Nice, quiet hotel in the middle of Potsdam. Perfect walking distance to downtown restaurants and movie theater is across the street. Although, breakfast is $13 a person and should be included. Kind and helpful staff. Old style feel. Large rooms. Breakfast aside, 5 out of 5, especially for the size of Potsdam.

Beautiful space with historic feel. Very nice people. Typically the inn is pricey for an overnight, but I got a deal so I tried it. I'm glad I did. It is the perfect location for visiting and picking up clarkson student. I have never stayed because of the price, but I feel lucky to have found the discount special during...

Right in the middle of town, movie theater across the street, all the great variety of restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is so very clean and still maintains that great smell you would usually only experience with new hotels. George Lavigne, general manager, always remembers me, and I like that.

We have always appreciated this lovely hotel. Great staff, great atmosphere in the lounge with fireplace . They serve high tea in the afternoon. Classic music playing in the lounge. Our Room was nicely done and the matching bathrobes are always a nice touch

My car was keyed staying only one night at this hotel. I read the reviews and thought it was going to be good. The staff told me this is not the first time but still no cameras. The hotel would help me out at all.

The staff was very accommodating and helpful. They were available and made sure our stay was enjoyable. They were always ready to help with a warm smile. Our room was a delight to come back to. Lots of great eateries within walking distance and very close to the Clarkson campus. Would definitely stay again. It would be our first choice.

The Clarkson Inn is a fabulous boutique hotel that gives attention to every detail. We held my son and new daughter in law's wedding reception here. It was an intimate gathering. The Clarkson manager and staff made sure it was an event to fulfill their dreams. The settings and details were of the highest quality and made the evening magical....

We spent two fantastic nights at the quaint Clarkson Inn because our friend was having her wedding reception there. The hotel room was impeccably clean and elegant, and there were thoughtful touches like little snacks and local goodies left in our room each day. The manager, George, was friendly and very professional. He ensured the reception dinner was absolutely perfect...

My husband travels to Potsdam often and we decided to stay at the Clarkson Inn. You can't beat the location as you can easily walk around Potsdam to shops and restaurants. The hotel and our room was large and immaculate but the decor reminded me of a hotel pretending to be a bed and breakfast. An overly decorated bed and...
