Clean room, comfortable bed, very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful experience. If you are visiting either of the universities, this is pretty much your only option. Fortunately the Saxon Inn is a great place. Feels both old and quaint, but also clean and up to date.

We were in the Wellsville area for a family reunion and places to stay were hard to find as the local Balloon Rally was also going on. Luckily Saxon Inn had some openings. Very nice place and would recommend. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Rooms were very clean.

I was visiting Alfred University with my daughter. From the moment we walked in, I knew we were at the right place. The front desk person was warm and inviting. And the rooms were spotless, with comfortable beds and very nice bathrooms. The breakfast area was casual and comfortable. And they had excellent coffee! I highly recommend the Saxon Inn.

I have frequented the Saxon Inn many times in the past 4 years. My son has just graduated from Suny Alfred. The Saxon Inn has always been clean and inviting. The staff are attentive and friendly. They have always gone above and beyond to assist with reservations. The Saxon Inn is conveniently located right on the campus of Alfred University.... More

Stayed at this Bed and Breakfast during the Senior Art presentation in May. We were pleasantly surprised on how clean and up to date the Inn was. The beds were very comfortable and there was hot fresh coffee in the lobby at all times. The breakfast was very simple with the choice of a couple of breads, a couple of... More

Attractive property with good breakfast, Ok beds, decent shower and pleasant staff. Clean overall and convenient placement in the center of town and campus. Thankfully the folks next door went to sleep at a reasonable hour because you could hear the entire conversation the walls were so thin.

I stayed here with my son during a visit to the local university. The hotel staff was incredibly nice. They were very welcoming. In the evening they had coffee and cookies in the lobby. The room was nicely appointed, but the mattress was very, very soft. We stayed only for the night, but I would return. Though the options in... More

By far, probably the nicest and ONLY 'non-budget' Hotel in the area. I attended Alfred State 20+ years ago and came back to the area for a family reunion in Hornell. Little did I realize there were no full-service hotels and few with any amenities whatsoever. We opted to try the Saxon Inn. There are no amenities at the Saxon... More

Alfred is a strange place with a little rural town sandwiched in a valley between the modern campuses of Alfred University on one hillside and Alfred State on the other. Visitor lodging is in short supply. The Saxon Inn is the only real way to stay within the bucolic bubble of small town college campus ambiance. With luck, the soon-to-be-constructed... More

We've stayed at the Saxon 2-3 times and have thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The rates have increased over the yrs. to where we can no longer afford to stay in the future. We're very sorry but this motel is too expensive for us.
