Who does not love the inn? Whether it is a quick lunch during the weekend or a long dinner at night the inn is always fun. Trivia Wednesday's are the best and what I miss most about my time at Colgate. Sunday morning brunch is always a huge hit and the staff is always extremely accommodating. Highly recommend!

If you can get beyond the apparent disinterest of the desk staff, the Colgate Inn is a charming and unique hotel. I submitted a reservation request through the Inn's website and, after ten days without a response, then called the desk. The clerk advised that there were no rooms available on the days I will be in Hamilton. When I... More

First and foremost my sincere apologies in the tardiness of this reply. In a computer upgrade on January 1 to increase our company communications our automatic notifications from Tripadvisor ceased. Another faithful guest brought your review to our attention just this morning. Thank you for your candid review of our front desk’s customer service. Your feedback is invaluable to us,... More

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....
