“Staff great”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We took a room at the last minute and the staff was very hosptable. We checked in and went to town. We got a call that there was an emergency we needed to get home for. Went back to hotel 4 hours later and they were more than helpful and gracious in refunding our money. Great view of lake too! Thanks again.

Our teenage son wanted to visit Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame), we just wanted to "get away". Terrace Inn staff was friendly and welcoming. Charming inexpensive clean motor inn with beautiful lake views and space to move. The pool was chilly, but surely a welcome if the summer had been warmer. Really enjoyed fishing on the dock. Nice small continental breakfast was included during our staff. The only downside to me was the "thin" walls. Television, conversation and walking echoed from the room next door. Not sure if this can be corrected. Using the AC unit helped to drown the noise, but in particular some very active toddlers running and slamming doors early in the morning was very distracting. Perhaps a small place set or sandbox may have afforded a refuge for this energy.

Room Tip: Ask about neighbors, walls are thin.

I always stay at the Terrace Motor Inn whenever I visit Cooperstown. The rooms are very clean and Tina is the best host imaginable. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have a good experience while in the area. The view is fantastic and it is North of all of the congestion in downtown Cooperstown. I look forward to my next visit and many thanks to Tina.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are quieter as they are furthest from the road.

This hotel is pricey, but worth every penny. May be the cleanest place I've ever stayed. Amazing view of the lake. Attentive and friendly staff. Beautiful pool. Short drive to Cooperstown. New TV in the room. Wifi is very strong. Only 15 rooms which makes it quiet and comfortable. Would love to come back for an extended stay.

Room Tip: Pay the $10 to park in Cooperstown all day. Worth the extra couple of bucks vs. the trolley or feed...

This hotel Is located about 4 mi. north of the village of Cooperstown on the west side of Otsego Lake. It’s position on a small hill provides a wonderful view of this pretty lake which is like a sapphire in a verdant green setting. The price is much more reasonable than the hotels in the village.

Huge, well manicured, lawn with lawn chairs to sit out under the trees in the evening and enjoy the view.

The beauty of the place tends to make you ignore some pf the not so good points such as:
• Shortage of outlets
• No phone in room (one shared phone on the wall outside the office)
• Terrible Internet Service (0.1 MB/S) Couldn’t even download Email.
• So-So continental breakfast.
• Apparently no staff on site after 9PM - they lock the office door and go home.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a lake view

We spent the week of fourth of July here. Great views of lake, the rooms were exceptionally clean, and the staff were so friendly. We especially liked that we were outside of Cooperstown and the traffic hassles. Would recommend to our friends and family. Thanks Tina and staff for a memorable stay.

I stayed there in June with my boys, and although the price was a little high (summer rates), it was a great stay. The people that run the hotel are very friendly. The hotel has a great view of the lake. They have a pool with some grills available which make it very family friendly or great for anyone. If you are looking for a no frills place to stay with a great view and only a few miles from Cooperstown this is the place. It was a classic Motor Inn. Enjoy!
