Very expensive for what you receive. The Continental breakfast was terrible, the rooms are average, staff wasn't very friendly, and while they have beautiful grounds they have only 2 park benches outside (not together) to sit on. They have an unsightly seating area outside the b'fast area, but isn't somewhere you would want to sit and enjoy the grounds. They... More

The Cooper Inn is a lovely 15-room hotel in an old historic house. The rooms are nicely appointed and are average size. The common rooms are very nicely decorated.

The Cooper Inn is an old mansion converted into a modest sized inn in the center of Cooperstown. It is adjacent to the main street of the village and a few blocks from the baseball hall of fame. A nice continental breakfast is served.

The hotel is quaint and nicely decorated. My biggest issue is that there are so many STAIRS, no elevators or bellmen. The front desk manager was so helpful with our luggage and carried it up but I was rather embarrassed asking him. We were in upstate NY for a week so we had rather large suitcases.
