What an adorable place to stay. The staff is great and friendly. The room was very clean with a mini refrigerator and cable TV! Every morning the motel offers breakfast with granola bars, bagels, fruit, coffee and more! It's also a hop skip and a jump from downtown Cooperstown - Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. Can't really ask for more....

We were just stopping overnight to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame. We had two double beds. Room very small, but clean. Bathroom needs a major overhaul. Breakfast not until 8:00AM. Nice view of the lake.

Good place to stay on a budget quiet and clean though the tiny shower is funky. Fantastic view of the lake. A beautiful few miles lakeside drive to Cooperstown and the HOF. Friendly young staff. Basic free breakfast in the office.

We spent a few days in Cooperstown last week and stayed here. This is a nice, clean, family owned establishment. The view of the lake from our room was very nice and we walked down to the lake front a couple of times while we were there. The hotel is about 6 miles outside the center of town. The view...

Spent the day at the Baseball Hall of Fame and then drove up the road to the Hickory Grove Motor Inn. We were warmly greeted upon arrival, provided brief instructions about the continental breakfast then shown how to get to the lake (a short 5 minute walk). Our room was comfortable, clean and featured a fridge and writing table with...

The Hickory Grove is a few miles north of Cooperstown by a lovely drive along the lake. It is a small traditional motel which offers a private beach area and lake views from some rooms. It is an excellent value with large clean rooms and breakfast. The staff are very helpful in planning your stay. Really enjoyed our stay.

This Motel was about 5 mile from town, but was very clean. It had access to the lake behind the motel. was a nice walk and once at the cove it was beautiful and peaceful. The room was nice enough, but the tv reception was not the greatest. The bathroom had a very small shower, but the water pressure and...

Cozy, clean & comfortable for starters. Staff is very accommodating and friendly at this family owned and operated inn. They are also very knowledgeable about what to do and how to do it. Small beach (pebbles, not sand) is perfect for fishing or a dip. Short drive to the village and all it offers. Free continental breakfast good enough to...

This is a nice place to stay. The staff is courteous and the place is very clean. The rooms are small but that's a motel. I wasn't expecting a presidential suite. The shower is really small and the curtain could be better but for an overnight stay I really can't complain. They have lake rights and there is an indoor...
