lunch.
Let caution be your guide if you want to stay here. I'm sure my room is the exception to what happens, but no room in this place is worth $233, no matter when, except for perhaps Induction Weekend..
