We stayed here for a college visit and it was just ok. There were inappropriate stains in the bathroom, one bed was much shorter than the other (uncomfortably so). And breakfast took forever and was pretty tasteless. The clerk at the front desk was quite loud and politically outspoken .... not sure we and another guest were feeling the hospitality.

We had reserved a table for the parent's weekend. You have no choice but the brunch and the food is very respectable. Our problem is that neither one of us are big eaters and therefore it becomes an expensive affair. The service is really good and sat us right on time. I had to make the reservation almost a month...

I don't write negative reviews usually but this is something other parents of Colgate students need to avoid. I booked my reservation a month in advance because there isn't a lot of choices during parents weekend. The Inn required a credit card just to make the reservation. When we got there a table for us was unavailable. They provided us... More

Food wasn't great, but the real issue was there was a long blonde hair (human hair) in my lobster roll. Like mixed in with the lobster filling. Which was bland and didn't taste good anyway. The roll came out of a bag, not even local or fresh, despite the bakeries in town. Very sad dinner, which ended with a partial... More

My wife and I decided to go out for a drink, just to get out of the house and relax a little. My wife ordered a breakfast ale (can't remember the name) and I ordered a Racer IPA. Great IPA. That's it. But when the check came we were shocked to see that the total (without tip) came to $19.25!... More

Wonderful atmosphere @ the Inn as the locals call it. We shared a few drinks and the best salads I've ever tested! Can't wait to have my husband take me out now!!

We ate on the bar side which is casual. Great selection of beer and a good mixed menu of sandwiches, burgers and entrees. Service is excellent.

Lovely time spent with cousins. We tried to find a nice restaurant that would be halfway in between. CI fit nicely. I had the tomato basil bisque, the prime rib pannini and tollhouse pie. The pannini was terrific...nicely garlicky. It was especially nice to not feel rushed.

We visited Colgate University and dropped in to the tavern for lunch. We had very good service and good food. I was surprised it was a limited lunch menu but I was still able to find something that suited my taste. We also had desert and the toll house cookie was amazing.
