This motel is in a lovely peaceful setting with a lakeview located near Cooperstown and Oneonta, New York, Our room was clean and comfortable, but lacked amenities of a newer updated motel, but still was a good place for a short stay to this area. Breakfast was quite simple.

This is a just ok motor lodge. It's close to a lot of attractions so it is overpriced for what you get. The room was extremely small and there are few niceties. The room was musty like there was mold growing. There really was no good view of the lake. We will definitely not stay there again.

At first we thought the place was just dated but the kitchen burners and stove were filthy., The shower was more like a fire hose. Internet was a joke - the only way to get it was in the bathroom. Speaking of bathroom, the toilet paper holder was missing which they knew about but didn't care to fix. Final straw...

Chose this motel near Cooperstown based on other reviews, as well as misleading indication that it was on the lake. The actual lake front belongs to a separate rental property. The room was dirty, had cobwebs, and was very outdated. Would definitely not stay again. Left the "do not disturb" sign out which did not matter, housekeeping knocked loudly and...

Called and email we would be arriving around 10 pm. Front desk girl said no problem. Arrived at 10:10 pm. Front door was locked and all was dark. Walked around knocked on what appeared to be a resident door. It was the owner, she said had no reservations. I showed her my emails and she gave us a different room...

I have stayed at this motel for better or worse once a year for over 15 years. The last time (two years ago) we stayed we vowed never to return. It was that bad. This year we stayed in a single queen bed room room facing the highway instead of the apartment type rooms on the lake level. The beds...

We were not wanting to have a daily commute to our grandson's baseball games at Cooperstown All-Star Village, but all the "name" Oneonta hotels were two to four times the price. We trusted the good reviews and booked here. While the room was dark and dated, it was basically clean and quiet. We found no coffee pods in the room,...

The motel is very dated, which wouldn't be awful if it wasn't extremely filthy. The amount of hair found in the bathroom and on the towels was terrifying. We felt very uncomfortable staying here. And it's still not that affordable. There's def potential here, location is fantastic. The views are great. It just needs a good cleaning and some new...

Only reasonable room in cooperstown area. Even though it was just okay it was over priced, room and exterior needs lots of updating. Retro furniture even though iroom was clean enough carpet had gross stain. It served our needs but left a lot to be desired. Help was very pleasant and helpful.

The hotel had no record of my Trip Advisor reservation, had no lakeside rooms available, made me pay for the first night for a room facing the road, charged me more than my quoted rate, and claimed that there was no room available for my 2nd night. Fortunately the clerk (owner?) was either incompetent or just a liar, because the...
