My daughter goes to SUNY Potsdam and my wife and I stay at the Clarkson Inn whenever we come up to visit. Very clean and comfortable and the staff is great. Walking distance to SUNY Potsdam and to Clarkson University. Make sure to stay for breakfast! It seems a bit pricey for the area, but it includes a fresh cooked... More

Clarkson Inn is a great little hotel with pleasant staff who make you feel right at home. The rooms are clean nicely appointed. An alternative to the all to familiar "hotel furnishing" found in chains. The breakfast is cooked to order for $12, pleasant way to start your day, companion had breakfast in-room and it was equally good. Clean robes... More

The Clarkson Inn was immaculate and comfortable. The large room and beautiful lobby area were welcoming and relaxing. We appreciated the microwave and fridge in our room as well as the full tub. The layout of the room works well so one person can shave while someone else is in the shower.

Would like to congratulate the manager and staff of this quaint, timeless hotel. Without a doubt the most spotlessly clean hotel I have stayed in for quite a while.. Friendly, helpful staff. Complimentary tea and coffee available at all times. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

We were very impressed with the Clarkson Hotel. When we arrived the front desk person was warm and welcoming. The room was very impressive: beautiful moldings and furnishing. We also sat by the fire and read and drank tea and coffee. Highly recommended.

The rooms were very nice and the beds and pillows very comfy. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The only problem I could see is that the hotel is very noisy both inside and outside. The website shows a restaurant and a bar at the site but neither have been installed yet.

Charming venue in downtown Potsdam. Walking distance to campus. Lovely furnishings. Helpful staff. Good size rooms. Stay on the parking lot side if you can so the wandering students don't keep you up half the night.

We have stayed at the Clarkson Inn several times and enjoy our visits. The hotel is nicely decorated and the staff is wonderful. The hotel is convenient to the colleges in Potsdam and really not that far to Canton and St. Lawrence University.
