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.

Thank you again for making my stay wonderful as usual. My yearly trip to Alfred for my sorority alumni event is always made more pleasurable because of your staff. I always see the same staff members and they always remember my friends and I. We will see you again next year.

We always stay at The Saxon Inn when we have a horse show at Alfred. The proximity to the equestrian center is great. The rooms are always clean and the staff is friendly and courteous. Thank you so much.

I was there when my daughter visited Alfred University. I definitely will stay there again if she ends up attending the school. The staff was pleasant and professional and the room was nice. Nothing amazing here, just a clean, good place to stay.
