The hotel is right on Lake Otsego and it is a beautiful setting. The entire facility is updated and very clean. The proximity to town and other local attractions is very convenient. The room was a litlle cramped. There was an exhaust fan in the bathroom that sounded like a jet engine. It didn't have a seperate switch so it went on every time you turned the light on. VERY annoying. Be aware there are NO cancellations. We were going to leave one night early to visit old friends we hadn't seen in 30 years, and they would not refund the one night. The woman at the front desk was not very personable, however the other staff members we met were all friendly.
Wonderful staff, perfect location Rooms a bit too cozy but not terrible
The location is ideal - less than two blocks from the Hall of Fame - and it is right on the edge of the lake. It was dark, uncomfortable, the bathroom fan sounded like an air raid warning, the walls were bare, and the sofa rock hard. At $150 a night this might have been okay - at $300 pretty much unacceptable.
Visited this hotel in Winter and the heat was not controllable in the rooms as the regular heating system was malfunctioning requiring heat to be pumped through the central AC. The result - some very high temperatures and major discomfort in the rooms. The staff was great and very apologetic and the rooms were otherwise very clean. It would've been nice to receive a discount of some kind (not sure if it was already baked into the price online) to account for the heating issue. Overall, the location, staff, and cleanliness of the hotel balanced out the heating issue.
The location It was way too expensive for what the hotel offered. The only rooms left were ones listed as "lake view" which means a 4'x10' concrete area facing a cove with two lawn chairs. You can hear the people who dock their boat there at night and the morning. It's a fairly decent motel room that is priced at least twice as much as you would pay anywhere else. With taxes and fees the two nights cost about $600, quite a surprise for upstate NY. Only choose here if it's one of the last places available, which we did.
Beautiful lakeside, downtown location.
Great place and walking distance to museum
My trip was just an overnight stay - with my 22 year old son. I chose this venue because of its location to the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. It did not disappoint - it was within a few blocks walking distance. Our room was right on the lake - very nice setting, as was the dining area outside the hotel restaurant. Complimentary breakfast, and boat tour on the lake was included. Very clean, but smallish (queen size) room. Free parking was nice (not much parking in Cooperstown). I would definitely stay again.
My fiancé and I stayed at Bayside Inn & Marina for 1 night. It was a lovely stay. The room was ready for us when we arrived, check in was simple. The room was immaculate in terms of cleanliness which was huge for me. We walked down to their beach/picnic area and it was beautiful. The views of the lake and the lake water itself - gorgeous. We just sat outside for most of the evening. When it was time to get dinner, we asked for a recommendation of light fare and got a great one, came back to the hotel and ate by the lake. The next day we were able to get up and borrow one of the hotel kayaks for free and take it out on the lake for an hour, so beautiful! When it was time to leave, we asked for a recommendation for brunch and were sent to the Double Day cafe in Cooperstown and had a wonderful meal. Overall a great experience, I would definitely go back! The hotel isn't within a reasonable walking distance to Cooperstown center but it's an easy price to pay for the gorgeous lake views and access.
Extremely friendly staff, well kept grounds, clean rooms, quiet, beautiful lake view, will stay every time i go to this area!! Had a fire in the firepit out by lake at night and met new friends. Took their kayak out in the morning at sunrise. Beautiful!
They had rooms available less than $200/night. Outside of town, small beds, no breakfast, wifi was totally unusable, way too much money for what you got.
The location was ideal. They claimed to have free wi-fi and breakfast, but there were neither. The rooms were decently clean, but I found some dirty socks on the floor and a hole in the wall when I arrived. Shower didn't drain properly. It was way too expensive for what I received. And there were only double beds, no queen beds!
We had a medical appointment in Cooperstown. The Red Carpet Hotel was very convenient and more reasonable than others of equal quality. We will use your hotel again.
Reasonably close to Cooperstown village and Dreams Park baseball fields. Across the street from fishing docks and swimming in the lake. Very reasonable prices during peak season. Strong AC window unit. Nice staff. Musty smelling room due to lack of bathroom ventilation so all of the humidity is stuck in the room. Old tube style TV (some rooms have flat LCDs). Beds are terrible....lumpy, squeaky and old. Wifi was very sporadic and slow. Parking can be tight for certain units next to the entrance.
