Hickory Grove Motor Inn
Ranked #9 of 16 Hotels in Cooperstown
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My wife and I made a last minute decision to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY but had not made lodging reservations. Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, we chose the Hickory Grove Motor Inn -- AND ARE VERY HAPPY WE DID. It's a basic lodging with large room, large bathroom and a small shower (great water pressure and hot water). Our room, and it looks like all the rooms, had large back window (that can open) with very nice view of Lake Oswego - about 50 feet from the hotel. A 5 min. walk takes you to the lake -- and a free paddleboat owned by Hickory Grove that you can use. The people at the front desk were very, very friendly and welcoming. We also saved $5 on our tickets to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

What you should also know is that all of the lodging options in Cooperstown proper are exquisite and expensive. If you want to spend $400/night, you can have luxury. Our room was $150 - a bargain for the area. There is another inexpensive motel called Lake View that isn't nearly as well situated for people to enjoy or get to the water. I didn't stay they so can't speak about room or service quality.

When you decide to drive into Cooperstown, head toward town (road in front of Hickory Grove) until you see the Cooperstown Shuttle sign and parking lot. Park and take the shuttle ($2 for the whole day). Parking in town is limited and with a 2-hr. time limit.

We would definitely stay at Hickory Grove again.

We stayed 2 night at Hickory Run motel and were very pleased. Room was clean and comfortable, office staff were very pleasant. Rates were very good considering we were there the day after HOF inductions. Motel is approx 6 mile north of town, on scenic road along lake. Although they have lake access we did not walk down to lake.

We originally planned just to stay one night touring Cooperstown and Baseball HOF, but found Hickory Grove was pleasant and decided to stay another day. Basically we just slept there.

I rather support local motels when visiting small towns, rather supporting the chain hotels. Especially when they are close and comfortable.

Very clean, comfortable room. ROOM 3 had a very nice view of the lake. Only flaw was the tight quatered shower, everything else was great including the continental breakfast. Would definitely come back.

This is a few miles from Cooperstown but that was fine. Quieter that way and probably cheaper! The room was older but clean and a nice view of the lake (over a few rooftops). There was a nice area behind the rooms for sitting and relaxing in a grass area looking out towards the lake. We ate our breakfast food that we had brought. Their offerings were coffee, juice, toast, and packaged pastries. We knew that so we had brought our own cereal and milk. Worked out fine.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the lake so each should be fine.

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...
