Reviewed 11 September 2015

The Terrace Motor Inn was exactly as represented. It is a simple, clean motel with a nice view and access to the lake. It was all the little things that made it worth the money: breakfast was nothing fancy but handy, coffee ready at 7 am sharp was convenient and having free use of canoe, stand up paddle boards. There...

My husband and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon.The owner was so friendly and helpful! We had a beautiful lake view from our room. The room was very clean with a heavy scent of chlorine which we didn't mind. The pool was too cold to use as it is an outdoor pool. We loved the location as it was...

I was a bit concerned when I saw the pictures online. Yes the rooms are old looking and it has a bit of an old smell, but if you can get past that you will enjoy your stay. The rooms were clean and no signs of bed bugs. My children enjoyed the water activities and they had a great time....

This review is based on Cooperstown in summer. There is both lake view and access and it is close to town center. These are the nice qualities. This is a very basic and plain motel with very, very cheap furniture. Noisy and not much privacy. Room offers no amenities and water is incredibly soft; difficult to rinse soap and shampoo....

We stayed two nights while attending Glimmerglass operas. The hotel is easy to find, a clean and very quiet property with a 1960's or 70's feel. Rooms are adequate but spare, WiFi excellent. An outdoor pool is available roughly 20 feet up a grassy terrace, and various boats are available on the lake as well. We had a 2-bed room,...

I stayed one night in order to attend a Glimmerglass Festival performance and was not impressed with the facility. I did enjoy the performance at Glimmerglass. It is extremely difficult to find reasonably priced short stay accommodations in the area since most places are booked for weekly stays by families with kids in baseball clinics and tournaments. I booked at...

My daughter and I stayed a single night as we visited the Baseball Hall of Fame. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to be active. The motel is next to the lake and provides FREE use of a paddle boat, canoe and multiple stand up paddleboards. There were also a couple guest fishing (with some luck...

We decided on a last minute trip to Cooperstown Dreams Park to watch our Grandson play baseball and were pleasantly surprised to find a room available at the Terrace Motor Inn.

This cute, little motel has stunning lake views! The rooms are dated, but very clean and comfortable. It's very peaceful if you have good neighbours. The first night we stayed, there was a lot of noise coming from people outside partying, but the second night was much quieter. There is a pool and they have kayaks and paddle boats available...

This is a older motel that has been well maintained. It is about 3 miles from the downtown area. It has great views of the local lake which add a nice touch to the place. The owner and workers really know how to service their guest. Will definitely stay there again.
