Red Carpet Inn On The Lake
Ranked #5 of 6 Oneonta B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Pretty good room in a beautiful setting - book lakeside.
If you are looking for 5 star mint on the pillow and satin sheets then this place is not for you. My bed was comfortable, service was very friendly, lakeside view in the monring stunning with fall colors.
Not a far drive to good food selection.
Bang for the buck indeed.

Room Tip: Book lakeside not road view

This hotel was a gem in Upstate NY. Location is very conveinient to Cooperstown, Hall of Fame and Cooperstown Brewery. We stayed on the lake side of the hotel, had a terrific view of the rolling hills and a wonderful experience. Hotel is a bit older but kept up with extreme care. They even have a great toothbrush for purchase if you forget yours too.

Room Tip: Lakeside View is worth it, has porch for sitting and enjoying view.

We stayed one night and were very pleasantly surprised. Our room was an efficiency at their lakeside facility and was VERY clean and well maintained. Breakfast was adequate, no bells and whistles but enough to keep you going to lunch. Staff were welcoming and answered our questions. A decent overnight and we would stay again if we find ourselves in the area.

Room Tip: Bathroom size was minimal, adequate and clean, reminded us of some ensuites from hotel stays in Euro...

We stayed at Red Carpet Inn for 1 night as it was very beautiful view through the lake. The owner was friendly when I arrived & made a point of chatting to me in the bar, when i returned at night. The room was clean but with not a lot of natural light and not a big issue as i was out all day anyway. All the usual amenities provided & an en suite shower and free wi-fi. The heat sometimes doesn’t work, it need to be repaired.

After having tried to get a good deal on a decent hotel for a fair price, I had almost given up. The Red Carpet Inn has restored my faith that this is possible!!! The accommodations are very comfortable, very clean and very affordable. And the staff is absolutely wonderful!!! I highly recommend this hotel.

This place was clean, affordable ($100 a night, two double beds) with a great lake view. Very close to Oneonta & the highway, close to Cooperstown & all the attractions. Breakfast was light, mostly just cereal, juice & coffee.

My husband and I stayed at Red Carpet Inn On the Lake for five nights while our son played in the Cooperstown Baseball World Tournament. Our room was on the lake side of the hotel so we had a beautiful view and a nice place to sit outside in the evenings. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Their is a picnic pavilion on the lake that hotel guests can use. We used it for a pizza party for my son's baseball team. The hotel is conveniently located between Oneonta and Cooperstown and there are lots of restaurants and convenience stores close by.
