We really like the Colgate Inn. Hamilton is a charming town and there are few other decent options in the immediate vicinity. The public spaces are great. The lobby is warm and comfortable and the restaurant and bar are excellent. The rooms are very small and can be noisy. We have also had some challenges with the air conditioning in... More

This is my third visit to The Colgate Inn. I stayed before the renovation, right after it and just this week. The room was perfectly comfortable, good bathroom but I paid far more than my last visit and felt a little taken in...I was told that $199. was the rate despite rooms being listed from $129. a night. Since the... More

I stayed overnight with my son, who is looking at Colgate Univ. The room wasn't spacious, but it's an old Inn and thus doesn't have some of the 'cookie cutter' amenities and advantages of a chain. The room was very clean, and nicely furnished. It was a bit on the dark side with two lamps running incandescent bulbs. The The... More

Colgate U has a hometown hotel to be proud of - traditional in style that is in keeping with the history of the village and the university. Clean, well designed rooms, great bar, good meals. I only wish there were more rooms available.

I had recently stayed at the Hamilton Inn for a family wedding. The hotel room I stayed in was a king. It was large with a few chairs and a desk also in there. The bathroom had a large shower ( no tub) and the vanity, sink & mirror were on the outside making it easy for 2 people to... More

I stayed one night in a double room. The beds were a little sqweaky but i used ear plugs so it didn't bother me. The hotel is a beautiful renovated old building. The staff was super nice and the food at the restaurant was delicious

The hotel is simply pretty! The staff is friendly & accommodating, beds were comfortable, & location was perfect for proximity to the wedding we were attending & the town square. The shower was amazing - in short, "water pressure" - that's what is missing from most places these days. The restaurant was fantastic! Try the parmesan truffle fries - you... More

I was at first excited to have booked the last room in the Inn for the Labor Day weekend but my excitement soon turned to disappointment when I arrived after a 5 hour drive to find a cramped little room with the tv on a dresser in the corner and a view of the back roof overlooking the parking lot....

Won an auction for one night and breakfast at The Hamilton Inn, which shares ownership with The Colgate Inn. Reservationist assured that the overnight could be taken at either place, depending on availability. Turns out I had a suite reserved at the Hamilton Inn, but since i wasn't sure, I stopped into the Colgate Inn, as its location is on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Colgate Inn for one night while attending a wedding there. We did have lunch on Friday. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. We stayed in room 23 which was well decorated and clean. The king size bed was a little too soft for my liking. The bathroom was small... More
