Given the SEVERE LACK of lodging options in Norwich, NY, Fred's or budget chains are the choices unless you are okay driving 25-45 minutes to Hamilton or Oneonta. The rooms are motel-like, for the most part clean, but very modest in its features. You check in at the bar, where the crowd hears your room number (let's hope for no...

I stayed at Fred's for 10 weeks last year and I am going back there- in a few weeks. Clean Room, well set up for the everyday business traveler. The staff is always accommodating and friendly." Everyone will make you feel like you are part of this place and are welcomed there. Food at the restaurant - Really good |...

Stayed the night on my way to Hamilton College one weekend this fall. What I liked: The room was clean and well appointed. Let's face it, for a Mom and Pop place in the middle of nowhere, that's saying something. Big color TV that allowed me to watch Notre Dame beat Texas (the Bevo with the glowing eyes outside wasn't...

You know for sure you have reached Fred's because as you approach you can't miss the huge plastic? horned bull perched about two stories above the ground at the entrance to the parking lot. The room was tidy and clean as was the restaurant. However, the entire place, both inside and outside, is drab and needs a "new coat of...

We were meeting family for an impromptu reunion, in mid-July and all the Oneonta area hotels were booked. On a chance, we booked here, as we had been in the area recently, on another visit to family, touring the Classic Car Museum in Norwich. Our room and bed were very comfortable, although no closet in our room. Second floor room...

We recently stayed at Fred's Inn one night, following the Chenango Blues Festival. It was a few miles from town, but easy to find. The room had a king bed, sofa bed, small desk, fridge, microwave, table and chairs and was quite spacious. 2nd floor rooms are accessible by using an outside staircase. The room was quite clean and the...

The room is OK. The advertised price on the internet for our room with a King Size bed was $79 per night. I called and was told the room was $89 per night. I was OK with that. Then comes time to pay...now the room has unadvertised weekend rates of $149 for Friday and Saturday nights. I was not told...

We drove up to Norwich, NY from PA to visit a family member in an Assisted Living Home there. We actually took the Review Recommendations on Trip Adviser for the Inn. Just outside of the city limits, it was perfect for our overnight stay & close enough to where we needed to be. The Reviews were true, 2nd floor more...

Refered to Fred's Inn by my customer after telling him of other hotels I have used in the area. I had observed road side sign several times and would not have stopped except for the referral. Check in was smooth and the room was very nice. Large clean and quiet. The menu selection at the restaurant was extensive and very...

We stayed here for the weekend for a wedding. I read reviews first and was confident that we would enjoy our stay, and we did. While a bit dated, the rooms were large, clean and comfortable, with necessary amenities. Even and iron and ironing board! We would definitely stay again.
