My husband and I recently stayed at the inn on our last night of our week-long 20th anniversary road trip. It was definitely the nicest place that we stayed. We had a room facing the water which made the comfortable room even more enjoyable. Amenities like robes and slippers, daily ice and snacks service were unparalleled. Most unexpected and appreciated... More

This is a lovely hotel, clean and nicely appointed, with a gracious and charming staff. Ask for a room on the water side, as the view is quite nice. Breakfast is $12, which is a very good value for a beautiful buffet in a gorgeous dining room. We only stayed one night, but would have been happy to stay longer.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Clarkson Inn while we were on our honeymoon last week. Very conveniently located downtown, easy to walk to restaurants and shopping. The Inn was cozy and clean -- and very pink! Although the décor is a bit old fashioned, it has an elegance that lends it character. We decided to pay for the... More

Traveled to up state New York just recently and found this Inn on the internet. Their web site was very descriptive which made me want to say there and I'm glad I did. The Clarkson Inn is a very elegant and charming Inn. We stayed for a week and at the end of our stay we did not want to... More

There are slim pickins in Potsdam for hotels and if you have a student attending Clarkson or SUNY Potsdam, this is a choice spot. They book up very quickly but once you stay, you get have a better chance of staying again. Kind of a throw back place, they do send email reservations to you, but on premises they are... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple nights 2 weeks ago. This was our second time here, and this time instead of 1 night, we stayed 2 nights. We didn't actually have anything IN Potsdam this time; we picked this inn as a midway point between Montreal and Buffalo because we liked staying here so much the previous... More

We just recently spent two nights in this lovely inn. I was in the area for a family reunion and just wanted a clean basic room for my stay. The staff was wonderful, the room very large and clean with a comfy bed great bath products (go figure). We had a fridge in our room and the staff provided us... More

Since Lake Placid was full with all of the Ironman participants, we had to look further afield. Our small group decided to book the Clarkson Inn in Potsdam, NY as the base for a weekend of hiking in the Adirondacks. While it was just over an hour to drive to our high peaks trailhead, we thoroughly enjoyed the stay at... More

So easy to find and right by the river. The room was extremely comfortable, the staff were wonderful and they have a lovely lounge area where you can sit all day if you like and drink tea, read the paper and snack on the cookies they provide. Fantastic.
