The Motel is just a mile+ outside of Oneonta and is in a nice location overlooking the hills. The parking is easy and plenty, the staff was friendly, the room was large, clean and had a small frig and microwave and coffee maker and small table with chairs. They have a nice continental breakfast and we sat outside overlooking the...

Had a wonderful two night stay at The Rainbow Inn. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The burgers at My Father's Place were delicious. We had a fun night meeting other freshman parents that evening. We will certainly book our next stay here when we head up to visit again.

We were happy to find our room here - it was spacious, comfortable, clean and nice decorated. The staff is very friendly. And the restaurant definitely recommended. When we go to Oneonta again, we will try to book a room here. This hotel offers great hospitality and is good value for money.

This is our second time staying at the Rainbow Inn (last time a couple of years ago) and it was wonderful both times. When calling to make our reservation, Maria saw that we had previously stayed there and remember me (the fact that my surname is the same as her middle name probably helped). We enjoyed everything about the motel...

We stayed here with our 2 boys while our 3rd son was at All Star Village. It's a convenient spot just off the freeway. It's small, 18 rooms. Maria is very sweet, very friendly. This little inn is very clean and the owners take pride in taking care of this place. The pool water and deck is immaculate. We weren't...

So I was up in All Star Village for a baseball tournament. I have a house in the Adirondacks but it was just too far to commute as it was late. So my wife and I decided we were going to get a room for the night instead. We had my youngest son with us as well. We tried several...

So happy to have found this motel.. Very pretty and very nicely decorated. It was also very quiet at night. Even a nice little breakfast to start the day... It gave a feel of being very homey. Maria the owner was very friendly. I would recommend this motel over any overpriced commercial hotel any time..We will definitely be coming back...

The people who run Rainbow Inn are great! The Inn is clean and well kept. Our room is large and comfortable. The pool area and pool are maintained and a nice size. The breakfast has a variety of things so even your little one should be happy. Getting to anything in either Oneonta (everything you need/want is within a few...

Maria is wonderful. The room was clean as was the bath. The room was large and the bed comfortable. Nice, clean pool. Reasonable rates. We'd stay here again. Close to town and food places. Was recommended to us by the Hampton Inn who was over priced. Thank you.

Booked Rainbow for a one night stay as we attending a college graduation in town. Arrived at 12:15pm on check in day; (which was a Friday), parking lot was empty. We were told by a woman in the office that check in was 3pm. I asked if any rooms were empty and was told yes but check in is 3pm....
