On finding the Saxon Inn full on a recent visit to the area we opted for this, a property once well-known as the Squirrel's Nest. At one time it was a reasonable place to stay for parents and others visiting Alfred, but sadly it has deteriorated to the point where I would not want to return (and I've been willing... More

In all my life this was the absolute worst motel considering we paid $80 for this dump. I couldve accepted all the bad things about the room. What topped itto off was my fiance waking up to bug bites all over his face and body. It didnt have a shower head. Water kept going ice cold to scolding hot. The... More

What a dump! The 1st thing I did was look for bedbugs. The room needed paint to get rid of the ground in dirt on the walls and trim. The tile ceiling was in need of replacing as it was starting to fall in and to get rid of the water stain. The floor you could have falling through if... More

If newly renovated means they glued rubber baseboard to the bathtub in a lame attempt to hide the mildew and mold, then you bet its been "renovated". The place is scary inside-we found a steak in the freezer that I'm sure had thawed and spoiled as the whole room smelled bad. We bought spray to kill the smell, but when... More

I stayed there recently for alumni weekend. It's not the greatest hotel but the people are very friendly. It's close to the campuses and easy to find. It's a college town with limited amenities! The Saxon isn't that much better to be honest and it's way more expensive. It's a good place to stay if you are on a budget... More

This is a family owned business. The mother and daughter are very nice and attentative. However, the amenities are very poor. We had to stay in Alfred, NY for one week. The rooms are NOT newly renovated as stated in the local advertisement circulars. There are stains on the mattresses, unfinished plywood baseboards, stains in the drop ceilings. The furniture...

I've never been motivated to write reviews of places I've stayed at in the past, but my experience at this inn was so positive that I feel obligated to write a short note in hopes that it will encourage more people to stay there. I arrived quite late at the inn in the midst of a snow storm, and the... More
