Red Carpet Inn On The Lake
Ranked #5 of 6 Oneonta B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 June 2012

I have stayed at several hotels in Oneonta and I always leave feeling disgusted and ripped off. The only places available during college event days if you haven't booked a year in advance are really the bottom of the barrel....and the chain hotels (if you can get them) are bordering on some serious price gouging. I decided to try this place when I picked up my daughter in May...such a pleasant surprise. It looks a bit dated and has very little curb appeal...but the rooms are spotless. The towels and linens are fresh and clean even though the bath and furnishings are a bit dated. Comfortable bed and pillows. Key here is CLEAN!!! Comfortable!!! And the view is a bonus...Front desk very helpful and polite....don't know about breakfast as I just grabbed coffee.

This is a great place! Far more than you would expect from A Red Carpet Inn motel. The staff was A+. The room was great. Not your average hotel box layout. Very nice furnishings and a spectacular view of the lake. The breakfast was ok, not great, but adequate. It was a very convenient drive into Cooperstown, close to Oneonta and not far from the highway. A beautiful rural setting, but only a few minutes from everything. This place totally impressed us and we will absolutely make this a regular stay when we are in the area.

I traveled over 3 and a half hours from NJ to visit the Hall of fame in Cooperstown. Upon booking my room I did a search of motels in the area and came across this diamond in the rough called Red Carpet Inn On the Lake. From the moment I called up the staff was friendly and very accomodating and gave me the best ways to get there that the GPS wouldn't recognize. That right out of the gate made for an easy travel. When I walked in the excellent service continued from Heather, Bill, and Mary who have made this Inn one of the best and most enjoyable I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. They are so friendly, knowledgable of the area, and extremely accomodating and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best possible experience. It's because of them that I will DEFINITELY return. The rooms were extremely clean and offered a wonderful view on the lake ina quiet little town that is about 15 minutes to the Hall of Fame. They offer a nice little breakfast each morning and made it such a pleaure to stay there. I will definitely be returning the next time I head up that way. You couldn;t ask for a better place to stay in the area with extremely affordable rates. If there's something you need and don;t see, they will go out of their way to get it to you or ensure that you are pointed in the right direction. Thanks again and hope to see you all soon!! Make sure you "LIKE" their facebook page!! : )

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.
