We took a short ride from Syracuse, NY to celebrate with a birthday breakfast. When we asked if the patio was available for seating, the hostess was more than happy to show to our table. With temperatures in the low 90's the awning cover kept the area very comfortable. We were soon joined by more patrons wanting to also sit...

With a classic style, and two eateries on premises, this lodging option can accommodate a variety of tastes and needs. The pub has a nice fire place and often live music. The room was clean, and recently updated. With an elegant style, the business needs are still covered: meeting room, wifi, room service, etc.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Colgate Inn for one night over Valentine's Day weekend. The inn is beautifully situated on the town square, and has a feeling of elegance and warmth immediately upon entering the lobby. The rates were affordable, and we stayed in a beautiful suite (The Falcone Suite) which was impressively designed, had a large bathroom...

This hotel is in downtown Hamilton, NY. It's a quaint town. It's only a 10 minute walk to Colgate University. Within a few blocks of the hotel, there's a bookstore, coffee shop, several restaurants and a gorgeous town green. The rooms in the hotel are spacious, clean and quaint. My room was super comfortable -- and there were jacuzzi jets...

I am definitely coming back to this hotel. Easy to get to from Albany and this small town is beautiful. You must eat there as the food and drink selection were amazing. The rooms were beautiful and warm. Loved the hardwood floors in your room! Can't wait to get back

My wife and I stayed at the Colgate Inn for one night for my nephew's wedding. Clean and comfortable overall. No in-room coffee, no safe, small bathroom. The rate was $160 for a fairly small room with a queen bed. Strangely enough, my dad, by himself, had a much bigger room with a king size bed. Go figure. BTW, the...

This is a pretty little inn. The bathrooms are traditional but small. Bedrooms were the same. It is very similar to a bed and breakfast. For the area it is the best hotel. It has modern conveniences but still has the old inn feel. Loved the breakfasts here and service was very good. A must stay in the area if...

My son and I recently toured Colgate University and spent the night at this lovely inn. It is situated right in the heart of Hamilton, about 1/4 mile from the university. Check in was efficient and welcoming, the rooms are very well appointed with flat screen tvs and updated bathrooms. The bed was extremely comfortable with nice linens. We enjoyed...

Tavern/restaurant: awesome! Decor, lobby, friendliness: awesome! Quiet sleep: not good The HVAC does not allow the temp to be set below 68 and even worse doesn't allow the fan to be set to permanently "on". The hallways and walls are a bit noisy so you can't sleep unless you bring your own white noise machine. Mattresses are also softer than...
