My husband and I just returned from a 2-night stay. It was Spring Break, but still the off-season in Cooperstown so we secured a great rate for our stay. We have stayed in many Best Westerns and this wasn’t the best, but nowhere near the worst. There were renovations going on, but it didn’t disrupt our stay. The hotel is adjacent to a small shopping center with McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Tops supermarket, Family Dollar, Subway, a liquor store, Chinese place, and coffee shop. There was ample parking. Location was key for us as we were in town to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame and some of the local breweries. The hotel is located on Route 28 and was a 10-minute ride into the village of Cooperstown. The breweries and Cider Mill & Orchard were all within 5 or 6 miles of the hotel. The area is easy to navigate and was a peaceful area to travel around.
The hotel is average and has two buildings. We booked a king room and it was your standard hotel room. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room, which was nice. The air conditioner worked well, but it was on the noisy side. My one complaint was the bathroom. There was a fan, but ventilation was still lacking. Our shower only had a shower curtain (no liner) which didn’t fully block the water from the shower. We had to put towels on the floor so we didn’t flood the bathroom.
The hotel has a small pool and a hot tub in the main building. The pool area is small, so I’m not sure how many families could actually enjoy the pool in comfort. I could see it getting crowded very easily if the hotel was fully booked. Complimentary breakfast is always nice, but it wasn’t anything special. They offered basics, coffee/juice, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, breads, danish, a pancake and wafflemaker and three hot items. The food wasn’t great, but again, it’s free. I felt bad for the woman in charge of the area, she couldn’t keep up with refilling all of the food options. The other guests were so impatient and acted like scavengers when things were refilled. We opted to skip breakfast the next morning since the room was so overcrowded.
Overall, I would stay at this hotel again for the same rate. It was a decent choice for a quick stay in Cooperstown. less
