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.

From Waterford to Utica, we rode along the Erie Canal trail. A very nice path, which was quite flat for a change, that took us through forests and wooded areas. On our fourth day, we cycled around 90km. We spent our first night inside, at Michael's place, a very kind guy who owns a diner in Fultonville, NY. He showed us around and very kindly let us sleep ...
I had a great time staying on the west side of Washington before I left for New York. We had a family dinner on Wednesday which was perfect except that I was rudely pushed in the pool for no good reason at all. It was kind of funny though. Kind of.
So, I had to let my clothes dry while I spent my entire Thursday packing and sorting all of my stuff. I personally don't think that I have a lot but man, it ...
... fan there is really not much to do in Cooperstown, especially when it is raining cats and dogs!! Tom and Helen did see some Native American Indian art at the fenimore museum and take a trolley ride around town, but it was hard to escape the baseball. But Alex and mark thoroughly enjoyed the baseball hall of fame ( or the basketball hall of fame as the customer service ...
... surprisingly short and no one knows to this day who shot the first gun sparking the revolution. The battle at minute man park/ between concord and back towards Charlestown was fought over 16 miles and went on over a whole day! But we only spent an hour or so there. We arrived at Cooperstown at around 17.30 and headed into town for ...
... other boat at the dock shown here, ate some dinner, and sat down for some much needed rest and relaxation. We have been going non-stop for several days now, so this quiet day was much appreciated.
Some of the scenery we encountered along the way was absolutely beautiful. Here's a photo of one of those scenes.
