The hotel had no record of my Trip Advisor reservation, had no lakeside rooms available, made me pay for the first night for a room facing the road, charged me more than my quoted rate, and claimed that there was no room available for my 2nd night. Fortunately the clerk (owner?) was either incompetent or just a liar, because the...

We stayed here for one night to do a college visit to suny of delhi the room was ok but you get two door s in each room one door lets you in from the driveway the other door lets you out to the lobby hallway.

If i could give this dump a zero rating, i would. We arrived and checked in. Went to our room. The refrigerator door was broken. Room smelled. In checking the made up bed, there were globs of hair in the sheets. There were crumbs between the sheets. Also a previous review staying there were bed bugs. We DID NOT stay.......

Took my son to visit SUNY ONEONTA. Wanted a budget place for two men to stay. This fit the bill. Wouldn't recommend this for your trip with your wife, or a romantic getaway, but it suited us just fine. Clean, comfortable. Heating was great. Comfortable beds. Very nice folks at the front desk. Don't even think about partaking in their...

Considering all of the bad reviews I read about this motel I have to rate it very good because of the value for the price. Now we stayed there for a Saturday night when the hotel we like to stay at that were closer to Oneonta Theatre were filled because of Alumni Week. The hotel is a short scenic drive...

We actually thought we had made a reservation at the Red Carpet Inn closer to Cooperstown, which is not nearly as pleasant as this one. We were delighted to find that we had a room with a beautiful view of Goodyear Lake, and chairs outside that we could sit in to enjoy the quiet and the view. The room itself...

This place is definitely nothing fancy, but it serves it's purpose. The rooms are certainly outdated and there were a few unpleasant smells, but overall it was clean and provided a safe place to sleep and shower. The staff was friendly and there was a nice view of the lake.

I was the lucky one in our group as my room was comfortable and updated. Other rooms were out of the 60s or 70s. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was pathetic. My in room refrigerator had a lock which didn't work and staff couldn't fix. Therefore I was unable to use. Being on the lake was nice,but tiny swim area.

Room was smelly and we found a dark long hair in the bedding (we're both gray-haired). worse, we were told we had a balance of $120 after paying $300 to Priceline. When I showed th Priceline receipt, they replied (twice) "That's what Priceline charges but we charge more." There were no extrs services. My attorney is standing by! 41

This property is only two miles out of Cooperstown. It's an easy two mile drive to the park and ride then catch the trolley into Cooperstown. It's a whopping $2 per person and it's all day long. This property is clean, lots of parking, quiet, nothing fancy but it's great value especially if you're doing a short stay. My husband...
