Let's be honest ... for the cost of this hotel you should not expect the place to be as nice as the Marriott or Hilton or other large chains in the area. But the place is clean, the beds are comfortable and the folks there are friendly and nice. The place is a little older than most properties but was... More

This motel was ok, there aren't many choices in the area to choose from. It is located very close to Clarkson University, so it was easy to get to after hockey. The beds were really comfy, but the bottom sheet kept sliding off. I know some places don't use fitted sheets anymore but waking up on a mattress is a... More

We were travelling through the area a few months back and we needed a place to stay for one night to rest and recuperate. We saw the reviews for this place were pretty rough but the most recent reviews were better, so we figured considering it is very inexpensive and we only wanted one night, we would give it a...

For the area, I thought this motel was a good price. The beds were VERY comfy, and there was a breakfast included. The breakfast was a bit uninspiring, but there was fruit, coffee, and some packaged danishes and muffins. Enough to tide us over. I do wish I had access to coffee before 7am when breakfast was offered. The location... More

The lobby smelled, the shower door didn't close, the water went from hot to cold, the hair dryer had sparks coming out. The lights went out on their own. Out side lights by all the motel doors were blinking in the early hour of the morning. I could keep going like not wanting to give us a receipt for cash... More

The inn is actually a motel along a highway. I was not impressed with it at first but then realized it was clean and comfortable. It had a dorm style refrigerator and small microwave. There were 2 queen size beds, 2 chairs, a desk, bureau and a TV. Bathroom was small but adequate. The breakfast area could be improved a... More

Nothing else really around Potsdam. Went up for orientation of Suny Potsdam so we weren't in the room all that much. It had a basic set up, two beds, small bathroom with small shower but it was clean and it served it's purpose. No, I don't really like staying in rooms like this but I have to say the bed... More

We stayed one night in a double bedded, non-smoking room while our eldest daughter had an overnight at a local college. We brought our 9lb Havanese which they charged an extra $15. This motel is small and basic but completely met our needs for our stay. It was a cold winter night and our room was plenty warm. Check in... More

The Scottish Inns Potsdam is a good small motel. Close to shopping it was a good inexpensive place to stay for a quick visit. The rooms were clean, large LCD TV ... free wi-fi ... and the thing that impressed me was that I purchased through Hotels dot com and there was a no cancellation polity within 24 hours. But... More

Under new management and newly renovated. Room I occupied was of a good size for one or two. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, new flat screen TV was wall mounted and excellent for watching from bed. There was ample room to place suite cases, Room was "L" shaped with bottom section having a decent size desk and two sitting... More
