In the Room
Staff was friendly, rooms were clean
no ventilation in bathroom (there was a window but it wouldn't open). Only had 1 inexpensive lock on the door. Not very secure-a little unsettling for this reason
The location was perfect for my visit to Clarkson U. The price was good for the one night stay that was required.
The continental breakfast was no good at all. If packaged pastries and donuts is all that will be offered, you should just default to coffee and tea only.
I had read some negative reviews about the Scottish Inns in Potsdam, NY.. So I was surprised about how clean it was............ The owners were friendly and told me they bought the motel 18 months ago. The breakfast, was ample (toast, cereal, small packaged do nuts, juice, tea and milk). Perhaps complaints should be directed to the former owners. If you are looking for a clean, centrally located place near the colleges, in and around Potsdam NY, this is the place for you.
Clean room, comfortable beds, and welcoming hosts.
Convenient - right off highway
The room was cold, heater took 4 hrs to heat room to 71 degrees. Bedding appeared dirty, toilet did not flush properly, limited hot water. You get what you pay for. Would never stay here again.
location near destination
dirty linen, empty space viz the door and the floor, allowing vermin & bugs to enter, not enough blankets, and extra charge for dogs after we had settled in, and after we had paid cash, allowing the owners to not have to be discounted by the credit card company
cost, free wifi, close to town
Bed was too soft.I sunk in deep.
Friendly owner. Clean rooms.
Had to ask for heater in room to be turned on,each night.
Location to St. Lawrence and Clarkson universities.
Not much to do or see between weekend hockey games.
Beds very uncomfortable...to soft...walls paper thin, you hear everything from adjoining rooms...
Quaint motel. Very clean, just remodeled and the family that runs it were friendly and helpful.
They were very pleasant and friendly. The place was clean and the beds were comfortable.
The towels were not very soft and not very big.
friendly staff reasonably clean convenient location economically priced
due for an update
We were very comfortable. Check in was quick and easy. The room was clean and we appreciated the mini refrigerator and microwave. We were able to get ice and an extra towel as needed. Breakfast was sufficient for us with fruits, juices,coffee and pastries. I loved that we could make phone calls without charge as it gave me a chance to touch base with family!! Because the weather was sleeting, we ordered Dominos pizza and a very nice delivery person came with our dinner~very convenient!
This should not reflect poorly on the Inn, but the night we arrived, it was sleeting and slippery when walking. There were also quite a few sirens that went up and down the road which was probably due to the weather conditions.
Ok for location, rooms are outdated but clean. The breakfast? Just go elsewhere for a decent cup of coffee and a decent bite.... Honestly! You're just paying for the room and the location. WiFi a plus!
