Best Western Inn and Suites: Great comfortable option

This is a terrific value, in my view. It's about $150 a night when it's prime season and I understand it could be as low as $70 a night during other times. At $150, that might seem expensive, but I shopped around and the B&Bs in town were WAY more expensive and who knows what the quality of those places are. It's located in a strip mall that has convenient options for food and supermarket. It's about a 5 mile drive to downtown Cooperstown near the lake so as long as you're OK with driving a few minutes, it's a decent location.

The rooms were clean, and well kept. There's a fridge there so you can buy stuff at the supermarket and store it there. The beds were really comfortable, especially after a long drive. It has all the standard amenities you'd expect at a Best Western including hair dryer, ironing board, free wifi, TV, soaps/shampoos, towels, and microwave. It was a clean room and spacious. The people at the front desk were courteous. No problems there.

It's a very good hotel in the area if you want to guarantee some that you'll get a good value and stay in a comfortable place.

There seems to be a lot of B&B's in the area. So in this case, the fact that it's a standard hotel is quite unique. Some people would prefer a B&B but the fact that they can ensure you will get a certain level of quality here is what I was looking for. B&Bs in this area are generally in old houses but this is a relatively newer building that will probably mean less creaky floors and such.

Right near the front desk is an indoor pool which seemed to be clean and a good perk if you want to take a dip. I didn't get a chance to use it, but they also have a gym which is nice. Parking is plentiful. There's also paintballing in the same location, least according to the signs.

Barnwell Inn: A Nice B and B!

You get a clean basic room. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, you feel like family! The breakfast is the best part, of course, with beautiful place settings anda variety of cold and hot dishes. Highly recommended!!

Close to Baseball Hall of Fame and shopping district.

Motels and B&B's: Where to Stay

There are basically three areas to choose from when staying in Coopertown.
First off, there are the newer motel/hotels near the Dreamspark. These are the the Best Western, Holiday Inn Express and Howard Johnsons. These are several miles outside the town, walking distance to nothing. They are close to the dreamspark (within 2 minutes drive)

Then there are the motels along the lake. These are on the lake and you have options of boating, fishing and swimming from them. They also have a view. They are walking distance to nothing and about a 8 minute drive to the village.

Then there are B and B's scattered all around, many right in the village. Some are really nice.

Then there is the fancy hotel, The Otesaga, on the lake and in the village. Pricey but special.

Then there are two biggish inns right in the village, one is called "The Cooper Inn" and one is called "the Inn at Cooperstown". Right in the village and charming.

Pick what suits you. In the summer plan well in advance. Most place that are seasonal open up in May.

Two Centuries of Hospitality and Tradition: The Tunnicliff Inn

The Tunnicliff Inn is Cooperstown's Oldest Historic Inn & Restaurant.
It is located in the Center of Downtown Cooperstown, just seconds from the main street, the Baseball Hall-Of-Fame and other attractions. The stay is an adventuer of it's own, because the house and furniture is old, but warm and friendly. I felt like beemed back in another century! The included restaurant offers delicious american food! Just taste the black-beans-burger or the tuna-sandwich! Yummy!

The Meadowlark Inn: A Beautiful Comfortable Place to Stay!

My husband and I came to Cooperstown for the first time in October after many years of discussing the trip. Booking a place online is very chancy. You hope the place you choose is as nice as their website indicates. Well, we couldn't have been happier in finding the Meadowlark Inn. We were so comfortable. We felt like we were at home here. The beds were wonderful (we slept better than at home), the rooms were immaculate and the lobby was just so cozy. The views around the inn are beautiful. If we ever come back to Cooperstown, we will definitely go back to the Meadowlark.

Beautiful views of neighboring farms, backyard meadows, a lovely lobby, delicious breakfast, comfortable back deck outside rooms.

Comfort Inn: Rochester Comfort

The traffic was so bad in Detroit we didn't get to Rochester, NY, until 2 a.m. The lobby was deserted until the night clerk came in on a phone. We checked in and crashed.

Rainbow Inn: Travelers Comfort!

I did not stay here but it sounds really nice. There are a variety of rooms and there is also a honeymoon suite! The rooms seem really large and is furnished with microwaves and refrigerators.

The Inn is decorated in a sleep and contemporary style. There are family rooms and also they have a honeymoon suite. When there, you can go swimming, have a barbeque, or a picnic! Also, the Inn is a short walk away from of the best restaurants.

Nelson Avenue Pines: Nelson Avenue Pines

When I went to Cooperstown the motel I stayed at wasn't very good, as I stated before. I decided to research hotels in Cooperstown, and I picked the best ones to put one up here. The good thing about Nelson Avenue Pines is that it is located near the downtown.

A touch of country, this bed and breakfast is a timeless beauty and is located downtown. Relaxing and charming, it is renovated to look like 1870’s Victorian home and is decorated in Country French and antiques.

Major League Inn: Really Bad Hotel

Just don't go here. Really bad experience. Two beds squished into a room with an old TV mounted in the middle of the room. Did I mention the room was about 5 X 6 meters in area?
Also, the bathroom 1 X 1 meters with less for the stand up shower. The only way you can get ice is to go to the landlady and get it from her freezer. Not to mention the walls are paper thin. I could hear "things happening" in the room next to ours.
