This is a renovated historic property - as the information on the Hotel's website explains. As such it has some of the quirks of an older building, (e.g. no elevator, so ask for a first floor room if you don't want to do stairs to the second floor), and limited by the space available so rooms are good sized but...

My daughter attended sunny potsdam and I lucked upon the Clarkson Inn. the rooms are something out of the NYC plaza. The beds are soft, comfortable you don't want to move. We had breakfast n our room and it was great ! The housekeeping was great, quiet, restful, relaxing....I love this place.

We went up to Potsdam to visit Clarkson University with our son. It was off season visit for this area. This place was beautiful. It had the old inn style but convenience of a hotel. When we checked in, our room gave us a complimentary water and a few bags of chips. The room was really nice. We had a... More

Stayed at the Clarkson Inn the night of the Vinyl Café show at CPS... We couldn't have been more pleased with the room, the service and the location. A great value for the money. A superior boutique hotel in a small town was a wonderful surprise. Can't be beat by anything in the area if you are visiting the colleges.... More

I have been staying at the Clarkson inn for 13 years periodically. The people are so welcoming and it's definitely one of the cleanest hotels I've ever been in. I've stayed at the best chains in the world and I would rate the Clarkson Inn up there with them. It's so quaint and cozy and am looking forward to them... More

The rooms are a great size for your money. Enjoy the morning breakfast. Then either go out and have an outdoor adventure, visit one of the three colleges in the area, explore a snowmobile trail, or border hop to Canada. Make sure, though, you plan to have at least one afternoon tea in the inn's lobby. Tea, crumpets, scones, and... More

As a graduate from Clarkson University - I can remember staying at this hotel when first visiting the campus with my family as a junior in high school in 2002. I returned to the Clarkson Inn this past weekend while attending the Clarkson v. Union hockey game with my significant other. I had first requested an early check in and... More

I just wanted to say "thank you" for our wonderful stay this weekend. It was our first visit to your hotel and I can not begin to tell you what a nice, relaxing time we had!! From the front desk right down to the housekeeping staff ... it was excellent. 🌟

It was such a pleasure to stay in such a nice hotel and for such a reasonable price. The Clarkson Inn is clean and warm and nicely decorated. My room was warm...it was -14 outside at the time, there was fresh ice in the bucket, a small snack and a bottled water waiting for me. Haley, at the front desk,... More

My wife and I stayed on a Saturday night after bringing our daughter back to SUNY Potsdam. We also went to see a Clarkson Hockey game. The hotel is perfectly situated between the 2 colleges. The room was spacious and clean with an excellent bathroom and vanity area. It has also been updated with a flat screen TV. As typical,... More
