Hickory Grove Motor Inn

Reviewed 17 July 2014

My sister and I were doing our first visit to Cooperstown, The Fenimore and The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The room we had was clean, with a great view of the lake, and the mountain on the other side...amazing lightening/thunder storms both days we were there...all of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the outdoor space was a delightful place to eat breakfast.
Beds were really comfortable...real coffee in the morning, and a filling continental breakfast included...I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Room #3 has a great lake view

I grew up camping and staying in mom n pop motels. I was anxious for my kids to get this experience. The rooms are nicely updated with a beauitful view of the lake. The boys enjoyed taking out the peddle boat after a long day of following daddy around the Baseball Hall of Fame. They have a light continental breakfast which I enjoyed on the deck, relaxing with my coffee and a book before leaving. Couldn't be happier with the room or employees. One note, we arrived about 8 pm and didnt grab dinner in Cooperstown, the only place to get a bite in the area. Thank heavens for pop tarts and granola bars.

Room Tip: All good rooms. Room 7 was in the middle with the best view.

Our room was nice and clean with new carpet. The large picture window overlooked Lake Otsego and couldn't have been prettier. After spending a long morning at the Hall of Fame we spent the afternoon in the back yard enjoying the view and the comfortable seating.

We were very happy with the location. It was a short 5 miles to the yellow parking lot for Cooperstown which meant it was the last place to stop before it got to town and the first place it went after picking us up in town.

Breakfast was just continental, but adequate to get you going for town.

Only downside to the place was the shower had adequate water and pressure, but it did get hot and it seemed the only thing you could adjust was the pressure, not the heat.

Room Tip: Beautiful view. Staff was nice and helpful. Clean room and very convenient to Hall of Fame, our ul...

The Hickory Grove is a great hotel to stay at while visiting Cooperstown and an excellent value. The owners have invested in the property and everything has been recently renovated. The location is quiet and you will get a good night's sleep. I was pleasantly surprised at the breakfast offerings. Great orange juice--not the watered down kind found elsewhere. Choice of yogurt, granola bars, and breads. Very clean and well maintained. Large selection of tv channels on flat screen tv. Great view of the lake.

The owner is very friendly and helpful. His attitude is exemplary and you will notice the difference.

Clean, comfortable rooms with great view of the lake. Tables and chairs for relaxing in the sun with grills available for a quick dinner as well. Near to attractions, but not in the thick of things so a quiet retreat. A good value. We would stay again.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Hickory Grove Inn. They have reasonable prices and nice views of the lake. Only 6 miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame, made for a quick drive to see Cooperstown. Room was clean and staff was friendly. we would most likely stay again.

When we were planning on visiting Cooperstown a year ago, this was the only hotel available for the dates we wanted. Now I understand. Cooperstown has NO and I mean NO Chain hotels or restaurants. Everything is family owned. So with that said, we didn't have much of a choice on where to stay.
This is a motor inn. The old fashion type that I stayed in as a kid. The room was very small with a window unit that had a hard time keeping us cool. The TV kept going off. Didn't quite understand that. But overall, it was a place to rest our head after visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame and continuing on our way across the state. Staff was very pleasant and helpful in finding a place to eat.

hgmi09, Owner at Hickory Grove Motor Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 7 September 2013

Thank you, JKKTEXAS, for reviewing our establishment. Our town, Cooperstown, does not have chain hotels on Lake Otsego because our town wants to keep its small quaint town feel and therefore we only have family owned hotels and restaurants in our town limits. We do realize our rooms are on the smaller size but we have updated every detail in our guest rooms over the last 5 years. Every room has its own AC/Heat unit by GE that most certainly cool down our guest rooms as those are tested on a weekly basis to make sure they are in working condition. The TV problem you had could have been corrected if the issue was brought to our attention. We would like to thank you for letting us know about your stay with us and we hope you choose us, Hickory Grove Motor Inn, next time you are in the area.
