Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Cooperstown Hartwick Seminary
The very best in Cooperstown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just returned from a trip to Cooperstown and let me tell you, WOW! If your looking for a hotel in Cooperstown, look no further. The Holiday Inn Express was awesome! First class in everyway! The hotel is brand new and the rooms are perfect. Everything you've read about this place is true. The nicest hotel in Cooperstown, NY. Great location too.
This hotel is new and the establishment is quite lovely. I was traveling by myself and enjoyed a king-sized bedroom with a microwave and refrigerator for $125 per night.
The room was very clean and well-kept, bed was comfortable, bathroom immaculate. They have a great cable T.V. package, never at a loss for something to watch, and FREE high speed Internet access. If you need to use their patch cable, you will leave a $10 deposit, to be refunded upon the return of the cable. Breakfast was quite substancial for a continental breakfast, but they clean up at 9:30 A.M. even on weekends. The indoor pool is small, but clean. The spa was great, a nice way to relax after a day of shopping and sight-seeing. The gym facilities seemed adequate for the size of the hotel.
The hotel is about 4 miles from the Hall of Fame, but an easy drive. Considering the area is rural, the hotel's location is good, close to McDonald's, Pizza Hut, a steakhouse, grocery store, and other small businesses located in a strip mall.
I was very happy with my choice of accommodations and would probably stay here again on future get-aways.
This was a perfectly clean and friendly place to stay. Great location for visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame. We really enjoyed our stay. The only discomfort was the overly heated pool area. We would highly recommend this Holiday Inn.
Great place to stay
Am here now as we speak and what a wonderful place. Breakfast was awesome, the rooms are spacious. There is a shopping center next door with a McDonald's, Pizza Hut, grocery store, steakhouse and others in it. It is not close to Cooperstown, Baseball Hall of Fame, but that is fine.
The pool is downstairs of the hotel and the gym (with 2 treadmills and a bike in it). The whirlpool is also great. The hours are 8 am to 10 pm. I definately will stay here again.
VERY NICE CHOICE!!!
Wow - this hotel was great!! It is still very new and very clean. The rooms were the nicest rooms I have stayed in. Well worth the fact that it is 4 miles from the village. I would highly recommend to everyone.
Wonderful- best place to stay here
What a great surprise! Everything was clean, new, the staff was very nice. Great breakfast in the morning. I had a suite booked for the next leg of our trip and i wouldve gone back to our standard room here if I had a chance. Beautiful views of the mountains. great location to everything. Next door is a grocery store and various resturaunts. Book early and pay before you arrive on the holiday inn website and this place will only cost you 100 a night compared to the 170 I know most people paid! Cant wait to go Back!
Best Hotel in Cooperstown - Definitely worth the money
My husband, his brother and I just returned from a weekend at the Holiday Inn Express in Cooperstown. We had a double queen suite for $179 a night and it was worth every penny. The room was spacious for 3 adults and included a mini fridge and microwave. It has very modern furnishings and is exceptionally clean. The front desk staff is very friendly. Check-in & Check-out went smoothly. Location was great even though it is 2-3 miles away from the center of town where the Hall of Fame is located. We would definitely stay there again!
EXCELLENT OFF LOCATION HOTEL
An excellent choice for those of us who eschew the typical bed and breakfast inns that are scattered throughout this area. If you are like me, you will prefer more modern accomodations. You know, sans the creaky floors and shared bathrooms! The rooms here are huge, and, owing to its new-ness, clean and very attractive. The bathrooms are not like the old Holiday Inns of the roadside past. Marble counters and shower stall linings with properly matching textured wallpaper make this bathroom look and feel a few echelons above the price range. The complimentary continental breakfast is always well-stocked and fresh, with just enough choice to keep you supplied.
The staff, which I only had check-in to observe, was kind and courteous.
The only negative was the fact that the hotel is a few miles from the main attractions in town. However, given the way the town looks, I'd rather it be kept out to preserve its "old time New England town" feel. Come to think of it then, that's not really a negative, is it?
Do not be afraid to book accomodations here. You will not be disappointed!
Fantastic stay in baseball country!
Just returned from a trip back east, which included a visit to the Baseball Hall Of Fame in Cooperstown. Our family of five stayed here at the relatively new HI Express, and have nothing but great comments about it. It's in a great, quiet location about 2-3 miles from town, and about a mile past Dreams Park. The room was plenty big for all of us and the breakfast was just what we needed to start the day, and kept constantly stocked for the 3 hours it was open. My kids loved the free internet access, the pool and treadmills. The front desk was very helpful with information about directions and restaurant recommendations.
You cannot go wrong here. Unless it's a B&B you want, I highly recommend this new hotel!
I did not stay here but if the hotel runs like the the employee's they hire then it should be a 5 star.
To make a long story short we had a bad experience trying to make arrangements at a Budget Inn in Sharon Springs (Don't stay there).
We stopped at the Holiday Inn express to see what they had. They did have a room but it was more than we could afford to pay for 3 days ($179 although probably in line with the other hotels). Mike the desk guy then asked if he could call around to help us find something less expensive.
So, I cannot review our stay but would definitely recommend this hotel based on it's employees.

... my classmate, Lindsay, will be staying and working in a small rural hospital outside of the city of Mysore. For us, it will be considered our women's health rotation, although we aren't quite sure what we are getting into.
I am looking forward to the experiences that are ahead and am honored to share my journey with all of you. I promise to update whenever possible :)
Bye for now!
Very scenic drive through New York State, heading toward the Adirondacks - the trees are very green but with some fall colours just starting. The campsite is rustic and very quiet, not too busy.
Highlights: Downtown Corning, beautiful town with old buildings and pretty parks
Rest stops are labelled "Text Stops" - very clever!
... We went to the Baseball Hall of Fame, which was surprisingly small looking to me. Bill's friend, Scott Russell, has a friend who works there, so he left us free tickets and a couple books at the desk. We all went it, Julia and I stayed and took a couple pictures at the sad little Mariner's mock locker and then skedaddled out of there. On the way out, we looked at a couple displays - Babe Ruth and the tribute ...
... house while it was pouring outside. After having breakfast at his diner, we hit the road again towards Utica. We rode about 90km again on our fifth. On the canal, there are several locks and they allow you to camp there for free. We stayed at lock 20 just outside Utica. A very cute little place, where we had the chance to see two ladies play some country music. ...
... in the bathroom for a good ten minutes before going through security. And I still looked depressed because I got a lot more smiles and "have a good flight!"s than usual.
So, here I am in New York. Grandma and Grandpa picked me up and now we're in Brookfield at their house. It feels weird that I'm not going back to Washington in a few weeks but as my smart Grandma says, I'm "moving on to bigger, better things." ...
