I stayed overnight with my son, who is looking at Colgate Univ. The room wasn't spacious, but it's an old Inn and thus doesn't have some of the 'cookie cutter' amenities and advantages of a chain. The room was very clean, and nicely furnished. It was a bit on the dark side with two lamps running incandescent bulbs. The The...

Colgate U has a hometown hotel to be proud of - traditional in style that is in keeping with the history of the village and the university. Clean, well designed rooms, great bar, good meals. I only wish there were more rooms available.

I had recently stayed at the Hamilton Inn for a family wedding. The hotel room I stayed in was a king. It was large with a few chairs and a desk also in there. The bathroom had a large shower ( no tub) and the vanity, sink & mirror were on the outside making it easy for 2 people to...

I stayed one night in a double room. The beds were a little sqweaky but i used ear plugs so it didn't bother me. The hotel is a beautiful renovated old building. The staff was super nice and the food at the restaurant was delicious

The hotel is simply pretty! The staff is friendly & accommodating, beds were comfortable, & location was perfect for proximity to the wedding we were attending & the town square. The shower was amazing - in short, "water pressure" - that's what is missing from most places these days. The restaurant was fantastic! Try the parmesan truffle fries - you...

I was at first excited to have booked the last room in the Inn for the Labor Day weekend but my excitement soon turned to disappointment when I arrived after a 5 hour drive to find a cramped little room with the tv on a dresser in the corner and a view of the back roof overlooking the parking lot....

Won an auction for one night and breakfast at The Hamilton Inn, which shares ownership with The Colgate Inn. Reservationist assured that the overnight could be taken at either place, depending on availability. Turns out I had a suite reserved at the Hamilton Inn, but since i wasn't sure, I stopped into the Colgate Inn, as its location is on...

My wife and I stayed at the Colgate Inn for one night while attending a wedding there. We did have lunch on Friday. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We stayed in room 23 which was well decorated and clean. The king size bed was a little too soft for my liking. The bathroom was small...

Exceeded expectations! Our room was fantastic, food in restaurant was very good and overall service was excellent. Full use of university facilities a bonus. Very peaceful stay...the Colgate Inn is a great showpiece for the university.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I was not going to book this hotel. However, my first choice was full so I ended up here and so glad I did. First of all, the location can't be beat if visiting the school. It literally is across the street. The Inn is charming and historic. It recently underwent renovations and everything...
