We enjoyed this inn, the public space was comfortable for the evening, the front desk people were happy to chat. I love that the windows open. Would have really enjoyed queen beds instead of full size, and a couple more cereal choices at breakfast.

I took a 2-week workshop at Alfred and stayed at the Saxon Inn. The staff was great and accommodated all of my needs! Even stored my stuff for a couple of days while I flew to NYC to meet my husband over the weekend! Highly recommend it. Decor a little "quaint" but very comfortable!

Very nice building, rooms and furniture. Super clean. Excellent quality free breakfast. Very quiet, although Alfred is very quite in the summer. Very helpful staff. Convenient parking. Can't say enough! The land the inn sits on used to be tennis courts and a soccer field. This is a much better use!

I have stayed here numerous times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and well maintained. I especially like the corner rooms with windows on two sides. I look forward to future stays.

A very nice 25 room inn. We had the queen fireplace suite which was quite roomy and lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast is served in a formal dining room, and coffee is available all day. Plenty of parking. A perfect place to stay when visiting the Alfred area.

This is like a Holiday Inn or Best Western motel right in the center of Alfred. Buffet breakfast is included in the room price. The staff was very helpful and friendly and answered all my questions. Definitely the best place to stay in town.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Saxon Inn as we celebrated the wedding of a close relative. The main feeling one gets with the Saxon Inn is similar to a B&B in that the staff is very attentive and personable and the inn is gorgeous in a gorgeous setting. Naturally the rooms are hotel rooms and the breakfast is...

Our son is in school at Alfred University, which is probably the tiniest town I have ever visited - ever. It is in an absolutely gorgeous part of upstate NY, however. The Saxon Inn is located on the Alfred U campus and is a great choice when staying in the area to visit the school or for any other reason....

This hotel is convenient, especially for people visiting. However, I must warn you that the walls are PAPER thin. I could hear the person next door talking on the phone, and had to call the front desk because I could not fall asleep. There is free breakfast in the morning and I was very happy with the food they provided....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfast. I apologize for the thin walls and the noise from the room next to you. I'm glad you contacted the Front Desk, it was a busy weekend and guests were up late. We hope you try us again and enjoy a peaceful nights sleep.
