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

My wife and I stayed here en route from Washington DC to Quebec. Clean, quiet (even though we were in the room next to the reception), excellent bathroom. Although the rooms are small, the proprietors have taken steps such as installing flat-screen TVs (a lot of places haven't done this!) to free up wardrobe-top space. A good work table, though...

Convienant to everything in Potsdam but rooms very small. I guess for the price they were adequate because i didn't spend alot of time in my room. Coffee and small pick of breakfast in AM was welcomed. I'd stay again for only a couple days!

I had a really nice stay here. It wasn't busy during my stay. And I thought the price was a bit high considering it was still off season, but it is OK. The family that runs the place is nice. My room (and others I glanced at) were decorated nicely and well maintained. Being an older place there was a... More
